Our eyes are some of our most precious organs – so we should be doing all we can to take care of them! However, in today’s world, it can be difficult to find the time to really take care of our eyes. But did you know you can improve your eyesight without contacts or glasses? Have you ever tried eye exercises, or proper nutrition for your eyes? Keep reading to find out some simple things you can do every day to improve your vision naturally and fast.
How Do We Lose Our Sight?
OK, here’s a bit more technical stuff about the process of ‘seeing’. If you’re not that
bothered about understanding the mechanics of it all, Scroll below and
See The explanation.
The muscles of your eyes change the shape of your eye, and the shape of your
eye lens, so that whatever you are looking at, gets focused in the right place on the
retina. If the muscles are not working properly, the image is focused in the wrong
place and appears fuzzy!
Yes, that lacks a little finesse, as far as explanations go, but it gives you the basic
Now, if it is your eye muscles that allow you to see clearly, then it follows that ‘out
of shape’ eye muscles are going to cause poor vision.
Eye muscles need exercise just as much as the other muscles in your body.
If you put your arm in a brace for a few weeks, the muscles will get weaker and
Because of the lack of movement and usage, the blood doesn’t circulate as it
needs to, and the muscles are deprived of nutrition.
Basically, nothing in the living world remains the same, it is either growing or it is
dying. This is where we get the expression – ‘use it or lose it’!!
The eyes’ tiny muscles are no exception.
If they are not exercised and used to their full capabilities, they will begin to
atrophy. In other words, if you are not working on improving your vision, it is going
to get worse!
When your eye muscles get weaker, they aren’t able to pull the eye, and the lens
of the eye, into the right shapes to focus your vision correctly.
When your eye muscles are too weak to be able to focus the eyeball on a close
object, you end up with Myopia [nearsightedness). When it’s a distant object you
can’t focus on, you get Presbyopia (farsightedness).
When you begin to do your eye exercises, you’ll start to bring your
eye muscles back into shape. Imagine that when you’re doing your
15 minute exercise session, you’re sending your eye muscles to t he
gym to ‘pump some iron’!Just like a body builder, who can build a stronger and leaner body than the
average person, by spending enough time, regularly doing the RIGHT exercises,
you can also develop your eye muscles way beyond the average person.
The worst thing you can do for your health and eyesight is to rely on somebody else for your well-being. To hand over your health and your vision to somebody who has a finan-cial interest in you being sick, or with vision problems in this case, creates a conflict of interests. The information in this report is designed to put you back into the driver seat. It’s designed to show you how you can take back the responsibility for fixing yourself.
Get a clear, focused reason why
It’s just a great feeling to have a laser-sharp focus and know exactly why you want something and you will move Heaven and Earth to get it. Because of this clear, laser-sharp focus, you have the emotional drive to get up in the morning. No matter what happens, you pursue it. That laser-sharp focus is crucial, it’s essential, and one of the most important things you can ever do to improve your vision, and with it improve your life. You need to have a target and you MUST know why you want that target. It must be clear and specific, emotionally charged, with a deadline.
Create Your Own Instant Motivation
Here’s an incredibly simple exercise you can use, ANYTIME YOU LIKE, to get yourself to follow through on just about anything. If you’ve made a commitment to do something, then you probably have good
reasons for making that promise to yourself. To create the motivation you need to make yourself take action, all you have to do is remember why you made the commitment. OK, I know what you’re thinking… “Yeah, I promised I’d do my eye exercises because I want to see without lenses – I remember fine, but I still ‘forget’ to do my exercises, or I ‘bunk off’ when I know I shouldn’t” The thing is, you may ‘theoretically’ know you’re supposed to do your exercises, and why you ‘should’ do them, but that doesn’t create motivation. To get motivation, you have to emotionally feel the reasons. You have to create
enough emotional juice to turn the ‘should’ do my exercises, into ‘MUST’ do my
It’s really not that difficult, here’s an example.
Q: Why do you want to do your eye exercises?
A: Because I want to see better.
(no emotional juice there – let’s try again)
Q: OK, if you could see better, how would that improve your life?
A: If I could see better, then I wouldn’t need to wear glasses to read
(hmmm, again not much juice – try again)
A: If I could see better, I’d be able to wake up in the morning and see the beautiful
face of my partner lying on the pillow beside me, rather than a fuzzy blur.(that’s better – can you put yourself in that position, imagine that actual experience
and feel the emotion?)
