Your Questions About Eye Exercises To Improve Vision

Lisa asks…

Do optometrists and ophthalmologists keep secrets from their patients to make money?

If they say there are eye exercises (which there is, it has been proved by many ophthalmologists) to improve eye vision, then they wouldn’t make money. They tell you that you can only wear glasses (to make money off the frames)

So, that is ONE of MANY secrets they keep. Do you know any more?
And besides glasses, they only reccomend LASIK- another money hungry company

Best Answer

Optometrists and ophthalmologists don’t necessarily keep secrets from anyone in regards to eye excesses. They are passing on what they are trained to do and how they were trained. If eye excercises worked so gret, then the millions of people who wear and purchase eye glasses would be doing them.

The bottom line is, if you need glasses, then the lens in your eye is out of focus. There are two ways to do this. One is by surgery and the other is by wearing glasses. There is no way around it.

I would not call them secrets. I would call them “alternatives.” Some people believe in alternative medicine and some follow the medical industry. I am sure if you do enough research you may find a remedy. Good Luck! If you find away around wearing glasses, let me know because I’m tired of it! LOL

Michael asks…

admin answers:

You have good vision now. As to whether it will stay that way, no one can say. There are no exercises you can do to maintain it. Just have your eyes examined annually or biannually at least to ensure your eyes are healthy.

Sandra asks…

Is there any way to improve your vision without laser surgery?

I am short sighted and I would like to see better naturally without my contacts, which I have recently learned do worsen your vision because your eyes grow to depend on them. Are there any exercises or anything I could do to improve my sight?

Charles asks…

Is there really a way to improve vision?

My vision is just getting worse and worse.
I heard about carrots being a myth…I’m not quite sure about eye exercises…and surgery is just not gonna happen….

admin answers:

Carrots aren’t a myth, they don’t improve vision but they aid in your eyes ability to see in the dark.

How old are you, what eye conditions do you have, are you wearing glasses or contacts?

Glasses are best, Contacts do little to help and may actually worsen your vision, surgery is best when your vision has stabalized usually around the age of 25.

Donna asks…

Help with my vision?

I just wanted to know if eye exercises work to improve vision and how long it will take to improve. Also have you ever heard of long hair ruining anybodys sight??I want to become a marine sniper so I need 20 20 vision. Wil laser eye surgery work and what is the cost??

admin answers:

I had Laser eye surgery done after wearing glasses for 16 years. It has been perfect for me. I have had no changes. Of course, as I age, I expect changes. I also co-manage refractive surgery and have seen hundreds of successful patients. It doesn’t hurt, generally. There is a bit of pressure, but no real pain if you have Laser eye surgery. The PRK version (where no flap is cut) is a little more uncomfortable for the first few days following the procedure. I’ve seen several people who said they were in some pain, but healed just fine. I used to wear both glasses and contact lenses. I had Laser eye surgery done and it’s the best decision I’ve ever made. I can see clearly, no squinting, no driving with glasses anymore. I can read road signs, see the individual leaves in the trees (they’re not just a blurry mess anymore). It’s also nice to be able to see what time it is when I wake up. The procedure is painless (although a bit uncomfortable) but takes less than 15 minutes. Highly recommended.

Nancy asks…

Can I improve my vision without surgery?

Basically, I am interested in absolutely everything (not just food and exercises) that I use to improve my vision without going to surgery. I need specific tips and advice. So if you find some eye foods, please not only say what ingredients help the vision but also recommend Best products available for purchase worldwide. Thanks.

admin answers:

Most people believe that once they are diagnosed with some vision problem and start wearing eye glasses or contact lenses to correct them, they will have to do so for life in order to see better. Those who want a permanent solution to improve eyesight typically resort to Lasik or other corrective eye surgeries. But what if we told you that you can improve your vision without surgery and can see perfectly well without using eyeglasses or contact lenses? No, we are not kidding you. Do read on to know how to improve eyesight without surgery.

