How to Deal with Eyesight Problems

 

Unfortunately many people as they age begin to suffer from eyesight problems. These problems can include Myopia or Presbyopia. Many people also begin to suffer from eye conditions such as cataracts or macular degeneration.

The first reaction when we notice deterioration in our eyesight is often to make an appointment to see an ophthalmologist. However there are other less costly solutions. Research carried out has shown that the majority of eye problems are actually caused by muscle strain in the eyes. In fact thousands upon thousands of people have actually remedied their eyesight problems by undertaking exercises which eliminate muscle strain and relax the muscles.

By purchasing a pair of pinhole glasses you can actually take the first step to improving your vision. Pinhole glasses relax your eye muscles by eliminating the scattering of light on the retina. They also cut out peripheral vision which can be extremely tiring for the eyes.

Another way of addressing eye problems is to follow the Bates Method. The Bates Method is a series of easy to follow exercises designed by the pioneering ophthalmologist, William Bates. Following years of research William Bates discovered that glasses can actually make your vision worse, and that there is an easier way to correct vision problems.

His exercises work by relaxing the eye muscles which in turn eliminates eye strain and allows the eyes to heal. Of course in order to work, these exercises need to be followed on a daily basis at the beginning. Bates also stressed the importance of diet for eye health and believed that many eye problems were also caused by an unhealthy diet.

He advocated using the Snellen Eye Card, to chart eye progress whilst carrying out the exercises. This enables you to assess the progress that has been made with your eyesight problems.
