About the Author

Thomas R. Quackenbush is a West Coast vision educator who, in Relearning to See, gave readers the most thorough and technical description of the Bates Method of natural vision improvement currently in existence. He showed how relearning correct vision habits and skills ("sketch, breathe, and blink") could loosen the rigidity of head, eye, and neck muscles that results in blur.
