Eyelights Eye Therapy


I told you a day or so ago about the glasses that my niece is using with her daughter... for eye therapy.  Her daughter's eye kind of wandered, and she could memorize verses, but not recognize a number when visually shown it.  Her brain needed to be retrained. My brother in law took a Seminar from a Dr. Michael Liebowitz, in which he learned about these glasses.

My niece has her daughter using them on each color 9X, 7 to 8 times a day. Then she moves on to the next color.  The order and priority of this process was determined by testing with Kinesiology. In just the several days that they have been using these glasses, her daughter has already started recognizing letters, numbers, and starting to learn her phonics blends.  They are all amazed!

There is a wire around the glasses, that can stimulate the different parts of the eye, and combined with different colored lenses, utilized WHILE doing a particular task, it retrains the eye, AND the Brain.

These are being used with our US Olympic Trainees, with great results.   Swimmers, runners, weightlifters, soccer players, baseball players, bike riders, and BULL RIDERS, have used Eyelights and have seen the results.

We have even created the worlds only underwater light stimulation device (currently being used by an Olympic swimmer).

Why does it make a difference?

As many sports physiologist know, all athletic performance begins with the brain.  If your brain is not functioning correctly, you cannot perform.  Look at the NFL players who have recently gotten concussions. Without their brain functioning at top performance, they are not able to compete.

The brain is the most important thing any athlete has.

Study Finds Two Minds in Every Brain
By William J. Cromie Gazette Staff

12 November 1998

Andy had been cruelly bullied as a child. In his teen years, he suffered from epileptic convulsions and underwent an operation that severed the thick band of nerves connecting the right and left halves of his brain. Recently, researchers tested the responses of both sides of his brain to memories of being taunted 30 years before.

The left side reported that it was not at all upset when he thought about it. His right brain, however, indicated that Andy (not his real name) remained extremely angry and bitter. The researchers tested a second so-called split-brain person and found the same kind of disagreement between the two halves, or hemispheres, of the brain.

"This study indicates that each hemisphere has its own mind; each is capable of different perceptions, motivations, and feelings," declares Fredric Schiffer, a psychiatrist at Harvard Medical School and its affiliate, McLean Hospital. "Each mind seems to differ in sensitivity to past trauma, level of maturity, attitudes, and emotions."

What is more, he says, this idea is consistent with evidence that people who never undergo split-brain surgery have two minds in their heads.

"It's not unlike the different relationships you find between a couple," according to Schiffer. "One side of the brain can dominate or sabotage the other, or they can cooperate. The relationship can be destructive or productive." Schiffer undertook the split-brain research to increase understanding of how an intact brain works and how unhealthy relationships between its minds can be successfully treated.

Mixed Opinions of Themselves

In the 1960s, surgeons commonly did split-brain operations to relieve intractable seizures caused by epilepsy. One patient used in the dual-mind experiment, for example, suffered a major seizure every week for a year preceding his surgery. Such operations are no longer done, so people who underwent them represent a rare source of knowledge about how the human brain works.

With the help of Eran Zaidel of the University of California at Los Angeles and Joseph Bogen of the University of Southern California, Schiffer located and tested two middle-aged male split-brain patients.

Whether a brain is split or intact, its left side controls the right hand and the right side the left hand. The two subjects sat in front of two sets of five pegs, one set in front of each hand. Researchers could ask a question of one side of the brain or the other, then check the response of the corresponding hand. By using a split screen in front of the pegs, they could even direct different questions to different sides of the brain at the same time. The experimenters arranged the pegs such that, from left to right, they signified "none," "mild," "moderate," "quite-a-bit," and "extremely." For example, the left brain of one patient, call him Larry, thinks of himself as more hopeless, lonely, sad, and unhappy than his right brain. His right hemisphere declares he is "quite-a-bit" friendly and important. But his left hemisphere gives him a "none" for both characteristics and it rates him as "quite-a-bit" evil and "extremely" disrespected.

Some epileptics with partial surgical separation of their brain halves were studied at Harvard by David Bear and Paul Fedio in 1977. These patients all had a left hemisphere with diminished self-esteem. Their right hemispheres, on the other hand, inflated their self-image, giving them a higher opinion of themselves than friends and relatives gave them. Schiffer says such findings are consistent with those found in ordinary people, that is, those whose brains are intact. He believes this independence of minds can play an important role in understanding and treating behavioral problems. If, as in Andy's case, one mind is less mature and more disturbed by past trauma than the other, that may lead to feelings of anxiety and depression, or to self-destructive behaviors such as drug addiction.

Glasses Change Emotions

Working at McLean Hospital in Belmont, Schiffer has developed a way to change troubled feelings with special eyeglasses. The glasses completely mask one eye and cover most of the other. To access the right brain, a person wears a pair with only the extreme left side of the left eye exposed, and vice versa. As an example, many people who suffer the lingering effects of past trauma feel more fearful if they look out the extreme right side (left brain). When they switch to viewing the extreme left side (right brain), they feel more in control immediately.

"Both minds remember the trauma, but one side is less distressed by it," Schiffer comments.

Schiffer tested 70 people with intact brains. Sixty percent of them experienced different emotions when looking at the world with different sides of the brain. Thirty percent reported a marked difference. "Some patients refer to the discrepancies as 'mind-boggling discrepancy,' " he says. "There may be a troubled mind in one hemisphere while the other one feels quite good," Schiffer continues. "In treatment, I try to teach people to recognize and talk to the troubled side. In time, that side can learn to be less anxious or fearful, to feel safe and valuable.

"This kind of result is much more effective than my telling a person: 'I like you; you're important, and you should not be fearful.' The experience stays with someone longer when he or she puts on the glasses and reaches his or her own conclusion about being a nice person, a valuable person."

Schiffer does not claim he can cure all emotional ills with weird-looking glasses. "They don't work for all people," he says. "And changing a troubled mind is hard to do even with their help."

Schiffer discusses the theory and practice of bringing two minds into harmony in his new book, Of Two Minds, published by the Free Press.
