Improving Vision - by relaxation?

As part of one's health, visual acuity is pretty important. It's our primary sense and right at the top of the senory-motor hierarchy of vision-balance-proprioception.

My distance vision sux. well, has sucked.

Over the past couple of weeks have been exploring practices to improve near-sighted vision - perhaps reduce near-sighted vision? - and as the effect seems to be continuing well, thought i'd share the approach here. Here's the overview at begin2dig.

The summary approach:
  • take one snellen chart;
  • stand the requisite distance away
  • look at the chart - don't stare
The wild thing is that waiting without straining, relaxing, genlty shifting head position, will bring in what may seem a startling clarity - if only initially momentarily.

Big take away for me: this practice takes time - not effort but uneffort of time.

Sunny days - good daylight -seems to make a world of difference for initial work.

Would be interested if anyone else has explored improving near sighted vision performance.
