How can i improve my vision!?

Is there any way i can improve my vision w/o using glasses or surgery or contact lenses? or any ways that arent expensive?

If you have vision problems, your eyes muscles aren’t able to flex or relax enough for you to focus on objects.

Once you start having serious vision problems, I don’t think it is possible to improve your vision by eating carrots (carrots provide beta-carotene, which is a chemical molecule, and it doesn’t improve eye focus problems).

You could prevent your eyes from getting worse, though, by making sure you don’t strain your eyes. Unfortunately, there aren’t any cheap and easy methods for improving your vision.

Richard asks…

How can I “cure” my myopia?

I’m near sighted, in other terms I have myopia.
My vision is 18/20 or -2 if you’re european.
I don’t want to get contact lenses because they’re uncomfortable and I hate to open my eye lid to place the contact lens on my eye. Any special foods, drinks or maybe even exercies to somehow improve my vision naturally and safely please? No harsh comments, I’m serious and I’ve been wearing glasses for some time now and I hate them.
Also, what is the minimum age or Lasik?
In case of anything, I’m a male, 16.

Betty asks…

Fixing Nearsightedness naturaly?

Im a senior in high school and ever since10th grade my eye sight has went downhill. Every year until then i had 20/20 vision. I went to the eye doctor about a year ago and got a pair of glasses. I have been reading some things on the internet about fixing your eyes naturally and have a few questions about it.

Is there anyone that has tried it and can vouch for it actually working. If so, what is the best one to get. Also is there anything i can do myself without these products that can improve it.

Any help on this would be great.
Thanks in advance

admin answers:

Matt, I’m myopic (nearsighted) and I am also a board certified optician. Do you think that if there was anything out there that would correct vision naturally, I would have tried it? The fact is, there is nothing out there that will improve your visual acuity permanently other than Lasik surgery. If there was, everyone would be doing it. The closest we can come is wearing hard contacts which reshape your cornea overnight, then, during the next day, your eyesight is improved but as the day wears on, your cornea will go back to it’s regular shape and your visual acuity will decline.

Anything else is just bunk.

Save your money.

Laura asks…

how can astimatigtism be healed?

admin answers:

What is Astigmatism and can it be healed naturally! Astigmatism is caused when the eyeball loses its roundness and vision starts to become distorted. The eyes are never perfectly round so we all have astigmatism to some extent. They are constantly changing shape depending on the situation.

Astigmatism occurs every once in awhile and some people can even produce this ailment at will. This can be caused by pulling on the eye lids which causes blurred vision. The eyes usually will repair themselves in a matter of hours or sometimes days. This problem can be masked and your eyes never healed when you wear artificial lens.

Astigmatism is usually caused by unequal tension in the muscles around the eyes through mental strain. When your vision becomes blurry or distorted, this is a sign that your eyes need to relax and just take it easy. Most of the time we just ignore these signs.

Some of the things you can do to relax are stop what you are doing and take a quick break. Relax your neck and face by letting your head and eyes move more freely. Look away from what you are concentrating on and focus on objects across the room. Give your eyes a chance to move and view objects far away and then close again.

If you are at home, do the swinging exercise in front of a window. If possible, lie on the floor and let someone swing a pendulum over your head so that your eyes can focus on that object and move back and forth. In order to function properly, your eyes need to move around. Staring straight at something for hours at a time can do a lot of harm. That is why it’s best to take short breaks and just walk around.

Eating a healthy diet can always help improve your health as well as your eyesight. Be sure to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. Always remember to keep your eyes in motion and take breaks often. This can help heal astigmatism naturally.

One woman who has shared about her astigmatism problems and how they were solved :

Adrienne Smith is a work at home business owner and she enjoys helping others find the same success.

Having had poor eyesight herself from many hours of computer work, she was thrilled to learn of these amazing methods that have improved her eyesight. If you would like to learn more about the methods mentioned above, please be sure to visit Vision Without Glasses today. Http://

Chris asks…

Contacts or eyeglasses? n_n?

