Hey whats up! My name is Sjartan, come from Norway, and now I’m making this
video for you about eyesight and vision improvement. I’ve
been improving my vision for about a year now and it’s improved quite a bit. That’s
kind of hard for some people to believe, but eyesight improvement is real exercises do work and anyone can do them. Before starting doing eye exercises, I actually discovered it two or three years before I started
doing the exercises. I’m a pretty open minded person so I became very interested in it and read a
lot about. I read this book by doctor William H Bates which was very interesting. He had some
wonky ideas, but interesting nonetheless and I always planned to like – “ah someday
I’m gonna improve my vision” and I didn’t want to
wear my glasses and I didn’t want to get eye contacts or get LASIK or anything. It was like “ah someday I’m gonna improve my vision”
but I never did it. I was such a dabbler that I just never
committed to it, and therefore I didn’t even know whether
it worked or not. I was very doubtful whether it worked or
not. But that changed about a year ago when I got a job working as a
telephone interviewer and sitting there between calls I would do this one exercise. There was
lot of downtime so I did this exercise a lot and after
only a week, with like two or three work days, I
noticed a distinct improvement in my vision. I was like damn! My vision is better! It works! I was like cool let’s do this, so about a month or two after that I
really committed to doing exercises, and I’ve been doing them
daily since then. And I’ve been doing them now for maybe
11, almost 12 months, maybe. And my vision is a lot better. And in this video I am going to explain
to you how I did it, what I did, and how you can
do it. So the first thing you want to do is get rid of your old bad vision habits and implement new ones.
That being first of all, relaxing your eyes. My eyes were not relaxed at all, they are very tense, and
I don’t mean my eyes, I mean the muscles around my
eyes. They were very tense all the time and I have no idea. I had to close my eyes and just
completely relax my face and just notice whether there was any
tension there and just drop it. In the beginning when I
did this I noticed that I was almost all the way all the time tense around my eyes and I
had no idea. You can’t really feel it
unless you pay attention to it. So after a few months of doing that, naturally my eyes are way more
relaxed now. They are pretty much relaxed all the time and I
don’t have to worry about it that much, but in the beginning, I had to change that, and make it a habit, so that my eyes were relaxed. So that’s
something you want to do. You should never ever squint by the way.
Never squint to see something you should never strain to see something
that you can’t, you should always accept what you see
and if you need to see it you can move
closer. Or if it’s like an important situation, you can squint i guess, you can make a little hole, make a little tiny hole with
your hand and look through it, which makes everything
clear. I can see pretty damn clear like that, and the next habit that you should implement is while doing near work, close work, meaning looking at a computer, or reading, you want to every five or ten minutes
look away into the distance and blink once or twice. Or actually just blink however many times you
like, actually you should blink a lot. A lot of people don’t blink enough and
that’s not good. You should be blinking at least once every five seconds I think
that it is. Yeah and I don’t think I’m very good
at blinking enough, but and I try my best. And then…. Yeah, we have the four exercises that I’ve
done. The first one is the bread and butter
of vision improvement, it is palming. Palming is where you put both your hands over your eyes like this,
the other one, and you just envision total blackness, and relax your eyes. You can also use a sleep mask if you’re
lazy like me, I i’m too lazy to hold my hands up so I got a sleep mask to do
it. Now how this works, is that by seeing complete and total
blackness, it’s actually pretty hard in the
beginning, in the beginning you see like all these colors and like shapes and stuff, but
over time they will go away. And the more you
practice this the more blackness you will see, and the
more blackness the better, because when you see total blackness your eyes
are more relaxed. It’s actually your retinal cells that
become relaxed Your retinal cells in the back of your eyes,
they are the ones that are… They’re responsible for… They get hit by light and they send
the message back to the brain about what color they’re seeing, they are the
rods and cones right. So by seeing total blackness you’re
actually relaxing them maximally. They’re totally relaxed when
they see total blackness. And this is why we do this exercise.
