How Can I Improve Eyesight?

Unfortunately with age many among us experience deterioration in vision. This leads a number of us to ask the question, ‘How is it possible to improve eyesight.’ Of course some people may reply, ‘go and see an optician and get glasses.’ There are however, easier and more natural ways of improving your vision.

Firstly you should have a good look at your diet. There are a number of foods which are particularly good for your eyes and hence your level of vision. These include foods such things as spinach, kale and other leafy green vegetable, which are rich in lutein. Lutein is a yellow pigment which protects the macula part of the eye.

Foods which contain beta carotene, such as carrots and red peppers also have an extremely beneficial effect on the health of the eyes. Fruits such as berries and particularly bilberries are a wonderful sauce of nutrition. In fact during the Second World War, British pilots reported a beneficial effect on night vision after eating bilberry jam. Also essential fatty acids are important. Fish such as salmon and sardines are rich in essential fatty acids.

Natural Exercises such as the Bates exercises which involve relaxing the muscles of the eye are effective ways of improving vision on a long term basis. Those who have practiced these exercises have stated that they are not only effective in helping conditions such as short sightedness and long sightedness, but also other more serious conditions such as Glaucoma and Macular Degeneration.

One of the great advantages of the Bates Exercises is that they are inexpensive and safe exercises. Of course if you do decide to choose the Bates exercise method as a way to improve eyesight you will need to take some time to read about this exercise method and also be motivated to dedicate some time each day to carry out these exercises.
