    Natural Vision Correction: Beyond the Hope & Hype

    Glasses or No Glasses? The Bottom Line continued...

    The question isn’t "Does natural vision correction work?" says Bethesda ophthalmologist Rachel Bishop, MD. She says the real issue is: Why wouldn’t you wear glasses or contacts if they could help you see better right away?

    “For somebody to say, ‘Hmm, I want to put off the need for reading glasses, so I’m just going to strain, and not use reading glasses or distance glasses because I want to train my muscle to be as active as possible ...’ If you have enough bandwidth in your life to not have great vision in the meantime ... you’re not hurting yourself," Bishop says.
