Why Eye Exercises?

Are you tired of wearing eyeglasses or contact lenses? Is your vision deteriorating? Can eye exercises really correct eyesight?

If you have vision problems, eye exercises can benefit, just like physical exercises benefiting the body and the mind. Like physical exercises, eye exercises may not cure or heal your eye problems, but they certainly can improve your vision health , Natural healing always takes time, especially natural vision self-healing.

Although eye exercises can improve vision, many are unwilling to try them. For one thing, many are still skeptical about the body’s capability to heal itself. For another, many consider poor vision a handicap rather than a physical disorder that needs to be addressed; to many, given that their poor vision can easily be fixed with eyeglasses or contacts, so why bother with eye exercises to correct vision? Indeed, many people would prefer a quick-fix rather than the tedious and troublesome eye exercises.

Without a doubt, natural vision improvement through eye exercises takes time. Eye exercises are instrumental in both relaxing and strengthening eye muscles in order to correct eyesight.

However, practicing eye exercises has to be diligent and consistent. In addition, it is recommended that you stop wearing glasses or contacts as much as possible in order to facilitate the healing process. That means you must get yourself accustomed to blurry vision around you as a result of not wearing your eyeglasses or contact lenses. In addition, you must not strain to see clearly when your vision is blurry. The only promise is that you will see clearly only when your vision improves, and not before. All these pre-conditions may turn many away from the use of eye exercises to correct their vision.

According to Dr. William Bates (1860 - 1931), the founder of natural vision improvement, poor vision is the result of eyestrain, due to mental and physical stress on the eye, and hence the distortion of the eye shape, leading to nearsightedness and farsightedness. Dr. Bates strongly believed that eye relaxation holds the key to improving vision. Given that vision health is holistic health, which means it includes the health of the body, the mind, and the spirit as well, the eye exercises recommended by Dr. Bates may help only partially to correct eyesight. Eye relaxation begins with the mind first, not the eye. The mind must be completely relaxed before it can relax the body—and then the eye, which is only one of the many organs of the body. That is to say, eye exercises can relax the eye only when the body is also completely relaxed. You can relax the body and the mind through guided meditation.

That said, eye exercises in conjunction with bodywith body and mind relaxation can indeed improve and correct eyesight. You have nothing to lose, even if you cannot completely dispense with your eyeglasses or contact lenses—at least your vision may not deteriorate any further with age. The bottom line: wearing eyeglasses or contacts will never improve your vision; they will only make it worse, not better.

If you really want to improve vision, go for eye exercises. If, on the other hand, you want a quick-fix, maybe you should go for eyeglasses or contact lenses. The choice is yours. Remember, if you do not want vision self-healing, you may not want self-healing in other health problems that you may have—you may end up being another victim of the sickness industry, which also includes the optical companies.