I have glasses(rarely use) and the lenses fell off. Next week i’m going to an eye examination so i can get a prescription and a new pair, my dad thinks its the time whether or not i should get glasses, contacts, or both. I’ve never had contacts before and i really need glasses or contacts because i’m nearsighted and it gets annoying at school when i can’t see the board.

I’m afraid to get contacts because i hate getting things in my eyes, afraid of touching my eyes, afraid of them making my vision worse/blind me, and that i could lose them going to the back of my eyes.(I’m 15 btw)I’m really nervous about them

I look terrible with glasses on so i want to know these about contact lenses:

* Whats a good brand of contact lenses(for a 15 y/o) that don’t fall out easy, dry out fast, can possibly breath, and are good for first-timers?
* How many hours can you wear a contact?
* What are some things do i need to keep in mind while wearing/considering for contacts?
* Any dangers of contacts?
* Do they hurt? n_n

Okay thnx ;) I may come back and ask more questions about them btw so keep that in mind ;)

admin answers:

Like you I absolutely loathed wearing glasses. I think they make me look really geeky, so I wore contacts for years. I only wear glasses now because I found a style that suits me and I can’t be bothered with the putting in/taking out etc. Plus I’m older and glasses seem to suit older people more. Anyway in answer to your questions:~~~~~~~

It’s not possible for contacts to go to the back of your eye. I used to wear them every day and the worst thing that happened was I rubbed my eye and the (soft) lens folded and got lost in my upper eyelid. It just felt like I had something in my eye and I easily got it out.

It took me at least half an hour to get the lenses in the first time I wore them. I HATED sticking a finger in my eye. The technique is to use a mirror and use one eye to look at the other eye (ie you’re not focusing on the finger-end poking the lens straight in there!)

As long as you keep your hands clean, don’t handle noxious chemicals or spices before inserting or removing lenses, keep the lenses properly clean, and don’t overwear them, you shouldn’t have problems. A big advantage of contacts is that you can have a huge sunglasses collection, if you’re into that. Rather than having just one pair of prescription ones.

Also, contacts don’t fog up in rain, never catch on clothing, don’t get knocked. Mine have never ever fallen out, wereas glasses can fall off. Only thing you shouldn’t do with lenses in is rub your eyes, like I said.

It took me a while to get used to putting them in but I quickly learned to take them out without any mirror at all. Eventually I learned to put them in without a mirror either.

The ones I got on with best were called Specsavers Asphericlens, made of methafilcon A. Precision UV were also good, as they have around 75% water content. Asphericlens has slightly lower water but were more comfortable. Specsavers only trade in the UK but you can find methafilcon A lenses by googling.

If you have the extra cash and don’t want to be bothered cleaning lenses, daily disposables are obviously more hygenic. The only disadvantage is that they’re flimsier and very slightly harder to put in. Daily disposables are better if you only want to wear lenses occasionally eg at parties etc.

They used to claim you could only wear contacts for 8 hours. I used to wear glasses first thing in the morning and last thing at night and contacts in the middle of the day. The last lot I had (Asphericlens) I’m pretty sure had a 15 hour wearing time. My problem was I was sick for a long time and kept falling asleep with the lenses in and my optician said (judging by the state of my eye, not anything I said) thatt I’d been overwearing them.

I would say the main problem with contacts is if you have very sensitive eyes you can get this feeling like there’s something in your eye and you have to take the lens out, rinse it and put it back in again. I had this problem all the time in the mid 90s, but by the late 90s/2000s the technology had improved. Also the 1-step cleaning solutions are way better than ones involving different bottles, pills etc. I never had any problems with the 2 brands I mentioned.

Soft contacts do not hurt at all, you can’t even tell they’re in, except you can see clearly. They give better visual correction than glases. It’s basically like having naturally perfect eyesight. Just make sure you rember to take them out if you’re into catnapping!

Susan asks…

How can I achieve a genuinely healthy lifestyle?