A: If I could see better, I wouldn’t need to wear glasses anymore. I hate wearing glasses, and I especially hate the two little red marks they make on the bridge of my nose. I hate getting all steamed up whenever I walk inside from a cold day. I hate the way they make me look like a nerd. I hate …..(that’s the spirit – feel that emotion! Once you get enough of that juice flowing, nothing will stop you from your commitment to your natural healing program) OK, here’s the exercise … DON’T READ ANY FURTHER IN THIS BOOK UNTIL YOU HAVE DONE THIS EXERCISE – PLEASE! Take a piece of plain paper, or even better, take your Natural Vision Correction Adventure Diary, open it to the first page, and write down 10-20 things you would/could do if you could see better. These are the ‘carrots’, now you also need the ‘sticks’ Now write down 10-20 things you absolutely HATE about your poor vision. These
are the things that you are going to have to LIVE WITH FOR THE REST OF YOUR
LIFE if you don’t fix your eyes. Read that again… if you don’t fix your eyes, you will have to LIVE WITH THESE THINGS FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE. If that doesn’t get you motivated to take action, then you simply haven’t put yourself ‘inside’ of the emotion of the ‘carrots’ and the ‘sticks’. Remember, the
theory won’t motivate you, YOU MUST FEEL THE EMOTION.
Sunglasses shield your eyes from the life-giving sun. They aren’t good for your
eyes at all, except in drastic circumstances such as a bright sunny day in the snow
covered mountains. Wearing sunglasses all the time can lead to photo- sensitivity or even photo-phobia (fear of light). Many eye specialists now warn against the excessive
use of sunglasses. They say that it can cause blindness by paralyzing the eye-pupil. In bright light the pupil becomes smaller and in darkness it becomes larger. Wearing sunglasses in sunlight keeps the pupil expanded because the shaded lens does not allow light to enter. This is what weakens the eyes.
If you are driving into the sunset or sunrise, use your sunglasses to reduce glare,
otherwise leave them off. The modern fashion of wearing sunglasses all the time, even indoors or at night, is only going to damage your vision. If the sun bothers your eyes, the best remedy is to spend more time outside in the daylight!
this is the single most important exercise you can do to correct and
improve your eyesight. Wash your eyes 4-5 times in day.
The Pinhole Effect
The pinhole effect allows you to see clearly in the long distance, instantly. It’s a bit of a novelty trick for our purposes but you may find a use for it (for example, if you desperately need to read a sign post and don’t have your glasses). Plus, it teaches one of the fundamental principles of how your eyesight works.
The pinhole effect works by blocking out light rays coming from all different angles, only allowing light rays to enter the eye head-on. This means your inner lens no longer needs to precisely focus and refract light rays to create a clear image – only allow them to fall straight on your retina at the back of your eye.
You can see the pinhole effect for yourself right now:
How To Use The Pinhole Effect to Improve Long Distance Vision
First, remove your glasses. Look into the long distance and try to focus on a specific point – it will be blurry if you have poor long distance vision.
The Pinhole Effect – Before
Now make a tight fist and put it up to one eye, closing the other eye. Open your fist just enough to let the tiniest spot of light enter – a tiny pinhole. The spot you’re looking at is now in sharp focus. That’s the pinhole effect.
To see the contrast, open your fist a little wider and let more light in, and the image will go blurry again. Now tighten it, and the image will become sharper.
The Pinhole Effect – After
Does the pinhole effect actually improve your long distance vision? Yes, but only for very specific scenarios where you need to see clearly with telescopic vision. It’s the healthier equivalent of squinting (which also blocks excess light rays from entering the eye) but without the eye strain or the funny looks from strangers.
Wear Your Glasses Less
Talking of eye strain… Numerous scientific journals have published papers about the impact that wearing glasses has on your natural vision.
Research shows that minus lenses in particular (worn to correct long distance vision) tire out the visual system, causing significant eye strain. This in itself can be a major contributor to blurry vision and further eyesight deterioration.
Let There Be Light
The more light that lands on an object, the easier it is to see. So when you step outdoors into direct sunlight, your natural vision can improve dramatically.
Try it next time you’re out in the sun. Remove your glasses or contact lenses (don’t wear any sunglasses either). The first time you do this, allow yourself a decent amount of time to adjust – at least 10-20 minutes, all the while looking around, practicing your close-up, middle distance and long distance vision.
You’ll be surprised by the level of detail you can actually make out when you make the effort to focus naturally. The sunlight can really help define objects in the far distance, giving you surprisingly good vision. This can be a breakthrough moment for anyone who believed they were fully dependent on wearing glasses to see clearly. Things aren’t always as they seem!
Your Distance Vision is Better Outdoors in The Sun
Get Your Vitamin D On
While you’re outside soaking up the sunlight, you’ll also be soaking up a good dose of vitamin D – aka The Sunshine Vitamin. This is key to improving your vision because a deficiency of the vitamin has been scientifically linked to macular degeneration in middle-aged subjects.
What’s more, a study published by Arthur Alexander Knapp, MD, found that severe myopia responded to treatment with vitamin D and calcium in more than 50% of subjects.
Incidentally, vitamin D also plays a key role in defending against 17 types of cancer as well as heart disease, stroke, hypertension, diabetes, osteoporosis, chronic pain, and many other common diseases of the Western world.
So, are you getting your vitamin D on?
The average person needs to spend at least 20 minutes in the sun, three times per week, in order to obtain their recommended dose of vitamin D.
