5 Keys to Naturally Better Vision

By Martin Sussman

Our vision is our primary means of relationship to the world around us. Of the five physical senses, vision is the most dominant and useful sense.

Yet, over half the people in this country (U.S.A) wear glasses or contacts. Needing corrective-lenses to see clearly is now considered normal, though there are ways to have better vision naturally without the use of any artificial means and complicated procedures like surgery. In this article, I will disclose 5 keys to naturally better vision that have been tried and tested by thousands of individuals over years.

Key#1 - Blink Regularly:
Blinking is a natural preserver of your better vision. Blinking cleanses and lubricates the eyes. When there is no tension, your eyes blink 10-12 times every minute, or about once every 5 seconds. But people who do not see clearly tend to stare and unconsciously hold their eyes open, which causes strain as well as the feeling of dry and tired eyes. Consciously remind yourself to blink every 3-5 seconds. The more you blink the better it is for your eyes. Your eyelid is controlled by only one muscle. By having proper relaxation in that muscle, it can promote relaxation throughout the entire body.

Flutter Blinking: To practice Flutter Blinking, blink your eyes lightly and rapidly 10 to 20 times. Do not strain or squeeze your eyes shut and relax your face as you blink. Then close your eyes and relax. Repeat this 2 or 3 times. Flutter Blinking will help to keep your eyes moist, relaxed and free of strain.

Key # 2 - Use your Peripheral Vision
Your eyes may be offering you more than you realize. At the same time that you are focusing on one object, images are also coming into your eyes from your peripheral awareness - from the left and the right, and from the front of and behind what you are directly looking at.

But unfortunately, people with poor vision have trained their minds to so intently focus on just one thing that they block out their peripheral awareness. This putting on of blinders breeds mental fatigue and a tense style of concentration.

Whatever you are looking at, always remind yourself to be aware of your peripheral vision. Consciously remember to be aware of everything at the same time that you are looking at one point.

Key# 3 - Keep your Eyes Moving and Change your Focus
Staring is the most commonly practiced bad habit in regards to poor vision. Keeping your eyes moving and changing your focus is the most direct and powerful way to break the staring habit.

Normally, the eye moves slightly 50-60 times every single second, constantly changing what it is looking at. This subtle movement is essential for clear vision; you can unlock tension in your visual system by remembering to change your focus frequently. This encourages your eyes to become more relaxed. Whatever you may be doing with your eyes, you should always remember to shift your focus and keep your eyes moving.

Key#4 - Avoid Daydreaming
The word daydreaming is used to mean any mental activity whether or not it involves images, that captures a person's focus while their eyes are open. There isn't anything wrong with the creative use of the imagination, but when daydreaming becomes a habit it can have a negative effect on your vision.

Here's why: If you close your eyes and imagine looking at a distant scene, your eyes respond to that, and change their focus, as they would if they were actually looking at that distant scene.

So, if you're driving down the road and you're thinking about something else, your eyes are caught in a dilemma - what should they be seeing? On the one hand, they are trying to bring the road into focus and on the other hand, are trying to focus on what's in your mind. This causes you to stare, creates visual tension and sends mixed messages to your brain.

Key # 5 - Look with the Eyes of a Child
Engage in your world as a child would - with excitement, freshness, awe and wonder - as if you are seeing everything for the first time.

If you are remembering to blink, to move your eyes and shift focus, to use your peripheral vision and to avoid daydreaming, you can get stuck in the trap of just mechanically using your eyes. There's a big difference between seeing and actively looking. There's always something new and different to notice.

Apply these 5 tips consciously and regularly and you'll find that not only will your eyes start to feel more relaxed but your seeing will become clearer.
