The White Death
How can I improve my eyesight?
I'm doing a Uniformed Public Services course at College and I really want to become a firefighter. I've read lots of books on becoming a firefighter and they all say that excellent vision is imperative and some of the time when I look at things a long distance away they get blurred.

Is there any natural ways of improving my eyesight?

Thanks in advance

I think brain exercise is the way forward for that.
eyes are loosely connected to the part of our brain in response to our reactions which is why so of us can focus our eyes in on something and stare blankly when we wish to think..

Its all part of our neurology and learning is important.
Read important books do many puzzles and stare optical illusions until you can see clearly.
I do in fact have bad eyes myself but I find sleeping more and eating a good diet along with brain training helps me see somewhat better also if you are thinking your eyesight is bad get a second opinion from NHS if you are from the UK and your local Opticion. I would not recommend surgery cause it brings problems as I have read and thins the eye tissue making it weaken over time.

Don't come on the computer. :)

Don't use the computer a lot (especially with contacts!), eat carrots and eat fish. :) Fish is actually for the brain, but whatever, lol. :P :)

Make sure you don't strain your eyes so wear glasses if they have been recommended. Don't use the computer too much and look up a lot if you do.

macu shield its a new non prescription food supliment that coming on the market its really to prevent amd (macular degeneration) but studies have proven that it improves people's vision you should look it up on google. i work in an opticians and we are going to start selling it.

Eat anything with Vitamin A, Omega 3's, Lutein, and eat lots of green veggies!

eat fish liver oil , it's supposed to help your eyes and have a good eyes massage as well ! plenty of rest

yea, listen to 'antwana' there

look up the bates method on google

why natural? try wearing glasses or contacts or even get laser eye surgery or something.

lateral thinking puzzles, reading and brain stimulating activities, so like creative things, do not watch tv or star at a computer screen for to long

Ok because you are short sighted you can have the procedure to correct you vision at a local clinic it should cost about £500.
Good luck.

I have read :- The eye iris is a muscle and as such needs exercise, so I reckon that a walk in the countryside looking around as you proceed should give lots of the necessary exercise your eyes would need, especially if you did this for a few hours a day for several weeks, the walking would tone up your body at the same time which would be a gain even if the eye exercises did not work.

Aim High!
carrots- my dad always buys them and makes us eat them especially me as i sometimes have difficulty seeing and guess what i eat carrots and them have made my eye sight stronger and i don't have to wear glasses !

You can exercise the muscles in your eye which focus your vision. Sit at a window with a long view. Alternate from focusing near (inside), then middle distance (front lawn) then far distance. It is no different than doing chin-ups.

It takes time, and the effect is small. People who work at a computer screen, or do paperwork all day, are supposed to change their focal length every now and then, so the muscles don't atrophy.

carrots lots of em
then of course there is termites but thats just out of the question..lol

'Palming.' To rest and relax your eyes, sit comfortably in front of a table, resting your elbows on a stack of cushions high enough to bring your palms easily to your eyes without stooping forward or looking up. Close your eyes and cover them with your cupped palms to exclude light, avoiding pressure on the sockets. Breathe slowly and evenly, relaxing and imagining deep blackness. Begin by doing this for 10 minutes, two or three times a day.

'Swinging.' Relax and keep the eyes mobile. Stand up and focus on a distant point, swaying gently from side to side. Repeat 100 times daily, blinking as you sway. Blinking cleans and lubricates the eyes, which is especially important if you spend a lot of time in front of a computer.

'Colour day.' You may be asked to have a 'colour day.' Choose a colour and look out for it throughout the day. When you see it, be aware of the colour rather than the form. For example, if it's a red truck, experience the shade of red, not the truck.

'Sunning' Try to do this once a day. It requires a sunny day, or a good desk lamp with an incandescent bulb. The exercise is simple. Close your eyes. Look directly at the sun through
your closed eyes. While facing the sun, slowly rotate your head from side to side as far as you can.
This gets the sunlight on the peripheral vision, and it helps bring more blood circulation to your neck. Do this for 3 to 5 minutes. It's amazing, even on a cold day, how warm the sun feels on your eyes.
take off your glasses or contact lenses, you will then feel more comfortable and relaxed.

When doing the exercises, intensely concentrate on your eyes. Feel them working and coming to life again!

Do them on a regular basis, e.g. ideally 3 times a day. The results will be better

Eating carrots can also inprove them Cold water fish (sardines, cod, mackerel, tuna.) Cold water fish are an excellent source of DHA, which provides structural support to cell membranes, and is recommended for dry eyes, treatment for macular degeneration, and sight preservation.

Spinach, kale and green leafy vegetables. These plants are rich in carotenoids, especially lutein and zeaxathin. Lutein, a yellow pigment, protects the macula from sun damage and from blue light.

Eggs. Eggs are rich in cysteine, sulfur, lecithin, amino acids and lutein. Sulfur-containing compounds protect the lens of the eye from cataract formation.

Garlic, onions, shallots and capers This items are also rich in sulfur, which is necessary for the production of glutathione, an important antioxidant for the lens of the eye, and the whole body.

Soy Low in fat, rich in protein, soy has become a staple in vegetarian diets. Soy contains essential fatty acids, phytoestrogens, vitamin E and natural anti-inflammatory agents.

Fruits and vegetables Our mothers always told us about these -- they were right. Fruits and vegetables contain vitamin A, C, and E and Beta-carotene. The yellow vegetables, such as carrots and squash, are important for daytime vision.

Blueberries and grapes These foods contain anthocyanins, which improve night vision. A cup full of blueberries, huckleberry jam, or a 100 mg bilberry supplement should improve dark adaptation within 30 minutes.

Wine Wine, known to have a cardioprotective effect, has many important nutrients, which protect vision, heart and blood flow. Needless to say, moderation is always important.

Nuts and berries These are nature's most concentrated food sources. Grains, such as flaxseed, are high in the beneficial Omega-3 fatty acids, which help lower cholesterol and stabilize cell membranes.

Virgin olive oil This is a mono-unsaturated oil, and is a healthy alternative to butter and margarine.
