4. Almonds

Almonds are high in vitamin E, antioxidants, and omega-3 fatty acids which are well-known to promote healthy vision.  Eating about 10 almonds every day is all you need to help keep your eyes healthy.


5. Bilberries

This is another well-known herb that promotes eye health. Bilberries can improve your night vision as it stimulates the regeneration of the purple component of your retina.  It also provides protection from glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration. Bilberries contain powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. Eat one half cup of fresh, organic bilberry fruit or take supplements.  Take about 160 mg of bilberry twice per day, three times per week.


6. Eye Exercises

Doing exercises can make your eye muscles stronger and more flexible, in the same way exercises can make other muscles in your body stronger and more flexible.  Doing eye exercises daily combat eye strain and improve focus.

  • Roll your eyes in a clockwise direction for a few seconds, then reverse and roll them counter clockwise for a few seconds. Do this about 4 times and be sure you blink your eyes between each set.
  • Hold a pencil at arm’s length and then focus on it. Slowly, bring the pencil closer to your nose, then farther away until you can no longer focus on it. Repeat this about 10 times each day.
  • Flutter your eyelids quickly. Blink about 30 or 40 times as quickly as you can without closing your eyes tightly. Do this twice, and then close your eyes for about 20 seconds to allow them to rest. Do this twice per day.
  • Focus your eyes on a distant object for about three minutes per day.  You can focus on the moon, a bird in a tree, anything that is fairly far away. Do this once per day for about 3 minutes at a time.
