Common vision problems
The most common vision problems are refractive errors, more commonly known as nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia. Refractive errors occur when the shape of the eye prevents light from focusing directly on the retina. The length of the eyeball (either longer or shorter), changes in the shape of the cornea, or aging of the lens can cause refractive errors. Most people have one or more of these conditions.
The cornea and lens bend (refract) incoming light rays so they focus precisely on the retina at the back of the eye.
What is refraction?
Refraction is the bending of light as it passes through one object to another. Vision occurs when light rays are bent (refracted) as they pass through the cornea and the lens. The light is then focused on the retina. The retina converts the light-rays into messages that are sent through the optic nerve to the brain. The brain interprets these messages into the images we see.
What are the different types of refractive errors?
The most common types of refractive errors are nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia.
Nearsightedness (also called myopia) is a condition where objects up close appear clearly, while objects far away appear blurry. With nearsightedness, light comes to focus in front of the retina instead of on the retina. Learn more about nearsightedness.
Farsightedness (also called hyperopia) is a common type of refractive error where distant objects may be seen more clearly than objects that are near. However, people experience farsightedness differently. Some people may not notice any problems with their vision, especially when they are young. For people with significant farsightedness, vision can be blurry for objects at any distance, near or far. Learn more about farsightedness.
Astigmatism is a condition in which the eye does not focus light evenly onto the retina, the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye. This can cause images to appear blurry and stretched out. Learn more about astigmatism.
Presbyopia is an age-related condition in which the ability to focus up close becomes more difficult. As the eye ages, the lens can no longer change shape enough to allow the eye to focus close objects clearly. Learn more about presbyopia.
Who is at risk for refractive errors?
Presbyopia affects most adults over age 35. Other refractive errors can affect both children and adults. Individuals that have parents with certain refractive errors may be more likely to get one or more refractive errors.
What are the signs and symptoms of refractive errors?
Blurred vision is the most common symptom of refractive errors. Other symptoms may include:
Glare or halos around bright lights
How are refractive errors diagnosed?
An eye care professional can diagnose refractive errors during a comprehensive dilated eye examination. People with a refractive error often visit their eye care professional with complaints of visual discomfort or blurred vision. However, some people don’t know they aren’t seeing as clearly as they could.
How are refractive errors corrected?
Refractive errors can be corrected with eyeglasses, contact lenses, or surgery.
How To Eyesight Improve: Five Steps
You can improve your eyesight in a matter of weeks, following a few simple steps:
- Never Wear Your Distance Glasses While Reading.
Your distance glasses are meant to let you see clearly far away. When you use it up-close, you create a lot of eye strain. Since you have gotten your eyes used to this through years and years of increasing prescriptions, you don’t even notice. But this habit is the #1 cause of progressive myopia!
How to do deal with close-up focus:
If you can see your screen or book without any glasses, then always take them off. This usually works for lens diopter strengths of -2 diopters and lower.
If you can’t see your screen without glasses, see if you have any of your previous glasses still. Try them on, can you see your screen clearly? See how much farther you can see beyond your screen. Ideally you want the prescription to let you see just as far as you need, but no further.
Another option is to buy reading glasses of about +1 to +1.50 and put them over your full distance contact lenses. Does that limit your distance to just the screen? If so, great! Be sure to buy decent quality lenses (you can tell if they are no good if you get fatigue / headaches from using them).

