Your Questions About Eye Exercises For Myopia

March 17, 2012

Mandy asks…

How can I prepare for an eye exam?

Is there a way to make my eyesight temporarily better or clearer for my next eye exam? I’m thirteen and I have nearsightedness AKA Myopia… Any exercises perhaps?

admin answers:

I am a Natural Eyesight Improvement teacher. I work with an optomotrist that is open to natural ways. He had me teach one of his patients who was measuring 20/40 on the eye chart. Within 10 minutes the young man was reading 20/20, measured by my optomotrist. His father who was listening and doing also noticed an improvement in his sharpness.

Why would you only want to improve your eyesight temporarily? Why not want to get rid of the crutches of glasses and artificial corrections permanently. So many people are giving up to artificial corrections and lowering our nations eyesight on a grand scale.

Kids do need to see the chalkboard and their world fairly clearly. A 20/40 prescription is plenty strong for most things. If one gets glasses they can remove them when they are not needed. Then 20/20 contacts can be used for special occasions like plays. 20/20 prescriptions tend to encourage strain and can lead to stronger blur and stronger prescriptions, so their use should be minimized.

Avoid anything that talks about eye exercises(eye pushups, eye aerobics, eye yoga) they do not deal with the real issues of blurry vision and are often counter to natural eyesight. Also avoid programs that don’t have teachers teaching students face to face. People don’t have a clue about guiding others to Natural Perfect Eyesight without being accountable to real people.

We can return to Natural Perfect Eyesight by upgrading our vision software for these complex times. We need to unlearn the incorrect vision habits, reintegrate the correct vision behaviors, and undo the damage of artificial corrections and blur.

Helen asks…

Blurred vision after studying do I need an eye exam or glasses?

I am in my mid 20s and have recently been studying for professional exams. I have found that at the start of each day my vision has been fine and I have been able to easily read projected slides from medium distances in the classroom but by the middle of the day after regularly combining near work I have found it difficult to see the projected slides which appear increasingly blurry. I have tried to sit marginally closer but the same thing happens, it is very frustrating not being able to see clearly.

I went to an optician a few years ago about a silmilar problem where I could not see slides from near the back of the classroom and was told my vision was fine and that it was not uncommon when studying hard and being tired that distance vision could become blurry, but it would return after rest.

I have been reading up on the problem and I think it is some sort of nearwork induced transient myopia (NITM) also called pseudo myopia, where close work causes the eye to accomodate and get locked into close vision so distance vision become blurry.

I have tried to rest and exercise the eye and they seem fine when away from the classroom, though sometimes blurry with a high correlation to if I have been studying. I am currently away from the classroom and doing much computer work but my eyes do not seem to be suffering too badly but I am worried when I go back to the classroom the problem will return.

I don’t think an eye test or glasses will help as for the majority of the time my eyes are fine and last time I was told that it was normal and my eyesight was good and I should not worry.

Has anyone suffered something similar and is there something that I can do to stop the blurriness at distance.
Thanks for your help. I have heard about this wearing of reading glasses, and understand the logic, though it would be really annoying to have to take them on and off at work.

Do you think I should go for the eye exam while my vision is good or when it is likely to be blurry and explain my problem again to the optician and say I need something done?

I am worried that if I go and they think I am short sighted, either from what I say or the results, they may give me a prescription for it and I will then have to wear glasses for everything including driving which I think you have to do legally even if the prescription is slight. I have heard stories of people becoming dependent and vision getting worse. Is there anyway to make sure this does not happen and I get prescribed glasses for reading (longsight).

admin answers:

