Improve Eyesight Naturally
September 05, 2012

, A while ago I included a page on my website about raw foods and eyesight. The article Improve Eyesight Naturally, was a good fit.

A friend of mine (not raw) dramatically improved his eyesight using phytonutrients (plant chemicals, raw food are filled with them), eye supplements and eye exercises. His transformation was so dramatic that he went to his eye doctor because he thought his glasses were not “working right.” This is common and normally you are sent home with a stronger prescription. But to his doctor's astonishment, and my friend’s delight, his eyesight was dramatically IMPROVED. Now he only wears prescription glasses when driving.

It is a known fact that glasses and contact lens weaken the eyes. They make the eye muscles lazy and so you have to go to the eye doctor and get stronger glasses year after year; glasses are actually considered prostheses.

After drinking green smoothies, I personally found that my eyes were getting stronger. I, for one, do not ever want to wear corrective lens in any form. I am thankful for my eyes and hope to keep them functioning for a long time without any artificial help.

I am interested in good eyesight. I was concerned when my editor husband would come home after work and complain about his eyes hurting. Like me, he does not wear corrective lenses, but unlike me, he does not drink green smoothies or eat lots of raw plant foods for health.

When I saw a big name (sans glasses) raw food guru talking about improving one's vision with a little gadget called “pinhole glasses,” I was intrigued, so I ordered a pair, and here I am wearing them. I got them for my husband, but of course, I had to try them out first!

I learned that pinhole glasses help to exercise your eyes. Along with eating raw foods that are rich in helpful plant chemicals, pinhole glasses may help to strengthen your eyes. They do take a bit of getting used to and one source said not to wear them when driving, which I think is only common sense. The honeycomb effect that is apparent when the glasses are put on will go away with use as your brain gets used to the lenses.

The concept of pinhole glasses was patented in 1934 by the U.S. Patent Office. I am not an eye doctor, but pinhole glass users claim that they benefit people with eye problems such as cataracts, myopia, astigmatism and presbyopia. Actually, for the price I felt it was worth a try. I knew that if my husband 'poo-pooed' the idea, at least I would have them to strengthen my own vision.

As I wear these glasses and write this to you, I can feel the pinhole glasses working on my eyes. Though it is a good feeling, it is one that I will have to get use to. Realize that I just got these glasses a few hours before I started to write this newsletter. I am also looking forward to watching TV wearing my latest health gadget!

If you would like to try a pair of these pinhole glasses for yourself or to give to a loved one (especially one who has poor vision and/or will not join you in your daily smoothie ritual), you can get them an inexpensive pair of pinhole glasses just by following the link.
