How to improve your eyesight

Updated on August 3, 2016

Optical exercise

Your eye is a muscle

Your eyes are definitely the most important part of the human body. Everything on your body wears and tears after decades but the eyes can outlive any muscle or organ. beside your normal carrot intake and vitamins there is the exercising of the optical muscles. There are internal and external muscles in your eyes. Follow these exercise and improve your eye muscles which in turn improve your eyesight.

Here are 3 eye exercises.

1. Look at 2 objects in the room opposite wall of each other back and forth 30 times.

2. In a circular motion rotata your eyes 25 times left then right.

3. Look up and down 100 times

You can do 1 of these once a day or do all three twice a week and you'll notice that your eyes will get weary. Since your eyes are a muscle then that's like doing push-ups with your eyes. You'll feel a fatigue which is a good thing and your on your way to improving your eyes without any medicine. You might experience some dizziness so have a seat when exercising your eyes.

If you are on the computer a lot (like me) then I suggest wearing sunglasses, yes! in the house. They protect your eyes for those countless hours online. If you have a medicated pair then even better.

For daily an everyday exercise

Rub your palms together to create heat, and then place them against your eyes for five seconds. Trying rolling your eyes (not at somebody) and focusing on certain things from up close as well as from afar. Also try massaging your temples as prescribed by opticians world wide.

Personally I look at one item in the room and then at another item across the room back and forth for about five whole minutes (and continuous) a day. This might sound extreme and can get you a bit dizzy for some of us but this really works and you will feel the affects after just a few days at it.

Try This!

      Thanks for this!

      My eyesight has been getting weaker, now that I am in my 50's! I hate "needing" reading glasses--for everything anymore. Sad! I will try these exercises and I appreciate this hub! =)

      What we feed our bodies feeds our eyes. Many of the vitamins and minerals in our bodies are found in much higher concentrations in our eyes, so a diet lacking in these vitamins and minerals can lead to vision problems as we grow older.

      One main point to protect one's eyes is to always wear sunglasses when outside to protect against ultraviolet rays of the sun. Over a period of time, this can damage the eyes.

      I do eye exercise, look at your nose and then as far as possible (20). up and down (20), and rotate your eyes and reverse (4), but surely not 100 times which is too much. You possibly get dizzy doing them so many times.
