There is no natural treatment to decrease myopia (nearsightedness).  If your refraction is stable and you are a candidate, you could consider LASIK.  Also a procedure called ortho-keratology or corneal reshaping could be tried; you wear contact lens during sleep to re-shape your cornea so that you see clearly during the day without glasses or contacts.  The re-shaping lens needs to be worn every night.
