Could near-sightedness be naturally curable?

Postby Earlz » Sun Jan 03, 2010 5:40 am UTC

Hello, I have discovered this pastebin on the internet http://pastebin.com/f3ca288e8

It sorta makes sense, and I'm near sighted, so I'm considering trying to do this whenever I can think of it and seeing if it helps any(cause what is there to lose?)... It's not like I'm blind though, and my vision has actually stayed the exact same for about 3 years now(and I'm bout to be 19) so I figure it'd be really neat if I could actually improve my vision..

any comments on this? Another internet hoax? Does it actually make sense? (is there an eye doctor in the house?)

According to a friend of mine who did eye exercises something like this, it helped a bit. He was able to avoid getting glasses for a few years, until the post-40 rot set in and he needed bifocals.

I have a window with a decent view at work, so I stop frequently (each ~30 mins) to focus on things of varying distance, including the North Shore mountains. I have no idea if this has helped, but my prescription has been pretty stable for over ten years despite constant computer use. (I'm just into my 40s, so I haven't had the crappy-nearsight thing happen yet. I don't think there's a cure for that, except laser surgery that fixes that and simultaneously buggers your farsight.)

Do you enjoy coding in Ruby?

I fail to see how this is relevant... if your making a reference to the microtext in my signature, it was not me that made that program... but yes I do enjoy coding in ruby.

I'm near-sighted and hate it. I'm almost at the point where I legally need glasses to drive. I'll give this a whirl.

I'm not sure that eye exercises will actually do something, but I've seen some people gradually lose their myopia with age and gain hyperopia instead. I doubt constant eye exercises would have done much for them.
