Can natural eye exercises work for correcting short sightedness?

Can natural eye exercises work for correcting short sightedness?

No: Near-sightedness cannot be corrected by any type of eye exercise. However, there are suggestions that near-sightedness is made worse with prolonged accommodation (using your eyes muscles to focus at close distances) in children.

How is it possible that an eyeball be both too long and too short at the same time?

How is it possible that an eyeball be both too long and too short at the same time?

Either or, not both: As the word implies, if it is too long, it cannot not be too short.

Maybe in one demension (say length) it is too long and the width is too short, but otherwise it is not possible to be too long and too short in the same demension. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more
