Experiences with Natural Vision Improvement


I have been using some natural vision improvement techniques for approximately 3 weeks. I don’t have anything concrete to report. But here is my experience with it.

I have an eye chart in my living room that I use to test my vision. Immediately after doing vision improvement exercises, I do notice that I can read further down the chart and the letters appear more clear and sharp than usual. After a while the effect fades and my vision seems to go back to where it was.

I have also beend doing eye-washes daily and drinking bilberry juice or tea, whichever is available. I have to say that the eye washing is very pleasant and I was surprised how much oily or lipid deposits are washed from the eye each time.

I would love to hear from anyone that has any experience whatsoever with natural vision improvement – good, bad or indifferent. I would like very much to hear of your experience or thoughts on the matter of natural vision therapy.

It’s great to find someone else who has decided to try natural vision improvement. I recently purchased the Perfect Eyes ebook course and have started reading through it, but haven’t started the exercises.

This came about after a bunch of research into Lasik surgery. I actually had a Lasik consultation scheduled last week, but changed my mind and cancelled after some investigation.

So… You posted this entry on April 20th — how has it been going since then? Are you still doing the exercises, and have you had any permanent improvement?

By the way, did you also purchase a course online, or did you find your own stuff by doing research? Please email me or post an update to your blog. Thanks!

Hi Gemini,

thanks for writing. I also have the perfect eyes book. I’ve discovered that there is very similar information on another website. But PE does have a few things that site does not.

To answer your questions , my vision has probably gotten slightly worse. I’ve gone back to wearing my contacts constantly and I haven’t been doing much in the way of exercises.

What I have recently found helpful is looking away into the distancce after every 6 minutes, like the book says.

The other thing is to look over 20 feet away. I’ve read recently that looking 20 feet away is good because that is the minimum distance for the light to hit the eyes in the correct fashion and where the eyes can actually relax.

I think if I could remember to look up after every 6 minutes for at least 10 -20 seconds, I would see a greater difference. I do a lot of near work, wearing my contacts and that is probably hindering me.

When I go out, I like to wear my contacts so that I can interact with people via eye contact. Without the lenses, I can’t make eye -contact more than 10 feet away.

So that is my dilemma, I’m sure the eye exercises would help otherwise.

I probably need to get the motivator device that David talks about in his book.

Any thoughts?

I’m surprised to hear that your vision has actually worsened, but I’m going to assume it’s because you haven’t done the exercises consistently. I’ve read that it can take months, and sometimes even years to really improve the vision.

My vision isn’t terrible to begin with, which is why I opted to cancel my Lasik appointment. Based on the boxes my contacts come in, my prescription is -1.50 and -1.75. I’m not sure what that translates to as far as 20/??, but it’s really not all that bad. I’m nearsighted, and also need my glasses (or contacts) to make eye contact with others at much more than 20 feet or so.

Since I too do a lot of close-up work as a computer engineer and avid TV watcher (sorry to say), I’ve started the program by simply making sure I look away and into the distance on a regular basis – as you suggested. I’ve only had the ebook for 2 days, so I have a lot more to learn and incorporate into my daily routine. I tried “palming” once today and found that it’s very soothing and relaxing to the eyes.

I plan to keep a journal as suggested to log my progress. I’ll try to keep you updated as I go along if you’d like me to, or feel free to check in with me in a couple weeks.

As far as that motivator device… I don’t think it’s really required. If you want to improve your vision and put your mind to it, I think anyone could remember to look up on a regular basis. Even if it’s not every 6 minutes, it’s still going to help if you do it on a regular basis.

I think you should start palming at least once per day for 5-10 minutes and see if it helps any. Some of the stuff I’ve read so far in PE is really hard to believe that it helps improve vision, but I’m trying to keep an open mind. I’ll give it an honest attempt for 3 months and measure my results.

Hey Gemini,

After you last note, I started thinking about what I was doing.

Here are some interesting observations.

I had been lazy about the eye wash portion. I was using saline solution with no lemon juice. So I decided to start using the lemon juice, there was an immediate difference. Oh, and I will try to avoid using saline and go back to distilled water. The saline affects the skin around the eyes in a negative way.

Then I took out my contacts and took a good look at them. They were filthy. I took the time to actually rub them clean, up until now I had been using ‘no rub’ solutions.

Guess what, after washing my eyes with the lemon juice included, and cleaning my contacts, I was seeing more clearly.

(NOTE: if you are reading this and don’t know what we are talking about, do NOT put lemon juice in your eyes. – There are special instructions that go with this. – See your eye care provider if you are having problems with your vision and do not use the information on this page for any reason.)

Weird, isn’t it?

I’m still not doing daily eye exercises except that I go out onto back deck in the morning sometimes and scan and the horizon, edging all the objects I see and after a few minutes of that I start getting clearer flashes of vision. I think I’m just going to do that., the exercises in the book are a little strange and I don’t feel comfortable doing them. i want my eyes to get better, but I guess I’m going to make up my own routine.

The other thing is that book says to look 10 feet away from your near work every six minutes or so. I would modify that to twenty. I’ve read that the eyes need at least 20 feet to truly relax. So 10 may not be enough.
