Poor eyesight: A complete examination by an ophthalmolgist a physician either md or do is needed to determine if it is from the eyes or other organ systems, a complete family and personal history is needed icluding the use of any drugs or supplements.

Glasses: Rule number one: you should see an eye doctor to make sure you do not need glasses. If glasses or contacts correct your vision and you do not enjoy using these, laser vision correction may be an option. If a condition such as cataracts is present, surgery may improve your eyesight. If poor eyesight is due to a disease of the retina (macular degeneration), improving it may be challenging.
