  • Will eye exercises cure myopia?


    My parents always insist on me doing eye exercises to make my vision better. These include things like intorsion, extorsion, rotating my eyeball, blinking numerous times to focus on blurry text. Is this effective and will it cure my myopia


    Many people, understandably, want to find "natural" cures for ditching their eyeglass needs. But none of the suggested methods—like herbal supplements or eye exercises —have been shown to have any effect.

    There are new treatments available that can slow the progression of myopia in some children. An ophthalmologist can explain the options, which include atropine eye drops and special contact lenses. But these treatmentseven if effective—will not reverse the myopia you already have. They only keep your myopia from getting worse.
