The power of vision which is the ability to perceive our surrounding by way of the sense of sight is a special gifting that nature has endowed us with. In fact, it is estimated that most signals that enter the human brain is through the eyes. A good quantum vision is thus critical to the well-being of an individual be it in terms of physical health, social interaction with others and overall self esteem.
Before we even delve into discussing the ways and means to improve vision naturally, it is important to first and foremost explore the various practices, social and environmental conditions that are inimical to good vision. These abound, and they include but are definitely not limited to the following: poor sleeping habits, poor dietary standards, drugs and substance abuse, poor hygiene and sanitation standards, over-exposure to excessively bright light, under-exposure to natural light, over-exposure to excessively dim light, looking directly into sunlight using lenses, reading white or brighter pages under direct sunlight among a host of other factors.
In order to improve vision naturally, a plethora of precautions ought to be taken. They range from dietary codes, lifestyle changes and hygiene and sanitation standards. They are expounded on in great details hereunder:
To begin with, proper dietary standards ought to be adopted and maintained. Specific emphasis ought to be given to foods that are rich in Vitamin A such as carrots and ripe fruits as these contains carotids nutrients that nourish the optical cells of the human eye. Drugs such as alcohol and cigarettes should be avoided since they lead to lower vision capability.
Secondly, proper lifestyle should be adopted. It is a scientifically-proven fact that adequate sleep and plenty of exercise can actually improve vision naturally. More and more of these ought to be practised. Excessive exposure to direct sunlight out to be avoided and similarly dark environments should be avoided especially for long hours as these tend to damage the eye lenses. A balance ought to be struck as for how long a person stays both indoors and outdoors. Lenses and goggles ought to be avoided especially if one has no eyesight problem. When they are inevitably worn, caution should be taken not to look directly into sunlight as this too has the impact of damaging the eye lenses.
Finally, proper hygienic standards should be maintained at all times. The eyes should be washed at least once a day and with the right soap or disinfectants. This can easily prevent trachoma which arises mainly due to poor hygiene. Strong detergents such as washing powders ought to be avoided at all costs because they can burn the eyes leading to permanent deformation. High hygienic standards should also be extended to the surrounding environment as a precautionary measure. In areas that are infested with houseflies and mosquitoes which carry pathogens such as Trypanosomiasis that can cause eye-related complications, appropriate steps including but not limited to spraying the area with disinfectants, trimming of hedges and drainage of all puddles should be under taken to rid the areas of these insects.
