Hi there. Richard here.
Firstly I would like to congratulate you for downloading this report as it is the start of your
journey towards better vision for your eyes.
In “Clearer Vision Today – Take off those rose tinted glasses”, I will be sharing with you
useful information on achieving better eyesight through a variety of ways. And at the
same time talk about some common eye problems. After all, prevention is better than
While the saying “An Eye for an Eye” literally means having to pay back to which a
person who has injured the eye of another, it could also simply mean that our eyes are
so important that nothing else is able to replace it aside from its own form.
What most people are unaware off is the importance of our own eyes. Our eyes are
the windows to our soul and the cameras of our body. They help us to appreciate
colors, the beauty of nature and warn us of impending dangers.
Among the five senses, vision plays the most crucial role in survival. We use our vision to
gauge the distance between steps on a staircase so that our muscles can respond
accordingly and prevent us from stumbling down. We use our vision to calculate the
distance of an oncoming vehicle so that we are able to avoid it. In fact, it’s our eyes
that make us all a safer, healthier and happier person.
Therefore, the ability to see clearly is crucial as we are constantly using it for daily
survival. Some might argue that it’s not such a major problem if one has poor vision as
there are always glasses to correct it: but the question should be, why depend on such
aids when you can have natural clear vision simply just by practicing good eye care
Common Eye Problems
With the eye being such an essential organ, it’s no surprise that it’s also prone to failing
should we not practice good eye care habits and let these common eye problems
occur on a regular basis.
A stye (or sty) develops when an oil gland at the edge of the eyelid comes into contact
with bacteria and becomes infected. Alternatively, it can also be caused by intensive
rubbing of the eyelids. It resembles a pimple on the eyelid and it grows on either the
inside or outside of the eyelid.
Styes are generally harmless as they do not cause any vision problems and it can
happen to anyone. However, do seek the necessary treatments and consult a doctor if
you feel that you might have it.
Here are some of the symptoms and signs of a Sty:
Pain, redness, tenderness and swelling in the affected area. Followed by the
appearance of a small pimple.
Immediate or affected area is swollen and in extreme cases, the entire eyelid
might swell as well.
Frequent watering/tearing in the affected eye.
Increased sensitivity under bright lights.
A feeling that something is in your eye (eye doctors call this “Foreign Body Sensation”
Generally, styes are not contagious. As everyone has this stye causing bacteria in our
body, we are all at an equal risk of developing a stye, even without outdoor
Still, if you do have a stye, you would not want to risk spreading the bacteria to
someone else’s eye. This is in turn might cause them to develop a stye or other
infections. If you do have a stye, do not share pillowcases, washcloths and towels with
any one; and keep your eyes and hands clean at all times.
The minor cases for styes heal on their own within a few days. During this period, you
can speed up the healing process by applying hot compresses for 10 to 15 minutes,
three to four hours a day.
Doing so will relieve the pain and the stye would develop into a head, much like a
pimple. In most cases, the stye will burst, drain and heal without further intervention.
Do let the stye rupture by itself and never attempt to “pop” it like a pimple.
For the more extreme cases, whereby the stye forms on the inside of the eyelid, it might
not heal on its own, so do seek a doctor’s treatment regarding it.
If you have frequent styes, your eye doctor might prescribe an antibiotic ointment to
prevent a recurrence. He/she might also recommend pre-moistened eyelid cleaning
pads for daily eyelid hygiene to reduce the risk of styes.
Conjunctivitis aka Pink Eye
Conjunctivitis aka “Pink Eye” is an inflammation of the conjunctiva. The conjunctiva is a
clear mucus membrane that covers the sclera (the white part of the eye) and lines the
inside of the eyelids. The conjunctiva helps lubricate the eye by producing mucus and
tears. It also contributes to immune surveillance and helps to prevent bacteria from
entering the eye. Pink Eye can be very contagious and may spread quickly if it’s not
treated. Even though pink eye rarely causes eye damage, it can cause the eye to look
The most obvious sign of conjunctivitis would be having a red/pink colored eye, hence
the term”pink eye”. Inflammation would cause the small blood vessels in the
conjunctiva to darken, resulting in a pink/red tint in the white of the eye. This is a sign of
the immune system reacting to a foreign substance.
