Your Questions About Eye Exercises For Better Vision

February 29, 2012

Donald asks…

Is this eye exercise really beneficial?

And if so, what are it’s benefits ?

Many people tell me about an exercise where you focus your eyes on the tip point of a pen or a sharpened pencil at a distance, and then slowly bring it closer, till the vision gets blurry, and then holding it for as long as you can, and then gradually take the pen to the original distance, and repeat.

Is this really any good ?

Thank you so very much for your time and effort.

God bless.

admin answers:

Nope. There are no exercises that can maintain or improve eyesight.

Maria asks…

Blurring your vision on purpose – good, bad, or neither?

I have always been able to focus my vision closer without crossing my eyes, resulting in blurred vision for any object more than a foot or so away, although I can control just how blurry things get. This is a great trick for me because I don’t like the scary parts of movies and I don’t want to look goofy covering my eyes, but I want to know if this is safe to do on a regular basis. If it is using a muscle, (I guess the ciliary muscles) wouldn’t it be a good thing to exercise that muscle?

admin answers:

It’s not good to use the muscle if it’s going to make your vision blurry. It will get conditioned to stay blurry after awhile.

You won’t look goofy not looking at sary parts of movies. :-)

Your Questions About Eye Exercises For Lazy Eye

February 27, 2012

Richard asks…

I have a question about diabetes and eye problems?

my mother has diabetes and also the things that go along with diabetes such as high blood pressure, hyper tension all of those, and she really doesn’t exercise. She has had it for about 4 years now. Recently just out of nowhere, her eye muscles gave out and her left eye was becoming cross eyed. its like a lazy eye but it doesn’t move. when she sees, she sees as if she was cross eyed, she can see fine if she turns her head and she is looking sideways. her eye Doctor said that it might be because of her diabetes and it her eye will be healed in time. I was not able to find anything like that on he internet. so I decided to make a question online to see if anyone ever experienced that or know of someone who has experienced that while having diabetes. do you know what i’m talking about, can you help? thanks

admin answers:

You didn’t say if the doctor was your regular family MD or an ophthalmologist. Family MD’s are great but for something like this I would consult with an ophthalmologist who would know more about disease of the eyes. Also a second opinion is not a bad idea.

Linda asks…

What’s Wrong With My Right Eye?

Is it being lazy? Because everytime I look straight, it goes to the left. When people look they think I’m looking at the right. My left eye is very perfect. But not my right. What can I do to make it straight? Does eye exercise really work? How long does it take for the affects?

admin answers:

I already answered your question very similar to this one.

Your eye may or may not be a “lazy eye”, also called amblyopia. Do you have much worse vision in your right eye? If yes, then it is a lazy eye. If no, then your condition is not called amblyopia or lazy eye, but instead strabismus.

Here are good sites to explain the difference between strabismus and amblyopia:

Steven asks…

Why am i having problems in my right eye?

Some basic info:
- I am 15 years old, and a girl
- I usually have my hair covering my right eye (I have darkish hair [ginger with black bangs], if it has any relevence)
- I have blondish eyelashes and eyebrows, which dont block out the sun as well as darker ones.
- My eyes are blue (I heard lighter eyes are more prone to damage)

New things since this started:
- I started track for my school, two hours of strict exercise monday-friday.
- I got an ipod touch, and i use it a lot
- We got a new house, which is really dusty (I highly doubt that’s helpful, but ill throw it out just in case)
- On the second day of this, i was getting into the car, and i couldnt see the door, and the corner stabbed my bad eye. No blood, or headaches, just hurt for a few minutes and i woke up with a bruize

The Problem:
For the past four-six days, my right eyes vision has rapidly been getting worse. I have a large blindspot that changes from white to black, depending what my eye wants to block out (It blurrs the whiteboard at school out with a white blindspot, it will blur out stars with a black blindspot). Other than the blindspot, everything is blurry, and has a pinkish brownish tint. Ironically, a week before this started, i got a physical, my good eye is 20/20 and the other one was 20/25 (Which wasnt bothering me at that point).

My dad and biology teacher both checked my eye with a flashlight, it looks the exact same, and my eyes dialate the same.

