Eyes are one the most sensitive parts of our body. They work from the very moment we wake up till we go to sleep. No one can adequately measure the value of sight; but when we feel it failing we can in some degree realize what that value is.
Over the last 10 – 15 years there has been a marked increase in the number of people who wear glasses and contact lenses. This can be put down to drastically increased computer usage both at home and at work, and increased television watching. More than 50 percent of computer users experience eyestrain, headaches, blurred vision and other visual symptoms related to sustained use of the computer. This type of stress on the visual system can also cause body fatigue and reduced efficiency at work.
Eye exercises to improve vision not only work but can lead to remarkable improvement in your eyesight. Although most people will never question the need to wear glasses or contact lenses, there are many techniques you can use to not only improve your eyesight but help restore 20/20 vision. Is it really possible? Over 100 years of research and results worldwide has thrown the need for corrective lenses out the window.
Although not all vision problems can be fixed naturally, a vast majority of vision problems such as being short or far sighted or both can be cured naturally.
It’s important to know that today there are more people requiring corrective lenses, contacts or opting for expensive and risky surgery than ever before. What has caused this dramatic increase in poor vision? Our daily lifestyles!
Some of the most common causes for poor eyesight is a result of our lifestyle both work and play. Computers and televisions have played a critical role in the effects of our eyesight and vision.
