Improving Vision the Natural Way
Many of today's vision problems can stem from using your eyes the same way all the time. After reading Magical Mind, Magical Body by Deepak Chopra I've learned that it is helpful to change the way we look at things to improve our vision. The eye uses muscles to bend the lens in our eyes to focus our sight far and near, with a regular workout of these muscles it is possible to improve our vision to perfect 20/20.
Far and Near Technique
Basically focus on something near then change focus to something far. This is similar to stretching leg muscles before you run and should be done in the morning before any other strenuous eye activity.
Place your hand in 2-3inches in front of you face focus your eyes and hold for about 10 seconds then change your focus to a painting or other object across the room from you, hold and repeat for 3-5 minutes.
I have also done this while driving on the highway, I focus on my gauges for a bit then change focus to as far as I can see, usually a sign or something that can be read.
Another example is using your favorite book. Start by reading a paragraph with the book as goes to your face as possible, just beyond the point of losing focus. Then read the next paragraph at a normal distant. Read the next paragraph with the book as far away as possible, just beyond the point of losing focus and repeat this near, normal, then far.
As with any exercise please don't over do it, stop and rest if excessive pain occurs.
For more info and additional techniques read Deepak Chopra's book Magical Mind, Magical Body.

-When you focus on the best, you get the best. But, you must be serious!
