Home Remedies for Improving Eyesight
IMPROVE EYESIGHT
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/health-and-nutrition/22523-home-remedies-for-improving-eyesight.html
It's been said that 'Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder' but have you given any thought to those eyes which help you capture this beauty. By adopting various patterns of life we can give your eyes a much needed boost. Bringing changes in your lifestyle and in your eating habits will help you see your eyes in a new light.

Food and Diet
• Consuming good amount of apple and grapes helps in improving your eyesight.
• Vitamin A is very good for enhancing your eyesight. Carrots have good quantity of vitamin A which proves to be one of the useful natural treatments.
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/showthread.php?t=22523
• Cucumber juice does wonders for your eyesight as it tries to improve it immensely.
• Add spinach in your daily diet as Spinach contains iron, vitamin A, B and C. It purifies your blood, increases the hemoglobin and improves your eyesight.
• You can find good source of vitamin A in turnip, milk cream, fresh milk, cheese, butter, tomatoes, lettuce, cabbage, soya beans, green peas, oranges and dates.
• An ayurvedic medicine name Triphala is considered to work immensely in favor of your eyes.
• Consuming blueberry juice also considered to be very useful for your eyes.

Exercises
• Close both the eyes very tightly by shutting the lids firmly. Open them suddenly which allows you to feel the stretch. Once open arch your brows and stretch your face. Repeat this several times a day.
• Look as far as possible and inhale then look down as far as possible and exhale. Blink your eyes more than dozen times. Do the same procedure by turning to your left and right then diagonally up to left, down to right, up to right and down to left followed by rapid blinking.
• Rotate your eyes in all the directions. Slowly and steadily concentrate one eye at a time. Do this exercise more than dozen times and try doing this with your eyes shut.
• By using palming which can be stated as a revised version of the thousand-year- old yoga tradition known was Hatha Yoga. It relieves strain and stress from your mind and eyes which needs the required break. For this you have to warm your hands by rubbing them together vigorously. Once it's warm cover the eye without touching the eyelids. This relaxes the nerves and helps in blood circulation.
• You can also try sunning which means to use sun's light for your eyes. Move your head from side to side for the heat to benefit the eyes. After a while try stretching the eyes to allow more sunlight to your eyes. Directly looking at the sun is never good. It is great method to reduce light sensitivity.
• Perform Netra Basti which is bathing your eyes with clarified butter to reduce eye strain and to improve eyesight.

Re: Home Remedies for Improving Eyesight

All Jio,
The following steps can help too: • Lower your computer screen so that the centre of the screen is 4-8 inches below your eye level and at a viewing distance of 20-28 inches.

• Use a document holder placed next to your computer screen. It should be close enough so you don’t have to swing your head back and forth or constantly change your eye focus.

• Change your lighting to lower glare and harsh reflections. Using Glare filters over your computer screen can also help.
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/showthread.php?t=22523

• If you are seated in a draught or near an air vent, try to change your seating or position and direct the draught away from your eyes.
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/showthread.php?t=22523

• Low humidity or fumes aggravate a dry eye condition.


• And even it would be better if you wash your eyes thrice to six times a day

• Concentrate on blinking whenever you begin to sense symptoms of dry or irritated eyes. Your eyes will start burning if you don’t. Blinking is a like a refresh button on the computer. Take breaks in between long sessions.

• Use artificial tears as recommended by your doctor to re-wet and lubricate your eyes.

• Take frequent breaks. Follow the 20-20-20 rule. This simply means every 20 minutes, look away beyond 20 feet and blink 20 times.

As an eye professional I can tell you that the exercises detailed above aren't really going to help. If eye exercises will help, your optometrist can advise you which will help. Carrots are good but not the best for your eyes. Omega 3 oils found in fish and a range of nuts are very good for helping with dry eye, especially related to computer use or contact lens use or age related. Spinach is actually the best food for you and other green leafy vegetables and eggs as they contain lutein and zeaxanthin. These are pigments naturally found in the eye and have a protective role against AMD (age related macular degeneration). In some people over 50, AMD can cause untreatable vision loss which is quite devastating so incorporate as much spinach in your diet as you can!!! A number of medications can also cause dry eye problems. Your eyecare practitioner can advise you of this if you are having any problems
