I have researched the best way to keep my eyes healthy. The exercises I do each day help me to see without glasses and ensure healthy eyes.

Do Eye Exercises Work?

In a word YES.

When I was 51 years old I noticed that everything was getting grainy and blurry. I had always had good eyesight and this came as a big surprise to me. I put up with this for a while but finally had to break down and get eye glasses. I hated wearing them all day, because they would slip off my nose due to my sweaty nature and were a general pain to keep track of.

After a few years of this I finally decided to take control and see if I could actually improve my eyesight through exercises. I researched the internet and found many types of movements to perform that were supposed to improve my vision.

After a month I noticed a difference and after 3 months I no longer needed to wear my glasses all day. I still had to wear them while driving, because it said so on my drivers license.

I am going to share my daily routine of exercies with you and ask that you follow these for a period of 3 months.

During that time you should notice a difference in your vision. Good luck and good vision.

Extremely Important Part Of The Body

Think about what your life would be like if you lost your eyesight or if it deteriated to the point where you could hardly see. Wouldn't it be nice to stop or slow this process.

My Morning Routine

When I first started to think about trying to improve my vision, I looked at a hundred sites to see what was out there.

I discovered that your eye muscles are like any other muscle, they have to be exercised or they become stiff and lose the flexibility. I also found out that you need to get blood flowing into these muscles.
The only way to do this is to do some exercises that actually stretch the eye muscles and make them work a little.

I start my morning with these few movements to get the blood flowing and start some stretching.

1. Move the eyes from full left to full right while keeping the eyes level. I do this 10 times.

2. Move the eyes from looking straight down to straight up. Do this 10 times

3. Rotate the eyes from full right in a circle around , full up, full left, full cown and back to full right. Rotate fully 10 times.

4. Do number 3 in the opposite direction 10 more times

5. Move the eyes from full down left to full up right. Do this 10 times and then do 10 from full down right to full up left.

These few exercises will help stretch the muscles and get the blood flowing

Why Will Exercise For Eyes Help?

Do you know what happens anytime you don't use your body's muscles for a long period of time?

Weakness sets in, they start to get smaller and lose their flexibility. It will happen to all muscles within the body, also the muscles that cause movement in the eyes.

We all know that muscles control our arms and legs, but have you ever thought that they also control your eyes.

Perhaps you work at a computer and stare at the screen throughout the day, viewing a small area. This means that you don't move your eyes more than half an inch all day. Because of this your eyes barely move and the muscles will get weaker every single day. Your eye muscles lose their capability to move the eye and your vision will commence to deteriorate. Things will become fuzzy and blurry and you may feel pain when you make an effort to move your eyes.

Doing some simple movements regularly can assist you to strengthen the muscles that control and move your eyes. If you start an exercise program then you can recover much of the strength and flexibility that you lost. This will help you to improve your eyesight.

By doing some work and having persistnce, you can regain much of the eye muscle tone that you have lost. Beginning an eye exercise progam you will allow you to start to bring life giving blood back into the muscles. This blood will bring the oxygen and nutrients to your eyes and help to promote the healing process

Food Can Make A Difference

Instead of eating foods that cause inflammation in your body and eye muscles, try these foods and see what a difference it can make in improving your vision

Olive oil--This is an excellent source of oleic acid, which intensifies inflammation reduction. Work it into your cooking as a substitute for processed oils.

Eggs--Wonderful food with regards to your eys, but be careful what you cook them in, olive oil will be your best bet. If possible, get free range eggs from happily roaming chickens.

Grass fed beef--Grass fed has many more nutrients in comparison to the kind that comes out of a feed lot. It may be a bit more expensive, but well worth it

Cold water fish--Salmon is an excellent example of this variety of fish, which provide a tremendous amount of nutrients. Be mindful how you're going to cook it, no deep frying or using lard.

Another Simple Exercise

Daily Strain Can Ruin Your Vision

The worst thing we can do to our eyes is strain them.

Too much mental strain and focus can actually harm your eyesight and cause the eyes permanent damage.

Bad habits start from childhood, especially once school starts. These bad habits carry over into adulthood and cause damage to the eyes. Most of eye problems and ailments are simply caused by the bad habits learned in our youth.

Children have a natural curiosity to learn new things. Ask any kindergartener or first grader if they are excited for school and they will almost always say yes with genuine enthusiasm. Ask the same question of a junior high or high school student and they will moan at the thought of going back to school for another year. Why the huge difference between the two? School is too disciplined and children are forced to spend hours each day learning and memorizing things that don’t interest them.

Any subject that is uninteresting causes more concentration and the eyes to strain.

Not every person enjoys the same subjects, yet all children are forced to memorize and learn things in an uninteresting way. The eyes strain when forced to concentrate on images that don’t interest us.

Like numbers on an analytical report for work isn’t going to interest all the employees, mathematics, science, and English won’t interest every student. This doesn’t mean that have a well-rounded education should be thrown out the window. It simply means there needs to be a change in how children are educated. Throughout the day, the children should be allowed to do eye exercises to help their eyes relax.


Eye Yoga and Meditation Can Help

Just The Facts

Here are the top things to remember

  • Do eye exercises everyday
  • Relax your eyes during the day
  • Eat inflammation reducing foods

Your Eyes Are Very Important

The one thing we all should remember is the fact that we only have 2 eyes and won't get more.

We must do everything we can to protect our vision and ensure that our eyes remain healthy. Eating good food, drinking water and doing eye exercises will all help.

Take breaks during the day and do some vision improvement movements. Straining all day looking at computers, books or small type can do a great deal of damage.
