Eye exercise is a kind of vision therapy. For example base-out prism reading, stereogram cards, computerized training programs, and the wearing of convex or concave lenses. It is usually used by orthoptists and ophthalmologists for strabismus treatments or convergence insufficiency treatments. But it is believed that it can’t purely improve monocular visual acuity such as amblyopia. Sometimes, eye exercise simply by moving eyeball from left to right or up and down can relax the eyes.

China has developed special eye exercise related to acupuncture point for the relaxation of eye muscles. There are about ten couple acupuncture points around the eyes, for instance, “Yuyao” are the point located at the medical aspect of the eyebrows, “Zanzhu” are the poinst located at the nasal bridge, and “Shibai” points are on the cheeks about 4cm below the centre of pupils. Chinese student usually do eye exercise daily before they begin class. The eye exercise involving four steps with the eyes closed. The first step of eye exercise is massaging of “Yuyao” point with the thumbs pressing against the 2 points in a circular movement to a count of 8 beats per cycle. Repeat 8 circles. The second step of eye exercise is massaging of “Zanzhu” points with two fingers of one hand, also repeat 8 cycles. The following step is massaging of “Shibai” points with the index fingers. The last step of eye exercise is pressing on “temple” points with the thumbs while sliding round the upper and lower eye sockets with the knuckle of the index fingers.

Eye exercise can not be used as the treatment of serious eye disease.

Bates method, developed y Dr. William Horatio Bates during the early 20th Century, is a series of simple eye exercises done to improve eyesight. The emergence of Bates method provides people another way to help them restore eyesight without having an eye surgery. It is especially a good way for those who can not afford eyesight correction surgeries, which are rather expensive.

The principle of Bates method improving eyesight problems is on the basis that eye problems are caused by psychological problems. Dr. Bates, an ophthalmologist, states that stress constitutes the main cause of eye problems as that for psychological problems, therefore the best way to solve the problem is to suit the remedy to the case and relaxation exercises are able to relieve stress and pressure from both the mind and body.

However, the point is that many people do not believe Bates method effective and they prefer to have an eye surgery from which they can get an instant result. That is because they never persist in exercising everyday, for Bates method, like taking Chinese herbal medicine, is a step-by-step process. Surgery, which seems to be effective, actually exist hidden troubles. They safety of a surgery is the first and foremost issue worthy reconsidering. Although it is said that eye surgeries are of high safety, the possibility of eye complications is inevitable, which may result in either slight or sever eye problems, or even completely blindness.

Therefore, no matter whether you have ever tried Bates method or not, if you want to save your money and have safer way to improve your eyesight, Bates method should be the best way for you. As a matter of fact, many people have benefited from Bates method, which proves that without surgery, one is able to improve their eyesight.

All about See-Clearly Eye Exercises

November 22nd, 2009

On one encountering eyesight problems, either myopia or hypermetropia, it firstly occurs to him/her to choose a solution by wearing glasses, contact lenses or undergoing an eye surgery. Few has ever thought to find a natural way to improve eyesight problems, nor have any ophthalmologist told them. In recent years, a rumour that there are some see-clearly eye exercises to improve eyesight is popular on net and many net friends state that they have tried such exercises and have benefited from it greatly. So today I want to, over this issue, to make a verification that there indeed exists a natural vision therapy that is believed to be able to help correct faulty vision.

This natural vision correction is principle-based on useing eye muscles more to make them stronger and flexible, reducing the power and stress to eyes, in terms of Dr. Bates’ opinion that the main cause of most eyesight problems is stress. This is also the reason why when people get to their 40s, no matter whether they have eyesight problems or not before, they tend probably to have blur vision and need to wear glasses.

Then you may ask where you can get any information concerning specific techniques. Firstly I want to say it is almost impossible to get such information from an ophthalmologist, because in some degree, it affects his/her career. The best place is on Internet where many sites display various specific techniques and a lot people who have gotten tremendous results share their experiences.

All in all, see-clearly eye exercises are able to relax eyes and strengthen eye muscles. As long as you keep on taking exercises everyday, you will certainly be far away from glasses forever. In addition, such eye exercises do no harm to eye health. This is another advantage that it should be more preferable than any other ways to correct vision.
