I recently started using the EFT audio program you recently promoted. I got through to week two (fear) and heaps of real fear started coming up in my life. About a month later I realised I had stopped the 8 week course completely and I had been so keen to do it at the beginning.
This morning I started the program again, including some near far swing, palming etc and I had the longest and most profound clarity ever. I could see everything so clearly! I could see flowers and birds…everything! It was so beautiful and overwhelming that I just cried and cried. I had both feelings of complete joy and awe and also sadness that this is what I have been missing. It lasted about half an hour of me just taking a step, walking home and seeing something new every step and breaking down crying everytime until I got home and told my house mate and cried and cried some more. My vision is not totally clear now and not as clear as this morning…but I am back on the journey of dscovering what these blockages or limiting beliefs are that are stopping me from seeing like that every day ALL DAY! Maybe without the crying…although the overwhelming beauty of everything and that feeling of being more connected because I could see everything in detail was just amazing.
Would love any feedback, advise etc. The EFT in conjunction with your natural vision improvement techniques is very powerful. I probably was doing it for 15 mins when this happened.
Thankyou for the clarity so far! What a great gift to give people!

I was just so excited after only three weeks working with your kit, I wanted to write now. I’m 55 years old and have been a high myope most of my life, and although I’ve made several breakthroughs and strides in the past working with natural vision techniques, including classes and work with a local instructor, as well as several books and tapes, all based on Bates’ methods, your Personal Eyesight Training Kit has quickly moved me off of my plateau, where I’ve been for several years.
I’m now seeing in 3D for the first time in probably 46 years (it feels so strange – like I have 3D glasses on or am looking at a child’s pop-up book!), and am seeing textures and patterns in my longtime environment I’ve never seen before.
My cats have been a great tool! When one of my cats is in my lap, and turns to look up at me, I can actually see her eyes (clearly) without my glasses. Although it may sound silly to some, it’s been a real revelation to me to see their fur in a completely different way. I can see the individual hairs of their fur (without glasses) and find that although I’ve seen the patterns of color of their fur as a whole, I can now see that not only are there hairs that are all black or all gold, etc., but there are black hairs with gold dots and gold hairs with vertical black stripes. I never saw that before.
I haven’t yet made any progress with the distance chart, but I’ve been able to move the reading card from seven inches all the way out to nine-and-a-half inches, which for me is a big deal. I thought the type I was reading before was clear, but now everything is so much sharper.
The only time I’m wearing prescription glasses at all now is at the office when I’m at the computer, and the glasses I’m wearing are ones from high school, 40 years ago. When I’m at the computer at home, I wear the pinhole glasses, which work fine.
I’m looking forward to submitting my next progress report!

I have just done my first vision test since I took off my glasses and I could not wait to tell my progress!
Before I start, just a quick background -
I read your book for the fist time in Mid April and took off my glasses for the first time in 32 years or so. (I have been wearing glasses since I was 3 with strong long sighted and astigmatism.)
I only read the book quickly once and got your Personal Eyesight Training Kit
I have been working consciously to be friends with the blur, to blink, relax, yawn a lot and relax my neck and shoulders and around my eyes, less TV and PC and stay outdoors and most importantly improving my emotional state.
Now, I still haven’t done much vision games etc but since I felt that my vision improved quite a bit that I did my eye test today and results are….

Just a note to thank you for the (Personal Eyesight Training) kit and to let you know that I am very impressed by the knowledge, time and consideration that has gone into the kit.
You have such a soothing and a beautiful way of explaining everything and encouraging us on our vision “quest”.
I shall contact you if i run into any difficulty understanding the material which i doubt very much.
Anyways i shall let you know my progress.
Have a blessed weekend..
Hello Carina, just thought of letting you know that just the deep breathing , yawning and the sunning has improved my vision slightly. oh, yes, also have been doing the self massaging. my eyes have gotten really dry , only became aware of this in a profound way once starting to yawn. very impressed. thank you. have a blessed day.

I am continuing with the vision improvement. I find I end up doing the same exercises namely a series of warm ups including cross crawl and some switch on touch for health things and then the near far swing. Sometimes i do the feather swing. I also am since May eating raw food and having lots of green smoothies and feel extremely well with lots of energy. I am slowly seeing a change in my eyesight. I have just started going through Carol Look’s EFT vision improvement before I do your exercises. I have started them before but they didn’t alone make a huge difference. I believe I am in a different place emotionally so the onion layers are getting peeled and clear vision is emerging. Thanks for your programme – I love listening to you leading the exercises. I find your voice soothing and grounded and gentle!