I am really interested to be introduced to recipes without much sugar,sodium or cholesterol/fat. However, I still want it to taste good. Am I asking too much? I don’t want to eat healthy “alternatives”. I want the food I eat to be beneficial to my health. This is not for weight loss purposes. I just want to take better care of myself. Please educate me on this topic.

admin answers:

The best way is to avoid sugar in most items. Replace it with Stevia. It is an all natural plant extract that is as sweet as sugar with zero bad effects and is actually good for you. Avoid any deep fried foods. It doesn’t matter how they are done or in what oils, it is very bad for the body and attacks the circulatory system and the heart. If you are cooking food in the oven, do it on a rack and drain away the fat. If cooking chicken, turkey or anything that has a moderate fat level, boil it first or microwave it first, and drain the fat, rinse it, and then oven cook it. Buy whole grain breads. Never use margarine. Only use butter, and salt free butter is the best (usually found in the freezer section). Avoid soft drinks completely. Drink milk (chocolate or white / or rice milk if you are lactose intolerant … Chocolate or white) and unsweetened fruit juices or good old water. The sports drinks are as bad as soft drinks and are hard on your system. Even the ones that are sugar free. The sugar replacement is worse for you than sugar. Avoid potato chips, french fries, and all other junk foods. Eat Yogurt or fruit instead or cut up veggies instead. Make certain that the yogurts you buy are sugar free or very low sugar. The sweetness can come from the added fruit for flavour (the fruit will have a natural sugar content). Have a smoothie for breakfast every day (2 heaping tablespoons of plain yogurt, 1 banana, a few strawberries, and a small handful of other fruit pieces in a large cup. Top up with orange juice and put in blender till liquefied. Then pour into a glass and drink.) A great and easy breakfast that starts the day in a great way. It makes you feel good all day and keeps you regular too. It is great for your overall health and your systems operation of cleaning out the bad and enforcing the good. Eat at least 3 meals a day. Never miss your breakfast, and a small lunch and a fair size dinner. Or you can spread the meals after breakfast into 3 other small meals (which is actually better for you). If you drink, do so with moderation and avoid the junk foods that go with it. Use sea salt for flavouring instead of regular salt, and use it with great moderation. Cut up some veggies for snacks, and use a fat free dip for extra flavour.
This will change your metabolism around in about a 2 to 3 week period. If you have extra weight to lose, it will just fall off after that, and you will have a great amount of energy. It will also clean your system out at a rate that your body can comfortably handle. Your bad choloresterol levels will go down and disappear and the benefits to your health will be amazing. You will sleep better and have more energy. You will think better and clearer, your eyesight may even improve. In short order the old junk foods and fatty foods will not have the appeal at all and will actually taste bad or sickening to you after you have tasted the good stuff regularly. You will just lose those cravings completely. Walk a bit every day. This is good for the heart and your overall health. If you have a dog, walk it a couple of times a day. You will both enjoy it. You don’t have to do any heavy workouts, just be active. Your strength will increase with the better foods naturally, and you will feel more energized anyway. Extreme workouts are hard on the system and very hard on the heart, even for the most healthy person. The foods will taste much better and very mouth watering using the methods I have passed along. Try it. You will be completely surprised and changed for the better within an month. Not only is this a great way to improve your health, it is actually a considerably cheaper way to eat and it has great benefits.

admin answers:

I read all the books about strengthening my eyes because my glasses are real thick. The muscles that control your eyes are smaller than a pinhead. You can not “build them up”.
The reason for the poor eyesight is the shape of the eyeball. Either too deep or too shallow. There is no natural way to change that.
I just wish my glasses didn’t get blasted in the rain so i can’t see..

Your Questions About Naturally Improve Eyesight Without Glasses

Mark asks…

My sister needs glasses?

My mom says my little sister needs glasses. She’s the youngest of 2, in the 3rd grade.

We are worried because no one in my family has ever needed glasses. Luckily, this goes for my grandparents on both sides as well. Only my grandpa on my dad’s side actually needs them to read the morning paper, but even without them, he can make out words.

THE QUESTION: Since my sister’s still a growing kid, I was wondering if there is any way to improve her vision naturally.