- Know How To Take Breaks From Close-Up Work.
Many resources tell you this, and they are right. But they are often not right about how much of a break you need, and how to use it.
First, work no longer than 2-3 hours before taking a break. Set yourself a timer on your smartphone, if need be. 3 hours should really be the limit!
After 3 hours at most, get the longest break you can. An hour would be ideal, though at least 30 minutes will do. During that time you want to look at distant objects. Reading street signs, car license plates, anything that’s at least a few meters away is best. If you have glasses that give you a bit of challenge, all the better! If you wear contact lenses, a very slight higher reading glass correction (+0.50) can do the trick.
- Always, Always Have Good, Natural Ambient Lighting.
The quality of the light matters to your eyes, like the quality of air matters to your lungs, and the quality of food to your body. Junk light = poor eyesight!
If you can be sitting next to a window while working, that would be ideal. Not an option? In that case consider buying a natural light emulating bulb for your desk lamp. Usually referred to as “full spectrum UV bulbs” you can buy these online as well as some local stores. You will notice a difference when you have quality light consistently!
- Outdoor, Distance Vision Makes For Happy Eyes.
Your eyes first started to get blurry at a distance from too much close-up (called pseudo myopia, you can learn more about that here). Things got worse from there from wearing your first pair of glasses while reading, and spending way too much time indoors in front of a screen (or book).
If you want better eyesight, you need to do the opposite of what caused the problem. Less time in front of screens, and not wearing the biggest possible prescription all the time is key to your success.
- Measure Your Eyesight, Begin To Understand What Your Eyes Need.
You don’t need an optometrist to measure your eyesight. All you need is a measuring tape (or just a printer and this file). You can also print an eye chart and test your current prescription.
Using our measurement resources and keeping a log of results will start showing you how much your eyesight changes. How you slept the night before, stress, diet, lighting, it all affects how far you can see clearly. Start measuring your eyes, keep track of the results, and begin to understand strain as well as the impact of better habits.

P.S.: Your eyes aren't "broken".
It's your lens use and habits that keep making your eyes "worse". And the massive hundred billion dollar optics industry loves it. They keep you in ever increasing prescriptions, and tell you stories of some mysterious genetic "myopia illness".
It's nonsense. Your eyes are perfectly healthy.

BackTo20/20. Corinne and thousands of others have done it.
You got screwed into living behind those nerd goggles, paying mainstream optometry to "treat" your "illness" with fashion brands and bullshit and 2-for-1 lens sales. You can stick with that program, or you can click below for my 7-day, 7-session guide, and get maybe rid of your myopia forever.

The Best Exercises to Improve Eyesight

Can we improve our eyesight on our own, or are we stuck with the quality of vision we have? Can exercises and other natural remedies help us avoid deterioration of our eyes with age? It’s a popular topic, and not without controversy. Opinions vary widely on the effectiveness of eye exercises, and no research has proven them able to, for instance, improve your prescription. But there are some exercises that certainly promote healthy eyesight.
Do Eye Exercises Work?
We primarily think of “exercise” as relating to muscles and the expending of energy. We exercise by running, going to the gym, doing aerobics or lifting weights. During exercise, we’re pushing our limits, putting pressure on our muscles and bones to increase our endurance and become physically stronger. Our muscles respond to a workout with soreness, we then replenish ourselves with rest, nutrition and water. In turn, the next time we exercise we may be able to lift more weights or run farther.
Exercise means something different when referring to your eyes. We aren’t talking about building endurance; just because you can work on a computer for 7 hours one day doesn’t mean it will be easier for you to work on that computer for 8 hours the next day. Rather, “exercise” in the case of your eyes means that there are natural things you can do to keep your eyes healthier and promote good vision.
The most well-known name in the field of eye exercises is Dr. William Bates, an ophthalmologist who received his medical degree in 1885, saw patients and was an instructor in ophthalmology at the New York Postgraduate Hospital and Medical School. He explored why some patients with refractive errors seemed to spontaneously improve, and developed the theory of “natural” eye correction, i.e. using various techniques to rest and exercise the eyes and restore a person’s eyesight without corrective lenses. It is often likened to “physical therapy for the eyes” in its stated ability to reverse functional vision problems, in large part to a conscious relaxation of the eyes.
While anecdotal evidence supporting the Bates Theory is plentiful, attempts to prove any scientific results have fallen short. Both the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Optometric Association say that natural methods don’t work.
Eye Exercises to Improve Vision
Despite the cautions above, there are some things you can do to make life easier on your eyes and, in turn, perhaps improve your vision:
Blinking: When we blink, our eyelids spread tears across the surface of our eyes, which moistens them and helps remove irritants. The average person blinks every 3 or 4 seconds, or about 15-20 times a minute. However, when we watch television or work on a computer for long periods of time, we blink less. If you consciously work on blinking more often while focusing on these types of activities, your eyes will not be as dry or fatigued.
Give your eyes a break: Try to change your activity for about 10 minutes of every hour spent on the computer or reading. Use this time to go to the restroom, make phone calls or distribute things around the office.
Nutrition for your eyes: Antioxidants can help preserve your vision and reduce the risk of some eye diseases. The primary nutrients here include:
Lutein & zeaxanthin (green leafy vegetables and eggs)
Vitamin C (citrus fruits and vegetables)
Vitamin E (nuts, sweet potatoes and fortified cereals)
Essential fatty acids (olive oil, nuts, eggs and cold-water fish) and
Zinc (spinach, beef, shrimp, beans and seeds)
Don’t smoke: Smoking can harm your eyes just as easily as it does your internal organs. When compared with non-smokers, smokers have double the risk for forming cataracts, triple the risk of age-related macular degeneration, twice the risk of dry eyes, twice the risk of uveitis, and can double the risk of getting diabetes, which can lead to diabetic retinopathy.
Get enough sleep: You’re aware how a lack of sleep affects many parts of your body, but you may not know that it affects vision as well. Sleep deprivation can contribute to or be a cause of eye strain, dry eyes, tunnel vision, double vision and visual errors.
How to Ensure Healthy Eyesight
Remember, while these activities help your eye health, they can’t repair eye disease or conditions like farsightedness, nearsightedness or astigmatism, which relate to the shape of the eye and how it focuses light toward the retina. But taking care of your eyes, protecting them from sunlight with UV-protective sunglasses, eating and sleeping well and doing a couple of exercises can benefit your vision in the long run.

