I'm a believer. When I was little, perhaps 8 or 9 years old, I started having vision problems, but I stumbled upon a muscle around my eyeballs that I could contract and my vision would go back to 20/20. I had never read *anything* about eye exercises at that point, incidentally.
Everyone else in my family, three sisters, brother, grandparents, father, mother -- they *all* wore glasses and had shitty vision without them, but I kept my 20/20 until recently; now it's getting worse again. Still, eye exercises, even just the ones I stumbled upon myself, kept my vision clear for an extra 35 years. I'll probably get glasses this next year. I think there are simply limits to how much correction exercises can provide, especially once you're in your 40s or older.
But the exercises *do* work, at least for many people. My significant other expressed disbelief when I told her I had self-corrected my vision as a child with exercises, so that's when I got on the web to see if anyone else had ever had that experience too, and stumbled across this stuff and showed it to her. I don't think she *wanted* to believe, because she's been wearing glasses herself for 40 years or so, but now she does.
