5 Best Ways To Improving Your Vision The Natural Way

5 Best Ways To Improving Your Vision The Natural Way

Vision is probably the most important gift for anyone. That is why eyes are considered the most important organs in our body. Their proper functioning has a direct bearing on our day-to-day productivity.

For this reason, keeping the eyes healthy for optimal vision is very essential. Over the years, scientists have developed several remedies for the purpose of improving sight but as it is widely accepted going natural when dealing with most health matters, is always the best solution. So what are some of the best natural solutions for improving vision?

1. Eating The Right Foods Rich in Vitamins and Antioxidants

According to research by the Harvard Medical school, antioxidants help the retina fight free radicals within it that are capable of destroying its cells while the anti-inflammatory properties of omega-3-fatty acids contribute towards improving the health of the Retina.

To get a generous amount of these nutrients, the research recommends a regular indulgence in food like fatty, coldwater fish, fruits, and vegetables that are yellow or orange in color and egg yolks.

“Constant migraines or the feeling of pressure behind the eyes are two tell-tale signs of a vision problem,” reports Globaleyeglasses.com.

This recommendation is informed by the fact that cold water fish like sardines, tuna, and salmon have high concentrations of the much-needed omega-3-fatty acids. While fruits and vegetables like carrots, oranges, and broccoli replenish the eyes with a supply of vitamins A, C, and E.

On the other hand, eggs provide the eyes with antioxidants that fight muscle degeneration which can easily lead to a loss of eyesight and impaired vision.

2. Eye Exercises That Improve vision

Quite often we work out the body to rejuvenate its functioning but have you ever imagined the same principles could apply to your eyes? Ophthalmology research done by the world renowned physician William Bates consistently showed that eye exercises could improve one’s vision by a significant degree.

Over the years, this line of thought led to the development of several exercises like palming, flexing, focusing, zooming and blinking. Palming involves capping your eyes and applying gentle pressure on them for brief sets of 10

seconds to enable them to relax and lubricate.

In addition to that, to achieve lubrication, you can continuously blink the eyes especially after long periods of staring at a computer screen or television.

Focusing and zooming involves setting eyes on an object close by and one that is far respectively, while flexing is stretching the eye muscles by moving the eyeballs up and down then to the far left and right edges of the eye socket.

3. Washing the Eyes Using Triphala Churna

A long held tradition practice in India which is now widely becoming popular is the use of Triphala powder, which is rich in antioxidants, to wash the eyes. Triphala Churna powder is made by grinding together extracts of three different herbs; the Chebulic Myrobalan, Berellic Myrobalan, and the Indian Gooseberry.

This routine can be your every morning practice and the procedure to execute it is very simple. Simply mix the powder with clean water to form a smooth mixture then let it stand overnight. In the morning filter the powder so that you remain with only the liquid which you can now use to wash your eyes.

This natural remedy has worked for many people over the years to not only strengthen the eye muscles but also counter glaucoma, cataracts, and conjunctivitis while improving impaired vision.

4. Getting Enough Rest After A long Day

Just like other parts of the body, the eyes get fatigued especially after one goes for many hours without rest, this is as observed by studies done by the East West Eye Institute concluding that fatigued eyes have a substantially weakened vision.

Commonly, tired eyes will manifest through eye spasm that comes with endless twitching of the eye which can just be overcome by adequate sleep. Lack of proper sleep will also make the eyes to dry as the eyes normally get extended periods of lubrication during rest for better vision.

Lastly, a good night rest will help prevent your eyes from straining due to exhaustion that intends to overwork the eye muscles with detrimental effects on proper vision.

5. Frequent Massaging Of The Eyes

The skin around the eyes is muscle tissue, and like all muscles, it can significantly benefit from a little massage done on the areas around the eyes. Frequently massaging of the skin around the eyes will improve your vision by helping to stimulate increased blood flow to the eyes for an all-round rejuvenation and functioning.

Simple circular massage motions around the eyes will also help fast track the draining of toxins from the eyes and release of tension on the eye muscles that can lead to eye straining.

With the eye being a critical organ for our everyday functioning, Stanford Medicine’s Retina Specialist Theodore Leng, recommends several measures that can help not only improve vision but keep the eye healthy.

He recommends regular medical examination of the eyes to be able to identify potential threats or note a disease that is developing. In addition to that, he suggests wearing protective work equipment in case your job makes your eyes susceptible to potential harm and finally keeping your body’s overall health in check as some diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels can impair vision to a high degree.

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

1. Smart Door Locks

A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics.

From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker.
