Do eye exercises really work?
I am nearsighted. My vision has really gotten bad, but i always belived in eye exercises. When i asked an eye doctor recently, he said not. Is there a limit to how bad your vision can be? Serious answers only please.
Eye exercises – or vision therapy – can be useful for several different types of vision problems. Unfortunately, nearsightedness (myopia) is not one of them. Trust me, if there were exercies that worked, me and my classmates would be doing them!
I would not be too concerned with your eyes getting extremely bad. But if you are, talk to your optometrist about it. Vision usually stabilizes in the twenties until you start to hit presbyopia around the age of forty. And – as a bonus – being nearsighted lets you hit presbyopia (losing the ability to see at near) later in life
Do eye exercises work to improve vision ?
My eye sight is very poor and need to wear toric contact lenses to correct moderate astigmatism and short sightedness. I stumbled accross web sites claiming to be able to improve eye sight with regular eye exercises. Has anyone with the same sort of condition eyes tried this and does it really work to the extent they claim.
Whenever people tell you that eyesight cannot improve permanently, do not believe them. They need to try something first before they say it doesn’t work, otherwise they’re not being truly scientific. Real science means to try something first before determining whether you are sure of something. If you are taught that x implies y in school, and others tell you that x is y because science tells them so, that is NOT being scientific. How do they know for sure x is y unless they try it first? People (including doctors) are merely repeating to you what they’ve been taught to believe, rather than what they’ve tried. This is not true science.
Here is my recommendation, something that I have tried and know really works: the Bates method. It teaches you the correct vision habits used by people with perfect sight. It’s meant to be used 24/7/365. It works much better than eye strengthening exercises that require something like 25 minutes a day and then you go back to your old bad eye habits. It can help you with your astigmatism. More info: http://www.iblindness.org
Many people who do eye strengthening exercises find that they have limited success, and later on say they should’ve gone with the Bates method instead. The Bates method is based on the findings of a doctor who also discovered adrenaline… This man was so smart that he was as high in the optometry world as one could be during his time. He discovered a way to reverse eyesight, but politics and economic forces compelled the board of optometrists at his school to expel him from his teaching position (he taught optometrists) and have him publicly ostracized.
Wait just a minute, why did the method work for me? Why would they work if he was “wrong”? Everything has worked for me exactly as Bates said they would; and I mean every single thing I’ve tried. He is not lying; the fraudulent ODs expelled him for economical reasons – there’s even a 1978 UC-San Diego study that reveals the method eliminated astigmatism and strabismus (cross-eyes) in a few people. It’s known as the McClay dissertion. For a brief synoposis of it, look at http://www.iblindness.org/evidence/
Here is the Bates method in a nutshell: http://www.i-see.org/bates_nutshell.html
Dr. Bates tested thousands of schoolchildren and found that he was able to improve their eyesight back to 20/20 or better.
He understood eyesight better than any eye doctor that has ever existed, believe it or not. He knew how to help people not strain when looking in the distance or up close, and understood the role the mind plays in vision.
I was able to go from 20/100 to 20/13 (verified on Snellen eye chart) in 2 months. You can find out more about the method at http://www.iblindness.org/ … For a book with a lot of good information on how to improve your eyesight using the Bates method, you can purchase this one: http://www.amazon.com/o/ASIN/1556433417/ref=s9_asin_image_1-hf_favarpcbss_2238_g1/104-4012359-0946345?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-1&pf_rd_r=1WC6CEVP6GZHBN3XSNZH&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=279667201&pf_rd_i=507846
Best of luck.
does anyone know of any eye exercises that can correct double vision?
Igot it from a fast I went on I started pukkin up green bile and then had double vision.I really regret it can anyone help me out and teach me some eye exercises that can correct it.
You need to see an optometrist to determine what is causing it, then a proper treatment can be found.
There aren’t any specific exercises that will do any good in all cases.
