Your Questions About Naturally Improve Eyesight Without Glasses

Ken asks…

What are some ways that you can improve your eyesight?

I’ve worn glasses for 5 yrs now and I’ve always wondered, what are some ways that I can improve my eye vision entirely?

admin answers:

Most people can perfect their eyesight naturally without the crutches of artificial corrections(glasses, contacts, surgery) In order to do this we need to unlearn the incorrect vision habits, reintegrate the correct vision behaviors, and undo the damage of artificial corrections and blur.

Avoid anything that talks about eye exercises(eye pushups, eye aerobics, eye yoga). Eye exercises have nothing to do with natural perfect eyesight and can sometimes make things worse.

A good place to start is to read the best books. I have a link to one on my website. Most people have a lot more succes with the support of a local teacher. I also have a link to several of them aroun the world on my website. I’d be glad to interview on you are interested in to make sure they are teaching correct principles.

Donna asks…

Can bad eye sight be improved by eating carrots ?

I really want to see clearly without wearing glasses or contacts. Can I improve vision by eating carrots ?

admin answers:

There is some evidence that suggests eating carrots may help maintain current vision capabilities, there is no solid proof that eating carrots will improve eyesight. Carrots are high in beta-carotene (a pro-vitamin) which converts into Vitamin A. In terms of eyesight, Vitamin A plays an important role in maintaining healthy vision. When the body is deprived of Vitamin A there are risks of vision impairment.

But here are some ways that can help you to improve your vision naturally. The development of vision disorders such as myopia, presbyopia, glaucoma, astigmatism, crossed-eye, lazy eye, cataracts, macular degeneration can be stopped or eliminated through natural healing methods.

So what ways can you improve your bad eyesight? There are several methods that you can start training your vision and some of those are:

1. Sunning and palming
2. Resting and relaxing after long hours doing close work
3. Having enough sleep
4. Looking at far away objects after reading, writing or staring at computer’s monitor
5. Reducing causes of mental stress
6. Blinks more often
7. Eat a lot of fruits and vegetable
8. Consume fish oil and food supplement for the eye more often
9. Relaxing and closing your eyes and imagining places you love to be around
10. Performing eye yoga exercises

Incorporate the above steps into your daily life to avoid or to eliminate vision problems. The techniques above can promote the health of your eyes and you can see the improvement within weeks. Some people have found remarkable vision improvement in just two weeks.

Mandy asks…

What happens if I stop wearing my glasses?

I was thinking that I could heal my eyes naturally some way. I just hate being dependent on my glasses.I wear them all of the time, at work, at home etc….My friend is supposed to wear glasses too but she stopped and says she is trying to see without them.

Any thoughts? I am 25.

admin answers:

Your eyesight will just get worse just get laser eye surgery but if that’s to expensive for you just where conracs like me plus you can sleep with them for a whole week but after that you should take them out a d clean them plus glasses can make vision worse cause they always get thicker contacts can actually help improve your vision trust me my vision is a lot better now that I use contacs

Thomas asks…

Car seat facing backwards?

I know that you are supposed to keep the seat backwards until they are atleast a year old, but why exactly is it safer? If you get hit from behind can’t it be more dangerous? Just curious.

admin answers:

Here is what I found. Good question…you got me searching lol! I will also leave the address below in the resource section so if you’d like to read into this further you can read the whole thing. There was more information on the site…

Why Rear-Facing is Safest

A common question asked by parents is, “How soon can I turn my child to face forward?” The universally accepted response is to keep your child rear facing to AT LEAST one year of age AND 20 pounds in weight. In fact, it is preferable to keep your child rear-facing as long as possible, and that may mean up to 30 or 35 pounds for most convertible car seats. The American Academy of Pediatrics and other Child Passenger Safety organizations endorse this philosophy.

Summary:

Rear-facing is safest for both adults and children, but especially for babies, who would face a greater risk of spinal cord injury in a front-facing carseat during a frontal crash.

Rear-facing car seats spread frontal crash forces over the whole area of a baby’s back, head and neck; they also prevent the head from snapping relative to the body in a frontal crash.

Rear-facing carseats may not be quite as effective in a rear end crash, but severe frontal and frontal offset crashes are far more frequent and far more severe than severe rear end crashes.

Rear-facing carseats are NOT a safety risk just because a baby’s legs are bent at the knees or because they can touch/kick the vehicle seat.

