How to Improve Your Vision

People who have advanced eye disease have waited too long to improve their vision health. Keeping the eyes health is a lifetime endeavor. An unhealthy lifestyle and poor nutrition lead to a higher risk of eye diseases. Researchers have linked cataracts, macular degeneration, glaucoma, optic neuropathy, retinal vein occlusions, and other eye conditions to mostly-controllable risk factors. Seniors are especially at risk. Natural Eye Care offers this guide to improving vision health.

Exercise for the Body

Daily exercise is key to vision health. The American Medication Association recommends walking briskly for 30 minutes per day at the least. Even this very modest amount of exercise increases lifespan and improves overall health.

Exercise is important throughout life. However, as people age, a sedentary lifestyle catches up with them. Weight gain, poor muscle tone, and lack of flexibility reduce quality and length of life. Heart disease and diabetes are very real threats. Exercise has been shown to improve vision health.1

A complete workout routine is best. You need cardio (aerobic exercise), strength training, and stretching. Even the least expensive fitness centers offer all three. Seniors often qualify for a discount. Plan on working out 3 to 5 times per week. People over age 50 should do strength training only twice per week, as their muscle builds more slowly. Work out with a buddy, or on your way to a coffee break. Owning a dog requires outdoor exercise.

Exercise Your Eyes

Only six small muscles control each of your eyes. If these muscles are weak, strained or misused, the eyes do not work properly. A few daily eye exercises keep these tiny muscles strong. This can help prevent myopia, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Eye exercises also relieve eye strain from screen time and reading. Eye exercises improve circulation, bringing more nutrients to the eyes. Ageing individuals need gentle exercise of all muscle groups to help maintain their health.

Go Outdoors

Outdoor activities expose you to fresh air and sunshine. Sunlight activates ATP in the mitochondria, giving you more energy. When sunlight hits your eyes, your brain produces chemicals that make you wakeful and alert. Sunlight improves mood. Your body manufactures Vitamin D with just 10 minutes of sunlight exposure. Outdoor activity and sunlight may protect against myopia.

On the other hand, people are living longer and the atmospheric gasses have changed. Sunlight contains ultra-violet A, ultraviolet B, and blue light. These wavelengths of light damage the eye over time. As we age, the eye’s lens develops cataracts, which act like natural sunglasses. Unfortunately, cataracts dull colors and obstruct vision, eventually possibly leading to legal blindness if untreated. Natural eye drops and supplements have the potential of managing and even reversing cataracts in the early stages. However, cataract surgery is the only medical treatment. UV radiation and blue light also harm the retina, leading some people to develop macular degeneration.

Oxidative stress and free radicals from sunshine wreak havoc on eyes, though eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly and taking targeted supplement can go a long way in neutralizing free radical activity, reducing the risk of macular degeneration and maintaining healthy vision.

Plan on spending time outdoors every day. After about 10 minutes, put on quality sunglasses — see our sunglasses guide.

Better Screen Habits

Computers, TVs, tablets, games, and smartphones are modern miracles. However, they are not miracles for our vision. On the contrary, an epidemic of eye disease and conditions could be on the horizon from excessive screen time.

LCD screens expose the eye to blue light. Blue light has been proven to damage the retina. Many people hold screens close to the face or at less-than-arm’s-length. Close-up focusing for extended periods weakens the eyes’ muscles and causes eye strain and headaches.
