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.

Michael asks…

Best screen for saving my the eyes?

Does any one know any good monitor or laptop screens that are good for the eyes? I am a student and software developer as well. For my eyes this means I have to spend almost 80% of my day in front of a screen.

My main problem is stability of vision. I got blurry vision some years back because of playing games on Ethernet that gave me my present spectacles. The condition has been deteriorating. And now working for long long hours at the screen, I feel my vision getting less stable and further deteriorating.

I know taking regular breaks and rubbing the eyes with the palm helps. Is there any other information you guys can give me? w.r.t screen or exercises. Appreciate your help.

Thank You.

admin answers:

With your computer monitor, I would suggest you use a lcd monitor. Lcd monitors apparently reduce the glare of the screen, hence making it friendlier to the eyes.

There are not many eye exercises which help improve vision. However, make sure you take enough of vitamin A and visit your eye doctor regularly.

Steven asks…

What’s going on with me? Can anyone please diagnose all of this?

I’m a 17 year old male. I try to live a very healthy lifestyle. I exercise, I eat well and in good portions, I sleep about as much as anyone else my age does, and I live a pretty happy stress free life. But recently, probably ever since I turned 17 back in May, I’ve been experiencing this very annoying mental issue that has stumped me and doctors since I started noticing it. I’ve also been experiencing many different kinds of other health issues along with it.
The head issue is very difficult for me to explain to people… But everything just seems to not seem real anymore, like it’s no longer my life or something. It all just seems like a big dream. I’m not performing very well cognitively, every time I try to analyze a problem or question in school, it feels like something is stopping me from figuring it out to my full ability. Recent memories, seem like dreams I had long ago. While talking to people, I sometimes say things that are completely ridiculous and stupid out of nowhere, and I don’t even know why I would say those things.
I went to see a psychiatrist/psychologist not really sure what they were called, I was just hooked up with them through my family doctor when I told him about the problems I’m having, which he also put me on a large waiting list for an MRI and CT scan. The head doctor told me that it was most likely because of all of the activities I involve myself in, stretching my brain in all different directions. I told her about this fantasy book that I am writing, that I have spent months on creating the mythology behind it all, also about my guitar playing, piano playing, my singing, I have been in several bands and jam with my friends a lot, about how often I play video games, how I can speak French like 50% fluently, and am starting to become fluent in German. She told me that all of these things, including school, were making me feel this way because I am stretching my mind in many different directions that overwork it and put a lot of pressure on it. So I stopped with the games as much for about a month, other than Call of Duty recently, I stopped writing my book, am trying to get more sleep, but none of this is making me feel better.
I am also very concerned about the head problem, because just recently (which I am going to the clinic tomorrow to get this checked out.) My right pupil has been about 2/3 dilated than my left pupil, and always stays this way. My eyes have been giving me many different feelings; dryness, soreness all around, lots of veins. Which brings me to another problem. My sight has gradually been getting worse for the past few months. I used to have perfect vision, but now everything that is far or even mid length away from me is blurry. Digital clocks, text on TVs, all blurry with halos around them. It just seems to be getting gradually worse. I have a eye doctor appointment for two weeks from now, so I will get the report on that. But I am just worried that I have some sort of serious brain problem that ties both of these problems together. Like a tumor, or an aneurysm. I’m really scared. I’m afraid to even sleep, because I worry that the aneurysm will go off or whatever happens, and I’ll die or go into a seizure and have serious brain damage for the rest of my life (I don’t know much about aneurysms). I’m just scared…
Other problems include serious back problems, my spine is bent sideways and I have to see the chiropractor every two weeks, I recently seemed to have developed lactose intolerance which was confirmed by a blood test, I get strange headaches a lot, I am very badly flat footed, and I’ve had to go to the doctor’s for a number of random infections, cankers, or any other simple thing, but this all just seems to be happening way too often.
Thank you so much for reading all of this, if you did. I’m just really scared and can’t sleep right now, but can’t do anything else about it at the moment.
None of this! used to be a problem about a year ago or so. None of it. This all has just been happening within that time line.
I also do not do drugs, or drink.

admin answers:

I’m not trying to be rude… But do you do drugs? Heavy drug use can permanently damage your brain in this way. If your answer is yes, then I’d say that’s what is causing these problems (minus the back and foot problems). If your answer is no, then I wish you the best of luck in finding the answer to your problems.

