Exercises for the Eye: The Complete Exercise Regimen For Improving Your Eyesight

Article by C Oh

If you had to rely on glasses or contact lenses for a long time now and finally thought you had it enough, or your eyesight has gotten bad recently, or one of your parents, kids or other family members is suffering from eye problems, is there any other option than laser eye surgeries? While these surgeries were a major and recent breakthrough in ophthalmology and worked for thousands of people, a large number of people are still averse to these because they think it’s too expensive, dangerous, and full of potential side effects. The good news is that there is another option. It doesn’t take much money or involve high risks, but only your desire to recover and only 15 to 20 minutes of your time per day. In this article, you will be presented with a complete eye exercise regimen will keep you on track towards steady eyesight recovery and even your natural 20/20 vision.

The premise of eye exercises is that adjustments for seeing are made by eye muscles (4 rectus, 2 oblique), and just like any other muscles, these can be strengthened by exercise and thus strengthening the eyesight. One of the reasons why these eye exercises are effective is that the biggest cause for eye problems is fixing your gaze at a single point for a long time. By moving your eyes around, you simultaneously strengthen your muscles and prevent further development of eye problems.

When doing these exercises, sit or stand erect and fix your head in that position. You will only be moving your eyeball. Look at the wall for your reference when indoors, and use an object at a fixed distance outdoors. Imagine there’s a clock in front of you, and this will be the reference point for the position of your eyeball for rest of this regimen.

* Warmup – move your eyes in the following manner.

1. Up-down (12 o’clock – blink – 6 o’clock – blink) x 2 2. Left-right (9 – blink – 3 – blink) x 2 3. Diagonal (11 – 5 – 1 – 7, blink in between) x 2 4. Rotate (starting from 6 o’clock, 2 x counterclockwise then 2 x clockwise, blink after each round)

* Main exercise

1. Up-down (12 – 6), 8 times without blinking 2. Down-up (6 – 12), 8 times without blinking 3. After every 8 reps, place your eye at the center and blink. 4. Repeat #1 and #2 for 2-4 sets. 5. Left-right (9 – 3, 3 – 9, same as #1-4 above) 6. Diagonal (11 – 5, 5 – 11, same as #1-4 above) 7. Diagonal (1 – 7, 7 – 1, same as #1-4 above) 8. Rotate (6 – 12 – 6, 12 – 6 – 12, alternate the two. After 4 sets of 8 reps (4 reps each), blink and switch between CW and CCW)

* Light-and-dark training

1. Cover your eyes with your palms. 2. Remove the cover as if your hands are a set of doors that opens outwards. 3. Alternate #1 and #2 for 10 seconds. – This training relaxes the eyes and trains the iris which controls the amount of light that comes into the eyes.

* Closing exercise

1. Close your eyes for 3 seconds, then open for 1 seconds. Repeat this 4 times. 2. When shutting your eyes, contract your facial muscles as much as you can so that you can feel the pressure in your eyes. 3. Warm your hands by rubbing palm against palm, then cover your eyes with them.

Lizzie asks…

What can i do to improve my eyesight in the quickest way?

i just went to get a eye check and my doc told me i had nearsightedness of 275 on both eyes. i dun wanna wear glasses, what can i do to get better eyesight in the quickest way other than surgery. i wanna do it naturally. currently, im doing a lot of eye exercises and not wearing my prescribed glasses cause i think that will just make my eyes worse. is it because i use the computer too long. i don’t want contacts either. if you guys have any personal experience with this stuff please tell me! thx in advance to those who wanna answer
i no there are a lot of scam out there claiming they work. im using bates eye exercising methods i just absolutely hate glasses and contacts

admin answers:

Yeah – well you and about 50% of the population don’t want to wear glasses and want an easy fix. That’s why there are lots of scams out there.

Be very skeptical of any claims that eyesight can be improved naturally or by special exercises.

From quackwatch.com:
“…no type of eye exercise can improve a refractive error or cure any ailment within the eyeball or in any remote part of the body. If you are considering a vision training program, request a written report detailing the problem, the proposed treatment plan, an estimate of the time and costs involved, and the prognosis. If the plan is not targeted toward a specific visual problem (such as amblyopia), or if it includes a broad promise such as improving I.Q., forget about it.”

http://www.quackwatch.com/01QuackeryRelatedTopics/eyequack.html

Spectacles or contacts are ok – they are based on 100% natural ingredients! You’ll get used to them.

