As our world becomes more and more connected, we’re exposing our eyes to more and more sources of artificial lighting, computer screens, and television sets. There is no argument that all of this overexposure is actually damaging our eyes – what’s incredible and a bit staggering is the extreme rate at which we’re accepting this as an inevitability.
Our eyes are one of our most important parts of the body, and without proper vision and eye health we’d find ourselves literally lost in our world. Healthy vision is absolutely critical to for many of us to lead the kinds of lives we’ve become accustomed to, and if we don’t do something fast we’re all going to end up paying a very steep price.
The absolute worst thing we can do is keep putting our eyes under incredible strain – and remarkably, that’s just about what most of our modern solutions end up doing. Eye glasses and contacts can be incredibly damaging to our eye sight, putting great strain on them. You’re looking at the world through a powerful external lens – and did you ever notice that most glasses wearers need to go and get their prescriptions updated every couple of years? That’s because these solutions are only band aids – something to cover up the actual problem rather than curing it.
Laser is a new and groundbreaking solution, and has been used to some incredible effect worldwide. The major problems here of course are its almost prohibitive cost, as well as a pretty serious inherent risk in all surgeries of something going wrong. While it’s been used to help many, many people worldwide regain their eyesight, it’s still not a viable option for everyone.
Luckily though, there is something that you can do that costs absolutely nothing, is completely natural, takes very little time, and will actually naturally improve your vision. I’m talking of course about performing eye therapy exercises.
Before we go any further though, please remember that not all solutions work for everyone. Eye therapy has helped millions all over the world revitalize their health, but all to varying degrees of success. It’s very possible that you have a medical condition or trauma that would render these otherwise effective exercises completely useless.
How to improve your eyesight – Eye Therapy
The two tenets of eye therapy is proper exercise of the eye itself and then making sure it gets the right amount of rest and relaxation. One without the other won’t produce any results at all, so make sure you use them in tandem.
You can use “palming” to great effect to boost your eyesight – this is as easy as warming up your hands by rubbing them together and then placing them over your closed eyes, trapping all light from getting in. This will give you a warm and healing boost to your vision, and will get the engines for repair started. This can take as little as a couple of minutes, but for best effect should probably be done for about 5 minutes periodically throughout your day.
You can also use a rapid blinking and then resting face, which will condition the lens of your eyes to work smoothly. Another great exercise is to move your head up and down slowly, as well as side to side, but making sure your eyes stay focuses on a single thing in the process. This will definitely boost the stamina of your eyes, but remember to do so at a somewhat steady and slower pace – rapid movement will overstrain and hurt your eyes.
Speaking of overstrain, the other mission critical aspect to eye therapy is to make sure that your eyes are getting enough rest and relaxation. Your body will need the proper amount of sleep for all of its repair and restorative functions, but it is equally important to make sure that your eyes get rest. If you can do palming throughout the day you’ll be on the right track, but you should also try to lessen the amount of exposure that you have with bright artificial lighting and computer and TV monitors.
