People suffering from eye conditions like hyperopia, astigmatism and myopia have to wear corrective lenses or eye glasses for corrective reasons. If you too have an eye problem, you may have heard about eye exercises helping improve vision without glasses. However like many others, you too wonder if eye exercises work to improve vision?
The answer is yes, they do work and rather well. Lots of well researched studies prove it. Moreover, athletes have not only got rid of their contact lenses and glasses but have also noticed marked improvements in their performances. Even armed forces personnel regularly use eye exercises to maintain strong vision.
No overnight miracles
So one wonders if eye exercises are so effective at improving eyesight, why doesn’t everyone do them? Well the main reason may be that the eye care industry is a multi-billion industry where doctors, laser eye surgeons and glasses and contact lens manufacturers make billions of dollars because of eye problems. If everyone were to perform eye exercises and had healthy eyes, this eye industry will end up at a loss.
A second reason is that you have to be patient, disciplined and committed with regular eye exercises for it to work for you. Your eye problem, be it nearsightedness or farsightedness usually develops over a span of years. So you cannot expect natural improvements in your vision in a short time-frame.
Proper nutrition is also important
It is important to do eye exercises at least once a day and eat healthy. Proper nutrition is important in an eye exercise program as the right vitamins and minerals like vitamins A, C and E and lutein help maintain healthy eyes, moisten eyes, enhance visual acuity, adjusts your eyes to light changes and also prevents cataract formation.
Moreover, you cannot immediately discontinue wearing glasses. You have to wear them as infrequently as possible to decrease your dependency on glasses. Many eye exercise programs suggest wearing glasses of a weaker strength while on the program.
How they work
Like any part of your body, you need to regularly perform eye exercises to maintain its good healthy shape and for its proper functioning. If you do lots of close-up work where you have to focus your eyes close-up for long periods of time like while at the computer, your eyes get so adjusted to this close up work that they find it difficult focusing on far away things.
The same thing applies to those who focus on distant objects for long periods. The eye muscles tend to tighten when in stress and strain. Regular and simple eye exercises teach muscles to relax and remain loose, fresh and ready to focus and thus helps correct visual problems.
So in a nutshell, eye exercises do help improve vision, as further explained: www.visionwithoutglassesrevealed.com . However results are not instantaneous, you have to be patient and committed with your exercises to see an improvement.
