However, very few people know that there is a natural alternative called a program of eye exercises that can help you improve your vision naturally without glasses. Therefore, many people are wondering why their eye doctor never told them about eye exercises as an alternative natural treatment for various vision conditions such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.

Vitamins For Better Vision - Why Vision Supplements Are Necessary

Some people find the topic related to taking vitamin supplements for better vision somewhat controversial. For instance, there is a school of thought in the traditional medical industry that states that nutritional supplements are unnecessary because of the belief that you can get all the nutrients you need from food alone. However, statistics show that 88-90% of Americans are not getting a sufficient amount of vitamins and minerals from food sources alone. Therefore, this is a flawed argument.

Therefore, here are some points that prove that vision supplements are a necessary aspect of your vision improvement program:

Current farming techniques that involve the use of fertilizers have led to a depletion in the nutrients of the soil. This has led t…

Is Vision A Learned Skill And Can It Be Improved With Eye Exercises?

One of the common myths that people believe, even though scientific evidence refutes it, is that vision problems and vision conditions in general are inherited. However, scientific evidence suggests that the opposite is true. For example, research shows that most people are born with healthy eyes and only 2% of the population is actually born with vision defects. Furthermore, vision is not a process that is automatic like breathing but it is a skill that we learn to develop. For instance, a new born infant in the beginning sees the world as a strange place and finds it difficult to make use of the various colors, shapes and objects that he sees. However, as that baby grows that baby begins to understand the relationship between himself and the environment around him. As his brain begins to develop he makes sense of his surroundings, the elements contained in that environment and how they relate to him.This particular skill was learned and did not become automatic. Therefore, vision is…
