Sunning is one of the best relaxation techniques for your eyes. Don't, however, open your eyes and look directly into the sun.

Today, more than ever, inappropriate response to stress is being cited as a primary cause of many ailments that plague modern humanity. Whether it's caused by environmental, cultural, or psychological factors, anxiety can lead to a great number of mental and physical problems. Indeed, recent research indicates that stress is a major contributing factor in disorders of the eye as well.

Such findings can have wide-ranging implications. After all, at least half of the population in the United States currently wears prescription glasses or contact lenses. Furthermore, possibly as many as 70% of Americans have visual problems of which they're not even aware. In a sense, you might say that good eyesight is no longer normal!

Yet, very few folks are born with visual abnormalities. For the most part, defective eyesight is acquired. If that's so, can poor vision be corrected? According to studies done by Dr. William H. Bates, a distinguished New York ophthalmologist who pioneered in the field of visual training, you can dramatically improve your eyesight naturally, without glasses or contact lenses!

What is Visual Training?

In the past, most vision experts worked from the theory that the eye is able to focus on varying distances solely because it can change the shape of its lens, and that most seeing problems are due to a permanent deformation of the eyeball and lens. However, contrary to these widely held beliefs, Dr. Bates's research has indicated that the whole eye, not merely the lens, adapts itself to focusing by means of the muscles of the eyeball. When habitual tension and strain tighten them, then, a sight dysfunction may occur, and teaching these uptight muscles to relax, through a program of visual training eye exercises, can remedy many seeing disorders.

It should be noted here that few eye professionals support this theory, and even fewer offer visual training to their patients. Most eye specialists continue merely to prescribe the wearing of corrective lenses for refractory errors, which—in effect—encourages the eyes to maintain abnormal vision by allowing them to become permanently adjusted to a constant degree of error.

Practitioners of the visual training method suggest, however, that a person gradually decrease the amount of time spent wearing corrective lenses during the day, and that fundamental eye exercises be performed (without wearing glasses or contacts) to lessen dependency on mechanical aids.

Eat carrots, they are filled with vitamin A, which helps your eyes. Do eye exercises such as rolling your eyes, looking down, up, side to side.

Recently my sister told me about this amazing book that claims to teach you how to exercise your eyes so that they will naturally see 20/20 again http://tinyurl.com/repairedvision-101 I do all exercises everyday for about 15 minutes and I noticed that I can read and drive without glasses just after 2 weeks... I just took an eye test for my drivers license and passed without a problem. I don't do all of the exercises but I'm always conscious of ways to practice during my daily routine. It works.
