Conclusion #32 – Improve Your Vision By Giving Up Glasses

By Allen Rinehart

It’s been about two months since I decided to stop wearing my contacts and glasses and I have to say that it’s one of the smartest decisions I’ve made so far.  Having worn corrective lenses for the last 14 years, it’s such as rewarding feeling to see clearly with my own eyes.

Don’t get me wrong, it hasn’t been easy.  I’ve struggled to see my computer each day and I’ve walk around sometimes not being able to see everything around me clearly.  But once I got over the fear that I need contacts to do everything, my eyes started to improve.  Here are some observations I learned from my month of naked vision.

I haven’t measured my eyesight recently, but it’s not 20/20.  I still have some farsightedness but it keeps getting better everyday.  If you currently wear glasses, here’s some advice on what you can do to lessen your dependence on corrective lenses and eventually regain your vision.

For now I’m going about my days without contacts.  I’m on deployment right now, so there’s not much for me to do expect go to work everyday on my ship.  I’m thinking about starting an exercise routine for my eyes soon. Possibly incorporating some changes in my diet.  All I know is for now, I’m convinced that I don’t need to wear corrective lenses all day.

UPDATE – 12/16/2012

I ended up not wearing contacts or glasses for about seven months.  I started wearing contacts again right after my deployment, but I’ve recently switched over to testing uncorrected glasses.  Go here to read more about it.