James asks…

so is here any way that i can improve my eye sight naturally?
i get the biggest headache ever after that class !!

admin answers:

Jay, I am truly sorry to hear that your teacher would not accommodate you by moving you closer to the front. That is quite mean of her.

About improving your vision, I’m afraid there is really no proven way to accomplish this. I would however, suggest that one of your parents write the school a note explaining your situation and hopefully, the teacher will move you.

I’m really sorry I couldn’t be of any help.

Robert asks…

Can you improve your vision naturally?

In my experience, my eyesight used to be sort of bad, there were certain things I couldn’t see from a distance. I decided to eat even more healthy and do eye exercises. In about lets say a couple of months my eyes got slightly better. Things got a bit clearer, I started to see some differences.

I heard a person once had bad eyesight and went to 20 20. And I heard another one went in a range from -3.75 to -1.25 over doing some eye exercises.

A lot of opticians say once you get them bad, you can’t get them back. But a lot of people have improved theirs. So is there a possible way you can get it back to 20 20 or close? Naturally?

admin answers:

It may be possible to get 20/20. But it does require a few little things to be right. There are bad vision habits to get rid off. (staring being the major one). Relaxing in the head and not allowing bad attitudes to take over are other areas to consider. I find looking down on other people to make sense of a situation makes eyesight worse. It’s also a bad idea going around with an arrogant attitude that you know the right way to do things and your approach is always perfect. That’s a sign of a person unable to look at his own errors/mistakes and is generally being ignorant.

The other issue is how bad is your prescription. You might be dealing with having an eyeball that has elongated which means there’s nothing you can do to get closer to 20/20. I tried myself to use reading glasses to help encourage the eyeball to regain a sphere shape. I haven’t been able to check what shape my eyeball is now but it definitely makes a noticeable difference to the vision after wearing the glasses for a few hours.

I’m.willing to accept that some people did officially manage to reach 20/20. (like the author of ‘secret of perfect vision’) but it seems a period of 10 years would be a more realistic length of time for the eyeball adjustment to be finalized. I find it easy to wear plus power contact lenses everyday but I do feel while wearing them that i become very withdrawn with occasional oddness in my behaviour. I definitely would say I act like a completely different person with the lenses. This is probably very confusing for friends and family.

Regarding your question about opticians saying eyesight never gets better. They would be lying if they suggest EVERY person that undertakes an eyetest with them ALWAYS get a result of worse vision. If there is an explanation why this fact should be ignored then let them explain why.
People online in this site have said it happened to them. You may know friends or family who had this experience or most crucially you yourself have your own evidence in the form of your prescription.

So this stand off between two sides must indicate someone is being ignorant of the truth.

In my opinion if someone is talking about a subject and can be completely independent in their opinion then their answer is more likely to be a genuine one. If someone relies on money coming into their bank account from the sale of a product/service then that persons opinion is likely to have been compromised.

I would also like to say that it makes it harder to quit a habit when living with someone who continues with it at the same time. It applies to many things such as smoking, alcohol etc. While at first it may seem easiest for the person quitting because they face the rewards of their hard work. If the other person chooses to look down on you for your decisions it can change to a situation where they are making life harder for you. Also they might choose to make you feel like an idiot for what you’re doing (if they don’t agree with it) And in a way (in the example.of wearing glasses) they know there is no doubt about them ever having to struggle. Wearing glasses can appear a very easy option (because for them having bad eyesight comes easily.)

Ruth asks…

Improving eyesight naturally? Real or Fake?

We are at an age where nearsightedness is found in the majority of people. And the only ways people know of dealing with this is to either get glasses, contacts, or Lasik. Anyways I have been dating a guy for a couple of weeks now and we have been getting to know each other and I noticed that he has better eyesight than me and I wear glasses. I asked him how he had good eyesight to read small print from far away and he said he was once nearsighted and ten years ago he started doing eye exercises and watching what he eats and his vision improved overtime. He says that the only problem is that it takes time and a lot of patience andyou need to do the exercises frequently and you will not notice the change right away. So why isn”t eye exercises recommended by doctors? Are they afraid of losing business by not selling glasses or is this fake? If it is fake then how come it worked for my boyfriend? I don’t know who to believe since there are some internet forums I checked out where people claim eye exercises work and there’s others who say it doesn’t. What do you think is the truth?

admin answers:

Some people’s vision does just improve on it’s own. Both of my sons did. They didn’t do anything though … It just happened.