Your problem can be easily fixed by using glasses with positive lenses, but just for near work, not when you look in the distance. They are also called reading glasses and although they are often used by older people, they can be extremely useful to young people in order to prevent problems like yours . They do one simple thing: they shift the focus of the light rays which get into your eyes exactly as if you were farther from what you’re looking at. In other words, if you want to prevent your eyesight from deteriorating, you should avoid (or reduce a lot) near work, such as computer, books, and so on. It’s not always possible, especially in your case , but reading glasses can do that for you. When you wear them and look at close things, your eyes have to accommodate much less.
As you said, the cause of pseudo-myopia is over-accommodation, i.e. A prolonged and intense effort made by the eyes to focus close things. The ciliary muscle sometimes reacts to such an effort with a spasm and that’s why your vision gets blurry. If you eliminate over-accommodation your problem will be solved and positive glasses is just what you need.. Since your eyesight is usually good, you can wear at least +1 glasses when doing near work. You could even try +1.50 and see if you can comfortably read a book or a magazine without staying too close. They are sold in drugstores and you don’t need a prescription.
You’re right, there’s one thing you must NOT do: don’t wear glasses for nearsightedness, that’s the worst thing you can do for your eyesight. They would only worsen your pseudo-myopia because they increase accommodation and it’s very likely that your pseudo-myopia would last much longer and it would probably become permanent. If those glasse are used to look far away they are not that harmful, because the farther you look the less your eyes have to accommodate (unless ,of course, you’re given glasses that are too strong). However from what you said there’s no reason whatsoever for you to wear that kind of glasses.
You may go to an optometrist or ophthalmologist (they’re better than an optician in a case like yours) and tell them about your problem. If they’re reasonable , they would never give you glasses for nearsightedness, even if in that precise moment your vision is not perfect. But if they do, tell them you refuse to use them and explain why.
In any case it’s certainly better to have an eye-exam while your eyesight is good.
If you can find a behavioral optometrist it would be great. He would surely give you reading glasses and could teach you some simple exercises to improve your condition.

Thomas asks…

Improve my eye sight?

I have myopia, near sighted -0.75 R -0.75 L i really want to get rid of this myopia as im only 13. I will consider laser eye surgery in the future but now im under-age and want to improve my eye sight. Can you tell me some exercises for my eyes or things i can do to help it. Many thanks

admin answers:

Given your very young age and your mild myopia, it’s extremely likely that you have just pseudo-myopia, i.e. A spasm of the ciliary muscle, while actual myopia is caused by the abnormal length of the eyeball. Since it’s quite difficult to tell myopia from pseudo-myopia, glasses are always prescribed, but that’s the worst thing to do.

Use your glasses only if and when you really need them but never when you’re doing near work. Whether you have actual myopia or pseudo-myopia you can definitely get rid of your problem by doing the proper exercises and by using your eyesight properly. I find the De Angelis method very useful and I’m having excellent results. The title of his book is “The secret of perfect vision”

Your Questions About Can Eyesight Improve Naturally

Linda asks…

How can i Improve my eyesight naturally?

My vision is 5.0 and im getting sick of contacts and glasses and all of that, My friend told me his grandma had a vision of 5.25 and improved her eyesight naturally without laswer surgery. How is this possible, if so how can i do that and where can i find books on this? PLEASE HELP!

admin answers:

You can try doing exercises to improve your vision. I recently started doing eye exercises to try to improve my vision. I created a blog where I record my progress with the exercises.

My vision is 20/400, which is really poor.

I recently saw some improvement. Other people (who have also experienced improvements) have posted comments about their experiences as well. You can check it out at:

Hope this helps…

Paul asks…

How can i naturally improve my eyesight?

carrots? what?

admin answers:

Bilberry, eyebright, raw sunflower seeds. Ive read letters from people saying how raw sunflower seeds improved this or tht eye problem.

The others are herbs to be taken in a tea. You wiill not be dissapointed!

BTW, the carrot thing is folktale. They manufactured that myth in wartime to fool the germans into thinking we has some kind of advantage over them medically. I wont poopoo them but I havent found them to do anything for night blindness or anything.

PS: Russian eat LOTS of raw sunflower seeds, and ironically, have the best vision per capita……….

