How to Improve Your Vision without Glasses

Many people that have eye conditions such as myopia, astigmatism or hyperopia that require the use of corrective lens such as eye glasses or contact lenses generally don’t like wearing them.

Further, many people are hesitant to undergo corrective eye surgeries such as Lasik because of the risks involved.

So what other option is there? Well there natural ways to improve your vision and decrease your dependency on glasses.

Here’s what you need to do.

1) Reduce the Effects of Computer Vision Syndrome

Computer Vision Syndrome is defined as the “group of eye and vision problems related to near work that are experienced during or related to computer use”. There are various symptoms such as tired, sore and dry eyes, eye strain, headaches, slowness in changing the focus of your eyes and excessive tearing.

However, there are habits that you can develop in order to reduce the effects of Computer Vision Syndrome.

Create an ergonomic workstation – maintain a viewing distance of 20-28 inches and the center of the computer screen should be 4-9 inches below your eyes, because your eyes work best with a slight downward gaze.

Eliminate glare in your work area – Adjust blinds or curtains to minimize sunlight. Turn down overhead lights so that the brightness of the screen and the surrounding room are balanced. However, do not, however, work in the dark

Take a break – It’s easy to lose track of time at the computer. At the very minimum, take a break at least once an hour for about 10 minutes and blink frequently.

2) Provide Your Eyes with Proper Nutrition

Your diet affects your overall health; and that includes your eyes. Here are some of the specific nutrients that directly affect the health of your eyes.

Vitamin A – I am sure that you’ve heard that carrots are good for your eyes. Ever wondered why? Carrots contain a carotenoid called beta-carotene. Your body converts beta-carotene into vitamin A, which is an anti-oxidant. Antioxidants such as vitamin A are essential to eye health. Vitamin A is known to:

  • Help your eyes adjust to light changes
  • Moisten the eyes, which can enhance visual acuity
  • Prevent the forming of cataracts
  • Help prevent blindness from AMD (Age-Related Macular Degeneration)

Vitamin C and E – these two nutrients also assist in the long term health of your eyes.

Lutein – Studies have shown that Lutein, which is found in foods such as dark green leafy vegetables, eggs, corn and pumpkins, may reduce the risk of AMD as well as it may play a role in helping reduce the risk of cataract extraction.

Water – Drinking water frequently also helps.

Increase the intake of nutrients that promote healthy eyesight… There are actually eye vitamin supplements especially formulated for healthy eyesight.

3) Do Eye Exercises

Eye exercises are exercises that are used to improve your eyesight through conditioning the muscles responsible for clear focus or eye teaming (controlling how you use and aim our eyes together).

There is great debate as to the legitimacy of using eye exercises to improve vision. However, there are numerous references as to the benefits of doing eye exercises and there are several natural vision improvement programs available. Here are some eye exercises to improve vision that you can try.

Keep in mind though that natural vision improvement isn’t easy… But here are some tips to improve your chances of success:

  • You must be patient, disciplined and committed in order for eye exercises to work for you.
  • It’s important to understand that in most cases, the condition of nearsightedness or farsightedness was developed over a period of many years and there it is unfair that substantial improvement through natural means can be gain in a relatively short time-frame.
  • You can’t expect to not do the exercises and yet expect to improve your vision… that’s absurd! You have to do the exercises regularly… preferably at least once per day.
  • You have to wear your glasses as infrequently as possible. This helps you decrease you dependency on your glasses. Many eye exercise programs suggest that you get a pair of glasses with a weaker strength while going through the program.

So if you want to improve your eyesight, but can’t afford eye surgery or are afraid of the possible risk, then natural vision improvement is an alternative to consider. Just remember, you have to be disciplined, patient, avoid poor eye habits and eat the proper nutrients.

Do Eye Exercises Really Work?

Many people that have eye conditions such as myopia, astigmatism or hyperopia, that requires that they wear some sort of corrective lenses such as eye glasses or contact lenses generally don’t like wearing them.

do eye exercises really workNatural Vision Improvement purports that by doing eye exercises you can improve your vision naturally without having to undergo LASIK surgery.

But the question remains in many people’s minds… do eye exercises really work?