“The PET programme CLEARLY explains in detail how perfect eyesight can be achieved by working holistically with one’s health. Carina explains that it is AS important for the individual to release suppressed emotions, as it is to have a healthy nutritious diet, do regular physical exercise PLUS do regular eye activities.
Having Kylie (the PET myopia student) involved in this programme as well, is very beneficial, as the listener can often identify with myopia and relate to what she is saying.
This is an incredibly well put together programme with huge insight into the characteristics that make up the myopic personality.”
Carina does not include anything that is not helpful to the recovery of your eye sight. I am a medical oncologist and Carina seems to also have a very deep understanding on the emotional factors that play a role in disease including eyesight and she explains how to look at this as well. In addition to all of this, Carina is gracious enough to answer questions to people who bought the book and who want assistance with the subject matter. Buy this book, you will not be disappointed.

Thankyou so much for your phone call last week. It has certainly given me inspiration to continue on my vision improvement journey, but also for the first time made me realise that all the queries and uncertainty I bombarded you with were really yet another way I was letting stress and fear and worry block my path to improvement. Thanks also for making me realise how far I’ve already come.
Below are some of the things we spoke about, which I am happy for you to use as testimonials. I’ve been very wordy (got a bit excited) so please feel free to edit as you wish.
I know you asked me to put in writing the improvements I told you I have already experienced, but yesterday I had a whopper piece of concrete evidence. I received my new $50 internet t-glasses from China, with both good news and bad. Bad news is, they are giving me pretty much 100% acuity on my wall chart when I was aiming for around 80%. The good news is they are -7.50 in both eyes and I was -8.50 and -8.75 when I started out a couple of months ago! So I am devastated I’ll have to save them for only very needy vision occasions and order another pair, but doing a major happy dance because they are concrete proof of my improvement!
As background I will mention that only a few short months ago I was a 16 hour a day contact lens wearer of 23 years, whose body was beginning to reject contact lenses with everyday dryness and burning and increasingly frequent bouts of ulcerated cornea (no surprises there!) I have known for years I had ‘faulty tear ducts’ according to my optometrist and opthalmolagist consultations but it’s taken that long for the penny to drop to bring the holistic approach I have to every other part of my well-being to my vision.
Since purchasing your kit I cannot believe how much more aware I have become of my daily vision comfort levels. I still don the contacts for my weekly stand-up paddle session but only for an hour or two and can’t wait to get out of them, or for those social occasions where I just can’t bear to turn up in glasses, and am reminded almost immediately of the effects on my eye health with headaches and burning eyes.
I now spend most of my days in either no glasses (but I am a very high myope so this is limiting) or my other t-glasses which are -6.00. These challenge me but are now ok for all but driving and cleaning LOL. (Husband commented on mould in shower stall and crumbs on floor which I was happily oblivious to!)
I have gone from having no visualisation with eyes closed to imagining clear scenes or images during my visualisation games. I also find it easier and easier to incorporate vision activities into everyday situations, and am so much more aware of my frozen stare habit, which means I am able to mostly keep my eyes free and moving naturally. I also rejoice in the feeling of having no glasses. I am definitely able to relax into my blur and love the breeze on my bare eyeballs and the glorious colours everywhere. For so long I kept my gaze down in glasses and never even went a couple of metres with naked eyes, living in fear of my blur.
Thanks again for a wonderful tool, and for continuing your mum’s incredible work. I know my journey will be a long one but with your support and amazing knowledge I am hopeful I can get there. I can’t guarantee I won’t be calling on you again for a motivation top up or advice with my myope tendancies to over-think and over-research (and worry worry worry about doing it all properly), but I can tell you so far so good.

