This is amazing. The way to improve (I'm afraid to say completely cure) your eyesight is to do this: Peer thru a small hole the size of a pencil lead width. Use a card or your hand. Look thru and you will see your eyesight is perfect! Not sure exactly why it works but if you use it to exercise your eye, it will improve your eyesight dramatically. You can even feel your lense contract as it works to adjust itself. It works quickly and 5 minutes a day for a couple of weeks will do the trick. Then just as needed after that to keep them eyeballs in shape! And if you ever forget your glasses, peering thru a pinhole will do in a pinch.

They sell what are called pinhole glasses online (cheapest on ebay) but they are too dark, I don't like them much. But the idea is they help you improve/exercise your eye!

oh so true. our dad used to make us look at moon thru the hole in the needle (the small upper portion where the thread goes in)..... it improves eyesight.

Martha, that is so cool! I've noticed my eyes getting worse and I have to say, I was very skeptical, but it worked! I'm going to try to do that every day and see if my eyesight gets better. Thanks for the great tip!

Can you be a little for detailed? Do you cover one eye with your hand and then with the eye that is uncovered you look through something the size of a pen hole? I need to excecise my eyes.

Thank you,

This works and has been used by Eskimos with their traditional snow goggles with the narrow slit for peering through. You can also buy glasses with black lenses but dotted with pinholes - they work very well and are called pinhole glasses. The results are immediate but they will also improve your vision if worn regularly. I've also seen plastic fashion glasses that are similar to pinhole glasses in teen fashion shops that are less expensive.

I have same question as Roslyn, do you peer with both eyes @ the same time or you cover one eye with something. Please reply. Thank you.

I have tried looking thru the eye of a needle and cannot make any progress of even seeing thru it at all. Any suggestions? Is there a size of the eye of a needle or will any do?

Thank you

If you wear glasses do you peer through the hole with or without glasses?

How large can the eye of the needle be to be useful?

You don't want to look through a needle. The object of the exercise is to block out most of the view and just look through a small hole. That way the light hits the back of your eye in one small place. It works. There are glasses you can get for this called pin hole glasses.

I have been occasionally using pinhole glasses for reading and computer work for about 35 years. They keep your eye muscles strong and I believe help to keep the lens circular. I am 69 years old and just got my first set of mild prescription glasses (1.5 mag) from an ophtalmologist a couple months ago.

As a follow-up, don't use the pinhole glasses while driving because you lose a lot of your peripheral vision.

Several years ago I started consuming pumpkin. I had heard that the canning process doesn't harm it the way it does other vegetables so I began taking about a half cup per day in hot water seasoned as a drink, or with butter like a vegetable. My reason for taking it was for the beta carotene antioxidant qualities and fiber. After having warn glasses for distance for almost 50 years, I started putting them on top of my head because they were bothering me. When I went for my next eye exam the dr. told me my vision had improved. It has been several years now that I do not wear my glasses except for reading. I am 67 years old. I didn't know that one's nearsightedness was reversible. The only thing I had done differently was taking the pumpkin (which has protected me from flu when everyone around me was sick when I was teaching school). One day I heard Paul Harvey on the radio talking about a supplement for macular degeneration and that some people were claiming their vision was improving. I then knew for sure it was the nutrients in the pumpkin. Plain canned pumpkin with nothing added is a great addition to a healthy diet. My favorite is pumpkin in chicken broth with liquid ammino acids to taste(similar to soy sauce) for flavoring, shredded chicken breast and brocolli. The anti-inflammatory number in that is very high!

How long did you consume pumpkin before you saw results?

My mother is 82 years. Just recently I noticed that she is wearing reading glasses. All these years, she had perfect eyesight. I asked her about her eyesight and she said her doctor is astounded that she has such great eyesight and perfect health. Mother told me to eat 1 raw carrot a day until my blurry vision is normal. She's done this for years she said and has just began using prescription reading glasses. WOW! I'm starting this today.

Please post back every so often on your progress. I would love to one day not have to bother with contacts everyday!

