Question by geml0vely888: Can eye exercises/therapy actually give you better eyesight?
My friend asked me this because she wears glasses and was wondering on ways to improve her eyesight. She searched and found that there were such thing as eye exercises and how it can help improve your eye sight. What do you think about this? Before you can deny, try searching and you’ll see there are some such things on websites!!! It amazed me, but I wasn’t entirely sure if it’d help or not.

Best answer:

Answer by Bwood
it has been shown that certain eye excerises can in fact help improve your eyesight just like eating carrots improves your night vision…your eye is a muscle and just like any other muscle in your body the more you work at it the stronger and more healthier it will get…however unless the screen thing in the back of your eye, i dont remember the name of it, is not working then there is nothing you can do! but for people who wear glasses and contacts eye excersices can be very effective

What do you think? Answer below!

Eye exercises only help if there is double vision due to semiparalytic squint.No help in other conditions.
Vision improves if illumination is improved.

I don’t know about the effectiveness for adult users but I started supervised eye exercises at age 6. Many years later my optometrist credits those exercises to my eyes not being crossed and my vision above average for my age. 2 of my grandchildren are now doing eye exercises and I plan to join them just to see if there can still be improvement. I think its well worth a try.
