Author David De Angelis’s search for a cure for nearsightedness was both professional and personal, since he suffered from the disease himself. An expert in muscular work dynamics, he discovered through extensive testing and an immersion in decades of scientific studies that working the extrinsic ocular muscles could preserve sight and re-educate the eyes toward better vision. He came to understand the importance of retinal defocus for transforming ocular refractive status. In this book, the author shares both the science and the “secret”–progressive retinal defocus technique–of how he was able to reverse his own myopia. The system’s efficacy, he says, comes from the fact that it directly intervenes with the causes that generate myopia onset and development (overaccommodative/near-point stress). When adequately stimulated by the simple exercises presented in the book, ocular refractive capability leads to gradual strengthening of focusing capability and gradual decreasing of refractive error. Written in straightforward language, and featuring an extensive section on the scientific research in this field, The Secret of Perfect Vision offers a proven program of healing to the millions of people afflicted with this condition.

Industry Reviews

"The body is self-healing. This book provides a roadmap for recovering that miraculous power. As an optometrist and vision scientist I can attest to the effectiveness of this work."--Jacob Liberman, OD, PhD, author of Light: Medicine of the Future, Take Off Your Glasses and See, and Wisdom from an Empty Mind"Vision is a complex, mysterious, and marvelous process that is still not fully understood, even by those in the scientific and medical communities. I welcome David De Angelis's contributions to furthering this understanding. The fact that his approach has worked for him is further proof that each of us has the power to regain better vision and sharp focus--a message I've been advocating for the last thirty years."--Martin Sussman, president and founder of Cambridge Institute for Better Vision and author of The Program for Better Vision; www.bettervision.com
