Meet Someone Who Can Instantly Improve their Eyesight, Proving Eyesight is Not Fully a Genetic Trait
by Greg Marsh
Most of us have been told that poor vision is due to poor genetics. Here is surprising evidence that glasses may not be so inevitable as we’ve been led to believe.
People with Multiple Personalities Can Change their Eyesight Spontaneously
Several studies show that people with multiple personalities often change their eyesight as quickly as they change their persona. Obviously these vision changes are not caused by genetics, since the same person with the same eyes can suddenly degrade or improve their eyesight.
One personality may need strong glasses, while another does not need glasses at all. Dr. Bennet Braun, who pioneered in the controversial field of multiple personalities, said ''Many patients have told me they have a drawer full of eyeglasses at home, and they never are quite sure which to bring when they go out.”
Researchers M.H. Birnbaum and K. Thomann K. noted that “Differences in visual function include variability in visual acuity, refraction, oculomotor status, visual field, color vision, corneal curvature, pupil size, and intraocular pressure in the various personality states of MPD subjects as compared to single personality controls.”
Even Crossed Eyes and Color Blindness Appear and Disappear
Researcher S.D. Miller described these interesting cases. One woman had a five-year-old personality that included a crossed eye. The condition was absent whenever she shifted to her 17 or 35 year old personalities. A man’s left eye turned outward in one personality after being injured in a fight. The condition disappeared in the other personalities with no trace of muscle imbalance.
Dr. Braun reported another case of a young woman who was colorblind for blue and green in one personality, a problem that ended with the successful treatment of her multiple-personality condition.
Eyesight Apparently Worsens Due to Psychological Trauma
Multiple personalities (officially now called “Dissociative Identity Disorder”) are generally thought to arise from extreme psychological trauma, as a way to cope with severe abuse or loss.
Even without multiple personalities, Behavioral Optometrist Samuel Berne believes that any person who has a extreme nearsighteness as an adult, experienced physical or emotional abuse as a child. If that is true, it makes sense that less significant traumas might lead to glasses that are less strong.
Can You Improve Your Own Eyesight?
You may already believe that trauma, stress, or worry can cause stomach or neck and shoulder pain. Could it be that this principle extends to your eyes? Dr. Braun says, “We're finding the most graphic demonstrations to date of the power of the mind to affect the body. If the mind can do this in tearing down body tissue, I think it suggests the same potential for healing.''
Most eye doctors are doubtful that eyesight can improve, but a few of them know it is possible after getting out of glasses themselves. Or they have seen patients get out of glasses.
