Okay, now you are here to know the methods to improve your eyesight, right? Well in general what are the two main factors that influence a healthy body?
#1. Is what you eat
#2. Is how active are you. Meaning, are you exercising enough to keep your body fit?
Improve your eyesight – What you eat
In order to have healthy eyes, eat foods that are rich in vitamin A – carotenoids, lutein, zeaxanthin, beta carotene and lycopene such as collard greens, broccoli, carrots, beetroots, corn, green peas, kale, romaine lettuce, spinach, turnip greens, zucchini and egg yolks. Fruits such as Papaya, blueberries, bilberries and apricots. Also cold-water fish such as tuna, cod, salmon, haddock & sardines.
Our body converts beta carotene to vitamin A when needed. This is an important antioxidant that resists oxidative stress which otherwise would damage cells and tissues, including eye lenses.
Continued oxidative stress might result in cataracts or damage the blood supply to the eyes.
So remember, healthy foods lead to healthy eyes
Improve your eyesight – With simple eye exercises
Vision improves drastically with eye exercises. Even 15 minutes a day to do them would be fair enough for a healthy eye. So what are they?
1. Relax yourself and your eyes with this simple exercise. Sit comfortably and close your eyes and cover them with your both palms. Imagine you are seeing utter darkness or black. Relax for 30 seconds and then open your eyes. Repeat.
2. Close your eyes and gently rub them with hands in circular motion. You should take care not to apply pressure while doing this.
3. Now open your eyes roll them clockwise for a few seconds and then in anti-clockwise direction. Now move them up and then down, go left and then right. Repeat.
4. With a pencil/pen, mark two dots on a a white paper side to side with a distance say 5 cm between them. Now move the paper towards your eye until the two dots merge together. Repeat.
