10 Natural Ways To Improve Eyesight

Eye Health Nov, 2022

1. Stay fit

Exercising reduces the risk of eye problems, not just for people with diabetes, but even for people who don't have the disease. The more active you are, the lower your chances of developing heart disease, high cholesterol, and other conditions that contribute to the development of diabetic retinopathy.

Distance runners have a higher incidence of retinopathy than those who run shorter distances. This could be because the extra force of their impact may cause micro-tears in their retina. This can lead to leakage from blood vessels and bleeding under the retina. So if you're a runner, make sure you wear good running shoes and check your vision after long runs or races.

Exercising also helps control blood sugar levels so that your ophthalmologist will be able to see better results when examining your eyes during a dilated retinal exam.

Although most people with diabetes experience some loss of vision as the disease progresses, good eye health is important to maintain as much sight as possible; it's also important in maintaining a positive attitude toward life. If you have diabetes, take care of yourself and your eyes by eating right and exercising regularly.

2. Manage Chronic Conditions

Chronic conditions can lead to serious health problems. For example, heart disease and diabetes are two major causes of blindness. If you have a chronic condition, such as diabetes, you can take steps to help prevent vision loss or blindness.

Treating these conditions early can help prevent or delay further complications or vision loss.

Some people may also need to see an eye doctor. For example, if you are diabetic, you should see an eye doctor at least once a year to check for eye disease and signs of vision problems due to diabetes.

You may also want to get your eyes checked regularly if you are over the age of 55, even if you do not have diabetes or another chronic condition. Treating conditions early is important because it might prevent more serious eye problems down the road.

Here are some strategies that can help you keep your eyes healthy: Have regular eye exams. The AOA recommends having an eye exam every one to two years for everyone between the ages of 19 and 64. After age 65, you should get an exam at least once every two years, or as recommended by your eye doctor.

3. Wear Protective Eyewear

There are plenty of reasons to wear eye protection outdoors. While you may think your eyes are protected in the shade, many hazards exist even in the shade.

It’s easy to overlook risks that exist outside, but you can take precautions to protect your eyes from flying objects or chemicals that could permanently damage them. Plus, wearing eye protection is part of a general safety plan that can help keep you from getting injured during a sport or science experiment.

Here are some tips for protecting your eyes outdoors:

Wear sunglasses and goggles when playing sports. Whether you’re on a baseball field or playing a game of soccer, you’re likely to get hit with a ball at some point. If you don’t wear eye protection, that could lead to a black eye or worse yet, an injury to your cornea (the clear surface of your eye). Sunglasses offer some protection against flying objects because they absorb the impact, but they aren’t completely effective. Goggles offer more protection than sunglasses and can be worn over glasses if necessary.

4. Avoid Smoking

Smoking is a major cause of cataracts and age-related macular degeneration. Smoking reduces the number of antioxidants that are beneficial to your eyes. It causes oxidative damage to proteins, fats, and DNA in the body, including your eyes. When you stop smoking, this damage heals over time.

The longer you smoke, the more damage you do to your body. How Smoking Causes Damage: Nicotine in cigarettes makes blood vessels in the retina constrict (get smaller) and become brittle. At the same time, it increases fluid production which results in swelling of the macula and cataract formation. Cigarette smoke increases free radical formation which damages cells and tissue leading to vision loss.

Smoking causes poor circulation that prevents healthy food from reaching your eye tissues. This can result in premature aging of the macula and other parts of the eye discoloration. If you have diabetes or a family history of cataracts, you may also be at risk for developing posterior capsular cataracts. In addition to smoking having an impact on your eyes, smoking can also increase your risk for another major cause of blindness: macular degeneration.

Smoking causes blood vessels in the retina to swell and leak fluid, which can lead to damage in the central area of the retina called the macula. Over time, this damage can cause vision loss. To help minimize these vision-robbing effects, quit smoking today and make sure you get regular eye exams with an optometrist or ophthalmologist to catch any vision problems early."

5. Keep Your Hands And Lenses Clean

Wash your hands and soak your contacts in contact lens solution before you put them in. Wash your hands again after putting them in, then rinse the lens thoroughly with fresh water—letting them soak for at least 10 minutes to remove any debris from your eyes or fingers. From there, use a non-alcoholic solution to cleanse your lenses. Store the contacts in their case and make sure you’re using a new set every time you put them in.

Always replace your contacts as soon as they start to get dry or feel uncomfortable. If you’re not wearing them, keep them in their case—an old soda bottle works, too. When you’re done wearing them, cleanse the lens thoroughly and store it carefully so that it doesn’t dry out. Wash your hands again and take care to avoid touching other objects when handling the contacts or their cases.

6. Consider Lutein Extraction From Marigold

Lutein is a carotenoid found in high concentrations in the macula lutea (the yellow spot of the retina). Carotenoids are antioxidants that are responsible for the rich color of many fruits and vegetables. Lutein can be obtained through food or Ayurvedic products. Lutein is also available in marigold flowers as pure lutein.

