How can we improve our vision?
The usual method to correct faulty vision is by wearing prescribed glasses. But, some people have claimed that this would not improve vision, i.e. not solving the root of the problem.
The first person to publicly spread this message was William Bates of the 1900's. To him, wearing glasses merely makes our faulty vision more persistent. Just as over-strained muscles could improve, our eye can improve with the use of routine eye exercises.
Bates and others after him have designed other methods specially for specific eye disorders e.g. myopia. Their aim is to enable patients to use weaker glasses and eventually not to use glasses altogether.
However, some eye specialists have criticized these methods.
Of course, it is best for you to find a good opthalmologist and ask for a suitable improvement method which matches your eye condition.
There are some health food for the eyes in both Chinese and Western dishes.
Still, there is no substitute for provision of adequate rest to the eyes.
