Thomas asks…

How do you improve your vision naturally if you’re nearsighted?

I wear glasses and I would like to get rid of them.
Please don’t say get contacts or night contacts because they don’t really solve the problem; they just help the symptoms temporarily.
Please don’t say laser either because I’m too young for it, it’s too expensive, and I don’t want to risk any complications.
And I know there are a lot of places that claim to help your eyesight and they have a lot of testimonials, but they are all scams.
Do eye exercises actually work? If they do, can someone explain how to do them?
I know that carrots help improve your night vision, but do they help nearsightedness too?
Please only say something if it has been scientifically proven to work. Thanks.

admin answers:

As much as I wish I could say otherwise, glasses, contacts, or surgery are the only way to improve your eyesight.
I’ve been looking for other options for almost 20 years since I first had to get glasses and I have found things that improve the health of your eyes (which can help them from getting worse), but they can’t make the actual visual acuity better. Most of them are natural herbs (like Lutein, Bilberry, and Eyebright) and vitamins (A and E among others) that help maintain the health of the eye, but unfortunately couldn’t improve vision.
The main reason is because vision problems are a physical problem (the physical distance between the retina and lens), not a chemical problem that can be changed with drugs, herbs, or supplements :-(

I’ve heard of eye exercises that some people try, but based on a lot of research I’ve done on them, there is no basis to say that it will improve your eyesight at all long-term. All that’s left after all that is surgery or glasses/contacts. Sorry.
Also, there is an article at http://abcnews.go.com/Health/EyeHealthNews/11-eye-myths-debunked/Story?id=8919023 that points out some of the common myths about eyes. Some of these are included in there, but it also verifies that reading in the dark or watching a TV/computer screen too close doesn’t negatively affect the vision long-term. Good luck and I hope I helped!

You can’t actually improve your vision but you can certainly improve your eye health and slow down the deterioration process with foods such as carrots, blueberries and bilberries.

Your Questions About Eye Exercises For Better Vision

Paul asks…

Eye exercises??!!! please help!!!thanks!?

Ok, So I have been doing eye exercises for 2 weeks now. I have 20/30 vision but I don’t wear glasses. When I go to school I notice that once in a while when I blink my eyesight is better then it goes back to normal (bad) eyesight when I blink again. It keeps happening more and more ever since I started the eye exercises. Do you think that is how vision improves? with exersises?

admin answers:

Get to know them better. This is not a task only to be accomplished through dating. The more you get to know him or her, the more you can tell if you like them as a friend or something else. Just talk and do fun activities with the person.
Stop and consider why you like the person. There are many physically attractive and smart people out there. But if you see something beyond that really catches your attention, you’ve marked this person as unique and probably like them. Why else would they stand out from so many?
Consider how many times you think about the person. If you find yourself thinking about this person several times a day, and they are happy thoughts that possibly make your heart beat faster, then you probably like them.
Think how often you laugh at their jokes etc. When you like someone, you will find yourself laughing at things even if they aren’t that funny. This is a natural attempt to make them feel appreciated.
If the one conversation between you and the person is stuck in you head and you cant stop telling people about it. This means it was important to you, and you probably like the person.
Consider how much you try to be near them. If you’ve planned your walking speed to catch a glimpse of them as many times of the day as possible, there is a good reason for that.
Think about how you feel if you touch him or her, by accident or on purpose. If you’re still thinking about brushing shoulders several hours ago in school, then that is a special thought and you probably like them.
If you feel you’re ready for a relationship, and are confident enough for a positive response, then just go ahead and ask them out. If you’re unsure of their feelings for you, there are several wikihows on how to tell if someone likes you.

Nancy asks…

Improving eye vision?