Mark asks…

I am half blind and I have a question.?

Dear friends,

Two years ago I was driving my car down the road and I was on the stop signal waiting for the green light. In that few minutes of waiting I started to stretch my neck leaning forward and sideward and then turning my face to the left and to the right. Normally when I am turning my face to the left and right I have this habit that I will give a little push with a help of my fingers on my chin and I normally apply a little force by pushing sideways and this way I can hear cracking sound at the back of my neck that gives me a little feeling of relief. But I am doing this action not because of I am feeling fatigue or tired but I feel it has become my habit of stretching my neck and sometimes I am stretching and cracking my fingers as well.

On January 4, 2007 something has really happened different after stretching my neck and this is the time when I felt my vision turned into like a scrambled TV Channel it looks like a horizontal lines that is moving up and down so fast. Then I tried to close my eyes for about 30 seconds then when I opened my eyes the scrambling vision was gone. I thought I can continue to drive so I stepped on the gas pedal and the car started running slowly but I was feeling of so much discomfort and worried about what is going on. After about 50 meters I am approaching a corner when my brother who was sitting next to me grabbed the stirring wheel and turned it to the left and in that, I was surprised and I break the car abruptly realizing that something is in front of us that I can not see. When I turned my whole face to my right side I saw that there was a car parked on the side of the road and I could have hit it if my brother wasn’t there. This is the point where I came to realize that I lost my peripheral vision. I also lost my balance but I can still walk, I am feeling drowsiness and vomited few times during the time when I was admitted in the hospital. I was in the hospital for about a week and I have been monitored and tests were also conducted such as Blood full profile, CBC, Absolute neutrofil count, CT scan
Vision field analysis, ECG, Carotid duplex scan. All the test have shown normal with some which is little above high level and this is the cholesterol level. The findings from the doctors show that I had a mild stroke which I am still doubtful to believe and so I am seeking for other opinion.
After two years my vision is still the same, but I don’t feel too much of drowsiness anymore which is a good improvement, I am doing exercise regularly and taking multi vitamins more on B1, B6 and B12, Aspirin is also required as blood thinner.
I need your help what is the best test to find out the actual problem? Can MRI test find the exact location of nerve which is affected? And what is the cure and prevention for this problem? I really appreciate your help and thank you in advance..

admin answers:

I have to agree with your doctors. I would like to reserve judgement as i haven’t seen your scans of course, but the symptoms you describe are pretty convincing for a small stroke affecting the occipital area of the brain, which deals with vision. A CT scan will often display evidence of a stroke, especially 24 hours or more after the event. MRI is an excellent modality for imaging the brain, but may not give any information not already gleaned from the CT. However if your CT was normal and the symptoms have persisted, it may be worth an MRI.
It is unlikely that you will recover the lost vision. If, as seems most likely, it was a stroke, the area of the brain has died and will not regenerate. Having had one stroke, you are at increased risk of further strokes, so no cigarettes, low fat diet, exercise, continue on aspirin, and get regular check ups with your doctor.

Lisa asks…

Convergence insufficiency (CI). PLEASE, help me!?

