A 44-year-old member asked:
If you're near-sighted or have astigmatism, do eye exercises really help?

Astigmatism: These are refractive errors that are usually corrected with glasses or contact lenses. Eye exercises will not usually help correct for this. A detailed examination with an eye care provider is essential to determine the extent of your refractive error and whether glasses or contacts are necessary to optimize your vision.