Robert asks…

How can I naturally improve my eyesight?

admin answers:

I believe eating carrots is actually an old wives tale started during one of the wars. One of the sides used it to cover up a new technology(radar I think) which was helping them shoot down more planes. They told everybody that their pilots were eating a lot of carrots to hold on to their technological advantage.

Our eyes do change their shape, they are changing all the time to give us clear vision. When we get blurry vision, this is a sign that we are using our eyes, mind, and body together incorrectly. We tend to learn incorrect vision habits during stressful times.

We can improve our vision by upgrading our vision software or unlearning the incorrect vision habits and reintegrating the correct vision behaviors. Our complicated times have interfered with many people’s vision, 60 to 80 percent of Americans have blurry vision.

Drinking plenty of water and minimizing sugar intake is always good.

Reading microprint by dim light and other similar words of caution are also old wives tales. They only harm us if we stare, squint, strain, or do other incorrect vision habits while we do challenging vision activities. Otherwise if we are using our eyes correctly they actually strengthen our visual system.

If you have heard about ‘Eye Exercises’ (eye pushups), let me save you some time and disappointment. Trying to improve your eyesight with eye exercises or eye pushups is like trying to improve your basketball game by just lifting weights and running. In order to improve your game you have to learn the principles of basketball and practice them as you play. Eye exercises don’t work. Most people practice them for twenty minutes and then continue with the incorrect vision habits for the other 23 hours and 40 minutes. Most people get bored and disappointed within a week.

So to improve eyesight look for learning the principles of natural eyesight, and avoid anything that talks about exercising your eyes.

Your Questions About Eye Exercises For Myopia

January 12, 2012

David asks…

Help, question about shortsightedness (myopia) exercises!?

I’m 13 and I’m shortsighted.

I only got shortsighted a few months ago and my degrees is currently – left eye -1.25, right eye -2.00. I used to have pretty good vision until I got normal flu in February. I went to the eye doctor and they said because of my sickness, my eyesight deteriorated. I now have glasses but only wear them when I need to see something like on the whiteboard ect. I try to use them as less as possible.

I really want my eyesight back, I was wondering if there are any exercises I could do to get it back. I mean some exercises that could really help. Even if you think eye exercises don’t work, i would still like to do them, because I know I am at least trying to do something about it.

Please help, I really would like my eyesight back, I am only 13.

Thanks for helping!!

admin answers:

The eye is elongated in people with myopia, you can google, what is myopia?, and get lots of information. Exercises will not change the shape of your eye, anymore than exercises will change the length of your feet. Sometimes a laser is used, or permanently embedded contact lenses. Or sometimes the eye ball is frozen and shaved, this works in people that do not have extreme myopia, but then you will get glare from lights and it will be hard for you to do night time driving. I have never heard of the flu changing the shape of the eyeball. I would see a good Ophthalmologist for the best advice and follow it. There are some attractive glasses made now. Any operation cares risk.

Mandy asks…

URGNT!!!! eye problem?

I want some websites that have free eye exercises for myopia, best answer gets full rating and a thumbs up. one eye is -1.00 and the other is -1.25.
It’s not only the shape of my eye, it’s also the strength.

admin answers:

If you are looking for excercises, thinking it will reverse your myopia…it ain’t gonna happen.

Excercises can’t change the shape of your eye, which is what is causing your myopia to begin with.

Mark asks…

What is your opinion on natural eye care (for example exercises and pinhole glasses) when dealing with myopia?

Serious answers please.

admin answers:

I think eye yoga exercises and its varients tend to stop myopia progressing. If the person is generally happy and has an active lifestyle i think they can go forward and maybe recover some of their orginal level of eyesight.

I think however there are other factors that can effect the positive results of these methods. If that person cannot relax during the day and suffers stress easily then any previous work will be undone. People who are myopic tend to stay indoors more and watch tv so it can become like a lifestyle choice.

