Présentation de l'éditeur
This revolutionary new look at vision will broaden your understanding of how you see and how you can see without your glasses or contact lenses.
Take Off Your Glasses and See shows you how to free yourself from the crutch of prescription lenses, to build your self-confidence and awareness, and to open up your inner and outer vision in order to see more clearly.
Jacob Liberman, an internationally recognized authority on holistic vision care, explains how most vision problems are the result of an unconscious decision to "close your eyes" to emotional discomfort or pain, and how increasingly powerful corrective lenses only encourage eyesight to withdraw even further. By removing lenses and practicing breath- and movement-awareness techniques to shift your perception, you can reintegrate the original disruption in the mind/body system. Dr. Liberman’s approach can help you join the thousands who have escaped from the self-defeating cycle of poor vision.

In order to help you, the reader of this review, gain a little insight into the nature of the main emphasis of this book I wish to share with you a couple of personal experiences.
I was prescribed reading glasses when I was 15. At that time I intuitively felt into "why do people end up with deteriorated eyesight?" -- why is my eye-sight failing?. Intuitively I knew that in most instances it was literally the result of "not wanting to see" something within my world and/or within myself. Within less than six months I no longer needed my glasses and now can't wear them (as they no longer "correct" my vision, but distort it).
About 8 years ago I met a friend of mine when she was 22. She had thick glasses that she had to wear at all times if she was to see much in her world. She'd had them since age 6. They got stronger and stronger every few years. She was convinced (like most people) that this was "normal" and she'd have these for the rest of her life. In talking to her about matters of health and healing, I mentioned that I felt her challenged eye-sight was the result of her not wishing to see something from her childhood. I felt it was likely related to her father (who had walked out on her family when she was young). (Perhaps I could qualify that comment by saying that, among other things, I work as an intuitive healer).
She thought this idea to be quite ridiculous. A few days later we went to a 2nd hand book store. I found in there the book I am now reviewing. After flicking through it I quickly recognised that Liberman had very similar views on eyesight to myself. I bought it and gave it to my friend to read. I also read it myself. Within no more than 4 weeks after reading this book she has not worn her glasses since. She had to literally throw them away as they were no longer a suitable prescription. She has been reading, driving, living, etc., without all glasses every since (that was 8 years ago). To her disappointment she also could no longer wear her expensive light-sensitive prescription sunglasses. Of course, she was happy to not need the prescription lenses any more...
I will add that she didn't have to do much in the way of eye exercises. She did learn and practice doing what Liberman calls "Open Focus". I feel this may be a good practice for all people -- glasses or not. It simply involves relaxing ones focus so that it is not drilling down onto the object/view at hand, but rather takes in the entire field of ones vision at all times (at least, whilst in open focus,,, which can become an ongoing way of viewing the world).
I am not suggesting that all people who read this book will have the same dramatic results as my friend. I am suggesting that it is entirely possible though, based on witnessing her first-hand experience, and based on the many accounts Liberman shares in the book. The probability of this will, however, depend on you and how ready and willing you are to see the world in a new way, and on just what factors (physically, mentally, emotionally) are affecting your eyesight. We're each different in that regard. What I do wish to share with you is that what Liberman explores in this book is, in my experience, an accurate view of the metaphysical aspect of eyesight and vision. I do not consider this book a guaranteed answer to failing or poor eyesight. It does, however, represent a very real possibility to heal the eyes. Even if you try everything in this book and find your physical eyesight remains much the same, I suspect you may still be grateful for a changed view of the world through Liberman's introduction to understanding more about the body-mind connection.
>> Not for everyone, for sure <<
For people that rigidly or cynically adhere to a purely physical/materialist view of the world, this book may not be compatible with your world view. So please be forewarned that this might not be the book you are looking for. If, however, you are open to the time-honoured perspective that there is "far more to life than meets the eye" (no pun intended) then this book is written in such a way, and presented in such a way (by a professional practising optometrist), that I am sure you will find it of great value. Liberman has a great deal of experience in this field... both as a trained optometrist and as someone that broke away from the conventions of his profession and has since helped significant numbers of people free themselves from the need to wear glasses.
I give this book my highest recommendation to anyone with poor eye sight, who is genuinely open to and interested in taking on a deeper understanding of the nature human of eye sight, and to then literally "take your glasses off and see". In my experience, this is a fantastic book.
I wish you all the best success in regaining your precious eye-sight.

P.S. I have over the years come across people who have benefitted their eyesight using herbs too. There's a formula by Dr. John Christopher that reportedly has good results for some people. It can be taken internally and also used (diluted in distilled water) directly in the eyes. [Please research that method of application before trying it]. It has cayenne pepper in it which WILL cause some discomfort. It is, however, perfectly okay... just a strong sensation caused by the cayenne interacting with nerves... as opposed to the result of actual "burning". If that sounds a bit too far left of centre for you... please be sure to research first]. The formula in question is this: Herbal Eyebright Extract - 1 oz - Liquid
It was interesting to learn how optometrists work, basically bumping up your perscription by a quarter diopter each year. And he points out how "blindly" dependant on our glasses we become, like crutches, and how much narrower our vision is with them.
I very much enjoyed his holistic perspective on vision. That vision involves more than the eyeball. I don't know how many people will actually gain 20/20 vision from his book, but it's left me with much food for thought about alternative healing posibilities with regard to poor vision.
Today I don't need glasses, last week I tested 20/20 and I do not need reading glasses. I can't say that all of improvement was due to the methods and insights found in this book since I have been also taking Red Wine Complex supplements for several months and view 3D stereograms daily. But I have practiced the simple and quick 'open focus', tracing, the Tibetian Wheel and palming exercises found in this book and now have no doubt that vision can be improved.
Update 2016: Six months ago I had an annual checkup at the VA. When they tested my eyes they were very surprised to find my vision 20/20, tp paraphrase what I was told,, it was refreshing and unusual for them to "see" this! Still I can also read the extreme;y small fonts with no change since I wrote this review 6 years ago.
