Your Eye Problems Are Not Treated by Optometrists

Author: Snezha

When people hear about eye exercises and the facts how somebody else got healed by doing them their reaction is furious. Here are a few examples of the questions they ask:

  • "Why doctors right away prescribe glasses?"
  • "Why ophthalmologists do not inform me about eye exercises?"
  • "Why doctors lie about glasses?"

And there are many other questions that don't sound as polite as the ones above.

The answer is simple. Optometric colleges were created by the optical glass industry to train eye doctors how to prescribe glasses. The last thing the optical glass industry wants is for eye doctors to learn how to improve vision naturally. So most of the eye doctors receive no training in the use of eye exercises. Only a specialized group of eye doctors known as "behavioural optometrists" are trained to use eye exercises. Whether you want to reduce your dependency on corrective lenses or simply avoid the expense of a stronger prescription eye exercises will give you the help you need.

Instead of being angry at the doctors let's imagine the situation where we come to the ophthalmologist's office with vision problems thinking that our eyesight deteriorated and we hear the answer - exercise your eyes. What is your first reaction? Just imagine that you have never heard about the effect of eye exercises before and the only information you have about vision correction is prescribing glasses.

Just as many people benefit from physical exercises to improve the health, strength, and performance of their bodies, there is a growing public demand for eye exercises to improve the health, strength, and performance of the eyes and visual system.

As recently as 25 years ago, many medical doctors scorned the use of vitamins, exercise, and health-conscious nutrition. Nowadays, such practices are universally accepted as essential components of a healthy lifestyle. I believe that this is the time when the eye care profession should accept eye exercises as an adjunct to traditional methods in order to provide a well-balanced regimen of total eye care.

 There was one of the clinical evaluations carried out at Sacramento Vision Care Optometric Center in the fall of 1999. The purpose of the clinical evaluation was to investigate the effects of the certain eye exercises on a diverse group of individuals with minor visual problems.

 Subjects were instructed to practice the exercises at home for ½ hour per day for a total of six weeks by following the instructions in the audiocassette tapes, and to wear the eye patch at home for one hour per day. They needed also to develop the habit of doing specific exercises during normal activities such as using the telephone, during TV commercial breaks, standing in line while shopping, waiting at traffic lights, and so on, in order to convert periods of "down time" into vision improvement opportunities.

 Here are the results of the outcome:

 1) Plus Lens Group. The total combined spherical refractive error of this group was +35.00D before training and +21.75D after training. All 8 subjects showed a reduction in refractive error with an average reduction of 1.66D.

 2) Minus Lens Group. The total combined spherical refractive error of this group was -37.25D before training and -29.00D after training. The average reduction in refractive error was 0.59D. Of the 14 subjects, 11 showed a reduction in refractive error and 3 showed no change.

 3) Cylinder Lens Group. The total combined cylindrical refractive error of this group was -19.25D before training and -12.75D after training. The average reduction in refractive error was 0.54D. Of the 12 subjects, 10 showed a reduction in refractive error and 2 showed no change.

As you can see the results were astonishing. Therefore, before questioning why doctors do not prescribe eye exercises, please, search for behavioural optometrist and discuss all of the options you have. I am pretty sure this type of the doctor will be able to help you.

    My son ( 8) is having cylindrical eyesight, of power 4 & axis 180, what can be the cause & cure? Is it TV!?
    He’s addicted to TV & also uses the computer. Are these reponsible for his condition?

    • Baby says:

      What you describe is called astigmatism. It is most certainly not caused by watching TV. Its just how the shape of his eyes is – they are more oval rather them being round. This is very common and nothing to be so worried about. It is just like having any other sort of prescription such as near and far sightedness. It does not need to be “cured”. It can be corrected with the use of glasses much like any other prescription can be corrected

    What would be the effect of too strong of an eyesight correction?
    For spherical corrections, suppose you need -1.00 and you get -1.50 what would be the effect? Also, would it differ for positive corrections? If you need a 1.00 and you get 1.50 would you get an opposite effect?

    What about cylindrical corrections? If the angle is slightly off, does it just have a weaker effect or does it actually make things worse?

    • Peter H says:

      The correction of -1.00 is for slight short-sightedness, so over-correction will make you slightly long-sighted. Similarly over-correction of long sight will make you slightly short-sighted. Getting the angle wrong on cylindrical corrections will have a variable effect. The vision may be better than with no cylindrical correction, but still sub-optimal, or it may be worse.

    Laser Operation to improve eyesight can be done for spherical and cylindrical both?
    I heard it can’t be done for one of cylindrical or spherical??

    also if you can provide some details about it e.g. type of laser?, covered under mediclaim?

    • princeidoc says:

      “Laser Operation to improve eyesight can be done for spherical and cylindrical both?”

      YES

      “I heard it can’t be done for one of cylindrical or spherical??”

      no. false.

      “also if you can provide some details about it e.g. type of laser?”

      varies. depends on where you go

      “covered under mediclaim?”
      almost assuredly not.

    -2.00 Cylindrical eye sight at 175 axis?
    Dr Told me that i have -2.00 cylindrical eyesight @ 175 axis for left eye ? what it means ? am i need to wear spectacles how can i improve my sight … ?

  5. Curious says:

    Can I ever get normal eyesight?
    The power of the lens of my right eye is -3.00 (plus -1.00 cylindrical) and that of my left eye is -3.25 (plus -0.75 cylindrical). I wear spects 24×7 and I am 33 yrs old.

    Can I ever get normal eyesight with or without surgery? I just hate wearing spects or lens.