Rear-facing as long as possible is the recommendation of the American Academy of Pediatricians, and can reduce injuries and deaths. Motor Vehicle Crashes are the #1 overall cause of death for children 14 and under.

Reasons:

Even with best practice, not all injuries can be prevented. Some crashes are unsurvivable. Still, much of best practice is based on statistics, and how to have the best chance to reduce injuries. Best practice may also be based on crash forces and physics. Both are very important regarding the use of rear facing seats.

A few factors govern the physics of crashes as they relate to children in carseats. Obviously, the faster the vehicles are going, the more energy will be in the crash. Similarly, heavier vehicles will also have more energy. Perhaps most important is the length of time passengers have to “ride-down” a crash. The longer the “ride-down”, the more time your skeleton and organs have to absorb the crash energy. Longer time means less power is transferred to your body, and less chance of injury.

Statistics. According to Crashtest.Com, frontal and frontal offset crashes combine for about 72% of severe crashes. Side impacts are about 24%. Rear and rear offset crashes only account for about 4%. The NHTSA FARS database shows similar numbers. The odds of being in a frontal crash with a fatality or very serious injury are many times greater than being in a severe rear-end crash. Rear-enders are more common at lower speeds, though most injuries in these crashes are not as severe; typically whiplash injuries to adults, especially passengers lacking proper head restraint.

Crash Energy. Vehicle speed is very important to the energy in a crash, even more important than their weight. Frontal and frontal offset crashes are the most severe because they often happen with both vehicles traveling at high speeds in opposite directions.

Rear and rear offset crashes, on the other hand, often happen at lower speeds. In many cases, one vehicle is stopped or nearly stopped, and the other hits it from behind at a relatively low speed. Other times both vehicles are traveling in the same direction at similar speeds when one is bumped from behind. Either way, the difference in the speed of the vehicles is usually much lower in rear end crashes, and so the energy in the crash will also be much lower. Lower energy means less chance of injury.

Mark asks…

When to turn car seat to forward facing?

Help, I went to my daughters 18 month visit today and when discussing use of car seat he told me that if at all possible I should keep my daughter in the rear facing position although she is 27 pounds and I had always thought you could turn them around at 1 year and 20 pounds. He said that there have been a shitload(he didn’t use that exact word) of studies done supporting the rear facing position in the back seat of vehicles. I was concerned about her feet being to long and hitting the back of the seat, worried that this could cause her to have a leg injury if we had a accident and supposedly he said that there have been no reported incidents of this happening due to rear facing seats. He also said the my almost 3 year old should face rearways if her car seat is suitable for her weight in the rear facing position, I don’t know about putting her that way although my seat for her is a SunshineKids that goes to 45 pounds in the rear facing. I don’t know what I should do, I really like having them both facing so I can see them better but want to do whats safest too.

admin answers:

Your doctor is 100% correct.

It sounds AWFUL to word it like this, but broken legs (and it’s true, no documented cases have been made) can be fixed but a broken neck, caused by facing forward too soon can lead to paralysis or even death.

Http://www.rearfacing.co.uk/facts.php

Sweden have been practising RF for over 40 years, and the child fatalities in car crashes has decrased DRAMATICALLY since they recommended keeping children RF until age 4.

“From 1992 through June 1997, only 9 children properly restrained rear-facing died in motor vehicle crashes in Sweden, and all of these involved catastrophic crashes with severe intrusion and few other survivors”

Can you believe that? In FIVE years only NINE children died. That’s incredible. ALL because they were RF.

Http://www.carseat.se/rearfacing/rear-facing-basics/

“In a forward facing seat, a child’s shoulders and body are held back by the harness. But neck and head area are thrown violently forward putting tremendous force on the yet undeveloped head, neck and spine. For a rear facing child a collision is relatively undramatic with the whole back of child absorbing the impact forces. Head and neck and pressed back into the seat and remain well protected.

Collisions at minor speeds may cause catastrophic injuries, like in the case of Joel. Joel was 18 months old and 33 lbs. When he collided in his forward facing seat at relatively low speed. He was forward facing because his parents believed it was safe. Joel broke his neck and spend many months in the hospital. The great news are that Joel is making a nice recovery and that his grandfather James has turned into a huge rear facing advocate helping us to challenge authorities worldwide to change recommendations and educate parents better about rear facing”

http://www.carseat.se/rearfacing/safety-benefits/

“I really like having them both facing so I can see them better but want to do whats safest too”

Keep them RF.

Your Questions About Naturally Improve Eyesight Without Glasses

Ruth asks…

Is there a way to naturally strengthen your eyes?

