Spending a lot of time on a computer, reading or watching TV, increases your chances for nearsightedness. This means you can not focus objects in the distance. The reason for this is that our eyes focus on objects in our immediate vicinity. And the computer screens certainly do not help.
If you think your vision will weaken or you already wear glasses, you should try these tips that will help you to improve your eyesight in a natural way.
How To Improve Your Eyesight Naturally
- Eat blueberries
Blueberry is the best and most beneficial plant for strengthening your vision and the results should be visible within a month of taking these berries. Blueberries improve blood circulation in the eyes but also serve as an antioxidant against free radicals that can damage the them
You can find blueberry extract in stores, which is a more concentrated form of extract. Anything that contains 100 mg of extract will give you good results.
Important: Research has shown that milk kills the usefulness of herbal extracts, so it is best to take them on an empty stomach.
- Avoid sugary food
Food that contains too much sugar is not so good for your health as well as for your vision. The more sugar you eat, the more damage you do to your eyes. Sugar comes in natural and artificial forms, and usually, you can find it in food that has a lot of carbohydrates such as in bread. Sugar in large quantities also comes in fruit juices (for exp. in apple or orange juice).
- Rest your eyes
Your eyes become red from stress due to long-term staring at the computer screen, and this thing causes problems with your vision. That’s why you should rest your eyes daily. Here’s what you need to do: first, remove the makeup, and soak a towel in cold water. Then, lie down, put the towel on your eyes and relax. The cold towel will shrink your blood vessels, and give your eyes a break that will allow them to regain moisture. You can also put slices of cucumber on your eyes that will give the same effect as the cold towel.
Blinking relaxes the eye muscles after a long-term viewing of TVs, mobile phones, computers, and long book reading. When you blink the eyeballs naturally get moisture. For this reason, blinking acts refreshing for your eyes and it’s also good for your vision.
