I am 15 and I went to the eye doctor 5 months ago and found out that my left eye was -2.75 and my right eye was -3.00. Now, I think it has gotten worse. I want to know what I can do to help my eyes get better, if it's possible, or slow down the whole "receding" of my vision while growing old.
I have contact lenses, which I only wear on schooldays since I have soccer practice every weekday. I try to take them out right when I get home. Should I be wearing my glasses more often or wear nothing at all? I also use eye drops. Do they do anything to my eyes?
I also had my "stupid" phase (2 years) where I was completely addicted to computer games and I used to see very well but the computer really did something to my eyes. Should I stay away from my iPod touch? Will it kill my vision like the computer did?
What can I eat to make my eyes better? Any exercised?
Lex , No worry , its all natural, your power will be stablized once you reach 18yrs ,
if you have cosmetic problem , or tired by wearing glass you can have lasik( glass free and contact lens free) procedure done but you need to be more than 19yrs . still that time you need to wait ,
And reagrding about the useage of computer no need to be worry , keep the pc and i pod at 45 degree viewing angle ( which means on your lap while sitting ) and remember to blink your eye atleast 10 sec once , these will solve your eye strain due to computer , to maintain helathy eye , ( take food contains Carotiniods like carrot ) omega 3 fatty acid in fish , which will help your eye ( vitamin A rich food )
Consult your ophthalmologist for future more details , feel free to reply.
Just relax ,
You dont have any problem, The stuff which was mention above me was normal diet , which is good for eyes thats all nothing doing with to reduce your myopic.
it depends but no need to be panic , you will be fine
