Better eyesight without glasses was once just a dream for many people. Now, however, there are more and more alternatives to helping achieve better vision.
The first alternative to glasses that most people think of are contact lenses. People who used to feel self-conscious about how they looked in glasses can now hide their use of corrective lenses if they so desire. More than cosmetic benefits, they can also be useful for people such as athletes, protecting them from the dangers of glasses breaking during extreme physical activity.
Better eyesight without glasses can also come through the benefit of laser surgery. Laser surgery, for example, has been a godsend for people with astigmatism. Some of these did not have good alternatives prior, due to their particular type of disorder.
Depending on how severe your vision disorder is, you may be able to get benefit from some natural alternatives. It may seem like a joke, but many of us grew up with the idea that carrots, i. E., Vitamin A intake, could help with correcting vision problems. Many people are proponents of the idea that other dietary changes or supplements may help as well.
A method that has been getting a lot of quiet attention for years is the use of eye exercises for improving vision. True, these exercises and the efficacy of them is extremely controversial. But many people swear by the results that they have achieved through use of these exercises.
Of course, you always want to be cautious when a therapy is backed only by anecdotal evidence. We always feel better when there is hard science behind our medical treatments. On the other hand, there are natural therapies, such as massage and acupuncture, that have been in use for centuries that are only just beginning to yield studies to prove all the personal stories that have been told.
In any case, whichever alternative or alternatives you choose, there are choices for better eyesight without glasses.