Symptoms of Pink Eye:
Redness in one or both eyes
Itchiness in one or both eyes
Blurred Vision and light sensitivity
Gritty Feeling in one or both eyes
Discharge in one or both eyes that forms a crust at night
There are several factors that cause a pink eye but the most common trigger factor
would be coming in contact with viruses or bacteria.
Other common causes include:
A chemical splash in the eye
A foreign object in the eye
A clogged tear duct (for newborns)
It is crucial for you to identify the type of conjunctivitis that you have so that the doctor
would be able to provide you with the appropriate treatment. Here are some of the
common types that would make identifying it easier.
Viral Conjunctivitis is caused by the upper respiratory infections and colds. It usually
affects one eye but it can also affect both eyes. Viral Conjunctivitis causes excessive
eye watering and a light discharge. This type of conjunctivitis tends to be more
contagious than the bacterial type.
Like the name, the cause of this type of conjunctivitis is bacterial contact. Bacterial
conjunctivitis affects both eyes and often produces a thicker yellowish green discharge.
It may also be caused by respiratory infection or cold. Bacterial Conjunctivitis is more
common among children rather than adults.
The allergic form of conjunctivitis is caused by an allergy reaction to an allergen like
pollen or foreign substance. Both eyes would be affected in this type of conjunctivitis
and it causes itching and redness in the eyes. The discharge from the eyes would be
white, stringy mucus.
A viral conjunctivitis usually lasts from four to seven days. Viral conjunctivitis can be
highly contagious so seek professional treatment from an eye doctor if you have it.
Avoid contact with others and wash your hands frequently.
A bacterial conjunctivitis would last for about a week. It can be treated with ointment,
eye drops or pills e.g. antibiotic. Course of medication would be determined by the eye
doctor and take it diligently even when the symptoms go away (applies to antibiotics).
For allergies, the conjunctivitis should go away once the allergy is treated and the
allergen is removed. Consult a doctor should you have an allergic conjunctivitis.
For irritants, use tap water to rinse the substance away from the eye for five minutes. The
eye condition should improve eight hours later. If the conjunctivitis is caused by an acid
or alkaline such as bleach, immediately rinse the eyes with loads of water and call your
Our eyes are still susceptible to damage even without having the common eye
problems, as mentioned in the last chapter.
It is crucial to know what your eye’s
kryptonite is and protect them from it to ensure that you have a pair of healthy, strong
Sunlight UV Radiation
The number one factor which damages our eye would be Ultra-Violet (UV) radiation
from the sun. UV radiation comes in two forms, natural and artificial. Either one is able to
damage the eye, affect the tissues and the internal structure such as the cornea and
Short term but excessive exposure to UV rays from daily activities, including reflections of
objects and other reflective surfaces are able to burn the frontal surface of the eye,
resulting in an effect that is somewhat similar to sunburn on the skin.
Long term exposure to UV rays could lead to cataracts, skin cancer around the eyelids
and other eye disorders. These cumulative effects will occur when the eye is exposed to
UV rays for an extended period without adequate eye protection.
The effects are:
Clouding of the eye’s lens that can result in blurring of vision
Snow Blindness (Photokeratitis):
This is a temporary but painful burn to the cornea. This is caused by sun tanning
without sunglasses; reflection off reflective objects like snow, water or concrete
and exposure to artificial light sources such as tanning beds.
This is an abnormal but benign growth in the corner of the eye. It may grow over
the cornea, blocking one’s vision partially and may require surgery for it to be
Skin Cancer around the Eyelids:
This is caused by Basal cell carcinoma, which is the most common type of skin
cancer to affect the eyelids.
Now that we know how harmful UV rays are to our eyes, here are some tips on
protecting your eyes from them.