Carol asks…

eyesight?plz help?

i just found out that i need to wear glasses. my vision is -0.75 and -1. is that bad? and is there a way i can improve my eyesight naturally? should i wear glasses all the time or only when i need to?also i have headaches. what should i do?

admin answers:

-1.00 is pretty mild on the myopia scale. Most people this low should still be able to pass their drivers test.

Eyesight can improve and return to natural. We interfere with our natural perfect vision by trying to see a certain way. Squinting, Straining, Staring, and Diffusing, squeezes our eyes out of shape and gives us blurry vision. We can return our vision to normal by stopping the incorrect vision habits and relerning the correct vision behaviors. Look for Natural Eyesight Improvement and The Bates Method. Avoid anything that talks about eye exercises(eye pushups, eye aerobics, eye yoga) Many people believe that the Bates Method is about eye exercises but they are incorrect. Eye exercises do not address the real issues of blurry vision and neither do artificial corrections for that matter.

People should only wear their eye glasses prescribed for their blurry vision and only when they need to see clearly. No one should ever Squint, Strain, Diffuse, or Stare.

Joseph asks…

I am gonna go blind!! Please help me!!!?

I am near sighted and already have a point of 5.5. Please help me! Are there any ways to improve my eyesight naturally? I am too young to get a laser operation. By the way, does anyone know what point contacts will work to; is there a point where contacts will not work? I need help please!

admin answers:

Baby girl, you ain’t gonna go blind, who told you that lie?! First of all, stressing out like that isn’t good for ANY part of your body. For serious! Just relax a little bit, I know you’re going to be okay.
Second of all, you should know that 5.5 isn’t the end of the world. If you’re too young for a laser operation then you must be in your teens. When I was your age, I had a similar prescription, maybe mines was like 5.0 back then. But still. I’m -6.5 now and in my 20′s. It WILL get worse but not that much worse though. You definitely wont go blind from your bad prescription. I would say contacts probably do go to about -10 or -12 or maybe even to -14, but I’m not totally sure.
And the best advice any of us can give you is to DEFINITELY go talk to your doctor. Hearing advice from a trusted professional will obviously make you feel safer, right? And eye doctor trips are fairly cheap and easy to do so you shouldn’t have a problem talking to a real doctor instead of us.
However, I do know some things you can do to improve your eyesight, or at least stop it from getting worse, but you have to be dedicated (and that can be hard as a teenager to stick with things like these but it’s up to you).
You could take the pills. There are pills designed to keep your eyes from getting worse. I was taking this one for a while, it’s called Bausch and Lomb Ocuvite PreserVision. You have to take like four pills a day, and they’re HUGE pills. But the pills have things like Vitamin A (beta carotene), Vitamin C (absorbic acid), Vitamin E, Zinc, and Copper. Actually, those are the only ingredients. So maybe if you just ate foods that had high levels of those vitamins, like carrots.
Also, taking your contacts out at night EVERY NIGHT and using Clear Care Lens Solution is a good idea. You have to make sure you don’t do any damage to your eyes that will prevent you from getting Lasik in the future.
Also, there’s the See Clearly method. They are eye exercises. I know a girl that did them and she had really good results but her prescription was very low to begin with so I don’t know how well that will work for people with higher prescriptions.
The main thing I can tell you is to please don’t stress (that makes it worse!) and to see your doctor! I gauruntee you’ll be okay.

Have you looked for a way to get better vision without glasses, and have you been looking for natural ways to improve vision? Most people are completely unaware of how to improve eyesight without relying on the traditional methods. Poor eyesight can come from bad vision habits, like staring and straining to see.

Continuing to increase the strength of your prescription will never rebuild your vision; its just a stronger crutch

The immediate question which will come to mind for most people is, “Is a natural program for better vision going to require a significant investment of time or moneyThe answer is; No, it doesn’t.
