Mandy asks…

is their treatment for myopia?

i read somewhere that you can do eye exercises to fix myopia. so i was wondering if anyone out there has done these and saw results, and if so maybe you can give me some pointers and tell me which worked best. please don’t post anything from ehow or a similar website unless its worked for you or others you know. any help to fix this will be very appriciated since i need 20/20 for a job, thank you.
I meant in a natural way not by the obvious artificial helpers like the glasses, contacts, and the lasik surgery.

Glasses, contacts, lasik

Lisa asks…

Eye exercises? Help with vision improvement.?

I have a mild case of myopia, though not on glasses yet. In 6 months I might be…
I want to know about eye exercises. Its not like there’s any risk, right?
I admit, I may seem very, very vain, but I value my senses more then most things, vision, hearing and tactile the absolute most. Personally I think everyone should have perfect senses* but that’s obviously not the case.
I do NOT want LASIK or any other laser eye surgery. Far to risky.
I don’t really care how long the exercises take (though I would like for them to have effects before 6 months).

I would also apreciate knowing HOW they work.

*Blindness is well documented, and so is deafness. Now think of what it would be like if a person could not feel…

No, there is no risk in doing ” eye exercises” , but then again , they aren’t of any help either.

HOW they work can be explained in two words…they don’t.

Most of the ” exercises ” are just repeating the same movements our eyes are doing all day, everyday anyway. What’s an extra 10 minutes of rolling your eyes around going to do. It’s all utter nonsense.

Rolling the eyes sideways , then up and down are only moving the external muscles that control eye movement and have nothing to do with how vision works. Those muscles don’t need exercise, we are moving our eyes all the time.

Then there are others like focusing on a pencil a few inches away from your nose then bringing it closer then farther out several times…what difference is that to the hundreds of times a day our eye accommodate for near vision every time we look at something less than 20 inches away ? Another 10 minutes of forcing accommodation won’t make any difference either.

If exercises actually worked to reverse myopia, there would be new clinics open in every city and town with thousands of people signed up to learn how ,and do it in group sessions….but there aren’t any for obvious reasons.

Sooo, you just have to suck it up and get glasses if it gets to that point, like, millions of others have.

Questions about myopia?

Hi, I developed myopia a couple of months ago and doing research online always tells me different things which is so stupid.

For example some sources say that prolonged near work makes people myopic while others say this hasn’t been proven etc

Can anyone tell me for why I have developed myopia – I know it is caused by an elongated eye or one with a big curvature, but WHY is my eye gone like this? How can I make my eyesight better – and don’t say eye exercises which are total bolonga. Does wearing glasses weaken your eyes?

I developed myopia at 16 by the way, about 5 months ago, and I don’t wear my glasses because I don’t want to look like a big dork.
Hi thanks for you answer Rebecca Its good that I’ve not been wearing my glasses then because you say they make your eyes worse, I haven’t tried eye exercises because I asked my optician when I was first prescribed and she said they didn’t work and also all the eye exercises online you seem to have to pay for is there any way I can get the package free? I doubt my parents would let me pay for something that’s unlikely to work. But I want to try it now because you say it does work.

Crap I didn’t realise you can’t delete the extra details. :/
Hi, thanks for your answer. My eyesight is -1.25 in my left eye and -0.75 in my right, I know these aren’t terrible prescriptions but they still do affect me and make it hard to see the board at school so I’m sitting near the front in most of my glasses so can see it clearly. I don’t wear my glasses right now. Are my eyes gone too bad to be restored? and what do you mean unlearn these incorrect vision habits. What can I do to improve my eyesight? People always seem to say different things even looking at this page the answer above is basically the opposite of what you’re saying. You seem to know what your talking about so please helpppp…

admin answers:

We get blurry vision because we learn incorrect vision habits. We can unlearn these incorrect vision habits and return to natural perfect eyesight.

Eye exercises are very bad. They take people in the wrong direction. They don’t do harm, but they have nothing to do with natural perfect eyesight. Occasionally a person with a mild prescription and not very strong blurry vision habits will learn that they can change they way they use their eyes and improve their eyesight. Our eye muscles don’t act upon anything externally, so they are many times stronger than they need to be and don’t need to be exercised.

Eye exercises prey upon people’s intuition that vision changes and sometimes is better. When most people do eye exercises they don’t get any improvement and they get bored very quickly. Then they assume that their eye doctor was correct and that natural perfect eyesight is not possible. Eye exercises have wasted many people’s time and helped continue the deception that natural perfect eyesight is not possible.

It is important to be able to see the blackboard at school and it is required by law to have 20/40 eyesight for driving, so we don’t want to interfere with this. We can sit closer to the chalkboard and we can take our glasses off when we don’t need them. Its also not fun to have blurrier vision than 20/40 when watching shows or during social activities. 20/40 vision allows us enough space to practice the correct vision habits and get back to 20/20 eyesight, then we can get another reduced 20/40 prescription.

I have had direct experience in trying eye exercises myself and in my field I have come across many others who have wasted their time with them and failed.
