Program Actvity


Natural Vision Improvement (NVI) or Bates method is an improvement cum practice-centric course. This holistic method was started by Dr William H Bates, a well distinguished eye surgeon or ophthalmologist in 1919.

It entails practicing techniques that mimic human visual actions such as yawning, breathing and blinking. A variety of techniques that encompass these human actions will be taught and executed by the students in a step-wise as well as fun and enjoyable manner as deemed desirable.

The principles underlying such actions will also be mentioned in class. This is an opportunity to relearn the natural habits of vision. The student is responsible for what he is taught; to be integrated in his daily activity of vision-seeking in order to benefit from this course.

This course is not diagnosis, treatment, prescribing, therapy, counseling, or determination of function.

NVI aids like card games, small balls, colourful pictures or story’s articles etc will be provided.
