Born legally blind to deaf parent, Meir Schneider, PhD. LMT is teaching the benefits of eye exercises to prevent eye strain in a world of bright - screened -electronic junkies. "Vision for Life" will be a free talk at Depot Bookstore & Café Sept. 19.
Released by Dr. Meir Schneider Eye strain is an ever increasing concern for Americans with the use of computers, reading eBooks, or texting on our cell phones. Staring at the computer all day is horrible on your eyes. All those brightly colored pixels clashing with the lighting around you is a recipe for eye fatigue and strain.
Eye strain can be very annoying most times, but the good news is Dr. Meir Schneider is giving a free talk called Vision for Life at Depot Bookstore & Café in Mill Valley on September 19, 2013 from 5:30-7:00 p.m. to help.
Meir Schneider, PhD. LMT, was born with cataracts and other serious vision problems to deaf parents. After five unsuccessful surgeries on the lenses of his eyes, which left them shattered and filled with scar tissue, doctors pronounced his condition hopeless and he was certified permanently legally blind.
He performed his reading and schoolwork in Braille. Inside, he never relinquished his dream of gaining sight.
At age 17, Meir learned the Bates Method of eye exercises. He practiced them with a diligence that probably no one had ever applied to them before, up to 13 hours a day, undeterred by the opposition and skepticism of family and physicians.
To this he added his own regimen of self-massage and movement.
An internationally respected therapist and educator, Meir is the founder and director of the School for Self-Healing in San Francisco, http://self-healing.org and the author of The Natural Vision Improvement Kit, Movement for Self-Healing, Yoga for Your Eyes, Meir Schneider’s Miracle Eyesight Method, Self-Healing: My Life and Vision and the principal author of The Handbook of Self-Healing.
