Can myopia (short sightedness ) treated naturally without surgery or glasses? I heard that sunlight could help

No: Sunlight will do nothing for myopia. This condition is due to an abnormal shape of the eye that results in refractive error (think of a lens directing sunlight to a specific point). It is a very common occurrence and by itself, results in no significant health issues. But to correct this so you can see in focus, you need contacts, glasses, or refractive surgery (e.g. Lasik). ...Read more

Sun light is very good for one's mood. Are people wearing glasses (with UV filters) (not sunglasses) more susceptible to (mental) illness?

Sun light is very good for one's mood. Are people wearing glasses (with UV filters) (not sunglasses) more susceptible to (mental) illness?

UV not key to mood: Those who experience low mood when days are shorter in fall & winter may benefit from a dose of bright, early morning light. However, UV light is not essential to this treatment. The bright lights sold to treat mood in this way give off no UV light. You can purchase these lights easily, e.g. on Amazon, for less than $100. Used for 30 minutes in the morning, they may raise winter mood. ...Read more
