Can Eye Exercises Actually Improve Your Vision? - Tips to Help You Correct Your Eyesight

Author: Frank N. Fru

So this is the question: Can eye exercises actually improve your vision? If so, by how much? And if not, what does it actually do? Is there any way to improve eyesight without Lasik eye surgery?

If you have a poor vision, and have been making some research online of ways to naturally improve your eyesight, then there is a good chance you've stumbled on websites where people ask questions as the one asked above. Most these people are those who suffering with a poor vision and would want to correct or improve it. I have been there too, so I know exactly how it feels to have a poor-eyesight. In this article, I will through more light on this subject, and also provide links to internet resources you can use to help you get a better vision.

This really depends on what type of vision impairment you have. If you have some sort of oculomotor issue (having to do with the muscles of your eye) then yes, vision therapy at an optometrist's office can be beneficial (also kinda depends on your age and motivation).

If you are referring to refractive error (nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, presbyopia (can't see at near over the age of 40)) then the answer is no. There are a lot of myths that exercises can improve refractive errors and it simply is just that....a myth. If you want to correct refractive error, you will need glasses, contacts or surgery (LASIK, LASEK, PRK, RK, etc). Glasses and contacts would be the best bets.

If you have certain refractive errors, you might be a good candidate for orthkeratology. Basically, custom made contacts are worn overnight to reshape your cornea so your vision improves during the day. This treatment is typically offered at optometrist's office that specialize in contact lenses, specifically RGP (rigid gas permeable) contact lenses.

I would suggest an appointment at an optometrist's office to see what your options are for vision correction. Yes, they do work. But, please note that it will not dramatically. Yes, you can get glasses or contact lenses to improve your vision (only when you are wearing them).

Do you want to discover how to improve your vision using nothing but naturally proven techniques which are Safe, simple yet very effective? If yes, then you need to a copy of the Vision Without Glasses Guide.

    Eye exercises?
    I recently got a stronger prescription (I am nearsighted about 2030) I want to go back to my older prescription or possible wear no glasses at all. I am doing eye exercises (vision therapy) for 90 days and I am promised that my prescription should dimish significantly. First of all, in order to have any progress, I am wearing my old perscription which is fine. Has anyone had any progress in these “eye exercises.” On the contrary, the exercises do not work to strengthen the eye, but enables you to see the world differently.

      Sit comfortably on a chair. Rub your hands together until they feel warm. Close your eyes and cover them lightly with your cupped palms. Avoid applying pressure on your eyeballs. Place your palms so that the nose remains uncovered, and the eyes remain behind the slight hollow of the palms. Make sure that no light rays enter the eyes, and leave no gaps between fingers or between the edge of the palms and the nose. You may still see other lingering traces of colors. Imagine deep blackness and focus on the blackness. Take deep breaths slowly and evenly, while thinking of some happy incident; or visualize a distant scene. After your eyes see nothing but blackness, remove your palms from your eyes. Repeat the palming for 3 minutes or more

      Close your eyes tightly for 3-5 seconds, then open them for 3-5 seconds. Repeat this 7 or 8 times.
      Close your eyes and massage them with circular movements of your fingers for 1-2 minutes. Make sure you press very lightly; otherwise, you could hurt your eyes.
      Press three fingers of each hand against your upper eyelids, and hold them there for 1-2 seconds, then release. Repeat 5 times.
      Sit and relax. Roll your eyes clockwise, then counter-clockwise. Repeat 5 times, and blink in between each time.
      Sit about 6 inches (200 mm) from the window. Make a mark on the glass at your eye level (a small sticker, black or red, would be perfect). Look through this mark and focus on something far away for 10-15 seconds; then focus on the mark again.
      Hold a pencil in front of you at arm’s length. Move your arm slowly to your nose, and follow the pencil with your eyes until you can’t keep it in focus. Repeat 10 times.
      Look in front of you at the opposite wall and pretend that you are writing with your eyes, without turning your head. It may seem difficult at first, but with a bit of practice it is really fun. The bigger the letters, the better the effect.
      Imagine that you are standing in front of a really big clock. Look at the middle of the clock. Then look at any hour mark, without turning your head. Look back at the center. Then look at another hour mark. Do this at least 12 times. You can also do this exercise with your eyes closed.
      Focus on a distant object (over 150 feet or 50 m away) for several seconds and slowly refocus your eyes on a nearby object (less than 30 feet or 10 m away) that’s in the same direction. Focus for several seconds and go back to the distant object. Do this 5 times.
      Focus on an object in the distance (as far as possible) with a low contrasting background. Do this for a few minutes every half hour or so. This does not improve your vision, nor does any other technique. It can, however, maintain your best eyesight level during the day and prevent significant further vision deterioration.

    How come people said that eye exercises can improve the eyesight but other people don’t?
    Some people said eye exercises definitely did improve their eyesight and they said eye exercises can work. But how come people said that eye exercises DON’T improve your eyesight?

    It is kind of confusing.

      Sometimes eye exercises can improve vision. It depends on the source of the problem. You should consult with a doctor who practices vision therapy and find out what options are available to you.