Lutein plays an important role in eye health. It is involved in preventing or slowing down age-related macular degeneration, which is the leading cause of blindness. In addition, lutein is known to enhance contrast and improve visual clarity, and may even provide protection against cataract formation.

Studies have shown that lutein may play a key role in preventing or slowing down the progression of age-related macular degeneration (ARMD), a leading cause of blindness and vision impairment among older people. Some of these studies were conducted by Dr. Richard B. Mailman, director at Columbia University Medical Center, who has been studying the effects of lutein on eye health for more than 20 years now.

Many eye doctors now recommend lutein to help with conditions like AMD and cataracts. Moreover, other research has indicated that lutein may help improve night vision, reduce glare levels and improve color discrimination as well as visual acuity. Lutein can also help to protect against UV radiation which can damage your eyes.

7. Rest For Your Eyes

The eyes need a lot of extra care, especially when you’re staring at computer screens or watching TV. All of this causes eye strain and headaches. Eye strain is very common in children, who are exposed to lots of new visual stimuli daily and can become overstimulated easily.

To prevent eye strain: Close your eyes every hour. Whether it’s for five minutes or 15 minutes, taking breaks will help to reduce the amount of stress placed on the eyes.

Take a break from using your eyes. Every 20 to 30 minutes, rest your eyes by focusing them on something in the distance. This helps to relax the muscles around the eye.

Breathe deeply and regularly. Blinking often helps to remove sweat and other irritants from the surface of the eye, but it also helps to calm you down after an exciting day or stressful event. It’s a good idea to breathe deeply while closing your eyes during short breaks.

Tilt your head back and forth gently side-to-side several times each day . . . don’t forget about those neck muscles! It may feel silly at first, but this movement helps to make sure there isn’t any tension in that part of your body either!

8. Get Enough Sleep

One of the most common reasons for vision problems is not getting enough sleep. The amount of sleep one needs varies from one person to the other, but the National Sleep Foundation (NSF) recommends that adults get at least seven hours of sleep a night.


Trouble sleeping can come from a variety of factors, including stress, excessive light and noise in the bedroom, too much caffeine and alcohol, or poor sleep habits.

The NSF recommends avoiding electronic devices before bedtime as well as eating a light snack instead of a large meal in the evening. They also suggest establishing a regular bedtime routine to help your body wind down and prepare for sleep. If you have trouble sleeping, discuss your situation with your eye doctor to see if he or she has any suggestions that could help you get the rest you need to keep your eyes at their best.

9. Create Eye-Friendly Surroundings

Creating eye-friendly surroundings is the best way to take care of your eyes at work. It is also one of the best ways to prevent computer vision syndrome (CVS), a common condition that occurs when people spend too much time on visual display terminals (VDTs) at work.

Treat your eyes well and make sure that you are not staring continuously at your computer screen for long hours. Try to give them a break by staring at something far off for about 20 seconds every 20 minutes. Take a walk around the office and look out of the window, or even chat with your colleagues.

Sitting in front of the computer for long hours and staring at the screen will take a toll on your vision. Even if you are not suffering from eye allergies or eyes vista, you should take some time to relax your eyes. It is important to create an environment that is welcoming to your vision.

Tasteful and calm surroundings help improve your vision. They can help you achieve better focus and reduce stress. The more relaxed you are, the less likely it is that you will have tiredness and fatigue in your eyes. Your computer should be placed in a place where it does not cause excessive strain on your neck, shoulders or back muscles. Take breaks regularly and keep your eyes hydrated with water and fresh air.

A comfortable chair with good back support will make it easier for you to sit for hours without feeling uncomfortable or fatigued. Dim the lights when using your computer if possible, as bright light can cause eye strain. Keep the screen clean so that you do not have to squint to read what is on it. And if needed, use a glare guard to avoid eye strain while reading or working on the computer**

10. Have Regular Eye Exams

Most of us know that vision problem are easier to treat the earlier they are detected. But sometimes, people put off getting an eye exam because they don't think they need one. However, regular eye exams can detect vision defects when you don't even realize anything is wrong. For example, retinal detachments often have no symptoms, but can be spotted during an exam.

Your eyes change with age and from your environment as well as from any injuries you may have suffered. Because of these factors, it's important to get a thorough eye exam at least every two years — and more often if you've had eye surgery or trauma.


It is also recommended that you get an eye exam if you notice a sudden change in your vision; for example, if the print in the newspaper seems blurry.

If you wear contact lenses, it's also important to have your eyes checked regularly if you want to make sure that your eyesight is stable and that you aren't developing any complications from wearing them (such as infections or dry eyes). When you get a new lens prescription, your optometrist or ophthalmologist will usually recommend how often to continue seeing him or her for follow-up exams.
