As the COVID-19 pandemic forced schools to shut down and brought about a wave of uncertainty, my daughter and I found ourselves navigating a new normal.
With more time on our hands and limited outdoor activities, we embarked on a journey to explore alternative ways to improve our well-being. Little did we know that this path would lead us to researching a great, easy, natural proven method to better vision.
Join us as we share our experiences and the transformation we witnessed over the course of a month.
With my daughter wearing glasses since an early age, I became increasingly concerned about her eye health and long-term dependence on corrective lenses.
As fate would have it, I came across some great information from my own personal research, which uses a holistic approach that emphasizes relaxation and natural techniques to improve vision.
Intrigued by the possibility of reducing our reliance on glasses, we decided to give it a try.
Morning Rituals and Dedicated Practice
During the lockdown, our mornings took on a new routine. We set aside a specific time each day to practice these given exercises. My daughter and I would find a quiet space in our home and dedicate 5 minutes to perform eye exercises, palming, and sunning techniques as prescribed. These practices aimed to relax the eye muscles and improve blood flow to the eyes.
Patience and Perseverance
Like any new endeavour, the journey wasn't without its challenges. At first, my daughter found it difficult to maintain focus and wondered if the exercises were making any difference. However, we reminded ourselves that change takes time, and with perseverance, we would begin to see results. We encouraged each other, celebrating even the smallest improvements along the way.
Observing the Transformation
As the days turned into weeks, we couldn't help but reflect on the impact it had on our lives. Beyond the physical improvements, we gained a newfound appreciation for the power of the mind-body connection. The dedication and discipline we developed during this period spilled over into other aspects of our lives, fostering a sense of resilience and self-belief.
Our lockdown experience turned out to be a blessing in disguise, leading us down a path of discovery and self-improvement.
These very simple eye exercises not only helped my daughter reduce her dependency on glasses but also taught us valuable lessons about patience, perseverance, and the remarkable potential of our bodies.
As we emerge from these challenging times, we carry with us the knowledge that sometimes the greatest transformations happen when we least expect them.
The method that I used to naturally improve my daughter's eyesight is below.
Hopefully by doing this, I will be able to help others by allowing them to strengthen their own eyes naturally, rather than relying on lenses.
1. Palming: Sit comfortably and cover your closed eyes with your palms, ensuring no pressure is applied to the eyes. Relax and imagine blackness while breathing deeply. This exercise helps to relieve eye strain and promote relaxation.
2. Sunning: Close your eyes and face the sun (with eyes closed). Move your head slowly from side to side, allowing the sunlight to shine on your closed eyelids. This exercise helps improve light sensitivity and relaxation.
3. Swinging: Stand or sit comfortably and allow your body to sway gently from side to side. Keep your eyes relaxed and open, allowing them to move with the motion. This exercise helps to improve peripheral vision and relaxation of the eye muscles.
4. Eye Shifting: Focus on an object in the distance and then shift your gaze to a closer object. Repeat this shifting of focus between distant and close objects several times. This exercise helps improve flexibility and coordination of the eye muscles.
5. Near-Far Focus: Hold a small object like a pencil at arm's length and focus on it. Then, shift your focus to an object in the distance. Repeat this near-far focusing several times. This exercise helps improve accommodation and flexibility of the eye lens.
6. Figure 8 Tracing: Imagine a figure-eight shape in front of you or draw it on a piece of paper. Trace the figure-eight pattern with your eyes, following the outline in a smooth and relaxed manner. This exercise helps improve eye coordination and tracking.
7. Blinking: Practice conscious blinking by gently and fully closing your eyes for a moment and then opening them again. Repeat this blink exercise throughout the day to keep the eyes moisturized and relaxed.