Need For Eyesight Improve Naturally

Yes, LASIK eye surgery can be used to improve vision, but that too comes with its own downsides.

During laser eye surgery, small bits of corneal tissue are removed with the help of the laser, thus reshaping your cornea and improve vision.This is a very intricate procedure and requires expert precision. Thus, if the surgery is not performed by an expert surgeon (and many time seven if it is), the reshaping of the cornea may not be done correctly and the results may be less than optimum.

This may require you to undergo LASIK again after few years or even few months. Lasik also has quite a few side effects such as dry eyes,induced astigmatism, haze, and also the occurrence of halos or start bursts at night, which can be quite bothersome. Thus, natural vision correction methods, which are a far healthier option, should be considered.

About Natural Vision Improvement

Natural vision improvement is not a concept that is familiar to many. In fact,chances are you may never have heard of improving your eyesight naturally before today. But, it is indeed possible to improve eyesight naturally.

The main premise behind all natural methods of improving eyesight is that you can see only as well as you use your eyes. Thus, if you do not use your eyes properly, you will not be able to see properly and vice versa. Dr. William Bates first discovered this concept in the early part of the 20th century. He went on to devise some simple eye relaxation techniques that could be used to improve eyesight naturally. These techniques are known as the Bates Method for eyesight improve naturally.

The Bates Method For Natural Eyesight Improvement

Dr.Bates discovered that most eye problems were not due to any physical eye damage but mainly due to increased strain on the eye muscles. Seeing by fixing your eyes in one place instead of letting your eyes move from side to side, squinting to see, or straining your eyes for a clearer look are all poor vision habits that add immense strain to your eyes and consequently result in deterioration of your eyesight.

By relaxing the strain on your eyes, it is possible to restore perfect vision. The techniques that make up the Bates Method teach you just that ¨C how to relax your eyes. Thus, by practicing one or more of these techniques regularly, you can improve eyesight naturally to a considerable degree.

Here ¡s a look at the eye relaxation techniques that are included in the Bates Method and which help to enhance your vision:

Palming:Cup your eyes with your palms so as to block out the light. Do not press on your eyes. Keep your eyes covered for about 10 minutes and try to imagine complete darkness and relax your eyes.
Swinging:This involves swaying your body gently from side to side while standing up and focusing on a distant object. You have to let your eyes blink throughout the process. This helps to reduce the rigidity of your eyes and relaxes them too. About a 100 swings a day are adequate.
Sunning:Raise your head to the sun with your eyes shut. Move your head in either direction so as to ¡®sun¡¯ your eyes completely. Breathe deeply and slowly. After sunning your eyes, relax them further by palming for a couple of minutes. Sunning should only be done in the morning or evening and not in the afternoon when the sun is at its harshest. This technique will help to reduce your sensitivity to light and also enhance the sharpness of your eyes.

By practicing the above techniques as laid out in the Bates Method, you can improve eyesight naturally.

Other options that will help you in eyesight improve naturally are:

Vision improvement therapy with eye exercises.
Using eye exercise devices such as EyeRelax that help to improve your vision and treat eye problems such as myopia, presbyopia, amblyopia etc.

Thus, eye surgery is not the only solution to your vision problems. Natural methods of improving vision can be used to not only improve eyesight but also to keep your eyes from developing vision defects.

Your Questions About Eye Exercises To Improve Vision

Richard asks…

Eye Exercises know any?

I want some exercises to improve my vision over the coarse of couple of months or sooner. You know something I can do every day.

admin answers:

I don’t think there are any you can do to improve your vision in the way glasses would.. Y’know, just general vision.. But there are some that well improve your eye reflexes and things.. I have this game called ‘Sight Training’ for DS, which is alright.. Basically there are some exercises that will -apparently- help with things like reflex and uhh.. Well, I don’t know what else, I stopped playing it xD
But yeah, try playing games that require you to move your eyes quickly? If those are the sort of exercises you want, anyway.

