The Placebo Effect: Can It Improve Your Vision?
Belief is powerful medicine.

The "placebo effect" is a remarkable phenomenon in which a placebo (a fake treatment, an inactive substance like sugar, distilled water, or saline solution) can sometimes improve a patient's condition, simply because the person has the expectation that it will be helpful.

Dr. Robert Abel shares his personal experiences and documented scientific proof behind the placebo effect. 

The Wizard of Eyes reviews several examples in general medicine and calls attention to how it relates to eyes and altering your vision.

Magic and science can truly coexist with a little positive thinking.
