Without Glasses at Any Age
The Natural Method to
Near Vision Clarity
by Esther Joy van der Werf
Foreword by Ray Gottlieb, O.D., Ph.D.
A new book on how to overcome presbyopia and reading challenges.
Watch two TV interviews (30 mins
each, on LA Talk Live).
Do you hate those readers, tend to lose them, and wish
read without glasses again? Then this book is for you!
Imagine easily reading menus by candlelight and impressing your
friends by doing so with your own healthy eyes, free from crutches.
Or imagine no longer peering over glasses to see people across
the room. Won’t that be nice?!
If these thoughts appeal to you, this book is for you! Whether
your age is 46-ish or 86+, and even if you are only six and
just learning to read, this book can be a valuable tool for
helping you get past your reading challenges. The methods outlined
in this book are simple, easy to learn and just as easy to apply.
It does take some time and persistence, but the rewards are
huge – a return to natural clear vision, healthier eyes,
and easy, glasses-free reading.
This book conveniently starts with large print so you are more
likely to begin reading without glasses, and the print size
then reduces so gradually that you will soon find yourself reading
smaller print than you thougth possible!
Without Glasses at Any Age is available now.

Below are excerpts from the many

"This is an amazing book.
It teaches you how to improve your eyesight no matter how old
you are – and it's easy!" - G. Snoxall,
"Excellent book. Well and clearly written."
- D. Bergkamp
"Simple and effective. I use Esther's techniques
for the last 13 years almost daily and at age 74 do not need
- Mike White (from breathing.com)
"Great book. I've read and used several
vision improvement books, including Bates', and taken personal
instruction in vision improvement. This was the best book and
the most helpful. It's very good at providing the necessary
understanding and the included charts and examples are indispensable."
- Lupe Escamilla
"I was pleasantly surprised how soon my
eyes adjusted to the gradually decreasing print size, making
my vision sharper, more flexible and feeling relaxed. Truly
transformative !" - 'dcat'
"I'm delighted with your book, Read Without
Glasses at Any Age!
I'm 69 years old, and can read the finest print on labels, thanks
to my practice of the methods you advocate in your book."
- Elizabeth Abraham, NVE
"...if you want to improve
your vision, this is required reading, and your time will be
amply rewarded." - A. Noble
"One of the single most effective
tools in my becoming glasses free, Esther has a unique and practical
perspective on the application of the Bates Method. A must read
for anyone who seeks to no longer be wearing eyeglasses."
- Laurie S.
"The advice on restoring
eye vision works. The book is useful, helpful, and well written."
Honestly, I didn't even follow half of the protocols in Read Without Glasses and my eyes became sharper and clearer. I can't imagine how much would change if I actually did all of it. It is not just a book of eye exercises (which it does include), but more of a teaching guide on HOW to use the eyes to maintain and/or improve vision. I highly recommend it.
