If you are looking for a way to improve your eyesight then you might want to try a combination of drinking raw juices and doing eye exercises. This type of integrated therapy has been known to improve eyesight that is failing due to temporary trauma and natural aging.
Steps To Having Better Eyesight
The first thing you should do is buy a functional juicer. Be sure to choose one that does not waddle across the counter when turned on. The best ones are easier to clean. You should be able to get a decent juicer for under 100 dollars.
Your next step is to make yourself a cocktail of fresh juices from items that have been proven to be good for the eyes. You create a fresh juice cocktail for the eyes out of any of the following eye friendly fruits for a sweet treat: watermelon, oranges, cherries, blueberries, goji berries, acai berries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, lingonberries, Indian goose berries, mangosteens, pomegranates, melons of all kind, apricots, plums and apples.
If a savoury juice is more your style then try making an “vision power” cocktail out of any of the following: carrots, spinach, beets, green leafy lettuce, kale, onions, garlic, rosemary, oregano, thyme and tomato.
A wonderful eye-friendly smoothie to make is simply a blend of ice, canned pumpkin and milk. The pumpkin is rich in A and everything else the eye needs and the milk has protein, all of the B vitamins and Vitamin D.
Eye Exercises for Better Vision
The eye exercises that you should do every day need not be that complicated. A simple, but effective one is to take your arm and extend your forefinger. Keep your eyes on your finger as you draw it back so that your forefinger tip is touching your nose. Do this five times or so to increase depth perception and improve your ability to focus.
Another great eye exercise to do every day – just simply close your eyes and rotate your eyeballs. Rotate them clockwise in a circle five times and then do the same thing with both eyes in the opposite (counter-clockwise) direction.
A very simple but effective exercise is to focus on an object intently and then let your vision relax so that everything goes out of focus for twenty seconds. Do this five times over and over again for best results.
If you are over age forty and wondering how to improve eyesight it may take a little longer for you to see effects from your juicing and exercises efforts as you might be suffering from hardening of the eye lens. This can make it more difficult to retrain the eye to see and other kinds of vision correction may be necessary to help you see better.