Look for labels that clearly state the UV protection degree, especially when you
are choosing a pair of sunglasses. It should ideally block 99 -100% of all UVA and
Do regular checks on your sunglasses to fine tune its fitting; inspect its frame or
any other damages.
Choose sunglasses are a match for your face frame and lifestyle. It should be big
enough to cover your eyes from most angles.
For added protection, it is recommended to wear a sun hat or any wide
brimmed hat to go along with your sunglasses. Wide brimmed hats/sun hats will
greatly reduce the amount of UV rays reaching your eyes. Look good and feel
good at the same time!
If you are wearing contact lens, opt for the ones that have UV protection.
Similarly for glasses, go for lenses that have UV protection as well. Consult your
eye care professional for more information on this.
Avoid being outdoors without proper eye protection, especially during
noontime, as the UV rays are the strongest at this hour. However, if you absolutely
must, do bring along your sunglasses, an umbrella or basically, anything that will
shield your eyes from the UV rays.
Keep these tips in mind the next time you head outdoors for a day under the sun or
when shopping for a pair of sunglasses.
As an extra tip, always keep a pair of
sunglasses in your handbag because you never know when you’ll need them.
Computer Screens Are Bad!
While staring at a computer screen over a period of a long time does not necessarily
contribute to eye damage, it can however cause eye strain, which is equally bad as
The cause of the eye strain is mainly attributable to the monitor glare or poor lighting
that will cause us to squint our eyes, which results in the straining of our eye muscle.
Squinting of our eyes over time will result in visual discomfort, headaches and
noticeable eye discomfort.
Here are some tips to prevent your eyes from squinting the next time you spend long
hours on the computer.
Take frequent breaks (every 15 – 30 minutes) to look at something green and real
far away to relax your focus muscle.
Adjust the lighting in the activity that you plan to do. E.g. bright for reading and
slightly dimmer when you are using a computer. Bottom line is to have no glare
while you are working.
Have an ergonomically designed work station that is easy on the eyes to ensure
visual comfort while using your computer for work or study.
It is important to practice these tips as we spend most of our time working on the
computer. Our eyes are equally important as our work/study and they deserve proper
care to ensure optimal performance when we are using them.
You’ve probably heard about a million and one things that will cause bad eye sight but
do you really know which is true or false? We will debunk some of the common myths
for you to have a clearer picture of what is truly bad or good for your eyes.
“Contact lenses can prevent near-sightedness from getting worse”
People have misconceptions that prolonged wearing of contact lenses will cure their
near sightedness such that eventually, they won’t need glasses or contacts any more.
However there is no scientific evidence which clearly shows that prolonged wearing of
in vision or
“Wearing spectacles will cause you to become dependent on them”
Spectacles are used to correct blurry vision. Prolonged wearing does not lead you to
be entirely dependent on them but rather, your eyes will have to adjust to have clearer
“Watching too much TV is bad for my eyes”
Many eye care specialists believe that prolonged watching of television does not
necessarily cause deficiencies in vision. It does however cause eye fatigue and strain,
and in some cases headache. You might need to watch a lifetime of TV before it can
significantly damage your vision though.
“Excessive reading is not among the causes for poor vision”
Studies have shown that excessive reading is one of the top causes for Myopia,
especially so when it is carried out in a dim room. So the next time you want to read a
book by your dim night light, think twice before doing so!
“The food I consume has nothing to do with my eyes”
All types of food consumed will have a direct impact on all organs in the body. Certain
types of food and preparation methods may have negative effect on the eyes which
could lead to poor vision.
“I don’t really need to wear sunglasses”
UV rays have been proven to one of the top causes for visual impairment and
blindness. Hence, wearing sunglasses is imperative, especially for those that are easily
prone to eye problems or already have them.
Now that you have a clearer idea of what’s good and what’s not for your eyes, let’s
move on to how to enhance our eye’s health and performance.