I have no idea how glasses work, so I’m just spewing any additional info you may need:

–Just in case you need an idea of my family’s ages, my parents are 40-50 years old, and my other sister and I are 18 and 20.
–I am unsure but my mom said my sister’s 27 of 20/20. What does that mean?
video games than my other sibling and I did when we were little. Also, she does not eat healthy. Personally, I think this is why she needs them.

Any help, advice, or input would be very much appreciated. Thank you so much!

admin answers:

I wore glasses for a couple of years and became very nearsighted. But one day I was bored at home and googled natural ways to improve eyesight. I found something called the Bates Method. It was a method to improve eyesight made by doctor William Bates in the early 1900s. He helped a lot of people with different vision problems improve their vision and get rid of their glasses. Doctors ofcourse will tell you that the eye exercises of the Bates Method don’t work because they want to sell you glasses. But tell your sister to relax and do palming.Tell her to sit in a comfortable position and cup her eyes with her hands so there isnt any light going through them. Tell her to relax for a couple of minutes. Tell her to rest her elbows in a table or desk so her hands dont get tired while palming. Also have her look at far away objects and then near objects to work the cilary muscle. Tell her to play outside more and exercise and not to watch a lot of tv or play video games. You can google more exercises and relaxation techniques because the Method says the person must relax if they want to improve. I was able to achieve normal vision and don’t wear glasses anymore.

Lisa asks…

Glasses and sight improvement?

I wear glasses for astigmatism -0.75,-1.75,180 and my friend -4.5 in both eyes.

My son given glasses for +0.50,-1.00,180 and her daughter told yesterday needs glasses for +1.00 in one eye and +3.00 in the other.

Just a bit confused as to why my eyesight is gradually getting worse, friends seems to have settled, my son has been told his may gradually worsen like mine and friend daughter has been told hers will probably head back down towards 0.

Any opticians out there explain ?
My friend and our are late 20′s and the 2 children are 5 and 6 yrs old.

admin answers:

Can you free yourself from contact lenses and glasses completely, naturally and without surgery? Read on to see how I did this seemingly impossible feat.

More than 10 years ago, I began a quest to improve my vision. I was 35 years old at the time and once again I needed to get a stronger pair of glasses to pass my motor vehicle eye test. I was quickly sliding down the slippery slope of dependency on corrective lenses – a path not unfamiliar to 100 million or more Americans. The stronger the lenses, the less my eyes had to work and the weaker they got (and the cycle starts over again). I began a search for another way. At the heart of my search was the seemingly unreachable goal of eliminating my need for corrective lenses of any kind. Laser eye surgery was either not readily available or not as widespread as it is now. Plus it was incredibly expensive not to mention the risk to your eyesight. As a young man, I had assumed that God had blessed me with spectacular vision. 20/20 until well past my 20′s. And perhaps He did. But not in the way that you might think. When I was about 30 years old I started to notice a slight blurrying of my vision. When my vision began to show signs of degradation, I immediately began looking for the cause. Yes, the cause. Why did my vision work “yesterday” but now seem to need some help? As you will read, I do not readily accept many things that most people view as inevitable and that included the need for glasses.

All of my life, I have been surrounded by people that wear corrective lenses of some sort. Kids everywhere have glasses or contacts. I should feel fortunate that I didn’t need glasses until my 30′s, right? But why should I (or anyone) need glasses so early in life? Why do kids need glasses? Could it be that, with few exceptions, the eyes just do not function properly for as long as the rest of the body? It just didn’t make any sense to me. But, now at 46 years of age, I have no need for any corrective lenses and I did not have surgery. My eyes are as good as they were when I was a kid – better than 20/20.

Thomas asks…

my eye power low 1.75minus how can i improe?

admin answers:

There is not a way to improve it naturally, you can wear glasses/contacts but they will not improve your eyesight, you can have laser eye surgery which is there to help you see without glasses or contact lenses, but in reality laser eye surgery only covers the symptoms if your myopia is eye ball shape related but if is is corneal related then it improves it.