My dad thinks its from staring at my ipod (Im not sure about that, cuz i used my DS the same way and as often, before i got the ipod touch.) Ive done some research, and it kinda seems like a burn in my retina (Solar Retinopathy) but i dont stare at the sun, i dont do drugs that make me wanna stare at the sun, or anything like that. My biology teacher (he is also my track coach) thinks its a retinal tear, but that primarily occurs in age 60+.

If i cover my bad eye, i see fine, but i dont want to get a lazy eye, and it gives me a small headache. If i cover my good eye, i can barely see anything, and if i use them both, the contrast of vision makes me slightly dizzy and i cant focus.

I want some opinions before i go to the doctor, cuz i dont wanna pay hundreds of dollars for something that can possibly be fixed with a home remedy.

BTW, sorry for any typos, im kinda in a rush

admin answers:

You portray yourself as intelligent for a 15 year old so it should go without saying that you just need to go to an optometrist and have your eyes checked by a professional who knows what to look for. Large spots can be indicative of many serious eyes issues. Your eye sight is not something you should screw around with. And your symptoms would seem to indicate something more than can be fixed with a home remedy.

Your Questions About Eye Exercises

February 26, 2012

David asks…

Any eye exercises to improve my vision?

I have a really poor eyesight and was wondering if there is any eye exercises to improve it?

admin answers:

Hello SuperMom Do U have I Dr. Low Vision therapist?

Mandy asks…

Can eye exercises restore my eyesight?

I have really bad eyesight
about -4
I want my eyesight back, do eye exercises make my eyes stronger and improve my sight?

admin answers:

No, they dont. No “eye exercise” can “restore” vision.


Lizzie asks…

Do eye exercises really help to improve eyesight?

Since the cause of loss of 20/20 vision is to do with lathargic eye muscles, wouldnt doing eye exercises make those muscles more active and inturn improve ur eyesight? But a few weeks ago i heard this eye doctor on the TV saying that eye exercises wont do anything but then ive heard alot of ppl online say that they have been doing eye exercises and it has really improved their eyesight, even given them 20/20 vision. sum1 plz tell me the truth…..

admin answers:

The cause of blurry vision is not “lethargic” or “lazy” eye muscles. The eye muscles only work on internal structures so they are many times stronger then they need to be. So the theory of exercising eye muscles is comletely wrong. Eye exercises(eye pushups, eye aerobics, eye yoga) are a terrible deception that help keep people from natural perfect eyesight.

When I was young I tried to hit a baseball for school games. I was very bad and I was strained and tense. A friend showed me how to swing at the ball and all of a sudden I was very relaxed, and swinging and hitting were greatly improved.

Vision is very similar. People with blurry vision have learned how to use their eyes incorrectly. In fact people with blurry vision exert a whole lot more effort and tension than people with natural perfect eyesight. Because artificial corrections don’t change the way we use our eyes, our vision gets worse year after year.

One of my primary goals is to educate people on the differece between completely incorrect eye exercises, relearning to see, and temporary harmful artificial corrections.

Your Questions About Eye Exercises For Myopia

February 25, 2012

David asks…

Self cured myopia?

Five months ago I’ve had such a bad myopia that I couldn’t see the TV. I did not go to an optologist though. After a month my vision became better I could see the TV clearly. Sometime after that everything in the living room got clear, I was very excited and happy but still when looking outside in the park the trees were blurry. About a month ago I started doing eye exercises and I focused a lot on the trees outside and other things in the park. After a week of doing the same routine I woke up and after not looking outside for an hour I thought about exercizing my eyes and like always took a look at the trees in the park and there was a big change! It was so much clearer, I could see the small branches and leaves. After three weeks my vision gets better and better everyday. On the other side of the park I stuck a yellow stick in the ground and focus on it, and I see changes in better vision. This is an amazing experience. The only problem is why does it worsen when it is darker outsid?
Then how do you explain this miracle that happened to me?!

admin answers:

Well that is pretty unusual, but it is IMPOSSIBLE to inprove your vision with eye exercises. However, sometimes, people’s vision just changes overtime. Your eyes could just be changing on their own.

William asks…

how can I see clearly without glasses?

