I hate to be the one telling you this … but the truth is, most of the things you know about eyesight is dead wrong. I know. I was just like you not so long ago, frustrated with having to wear glasses all day every day or I can not see a single thing (I was -5.00 myopic). I was not able to see where my friend was when we go to the beach because obviously you can not wear your glasses into the sea. I was not able to wear sunglasses when I was a teen because I could not afford a prescription sunglasses.
Not only that … Headache would set in every now and then that I could not explain.
All that changed when I learned the truth. I learned that glasses are not only unnecessary if you want to stop your eyesight from deteriorating, it actually contributes to the problem. Think about it.
Your glasses are made for you to see things that are relatively further than what you would normally see in day to day activities … like reading books and looking at the monitor. This difference causes strain and headaches. As soon as I reduce the use of my glasses, I notice a significant improvement on the headaches I've been 11 years old!
This difference also causes your eyesight to deteriorate further because your eyes muscles would have to contract harder for you to see close distance objects. As time goes by, this contracting becomes permanent and then chronic – or in other words, you can no longer control it.
It's just like a backache where you back muscles contract involuntarily.
Fortunately for me, I found a solution that works. Believe me when I tell you this is the only thing that works. I've tried it all – including lasik – only to have my eyesight deteriorate worse than it was before the surgery. And oh, it comes with the nasty side effect of dry eyes.
The solution I'm talking about are "eye exercises". While it's called "exercises", it's really a way to help your eyes learn how to relax. The exercises allows you to relearn the correct way to see by simple repetition. As long as you do it everyday, it's inevitable your vision would improve.
