You can begin it at any time, from early childhood to old age.
You may be able to correct your vision in the space of a few minutes or it may require many weeks.
The length of time will depend on the seriousness of your eye condition, on your powers of visualization, and on the manner in which you perform your drills and exercises.
A Couple Basic Eye Exercises You Can Do Right Now:
- Start by first removing your glasses. The less you wear your glasses, the better it will be for you in the long run. Whenever you put your glasses back on you are restoring the original refractive error, which the lenses were designed to fix in the first place.
If you have been wearing your glasses for a long period of time then at least begin by leaving them off for as long as you possibly can without feeling much discomfort.
Eye glasses correct the refractive error; they do not do anything to cure it. In fact, the longer you wear your glasses, the weaker your eyes will become.
Taking off your glasses for an extended period of time is the easiest exercise you can do to help your eye muscles.
- If you happen to be near-sighted you are going to have to devote more attention than folks who are far-sighted to your posture, which tends to be poor in myopes.
Always remember that your posture reflects an important bearing on the quality of your vision.
- If you happen to be cross-eyed, try reading with one eye patched, then alternate which eye is patched.
Put an eye patch over the good eye and read a couple pages with the bad eye; shift the patch to the bad eye and read one page with the good eye.
Then try removing the patch altogether and read a couple of pages with both eyes.
If you can follow this practice consistently, you will be on the right track to strengthen the weaker eye in addition to training them both to act as a team.
- At regular intervals, take a look at a chart or letter placed twenty feet in front of you and by concentrating your vision at the base of the letter, you will use the help of your imagination be able to see it more blacker than the other parts of the letter.
You’re doing this by closing the eyes at short intervals and by imagining that part of the letter darker.
- Go to a window and try to look at a distant object like the top of a tower, chimney or even the top of a tree.
Then look at the face of your wristwatch. Shift your eyes back and forth from the far-away object to the near one (i.e your watch).
Remember though, don`t look too hard at the distant object trying to make out every detail. Just give it quick, easy glances.
When you glance at your watch, however, focus on a single digit on the dial in order to encourage central fixation in your eye. Repeat this process ten to twelve times.
To sum it all up….
Apart from these eye exercises, it is important to develop healthy eye habits like naturally blinking.
Practice rapid shifting, particularly from near to far and seeing a small area at a time to encourage central fixation.
It is important to add that maintaining a proper diet is also important for eye health.
We are, after-all, a product of what we eat. A lack of any essential food or nutrient has its effect in the end upon weight, energy, and our ability to fight disease.
Specialty pharmaceuticals group pharmacy mcallen Shire just posted its first quarter earnings with an extremely strong increase in sales in their hyperactivity treatment group of medications especially in the US market.
In fact, they’re making about 19% more than they were this same time last year (keep in mind that's $972 million dollars).
Quoting one of their representatives:
“Sales of our ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) treatments INTUNIV, VYVANSE and ADDERALL XR were all up and the overall ADHD market in the US showed good growth.”
It seems like just another example of drugs being over-prescribed to me. “ohh, johnny didn’t do well on his test?
He probably has ADD, let’s talk to a doctor and get him some treatment.”
Meanwhile what little Johnny needs is less Xbox 360 and more studying.
Parents are now-a-days looking for quick fixes for just about everything and sadly this has become one of them.
Let’s keep in mind what we’re prescribing our kids shall we:
Adderall is just a version of amphetamine salts.
If you’re old enough it was probably called Dexedrine back when you first heard about it, but that’s just the medical prescription form that they had back then.
Even if you don’t remember Dexedrine, you surely remember what the drug called “speed” is right?
Think of it as a medically toned down version of the same stuff that is sold on street corners and first became popular by the beatnik generation (who’d usually inject it).
Now, back to Adderall, if you think just because it’s not Ritalin that it can’t be that bad you’re wrong.
These drugs were made to be a supplement to real treatment for their ADD/ADHD.
By that I mean behavioral treatment. It’s not just something you get prescribed and then forget about it until each month when you have to go refill the prescription, it’s something you treat with education on how to better train your brain to focus.
Whether that’s getting in the habit of taking excessive notes, using a stress ball or other one-handed object to occupy yourself as you engage in another task or any other of the hundreds of treatments that can easily be learned.
This isn’t alternative medicine I’m talking about.
No new-age, hippie, take some vitamin C and you’ll be fine stuff, this is actually how to treat ADD/ADHD.
Just think twice about having your child be prescribed any ADD/ADHD medicine.
You don’t want them to still be taking it 10 years from now…because I promise you not only will they have been affected negatively by the drug, they also will most likely be taking a dosage that's 4x higher due to a growth in tolerance.
