Farsightedness treatment and correction with natural supplements and herbal products, alternative therapy

Farsightedness is an eye disorder where distant objects are usually seen clearly, but close ones do not come into proper focus and are blurred. This occurs when the eyeball is too short or the cornea is too flat, and light rays entering the eye focus behind the retina rather than directly on it. Myopia is nearsightedness while hyperopia is farsightedness.

Farsightedness treatment
Herbs and natural supplements can help.
In cases where the farsightedness is mild, certain natural supplements can offer significant help. A cure is unreasonable to expect if the condition is a severe farsightedness.

Improve vision naturally
I am glad to report that the proper use of many nutrients can help restore, at least partially, the magic of seeing that some of you may have long forgotten existed. After you try Eyesight Rx or some of the other vision supplements listed below, you may even take a vision test on a Snellen chart to see if your vision is better. Some people use Eyesight Rx for blurry vision or night vision. You may also consider taking in through diet or supplementation more omega-3 oils and lutein.

Eyesight Rx for low vision
Helps improve close vision and reading

Unlike some vision products that provide nutrients and herbs for long term healthy vision support, and prevention of visual impairment, but don't seem to have much of an quick effect on visual acuity, Eyesight Rx was formulated to provide a quick and noticeable vision improvement within hours or days of use.

Reports from users indicate enhanced clarity of vision, colors being brighter, better focus, and overall improvement in close and distance vision.

Research
Ophthalmology. 2013. Prevalence of myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism in non-Hispanic white and Asian children: multi-ethnic pediatric eye disease study. Farsightedness was the most common refractive error in both Asian and NHW children. However, compared with NHW children, myopia was relatively more prevalent, and hyperopia less prevalent, among Asian children. The prevalence of astigmatism was greatest in infants, and WTR astigmatism predominated at all ages. Myopia showed relatively stable prevalence across age groups, whereas hyperopia prevalence decreased after infancy and then increased again in older age groups; however, longitudinal studies are needed to evaluate refractive changes over time in individual children.

A survey of clinical prescribing philosophies for farsightedness.
Optom Vision Sci. 2004.
Prescribing philosophies for hyperopic refractive error in symptom-free children vary widely because relatively little information is available regarding the natural history of hyperopic refractive error in children and because accommodation and binocular function closely related to hyperopic refractive error vary widely among children. We surveyed pediatric optometrists and ophthalmologists to evaluate typical prescribing philosophies for farsightedness. Practitioners were selected from the American Academy of Optometry Binocular Vision, Perception, and Pediatric Optometry Section; the College of Vision Development; the pediatric and binocular vision faculty members of the colleges of optometry; and the American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus. Surveys were mailed to 314 participants: 212 optometrists and 102 ophthalmologists. A total of 161 (75%) of the optometrists and 59 (57%) of the ophthalmologists responded. About one-third of optometrists surveyed prescribe optical correction for symptom-free 6-month-old infants with +3 D to +4 D farsightedness, but fewer than 5% of ophthalmologists prescribe at this level. Most eye care practitioners prescribe optical correction for symptom-free 2-year-old children with +5 D of farsightedness, and this criterion for farsightedness decreases with age. Most ophthalmologists (71%) prescribe the full amount of astigmatism and less than the full amount of cycloplegic spherical component, and most optometrists (71%) prescribe less than the full amount of both components. When prescribing less than the full amount of astigmatism, eye care practitioners do not tend to prescribe a specific proportion of the cycloplegic refractive error. Pediatric eye care providers show a lack of consensus on prescribing philosophies for children with farsightedness.
