EyeSight Vision Care, Issue #007 -- New Research Proves That Bad Vision Is Not Genetic
July 10, 2007
|What we feed our bodies feeds our eyes.
Many of the vitamins and minerals in our bodies are found in much higher concentrations in our eyes, so a diet lacking in these vitamins and minerals can lead to vision problems as we grow older.
Take the time every day to give your eyes (and the rest of your body) the nutritive support they need.
Eat the foods and take the supplements that provide the antioxidant vitamins and minerals your eyes require.
You’ll Protect Your Eyesight, ensuring years of good eye health, and increasing the odds that you’ll avoid blindness or vision loss for the rest of your life.

New Research Proves That Bad Vision Is Not Genetic.
I'll never forget the day my optometrist told me, "You'll never have perfect vision.
Bad vision is genetically preprogrammed and there is nothing you can do about it."
I tried to find the optometrist who told me that many years ago and shattered my dream of flying fighter jets in the U.S. Navy, but I never was able to locate him.
I wanted to show him 3 things:
*My test results from the U.S. Navy that said "Left eye = 20/30, right eye 20/20," after just one month of using the Vision for Life program.
*My FAA medical examination that said "Overall vision = 20/20: No restrictions required."
*The letter I received from the U.S. Navy that said "Pilot Candidate: ACCEPTED."
After the amazing results I achieved with the Vision for Life program, I searched for an explanation.
In my research, I came across the following:
There was a controlled study conducted on a group of Inuit families in Barrow, Alaska, years ago by a very respected group of eye doctors.
It evaluated the relation between genetics and the environment in bad vision.
It was an ideal setting in that parents and grandparents had little or no formal education, while children regularly attended public school.
The study results showed that the uneducated parents and grandparents had little or no form of myopia (nearsightedness), while nearly 58% of the children attending school were diagnosed as myopic.
A genetic malfunction increase of 58% over one generation would be impossible!
The researchers came to the conclusion that the stress put upon the eyes while performing continuous near-point work in the classroom was causing myopia among the children.
(Young et al. 1969. American Journal of Optometry and Archives of American Academy of Optometry)
So what causes nearsightedness if it's not genetic?
Science has also answered this question.
It's a condition called near-point stress. Near-point stress is what your eyes experience when you focus on anything close to you: computers, books, television, etc. Focusing up close is not natural to your eyes.
Your eyes are in a relaxed state when they are looking at a distance and focusing up close puts a stress on them.
The American Optometric Association identifies near-point stress as being one of the leading causes of nearsightedness and its progression: see their Web site at http://www.aoa.org/x1786.xml.
I find this amazing, considering many doctors, like mine, will still tell you that nearsightedness is solely a genetic condition!
It just doesn't add up.
*How have thousands of people improved their vision naturally if bad vision is a genetic problem?
*Why is near-point stress defined as a leading cause of nearsightedness if nearsightedness is a genetic condition?
The fact is, the data is in, and times and beliefs are changing.
There are many eye doctors that now support eye exercises and their role in natural vision improvement.
You can learn these eye exercises and vision improvement techniques in the Vision for Life program.
It's all you need to begin reversing the damage that has been done to your eyes.
Whether you're nearsighted, have an astigmatism, or have "aging eyes," there is a customized program specifically for your condition included in the Vision for Life program.
More and more people every day are choosing the Vision for Life program as their method of vision improvement