Otherwise, things you shouldn’t do are things like go on the computer with no light on (like I am now, hah) or read with a book too close to you.. That’s what my optician used to tell me, anyway.

Michael asks…

Is there anything I can do to improve my vision?

I’m starting to worry about the effect of working on a computer all day will have on my eye sight.

Is it true that working on a computer can damage your eyes? I have no choice, it is my job.

Is there any “exercises” you can do that will improve vision?

admin answers:

Include fresh vegetables in your diet, that contains vitamin A. I do not know of exercises that improves eyesight. Get plenty of rest, don’t strain your eyes, and get a yearly checkup. Wear glasses if needed. I have been at a computer since 1992 and so far have had no problems. Eyesight normally does not improve, it gets worst as times goes. That is natural. On most computers you can enlarge the text size if needed. That would ease the strain on your eyes. I have not heard of computers damaging people eyes. Get a better monitor if that’s causing problems.

John asks…

eye exercises for bad eye sight?


I have bad vision now becuz i used 2 spend alot of time infront of the computer and i now wear glasses to see distant objects. I wanted to know if eye exercises can help me regain my vision or even improve my vision? Has any1 tried eye exercises and seen improvements in their eyesights?

admin answers:

I started getting blurry vision when I was 14 years old. I hated the thought of imperfect eyesight or wearing glasses. I did some research and found books on eye exercises. My eyes felt different in the beginning but I eventually got used to the eye exercises and nothing changed. For most people eye exercises(eye pushups, eye aerobics, eye yoga) don’t change the way we use our eyes, and don’t address the real issues of blurry vision.

My awesome brother, being aware of my interest in eyesight, came across a book by Dr William H Bates. He discovered that we interfere with our eyesight. I perfected my eyesight by stopping staring and diffusion, and by centralizing, moving, and relaxing my vision system.

I have a link to one of the best books on Natural Eyesight Improvement on my website. It contains most of Dr. William H. Bates book and explains Natural Eyesight Improvement very well. Finding a good Natural Eyesight Improvement teacher near you is most helpful. I have great a link to Natural Eyesight Improvement teachers around the world. I would be glad to interview teachers for people to make sure they are teaching the correct principles.

Ken asks…

Exercises, secrets, foods to eat to improve vision?

Im looking to make my vision 20/20 or at least near it. my vision is pretty bad, i cant really see much anything closer than 3 feet without it being blurry. I’ve worn glasses since i was 7-8 years old, i am now turning 15, how can i improve my vision. I’ve heard of nutrients or vitamins to eat, exercises for your eyes, not wearing your glasses to improve it, please tell me ways to help my vision out. I’ve come across websites that keep you on the tip of your toes on how to fix it but ask for you to pay a ridiculous price. Please dont give me links for them. Thanks, i would GREATLY appreciate it.

admin answers:

Maybe you knew this but carrots help your eyesight become stronger and they’re healthy for you as well!

It’s very important to get a good night’s sleep and to not stand so close to the TV screen. Try not to stare at any electronics for too long such as iPod or computers.

Last but not least, still continue to wear your glasses or even consider getting contacts! Laser eye surgery isn’t for me, but if that’s what you think is best then go for it!

Michael asks…

Has anyone tried Dr. William H Bates eye exercises??

Has anyone tried to do these eye exercises and actually improved their vision??

admin answers:

It does work, and impressively so. I used to have 20/100 ‘average’ binocular eyesight (both eyes simulateously), but after a month it was 20/40. I also get thousands of clear flashes of 20/13 or better (verified on Snellen eye chart). Nothing feels as great as being able to see strands of people’s hair from 1/5 to 1/4 mile away or even details inside a jet stream in the sky from 30 miles away!