I have really bad eyes and I do wear my contacts/glasses 24/7 but I was wanting to strengthen them for the air force.

admin answers:

Yes there is a way to do it no matter how many people say otherwise.

1. Glasses act as a cast. When you break your leg, you get a cast to help it heal and then you get off it and let your leg recover on its own. Glasses should work the same way. Wear it for about 2 months and get off it. My friend did this unintentionally and his eyesight fully recovered.
2. Never wear contact lenses, the direct contact with your eyes is very bad for their health.
3. THE BEST WAY TO IMPROVE EYESIGHT is with the snellen chart. This is that chart that doctors make you read when examining your vision. There is a method to stretching your eyes and focusing on the chart without strain to improve eyesight. Here is a free website: http://www.seeingwithoutglasses.net/swg/Eye-Sight-Chart/Eye-Sight-Chart.php
This site is long, but detailed in info. Look up improving your vision using a snellen chart on the internet.
4. The girl above me also has a good answer.

Daniel asks…

Is it possible to have crossed eyes when you become nearsighted?

or even worse, can’t even read letter until you’re about 1 inch away, without any glasses or contacts. My eye vision is horrible right now, and I think this is the cause of my eyes becoming crossed. When I take a pic without my glasses, it clearly shows my eyes concentrated toward the center, while wearing contact relieves the magnitude of having crossed eyes, but still has some signs of it.
I used to look at the computer screen for a long time without a break constantly, everyday. Could this have contributed to my eyes positions becoming weird?

admin answers:

Crossed eyes are a problem with the eye muscles. There are exercises you can do that can help strengthen the muscles. You can find hem in several books.

Michael asks…

What techniques can i use (exercises) to improve my vision and to stop using glasses?

I have read that there are these exercises that you do to improve your vision without LASIK, contacts or glasses. ANybody know where i can find these techniques???
I read about it, its calles “natural eye correction” but i cant find the exercises anywhere. Help ?

admin answers:

There is. I’ve experienced vision improvement firsthand. My vision used to be L: 3/20 R: 4/20 but now I have an average vision of L: 7/20 R: 10/20, after only a month.

Go to http://www.iblindness.org/ and learn about the Bates Method. Also important: read and/or post at the forums at http://www.iblindness.org/forum/

There are many things you can do to help your vision, but they are not the same as the misleading commercialized ‘eye exercise packages’ out there. I strongly recommend starting with this book called “Relearning to See” which you can get at Amazon.com through this link: http://www.amazon.com/Relearning-See-Improve-Eyesight-Naturally/dp/1556433417/sr=8-1/qid=1171080842/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/103-8926485-6989404?ie=UTF8&s=books

Out of the 24 reviews on this book, each single review has received 5/5 stars.

P.S. Do not listen to the naysayers posting here. They have only seen one side of the coin, not both. They have not experienced a paradigm shift in understanding how western society has been affected by misinformation on some levels.

I tried convincing my cousin about the need to separate the mind from the body. Vision is largely a mental process. For many years, psychologists have tried to emphasize that thoughts and emotions are capable of causing MOST diseases of the body to manifest in a physical sense. There is a strong bias in the medical community that makes it favor attack-the-symptom, drug-based medicine. Since the method I’m referring to involves quite a bit of psychology, it may be dismissed by some out of hand. [Western medical] “Doctors” do not deal with psychology. Now, what if vision problems are actually a disease caused by the mind? (I have overwhelming evidence that can support this)

It may not make sense to you until you read more about it, so I strongly suggest you read up about it. There has been very clear evidence revealed in the British Medical Journal of how western scientists have distorted things, giving people the mistaken impression the scientists, including optometrists, are on top of everything–but they aren’t… Citation: http://www.bmj.com/cgi/eletters/326/7404/1407 (go down to where it says “The fallacy of an assumption of simplicity” and you have one of the most convincing articles ever presented on the problems regarding the western mindset. This is a cultural thing…)

I tried to convince my cousin of this, but his inability to “see outside the box” posed a serious problem. You may be familiar with paradigm shift of how a single image can be interpreted two different ways: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Duck-Rabbit_illusion.jpg — this is an example of a paradigm shift viewpoint. A person may only be able to see the duck in that picture, while another person can see both the duck and the rabbit. I can see both the “duck and rabbit”, metaphorically speaking, but my cousin can’t, and neither can many people, including doctors and ODs. They are still prone to assumptions that everything they’ve taught has been sufficiently backed up. May be true in many cases, but for the optometrists, there is a serious problem.

