There’s no denying that it is quite a hot topic among people to discuss whether or not eyesight can be restored naturally. By naturally, we mean not using lasers, drugs, contact lenses or glasses.
Correcting eyesight naturally has to do with using eye massage, relaxation techniques and eye exercises regularly. The entire exercise is not unlike physical therapy for the brain and the eyes. Some people swear by this while others are sceptical. Nonetheless, it is safe to say that for some people but not in others, natural eyesight restoration does happen. How do you know which group you belong to? Try out these natural eye restoration techniques and see if they work for you.
When it comes to eye conditions such as astigmatism, far sightedness or nearsightedness, vision therapy can help. The goal of vision therapy is to improve, heal or develop how you see. Many experts believe it might fix insufficient convergence, which is when your eyes have a hard time moving together and focusing on things that are moving nearer to you. Convergence insufficiency can cause problems such as double vision and eye strain.
Perfect Sight without Glasses
Remember the 1920 book Perfect Sight Without Glasses by William Bates MD? The topic discussed was whether the only method of fixing vision was glasses. In the book, the Bates Method is introduced which was a method for people who wanted better vision without having to wear eyeglasses. This method is still utilized to this day. The book also encourages eye exercises to help restore vision naturally.
Manage Eye Strain
Eye muscles, like all the other muscles in your body can feel painful and fatigued when they are strained. Cut back on visual fatigue by practicing the trick called 20-20-20. This involves periods of staring at an object for twenty seconds from twenty feet away. You will feel immediate results.
Ultraviolet light exposure can lead to cataracts and macular degeneration. Find sunglasses that fit comfortably and block out UVB and UVA rays. Every time you go outdoors, remember to wear your sunglasses. You might want to consider glasses that wrap around your head as these block out light from the sides as well.
You can prevent cataracts and late life macular degeneration by quitting smoking. Get help quitting by finding a support group. Find an expert to get your addiction treated.
Promote Eye Health by Eating the Right Food
Of course, diet alone won’t change your vision. However, eating certain food ensures your eyes get all the nutrition they need. Incorporating these food groups into your diet will help restore your vision naturally:
• Vitamin supplements that contains vitamin E, C, zinc, lutein, omega-3 fatty acid and most importantly, vitamin A.
• Juice and citrus fruit such as grapefruit, lime, lemons and oranges
• Omega 3 fatty acids from tuna and salmon
• Leafy greens like spinach, collards, chard and kale.
The Pencil Exercise
Practice refocusing and focusing your eyes by doing the pencil exercise. Draw a dot in the middle of the pencil. As you move the pencil towards you and away from you, focus on the dot. This exercise is believed to correct crossed eyes and double vision. The best part is that it is painless, not to mention free! All you need to do is focus and refocus on the dot.
If you have the patience to follow these guidelines, you may be surprised that indeed, eyesight can be restored naturally.