As of November 2010 I started having some symptoms like eye strain, pain on my eyes and serious difficulties whenever I tried to read. At the moment, I saw a doctor in order to see what was happening to me. The doctor prescribed me new glasses but it didn’t solve my problem, I returned there twice more and took new glasses and eye drops but it was useless. I still had serious problems to read.
Three moths later I went to another city and saw another doctor. This doctor also precribed me new glasses and told me that the muscles of my eyes were weak. He asked to make pencil pushups and said it would solve my problem. I got new glasses for the third time and started doing the exercices. A month later I returned to my doctor’s office to tell him I wasn’t felling better. At the moment he asked me to make an orthoptic test with another doctor who worked in the same hospital. I did it at the same day but nothing was found. The doctor told me I had tendency to develop strabismus but it wasn’t important and he also told me my problem might disappear in a few months.
After that, I visited another doctor who suggested me to use contact lenses, it was horrible and useless. I also saw general practitioner who discovered that my blood pression was a little high, probably because I get too stressed with my vision problem.
About six months ago I finally found a doctor who diagnosed my problem, convergence insufficiency. Nevertheless, the treatment prescribed by this doctor isn’t working. He asked me to do do some exercises in a doctor’s office and at home too, I did it but it didn’t help me.
I have searched about this disease and it’s treatment. I discovered that some doctors use prism reading glasses, training spactacle lenses ( I don’t know what it is.) and even surgery to treat this disorder. But my doctors say that these methods are not good. In their opinion, orthoptic exercises is the solution for me.
At present I’m doing more exercises in another clinic, actually I’ve done only one session there yet. I’m not sure it will work and sometimes I get desperate when I read about people who are trying to get rid of this problem for 5 years or even more.
It’s even harder for me because I’m a student and the only thing I do is to read. I love reading but my vision problem is stopping me from doing that. If you have already had this problem or if you know someone in anywhere who can help me, please tell me!

Thank you for reading it.

My name is Paulo Ricardo and I’m from Brazil.

admin answers:

My first stop would be wikipedia or google for a quick reference. I actually had a similar question not even 5 days ago, but I couldn’t find the answer. If it’s possible, try getting help from someone with more knowledge/experience/expertise, like a professional if it’s possible. This can be pretty important.

I saw a forum with this online, but I didn’t have time to read it all. Try checking it out. I want to help out more, but I’m not 100% sure about the answer. Sorry I’m not much help. I hope you found your answer! Good luck!

George asks…

Help understand!?

Please explain wat this means(today!)

When the room light is low, your eye adjusts in several ways. First, the rod and cone cells on the retina begin to produce more light-sensitive chemicals. These light-sensitive chemicals are the first step in detecting the light, converting it to an electrical signal and transmitting that electrical signal to the brain. Second, the iris muscles relax, which causes the opening of your eye, the pupil, to become very large. This allows your eye to collect as much light as possible. Finally, the nerve cells in the retina adapt so that they can work in low light. These three changes take about 20 minutes to 2 hours, but they increase your sensitivity to low light by about 10,000 times.
When you read, your eye must be able to focus an image of the words onto your retina. To do this, the iris, as well as the muscles that control the shape of your lens, must contract to keep the focused image on the retina. If you read in low light, your visual muscles get mixed signals: Relax to collect the most light, but at the same time, contract to maintain the focused image. When that object is poorly lit, focusing becomes even more difficult because the contrast between the words and the page is not as great, which decreases the eye‘s ability to distinguish visual detail. That ability is called visual acuity. Your eyes have to work harder to separate the words from the page, which strains your eye muscles. Consider this to be strenuous exercise for your eye muscles. So your eye muscles will ache, much as your arm muscles and leg muscles become sore after strenuous exercise.

When your eyes are working this hard for a long period of time, the strain may cause a number of physical effects. Symptoms of eye strain include sore eyeballs, headaches, back and neck aches, drooping eyelids and blurred vision. Because you often don’t blink enough when focusing on a single object, you may also experience uncomfortable dryness in your eyes. None of this damages your eyes, and all of it eventually goes away after you stop straining them. Many eye doctors leave it at that, but some note that eye strain may contribute to nearsightedness. Most people who are nearsighted were born that way, but there is evidence that prolonged eye strain can make it worse.

If you are comfortable reading with a flashlight (or other low light) and don’t experience any of the above symptoms of eye strain, it’s probably fine for you to read this way. It’s certainly easier on your eyes to read in good light, however. You can also avoid eye strain when you’re reading by blinking frequently and taking a moment to focus on something out the window or across the room every 15 to 30 minutes.
thanks soomuch

admin answers:

Ok basically what it’s saying is that there are muscles in your eyeball right around your pupil that control whether it is big or small. These are also the same muscles that make an image (whatever you are looking) stay in focus while you are looking at it.

