How should I eat in order to improve eyesight?
I have been struggling with myopia (nearsightedness) and have tried doing eye exercises that are supposedly are able to help with my problem, but I have been doing them for a year now and seen very little results. My diet consists of whole grain pasta, fruits, vegetables, and occasional lean meat and dairy sources for protein like fat free cottage cheese and lean turkey breast and egg white. The problem is, I don’t know how much of each vitamin to consume to help my eyesight, considering I am an athlete on a 4,000 calorie diet. I have been wearing glasses and contacts for 7 years and want to make a change, and I am willing to be patient and consistent. Thankyou for any response that may offer help to me.
Daily requirement (DR) in adult: 3000 to 4000 IU.
Rich sources: All vegetables, yellow fruits, tomatoes, ghee, butter, milk, yellow of eggs, fish oil.
Essential functions: Growth, health of eyes, health of the skin and mucose membrane.
Deficiency symptoms: Retarded growth, night blindness, susceptibility to infections, changes in skin.
Eye care professionals most commonly correct myopia through the use of corrective lenses, such as glasses or contact lenses. It may also be corrected by refractive surgery, but this does have many risks and side effects.
Practitioners and advocates of alternative therapies often recommend eye exercises and relaxation techniques such as the Bates method. However, the efficacy of these practices is disputed by scientists and eye care practitioners.
vision exercises for mypoia – working for me so far?
I have read a lot of criticism about vision exercises. After reading the positive reviews for this book – Improve Your Vision Without Glasses or Contact Lenses by Steven M. Beresford – on Amazon.com, I decided to give them a try. I only started 3 weeks ago, but I am seeing clearly out of my old contact precription of -6.5 (I had a -7 contact before to help my -7.25 and -7.5 eyes). I am going to try to go down to a -6 soon, with the support of my eye doctor. Myopia is because the eye ball is too big, so how are these exercises working for not only me but for all the people who reviewed the book on Amazon.com? The book does not explain how these exercises work.
Some portion of the myopia is attributed to the long eye, but a good chunk of the myopia is due to other things like tonus and near-point stress. The exercises help to help to alleviate the latter conditions. (Tonus is when the eye muscles become lazy as a result of using glasses all the time…think of it as a stiff muscle trying to focus.)

My first stop would be wikipedia or google for a quick reference. I actually had a similar question not even 5 days ago, but I couldn’t find the answer. If it’s possible, try getting help from someone with more knowledge/experience/expertise, like a professional if it’s possible. This can be pretty important.
I saw a forum with this online, but I didn’t have time to read it all. Try checking it out. I want to help out more, but I’m not 100% sure about the answer. Sorry I’m not much help. I hope you found your answer! Good luck! JS
