After visiting your optician for your latest eye checkup, to be told your vision has worsened slightly, are given the option to wear glasses as they are told this will help improve their eyesight.
Whilst it will make a difference to your clarity of vision – what a lot of people do not know is once you start wearing glasses, your eye health will deteriorate more. The reason for this is because you are not actually treating the cause of the problem, you are just providing your eyesight with a crutch which it will soon learn to depend on, as glasses make the eyes lazy.
Improve Eye Health By Doing Blinking Exercises
There are many exercises out there that once practiced on a regular basis can help to strengthen eyesight naturally.
Blinking is one of the easiest ways to achieve improved eye health and vision because it allows your eyelids to keep your eyes coated with three beneficial layers of tears.
1. The first layer of tears lies right up against the whites of your eyes, and provides an even coat of protein-rich moisture for the second layer to adhere to.
2. The middle watery layer helps to wash away foreign debris. It also nourishes the cornea of your eyes with minerals, a variety of proteins, and moisture.
3. The third outer layer of tears is somewhat oily. It serves to prevent the middle watery layer from evaporating quickly, and provides needed lubrication between your eyes and your eyelids.
If you do not regularly coat your eyes with the three layers of tears then you will be depriving them of necessary nourishment and cleansing and this will eventually cause strain and damage to the eye area.
