Ways To Naturally Improve Your Vision

by Ben Richardson

If you are starting to notice that your eyesight is not as good as it used to be, you may wonder if there are things you can do to help it improve. According to WebMD, there is currently no evidence available that proves that you can strengthen and improve your eyesight; however, many people believe you can. Here are some of the things you can try that might make a difference in the way you see and your reliance on glasses:

Eye Exercises

Most people realize the importance of exercise for the body, but most people do not spend time exercising their eyes. Here are some eye exercises you can do that may help you keep your vision or improve it from its current state:

  • Back and forth – one exercise involves looking to your right and then to your left. As you do this, try to spot something new to the right of your body, and then do the same to the left.
  • Study a small object – with this exercise you will need something small, like a watch or a pen. Place it close to your eyes and focus on one small part of it. As you keep your eyes on this small feature, pull the object away from your eyes and then move it close to your eyes.
  • Roll your eyes – another exercise is to roll your eyes in a clockwise motion and then in a counter-clockwise motion.

Each of these may help you strengthen your eyes, and this could have an impact on your vision.

Things To Consume

Experts also believe that certain foods can help improve a person's eyesight, and here are some of the things that may help you:

  • Carrots – these contain beta-carotene, which is a type of Vitamin A. Beta-carotene is essential for good health of the retinas.
  • Dark, leafy green vegetables – green vegetables are good for your body in many ways, but they may also help with your vision. These vegetables are loaded with antioxidants, and consuming a sufficient amount of antioxidants may help you prevent macular generation.
  • Fish – fish that contain DHA (a fatty acid) are also good for the eyes.

In addition to eating right and exercising your eyes, it's also important to protect your eyes. You can do this by getting the right amount of sleep, and by wearing sunglasses when you are in bright sunlight.

If you already have bad eyesight and are tired of wearing glasses, you can still try these things to help your eyes. You can also talk to your eye doctor about getting corrective vision surgery so that you no longer have to wear glasses or contacts.

About Me

Care for Your Eyes Well to Preserve Your Good Vision

I still remember the day my mom took my family for our annual eye exams and I found out that I needed to start wearing eyeglasses. I really enjoyed picking out my first pair, and they were pink with cartoon characters on them! When I entered high school, my parents let me begin wearing contact lenses. I was afraid to put them in my eyes, but I was brave and did it! I recently began having lens discomfort, and I was really worried I would be told by my eye doctor that I wouldn't wear contacts anymore. I was grateful when he told me that I simply had dry eye and needed to use lubricant drops and wear my glasses a bit more often. I have since become dedicated to caring for my eyes well and I decided to start a blog to help others learn how too, too!
