To learn more about TMS and PPD, and to help you figure out if you have it, visit our An Introduction to TMS page and watch the video there. Some more guidance in figuring out if this approach is right for you can be found in the video at the top of our So You Think You Might Have TMS page.

Vision Problems referenced in TMS Books

  • On page 125 of "Rapid Recovery from Back and Neck Pain" by Fred Amir, Fred writes:

(..) he was able to demonstrate in thousands of patients that tension can cause an error in refraction (eg, nearsightedness). In fact, he points out that the lens has very little to do with the refraction error. It is the eye muscles that shorten or lengthen the eye for better vision. I found Dr Bates' arguments to be almost exactly the same as Dr Sarno's, except that Dr Bates' apply to the eye instead of the back.

Note though that Fred's book is about back pain, and his book is not recommended reading for people exclusively interested about vision. Fred recommends these books:

Better Eyesight Without Glasses by Dr. William Bates (1971)

The Art of Seeing by Aldous and Laura Huxley (1982)