Well let’s try and answer that question…

MEDICAL EVIDENCE
Natural vision therapy is recognized by a number of medical associations and institutes including the American Optometric Association, the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences, the U.S. Public Health Service, the National Center for Health Statistics and the Association of Academic Health Centers

For example, the American Optometric Association “affirms its longstanding position that vision therapy is an effective therapeutic modality in the treatment of physiological dysfunctions of the vision system.” – American Optometric Association, 1985.

There have been numerous articles published in optometry related journals such as the American Journal of Optometry & Physiological Optics, that provide a solid base of research supporting vision therapy as an effective treatment for accommodative deficiencies.

NUMEROUS TESTIMONIALS
Many popular eye exercise programs such the Rebuild Your Vision Program, The Janet Goodrich Program for Natural Vision Improvement and the Program for Better Vision have many many testimonials on their websites.

You are encouraged to visit any one of the website of any one of these eye exercise programs and read through the testimonials… real people… real results. there are people of varying backgrounds, lifestyles, geographcial locations and more… that have experienced varying degrees of improvement over varying time frames.

IT’S ALL ABOUT WHAT YOU PUT INTO IT
You must be patient, disciplined and committed in order for eye exercises to work for you.

It’s important to understand that in most cases, the condition of nearsightedness or farsightedness was developed over a period of many years and there it is unfair that substantial improvement through natural means can be gain in a relatively short time-frame.

You can’t expect to not do the exercises and yet expect to improve your vision… that’s obsurd! You have to do the exercises regularly… preferably at least once per day.

You have to eat healthy. Proper nutrition is an integral part of any eye exercise program. It’s important that you get the right vitamins and minerals that are essential to maintaining healthy eyes, such as vitamins A, C and E, and lutein.

These nutrients help your eyes adjust to light changes, moisten the eyes, enhance visual acuity and help prevent the forming of cataracts.

You have to wear your glasses as infrequently as possible. This helps you decrease you dependancy on your glasses. Many eye exercise programs suggest that you get a pair of glasses with a weaker strength while going through the program.

I hope that the above has answered your question about do eye exercises really work. Also, if you do decide to improve your eyesight naturally by doing eye exercises, follow the simple tips above to improve your success.

Janet Goodrich Personal Eyesight Training Kit – Pinhole Glasses

Hey all…

Today I want to continue my in depth description of the Janet Goodrich Personal Eyesight Training Kit… I’m going to talk today, specifically about the pinhole glasses that are included in the kit.

So what are pinhole glasses anyway? – Pinhole glasses are shaped like normal glasses… but instead of glasses lenses, with pinhole glasses, there is black plastic with several tiny “pinholes”.

pinhole glasses

pinhole glasses

Pinholes work by reducing the amount of scattered light and allowing through only parallel beams that fall on the keenest area of sight on the retina.. thereby allowing clearing vision.

As part of any natural vision improvement program, participants are encouraged to get glasses that have a lower prescription than is normal prescribed for them. This can be done through a behavioral optometrist. For those of us who can’t find behavioral optometrist or don’t feel comfortable asking our current optemetrist for glasses with a lower prescription, pinhole glasses are a good alternative.

Pinholes can be used for common activities like reading, watching TV or using the computer use, etc. They should not be used while driving. Note that I used my pinhole glasses while typing part of this post!… So they definitely allow you to see clearer.. but there is some getting to use to.

Hope you found this post informative… Look out for my next post tomorrow

How To Find Behavioral Optometrists

Hello all….

I wanted to share two useful websites with you.This is courtesy the Program For Better Vision.

Firstly, let’s define what a behavioral optometrist is…

A  behavioral optometrist is a doctor who believes that how you see is the result of how you have learned to use your eyes and that visual skills – including how clearly you can see – can be enhanced through exercise, relaxation and training. He/she has received specialized training, can give you a comprehensive examination and can perform all the required tests.

Of course, a behavioral optometrist, like a regular optometrist, can prescribe glasses and contacts. But a behavioral optometrist would be more likely to comply with your request for an undercorrected prescription (a weaker pair of glasses or contacts that allows your eyes to benefit from a natural vision improvement program).

In addition, a behavioral optometrist can provide a program of training that improves overall visual functioning.

Here are two sites which allow you to search and find behavioral optometrist:

College of Optometrists in Vision Development

Optometric Extension Program Foundation

Hope this helps…

Let The Sun Nourish Your Eyes

This is useful tip I got from the Program For Better Vision Newsletter, that I would like to share. It’s about using sunlight to nourish and relax your eyes… Try it!

