Peter Grunwald wore glasses for myopia and astigmatism from age three. His overall use and eyesight deteriorated and his glasses became stronger year by year (-10 ½ diopters). He qualified (1987) in Sydney and 1985-90 worked annually with Marjory Barstow. After encountering the Bates Method of vision improvement, he trained in Germany with vision instructor Janet Goodrich. After habitually wearing glasses for 27 years, it took only eighteen months to be totally free of them.

At that time, Peter discovered that within the visual system resides an entire map of the human body and that the eyes themselves link to corresponding structures in the brain that govern the body, the emotions, and the ability to think and reason.

Peter's work applies the AT principles to the process of seeing. New editions of Eyebody - the Art of Integrating Eye, Brain and Body in both German and English have recently been published. He lives in New Zealand.