I commented as I showed a few people what had gone wrong when I tried convincing my cousin: “It’s too bad he thinks our scientists and optometrists are smart enough to find out whatever has gone wrong, although I gave him direct evidence indicating otherwise (Helmholtz’s Theory of Accommodation reference at Wikipedia, for example). This should’ve been a “hint” to him that scientists aren’t always one step ahead on everything. One detail overlooked, especially if it has to do with something right at the optometry foundation, and just about anything is suspect to potential flaws. It seems that Helmholtz’s Theory was treated the way a cold case would be in a criminal investigation, closed from further investigation due to “limited manpower” and resources and interest. Then no one but Bates checked into it. It’s amazing how some people are unable to think outside the limits they have imposed on themselves..” Citation: http://www.iblindness.org/forum/index.php/topic,389.0.html

That is why things like improving vision are easily dismissed out-of-hand by many people- including doctors. But it does make sense from a true scientific perspective. Ex. The brain flips the retina’s image (which is upside down) the right way down shortly after we are born. We also have optical illusions, that are attributed to the mind. For eye doctors to address the eye as a physical-only organism is based on many misconceptions… You need to read more if you wish to understand how this has happened to society. Dismissing this possibility out-of-hand would be based on assumptions. A person needs to read closely both sides and understand what’s going on before making a judgment.

Many people don’t understand that there are different ways of seeing things, and that certain things make sense only if you take for granted certain underlying premises, which people don’t always see alternatives to.

Anyway, I suggest you check out the sites I provided. Especially the first two. There are a lot of misconceptions about eye exercises out there, and what other people may offer you may give temporary results but not permanent results. What part of your body do you move more than any other? Your eyes. Why would you need to exercise them any more? They’re fatigued and causing strain in the mind… This is opposite of what many ‘eye exercises’ products out there say, and what I’m showing you has a history to it and is based on the discovery of a very brilliant, well-respected scientist that got ostracized as soon as he made a nearly 180 degree turn after 25 years as an optometrist. He discovered there was a very bad, inconclusive mistake at the foundation of optometry understanding of how the eye works. Don’t assume that modern advancements have addressed the real problem, there are many unexplainable (or explained away) ideas about what causes diseases of the eye.

Ken asks…

how can i reword this?

my daughter is driving while texting i have found these notes on the internet but i to make it so she understand im gonna have to reword this on i need help

Texting on a cell phone is even more dangerous than talking. A study by Virginia Tech found that texting while driving on the highway increases the risk of having an accident twenty-three times. On average, a text message distracts a driver for about five seconds, which on a highway means about one-hundred yards. Off the highway, the University of Utah found that texting increases the risk eight times.
56% of teenagers admit to talking on their cell phones behind the wheel, while 13% admit to texting while driving. (Note: Because this information was given voluntarily by teens, actual cell phone use numbers may be much higher.) 48% of young Americans from 12-17 say they’ve been in a car while the driver was texting. 52% of 16- and 17-year-old teen drivers confess to making and answering cell phone calls on the road. 34% admit to text messaging while driving. In 2007, driver distractions, such as using a cell phone or text messaging, contributed to nearly 1,000 crashes involving 16- and 17-year-old drivers. Over 60% of American teens admit to risky driving, and nearly half of those that admit to risky driving also admit to text messaging behind the wheel. Each year, 21% of fatal car crashes involving teenagers between the ages of 16 and 19 were the result of cell phone usage. This result has been expected to grow as much as 4% every year. Almost 50% of all drivers between the ages of 18 and 24 are texting while driving. Over one-third of all young drivers, ages 24 and under, are texting on the road. Teens say that texting is their number one driver distraction.

‘Texting’ while driving is the act of composing, sending, or reading text messages, email, or making other similar use of the internet on a mobile device while operating a motor vehicle, such as an automobile, truck, or train. The practice has been viewed by many people and authorities as dangerous. It has also been ruled as the cause of some motor vehicle accidents, and in some places has been outlawed or restricted people have to stop.

Texting while driving leads to increased distraction behind the wheel. In 2006, Liberty Mutual Insurance Group conducted a survey with more than 900 teens from over 26 high schools nationwide. The results showed that 37% of students found texting to be “very” or “extremely” distracting. A study by the AAA discovered that 46% of teens admitted to being distracted behind the wheel due to texting. One example of distraction behind the wheel is the 2008 Chatsworth train collision which killed 25 passengers. The subsequent investigation revealed that the engineer had sent 45 text messages while operating the train.