I am 13 years old and I have been wearing glasses for quite some time, and my mum wont let me buy contacts (lol), and I’m obviously too young to do an operation…….so I was wondering if anyone could give my some tips on how to cure myopia either via: eye yoga, pills, eye exercises or…….anything, pls .

also, can anyone WHO HAS USED pinhole glasses, pls tell me if they work or not,

P.S. my glass lenses are +4.50 and +4.75 (just to let you know)

admin answers:

I am an ophthalmic technician and there really is not anything you can do to correct vision. Aides are aides for a reason. At the age of 13, your eye muscles are trained to act a certain way. Eye exercises and therapy really aren’t anything that can help, because the therapy and exercises correct the way an eye positions itself (ie, if it pulls to the right or left) but not the vision. Pinhole works, but it’s not practical because it eliminates your pheriphal (side vision) vision and considering that you are 13 and while you do have poor vision, there are many many cases that have worse vision than you at a younger age and there is not much you can do until you get old enough for contacts or laser correction. Your eyes can’t “get worse from sitting in front of a TV” or “reading in the dark” so they can’t get better by “training.” And by the way, you are not myopic if you have a + in front of your correction power. You are hyperopic, or farsighted. Myopic refers to nearsighted, or with a – in front of the correction power. Your eyes are part of the human body, so they react just like everything else, they act on their own, you just have to have the glasses/ surgery to correct the biological process.

Ruth asks…

The human eye and myopia?

The lens of the eye are connected to the ciliary body by connective tissue called the zonnules of zinn.
When the ciliary muscles contract then they curve the lens of the eye to focus on near objects where as when they expand or relax they flatten the lens to focus on far away objects.
I am 16 years old and wear spectacles of -4.00 diopters. I had myopia from grade 7 and didn’t get it checked out. At first it wasn’t major. I could see almost everything. I used to use the computer (I had a CRT monitor) and watched the T.V at close distances ( 10-15cm) for 6 to 7 hours. That’s where my eyes went bad. Now its only logical that by focusing at close distances for long hours the ciliary muscles in my eyes became too contracting. Now if I look at far away objects for long hours while occasionally looking at near objects, I will be exercising them to focus on far away objects. (I am willing to do this exercise for as long it takes to regain my eye sight back and I am also ready to maintain a good diet rich with vitamin and beta carotene etc. to improve my eyes because my ambition in life is to be a fighter I want nothing else. I am ready to give up anything for it. But I don’t want surgery because it is dangerous and has many side effects and I just can’t surmount enough money to go to a good doctor).
I really do think I might have Pseudo-Myopia

admin answers:

Yes.. That’s logical if your myopia is due to ‘cilliary body’ cramping/spasms… = PSEUDO MYOPIA.

However most myopia is NOT due to the cilliar body contracting.. But due the eye ball growing LONGER!!!… Or the CORNEA growing too curved.

You see.. In the case of the eyeball growing longer… The cilliary body doesn’t even contract at all, and the lens is as flat as it can be… Yet, its focus is still too short for the eye.. And so everything far away is blurry… Now the lens can’t get any flatter.. And the cilliary body can’t relax.. And so you get AXIAL MYOPIA.

Similary.. If the cornea’s (or lens) curvature is too steep.. Then, even with the lens and cilliary body relaxed.. The eye power is too high, and is focused up close… = REFRACTIVE MYOPIA.

Sorry.. But it’s most likely that your myopia is AXIAL.. And hence, only glasses/contacts/laser surgery (to flatten the cornea even more) is a corrective path for myopia.

Furthermore… Beta-carotene and vitamins help the retina convert light to electrical nerve impulses… And has nothing to do with the eyes focusing… So even if you inject carrot juice into your eye, you’ll still need glasses/CL’s or Laser surgery to treat myopia.

Lastly… All you want is to be a FIGHTER???.. As in a professional ‘sport’.. Like Boxing, Wrestling… Or that ‘rubbish’ that’s on TV now?… I wonder what ever have you been through to make you feel that all you want to do is dish out pain and suffering to a fellow human being… And ‘justifying’ it to yourself as a ‘sport’?

How about 1 month after 1 fight… You have a bleed in the brain and have a stroke… Become paralysed on your Right half of your body.. Can’t talk, can’t even swallow your own saliva, let alone any food… And seeing your crying parents, only when they’re sitting on your Left side (coz you’re completely R world blind)… As they spoon feed mush into your mouth?

Maybe you’ll be lucky, and you’ll become world champion… And after you collect your belt, you visit your oponent.. Who is in the exact condition that I described above.. Coz you’ve given him a brain injury that’s made him a paraplegic?
