Banyen's Description: 

Liberman, a recognized authority on vision care (and former optometrist), 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 (many of which are taught in this book) 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.

Even people with 20/20 eyesight may have very poor “vision.” So whether you wear corrective lenses or not, this book can guide you to seeing more clearly and living more effortlessly....

In our society, poor vision seems to have become a socially acceptable, even normal, substitute for self-awareness and emotional expression. This book will show how the suppression of feelings and perceptions has created the physical, psychological, and energetic roots of the current epidemic of vision problems. I’ll also describe what I’ve found to be the most important aspect of vision improvement: the returning of our attention to those experiences that we have “blurred” out of our consciousness.

Take Off Your Glasses and See helps us to rediscover what it truly means to see, not only the world outside, but also the world within. It integrates science with personal experience and applies the methods of mind/body medicine to a problem that virtually everyone will face at some point.

“The sensitivity, deep humanity, and exquisite insight contained in Dr. Liberman’s wonderful work make it a manual for a whole new order of being.” —Jean Houston, author of The Possible Human

Publisher’s Description: 

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. Libermans approach can help you join the thousands who have escaped from the self-defeating cycle of poor vision.

Drawing on his own experiences and the success of the people he has treated, Liberman reveals how the fundamental self-healing properties of the body/mind connection can change the way you see the world. Liberman focuses on the intimate connection between "eyesight" and "insight" and makes it clear that changing our awareness and perceptions is the best "prescription" of all. Illustrated.