I found plus lenses and eye exercises beneficial to the eyesight and psychology. (wearing strong stength plus lenses while appearing to improve eyesight dramatically can however leave me feeling down and irritable (if wearing them all day). Eyesight can actually get worse if its overdone.
Pinhole glasses seem benefical too but they make you feel antisocial when you wear them as you’re hiding your eyes all the time. It will appear to everyone you’re wearing sunglasses even though its dark and rainy outside. Its also easy to think the effect they have will continue as long as you keep weaing the glasses. But if wearing them all day i will probably forget everything and become irritable and fustrated. I remember once losing my temper big time while wearing them. So any relaxing quality they have doesn’t necessarily benefit other people or your actual natural eyesight…
(pinhole glasses actually guarantee good eyesight even if your natural eyesight gets worse (for whatever reason, stress or mood change). So wearing them can be misleading to the wearer

But its good to be informed on what research is out there on the subject. Nobody has genuinely proven that myopia is genetic. If you look online its only mentioned as a guess as to why myopia is becoming more common. Its usually offered as an answer alongside ‘people are now reading too much’ etc.
But this is a worthless and unscientific opinion. There is no point in relying in guesswork. Only scientific studies with real results/conclusions should be trusted

Its also worth noting what effect glasses have on the wearer. I wore today for the first time in months a understrength pair of glasses to correct myopia. I wrote down the changes it had on my psychology:

‘i have become a single minded bastard,
No time for niceness because people around me seem cut off. I dont pick up any signals from other people so there is no time spent considering their positions. I live in my own world. I dont spend any time thinking about anyone other than me. I become obsessed with the current goal inside my head and forcing through the result. (could be a goal of buying a candy bar or using a lift/elevator (small thing but it becomes the big issue in the head)
This makes me appear cut off from people, forceful and impatient

I become overly-conscious of body, without glasses i was able to forget what my body does when i walk (i would just focus on keeping my head still), with glasses on its like my arms and hands are the biggest deal in the world. Ive become concious of my body, not my head.
(i think to myself maybe this is the reason why some girls who wear glasses become EXTREMELY conscious.of their body in a negative way) While walking around my head could be tilting any way whatsoever instead of being steady (which is more natural.)
Also if i come across a member of the opposite sex wearing glasses i notice the difference between the sexes has gone and i could easily be a woman and the woman could easily be me.’

Head is ignored and bobbles around while consciousness of arm and body takes takes presidence

Your Questions About Can Eyesight Improve Naturally

Jenny asks…

Glasses ?! what do you think ?!?

Ok, I felt that my eyesight is deterring and I went to check them, and I was right, the optometrist told me that my eyesight isn’t that bad, and he gave me glasses for reading subtitles on Tv, night driving & for lectures at the university.

here is the deal, I really hate wearing glasses or contact lenses, is there anything I can do to improve my eyesight naturally !!?? …
Maz I think eating carrots doesnt actually help improving ut eyesight ! at least not significantly ! :P

admin answers:

Yep, look up google and type in eye exercises. There’s a swag of them to do. Make sure you have the necessaryy vitamins and minerals [type in on google also. You can get pinhole glasses also that are a sheet of tiny holes [not lenses] they work if its with enough light to see through them.

Daniel asks…

How can eyesight be improved?


admin answers:

Carrots and some eye exercises can help naturally improve vision that is not severely impaired. If your vision is -1.00 or more, or +1.00 or more, the only correction can be achieved with glasses, contacts, CRT, lasik, etc. If you have an astigmatism that’s more than approximately -0.75 along with nearsightedness or farsightedness; well you out of luck in the natural department also. Farsightedness is caused by a shortened eyeball length, nearsightedness is caused by an elongated eyeball, and astigmatism is caused by a “football” shaped cornea. So as you can see, the eyesight largely depends on the shape of the eyeball, and you can’t change the shape with natural remedies.

Helen asks…

short sighted, glasses.?

hi, i’m 13 years old and I got my first pair of glasses yesterday! I am short sighted and I have a agestism (sp?).

My eyes are -1.00 and -1.50 is that bad or good?

