Activate your brain’s potential for visual repair and improvement with this gentle program.
When uveitis struck David Webber’s eyes, he went to the doctor. That doctor led him to another doctor, and then another, and another. Five years and five surgeries later, the specialists gave up hope for a recovery, and David was left to rebuild his life with only a prescription for prednisone to help with the pain and inflammation. The disease robbed him, not only of his sight, but his livelihood, his friends, and, as he put it, “everything I knew of as who I was.”
Unable to do very much, David starting taking Feldenkrais lessons. Though at first, it was mostly to get out of the house, the decision started him down a path that would lead him to go from legally blind to 20/20 vision. What David discovered was how to improve his eyes by improving the movement of his body. From this, David created Seeing Clearly, a program designed to help others improve their eyesight, decrease the symptoms of uveitis, reduce the symptoms of computer vision syndrome, lessen their dependence on glasses, and reduce jaw tension. Taught all over the world, the results have been astounding.
Seeing Clearly interacts with your brain and nervous system to reduce muscular tension in your eyes, increase ocular circulation, improve movement and focus, and enhance the coordination between your eyes, brain, and body.
With this program, you will learn how to:
-Calm your nervous system and relax the muscles of your eyes to increase ocular circulation.
-Improve the way your eyes move to look comfortably in all directions and avoid unnecessary strain.
-Direct your eyes with greater precision to focus effectively both near and far.
-Enhance the coordination between your brain, eyes, and body to improve your 3D vision and balance.
-This program includes nine Awareness Through Movement® lessons, four action processes, and six discussions.
[You will need one juggling ball and one eye patch in order to experience the Action Processes in the Seeing Clearly program.]
David Webber (1954-2018) was a highly respected Feldenkrais® practitioner who made groundbreaking advances in our understanding of eye health. At the age of 43, after suffering an inflammatory illness, David lost his eyesight and was declared legally blind. When surgical interventions failed to help, he explored alternative avenues in search of healing solutions. His prior experience as a complex computer systems integrator led him to recognize the Feldenkrais Method’s unique potential; its ability to engage the brain’s neuroplasticity to restore function via learning. David began using Feldenkrais exercises to stimulate changes in his own nervous system, and to functionally restore his own visual system. It worked; David succeeded in significantly improving his eye health and vision. He went on to develop Seeing Clearly, a program to help others to improve their vision and eye health.
David’s story of healing was featured in the internationally bestselling book, The Brain’s Way of Healing: Remarkable Recoveries and Discoveries from the Frontiers of Neuroplasticity by Norman Doidge, MD., and also in a recent Canadian TV special. He presented his groundbreaking work at natural vision conferences around the world and is beloved in the Feldenkrais community.
What People Are Saying:
“David Webber…was blind from the age of forty-three until he cured himself using his own application of Dr. Feldenkrais’ understanding of the brain and mind. By accessing the remarkable, and natural ability of your brain to change, improve and heal itself you can relearn to improve virtually the whole visual system…”
-Norman Doidge, M.D.
“As an ophthalmologist, I combine traditional western medicine with complementary approaches. Seeing Clearly uses the inherent plasticity of the brain to stimulate new functional resources and integrate the eyes, neck, hands, and entire body. The resulting improvement in vision is both rapid and impressive!”
-Christine Dolezal, M.D.
“I learned of David Webber in Norman Doidge’s book ‘The Brain’s Way of Healing.’ I had already been legally blind from glaucoma for several years. Seeing Clearly has helped me to make the best and most efficient use of what vision I have left, and in a more general way, I now have an improved sense of spatial awareness and physical balance.”