A 2009 experiment with Car and Driver magazine editor Eddie Alterman that took place at a deserted air strip showed that texting while driving had a greater impact on safety than driving drunk. While legally drunk, Alterman’s stopping distance from 70 mph increased by 4 feet; by contrast, reading an e-mail added 36 feet, and sending a text added 70 feet.[1]

In the UK in 2009 Gwent Police worked with film maker Peter Watkins-Hughes and production company Zipline Creative to create the graphic short film “Cow”, as part of a campaign to stop texting while driving.[2] The film earned honors in the Advertising Age’s weekly Creativity Top 5 videos [3] and became an overnight worldwide internet hit after being shown on the American news program The Today Show.[4]

On August 29, 2007, Danny Oates was killed by a young driver of a car, allegedly texting while driving. The defense had argued that driver Jeffrey Woods had possibly suffered a seizure during the time of the accident. [10]
On January 3, 2008, Heather Leigh Hurd was killed by a truck driver who allegedly was texting while driving. Her father Russell Hurd has been actively supporting a law in various U.S. states called Heather’s Law that would prohibit texting while driving. [11]
The 2008 Chatsworth train collision, which killed 25 people, and which occurred on September 12, 2008, was blamed on the operator sending text messages while operating the train.[12]
In 2009, a crash on the MBTA Green Line of the Boston area was blamed on a driver who was texting. This occurred nearly a year after the Newton, Massachusetts rail accident, which occurred on May 28, 2008, and was blamed on the operator using a cell phone while operating the train.
A day after talk show queen Oprah Winfrey focused on the dangers of texting while driving, two members of the Georgia House of Representatives introduced bills that would ban the practice.

“Don’t tempt fate,” said Rep. Amos Amerson (R-Dahlonega), quoting Winfrey. “That text or call can wait.”

Amerson and Rep. Allen Peake (R-Bibb County) introduced similar bills that will likely me

admin answers:

Ok, your daughter drives and texts. Obviously she is able to comprehend at least something, but you have to “re-word” this? Maybe if you should have to do that you should take the phone away from her. Or better yet, let her keep the phone, and take away her car keys. No offense, I am not trying to sound smart about it, but gees. This is pretty cut and dry. What do you have to do re-word it for a 2 year old? Maybe draw some pictures to go with the article and have her color them?

Your Questions About Naturally Improve Eyesight Without Glasses

February 20, 2013

Michael asks…

How can I have better eyesight without wearing glasses or contacts ?

I’ve always wanted to see clear without wearing my eye glasses or contact lenses. Eye surgery is not my option. Can anyone recommend me a natural method to improve my vision ?

admin answers:

Artificial corrections(glasses, contacts, surgery) are all alternatives to our natural perfect eyesight. We are all supposed to have natural perfect eyesight and most of us can return to it. Most eye exercises(eye push-ups, eye drills, eye yoga) have nothing to do with returning to clarity. Eye exercises do not strengthen eye muscles and eye muscles do not need to be strengthened for clarity. Eye exercises can increase circulation which is good, but without an understanding of blurry vision habits and clear vision behaviors, they can often lead to effort, strain, and diffusion.

Artificial corrections give us instant clarity, but do not address the real issues of blurry vision, so our vision usually gets worse year after year. There are great professionals that are very good at giving very accurate prescriptions for blur and at helping you when you get disease. These professionals protect us from the scams of most eye exercises and eye potions but they also deny that we can have clear vision naturally without their system.

The best way to start relearning to see is to read from the best books. The best way to return to natural perfect eyesight is with the help of a great teacher. If a program doesn’t offer or lead you to a great Natural Eyesight Improvement teacher or at least some kind of direct support, they are not going to be very successful and are more likely depending upon you not taking the effort to get your money back.

Ken asks…

What vitamins and minerals to take for good eyesight?

I’ve been wearing glasses for five years already. Are there helpful vitamins and minerals to take to improve my eyesight?

Thanks….

admin answers:

The eye is the most important organ for seeing the world that surrounds us. It is used in everything we do from reading a book and watching television to admiring the beauty of a flower or a loved one.

Eyesight is a very precious sense, so it’s understandable that many people fear sudden loss or gradual loss of vision. Can you imagine losing your eyesight? The thought alone is a horrible one. As we approach old age it’s a thought that leaves an impression on our minds more and more.

