Thomas asks…

How can I improve my eye sight naturally?

I am far sighted. I hate wearing glasses and I also hate wearing contacts and I don’t want to get surgery. How can I improve my vision naturally?

admin answers:

You can eat 30 pounds of carrots a day and it will never make a difference in your vision. That’s just a silly myth.

No vitamins or foods or exercises will improve your vision. None of those things will change the shape of your eyes.

Sorry, but you have to do like millions of others and wear glasses or contacts, or get laser surgery done.

Laura asks…

How can I improve my vision?

Because I am really vain about having to use glasses, and my mom won’t even consider getting me contact lenses. If I had to rate my vision, i’d probably rate it 7 of 8 out of 10. I notice that sometimes I have to squint to see things in class, and that black letters on the whiteboard sometimes look gray and blurry to me. What are some habits I could have to improve my visionNATURALLY?

admin answers:

A lot of times in class you go from looking at your notebook while taking notes to the board and your eyes take a while to focus.
To help with your focusing try looking at things far away and close up and alternating them. Look at something, like your computer screen or a book, and then something else farther away in the room. Wait for your eyes to focus on then what you are looking at then switch. Do this alternating between close and far things for about 5 minutes a day.

Can-C Eye Drops Can Improve Your Vision

A lot of people are suffering from different kinds of eye problems today. This can vary from mild to serious cases. With the various factors that cause eye concerns, lots of eye specialists have been finding ways or solutions to take care of, or at least prevent, these particular eye symptoms that may bring about eye conditions. One of the most frequent eye conditions that lots of people are experiencing these days is cataracts.

Cataracts are actually the clouding of the eye’s lens. It is a prevalent issue for older individuals. In fact, more than fifty percent of the individuals aged 80 and over have cataracts. It’s a progressively developing affliction and wearing glasses in the very first stages can help. Untreated cataracts can easily bring about extremely impaired vision. In the worst cases, surgery could be the sole option. At present, there’s a brand new innovation in medicine that treats cataracts without the need of surgery.

Can-C eye drops provide the safe elimination of cataracts without having the requirement of surgery, therefore making it possible for the person to have their natural lenses in place of getting artificial lenses added through surgery. Dr. Mark Barbizhayey was the important individual driving this ultimate breakthrough at Innovative Vision Products (IVP).

Tests carried out by IVP revealed that cataracts are formed when there is a reduced level of antioxidants. This is largely why older individuals are far more prone to cataracts since antioxidant levels drop as we get older. It has in addition been found that the eyes significantly depend on the antioxidant present in Can-C Eye Drops, which is an active ingredient of Can-C. Scientific studies have demonstrated a significant success rate among individuals who have used this particular eye drop for 3 to 6 months. Most remarkable is that there were no significant side effects reported throughout the tests carried out.

The great thing about Can-C eye drops is the fact that not only do they offer a non-surgical method of getting rid of cataracts, but they in addition take care of glycation and free radicals. The active ingredient in this eye drop, N-acetylcarnosine, works as both an anti-glycator, keeping glycation from taking place, and as a formidable antioxidant, clearing away free radicals to help prevent them from causing harm.

For those men and women who aren’t comfortable with surgery, potent but gentle Can-C eye drops might be the innovative solution that you have been searching for. Keep in mind to routinely go to your eye doctor to prevent future eye damage. Carry out your own research if you’re still reluctant to utilize this product. You can research on the internet, join internet eye forums, read through up-to-date books and magazines, or just pay a visit to your local eye doctor and ask for assistance. In the event you are at present using prescription medications, it’s sensible to talk to your eye doctor prior to using this product to avoid problems.

Your Questions About Eye Exercises For Lazy Eye

Charles asks…

how do i make my lazy eye have the same vision as my other eye?

should i do eye exercises while covering my good eye and looking through my lazy eye or will that make my good eye even worse ? uh… do u think that i should just cover my good eye for t he whole weekend and use my lazy eye? do u think this will help make my vision better? im trying to make my vision super good so that i won’t have to wear glasses no more

-thanks :D

admin answers:

Occlusion therapy is generally beneficial for improvement of site and encouraging a reduction of suppression of the amblyopia. However, one weekend won’t make any difference, this takes time.. Much time to see results.

It also is highly dependent on the degree at which your ‘bad’ eye is suppressed. You will need to see your eye doctor to have both eyes measured and a determination at the best course of ‘therapy’ to attempt to restore vision in the eye being suppressed by the brain.

Sometimes an eye patch worn several hours a day is the Rx. Sometimes on weekends only, sometimes everyday for most of the day for X months.