Studies show that many people are vitamin D deficient during the winter months, or in places where there is less sunlight in general. You can combat this by taking a daily vitamin D3 supplement (recommended dose: 5,000 IU) or eating vitamin D-rich foods (such as fatty fish and fish liver oils).
Use Your Long Distance Vision
Modern living has sparked something of a myopia epidemic. Our children are spending more of their free time indoors watching TV and playing video games than generations of the past, and their long distance vision is suffering.
In China, a massive 76% of lower middle school students are already nearsighted. Education officials now see to it that Chinese students perform eye exercises twice a day in order to tackle the myopia epidemic.
In contrast, countries whose cultures place more emphasis on sports and outdoor living – such as Australia and New Zealand – have among the lowest occurrence of nearsightedness in the world. The solution, then, is to spend more time outdoors and actually using your long distance vision.
Like any muscle – even like your brain – if you stop using your eyes they can become weak. If you’re nearsighted, you probably spend a lot of time indoors performing close-up tasks and your long distance vision has become weak. You can correct this by enjoying the great outdoors more frequently and focusing in the long distance. The next tip will show you how…
Trace The Horizon
Tracing is a simple but effective eye exercise to improve your long distance vision while you’re outside. It works by teaching the eyes to flow in easy movements.
If you do a lot of close-up work, your eyes are either fixed in a stare or limited to small areas right in front of your face – both of which increase the tension which leads to further myopia progression. This eye exercise will work your vision as it originally evolved to perform: scanning the horizon for predators and prey.
How To Perform The Tracing Exercise
When you are outside (or looking out a window), remove your glasses or contact lenses and attain the best focus you can into the distance.
Start from your left and trace the horizon with your eyes, moving up and down along the very edge of each object that breaks the horizon. Go slowly and deliberately – there’s no point rushing. When you reach the edge, return from right to left. When you’ve finished, relax your eyes (see tip #6).
The Tracing Eye Exercise for Long Distance Vision
If you’re not blessed with long distance views to gaze at all day, you can perform this eye exercise just about anywhere:
When indoors, look at the furthest point in the room (at least 7 feet away to be classed as long distance vision) and trace around the objects you see – doorframes, pictures and furniture provide good wide outlines.
When in a town or city center, choose a distant building and trace around its edges, then spiral in tracing the windows and doors. Remember to blink normally and relax your facial muscles so you don’t hold any tension.
7. Avoid Computer Vision Syndrome
Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) is thought to affect 75% of all computer users and is a major contributor to loss of long distance vision. The symptoms of CVS are:
- Eye strain
- Dry or itchy eyes
- Pain looking out the corner of your eye
- Headaches, neck ache and pain behind your eyes
- Problems shifting focus from the monitor to paperwork
- Increased sensitivity to light
- Difficulty focusing on the screen
- Gradual vision deterioration over time
Are you experiencing any of these symptoms right now? If so, there are a number of ways to protect against Computer Vision Syndrome. These will ultimately prevent computer eye strain and improve your long distance vision.

You can also rest your eyes by following the 10-10-10 rule. This means you should look at something 10 feet away for 10 seconds for every 10 minutes you spend working on the computer!
Additionally, getting around eight hours of sleep a night is incredibly important for your eye health. If your eyes are well-rested, they will be in much better condition! If you currently do not sleep enough or take enough breaks at work, try it out for a week and see the difference it can make!
Perform Eye Exercises
One of the fastest ways to improve your vision naturally is to perform daily eye exercises. Eye exercises are meant to strengthen the eyes and improve vision. Using eye exercises can even eliminate your need for contacts or glasses. Get a regular schedule of eye exercises and try to do them daily – this will help you get in the habit of performing exercises and also help you achieve better vision fast.
First, apply heat to your eyes by rubbing your palms together and then placing them over your eyes. Hold your hands over your eyes for five to 10 seconds, and then repeat. Do this before performing any eye exercises in order to prepare your eyes!
Start exercising by rolling your eyes. Rolling is one of the easiest eye exercises! Without straining your eyes (remember to stop if it hurts), look up as far as you can. Then, look down. Repeat this 10 times. Now look to each side, repeating 10 times. After that, look in each diagonal direction. Finally, roll your eyes in a counter-clockwise motion about 10 times, then reverse the movement and roll them clockwise.
Grab a pen and hold it at arm’s length, making sure the pen is at eye level. Focus on the tip of the pen as you move it closer to your eyes. Stop when you get about six inches away from your face, and focus on the tip as you move it back to arm’s length. Remember to do this slowly and focus on the tip of the pen. Repeat about 10 times.
Massage your eyes after exercising. First, massage your temples with your fingertips or one of your knuckles. Move in a clockwise motion several times, and then switch to a counter-clockwise motion. Massage over your eyebrows and under your eyes as well.
When you’re done exercising and massaging, apply heat to your eyes once more by rubbing your palms together. If your eyes are really tired, close them and rest for a few moments. Resting your eyes frequently, as described in the previous section, is very important to preserving the health of your eyes!
