The two most often seen problems with people's vision are usually myopia and presbyopia. They are also known as near-sighted and far-sighted respectively. As the name implies, they both affect the vision adversely in judging how we see objects at certain distances. Did you know that both of these problems can be cured naturally – without glasses or contacts? The reason for this is that studies have shown that all eye problems are generally traced back to bad habits linked to early childhood development as well as excess eye strain.
Myopia, or near-sightedness, sets in because the eye has become elongated. The primary cause of this problem is only focusing on objects which are nearby for excess periods of time. More often than not, this is caused in school kids early on, as they are required to look at textbooks which cause the eyes to focus at close range.
Myopia manifests itself as a result of eye strain and mental stress. It has been shown that the stress which school children come under is tremendous. They are required to learn about subjects which can be very boring, and this causes the learning process to become more difficult. Because looking at boring material over prolonged periods of time causes the eyes to strain, studying in this way without a break can be very harmful to vision.
Near-sightedness can be attributed to stress and other psychological issues. Myopia can be a symptom of someone being nervous or anxious about things to come. A person may be afraid of their future in the subconscious, and this can also cause the eyes to harmfully strain. Likewise, those who are only comfortable in "their own world" or "comfort zone" may also suffer from myopia for the very same reasons.
Far-sightedness, or presbyopia, is when you can see things far away, but not close to you. People start to contract presbyopia when in their 40s. Presbyopia causes the lenses in your eyes to lose its elasticity and flexibility. The truth of the matter is, we can still train the muscles around the eyes to become more elastic, even if the lens has lost some elasticity. While many people erroneously attribute presbyopia to getting older, they usually just get glasses and forget about it. Unfortunately, glasses do more harm than good, in this regard, as they do nothing for the physical properties of the eyes.
Myopia and presbyopia can be completely avoided by simply allowing your eyes to move every day. If you are studying or reading things close up for a long period each day, take some time to focus on things in the distance. To prevent presbyopia, do the opposite.
