Your Questions About Naturally Improve Eyesight

David asks…

Improving Eyesight naturally?

I have strong aspirations of becoming a military pilot in a few years and only one thing unsettles me about that. My eyesight isn’t perfect and I wear contacts. I am -1.50 and -1.25 in the other. I have seen many things online about naturally improving eyesight but it all seems bogus. One thing seemed central which was not to wear corrective lenses. Which I haven’t for about a week now, i printed out an eye chart and have measured it for the past week and it has seemed to have gotten slightly better. Whether that is just my eyes natural ups and downs, I don’t know. I was just wondering if anybody has any personal experiences or medical advice to this. Anything helps and is greatly appreciated, and I’ll be flying regardless so don’t go easy.

admin answers:

Most eye problems are because of the shape of the eyeball and there is nothing short of surgery that you can do to fix it.
There will be those who will answer and tell you all kinds of supplements or homeopathic medicine or other stuff to ‘naturally’ cure your eyesite but frankly that is BS. None of that can change the shape of your eyebal.

As opposed to buttsight?

It’s called vision.

Robert asks…

Has anybody ever improved their eyesight naturally?

One of my friends used to wear glasses and he says he doesn’t need them anymore. He doesnt wear contacts and he didn’t get lasik. He says he just started to notice his eyesight get better and now he doesnt use them. So how is this possible. And his myopia was severe too.

admin answers:

I don’t normally like to agree with the skeptics, but as much as I wish I could say otherwise, glasses, contacts, or surgery are the only way to improve your eyesight. I think your friend is either lying (he may have contacts) or it was some weird fluke that he got glasses (which maybe he didn’t need) and his eyes fixed themselves… Although I’ve never heard of that happening unless the person didn’t actually need glasses.

I’ve been looking for other options for over 20 years since I first had to get glasses and I have found things that improve the health of your eyes (which can help them from getting worse), but they can’t make the actual visual acuity better. Most of them are natural herbs (like Lutein, Bilberry, and Eyebright) and vitamins (A and E among others) that help maintain the health of the eye, but unfortunately couldn’t improve vision.
The main reason is because vision problems are a physical problem (the physical distance between the retina and lens), not a chemical problem that can be changed with drugs, herbs, or supplements :-(

I’ve heard of eye exercises that some people try, but based on a lot of research I’ve done on them, there is no basis to say that it will improve your eyesight at all long-term. All that’s left after all that is surgery or glasses/contacts. Sorry.
Also, there is an article at that points out some of the common myths about eyes. Some of these are included in there, but it also verifies that reading in the dark or watching a TV/computer screen too close doesn’t negatively affect the vision long-term. Good luck and I hope I helped!