Soy Milk, Raw Egg  

Posted by Gavin (Manganui, Northland, New Zealand) on 09/19/2010

I tried many things to improve longsightedness.. And one that seems to work well is a glass of soya milk with a raw egg beaten into it and taken before going to bed at night. The only problem is wind... It takes about three days to get an improvement.

I might have to have a recap as I've been posting with regards to a period a couple of years ago when I was sitting watching the television, my vision went blurred so I took off my glasses and could see perfectly. Since then I've been trying to get to the nub of the improvement with some sucess. The improvement lasted ten days I'm sure it was down to grapefruit juice... I ran out the season came to an end... So since then, I've been trying to reproduce the main things that caused the improvement. Lemon mixed with orange juice, with a capful of ACV added seems over a couple of weeks to have allowed me to just use the one pair of glasses for reading.. that's a definitive improvement.

Now the interesting part Sunday I happened to see a reporter on a TV show get into an MRI scanner, and have a brain scan, when it was done she had a cup of coffee, then an hour later she had another MRI scan.. The one cup of coffee had caused a reduction of blood flow to the brain of 40% she was shocked. The following discussion ensued as to the headache, caused by the stopping of this bevarage, which is basically the return of blood flow after coffee/caffene has been stopped.. This can last several days. Since blood flow to the eyes is essential for good vision, and being a coffee drinker, I slowed my consumption from about four a day to three to two to one and today is the first day with nill coffee. The vision improvement has been dramatic! My headache of course is now on the wane, and since the eyes were throbbing, I'd assume the blood flow is returning to normal. Which begs an interesting question, what's normal after a lifetime of coffee drinking? When they improved last time I was drinking copious amounts of juice.. And not drinking my usual amounts of coffee beverage. I'm now subsituting with cocoa. The distance vision has improved, over the past few days and things look so much clearer.. Of course it wouldn't only be coffee that's loaded with caffeine most soft drinks and energy drinks could be a problem as well.

It might be worth mentioning, I'm having some lemon /orange juice and ACV garlic cayenne turmeric and organic soya milk.. before stopping the coffee.

Looks like this condition could be improved by daily Vit-C w/ Bioflavinoids, Grapefruitseed extract. A round of the top 5 or more Circulation herbs would also be in consideration on a once every 5yrs basis. As time goes by, the arteries of many folks "harden" (hardening of the arteries) or become inflexible I. E. They lose their elasticity. Omega 3 fatty acids are also good to prevent the hardening.

*corection* NOT "grapefruitseed extract" YES "Grapeseed Extract" or Pine Bark Extract would do.

I have reverse T3 and hoshimoto's and adrenal fatigue, all that affect my vision, and I drink coffee. It's organic, but this blood flow information is enough to get me to cut back to only 1 cup a day and eventually get off it. I'm going to buy the 'small' coffee maker, only makes like a cup or two at a time, you've given me incentive. Thank you again.

Wearing Contact Lense in 1 Eye

I went to the eye doctor recently for my annual contact and glasses check up. My Dr. said, "Keep doing what you are doing! " My eyes have gotten better the last 5 yrs when most others get worse. There are 2% of the population that never needs readers, according to my eye doctor. I have been nearsighted since 7th grade. I switched from glasses to contacts right out of college.

About 5 years ago my sight, what with contacts in and doing tons of work on the computer, was blurry. I was like dang my eyes are changing but they are getting better! So, as an experiment I started to wear just 1 contact lense in my eye needing a stronger prescription - the left eye. It is just for long distance vision (not a bifocal lense). In time, I was able to see the computer just fine as well as drive! It took a few days for my eyes & brain to get used to wearing one contact lense instead of 2.

I sometimes switch the contact to the right eye for driving. I began to think that the body really is amazing and it adapts. My vision for contacts went from 275 and 250 to 225 and 200. Both eyes have gotten stronger regarding my distance vision! I do not use reading glasses anymore. Small print is very clear. My eye doctor told me it's 20/15.

My vision hasn't been at these numbers since 1987. I checked my records! Hope this helps someone else.

What have you been doing exactly? I'd love to know. Did you only really just switch to wearing contacts from glasses? Have you started eating better as you grew up?
