A Natural Approach To Health
Living With Blurry Vision
I had a question the other day about blurry vision.
Two of the most complex organs of your body, your eyes provide you with instant visual feedback of the world around you.
Your eyeball is a sphere about 1″ in diameter and is covered by a tough outer layer called the sclera, or “white of the eye.”
Underneath the sclera is the middle layer of your eye, the choroid, which contains the blood vessels serving your eye.
The front of your eye is covered by a transparent membrane called the cornea.
Behind the cornea is a fluid-filled chamber called the anterior chamber.
Behind that is the pigmented iris, and in the center of your iris is the pupil.
Your eye also contains 2 important fluids.
On the outside of your eyeball are 6 muscles to move your eyes.
Under your upper eyelids are the lacrimal glands, which secrete tears.
At the inner corners of your eyelids are your tear ducts.
What we think of as the simple act of seeing is actually a complex, multistep process occurring continuously and at breathtaking speed.
Light enters your eye through your pupil, which changes size depending on the amount of light entering it.
As light enters your eye, it’s focused by the lens.
The lens becomes fatter or flatter depending on the distance to what you’re focusing on.
The lens projects light onto your retina, where special pigment absorbs the light and forms a corresponding image.
Finally, this image is sent by your optic nerve to your brain, which interprets the image.
One major contributor to eye trouble is poor diet, specifically the denatured, chemical- and preservative-laden foods most Americans eat daily.
A deficiency of just one vitamin can lead to many eye problems.
Supplementation with the correct vitamins and minerals can help prevent or correct eye trouble.
Vision may become blurry for any number of reasons.
Refractive error (nearsightedness, farsightedness, and/or astigmatism) results in chronically blurry vision which can usually be overcome with corrective lenses.
Eyestrain, fatigue, and excessive tearing can cause a temporary blurring of vision.
A disturbance in the fluid balance in your body can also result in blurry vision.
Recurring blurry vision can result from not getting enough of the light-sensitive pigment in your eye called visual purple, which is made of vitamin A and protein.
Any light entering your eyes breaks down part of the visual purple, which sets up nerve impulses to tell your brain what your eyes are seeing.
If there isn’t enough pigment present, a time delay occurs between the time your eyes focus on an object and the time your brain forms an image of it.
This is experienced as blurred vision.
To deal with blurry vision it’s beneficial to:
*Drink 6-8 cups of purified water daily.
*Include the following in your diet: broccoli, raw cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, green vegetables, squash, sunflower seeds, and watercress.
*Eliminate sugar and white flour from your diet.
*Some people consider laser surgery as a viable option for this problem.
*Never use hair dyes containing coal tar on your eyelashes or eyebrows; doing so can cause injury or blindness. Although coal tar dyes are legal, marketing them for eyebrows isn’t.
*Avoid eyestrain and smoke-filled rooms.
*Eliminate toxic cosmetics, eye care, and personal care products.
*Eliminate chlorinated shower/bath water, which could be irritating.
