As we age, our eye muscles weaken and as a result we’ll have blurred vision and increased chances of blindness. Genetics is also a factor in whether we’re at risk for poor vision or not because if many of our relatives suffered from eye disorders, there’s a chance we’ll struggle with the same thing. One thing you should do is visit your ophthalmologist every few months to detect any possible eye problems which may cause blindness or poor vision. The ophthalmologist will examine your eyes for signs of glaucoma and he’ll suggest practical ways you can care for your eyes. But in between your visits, there are ways you can reduce bad eyesight with natural methods that don’t involve eye drops or surgery.
You want avoid long hours in front of the computer and television because this causes eyestrain and could lead to eye disorders such as macular degeneration and glaucoma as you get older. If you do a lot of work from your computer, take a break for a few hours and do other things or look around the room for a few minutes if you can’t take a break. When you’re out in the sun wear sunglasses and choose sunglasses that have UV protection from the sun and that are tinted. Also try not to face the sun directly when you look up while outside.

Eye doctors recommend that you do an eye crunch because when you’re actively using your eye muscles, you’re reducing your chances of myopia (nearsightedness) and eyestrain, which especially occurs among those who spend hours working in front of the computer or watching television. Dr. William Bates, an ophthalmologist, developed the earliest eye exercises in 1900 and he authored the book Perfect Sight Without Glass in 1920. Other benefits of doing an eye crunch include blood circulation to the eyes, reduction of eye tension and a reduction in the risk of age-related macular degeneration. Finally, the eye crunch repairs a lazy eye, which occurs when some of your eye muscles weaken.
One eye crunch to try is to read from an eye chart that you can purchase from a medical supplies store. Paste the eye chart on a wall that’s a few inches away from you then glance up at it every few minutes. Another idea is to put your hand over one of your eyes then try to read some of the letters on the chart. Do the same eye crunch with your other eye and repeat this for a few weeks.

According to a recent article in Reader’s Digest, 50,000 people lose their eyesight every year and 80 million Americans are at risk of eye diseases that cause low vision and blindness. While you can take prescriptions and get surgeries to improve your vision, you should develop healthy eating habits if you want to improve your vision permanently. You should eat a balanced diet when you’re young because right now you still have good vision and as you age your chances of low vision and blindness increase. But if you eat the right foods, you decrease your risk of eye disease and you’re better able to see the things and people you love the most for years to come.

Look at the dot again, but this time without straining. In fact, allow your eyes to move all over the page and once you come to the dot again, close your eyes. Imagine the dot while your eyes are closed and then open them.
