Michael asks…

Natural Treatment for Improving Eye sight?

Hi guyz,
Just wanna know about the Natural treatments available for Correcting or Improving vision.I have a slight Astigmatism of less than 1 in both eyes. I am planning to have a career in Armed forces(may be flying). So i want to know about any Natural or Alternative treatment available for Rectifying this condition. I dont want to go for Surgical procedure like LASIK or PRK.Lasik and PRK are not a strict taboo in forces and they can be easiy detectable thru a test. I have heard about Bates method and Exercises, but dont know how much effective they are in correcting Astigmatism. Please advice.
Thanks in advance.

ACCORDING TO THE SECOND SITE LISTED BELOW THESE EXERCISES DO IMPROVE EYESIGHT IN THOSE WITH ASTIGMATISMS………

Exercises for a Better Vision – Palming
Palming

“Palming” was originally a yoga technique. After Bates noticed its beneficial effects on the visual system, he “borrowed” it and incorporated into his system of vision improvement.

Palming works by calming the visual system. Our eyes see by receiving light signals. If there were no light entering the eyes, one should expect to see nothing. Instead, in eyes with defective eyesight, there appears swirling patches of colours, creating pictures where there should be none. This is a symptom of the eyestrain causing defective vision.

The act of palming makes people aware of the strain. The warmth from the hands helps relaxes the tense eyeballs. Some people claim to be able to the “inner energy” or “chi” emanating from the palms. I think we can safely dismiss those claims.

How to do
Place your palms over your closed eyes, letting the fingers cross over at the forehead. Slightly cup your palms such that you are not pressingon the eyeballs. Feel the warmth of the hands radiate and diffuse gently into your eyeballs. Think of the most peaceful scene that you can imagine. Relax…

A few things to note

Do not press against the eyeballs with your palms. This will put pressure on the blood vessels in the eyeballs and reduce circulation of blood and nutrients. Make sure that as much light as possible is blocked out by the palms. The exact position of the palms is up to the individual. Crossing the fingers at the forehead usually helps.

Put yourself in a comfortable and proper posture e.g. Don’t slouch
Remember to keep your eyes closed, behind the palms.
And keep your hands clean, otherwise there will be the attack of the pimples!
The most important thing is to relax. Of course, one can’t try to relax. The harder you try, the more tense you become. The trick is to imagine pleasant scenery such as floating clouds in a blue sky, a peaceful sunrise at the top of the mountains.

I recently started trying eye exercises to help improve my vision. I created a blog so that people can follow my progress

The program I am using is called the Vision for Life Program. Actually, the founder of the program, Orlin Sorensen, was also interested in flying, which is what got him interested in eye exercises.

Nancy Your Questions About Eye Exercises For Astigmatism

Nancy asks…

Unbalance eyesight~! help~!?

My old specs was sph: right -5.50 and left -5.25, worn for 8 years. I always sit in front of the class and didn’t really notice the changes in the power until this beginning of the year. Just recently I got myself a new pair of spectacles with:

Sph: Right -7.00, Left -6.00
Cly: Right and left 0.00
axis: Right and left 0.00

This year i will be turning 21 and I am really afraid of my eyesight deteriorating as i age. My friends told me that I am lucky that I do not have astigmatism which will cause blindness (as they say). However the right eye and left eye have a very large difference which worries me. My optometrist told me not to worry and eat more veggie, and exercise my eyes more by looking at greenery and trees. But still it is very unsettling, what do I do? It seems that i depend on my right eye more than my left~!
thank you for all answers~! ^^

LOL, astigmatism will not cause blindness. Anyway, eyesight naturally deteriorates with age anyway. It might happen more rapidly with bad eyesight, but it WILL slow down and eventually stop until you’re quite old. icon razz Your Questions About Eye Exercises For Astigmatism And yes, you are lucky to not have astigmatism, it’s rather bothersome.
