admin answers:

I am an ophthalmic nurse and there are no magic pills, exercises or food you can eat that will improve your eye sight. Your vision is based on two things, the shape of your cornea, which is on the outside and the shape of your lens which is on the inside. The light enters your eye and casts in what you see. The only thing that will change the way the light enters is to where glasses/contacts or to reshape your cornea via LASIK surgery.

How can I improve my vision naturally?

I’m fourteen years old and my dream ever since I was 4 was to go to the Air Force Academy and be a fighter pilot for the Air Force. I’m smart and athletic, so I have those qualifications to go to the Air Force Academy and fly, but my vision is not up to par. I have 20/200 on my left eye and around 20/35 on my right, give or take a few points. I am aware you need 20/20 or better so I would need a lot of improvement in my left eye. If you know of any exercises I can do, books I can read, foods I can eat or anything else I would greatly appreciate it. Also I am looking into the book “Relearning to See: Improve Your EyesightNaturally!” by Thomas R. Quakenbush. The book is on the Bates method. Thank you for your answers.

admin answers:

I dont’ know the book by Quakenbush so I can’t comment on it, but I’ve many doubts about the Bates method. The man was born 150 years ago so you can’t expect much from his method. Bates actually thought that almost every vision problem originated from the brain (your emotions, your feelings). That’s too much for me, because I prefer a much more pragmatic approach. That’s why I was entirely convinced by the book by De Angelis “The secret of perfect vision”. The title is horrible and I’m sure the publisher forced it upon the author . The content is actually extremely realistic and promises no miracles It contains tons of explanations regarding eye physiology and the causes of nearsightedness. The exercises are described in detail but they occupy just a small part of the book, because it’s useless to do them if we don’t avoid those bad habits which caused our nearsightedness.
So far I’ve reduced my prescription by more than a half and I’m quite happy.
Remember that these things require time and patience, otherwise it’s useless to try them.
Since there’s a big difference between your eyes, you should do the focusing exercise with the weaker eye only until they are on same level (use a patch to cover the other). The stretching exercises instead must be done with both eyes at the same time.

Paul asks…

Do corrective lenses damage your vision, and can vision be naturally improved?

I’m 13 and recently failed a school vision test with 20/40 in my right eye and 20/32 in my left. A year ago I was prescribed contacts but I never wore them, and I remember the optician saying that if you didn’t wear your contacts/glasses your eyesight would worsen. I’ve also heard on the internet that corrective lenses only temporarily correct your eyesight but worsen it overall in the long run. I wouldn’t want this to happen, since eyesight changes a lot in the teenage years.

My other question is if it’s possible for one’s vision to be naturally improved. I’ve heard something about eye exercises, but I wouldn’t know if it was a scam to get people to buy whatever products. Are there any other ways, if possible, to improve your eyesight permanently? A lot of Vitamin A, maybe, and more rest?

~thank you.

admin answers:

Whether you wear your glasses/contacts or not it will have little or no effect on how bad your vision ultimately becomes as you mature. Usually your vision will stabilize in your early 20′s. When you wear glasses/contacts, it does NOT “cure” your eyes, they just compensate for the problem, as soon as you remove them, your vision is back to whatever is was before.

If you look on the internet, you will find special eye vitamins, eye exercises, instructions for strange rituals, rejuvinating eye drops, special diets, etc all claiming to improve vision. There is no scientific evidence any of these schemes actually work. If you want to try them, it will probably cause no harm, but I wouldn’t expect much improvement either. As for vitamin A, there is no need to stuff yourself with carrots, if you are getting anything even approximating a balanced diet, you are already getting enough vitamin A.

Your Questions About Improve Vision Naturally

Daniel asks…

how to improve eyesight naturally?

hey, im around 15-16 years old now and i want to be a rescue swimmer. I think my chances are better with 20-20 vision… last time i was at the doctors i had 20-10… now i think im a level below that if not farther. is their any techenique to improve my vision…? thanks,

admin answers:

There’s really not much a person can do to improve their eye sight once it’s been damaged. If there were, you wouldn’t see so many people with contacts and glasses. You can still be a rescue swimmer — you just need to make sure that if you have contacts, you don’t wear them while in the water. Also, your vision isn’t too bad, so everything won’t be a complete blur once you get in the water, and you should still be able to do your job well.

Mandy asks…

How can you recover vision NATURALLY?

Does anyone know how you can recover vision naturally? I am a 13 year old boy and I CAN’T get surgery. I’m too young, the surgery is too expensive, and it’s not permanent and could cause side effects. Right now my vision is 300/350 and I really want to improve it. I can’t go anywhere without my glasses! Does anyone know how? Please tell me if you know!
I don’t really know the exact acuity of my vision or how it’s measured. Sorry if I confused you. All I know is that everything is harder to see from the distance and I can’t recognize letters or numbers clearly unless they are right in front of my face. If I am using the computer I can’t recognize the letters unless I am about a foot away or closer to the screen.

Jenny asks…

Can you correct your vision without surgery?

I have to wear contact lenses (or glasses) in order to see clearly, and I really wish I didn’t have to. I have -2.25 vision in my left eye and -2.75 in my right, and I’m only 14 years old. I’ve been wearing glasses or contacts (I have both) since the 5th grade, and I want to correct my vision before I turn 18, and this isn’t possible with surgery because I’m too young and because it’s expensive as shit. I’ve read in a few places that by getting a lot of certain vitamins and taking good care of your eyes can eventually improve your vision, naturally. Is this true? If it is, can it completely correct your vision or just slightly improve it? If it can completely correct your vision, how long does it take?

admin answers:

The so called easy ways of correcting vision like glasses and contacts can sure end up being a hassle. Glasses are always finding a way to get dirty, and contacts are a pain. They dry out on your eye and aren’t very sanitary, not to mention if you lose one it’s basically impossible to find it. But there is a different way to correct your vision. And no it’s not surgery. LASIK surgery is not the way to go. It is way too expensive and can have very bad consequences. The best way is simply made up of two different methods. And by following these methods you will correct your vision forever. No more trips to the optometrist and no more buying prescription eye glasses and contacts.

The first method is all about sleep. You have to allow your eyes to rest. Without rest you’re putting a big strain on your eyes. And in return only makes your eyesight worse. You will need to have around seven to eight hours of good steady sleep each night. That’s about the normal amount to fully rest your eyes from a day’s work. And as your eyes rest they very slowly start to correct themselves. Your eyelids massage your eyes as they are closed and massaging will help correct your vision.

Now the second method is all about learning how to work your eyes to their full potential. And you will do this by performing certain exercises on each eye every day. These exercises include blinking really fast then closing your eyes tight. As you keep doing this you will be allowing more circulation around your eyes which is critical for vision. So by following these simple methods you will be on your way to naturally correcting your vision in no time.

You’re not restricted to having to wear prescription eyewear or paying for LASIK eye surgery to improve your vision. There is a natural way to improve your eyesight within a few weeks. If you are tired of having to worry about glasses or contact lenses and you’re worried about the risks of surgery, there is an effective, natural way to get better vision.

If you’re tired of the cost of your glasses or contacts and you just want to have the freedom that better vision affords you, it can be done naturally. You can see better just a few weeks from now. People just like you have improved their vision through the use of eye exercises. It’s your turn now to see better.
