 NEW SCIENTIST Vision Book Review

THE POWER BEHIND YOUR EYES by  Robert-Michael Kaplan, O.D., M.Ed., FCOVD.

From a Review titled: Feel better, see better by Judith Hampson - reported
in New Scientist, 30 March, 1996

3Patients who came to Kaplan to be treated for eye problems often turned
out to be more interested in deeper issues in their lives. Changes in home
or career often accompanied improvements. Clinical results with
documentation go far beyond the anecdotal. A double-blind trial conducted
at Oregon1s  Pacific University College of Optometry found an average of
30 percent improvement in measured eyesight in a group of 44 people taking
part in the programme.

Kaplan1s own research suggest that structural alterations in the eye occur
up to nine months after the perceptual changes, and is the subject of
clinical trials of more than 30 North American optometrists. If confirmed,
these findings could overturn vision therapies that treat the eyes as
little more than simple cameras. In behavioural optometry, eye deformation
is seen not as the root cause of visual defects but as the end result of
misperceptions from the brain and mind.2

Price $16.95 U.S. Paperback: 180 pages 26 Black and white illustrations:
82 X 102
ISBN 0 89281 536 1. See Web Page http://www.***.com/

Because the  instrumentation isn't sensitive enough to detect the
structural changes occurring first?

So?  BOs' minds run backward.  Seeing an effect as a cause *is* a
misperception of the brain/mind.

Oh, that's what those mental misperceptions look like!  It takes 26
illustrations to see this?
