is their any therapy for aging eyes…..like an exercise …my vision is deteriorating….?
my optician is no good …he tells me what i want to hear..like eat carrots and juices with high amounts of vitamins c and d.
I have a friend who teaches yoga. She tells me that one of the exercises she has her class do is to have them visually focus on something far away in the room for a few seconds, then focus on something up close. Do this exercise a couple of times; it will strengthen the ocular muscles. Some blurriness is due to the changing shape of the eyeball due to aging and nothing short of surgery or glasses will correct that.
How to improve my crappy eyesight?
I have a vision of 20/100 and I think -3.75. I used to have a vision of 20/60 when I was in 5th grade or something but now I am in 7th grade. The reason why my eyesight worsened was because I didn’t put them on much when I was in 6th grade because I could see a little bit words on the board. I squinted a lot and it made my eye strain. Now I have a performance coming up in about 2-3 months and I do not want to be wearing my glasses when I go on stage, it’ll make me look like a fool. I CANNOT get contacts because my mom does not approve of my getting them. Please help. I hate wearing my glasses and I regret the moments before I got glasses that made my eyesight bad. I don’t want to be as blind as a bat. I’m too young for Lasik surgery and with no doubt I cannot take any pills because my mom will also disapprove of that too. Eye exercises, nutrition, foods, anything that will help? Please. And IF my eyesight does get better, and my vision is to 20/90 or 20/80 and so on. Would I need a new perscription? If i do, I need faster ways to improve my eyesight to about 20/30 please (that’s my goal!) so that I don’t need to pay. My family’s insurance will not be covering anymore please help me. I am 12 by the way.
â™¥~ Thank you ~â™¥
And for you people who think that this is a stupid question and that there is no possible way of enhancing eyesight do not answer. I bet there is a way to all of this.
People who think that this is impossible and that I should get contacts or cannot help me…Why are you even answering this anyway?! Read the stupid paragraphs and look at the spots where I put the DONOTS. OMG!!!!!! If you’re not going to help me don’t bother answering. So far the best answer i’ve got is eat carrots!!!!
To umdbhik (why would somebody have a name like that?)
the reason why people are wearing glasses or contacts is because they could not afford surgery and other certain types of miracles. For me, I am definitely too young to get surgery and now I am trying to improve eyesight. AND YES there can be ways to improve eyesight such as eating good nutrition and eye exercises. IT TAKES TIME. And by the way, why would I do that procedure of yours when leprechauns do not exist, and angels are too high up in Heaven.
You’re just wasting your time in which you will not have much of since I am much younger than you!!
You could try this.
I bought a pair a glasses yesterday because am having trouble now with the computer ( I do not wear glasses nor contacts..no need) and I instantly could read the monitor when I could not anymore (bought cheap glasses at the dollar store). They are supposed to improve your vision and correct your brain/eyes.
I do not know if they would work for you though..actually I do not know if they will work for me long term.
I sure do not want to wear glasses nor contacts at all…so am giving them a try. It is kind of amazing really. Whatever was blurry before became instantly readable. The cons are it is a pain really because you cannot read very fast.
I found them at a health store.
I’m 26 years old and I want to be a special operations combatant.?
- I haven’t ran (jogged, sprinted, etc) in over 6 months.
- I have glasses, although my vision has gotten better within the last 6 months due to an eye-healthy diet and eye exercises.
- I can do 50 pushups in 2 mins and 50 situps in 2 mins.
- I cannot do more than 2 pullups
- I weigh 150lbs.
- I’m a British Citizen living in Canada for the past 16 years. I’ve applied for a PR Card (3 weeks ago) AND Canadian Citizenship (5 years ago).
- I’m gonna walk/run (1 mile) after I post this question.
- I do not have a high school diploma (with absolutely NO intention of getting one), BUT I do have some college (1 successful course completed).
- I’ve never swam before, but to me, it doesn’t look that difficult to master and I’m not afraid of the water.
- I’ve completed 3 solo static-line jumps at 3000 ft, 4 years ago.
- I believe I have an above average IQ, though I’ve never been formally/officially tested.
(1) Is my objective realistic?
(2) Is my objective acheivable within the next 2 years?
(3) Where do I start with regards to physical training? Don’t say Army, I know that and am working on my Citizenship.
(4) What is an equally challenging, equally rewarding, civillian occupation that might serve as an alternative to Special Forces, IF ANY?
Please answer ALL of my questions. Rudeness is not called for and I won’t be phased by it, so please save me the time I would waste reading it.
Just Jeremy is an idiot and a liar .. He was never a Scout Sniper for the Marine Corps and nor was he Recon.. It shows in your “confirmed kill” claims and your verbage, Jeremy. Try being what you were and not what you wanted to be.
I’d discount everything he says.
As to your question, I’m not from Canada but I’ve worked with Canadian Special Operations Forces .. Very professional and top notch individuals.
Keep tabs on the status of your citizenship, you’ll need a clearance for any SOF work and therefore citizenship to the country’s military you’ll be joining.
Your PT scores are not horrible, but they are at the low end of minimum for even regular military. You will need to work very hard in order to improve upon them. Giving yourself 2 years to prepare physically is realistic and more than possible. Focus on all around fitness not just passing PT tests. Ie, work on strength, endurance, stamina … Run for distance not so much for time, esp. Your first year. Start rucking (walking very quick paces with a ruck on your back, no more than 35lbs and NEVER run, it increases your risk of injury) .. This will get your body used to weight on your back, also try to acquire a good pair of boots to do it in.
Lift weights and worth on your strength .. Alternate between heavy weight and short repetitions and light weight, high repititions. This will improve your strength and endurance. Don’t forget your core exercises either, push ups, sit ups, pull ups .. Many of these are simply based on muscle memory so the more you do .. The better you get.
Try to take a land navigation course, this is the biggest killer (knowledge wise) for Special Operations wannabes internationally.
I would recommend getting some type of educational equivilant to a HS Diploma, in the states we have GEDs .. I don’t know what Canada has. Also work on getting more college under your belt, you don’t want to fall short of any educational requirements. In the US, without a HS diploma, your jobs are limited .. I am not sure of the requirements for the Canadian military on that. You will need to check.
You will need to learn to swim and become comfortable in the water, take a swimming course .. Then perhaps take a diving course. These things will help you and raise your confidence level.
There are many rewarding civilian occupations, however, none will offer you the same experiences as life in Special Operations. You could look into becoming a Police Officer, RCMP, or join a SAR organization (Search and Rescue). The last one will offer you A LOT of challenges and while not military, it will keep you pushing yourself constantly.
The key to careers like Special Operations is that you have to be willing to push yourself do to things you may not want to do to achieve your ultimate goal. You have to be able to motivate yourself even when it’s easier to just quit or take the day off. You need to keep focused on your goal and not let anything distract you from it.
I don’t know the requirements to join the Canadian services as I’m from the US .. But the things I’ve told you are all general and common to militaries everywhere. For the specifics on how you can join and what qualifications you need to join, you will need to contact a Canadian military recruiter.
