This blog is about how you have control over your own eyesight.
Your eyes can focus due to the combined function of your eye muscles.
Think of Vision Training as Physiotherapy for your eyes. The articles here are about how this is possible.
I speak from personal experience, since I wore glasses over 26 years (-5.50 diopters for near sight). More than 25 years ago (1991) I found a way to restore my natural eyesight.
Now you can as well ...
Importance Of Optimum Lighting
Light is a medium that contains energy as photons and it is astoundingly powerful when it comes to influencing living organisms. In fact, sun is the universal energy source for our planet and all the energy we use can be traced back to the sun eventually. We already know that light can influence the rate of plant growth, but there’s a lot more to it.
The visible light is just a small part of the light spectrum and there are various other lights of varying wavelengths. Also, we see the colors that we do because the object reflects that particular color and absorbs all others. This is why plants are green, because they reflect the green light instead of absorbing it.
UV light & Us
UV rays are also a part of the light spectrum. Most of it is reflected back by the ozone layer and the remaining UV consists of three bands. UVC is dangerous to us while UVB and UVA are responsible for the synthesis of vitamin D, that nice tan we all love, regulating the release of certain hormones and participating in bone formation as well as calcium formation.
UV light is absorbed through the skin and eyes, so you shouldn’t shy away from it completely. However, those who have gone through laser surgeries need to use sunglasses when it’s bright outside. This is because their corneas are thinner therefore, excess UV may enter your eyes and damage the retina, if you don’t block them out with sunglasses. Also, whenever you go to the beach, make sure you wear sunglasses because the water and sand reflect a lot of UV light.
You’ll notice that people living in the snowy climate usually have a tan on the front of their neck due to the UV reflected off the snow.
One of the most common and very important questions that arise is “What is the best reading light?”
Well, our eyes have been designed to cater to the natural light inclusive of the entire spectrum of colors, stimulating your cones as well as the rods. However, you can’t have daylight all the time and most of us read indoors or at night time. You can carry out reading under artificial light sources that reproduce the daylight artificially. These light sources include wide-band fluorescent, 7 phosphor wide-band fluorescent and filtered tungsten or halogen light. All these artificial light sources have a color spectrum that is very much similar to daylight and you can carry out your reading, alongside other activities requiring up close visual focus under these optimum light sources.
The idea is to introduce these optimum artificial natural light sources in your home. After thorough searching, the best light bulbs we’ve found so far are from Solux and these halogen spot-lights are the closest artificial lights you can get to daylight at noon.
Also smart LED light fixtures where you can control not only the intensity but also the color temperature of the light. Check out www.lumiteck.at
Vision training is a natural way to exercise your eyes to health. With some special exercises, you can restore perfect by strengthening the muscles around the eye.
First it become difficult to read menus in dimply lit restaurants. Then you notice that you need to hold the newspaper further away. Next you begin to wonder why they print books and magazines using such small fonts. You are experiencing the beginning of presbyopia the need for reading glasses. The need for reading glasses starts in your mid 40's. It is considered inevitable that you will need reading glasses in your early 50's. The main theories upon which this is based originated with the Dutch ophthalmologist Donders (1863) who suggested that the cilliar muscle around the lens might lose its strength as you get older. German scientist Helmholtz (1866) suggested that the lens might become harder as you get older, so it gradually lost its ability to focus. The above theories are what you are told when you ask why do I need reading glasses? At age 35 your lens has lost 50% of its flexibility, at 40 your lens has lost 75% and if you are over 50 years old your lens is supp
Why Haven't I Heard About This Before? Surprisingly, training your eyesight for vision improvement isn’t something new. It has been used since the early 1900's. It all started when Helmholtz published his paper about accommodation and lens focus in 1885. According to Helmholtz, when the eye needs to focus on something close by, the ciliary muscle surrounding the lens contracts, causing the lens to expand. An expanded lens can focus on nearby objects. What is wrong with the picture that Helmholtz painted for us all those years ago? It assumes that when the eye focuses, only the ciliary muscle is involved in the process. Let us look at something like walking. A combination of muscles work together to make it possible for us to walk. Not only are the muscles help you move, they are also maintaining your balance while you do. All the activities are coordinated by the brain, which controls the various muscles by signaling them when to contract or relax an
Eye doctors generally believe that astigmatism is mostly inherited and perhaps partly environmentally caused. They also believe that it does not go away and will probably get worse over time. While the aim of the vision-training astigmatism exercise is to eliminate corneal astigmatism by releasing the tension, it is useful to understand the way astigmatism is corrected with glasses, contact lenses or surgery. First some historical background. Sir Isaac Newton, who himself appears to have been astigmatic, first considered this question of astigmatism in 1727. Seventy years later, in 1801, the renowned scientist Thomas Young investigated astigmatism in detail. Young is reported to have had 1.7 diopters astigmatism. It was Cambridge astronomer Airy (1827) who was the first to correct the astigmatism with a cylindrical lens. However, it was the invention of the keratometer by Helmholtz in 1856 and the treaties of Donders in 1864, “Astigmatism and Cylindrical Lenses,” that put astig
