There are many things one can do at home, including lifestyle changes and various home remedies that will improve their overall eyesight.
Here are 6 natural remedies that can be followed for a healthier eyesight –
1. Amla
Known as the wonder herb with multiple health benefits, Amla is loaded with high percentage of Vitamin C, nearly 20 times more than Orange. Vitamin C plays significant role in maintaining retinal cells and also in promoting healthy capillaries. Practice drinking Amla Juice on empty stomach when you wake up every morning. You can also have Amla juice with 1 tsp of honey.
2. Eye exercises
Our eyes also require exercises to strengthen the ciliary muscles and to maintain the flexibility of eye lens to improve vision. Once daily, rotate your eyeballs up, down, sideways and in clockwise and anti-clockwise directions to relieve stress from the eyes. Focusing exercises in which the focus is shifted back and forth between objects kept at various distances are also advised for reinforcing the muscles around eyes.
3. Carrots
Carrots are loaded with beta carotene and vitamin A which help immensely in eye health. Munching on raw carrots or drinking carrot juice is an effective way to ensure you get enough nutrients from the vegetable to improve your vision.
4. Fennel
Fennel contains antioxidants and essential nutrients which slows down the progression of cataracts and promote healthy eyes.
Take 7 Almonds, 2 tablespoon Fennel and 1 tablespoon sugar in a blender and grind them into fine powder. Before going to bed, eat one tablespoon of this powder, followed by a glass of warm milk. Practice it regularly for 40 days.
5. Spinach
This leafy vegetable is also a good source of vitamin A and beta carotene along with high quantities of lutein and zeaxanthin which are beneficial for healthier eyesight. Add raw spinach to fruit smoothies or make a soup with it or cook with pulses for a diet that promotes sharp vision.
6. Almonds
Almonds are a remarkable source of Vitamin E and many other essential antioxidant agents. Eating almonds every day can improve your eyesight to a great extent. Just soak a few almonds in water overnight and eat them in the morning for healthy eyes.
