How to Cure short-sighted : Myopia

Improving Myopia Naturally

Myopia is defined as nearsighted. This means you can focus better on near objects such as when reading than on distant objects. The conventional treatment is to prescribe glasses that tend to become stronger every one to two years. The following are some home exercises designed to help reduce the progression of myopia.

BREATHE: as in yoga the importance of good breathing is essential to getting the most out of your exercises. As you look around your world become aware of when you are holding your breath. Breathing regularly will bring more oxygen to your eyes and reduce stress on your vision.

BLINK: remembering to blink will help you from staring and working too hard as you do your exercises. It will also soothe, and moisturize the eyes.

PALMING: This exercise is done without any glasses or contact lenses. Palming is done to reduce stress around the eyes, by placing your palms around your eyes you are stimulating very powerful acupuncture points which help to calm the mind, relax the muscles around the eyes and bring healing energy to the eyes (through increased circulation).

Remember to breathe. Take two deep breaths.
Find a flat table to sit at, lean forward, place your elbows on the table, and close your eyes gently.
Now, place the palm of your left hand over your left eye, your fingers on your forehead, and the hollow of your palm directly over the eye, but not touching it. There is still room to blink. The heel of your hand rests on the cheekbones.
Then place the other hand over the other eye with the fingers crossing over the fingers from the other hand. The palm should be over the eye and the heel of the hand resting on the cheekbones.
Make sure your elbows are low enough so that your face and the weight of your head is resting in your palms so that there is no stress on the neck.
Palming gives you the opportunity not to try to see, but to just focus on relaxing your mind and eyes simultaneously. Even though we recommend that you do this for only three minutes, palming can be done for as little or as much as you like throughout the day as a way to relax your eyes and calm down from the tensions of daily life.

This exercise increases the flexibility of your eye muscles in a relaxed way.

Remember to breathe. Take two deep breaths.
Either stand or sit with your feet shoulder width apart with your hands at your sides. Do not cross your hands. Let your knees bend slightly.
Imagine a figure eight approximately ten feet from you lying horizontally (lying in the shape of an infinity sign)
Let your eyes trace along the figure eight without moving your head. First trace in one direction, then in the opposite direction. Always remember to continue to breathe and blink as your eyes move effortlessly along the figure eight. Check for tension in the jaw and let it release.

This exercise is done to improve the flexibility of the inside muscles of your eyes (called the ciliary muscles). It is important to keep those muscles flexible.

Remember to breathe. Take two deep breaths.
Either stand or sit with your feet, shoulder width apart. If you are standing make sure your knees are slightly bent.
Aim your eyes on any target in the distance.
While looking at your distant target bring your index fingers, tips touching about eight inches in front of your eyes and into your line of sight.
Still aiming your eyes at the distant target calmly notice a mini hot dog has appeared between the tips of your fingers. Remember to continue to breathe easily and deeply. Do not let the awesome beauty of the mini hot dog to distract you and to cause you to aim your eyes directly at it. Continue to aim your eyes towards the distant target.
Pull the tips of your fingers apart slightly and observe the hot dog floating in the air.
Now keep the hot dog for two breaths, then look directly at your fingers and the hot dog will disappear. Do not retrieve the hot dog for two breaths; then look again in the distance and find it once again. Switch back and forth for two minutes.

Other Tips to cure myopia
Myopia can be cured through wearing eye glasses(does not actually cure), contact lenses or refractive surgery.
Depending on your condition, your doctor may require you to wear your eye glasses or contact lenses all the time or only during times you require distance vision like when playing sports, driving or sitting at the back of the classroom during a lecture. If you have Myopia, the doctor will prescribe you a negative number. The higher the value of the number is, the stronger the lenses.
If you want your Myopia to be cured ASAP then opt for refractive surgery. This procedure can reduce and even eradicate your need for corrective eye glasses or contacts.