When you read in low light, the pupil muscles want to relax to open up the pupil more and let more light in so you can see better, but at the muscles also want to tighten and contract (making the pupil smaller) so you can focus better. This causes strain on your eyes because they are trying to relax and contract at the same time — conflicting desires basically.

It is also saying that by causing this strain on your eyes, you may be causing eventual slight damage, but probably not. If you are comfortable reading with just a flashlight (aka in low light), then your eye is fine and your muscles are working together well .if this is a problem, then don’t do it. The advice about taking breaks or looking away while reading is just good advice in general, especially if you are looking at a computer screen for extended periods of time.

Google search for stuff about eyes and eye muscles and whatnot. It should help add detail if you want it.

Your Questions About Eye Exercises For Better Vision

May 8, 2012

Linda asks…

Did I just see my friend’s aura?

I have been trying to learn how to see auras for the last couple of days. I have been doing eye exercises to train my eyes and this morning I was practicing with a friend of mine. I put her in front of a white wall and concentrated of her brow chakra and after a minute or two I could see a shiny outline around her head. It was in my peripheral vision and when I tried to shift my focus to look at it, it went away. I could get a good enough look to say what color it was but I THINK it was kinda bluish purple with green and yellow around it. It kinda looked like a puddle of water in a parking lot that has gasoline in it or whatever causes that iridescent sheen. If you know what I’m talking about. Anyway, I’m excited! Did I see her aura? And if that’s what it was, what do those colors mean?

admin answers:

You did see her aura! Congratulations. Blue means relaxed, or at ease. Green is at peace with nature, and purple is spiritual. However it depends on the shade of the color. Yellow is happiness.

George asks…

Very sudden decline in vision? Should I be worried? (im only 14)?

In about a year and a half, my vision has gone from -2.75 in both eyes to -4 in one eye and -4.25 in the other. My opthamologist said this was very strange because i have not had any growth spurts or anything like that. He has requested i get a blood work up and be sure to have my bloodsugar checked. I am not sure if this is relevant but i have also been having stomach aches lately. I was sick on sunday and monday with what I thought was the stomach flu but I have not been able to eat anything sense then without getting an upset stomach. Last night, my stomach randomly started hurting so bad i was ready to cry. A little back-round info about me (im not sure if it will be helpful): I am just under 5ft 9 and i weigh about 105lb. I have always been tall and slim. I started wearing glasses in 3rd grade and then started wearing contacts last fall. I have gotten a few migraines before but not recently. I don’t eat the most healthy diet (i eat a lot of sugar and crap) but i get quite a bit of exercise (i ride horses and i am starting rugby). I drink A LOT of water and i normally have a pretty good appetite (i just have super high metabolism). Also, i have mitral valve prolapse but it has not caused any problems for me. My cardiologist considered the idea that i might have Marfan syndrome but that was ruled out two years ago. Any ideas about why my vision declined so quickly? Anything I should be worried about?…I will add to this if anyone has other questions. Thanks!

admin answers:

If your ophthalmologist recommends lab testing for diabetes and such, there may be other reasons beyond what you’ve stated here why he thinks you need a work up. I can’t think of why your stomach aches could be related to your increase in nearsightedness, but it does sound like you need to get it checked by a doctor. Drinking lots of water is one of several symptoms that may indicate diabetes.

That said, based on your prescription alone, and the change that you report has occurred over a year and a half, there is a very real possibility (probability) that it is completely normal. Folks who are nearsighted tend to get more nearsighted through the teenage years and usually stabilize in the late teens/early twenties. Some years there may be small changes, but some years there may be big changes. Overall, 1 to 1.5 diopters of change is not unusual for someone your age with your prescription. I see this all the time in my practice and try to prepare young patients and their parents that the magnitude of their nearsightedness will increase as they grow.

Betty asks…

Upper foreskin of the eye enlargement? Accompanied by risen temperature and occasional headaches.?

