How to Improve Eye Vision Without Glasses

Do you wear glasses? Are you worried that you might need glasses because your eyesight isn’t what it used to be? In either case, there are things that you can do to strengthen your eyes and your vision without a pair of spectacles.

If You Wears Glasses, Do This One Thing FIRST

But first before you do this: we suggest ensuring that your glasses are optically sound. What does that mean? Make sure you clean your glasses thoroughly. Every day if not a few times a day. Moreover, ensure they’re free of scratches. Gadget Review has a handy guide on how to get scratches out of glasses.

We are going to share some of those tips with you so that your vision can be top notch. These days, we are using our eyes to stare at smartphones and computer screens more than ever before.  Our televisions don’t help either.

This leads to eye fatigue and age-related eye problems that can happen before your time. Use some or all of these tips to sharpen your vision.

The first thing that you can do is protect your eyes with your diet. Diet is everything. And besides, our eyes need several nutrients to be at the top of their game. Start with vitamins A, C, E, and minerals like copper and zinc. These are great for eye health.

Mom Wasn’t Kidding When She Told You to Eat Your Fruits and Vegetables

Did you know that you can protect your eyes from the harsh effects of the sun with antioxidants like beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin? You’ll find these in foods like dark leafy greens, as well as egg yolks, pumpkin, yellow peppers, sweet potatoes, and carrots. Everyone knows that carrots are good for eyes. Our moms always said so. The sun can damage the macula, but these foods will counter that.

Blueberries, grapes, and goji berries are rich in antioxidants and they also have excellent anti-inflammatory properties. They are all delicious, so eat up.

Eating fish also helps. Coldwater fish have a fatty acid called DHA. Eat wild salmon, mackerel, and sardines. DHA boosts structural support to your cell membranes and is great for the eyes.

Combat cataracts with foods that are rich in lecithin, sulfur, and cysteine. You can find these in foods like onions, garlic, shallots, and capers, to name a few.

Make Your Eyes Do Push Ups…Sort Of

Exercising can help too. What? Exercising your eyes? Yes, and it works. Practice some of these exercises and you should see some results after a while.

Roll those eyes like someone just told a bad joke. First look up. Then look around, slowly circling clockwise and then counterclockwise. Repeat as often as you need to.

Practice your focus by holding a pen at arm’s length. Then focus on it. You can slowly bring the object closer until it’s roughly 6 inches from your nose. Then stay focused on it as you slowly move it back. Repeat this as many times as you need to. This workout is great for strengthening your eyes.

A good massage never hurt anyone. So massage your temples in small circles. You can do it in one direction and then the other. Keep repeating as long as you need to. You can also do this above your eyebrows, then below the eyes on both sides of the nose. This also helps with some sinus issues.

Take Breaks, Kick Back and Relax

Sometimes rest can be just as nourishing as exercise for the body. Rest your eyes. Lay back and relax for 5 minutes with your eyes closed. This is good to do several times a day if you are a heavy computer user. And make sure that you get enough sleep every night. You should get at least 8 hours a night. Our bodies need the downtime.

Practice these healthy tips and you may just strengthen those eyes so that you don’t need glasses. These practices are good for anyone, glasses or no glasses. Our sight is precious, so it makes sense to take care of ourselves.