Sometimes eye drops to blur the good eye are used to allow for one to not be embarassed about wearing an eye patch. Although the drops work by relaxing the cilliary muscles thus causing blurring vision and shifting the visual input to your “lazy” eye, so to speak.

The degree, and possibility of treatment has to be determined after thorough examination. It really is no big deal.

A Pediatric optometrist who specializes in ‘therapy’ of sorts is usually the best choice for therapy.

Also, you *can* help suppression even after you are an adult. Though you are probably still a child, which plays in your favor developmentally and for speed.

Good luck,

Sandra asks…

Is it easy for eye muscle surgery to fix intermittent exotropia (lazy eye/strabismus)?

My doctor says eye exercises won’t work at my age and that surgery is the best route for me. If it makes any difference, I have normal 20/20 vision in both eyes. One eye will drift out when looking at near objects and when focusing on objects in the distance.
I wanted to add that will send me a message who has had the same thing as me, I would love that so much. :o )

admin answers:

It can and can’t work. It really depends on how your muscles respond. I have had 3 surgeries to correct this, at first i had 20/20 but i’ve developed terrible sight. I’m not convinced it was because of the surgeries or anything but if you have perfect sight and the lazy eye doesn’t bother you to much then i wouldn’t do it because it’s not worth the risk of affecting your sight. You don’t realize how good you have it until you can’t see.. But esthetically i realize that it helps tons so if your doing it for that sole reason then i would go ahead and do it if you really want to. Hope everything works out.

Donna asks…

After a lazy eye surgery is it normal for the eye to still be a little inward?

If so how long will it take for the eye to become straight. I had the surgery 2 days ago and am worried. And also is it good to give the eyes exercise. Such as using them normally and not weaning them or easing them off the light.

admin answers:

Yes normal. Could get straighter later…BUT the #1 problem with strabismus surgery IMO is that it is *rarely* perfect. It can make an eye thats turned A LOT into an eye that turns a *little*…but its pretty rare IMO to completely eliminate the turn & make that eye totally straight. VERY RARE.

Shouldnt matter if you “exercise” it or not.

Eight Exercises to Improve Eyesight

Eight Exercises to Improve Eyesight

Article by Ted Brumby









Many bemoan the fact that as we age our eyesight becomes poorer, but few relate this to the simple truth the eye is supported by muscles just like any other part of the body. If you do not keep them in shape they will become weaker; the muscles will lose their tone and become rigid, causing decreased elasticity in the eye which can lead to sight loss. Exercising your eyes regularly will keep them healthy and relieve eyestrain.

The increase in computer-related jobs and free time spent online has also added to many eye problems, which can be greatly aided by keeping your eyes refreshed and exercised. Eye exercises are physical therapy not just for the eye, but also the brain, due to the optic nerve which connects them both. Relieving eye tension will also ease up on your brain strain, in turn, relaxing your entire body.

The ciliary muscles of the eye tense up when we focus on nearby objects, and relax when we focus further away. Below are some exercises you can practice to not only keep your eyes healthy as you grow older, but may also improve poor vision for those already relying upon contacts or eyeglasses.

1. Sit in a chair, posture erect, spine straight, body relaxed. Keeping your body motionless while moving only your eyes, find a point you can focus on in front of you without straining and move your eyes from your lap, to this point, and back again. Repeat five times.

2. Close your eyes, placing your hands tightly over each eye so that no light gets in. The heels of your palms should rest upon your cheekbones. Breathe deeply. This relieves eye tension and strain and is very relaxing. Practice for three to five minutes.

3. Move eyes slowly upwards as far as you can, then downwards. Repeat five times. Blink rapidly to relax the eye muscles. Repeat this exercise, only now moving your eyes slowly from left to right and back again.

4. Gently squeeze eyes shut for three seconds, then open them and repeat five times. This is an excellent exercise to relieve computer strain on the eyes by stimulating the tear ducts.

5. Hold an object in front of you at arm’s length, waving it slowly back and forth in a figure eight while following it with your eyes. Do this for approximately 10-15 seconds. This helps stimulate the nutrient flow within the eye while improving eye coordination.

6. This exercise helps strengthen the iris and is best done at night, in front of a bright lamp. With no other lights on in the room, sit in a comfortable position facing the lamp with your eyes closed, switching the lamp on and off in time to your slow, relaxed breathing.

7. Focus on a small object at arm’s length, such as a pencil, inhale, then move it slowly in to touch the tip of your nose. Exhale, keeping your eyes on the pencil and move it slowly back out again. Repeat three times.

8. This is a fabulous method to relieve eye tension for those working in offices with access to windows. Focus on a distant object outside for eight seconds then slowly refocus your eyes on an object close at hand. Repeat three times, and often during the day, at least once per hour.