Somehow this makes them better I’m not sure how but yeah it makes
them better. And you see things more clearly, colors
are vivid also This is very strange and interesting but
colors for me, seem way more vivid after doing a lot of palming. It sounds very
strange but yeah. I do… You should palm every day, and palm after every other exercise. That’s the
the typical way of doing it. I palm 20 min at least 20 minutes a day because I
combine it with meditation. Now while I meditate I’m actually
focusing on my breath and not seeing total blackness, but I still wear the eye
mask and see complete darkness. so I’m I’m pretty sure that it works for my vision improvement also and I also palm now and then throughout
the day just relax my eyes a bit. And the next exercise that I’ve done is
called shifting. Shifting is an exercise that I got from
Yoga for Your Eyes I will link Yoga for Your Eyes It’s by Meir Scheider, it’s this funky
dude who was born pretty much blind but got his vision back doing exercises. So this exercise involves looking at the
smallest detail you can, and looking at another point, another
point, another point, basically shifting your vision around
object for instance. This might be a little hard to grasp so I’m gonna link this article by this
dude named David and he seems to know a lot
about it I read his article and it was very good
and actually help me with my shifting For instance, with shifting you wanna
look from.. if you were to look at a square, if you
were to shift around this thing I have here on my wall. We look at
this corner that corner that corner that corner that corner, so you’re basically
tracing around it. But you don’t want to move your vision
slowly across like the border you want to look at the point point
point point point. You can look halfway too if you
want to, just look at a different point and you want to be constantly shifting, not straining to see what you can’t see
but just accepting what you can see. And as your vision improves you can look at
smaller details such as this thing in the middle you can shift around the thing, shift around the
ball and then yeah and that is shifting. Shifting is the exercise that it did at
my work between calls, and which I which made my vision better after just a week, so I’m 100 percent
sure that shifting works, and I’m also 100 percent sure that
palming works. Next is a very funky exercise called
sunning. Sunning is an exercise where you expose
your eyes to sunlight or actually not totally, because your
eyes are closed. You look straight at the sun and close
your eyes. You look left and right aiming to do one hundred and eighty
degrees, maybe even turning your torso also to do
it. And you do that for a while maybe a few
minutes, and then you will palm a few minutes, and
then you do it again. Eyes closed, completely relaxed. noticing… and this is um… you should read Meir Schneider’s book to
know how to do this exactly but it’s a good exercise. It’s help me with my sunlight
sensitivity, my eyes used to be really sensitive to lights, but it’s helped a
lot with that. And I’m not 100 percent sure whether it actually
improves your vision, but it does definitely decrease your sensitivity, your eyes’ sensitivity to
sunlight. So that’s something that I do it for. and the last exercise that I’ve
done is the peripheral exercise, also from yoga
for your eyes. It evolves blocking your middle field of vision, looking
straight forward, and stimulating the sides of your vision. Usually by turning your head, and moving something like your fingers, I
do this usually, or just moving up and down,
whatever. You can do whatever you want. You can wave like a piece of paper just stimulating your peripheral vision. Now, the way they do it in Yoga for Your Eyes is that they stick a piece of paper on their nose but I found that hard to do, so what
I did was I found this old headband. I put it on like this, and then I cut out these
pieces of paper, which I would stick underneath and which would block out my field
of vision, in the middle. Like that. So I would do that, I cut out three pieces of
paper. Smallest one, and then the biggest one. Starting out doing this exercise using the largest piece of paper, I could just
barely, barely, see anything on the sides. And I, when I started this exercise I thought that my peripheral vision was
excellent. I thought it was maxed out, I thought I
couldn’t see anything more, but as I did this exercise, and I haven’t
even done this exercise that many times, maybe thirty times in total, and it… like the results are
crazy. Your your field of vision literally
expands to the sides, as your, I guess it’s the retinal cells responsible
for your peripheral vision, that become stimulated so much, they get kind of exercised and because of that apparently they get better, stronger, I