It’s called The Sun Cycle Exercise and addition to nourishing and relaxing your eyes, it also reduces your sensitivity to light.

Here are the Instructions:

1. Close your eyes and face toward the sun. (If you cannot face the sun with your eyes closed without squinting or tightening your facial muscles, then begin the Sun Cycle by facing slightly away from the sun so that your face and closed eyes can relax. Then, as you become more accustomed to the light, gradually turn closer and closer towards the sun.)

2. Let the sunlight fall on your closed eyes for five seconds.

3. Place your cupped palms over your closed eyes, shutting out all light for five more seconds, then take your hands away, keeping your eyes closed.

4. Repeat steps 1 – 3 ten to twenty times, for a total of three to five minutes.

The Sun Cycle helps to nourish your visual system, exercise the focusing muscles of the eyes and reduce sensitivity to light and glare.

Practice the Sun Cycle regularly. Most people experience a decrease in sensitivity within twenty to thirty days.

And here are some additional tips:

To get the light nourishment that your eyes and body need, spend at least 30 minutes a day outdoors – without glasses or contacts – so that your visual system can receive unfiltered sunlight. Any glass – window glass, car windshield, eyeglasses or contacts – filters part of the full spectrum of light and reduces the beneficial effect that sunlight has on your eyes and body.

We recommend sunglasses only in situations of glare or reflected light (the beach or ski slopes).

Your eyes most fully rest in total darkness. The best way to rest your eyes is to close them and place your cupped palms over your closed eyes. You can palm for as little as 30 – 40 seconds any time that your eyes feel tired or strained. While palming, it is also helpful to visualize a pleasant scene in your mind’s eye.

Practise Focusing

I want to share another experience with you today… actually it just happened about 30 mins ago while I was driving on my way to work.

One of the things that is recommended when someone is trying to improve their eyesight naturally is to practice focusing…. focus on near objects, focus on distant objects, focus, focus.

I have developed the habit of doing just that as well as  doing my eye exercises wherever and whenever

While waiting at a traffic light, I decided to focus on the number plate of the car in front of me… without my glasses. Now, because my eyesight is so terrible, I can’t see the numbers without my glasses. But I decided to try it anyways. To my delight, as I focused more and more, the numbers became clearer and clearer. Though not absolutely clear, I was able to discern the numbers and when I put my glasses back on, I was able to confirm that the numbers were actually what I saw without my glasses.

This is very encouraging for me and I hope that you find it encouraging too.

So remember… focus, focus, focus!

Another Rebuild Your Vision Testimonial

Here is another testimonial from the Rebuild Your Vision Program. This one is from Margot Costenoble of Australia:

“I am 73 years old. I was found to have right eye pressure of 35 on a routine checkup and was sent to specialist. After three months I finally got to see the specialist who confirmed it was glaucoma and the reading was still the same. 27 on the left eye and 35 on the right eye. Then I looked up on the internet and found you and I ordered the Ocu-Plus Formula. In one month’s time my pressure dropped to 20 on left and 22 on right! That is really good.”

I hope you find these testimonials as encouraging as I do…

Another Time for Eye Exercises

In my last post I suggested that eye exercises can be done anywhere, anytime. Today I just wanted to point out another time when I do the eye exercises.

I am trying to improve my overall fitness and as such I try to do exercises regularly. What I also try to do is…. just after I finish my exercises I would a ten minutes or so and do some eye exercises..

So there you have it.. another time to do eye exercises..

Eye Exercises, Anywhere, Anytime

Although I try to do the exercises every morning and every night, I am also trying to make it a habit to do my exercises as often as possible.

As such, I find myself doing the eye exercises, at other times during the day, regardless of where I am… For example:

If I am in traffic, I do some eye exercises… I would look at an object close to me and focus on it for about 2 seconds, then I would look at an object in the distance, and focus on that for about 2 seconds, back and forth…

I also often do what I call “stretching exercises”, where I would look left, right, up, down, etc, etc.

The point is, don’t limit yourself to doing the exercises at regimented times… do them whenever you like. In fact, the truth is, it’s difficult to stick to a scheduled program.

You can use these free eye exercises if you wish.