Good luck

Carol asks…

how can i stop being nearsighted?

how i improve my eyesight without wearing glasses since my mom can’t afford contact lenses and I’m too young to get laser surgery, but i hardly wear glasses but my doctors told me that i don’t have to wear them all the time but use them for the board or when i drive i need your help

admin answers:

One way to help eyesight is to hang around people who have natural perfect eyesight. People who have blurry vision radiate their incorrect vision habits to others. Others pick up on these incorrect vision habits and get blurry vision themselves. People with good vision are less stressed and more easy going. They tend to be a bit more spontaneous and out going. Avoiding challenging seeing activities like computers, tv, and reading can help, but is not really practical. It is better to learn how to use our eyes during these activities.

The best place to start improving eyesight naturally is to read the best books. I have a referral link to one of them on my website. Most people do best by getting the help of a local teacher. I also have a link to a very good list of teachers around the world. I can interview a teacher you may be interested in to make sure that they are teaching correct principles and not eye exercises or potions.

Richard asks…

Poll: Can vision be improved naturally?

What do you think? What are your experiences with trying to improve vision naturally? Which technique is most effective? For example bates or an eye exercises video such as eyerobics, link here:

It looks like a scam but has a refund guarantee if it doesn’t work so if it didn’t work for everyone they’d be out of buisness now.

I personally think they can work at least to a degree and certainely on some people.

For example “The secret of perfect vision” book and other vision improvement books have got many positive reviews on amazon:

Bates book-

Relearning to see-

There are a few negative reviews but remember that nothing works the same way for everyone. And they cannot all be made up as they mention good and bad points unlike the websites from which the products originate and thier testimonials are all very positive.

Rebuild your vision-

Some people on this site have said it’s a scam but i’m still not sure.

On the reviews I have found many different mixed opinions. A few on “secret of perfect vision” said that the + lenses were harmful but on other websites such as this one:

+ lenses actually reduced the progression of myopia. So I’m still unsure about plus lenses. I’m reading this book online:

It says that myopia is caused by close work and that the eye cannot shrink once it has grown. However the ciliary spasm can be and it can cause up to 1.25 D of myopia. My myopia is 1D and it hasn’t got worse (test my vision every few days). So all I could have is a spasm (which happens before the eye grows) and that I could completely reverse my myopia. I do a lot of close work BTW but I always look brief periods into the distance and that relaxes my eye.

Even on other website, they say that there is growing eveidence myopia is caused by close work. And I also like how the book “the myopia myth” shows how ignorant the health profession is, not just eye doctors.

So, I know that there must be something that works in some/most people but what are the best methods?

Please advise. Any eye doctors with the typical response “if they worked then everyone would be doing it” are not welcome. The reason that is is because previous studies have been ignored. The book “myopia myth” explains this.
Hippo 37, No it isn’t despicable on what I’m doing. Just read the book “myopia myth” I put in the description. The book CLEARLY explains that many scientific studies to prove preventive measures on myopia but they have been ignored by eye doctors, organizations, government ect. I think it will be only be a matter of time before the public know the truth. Soon it will be a major breakthrough in history, we will see documentarys such as “The great myopia scam”. It is the eye professionals who are dispicable, and you aren’t helping. PLZ take you ignorance elsewhere, and stop giving the wrong message that nothing can be done to prevent or cure referactive eye conditions. GOOD DAY. I hope you end up with a detached retina because your eye has grown too long and you haven’t listened to my advice.

Steven asks…

what can i do to imrove my eyesight????

i don’t want to wear glasses or contact lenses… i just want to imrove naturally…. is their anything i can do, maybe some exercises or something??

admin answers:

Eat carrots

Do eye exercises…

Hold your finger about 6 in from your face, look between your finger and an object more than 10 feet away, in a straight line, focus on your finger then focus on the object, repeat.

When you get tired of that.. Look as far as you can right, left, up, and down without turning your head, roll your eyes in a circle.

Another one you could try would be to close your eyes and squeeze (not too hard, lol)

Rapid blinking.
