Vision health is all about awareness—awareness
of what you should do and what you should not do. Your conscious mind may want
to change the bad vision habits that continue to impair your vision, but it is
constantly held back by your subconscious mind. Develop good vision
habits to enhance your vision improvement.
Blinking: Blink constantly to relax
the eye. Blinking has to be soft and complete, not rapid. Blink as if using
your eyelashes to slowly open your eyes.
Shifting: Shift your eyes constantly (the
healthy eye sends more than 50 images per second to the brain) and rapidly by
changing your eye focus frequently. Your eyes move more rapidly when they are
relaxed. This avoids the bad habit of staring at a point.
Peripheral vision: Be aware of your total
field of vision whenever you focus your eyes. Use BOTH central vision and
peripheral vision at the same time.
Natural sunlight: Spend more time
outdoors instead of indoors to reap the health benefits of sunlight in nourishing
your visual system.

vision problems. The eye rests completely only in total darkness. Rub your
palms together to generate some heat, and then cover your eyes but without
touching them, that is, resting your hands on your forehead but without
touching your eyes. Don't close your eyes completely; your eyes will see
blackness. Practice palming and visualize blackness even for as little as 1 to
2 minutes per session. Of course, the longer you palm, the more relaxed your

under-corrected prescription to slowly and gradually wean yourself from wearing
corrective lenses. Wearing eyeglasses or contacts (even worse: because you
cannot remove your contacts at anytime) conditions your eyes to see at a
certain range; healthy eyes should be able to shift easily from close-up to
