In brief: Not possible

It has been a long term goal of people to have perfect sight without eyeglasses.
Bates postulated a link between external eye movements and internal focusing ability - but this does not exist. The two ways to rid yourself of eyeglasses: (1) contact lenses (2) laser refractive surgery. Don't waste time and money on bates or other ineffective schemes.
