Lesson 16

"Hyper-sighted" eyes is a new term. It is a suitable term for "Hyper-opia," misnamed "far-sighted" eyes. Hyper-sighted eyes have too much curvature. Hyper-sighted eyes do not have enough curvature. The focus in near-sighted eyes is too short. The focus in hyper-isghted eyes is too long. It is too long because hyper-sighted eyes are deficient in curvature. More than 80 per cent of all persons have hyper-sighted eyes.

Hyper-sighted eyes, when fully relaxed or flattened, are unable to see distant objects clearly without the assistance from the bending apparatus inside the eyes. A person with hyper-sighted eyes of 1.00d. has to bend his eyes 1.00d. in order to see distant objects clearly. At 40 inches, he has to bend his eyes 2.00d. At 40 inches, he has to bend his eyes 1.00d. more than a person with neutral eyes. This bending is done automatically and unknowingly by the person.

A person with hyper-sighted eyes of 2.00d. has to bend his eyes 2.00d. for distant seeing and 3.00d. more for reading at 13 inches. He has to bend his eyes 5.00d. which is 2.00d. more than a person with neutral eyes would have to bend. It should be readily understood that hyper-sighted eyes are not suitable for prolonged near-seeing. At far-far distances, hyper-sighted eyes, if not spoiled, can see better than neutral, normal or perfect eyes. They are better for star-gazing.

Hyper-sighted eyes of as much as 4.00d. or even 5.00d., if not spoiled by prolonged near-seeing or otherwise, can see both far and near as well or nearly as well as neutral eyes, but more often they give us visible and hidden trouble. They are visible when they affect our eyes in a visible way. They are hidden when they undermine our eyes and our health without notice, without clue and without a trace -- no medical examination can reveal it.

There are many variations of hyper-sighted eyes. Most of hyper-sighted eyes can see both far and near. Many, especially older persons, can see far but not near. A good many have poor vision and cannot see well, either far or near. Many hyper-sighted eyes, especially in children and young persons, act like near-sighted eyes. They see well near but not far. Hyper-sighted eyes are all deficient in curvature. They all can be benefitted by hyper-sighted glasses which are plus spherical glasses.

It is well to divide hyper-sighted eyes into two separate classes and give each a separate name. Class 1: Hyper-sighted eyes which have 20/20 vision or better. A suitable term is "Hyper-far-sighted" eyes. Class 2: Hyper-sighted eyes which have less than 20/20 vision -- a suitable term is "Hyper-eyes."
