Near-sighted (Myopia) Eye Natural Remedies
Myopia means poor distant vision. It affects about 30% of people in the Unites States. It happens frequently when children read a lot at a young age. Studies show that those in confined areas develop myopia more often. It is also seen more in those people who use computers or watch television too much.
Treatment usually results in glasses. Contact lenses can cause loss of oxygen and create extra blood veins in the eyes. Lasik surgery is another option but may cause dry eyes.
Use natural treatment to help the vision over a period of time. Eye exercises may be helpful as well as good nutrition. Other ideas include not focusing on the computer or television. Nutritional supplements include a whole-food multi-vitamin by New Chapter for superior absorption.
Natural Healing Protocol: Combining supplements will do more to support your body's ability to function properly than using just one. Use the following remedies for best results -- your ability to heal will depend on the severity and length of time your symptoms have been present.
