Hello! So i have  a question. Is there any way I can be able to fix my eye sight? My both eyes are 0.75. I went to eye doctor, and she said, that there are some of the excercises to children and teens, under age 16. I am 23 now. She said that there is pretty much no solution, except contact lenses or glasses.

My father spoke of his friend, that used book/video lessons, that excrecises eye muscles. This book was written by russian author, named Norbekov or something like that. He states, that low eyesight is only eye muscle "lazyness" if you will. That friend of his, used this lessons and in time, he managed to play tennis without eyeglasses, when he used to play all the time wearing it.

So that puts me in a very confusing position, which I dont know what to believe: eyedoctor or internet. Eye doctor states there is nothing I can do, and the internet states that there is something I can do.

DO you have any suggestions, or excercises, that have proven itself worthy to you guys? Maybe some food supplement? I heard that carrots are good for my eyes.

    We are all different and our eyes are precious. If you think that reading a book on exercises to improve your vision will benefit you I would discuss the technique with your Optician. There are certain problems that we inherit that we have no control over that affect our vision like Diabetes.

    Wearing glasses is not a problem and Contact Lenses can be worn for sport activities.

    So my advice exercise the eye it can do no harm, but not taking advice from a professional who understands eyes would be dangerous in the long term.

    As far as I know there have been no randomised trials to test the effectiveness of eye exercise programmes and there is no medical evidence to support the claims made.

    There is some evidence that Lutein and zeaxanthin (commonly found in kale and spinach - or via supplements) can help improve eyesight. Carrots are not particularly high in these compounds.

      I have read about various exercises on certain web sites but never read any thing where some one tried some exercises and benefitted. Hence, it appears safe not to undertake exercise venture and follow the advice of eye Docs.

      i have early Glaucoma for which some exercises appeared on U Tube. I did try these for 2-3 days but left them apprehending more harm than good.