I contacted you previously and have since gotten your kit for myopia. I’m reluctant to say I love it but I do! I’m taking it slowly, working onthe breath, massage, and cross crawl for about 3 weeks now.
As a myope, I love how you break down the info into sections because otherwise I would try to do it all at once. Yes, the format of your program is really good for me. I think especially as a myope, taking things slowly and one step at a time is so key and the PET kit is that at least as far as I’ve gone. I still don’t feel comfortable w/ the magic nose pencil although at times I’m getting this sense of my head moving and my eyes resting in the sockets while at the same time being totally active but somehow apart from “me”. Its as if I’m allowing my eyes to do their own thing.
It is very relaxing and gentle.
I really love the Personal Eyesight Kit and want to commend you on it’s creation. It is friendly, very informative, easy to follow and I love the interaction between you and Kylie. I also love the way you guide me on what to do with music. I have been doing it for about a month or so now. I already notice some improvement in my myopic eyes. Relearning to breathe, yawn, relax and blink are slowly creeping more and more into my everyday life. Your kit is compact and as I said I love it. Thank you so much for all you care and attention to detail and clear explanations in creating it!!!!
I’m up to learning the nose pencil drawing properly, and it is fun!
I really appreciate the amount of time, thought and care you have taken in producing the kit which being a perfectionist myope I really like and find very thorough.
Your relaxed, grounded presence is very inspiring to me.
I have been wanting to write to let you know that your new book has given me a lot of useful ideas for the integration of good vision principles in my daily life. I really enjoyed the book, which I find the most clear and succinct explanation of the Bates method I’ve read to date. Carina’s book is even more practical than the also great ones by Janet Goodrich. The reason is that tables are included with specific activities for every vision disturbance, including a timeframe for practicing each one. This is something I haven’t found in any other book about natural vision improvement. Despite personal criticisms of the Bates method, I find that if someone’s interested in finding out more about it, Carina’s book (and also Janet’s, especially the book on children’s vision) offers a much more clear outlook of the method than the book by Bates himself. This book will show you how to incorporate good visual habits seamlessly to your daily life.
Your passion for improving vision is very obvious in your audios and book. It is inspiring to me and helps to keep me going in what otherwise might be simply an overwhelming endeavor. It’s like I have a friend who has a personal interest in my well-being and vision and we get together everytime I listen to one of the audio lessons. I have to say it is quite different from other vision improvement courses and techniques I have tried to utilize over the past years. I never was able to sustain them for over a couple of months or so – it just didn’t seem to matter. Your program is different because you have developed a support system for your students that works, at least speaking for myself! And it works even though I’m halfway around the world. Thank you.
I am 71 years of age next month and thanks to this Method still do not wear reading glasses.
I am a lawyer and still in practice. My work involves long hours of reading and drafting documents emails etc I have been practicing the Janet Goodrich Method for quite a number of years.
Many of my clients express amazement that I read documents etc in conferences and without glasses. I tell them about the JGM.
Keep up your great work.
I recently purchased your mother’s book entitled “How to improve
your child’s eyesight naturally” and found it very helpful.
In July 2008, my daughter was diagnosed with lazy eye with a
prescription of +3.25, +4.25 in both eyes. I worked on the vision games in Janet Goodrich’s books for three weeks and
noticed a significant difference in my daughter’s eyes.
I then went to another Dr. for a second opinion and my daughter had
20/20 vision in both eyes. I wanted to thank you with all my heart and if your mom was living, I would be so
grateful to her too.
Nevertheless, I must say I was already convinced before I listened to
it, because I bought your mother’s book last May (the French
translation) along with William Bates’ one. I have been practising
relentlessly since then, and my vision has already considerably improved
: from -4/-3.25 in May, I can now drive with -1.5/-2 transition glasses,
but I use them very seldom, because the first thing I did was to take my
glasses off. I almost never wear them. I am a bit frustrated when I play
tennis because sometimes the ball disappears (on a clear background, for
example), but I suppose this is only a minor inconvenience. I can cycle
around, go to the cinema or to the theatre without glasses, it’s
All the best to you and this fantastic method,
the light was very yellow and dim, and I complained that I couldn’t see
well enough to play in a satisfactory manner. I told the girl I was
playing with “This is an example of the discouragement I sometimes feel
in this process of vision amelioration”. But she answered me (she wears
-6 contact lenses) :
“you shouldn’t be discouraged, it’s already
incredible that you manage to play at such a level whithout glasses”,
and I felt better… I think it exemplifies how paramount the positive
thinking is for natural vision improvement.
You may remember me – I met you out at Crystal Waters a wee while back and you recommended reading your Mum’s book – to help give up my short sighted glasses. which has worked beautifully. I haven’t worn them for about 4 mths. Thank you!
Lately, I have started to feel progress. At first it took me a long time to actually get to the bottom of it. My prescription is: Right -2.25 and left eye -1.5. In 2007 my eyes measured Right -1.75 and left eye -1.00. I had at the time been wearing the type of contact lenses, which you wear at night – the ones that actually corrects your vision and gives a day of “normal” vision. The progress of this inspired me to start training again.
The holistic approach of your training has helped me a great deal. Breathing, blinking, relaxing are all essential steps fundaments for any lasting progress. From my background as an actor I can clearly subscribe to this fact and I have struggled with this for a long time and still am working with this.
I also found the emotional healing part in lesson 6 to be extremely helpful. The last bits in the puzzle are basically gradually filling in now. At least this is where I am now.
I am slowly becoming familiar with the different eye games and if I succeeded I would greatly like to share this with others here. For the moment and I have to say still, I put great emphasis on self-massage, cross-crawl (I also found kayaking to be a potential great cross crawl game), near-far swing. I am still doing white glow, tromboning and patching with some efforts, but have found the nuclear vision game to be very exciting. I took this from the book. It says in the teleclass that you have a down-loadable version, which is available once one has filled out the feed-back form. How do I go about filling out the form and would it be possible to download/buy the nuclear vision game?
Again thanks for a great course and happy vision.
I’ve made quite a few friends in the past two days. Unfortunately I didn’t have enough time to exchange contact details. Would it be alright if you gave me Cassandra’s, Ann’s and Dessy’s email address? That would be great.
I’ll be practising those vision games and be sure to let you know about my progress.
Thanks for running the workshop on the weekend, I’m glad I attended and it was well worth the money.
business first… did you get my money for the pack in your account?
and now for the big news….
today monday 21st july 2008 i took off my glasses and didn’t use them all day.. i drove my car and went to the movies and drove home in the dark of night…
i have done a bit of work on myself a few years ago along the lines of what you taught me at this weekend’s seminar on natural vision health… and in the past i had had a few amazing glimpses of clarity of vision that i could only describe as spectacular…
today 90% of the time i have been seeing at better than 20 20 vision (my estimation) the spectacular moments of clarity i had previously experienced are now with me almost full time…
i have noticed a feeling of complete calm come over me when i’m in this state of perfect vision… i know now what you were telling us when you said that our eyes are so much more that just seeing objects…
some examples of my vision… i read the numbers on post office boxes (aprox 10mm) from about 30 feet: i saw the screws on the number plate of a passing vehicle and the scratches on the screw heads: things like this are not normal to me and i would think that they will only get more as i practice your techniques…
you are an amazing being, i love what you have done for me and i will tell heaps of my friends…
i am living what you taught me and have already got a feeling about my very expensive glasses… they feel old and useless….
i have to keep this email short and i promise to keep you up to date with my progress… and of course i can’t wait to send you my next script…
lots of love to you princess….
see you in the light

