Where must I focus my eyes on the book? I usually focus my eyes just above the book and I can see the blip (at least I think it is). Should I see through the book in the middle of the page OR keep my eyes slightly above and take in both pages. When I photoread - I feel like each page is being "read" with one eye - and down the middle there's a haze - a line...

Please give me some feedback on this...

I started out looking just above the book also. I'm now to the point where I can look close to the middle of the book. I'm not sure how much difference it makes, as long as you can get both pages in your peripheral vision. Looking at the center, I get more of a sense of the letters "coming at me."

Where I have trouble is if there is text on only one of the pages...

Yup. Over time you will more easily be able to move your gaze through the center of the book.

If you feel you are taking it all in with one eye, it is because that eye is dominant. That's okay--you can still get a good PhotoRead. Eventually you should find balance.
