Natural Vision Correction is a method that may help out with less serious conditions, such as a Lazy Eye or diplopia also known as (Double Vision), as long as there is not a more serious underlying cause.
Although many Eye Diseases and conditions must be treated with professional help,
The concept of natural vision correction has been around for decades. This involves vision correction without any surgery or medication, or even Prescription Glasses.
The basic idea is that you can perform simple Eye Care Exercises to bring your vision back to normal.
The idea first came into the public eye in 1919 with the Bates Method for Better Eyesight Without Glasses, commonly referred to as simply the Bates Method.
He believed that most refractive errors, such as Myopia also known as “nearsightedness” or “short sightedness” and Hyperopia also known as "farsightedness" or "long sightedness", could be fixed by teaching the eyes to relax.
Natural vision correction is one of those methods that has plenty of positive testimonials from users but is not recognized professionally as a way to cure anything; you'll never find an Eye Care Professional or Eye Care Specialist recommending it. That's because even though individuals, even large groups of individuals, have claimed that it is effective, there are very few controlled scientific studies that test the theory.
Bates believed that glasses actually caused vision to deteriorate even further, as the eye wasn't put under any pressure to correct itself.
He actually stopped giving glasses prescriptions to his patients after he noticed that all of them continued to worsen over time. Glasses corrected the problem momentarily, but they did nothing to actually fix it.
One exercise is to look at something 20 feet away and focus your attention on it for 30 seconds. After looking at it straight on, turn your head so that you are looking at it through the right corners of your eyes.
Hold it in focus for 30 seconds again, and then repeat the process with your left side. Look directly up (without moving your head) and then look directly down (again, without moving your head).
These exercises are especially useful for preventing Eyestrain Caused by Computers. You should perform this short set of exercises once every 20 minutes.
Even though science may not officially recognize the Bates Method for natural vision correction, studies have proven that exercising your eyes in the way shown above can strengthen the muscles around your eyes, and it only stands to reason that the stronger your eyes are the better your vision will be (excluding diseases).
Your eyesight is extremely important, so you should take steps to Protect Your Eyesight from harm.