I just couldnt wait to tell somebody what happened to me yesterday. I have been procrastinating about visiting the optometrist to get my eyes checked for some T glasses so I can legally drive at night. I made an appointment with a guy named John Palassis, who was recommended by Joy Glengarry. ( Joy completed the NVI course with Janet some 12 years ago). So along I go to the appointment and he does his thing. We talk about the holistic stuff around eyes and he surprised me by saying that he had in the past attended workshops by Jacob Leiberman and Roberto Kaplan. He has also previously arranged workshops for optometrists only, with Leiberman which have been a great success. His view is that both Kaplan and Leiberman have set themselves apart from the opto-profession whereas he sees it is more sensible to change it from within. Great stuff ..and then he asks me if I rememebr my last prescription, which of course I do, being the one I got just before coming to Qld. I tell him I was given -6.25 in each eye and he laughs saying that if I was to wear that prescription glasses it would suck my eyes out. I no longer have my most recently prescribed glasses, but still have the previous pair from about 8 years ago I gave them to him to check the prescription at that time and they were for -4.5. Anyway he is giving me some night time driving glasses at -3.5!! So I am sure that I have reduced my RE by AT LEAST 1.25 diopters since I started NVI !!!! Thanks NVI Girls ps I cant wait to tell my practise students as they are curious about what I have acheived.