I wear reading glasses (forgot my prescription/number) and lately my eyesight have been getting worse.
I’m planning on cutting back on computer time and taking more breaks.
So here’s my plan:
45 minutes of computer (this includes breaks such as getting a drink/food and bathroom – I watch a bit of movies on here to kill time that’s why I’m on the computer for so long. Either that or I’m chatting with someone)
45 minutes of exercise on treadmill – as a break from computer
30-45 minutes of computer/tv/games
30-45 minutes break – practice piano or play basketball or something
and so on

Is that a good plan? If not, what’s a better idea?

Also, are there any natural ways I can improve my eyesight? I’ve learned that carrots only improves your night vision not your every day vision. So any exercises or something I can do and for how long & I’m pretty sure I already know the answer but should I do it with or without reading glasses? – Just making sure I’m right.
How long will it take to see results?

admin answers:

Could you please tell us more abut your vision problem ? “Reading glasses” doesn’t mean much, it’s even confusing because that’s the kind of glasses used by presbyopes. You can’t be presbyopic because you’re a teen-ager, while presbyopia is typical of old age. Although its early signs can sometimes be detected in people who are still relatively young (40s),it’s absolutely impossible to be presbyopic at 15.

Lizzie asks…

Is there any way to improve your vision naturally?

i’ve seen programs where you pay somebody a bunch of money for like a book and at the eye doctor they said if i paid extra to get eye exercises they would help my eyes work a lot better. i just have a lot of trouble with glasses and contacts and can hardly afford to get contacts so there’s no way i can get lasik. allergies are making my contacts really annoying and glasses are even worse because i need them bent but don’t know where to go.

admin answers:

Hi.

There are a lot of scams or semi true books and stuff online.

I can try and give you some but I need some more information about your eyesight and overall health.
Can you send me some more info to: Eli.goptics@gmail.com.

I will try to help.

Best regards.
Eli.

Chris asks…

Is it possible to improve vision using pin-hole glasses/Bates method?

I’m thinking of trying to improve my vision naturally as I don’t really like glasses or the problem getting worse (since 2003 my right eye has been shortsighted and now has 20/200 vision). My left eye has normal 20/20 vision- because of this I can function entirely without lenses but my right eye can be annoying at times as the vision is not as good as it should be (I’m even cutting my fringe because of it!). I’m not keen on glasses because I get self conscious easily and I don’t like being seen in them. I’ve also heard of people improving their eyesight naturally and I’m interested to know what sort of exercises I should do help the problem.

ps- as I’m only shortsighted in one eye should I use a patch to help improve the bad one? I’m also 20 years old.

admin answers:

There is little hope that you can Improve your vision using the Bates method.
I asked my Optometrist uncle about this before i started Optometry school in 1960.
He said Bates was discredited in the 1920s. It’s amazing that it is still touted by some.
There are certain exercises and procedures that can be helpful when suggested by a doctor, but none of them is designed to eliminate myopia.

Pinhole glasses are great, but very few actually wear them. Let me ask you a question. Have you ever seen anybody wearing pin hole glasses?

Carol asks…

Do eye exercises work? if so, what can I do extra* that will add to the effect?

I’m trying to get my eyesight a little better, because at this point in time my right eye has -10.50 diopters of myopia, and I need to get it down to at LEAST -8.0diopters.

I’m trying to meet the eye standards to join the air force, and am desperately trying to improve eyesight naturally (they wont take you if you get surgery done…)

Thanks, in advance.
I read online about Euphrasia, and am going to also try that as well.

admin answers:

You didn’t give your age, but since you already have a high degree of myopia it indicates you must have a strong pull in that direction. This means your myopia will probably increase on it’s own until you get into your mid to late 20′s. Hopefully it will then stabilize and not get any worse.

One option you might have to reduce your myopia is orthokeratology hard gas permeable contact lenses, but you should first inquire of the air force to see if this technique will be approved and accepted by them.

Nancy asks…

Which book is better? What’s good about it?

I’ve been looking at a few reviews and these 2 books came up. I’m considering buying one but I’m not sure which one….Please only answer if you have tried / know someone who has tried these books.

