The Bates Method was a revelation for me. It gave me back my good vision, my freedom from glasses and my belief in my own ability to help and heal myself!


Charlotte trained as a Bates Teacher in 2004, after experiencing a life-changing shift from ten years of blur, to total clarity, through the Bates Method. Since then, she’s taught people from all walks of life how to improve their vision too, and the results constantly amaze her!

Background - my story

I was 25 when my vision deteriorated, and it was a very unwelcome surprise! I refused to wear glasses unless I absolutely had to, so I simply had to put up with living my life in a blur. Over the next ten years my vision became progressively worse, until it reached a point at which I could no longer pretend I could manage life successfully on a day to day basis without glasses. I felt very anxious and unhappy about this. I’d tried a few Bates lessons a few years before, had noticed that it worked, but as my vision wasn’t too bad at that point, I didn’t continue with it, semi-forgot about it, and just got on with my busy life. Eventually, I decided to give the Bates Method a proper try. I bought Dr Bates’ book and did all the exercises, and after just a few intensive weeks, I’d managed to improve my vision back to 20:20! (My optician later shook my hand!)

I first noticed it when I was walking down a London street and found that I could see people’s faces clearly again – amazing! And I noticed how the sunlight glinted and sparkled on the metal of the cars parked on the road - another wonderful moment. I was overjoyed! The Bates Method was a revelation for me - it gave me back my good vision, freedom from glasses, and a strengthened belief in my own ability to change my life and heal myself.
