How to Naturally Improve Eyesight

Many people wonder why their doctor or optometrist never informed them about natural alternatives to expensive and harmful contacts, glasses, and laser eye surgery...

With more than 25 years in the field I can assure you... it's not a big fat greedy conspiracy between doctors, optometrist, and the optometry industry.

Most doctors and optometrist out there are good people who want nothing but the best for their patients. I should know because I was like that for years... kept in the dark by ignorance.

What I'm saying is this:

Education is a wonderful thing, but the downside of filling your head with "knowledge" is that it makes less room for being open to alternatives.

Mostly every eye doctor and optometrist truly believe that THEY KNOW BEST... and quite frankly, they have to... The grim alternative is to face a life crises (like I did), and the complete breakdown of their current life and practice.

The optometry industry is one thing... but it's no use blaming your doctor or optometrist for being ignorant. Rather be happy you've been lucky enough to stumble upon this quick and reliable way to regain your natural vision abilities.

How to Improve Your Eyesight

from wikiHow - The How to Manual That You Can Edit

Improving your eyesight takes dedication. There are certain exercises to achieve this goal.


  1. Learn about how vision works. This way, you can understand what you are doing when you are retraining your vision. Improving your vision is a matter of changing the habitual way you see and use your eyes.
  2. Get an eye chart. Place it on the wall so you can measure your progress. You can usually find one online.
  3. Do relaxation exercises. Place your hands together palm to palm and rub them together briskly creating heat. Place them over your eyes and let your eyes relax. Imagine a relaxing place. Do not let light in. Do this whenever you have time during the day, especially when you're sitting at the computer.
    • Use alternating hot and cold compresses on your eyes daily to help relax them.
  4. Maintain Moisture. Maintaining the natural balance of moisture within your eyes is one of the most important things you can do to keep them healthy. Dry eyes can be itchy, red and even painful. Try to blink frequently, even when you are focused on watching TV or working on your computer.
  5. Get Rid of Fluorescent Lighting. Fluorescent lighting is bad for your eyes. If possible, use full-spectrum lighting, or natural light whenever you can. You might not be able to change the lights at work, but what you use at home is your own decision.
  6. Exercise Your Eyes. If you think about the way your muscles work, then you probably understand that the less exercise they get, the worse off you are. The same thing goes for your eyes. There are specific exercises you can do, that may be able to help you see better.
    • Use the 20/20/20 exercise. Every twenty minutes, focus on an object that's at least twenty feet away, for twenty seconds. You'll be surprised at how much better your eyes feel.
    • Put your thumb 5 inches away from your face and focus on it, after 5 seconds focus on something behind it. Do this for about 10 times and whenever you have time.
  7. Increase Eye Flexibility. If you have ever undertaken an exercise program or played a sport, then you know that flexibility is important. If you don't stretch, or if you use the same muscles over and over again without moving opposite muscle groups, you lose flexibility. If you have a job that requires you to spend long hours looking at a screen, be sure you focus on different objects periodically; try not to keep your eyes in the same position for too long.
  8. Lower The Brightness Level Of Your Computer Screen. Lowering the brightness level of your computer's monitor can help your eyes to relax. Don't lower it so much that you have trouble seeing, and avoid positioning your monitor so there are reflections.
  9. Take Regular Breaks. If your eyes must focus on a task for long periods of time, take regular breaks. Taking a ten minute break every hour can help prevent eye strain and give your eyes a chance to heal themselves.
  10. Reduce Stress. Every one of the body's systems reacts to stress differently. The eyes are put under constant strain and stress - the more TV you watch, the more you stare at a computer screen, and the more you play games on your smartphone, the more stress you put on your eyes. Make an effort to use natural light, and take time away from your gadgets. You might be surprised to find that you see and feel better as a result.
  11. Get Some Shut-Eye. You might have noticed that when you go for long periods of time without adequate sleep, you feel tired and head-achy. You also may have noticed that your vision seems blurry and that it almost hurts to keep your eyes open. Sleep is important for all your bodily functions, and getting adequate rest can assist in eyesight improvement since sleep allows overworked eye muscles to relax completely.
  12. Protect your eyes from UV rays. Wear good quality sunglasses that provide UV protection, and your eyes will thank you. Amazingly enough, you can gain eyesight improvement, and look great - all at the same time!
  1. 'Feed' Your Eyes. Just like the rest of the body, the eyes need good nutrition to function well. Carrots, kale, blueberries, apricots, and other foods rich in beta carotene are all good for your eyes. [1] Stay away from junk!
  2. Stay Hydrated. The average human body is made up of about 60% water, sometimes more. If your eyes are often dry, tired and blurry, try increasing your water intake. In addition, drinking plenty of water is important for your whole body - so ditch the soda, and drink that water!
  3. Try taking Vitamins For Vital Vision. Help your eyes by getting plenty of vitamins A and C, as well as Lutein & Zeaxanthin.
    • Don't Forget Omega 3's. Omega 3 fatty acids are essential nutrients that can help maximize your health. Most people know that they're good for your heart - what many don't realize is that Omega 3's can help keep your retinas healthy and stop age-related eyesight deterioration.
  4. Take Amino Acids. Amino acids, especially Taurine, are essential for eye health. Aminos protect your eyes from the free radicals that can cause damage over time - they keep eye tissue healthy and prevent eye deterioration.


  • Try to avoid reading, watching TV, or using the computer in the dark.
  • Take the time to become aware of how you use your eyes to see.
  • Seeing is more about relaxing your eyes.
  • Pay attention to how you feel when you see. Stress can add to vision problems.
  • Practice everyday for a month or so or until you see changes.


  • Thoroughly research nutritional products to enhance you overall health and support the vision process.