My right eye‘s upper foreskin is bigger than that of my left eye‘s.
I’ve recently been having my vision turn blurry for a few seconds before it adjusts, near-sight and far-sight. My eyes feel uncomfortable, generally. My head hurts slightly once in a while and I think I might be lagging (short pause, like ‘FPS’).
Short information: I’m a male of 17. Don’t exercise (much), don’t smoke. Rarely drink.

Well, I guess this is as much as I can say for now. Thanks, Yahoo members. Good day. *Goes to watch Sliders*

admin answers:

You may simply have a swollen eyelid. I sleep on my right side and when I awake in the morning I have slight swelling in my right eyelid. It goes away as the day wears on.

You could be rubbing your eye which can cause swelling, or allergies can do it. If you are a computer geek, or play lots of computer games, you could be suffering from eye strain which will cause the blurred vision.

Just some info for you to think about.

Daniel asks…

Advice for a nearsighted teenage guy?

Hey so I’m 17 years old and I’m pretty nearsighted, I wear -3.25 contacts. I’m already noticing my distance vision is starting to get worse, but I dont want my prescription to keep getting stronger. I’m noticing that my eyesight is better some days than others–sometimes it’s spot-on (with contacts) and sometimes it’s a little blurry. Is there anything I should do to keep my eyes on the right track, like foods with good eye nutrition or eye exercises I should do? Should I wear glasses and only wear them for distance things but not reading/computer…my eyes are at the point where I have to kinda lean in to see the computer uncorrected/hold the book pretty close to my face…is it better to do those things with or without correction. Thanks so much for any advice!

admin answers:

In school wear glasses. Take your glasses off for reading. See an optometrist.

Mark asks…

drifting eye, got exerices but any others i can try?

Hey well first off, i have perfect vision, i can read signs that my other mates (who have normal vision) cannot and ive had my eyes tested etc, but well i went to have my eyes tested because i was having alot of headaches while at the computer, the optician assured me that my sight was perfect but my left eye had become some what lazy, and drifted off while i was trying to focus in on something, this made sense to me as my computer screen was always at the right side of my body and im on the computer from morning till night as i study and work with computers.

anyways his given me some exercises but their not giving me much help, and lately ive been trying the old fashioned way off covering up my good eye and spending the day only using my lazy eye, but is their anything else i can try?? thanks.

btw i have an appointment with opticians again for a check up in november so want to try and correct it by then. cheers.

admin answers:

Now it depends on what is causing the eye to drift – as you say – and your age – but chances are it can be corrected with glasses using prism, which forces the eyes to focus.

You need to go to an Optometrist – an optician cannot diagnose the problem properly. If there is more to be done, then they can refer you to an ophthalmologist.

Hope this helps.

John asks…

Blackout in vision after exercise?!?!?

Today in conditioning (weight lifting class) we worked out for the first time this semester in the weight room. It was the first time ive worked out in awhile but it wasn’t overly hard or anything. Anyways after the workout when i was standing up my stomach started feeling weird and i suddenly felt hot and cold at the same time. since i couldnt sit down(one of the rules while in the weight room) i started feeling unbalanced and i felt like i couldn’t move along with the other symptomes. It was after this when a ring of black appeared around my eyes and it eventually spread until i couldnt see at all. During this time i could still hear perfectly clear and felt everything fine but i just couldnt see and i felt extreamly dizzy by this point. When i was finally guided to a bench by a friend my vision started clearing up again but i still didnt feel right for about another 10 minutes. Im a sophmore in high school and play a couple sports and i’ve never had this happen to me before and im actually pretty skinny and in good shape so i have no idea why this happened. If anyone can help me out with this i’d really appreciate it. Thanks.

admin answers:

Wow um you where probably dehydrated and didnt eat breakfast and your gym coach should let you sit if that happens again tell your coach and sit and drink water or you could really injure yourself. This has happened to me before but it was combined with vertigo (feels like your spinning) i was in the shower post workout i slipped and could have really gotten hurt.
