I have researched the best way to improve my vision and keep my eyes healthy. Good vision is too important not to take seriously.

Improve your vision starting now

Who would like to improve their vision and give up their eyeglasses?

I don't know about you but I got extremely tired of wearing my eyeglasses all the time. I hate having to push them up after they slide down my nose, feeling the sweat run down my nose from under the glasses and having those big dents on the edges of my nose.

I hated wearing them but I had no choice when my eyesight started to fail me. The sad thing was, I couldn't pass the vision section of my drivers test, so off to the optometrist I went for the exam and fitting. Of course it was really good to see clearly again but I never really enjoyed having to have them on everywhere I went.

After a few years I just got plain fed up and started to look for ways to improve my vision. I searched the internet for advice and found many site that could help me out. I took a course and was shocked at how much improvement there was. I then worked up a daily schedule that I could follow to improve my eyesight. Since then I have seen improvement each year.

I am sharing the exercises that I use on a daily basis to help keep my eyes on the path to improvement. With some effort on your part they will help you on your way to better vision.

Do Eye Exercises Work?

I can say without a doubt, yes they do.

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 exercises 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.

Me Having Fun Without Glasses


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 eye exercises 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. If you notice some pain or discomfort, don't stretch so far or cut down on the number of times for each exercise. Your eye muscles are like any other muscle, when you first start stretching them they could hurt until warmed up.

Why Will Eye Exercise 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.

Perform some of these exercises everyday for best resuts

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 persistence, you can regain much of the eye muscle tone that you have lost.

Beginning an eye exercise program 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

If you are having trouble with blurred vision or you notice your near or far eyesight is not good, exercises can help. My vision problem was old age not some eye disease so I knew my vision could be improved. I didn't want to spend more money on glasses, so this book gave me the information I needed to start improving my eyesight.


Good eating can improve your vision

Never underestimate the power of the food you eat. Fruits and vegetables are a great source of the nutrients you need to help your eyes stay strong and your vision improve

The food you eat can make a difference. Nutrition packed food will help your entire body

Fruits, vegetables and protein loaded food will help improve your vision

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 this food, no deep frying or using lard.

After a short period of time you should notice less pain in your body and your eye muscles should be much easier to work with.

Even Small Children Can Perform Eyesight Improvement Exercises

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. Reading with poor lighting, poor diet, holding books too close and constantly looking at small phone screens.

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 kindergartner 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. Two or three minutes of very basic exercises will make a huge difference in the health of the child's eyes.

Eye Yoga and Meditation Can Help

For anyone who practices meditation,this book is a must. I do meditation everyday so this was easy for me. I combined eye yoga with my normal eye exercises and felt a big difference right away.


Just The Facts

Here are the top things to remember

  • Do eye exercises everyday
  • Relax your eyes during the day
  • Eat inflammation reducing foods
  • Drink plenty of water during the day

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.

Now after 11 years of vision improvement exercises

I am very happy to say that after 11 years of doing my eye exercises 5 days a week, my vision is better than ever. Yes it is hard to believe, but I can see better now, at age 76 then I could at age 68.

There is no doubt in my mind that these exercises have made a huge difference in my life. I watch TV at night and don't need to wear my glasses. I go to a movie and I don't need to wear my glasses. Reading a book is a breeze, that's right, no glasses. In fat I have changed to the first pair of glasses I owned over 20 years ago. My vision keeps improving, simply because I do my exercises.

If you do vision improvement each day you should get the same results.
