Nearsightedness (myopia) is a common vision condition in which you can see objects near to you clearly, but objects farther away are blurry. The degree of your nearsightedness determines your focusing ability. People with severe nearsightedness can see clearly only objects just a few inches away, while those with mild nearsightedness may clearly see objects several yards away. Nearsightedness may develop gradually or rapidly, often worsening during childhood and adolescence. Nearsightedness tends to run in families.

Symptoms: A person only clearly sees those things which are close up.

Cause: Light is focusing in front of the retina insetad of on it.

Natural remedies for nearsightedness:

  • Every so often, rest your eyes by looking at something at a distance in the sky.
  • Vitamin D (1,000 IU daily) and calcium citrate tablets or powder. Take vitamin C (5,000 mg daily).
  • Do not strain the eyes, thinking that it will help you improve your eyesight. Doing so only weakens the delicate muscles and will result in still more vision problems. Ignore these "better sight without glasses" theories which tell you to strain your eyes in order to improve your vision.