Enhancing Your Eye’s Health & Performance
As the old saying goes, “You are what you eat!” Well, in this case, it’ll be “Your eyes are
what you eat!” You are definitely what you eat and it applies to our eyes as well. A
healthy and balanced diet plays a key role in ensuring our eyes stay strong and lively.
Vitamin A helps by attaching the rod cells in the eyes to form rhodopsin. The role of
rhodopsin in the eyes is to pick up small amounts of light in a dimly lit environment or at
night. Hence, if one does not consume enough Vitamin A, the eyes could become
inefficient at adapting to dark areas or night time conditions. This can be dangerous as
it can cause accidents either walking or driving on the road at night.
Good sources of Vitamin A:
Cold water fishes like sardines and salmons
Berry fruits like Acai Berry, Blue Berry and Wolfberries
Beef liver, Carrots and Kale are rich in Vitamin A. Include at least one serving of one of
these foods into your daily diet if you want to improve your ocular nutrition. Each one of
these foods contains over 250% of the required daily vitamin A intake.
Other good sources of Vitamin A include cantaloupes, oatmeal and raw peaches.
Zinc is a very crucial mineral when it comes to retinal function and overall ocular health.
Without it, Vitamin A will not be transported from the liver over to the eyes. If there is a
lack of Zinc intake in your diet, you will lose the Vitamin A in your system, causing it to be
worthless in terms of ocular nutrition.
Zinc can be found in the following food sources:
Seafood, especially wild eastern oysters
Toasted wheat germ,
You are recommended to consume at least 30mg of Zinc daily in your diet to prevent
development of age related macular degeneration, cataracts as well as improve your
Lutein is the key in ocular nutrition. It is commonly used for treating and preventing of
both age related macular degeneration and cataracts. It prevents macular
degeneration by protecting the macula against oxidative damage.
When your eye is exposed to less damage, it lowers the likelihood that they will
degenerate. Lutein acts as a light filter, preventing the eye from absorbing in too much
light, preventing the formation of cataracts. The overall eye function is enhanced as
well because Lutein helps in decreasing light sensitivity. When your eyes are exposed to
an extremely bright light, Lutein will help the eyes to recover quickly.
Good sources of Lutein:
Green Leafy vegetables like Kale, Spinach and Broccoli
Even though there is no recommended daily intake for Lutein, studies have shown that
for perceivable health benefits, Lutein should be consumed at the quantity of
Do not just focus on a single nutrient but instead, have a variety of them implemented
into your daily diet. Choose healthy fat and high fiber carbohydrates and reduce your
intake of red meat, sugars and refined flour to preserve your vision for tomorrow!
Key Eye Exercises
There has been plenty of speculation if eye exercises do indeed help in curing short
sightedness. Although there has been no concrete evidence to prove that point, eye
exercises do help in improving eye muscles when they are tired out. Eye exercise is
crucial for many of us as we spend the bulk of our time staring at glaring computer
screens to surf the net, do our home work etc. It’s imperative that we use these simple
exercises to make our eyes stronger and less vulnerable to any problems. After all, we
only get a pair in one lifetime right?
Here are simple eye exercises which help to strengthen the eye muscles.
Face straight ahead and look up as far as possible. Move your hairs in a circular
motion, looking right as far as possible, and then circle the eyes down and to the
left. Close the eyes and relax for a few seconds. Repeat the exercise in the
opposition direction, looking up first and then circling to the left. Repeat this
exercise 10 to 15 times.
Imagine that you are looking at a square. Look up to the right corner of the
imaginary square, then down to the left corner, up to the upper left corner and
down to the lower right corner. Repeat it in the opposite direction. Repeat this
exercise 10 to 15 times.
Roll your eyes in complete circles, up, right, down and left. Repeat it in the other
direction. Continue to do so until your eyes begin to feel slightly tired.
Shut your eyes and squeeze them together as tightly as possible. Open your
eyes. Repeat this exercise 10 to 15 times.
Cross your eyes and stare at the tip of your nose. Hold the position as long as you
can and then close and relax your eyes. Begin with two or three repetitions and
work up to at least 10 repetitions.