I’ve been told I only need to wear them when watching TV and looking at the board in school, will wearing them then improve my natural eyesight because they are not being strained? If not, how can I improve my eyes naturally? Thanks

admin answers:

Your prescription is good because it is quite low. You should only wear your glasses when you need them and remove them when you are doing near work such as reading or computer. Also when you are at the computer you should take regular breaks every 20-30 minutes if you want to avoid eyestrain.
You can try improving your eyes naturally by using pinhole glasses (they are like sunglasses with holes in them) and/or doing eye exercises or the Bates method but you need to be committed and do them for 15-30 minutes daily if you want to see results. They are several eye exercise programs on the net and many people have benefited and have improved vision after doing them.

Your Questions About Ways To Naturally Improve Eyesight

Donald asks…

How to improve eye sight?

Are there any ways to improve eyesight naturally? i mean by eating certain food or doing certain stuff if so please let me know asap. thanks…

admin answers:

I dont really believe there is people say carrots just help you see in the dark i do not believe this ! As your just adjust to the dark any way . The only way would be to wear a pair of glasses or contacts once you have been for an eye test.

Chris asks…

Can eyesight improve naturally?

Ok, so i’m getting mixed signals about this area of discussion. Some people refer to the natural ageing process when they state that eyesight can’t improve. Seeing as i’m 18, i’m clearly not in this situation (hopefully! :D ) . Others have recommended the same old things such as eating carrots/almonds/honey etc, but i’m a little sceptical that eating these alone will improve eyesight. I’m currently a glasses/lens wearer and would like to find a way to restore my vision. From my understanding, glasses and lenses will never fix the problem, it only stops the eyesight from deteriorating any further. So, if I want to restore it then i’ll probably have to remove them…but then what? My vision will only get worse if i do this, so I’m really confused :S

p.s: I don’t want to ask my opticians about this as I reckon that they wouldn’t have been taught about how to restore vision naturally ( seeing as it wouldn’t be good for business!)

admin answers:

Fact: wearing your glasses or lenses makes no difference to your vision (Good or bad), they just mean you can see properly.

Fact: your eyesight may get better or worse over time as the shape of your eyeball alters.

Fact: there is no way to restore vision ‘naturally’ – that’s why the opticians don’t tell you about it, they are qualified science professionals and don’t tell fairy stories. Unlike the one someone has been telling you.

Fiction; there are exercises, foods, pills or quack remedies that can improve your eyesight.

Fact: Laser eye surgery can improve your eyesight but carries risks.


George asks…

Improve eyesight naturally?

I don’t mind wearing glasses so much but I feel bad when I take them off and I can’t see so well.

Do I have to start eating a lot of carrots, are there other food? I know I have to stop going on the computer so much but are there more ways?

admin answers:

Blurry vision comes from using our eyes incorrectly. Eye exercises(eye pushups, eye aerobics, eye yoga) do not change the way we use our eyes, mind, and body togther. People feel different when they do them and after a week they get used to the different feeling but clarity does not change.

Computers and TV can encourage us to use our eyes incorrectly but they do not harm our eyes. We harm our eyes when we stare and diffuse and squint while we are using them. People who have perfect vision or know how to use their eyes correctly can use the computer or tv all they like with out any harm to their visual system.

Carrots will not help vision. Nutrition is important but it will not change the way we useour eyes.

Not wearing glasses is not useful unless you know how to use your eyes, mind, and body together correctly while not wearing them. If people don’t know the incorrect vision habits to avoid and the correct vision habits to relearn and how do this with dynamic relaxation, they’re just seeing blurry, which isn’t fun. It can also lead to squinting and strain trying to see clearly.

People who want to improve their eyesight naturally can start out by getting the best books. I have a link to the best book on Amazon on my website. Finding a good teacher near you can speed things up significantly. I also have a link to several Natural Eyesight Teachers around the world on my website. Successful Natural Eyesight Improvement Teachers don’t teach eye exercises because they don’t improve eyesight.