Relearning to See: Improve Your Eyesight Naturally!
The Secret of Perfect Vision: How You Can Prevent and Reverse Nearsightedness

admin answers:

Get which ever one is the cheapest. Since there is no real evidence any of those “eye exercise” schemes actually work, you will be wasting the least amount of your money.

These schemes are far better at reducing the thickness of your wallet than the thickness of your glasses!

If you really want to try it, convince a friend to get the book, then borrow it from them!

James asks…

How to improve eyesight?

I have poor eyesight and I would like to improve it. It was fine when I got my license 2 years ago but now I see blury. I once almost ran over a kid in his bike as I was driving home from work but I just slammed on the break and clutch and I would have hit him by a couple of inches.. I don’t wanna go to the eye doctor to have to pay for glasses. Is there a way to improve it naturally? Otherwise I could soon get into an accident. I am poor and can barely pay the bills and food so I can’t afford glasses.

admin answers:

No – all the “natural” methods have been shown to be failures in objective tests – even when the subjects insist they see better.
If you can’t afford to pay for an eye exam (about $35) look for a place that offers free eye exams (often deducting the cost from the glasses) and buy small lens (big ones cost more) and plain frames. If you can’t afford that, then call your county health office (or equivalent) and ask about programs to provide free glasses.
The cost of killing someone is a lot higher than glasses If you can’t afford them, stop driving.

Steven asks…

Improving Eyesight?

My eyes are really quite bad. I haven’t been to the opticians for quite a while but I am quite sure myself that they are certainly not as good as they should be. People see things that I can’t.
I can read books no problem – it’s long distance I can’t read.

So I was wondering. There is of course ways of stopping your eyesight getting worse. Not watching as much TV/Computer etc but are there actually ways of improving your eyesight?
I really do not fancy glasses. (If anyone watches Lost, I’m a bit like John Locke and wheelchairs).
So other than glasses/contact lenses/laser treatment can I actually improve my eyesight naturally?

admin answers:

There are of course no ways to keep your eyesight from getting worse. Computers and TV can cause eyestrain and fatigue, but they don’t change your cornea, and therefore don’t change your eyesight. Nothing natural (other than your genes) changes your eyesight either. Get some new glasses or contacts, so you can see clearly.

Lisa asks…

how to improve eye power naturally ?

hi im 18 i have eye power of -1.5 at both eyes . is there any natural ways to improve my eyesight. nowadays i have stopped working long hours in front of system i want to get rid of my goggles without lazik surgery and all is there any natural way or ayurvedic treatment ?? please help

admin answers:

Diet for improving eyesight: The diet should include vegetables and fruits that are green, yellow and red. Increasing the consumption of Vitamin A is important for improving eyesight. Also foods such as spinach, milk cream, fresh milk, butter, tomatoes, lettuce, carrots, cabbage, dates, soya beans, blueberries and oranges are the best source of vitamin A.

Exercise for improving your vision:
1.Rub your palms together and lay them lightly on the eyes. The warmth from the palms will sooth the nerves and increase blood circulation.
2.Eye stretching exercise – Close both eyes shut and then open them suddenly.
3.Close your eyes and circulate them in all directions. Do this slowly but steadily. Concentrate on one eye at a time.
4.Sun bathing is good for your eyes. Don’t try to look at the sun directly. Exercise your eyes by looking both sides, up and down trying to allow as maximum sunlight.

William asks…

Is there actually a way to improve eyesight naturally?

I don’t want to wear glasses and so i would like to know a way to improve my eyesight
i found this, would it work
http://www.eruptingmind.com/tips-to-improve-eyesight/

admin answers:

No eating carrots does not improve eyesight.. It has never been proven to do this. There’s no natural was to improve your eyesight. Maybe slightly, but you wont notice much of a difference. If you don’t want to get glasses, wear contacts. I wear both, because when wearing contacts you have to let your eyes rest for a few days. If not, then i guess you just wont be able to see correctly.
