You’ve probably come across a few articles that promote eye yoga exercises to help you regain your eyesight. There is some level of truth in those. There are no less than 7 muscles in your eye, which are responsible for a variety of motions of the eyeball and the eyelid. Exercising them is unlikely to solve eyesight issues, but it can help relax your eyes and reduce straining risks. 

However, if you’re struggling with astigmatism or myopia, for instance, eye yoga isn’t going to fix your problem. In some instances, you need trained medical assistance to operate or receive the right correction. 

So, how can you improve your eyesight at home when you’re not a qualified optician? Many other external factors can lead to blurry vision, difficulties focussing, loss of eyesight. Some external factors can be regulated in the comfort of your home. Here are some of the most commonly misunderstood eyesight problems that don’t require medical assistance at all! 

High stress

Stress may be invisible, but it can affect your whole body. Some people develop stress-related rashes, for instance. But stress can also affect your vision. Stress raises the levels of adrenaline in the body, which increases pressure on your eyes. Under pressure, your vision can become blurry because your eyes can’t adjust to your environment anymore. How can you tell that stress is affecting your eyes? You need to pay attention to the telltale signs. When your eyes are affected, they can exhibit signs of discomfort to light and motions. It’s not uncommon to experience eye stitching, which in combination with discomfort, blurry vision, and even tiny spots that swim across the vision are likely to be linked to high adrenaline and high blood pressure. Individuals who are prone to chronic stress can benefit greatly from stress management options, whether you opt for yoga or cannabis drops from your local CBD stores. Helping your body relax during periods of high stress will significantly release pressure on your eyes.  

My contact lenses feel blurry

If you wear contact lenses, you know that you should keep your fingers clean when you put them on and remove them. But some contact lenses are designed to be worn for an extended period of time. If you wear contacts for a long time, your eyes will try to keep themselves moist and clean by producing what looks like mucus. It’s the unpleasant discharge you find at the corner of your eye in the morning or throughout the day. Excess mucus could be a sign of irritation or disease. But they can be also triggered by the prolonged wear of contact lenses. When this happens, some of the mucus can stick to the lens, causing your vision to go blurry. Take your contacts off, clean them and give your eyes a little break!

Eat your eyes healthy

Does food help regain your vision? Well, not exactly. Eating carrots will not fix eyesight problems. But eating food that protects your eyes can help reduce signs of strain and fatigue. It can also preserve eye health for longer, fighting irritation, inflammation, and infections more effectively. 

Hopefully, some of these tips can help you tackle some commonly forgotten issues. Your eyes are sensitive to many factors. Therefore, you need to go above and beyond to protect them through your diet and your routine.