The fact is, nobody is guaranteed perfect vision forever, but saying that there are things you can do to protect your eyesight and keep your eyes healthy. One of them is to do eye exercises, but in this article we’ll be looking at foods and vitamins to improve eyesight.

To ensure your eyesight is in optimum condition you need to consume these foods and vitamins.

Vitamin A – Vitamin A also known as retinol, occurs naturally in animals. This Vitamin keeps the skin healthy and helps produce mucous secretions to build resistance to infection. If you don’t consume enough vitamin A you can end up with a condition known as Nyctalopia (Night Blindness). Night blindness is the inability to of the eye to adapt to dim light, sufferers can see in the day, but have trouble seeing in the dark or faint light.

People who don’t consume enough Vitamin A may also go on to develop a condition called Xerophthalmia (Greek for dry eyes). This condition makes the surface of the eye become dry and likely to develop infection.

Vitamin A – Vitamin A can be found in plants with carotenes, the body converts these into Vitamin A. Carotenes can be found in carrots, cabbage and lettuce. Vitamin A can also be found in green and yellow vegetables, butter, eggs, fish liver oils, liver, milk and sweet potatoes.

Another good Vitamin to improve eyesight is a Vitamin called B2

Vitamin B2 – Vitamin B2. Vitamin B2 is also known as Riboflavin. It is needed for growth and for healthy skin and eyes. Vitamin B2 can be found in the following foods. Green vegetables, poultry, fish, liver, cheese and milk.

The last of the Vitamins to improve eyesight will be looking is called Niacin

Niacin – Niacin is also known as nicotinic acid. This Vitamin is essential for for growth and for health tissues. Without Niacin, Riboflavin cannot function properly so in that respect it is quite essential. Niacin can be found in liver, yeast, lean meat, whole-grain and enriched breads and cereals.

As you can see, consuming foods and vitamins to improve your eyesight is not difficult. The vitamins a re found in common foods and sometimes you can get all of these vitamins from one single food i.e. Liver appears in all the lists for the 3 different vitamins.

Maria asks…

Can eyesight improve with natural methods?

I practically cannot do anything without my eye glasses or contacts. I’m tired of wearing them and eye surgery is not my option. Is it possible to improve my vision with natural methods ? Can you suggest which techniques I should follow ?

admin answers:

You might trust your doctor to restore your vision by undergoing eye surgery. But with natural methods you may also have the same result by following directions that you can perform at home or your work place without spending much money. And of course there is absolutely at no risk.

All you have to do is learning and applying the correct techniques to achieve your perfect vision :

1. Limit the use of eye glasses or contact lenses

Most people with eyesight problems wear eye glasses or contact lenses to have full vision hoping that they can have their perfect vision back some day. Well, sadly that is not the fact. Eye glasses can make your eyesight worse if you depend on them. Do wear them only if it is necessary like driving your car, reading words or texts from a long distance, or reading books for those who suffer long-sightedness,

If you are serious in your intention to restore eyesight naturally, then the best choice is to do a lot of eye exercises and have regular breaks after doing long period of ‘close work’ like working on the computer, reading, writing or sewing.

2. Eat a lot of healthy food

An essential part of eye care is eating the right foods that contain the right vitamins to help keep the eyes health. But, with so many new supplements on the market claiming to enhance and improve vision, it can be downright confusing choosing which one is right for you. Choose the most important nutrient and vitamins for the eyes to preserve the health of you eyes such as: vitamin A, Lutein, bilberry and vitamin A

3. Sunshine

Sunlight gives energy and improves the eyes health in many ways. Its warmth can make eye muscles flexible and let tension and stress go away. Eye muscles stress can lead to many vision deterioration. This is how to restore eyesight naturally with sunning exercise. First, stand or sit down on a shade in a sunny area. Relax and close your eyes, do not stare directly to the sun. Make sure you do this exercise early in the morning. Let the sunlight touch your eyelids then move your face from side to side for a few minutes.

4. Do eye exercises regularly

This is the key to restore eyesight naturally. Good eye exercises relax your eye muscles and at the same time can strengthen them.

Follow this simple exercise and do it on daily basis. Start with focusing to near object then to far object. Repeat this process 4-5 times. Then blink your eyes several times. This technique is meant to keep your eyes muscles flexible and allowing them to learn to see at close as well as long distant objects.

More and more people are learning how to restore eyesight naturally everyday because improving vision naturally is possible.
