Ok my sight is not the best. i don't have my glasses on right now because I just got out of the shower, however, if there is anyone out there who knows anything about eyesight please help. I would really like to be able to see better. I heard about Lasik eye surgery, is it expensive, does insurance cover it? Is there anyone out there who has had it done? Tell me your story. Not only that but I would like to know if there is any vitamins or fruits or vegetables that I could eat to help my eyesight get better. I know that carrots is subbosedly used to prevent eyesight from going bad, but I tore up some carrots when I wazs younger and now i can barely see without my glasses. Thanks so much I really appreciate all your responces.

There are several reasons for our eyesight to deteriorate. Among them are impropper diet, and lack of care. There are several strategies which can be adopted. Diet Anything containing carotene is good for the eyes, and you are not limited to carrots. Tomatoes, papaya, and live are some of the examples. Reduce sugar intake. This means avoiding soft drinks especially colas. Exercise The eyeballs need to be subjected to some exercise, the same way other body muscles need a workout to keep in shape. An example is rotating your eyeballs a certain number of timees clockwise, then anticlockwise. A general exercise csan reduce the blood sugar level, and lowers blood pressure. Protection UV glasses to reduce harmful UV rays from affecting the eyeballs. Care Alternate looking at close and distant objects. For eample if you are reading do look at distant objects at regular intervals. Massage Around the eyes Gently ressing the eyeballs Reflexology points Other Use of cucumber slices to cool the eyes I hope the points give n above casn spur you to do more research. I have something urgent to do now, so I cannot go into details.

melvinandheather 1, Vision occurs mainly in the brain Our eyes receive information in the form of light, and brain processes the information to make meaning of it, creating our "visual world" . The process of improving vision helps to bring one more into balance of harmony. Nothing is more precious than your vision. Many people find their vision worsening due to modern life style and cultural beliefs about the "inevitable" decline of health including vision. First you please visit your family vision educators, and start necessary treatment orderly, to avoid further complications. " Prevention is better than cure"

I will also like to know about this to. My eye sight is really really bad, I cant even see what is right in front of me and im very scared that it is going to keep on getting worse as I age. I dont want to be blind. Maybe I will get lasik. But what does Lasik even really do? Does it put a lense in your eye or does it really correct the problem?
