How to Prevent Aging Vision: Glasses or Eye Exercises for Presbyopia?

Aging vision (or presbyopia) occurs over the age of 40. It can expose an existing predisposition towards farsightedness, which makes close up objects blurry.

If you are affected by aging vision – fear not. It may be possible to prevent aging vision with eye exercises. This article will explain how you may be able to save your vision from any further deterioration as you age and delay potentially blinding vision disorders like macular degeneration, glaucoma and cataracts.

What Are The Causes of Aging Vision?

Presbyopia is the hardening of the lens and tightening of the eye muscles, often associated with aging. This inflexibility reduces the ciliary muscle’s ability to change the shape of the lens to focus on near point objects.

It is different from hyperopia (farsightedness), which is caused by the eyeball being too short, focusing light rays at a point behind the retina.

If you suffer from aging vision, you have two options to correct your eyesight:

  1. Glasses / contact lenses
  2. Eye exercises

Note: Laser eye surgery is NOT suitable for treating aging vision. People who have LASIK to treat an underlying condition of farsightedness still need to wear reading glasses after the age of 45. Read my full breakdown of hyperopia and LASIK.

I’ll now briefly compare the two available treatment options:

1. Treating Aging Vision with Reading Glasses

Reading glasses work by refracting the light differently into your eye and creating a sharp image on the retina, enabling you to see clearly.

But glasses merely correct aging vision on a superficial level. It’s like slapping on a band-aid to hide the wound underneath.

Actually, it’s worse than that, because a band-aid actually has a purpose in protecting the wound while it heals. In contrast, wearing glasses serves no purpose in improving your vision on a fundamental level. Indeed, corrective lenses have been scientifically documented to make eyesight worse:

How Glasses Make Your Natural Vision Worse

Dr Earl Smith of the University of Houston College of Optometry fitted various types of corrective lenses on monkeys with normal vision. He found that within weeks, monkeys fitted with nearsighted lenses adapted to the lenses and became nearsighted. Likewise, monkeys with farsighted lenses became farsighted. The same thing happened with lenses designed for astigmatism.

The implications of this study are huge – not least because humans and monkeys have almost identical visual systems. You have probably noticed the effect yourself when you get a new pair of reading glasses. Your close-up vision appears ultra-clear and you have to get used to the stronger lenses. Then, within days, they feel normal and are eventually too weak altogether.

In my opinion, wearing glasses is not a true solution for treating aging vision. It merely masks the problem and risks further deterioration. In later life, a third of people who wear lenses end up with one or more serious eye diseases by the time they are 70 years old, simply because their natural vision is so poor.

2. Treating Aging Vision with Eye Exercises

Eye exercises work by stimulating integral components of the eye in a manner that is not achieved through normal daily use. Within days or weeks, you can notice first-hand improvements in your natural vision.

In my story, I explain how I improved my long distance vision using an eye exercise program called Rebuild Your Vision. I also completely cured my astigmatism. The same eye exercise program can be used to treat aging vision.

According to Rebuild Your Vision, the aging eye becomes hard and inflexible, making it harder to create a sharp focus. Eye exercises teach you to work these muscles and keep them functioning naturally as you age, so that you can see clearly without glasses. Learn more here.

Eye exercises must be the best kept secret in optometry.

It’s a tragedy that we are brainwashed into wearing glasses (which studies show weaken vision over time) or having LASIK eye surgery (which comes with real risks like corneal damage).

Don’t give up on your eyesight just because you started wearing glasses all those years ago… reverse your aging vision with eye exercises.

Want Better Eyesight  
"My 49th birthday is right around the corner and I do not need glasses anymore. I can do my artwork and I can read like a normal person. Life is good!" - Lynda Makara, MT, on Rebuild Your Vision
"I noticed a big improvement only after 3 days... I don't need my glasses anymore. I'd recommend this program to anyone who wants to improve their vision and not be handicapped with glasses anymore." - Merv Weselowski, BC, on Rebuild Your Vision
"I did the program for 25-35 minutes a day for a full 30 days... I started seeing an improvement in my vision after a couple of weeks. My vision was an awful 20/400. I went to the optometrist to see how much I improved. She said "your eyes got a lot better" and asked me what I did. She didn't have much else to say after that except "your vision is now 20/200". I only wish I would have known about this technique 10 years ago before my vision got so bad." - Roger Sigler, TX, on Rebuild Your Vision
"My son very successfully used your program. After about 30 days of using your training he improved from 20/70 and 20/50 to 20/30 and 20/20. Thank you!" - Ralf Haug, FL, on Rebuild Your Vision
