With the advent of new scientific imaging of the eyes, it has been found that worsening vision with age usuall occurs due to reversible reasons. It is a wonder why almost everyone accepts wearing glasses as the only solution to poor eyesight, without paying any heed whatsoever to the usefulness of performing regular eye exercises?
I genuinely believe that people are just simply unaware just how their eyes work and how quickly it can respond to a little bit of exercise. The muscles that control and shape the lens in the eye can be worked just like the bicep muscles in your arms. After just a few weeks of consistent use, eye exercises can repair vision completely in forty five percent of individuals with poor eyesight. Another thirty percent will show vast improvement in their vision.
Seeing that the cost of replacing old/or broken glasses or getting a new, stronger prescription is so high, and that glasses don’t enhance your eyes’ natural ability to see it totally makes sense for you to find alternative ways of improving your eyesight. Some opt for surgery (which I do not advise, mostly for cost and safety reasons), while others choose to improve their eyesight naturally.
If you have been accustomed to wearing eyeglasses for a while now, then you’ll be very interested in what I have to say. Your eyes are so versatile that you can reverse the effects that your glasses have had on your vision. Whatever condition you have, your eyesight can most certainly at least be IMPROVED through visual training, if not completely cured. So rather than wearing thick telescopic glasses, you can settle with a thinner, more attractive and cost-effective pair. The exercises can even work on eyesight problems that have been caused by ageing.
I have provided for you below, a specific method you can use that, for many, has produced visible results almost immediately after use:
Learning how to make your eyes ‘loosen up’
As simple as it may sound, simply teaching your eyes to relax can have a major impact on your vision. Your eyes are extremely sensitive to strain especially with our modern common lifestyle of working in front of computers, watching the television and reading books. The muscles in your eyes are different to those in other parts of your body. When your eye muscles become strained, you don’t usually notice it as a pain in or around your eyes, you simply experience it with poor vision.
To get rid of eye strain, you can use a method taught by Dr Bates called ‘palming’. Despite being an incredibly simple technique, palming is easily one of the most effective exercises for improving visual acuity over time. When this exercise is performed consistently for a few weeks the results are often very encouraging.
Below are some guidelines on how to perform the exercise:
Bring your hands in front of your face, in level with your eyes. Cover your eyes with your palms, with your hands cupped so as to avoid pressing down on your eyelids. If you do this sitting down, you may rest your elbows on a flat surface to increase comfort, so you are not straining your arms. With your eyes closed and the light blocked out in this way, you may notice visual effects like colors, dots, sparks etc that disrupt the deep blackness. The more disruptions are available, the more tense your eyes are. As you practise this more and more you’ll notice the improvement in your vision as your eyes learn to relax throughout the entire day, even when you are not doing the exercise.
