The Interview with David de Angelis

What pushed you to write this book?

I wanted to share my successful experience about scientific and real possibility of lessening and even complete recovering from refractive errors (as I did with my Myopia).I would like, somehow, to awaken the people and show them a way for healing their refractive errors but also to let them understand that a great many things written by academic authorities isn’t the absolute truth. Conventional glasses are not what they want us to believe (a way to heal our sight) but just a palliative remedy, which does nothing else but worsen the initial refractive error (there are huge, important studies on the issue by Medina, A.- (1987) A model for emmetropization: The effects of correcting lenses. Acts Ophtalmol. 65, 565 – 571. Medina, A. and Fariza, E. (1993) Emmetropization as a first-order feedback system. Vision Res.33, 21 – 26.).

What do you expect from your readers?

I expect everyone who has the eyes for seeing-to see and all those who have the ears for hearing – to listen. Whoever has the sense to do it now, has a new way of healing, besides the famous Bates Method. Apart the price of the book, using this method costs nothing in monetary terms. It is true that a considerable degree of personal commitment and effort is required to do the specific exercises.

Do you think that the researchers in ophthalmology or the ophthalmologists themselves could react?

There is no doubt that I will not be appreciated by all those who are stuck to the old and obsolete theories on human eye’s functioning. The human eye is often compared to photo camera with fixed focusing, but it isn’t so. Eminent authors of scientific studies on this issue and all the results that I’ve achieved personally, prove that’ it is just a “partial” concept. The eye can change its refractive status including changing its focal length. Speaking in technical terms it means that the length of an eye and therefore its capability of focus-change depends on the kind of stimuli it is subjected to, on the regular base (The Theory of Accommodative Balance). Numerous studies of numerous animal species have proven it: myopic and hyperopic stimuli lead to myopia and hyperopia development in primates (an humans) over time.

These results are due to the scientifically proved fact that retina undergoes specific adaptations and shifting, depending on the position of focal point of an image. Therefore, the eye isn’t a kind of photo-camera with fixed focusing but a very sophisticated photo-camera with auto-focusing. Masterly working on the position of focus (through a suitable work with gradual Retinal Defocus), by time, we can get at changing “default” adjustment, which is actually, the usual one. Whichever organ, according to SAID Principle (Specific Adaptation to the Imposed Demand), gets used to any stimulus, if it is strong enough and repeated in time. The eyes are not the exception.

What could the professionals (ophthalmologists and the researchers on ophthalmology) be thinking? I’ve written Power Vision System also for them, so as to provide the new conception in ophthalmology in order to change their point of view towards vision. By understanding the true meaning of the experimental data, the appreciation of the problem can change. This could lead towards a broad-based scientific approach that would reduce our dependence on a minus-lens palliative and find a true and better solution by methods advocated in this book.

The Power Vision System, masterly using positive lenses for myopes, may have a great effect in Myopia prevention. Myopia is very spread nowadays, actually because of our being exposed to constant near-point stress (the theory of Accommodative Balance).