The Bates method is about relaxation and relearning good eye habits similar to people with perfect eyesight. It is not about exercising the eye muscles, which is a common misconception. People exercise their eyes 25 minutes a day and revert to bad eye habits for the rest of the day. It just makes no sense…

Dr. Bates was simply someone with a deep understanding of how neuroscience plays a role in eyesight. He taught how to create mental imprints in the mind by visualizing something over and over as appearing perfect, leading to ‘clear flashes’. It’s a similar concept as muscle memory. You can read more about clear flashes here:,425.0.html

Thomas asks…

Are there ways to improve eyesight?

I am near-sighted and I want to know if there are ways to improve eyesight so I don’t need to wear eyeglasses anymore. Some sites says that doing eye exercises can improve eyesight like this link: ( But I’ve read another article saying that there are no evidence that doing eye exercises can improve vision ( Please help me! Thanks :)

admin answers:

‘if it was simple then I’d be out of a job’
That was written by someone involved in the selling of glasses. Tells you what their priorities are. Giving you a simple life and having good health pales into insignificance when it comes to their job being on the line. How exceptionally selfish and arrogant. (and its not only her, most are the same)

The funny thing is some people say eye exercise is unnecessary. One previous answer said ‘its bad because it makes your eyes tired’. Well avoiding any eye exercise and making your eye lazy would lead to…. Having lazy eyes. (and there are plenty of girls posting questions in this site who are desperate for help in this area.)

Anyway the muscles around your eye are vital for your eyesight to function. If I were to take them away or render them useless you’d be left with eyes that are unable to close or blink. Closing your eye is important for many things. Blinking moistens the eyes and helps disinfect them. Then… If I took away your extraocular muscles you’d be powerless to move your eyes around. You’d be unable to turn your eyes to look at a object directly. You’d also be unable to converge your eyes. This would lead you to having terrible double vision whenever you try to use your near vision.
And finally if I took away your ciliary muscle you would be unable to adjust your crystalline lens. This muscle enables the switch between using near and far vision.

What we are talking about is an important area and these things aren’t guaranteed to be working correctly for everyone. But we get so called ‘experts’ like Cynthia blindly saying this area has no importance or saying anyone who asks should not be concerned with it. (But do concern yourself over Cynthia and her ability to get money out of you.)

The people who say eye exercises are 100% useless for helping vision are either saying that to ensure people only consider buying glasses or they genuinely have no idea that things exist outside their dark hole (therefore they have no idea about the outside world and real life)

For evidence of eye exercises helping people i’ll list some sites that I know of:

Some people who used eye exercises to get improvement in their vision:
Meir Schneider (was blind, now drives car)
David de Angelis (was -4.50, now 20/20 + certified)
Aldous Huxley (was blind, later able to drive car)
Jane Kabarguina (was -7.00)
Janet Goodrich
Esther Joy van de Werf

So your decision is simple. Would you rather pay no money and try something out for just one hour to see if it makes a difference to you? Eye exercises and related techniques are just that. (You can walk away at any time) With glasses you will need to pay money to see a person like Cynthia, then be pressurised on the spot to choose a frame. Not easy to walk away from…

Try this video for a run through of ‘yoga eye exercise’:

I also advise you check your posture. You should be able to stand and walk easily with no strain. You should be able to look ahead with a horizontal gaze. (ie. Face not looking down at ground or up to sky. Just a normal straight ahead gaze.) Therapy balls and ‘foam rollers’ are excellent tools for posture improvement. Prices start from $15.

Carol asks…

Do glasses improve or ruin your eyesight?

I have 20/40 vision and short sightedness my optician told me that i had to wear my glasses all the time including watching tv. What I don’t understand is why somebody who cant see into the distance clearly, would need to wear glasses when looking at something close. It seems like they are trying to make your vision worst in order to make money.
And can eye exercises improve eyesight?

admin answers:

None actually. Ur eye sight becomes worse over time, wearing glasses slows down the process
it also has never been proven that tv or pc screens ruin ur sight, but just to be safe its better to buy glasses that reflect rays. Its a bit more expensive but it doesn’t make a difference in size shape or how it works with ur eyes
