Thomas asks…

is lasik treatment better or shud i start doing eye exercises to reduce eyesight?

my eyesight is -2 and -4 thought of going for lasik but recently heard of eye exercises so wanted to know which is better

admin answers:

Lasik eye surgery is the big and new thing to do, but no one knows the long term 15-20 year effect as of yet. I am gonna wait till they have done more studies.

Linda asks…

Can I overcome reading glasses through eye exercises?

What exercises would those be?

admin answers:

Very few people (including eye doctors) know enough about this to answer the question intelligently. For examply, Pennybar, is confused. It is true that there is no evidence that eye exercises will help acuity. But that’s not what you asked. You asked whether eye exercises can improve your ability to be less dependent upon reading glasses. This question is related to vision FUNCTION not VISUAL ACUITY. There is MUCH evidence to support the idea that it is possible for people to train their visual systems to FUNCTION better (improve their ability to adjust the focus of the eyes) It is much like the idea of a weight lifter who is very strong. There is nothing wrong with him physically. But he can’t turn a flip like a gymnast. This is like saying my eyes see clearly. There is nothing wrong with them. But then why do I have trouble focusing my eyes well when I read?

Now let’s return to the analogy of the weight lift. Now ask the weight lifter to stand flat footed and jump up and turn a flip. He may look at you and say, “Sorry, I can’t do what you’ve just asked me to do. I don’t know how. No one has ever trained me to use my muscles in that manner.” Same thing some times happens with the eyes. There may not be anything wrong with the eyes but the individual doesn’t have the skills necessary to focus them correctly. But just like a weight lifter can be trained to turn a flip, an individual can be trained to focus the eyes effeciently. That’s what eye exercises do. They teach a person strugggling with their ability to focus how to focus correctly. This can in turn decrease their dependence on reading glasses.

As to what exercises to do? You need to go see an optometrist who is trained in vision development. Google College of Optometrists in Vision Development.

How Do Eye Exercises Work To Improve Vision?

One of the main reasons people don’t do eye exercises is because they don’t understand how they work to improve your vision. Your eyes are muscles just like any other muscle in your body. Therefore, they need adequate exercise. By performing eye exercises to improve vision, you can keep your eyes in good healthy shape and functioning properly. For example, just as a weight lifter needs to lift weights every day to make his arm muscles stronger, a person who wishes to improve their eye muscles must also perform eye exercises on a routine basis.

Have you ever woken up in the morning to a sore and stiff neck? It was most likely due to the fact that you slept with your head in only on position throughout the night and barely moved it. Well your eyes are the same way. If you leave your eyes in the same position for an extended period of time, they will become stiff, sore, and weak as well. For example, if you do a lot of close-up work where you are focusing your eyes close up for an extended period of time, i.e. doing computer work, your eyes will become so adjusted to the close up work that they will become stiff and “forget” how to focus on things far away. However, by doing exercises to improve vision, you can keep your eye muscles loose, fresh, and ready to focus.

Here’s a good one you can try right now. This exercise is called eye circles. Sit in a comfortable chair. Look forward, nice and relaxed. Now look up, and slowly rotate your eyes clockwise all the way around 5 times. Relax, and repeat going in the opposite direction. This will help keep the extraocular muscles (those that control movement of the eye) loose.