Don't take your eyes for granted. Take these easy steps to keep your peepers healthy.
- Eat Well
Good eye health starts with the food on your plate. Nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids, lutein, zinc, and vitamins C and E might help ward off age-related vision problems like macular degeneration and cataracts. To get them, fill your plate with:
Green leafy vegetables like spinach, kale, and collards
Salmon, tuna, and other oily fish
Eggs, nuts, beans, and other nonmeat protein sources
Oranges and other citrus fruits or juices
Oysters and pork
A well-balanced diet also helps you stay at a healthy weight. That lowers your odds of obesity and related diseases like type 2 diabetes, which is the leading cause of blindness in adults.
- Quit Smoking
It makes you more likely to get cataracts, damage to your optic nerve, and macular degeneration, among many other medical problems. If you've tried to kick the habit before only to start again, keep at it. The more times you try to quit, the more likely you are to succeed. Ask your doctor for help.
- Wear Sunglasses
The right pair of shades will help protect your eyes from the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays. Too much UV exposure boosts your chances of cataracts and macular degeneration.
Choose a pair that blocks 99% to 100% of UVA and UVB rays. Wraparound lenses help protect your eyes from the side. Polarized lenses reduce glare while you drive.

If you wear contact lenses, some offer UV protection. It's still a good idea to wear sunglasses for an extra layer.
- Use Safety Eyewear
If you use hazardous or airborne materials on the job or at home, wear safety glasses or protective goggles.
Sports like ice hockey, racquetball, and lacrosse can also lead to eye injury. Wear eye protection. Helmets with protective face masks or sports goggles with polycarbonate lenses will shield your eyes.
- Look Away From the Computer Screen
Staring at a computer or phone screen for too long can cause:
Trouble focusing at a distance
Neck, back, and shoulder pain
To protect your eyes:
Make sure your glasses or contacts prescription is up to date and good for looking at a computer screen.
If your eye strain won’t go away, talk to your doctor about computer glasses.
Move the screen so your eyes are level with the top of the monitor. That lets you look slightly down at the screen.
Try to avoid glare from windows and lights. Use an anti-glare screen if needed.
Choose a comfortable, supportive chair. Position it so that your feet are flat on the floor.
If your eyes are dry, blink more.
Rest your eyes every 20 minutes. Look 20 feet away for 20 seconds. Get up at least every 2 hours and take a 15-minute break.
