Recently, there has been a lot of talk about the natural reversal of blurry vision. Can you really regain 20/20 vision with natural eye exercises and eye vision nutrition?
New studies now confirm a link between what you eat and the performance of your eyes.
Increasing your physical activity and maintaining a balanced diet will indeed improve your quality of life and help preserve and improve your eyesight.
Keep in mind that anything you do that affects your cardiovascular system can damage or repair your eyesight. This includes exercises and eye vision nutrition. Any change in the blood supply to the eyes can cause blockage, leading to blurred vision or vision loss. Poor diet and lack of exercise has been the catalyst for many people with type 2 diabetes, which can then lead to diabetic retinopathy and vision loss.
A balanced diet containing the 3 main sources of fuels are proteins, fats and carbohydrates. These are necessary to keep our body, mind and eyes healthy and strong. Omega 3 fatty acids in fish, low-fat protein in chicken and legumes, whole grains, and plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables are needed for optimal vision.
Proper eye vision nutrition requires an adequate amount of micronutrients, 50-60% complex carbohydrates, 20-25% protein and 20-25% fat ideally containing omega-3 fatty acids.
To help improve poor vision, follow the dietary recommendations below and incorporate simple eye exercises into your lifestyle. Also consider taking vitamin supplements to ensure you are getting good amounts of micronutrients that are important for maintaining eye health.

The above nutritional recommendations for ocular vision are not the ultimate solution to achieving 20/20 vision. If you’re looking for more effective nutritional tips and exercises to improve your eyesight naturally, your local library and online resources are widely available. A very popular book that explains how to increase eye vision was created by the famous Dr. William Bates in the early 1900s and is still in circulation today.
