Glasses and contacts can be done away with if you put into practice some natural exercises. This is not easy to believe for those who have been wearing glasses for a long time, but trying these methods will do no one any harm. Most people who put on glasses believe the only way they can see without glasses is through surgery. No matter your age or sex, you can improve your vision by putting to practice some of these natural exercises.
Nowadays, eye problems and glasses are not only synonymous to old people but even the young ones who are now wearing glasses to correct their visual impairment. This can only be due to today’s lifestyle and technology improvement whereby people spend long hours in the front of the flashing lights of televisions, video games and computers without resting the eyes. Also, when we keep long hours into the night without giving the eyes adequate rest, there is a tendency over the long run for visual impairment.
So, how do we improve our vision? Like I said earlier, the best way to take care of our eyes is by giving it good exercise. But before we go on, we should understand the make-up of the eyes. The eyes are made up of small muscles that hold them to the eye socket. These muscles are also responsible for the movement of the eyes, and also the focusing of the vision on near or far objects. Like every other muscles in the body, the muscles of the eye also require rest when they grow tired. They need to be relaxed constantly during the day, and also after a long day’s work.
Adequate and well-planned breaks for the eyes can help improve your vision and would not make you depend on glasses or contacts all your life. These breaks will make your eyes sharper and more effective. Although, the use of contacts are effective and is the usual way of treating eye problems but you will have to be stuck with your glasses all your life. If you do not want this, then you should learn ways to see without glasses naturally.
A point worthy of note in visual treatment using natural ways is that most people put these techniques to use when their eye sight have deteriorated to a very bad state. These techniques should be started immediately you realize a change in your vision.
One natural technique introduced by William Bates in the 1800s to enhance the vision is a method called ‘swinging’. This involves the changing of the focus of the eyes between far and near objects. For example, try moving your eyes between your watch and an object hung on the wall.
Wearing eye glasses will only make your eyesight grow worse with constant headaches but the natural ways to improve your vision can restore your sight when put to regular use over a period of time.