Focus your eyes on the spot between your eyebrows for a few seconds. Close
your eyes and relax for a few seconds. Repeat this exercise 10 more times.
Go outside and focus at something that is green and at a lengthy distance.
Looking at objects that are a relatively long distance away after a long use of
the computer helps to work on the eye focusing muscles. Hold this position for 5
Choose something that’s about 25 feet away and try to focus your vision on it as
clearly as possible. Hold this position for 5 seconds.
Look at something mid range. Try to focus as clearly as possible. Hold this position
for 5 seconds.
Do this exercises several times a day.
Take a few deep breathes before you begin
Make yourself comfortable by leaning forward on a desk or with your elbows
resting on your knees. Close your eyes.
Place your two hands over your eyes with the cup of your palm covering your
eyes, your fingers on your forehead and the heel of your hand will rest on your
cheekbone. Make sure you can blink freely and you are not putting too much
pressure on your eyes.
Alternatively, you can try out the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) eye exercises if
you are interested in TCM. The difference between the Western and Chinese eye
exercises would be each targets different areas of the face. The Western practitioners
target the eye muscles while the TCM practitioners target the acupuncture points
around the face, which is believed to help in treating different problems that occurs in
the head area i.e. headaches, migraine etc.
Massaging of the “Yuyao”
“Yuyao” is the inner aspect of the eyebrows. Once you have identified them,
press your thumbs against the 2 points in a circular motion, counting to 8 beats
per cycle. Do the exercise 8 times.
Treatment for: inflammation of the cornea.
Massaging of “Zanzhu”
“Zanzhu” points are located on both sides of the nasal bridge. Place your thumb
or index finger on the points. Press it downwards and massage upwards,
counting to 8 beats per cycle. Do the exercise 8 times.
Treatment for: headache and blurred vision.
Massaging of “Shibai”
“Shibai” points are on your cheeks. To locate them, draw a vertical line from the
pupils of your eyes and a horizontal line from the sides of your nose. The cross
point of these 2 lines is where your Shibai point is.
Once identified, press your index fingers on the Shibai points, supporting your
thumbs on the jaw angles, with the middle, ring and little fingers on both sides of
your chin. Massage the points in a circular movement, counting to 8 beats per
cycle. Do the exercise for 8 times.
Treatment for: facial paralysis.
Pressing on “Taiyang” points
“Taiyang”, also known as the temple points, are located at the most hollow
areas of your temples. Press on the “Taiyang” points with your thumbs and flex
the remaining fingers into a fist.
Using the knuckles of your index fingers, slide over from the middle to the side
aspect of the upper eye sockets for the first 4 beats. Continue to do the same
over the lower eye sockets for the second 4 beats of one cycle. Repeat the
exercise 8 times.
Treatment for: headache and eye diseases
Once you have completed all 4 steps, look at a distance for a short while to induce a
total relaxation of your eye muscles.
Do not expect any instant cure from either Oriental or Western eye exercises. You are
encouraged to carry out eye exercises regularly on a daily basis to improve your eye
muscles. As for which exercise works best, it’s up to you to decide which method suits
you or your lifestyle better. Go ahead, have fun exploring the different eye exercises
and enjoy the benefits that come along with them.
I hope you found the entire report useful in a practical sense. The importance of
practicing good eye habits is so strong that I cannot emphasize any further. People
always treasure things more when they lose it. However, it will be too late for regrets
when we lose our vision due to poor eye care habits. Treasure your eyes and vision, so
that you would not have to deal with regrets later or fear losing them. Do go for your
regular eye checks and make an effort to implement the above measures for a clearer
vision today. After all, we only have a single pair of eyes in this lifetime and it’s our
responsibility to ensure that they are well taken care of.
If you’re wearing glasses right now, I have good news for you. I have just released a
very simple and highly effective program showing you how you can achieve 20/20
perfect vision easily. Yes! That’s even if you are wearing glasses right now.
Here’s the solution:
