Eyesight
problems have become a norm in the digital age. 
A lot of people spend a major chunk of their time in front of bright
screens which has a negative effect on vision.



 When we stare at bright screens
the blinking rate of eyes is reduced which tires the eyes and leads to blurry
vision. 



Nearsightedness, 
farsightedness,  presbiopia and
double vision are some
common eye problems that cause disturbances invision. To fix the visual errors arising from these conditions, one can take
help of glasses but it’s  not a full proof
solution as refractive errors are not the only reason for problems with vision.



 Mineral and vitamin deficiencies, dehydration and some medical conditions also
contribute to changes in eyesight. These factors need to be looked into in
detail to treat vision problems. To improve your eyesight naturally you can
take help of the following methods.


Water Intake

Water
plays an important role in maintaining eye health.  If the body is dehydrated, it impacts the
vision in a number of ways.  Insufficient
water intake causes the eyes to become dry which negatively affects vision.  Hence, 
adequate consumption of water is essential for healthy eyesight.


Eye Exercises

Incorporating
eye exercises in your daily schedule is beneficial for the eyesight. Exercises
like nose tip gazing,  eye rolling,  blinking exercise and tracing exercise help
in strengthening eye muscles and train your eyes to see clearly from varying
angles and distances. Make a habit of performing eye exercises several times a
day to see significant improvement in your vision.


Adequate Rest

Eyes
need rest to function properly. Constantly staring at bright screens puts a lot
of strain on the eyes and makes them tired. 
Resting your eyes every once in a while is a good way to relax tense
muscles around the eyes. 



 It also gives
an opportunity to recover from itchiness and burning that accompanies tired
eyes. Get eight hours of sound sleep each night to relax your eyes. Using an
eye mask during sleep gives your eyes adequate amount of rest and provides
relief from vision problems linked to tired eyes.


Vision Friendly Diet

Consume
foods rich in nutrients that promote eye health. Make it a point to include
leafy greens, carrots, beets,   berries,
citrus fruits, meat, fish, poultry, dairy products,  mushrooms, nuts, seeds and whole grains in
your diet to prevent vision problems that stem from nutritional deficiencies.


Eye Massage

Eye
massage helps in relaxing ocular muscles and improves blood flow to the eyes
which is vital for good vision. Massaging certain pressure points around your
eyes like the rim of your eyes,  inner
corners of eyes,  bridge of the nose,
sides of nostrils and area between your eyes on the forehead helps in improving
the eyesight by releasing any stored up fluids and sinus congestion in these
points.


Limit Screen Exposure

Take
conscious efforts to limit your screen time if you want significant improvement
in your vision. Those  with desk jobs can
give their eyes some rest by looking 20 feet away for ten minutes every half an
hour between their work. It helps your vision to adjust to varying distances
and relaxes eye muscles.


Herbal Eye Wash

Herbal
eye washes are another natural method to eliminate visual problems. Herbs like
triphala,  baheda and indian gooseberry
in dried form helps in relieving blurry vision. Dissolve any one of the
powdered helbs in sterile water and dip a clean wash cloth in the liquid. Place
the wet wash cloth over your eyes for some days to see improvement in vision.


Green Tea

Regular
consumption of green tea has shown to help with certain eye problems. This tea
is a potential source of nutrients such as vitamin C, zeaxanthin and
lutein,  which help in promoting healthy
vision. Cooled green tea liquid can also be used as an eye wash to derive
its  benefits in improving vision.


Blinking

Our eyes
blink to keep them clear and free of external irritants. When we focus our eyes
on television or mobile screens, this blinking rate lowers. 



A lowered blinking
rate is linked to a condition called dry eye. This condition may result in
blurry vision if measures are not taken to treat this condition.



 Blinking your
eyes four to five times every minute, helps in preventing dry eye by spreading
the tear film on the eye surface and clears up vision.


Spend Time Outdoors

Remaining
indoors for prolonged periods is harmful for the eyesight as eyes do not get to
see far off objects.  Spending time
outdoors gives you a chance to explore and spot things lying at far off places.
It also exposes your eyes to fresh air which is needed to keep the eyes
healthy.