don’t know, but you can see more to the sides and
it’s awesome. I love it. It’s like my, my vision is more panoramic right now than it used to be. So yeah, using this, at first I
could only see a tiny bit on the sides, but now I can see… like so much more, I can see a bunch. I mean I can see my door, I
can see it’s open, I can see into the bathroom to my right, I can see my
window to the left, and the curtains. I wouldn’t be able
to do that before! So yeah that’s an exercise I like a
lot. Those are the exercise that I’ve
used, mainly those. There are some others but I haven’t used
them that much, but I can vouch for these four exercises:
palming, shifting sunning, and the peripheral exercise. They are the bomb diggity. There are a bunch of other vision
improvement programs and products out there, and I’m sure a lot of
them work, maybe some of them aren’t as effective, I
don’t know, I’ve haven’t tried them out but, this is something that works. There are so
many skeptics who don’t believe in this, like they won’t
accept it. For some reason it’s just so hard for
people to accept that this actually is a reality, that you can
improve your vision. I’ve told… I actually refrain… I
avoid telling people about this because people think I’m weird,
people don’t believe in it. I told my parents before I started
out doing these exercises like “I’m planning on improving my vision with exercises” and they.. they just.. they didn’t even answer me. They didn’t comment or anything. They just kinda looked away and I I could tell yeah it’s pretty obvious they thought it
was total bullshit because they both have pretty bad eyesight and yeah, they’re a little old, they’re over 50 so they’re so ingrained in the reality that
you can’t improve your vision naturally, so an idea like that, it just it just doesn’t compute. They won’t
accept it into their reality, it messes with their reality basically. And now they actually believe in it
because my vision has improved. Vision improvement isn’t… The thing about
vision for a min is that it is slow. It is slow, tedious progress and that is why a lot of people… I think that’s one of
the reasons why a lot of people don’t actually do this. People are lazy and people won’t
actually try and do them for a while to figure out if it actually works before
dismissing it as some stupid idea. I’ve done it for about a year now and my
my vision has improved from about -3 to -2 and that’s not an amazing difference, but it is. For me it’s an amazing
difference, I mean I see way better than I used to and I’m very appreciative of that. But I’d still like to improve it more,
and it’s going to take time. You’re basically transforming your
eyes and it’s just like normal exercise, you can’t .. you can’t go to the gym for a month and expect
to be like this bodybuilder beefy dude. I mean.. It takes time, takes work! Just like
anything else. It’s almost like you’re learning a
skill, the skill of seeing. And learning any skill takes time, you
have to practice. And that means that if you are planning on doing this, you have to commit. This is
not easy. This takes time. It is actually very
very easy, the exercises, I mean I described them, but it is not easy because
it takes so much time, work, and effort. You have to commit if you want this. It all comes down to
how bad you want it, and I wanted a pretty badly. I did not
want to get laser surgery, and I hate wearing my glasses
so yeah. I don’t wanna wear glasses, I don’t
want to be dependent on these little things, these stupid
little things that I have to put on my head. I mean, do you
think cavemen wore classes? What do you think cavemen did when they had shitty vision? Do you think they had shitty vision at
all? Probably not, because we’re not designed to be sitting and
reading and shit. And that’s one of the reasons why we do
have developed bad vision. I think it was in China or
somewhere, that.. there were so many, I saw some statistic, but
there are so many people now that are getting bad vision. It was so much more than the previous
generations, and it is because of what you do
with your eyes, it’s bad vision habits. So yeah it’s something you have to work
on. For anyone who wants to do this, good look. I’m not saying you’re gonna
need it but you have to commit to it, you
have to be dedicated and I can tell you it is it worth it. It
is free, it only takes time, and yeah, it’s just awesome in general. If you have any questions at all leave a comment, send me a message, and I
will respond, most likely. Because I like
helping people and that’s one of the reasons why I’m making this video,
or that is the reason I’m making this video. I’m… I’m giving back to the internet because
I got all this information for free from the internet so just giving back, and I wanna help
out people. And I wish you the best. Bye.
