NATURAL VISION IMPROVEMENT
FOR CHILDREN AND ADULTS
“Yoga for the Eyes”
Pat Mattas, Certified Natural Vision Coach and Teacher
If you were to meet me, you would soon discover that I speak from my heart. I am honest and straightforward – it’s how I roll. In short, I don’t engage in hyperbole and exaggeration. So, when I tell you that Natural Vision Improvement (NVI) changed my life – you can believe it!
In 2014, I began dabbling in Natural Vision practices; however, it was without the aid of a Natural Vision teacher. I made a few gains on my own, but I wasn’t satisfied. It felt as if some very important piece was missing.
Throughout my life, I have tended to “turn a blind eye” to the things that I couldn’t bear to see or deal with. In fact, my contracted vision of life prevented me from fully understanding my circumstances in various areas of living. It wasn’t until I embraced the need to see clearly with my eyes that I found the guts to face my GIANT – the need to see life clearly with my “mindful” eyes. I would never have achieved this without the guidance of a knowledgeable NVI teacher who had traveled this Natural Vision road before me. After working with a Certified Natural Vision teacher for a few months, I discovered the “missing piece” – the gift of expanded awareness and clarity of perception. My world literally and figuratively opened up!
As a Certified Natural Vision Coach and Teacher, I would like to do the same for you. I would like to show you the way to clearer sight as well as expanded vision. Life is beautiful when looked at with an openness that comes from using our physical eyes and mindful eyes in a natural and relaxed manner. I “see it” as a gift.

WHAT IS NATURAL VISION IMPROVEMENT?
As the name implies, Natural Vision Improvement (NVI) is a “natural way” of relearning to see. It does not involve glasses, contact lenses, eye surgeries, medications, or arduous eye exercises. Natural Vision Improvement is based on the proven principles of Dr. William H. Bates, an ophthalmologist and eye surgeon who discovered these groundbreaking truths in the early 20th century. The benefits of NVI are best achieved by working with a Natural Vision teacher/coach.
WHAT IS THE BATES METHOD OF NATURAL VISION IMPROVEMENT?
Dr. Bates concluded that eye stress/strain is the root cause of eye dis-ease. Through his work with thousands of patients, Dr. Bates developed methods to eliminate eye stress/strain. Bates contended that natural vision is effortless. On the other hand, straining to see creates visual disturbances. Thanks to the Bates Method of Natural Vision Improvement, many people have recovered their eyesight and have been able to throw away their glasses.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS?
Result times vary from person-to-person. Most often, people will see encouraging signs of improvement within a few sessions. Some individuals have had spontaneous and permanent recovery of natural vision at the first session. This is less common, however. The journey is different for each person, but rest assured, the eyes are eager and delighted to embrace the “new” relaxation – and they will respond with clearer sight as you continue to learn and grow
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A NATURAL VISION COACHING SESSION?
Coaching sessions are unique to each client. I customize my coaching sessions to be responsive to the needs, personality, and desires of each client – young and old. Overall, we will explore the natural habits of breathing, blinking, movement, and centralization – to name a few. We will have fun exploring and customizing a myriad of visual activities and games which are very effective in releasing stress/strain. There will be opportunity to go deeper into the mind/brain/emotion/vision connection which supports the expansion of one’s life view. Let’s just say – the sky is the limit!
CAN CHILDREN BENEFIT FROM NATURAL VISION IMPROVEMENT?
Yes! Children offer some of the greatest testimonials to the successes of Natural Vision Improvement. Unfortunately, our 21st-century culture is exacting a heavy toll on our children. The stressors in children’s lives come in the form of overly busy lives, lack of playtime, lack of creativity, sedentary existences, unhealthful use of technology, poor nutrition, peer pressure, academic pressure, uncertainty of the future, family discord, divorce, sickness, etc. Children, typically, cannot express the turmoil that resides within them; however, when presented with the opportunity to release this stress/strain via Natural Vision Improvement, they are eager participants.
