Is Xbox and computer usage making my eyesight worse?

Is it possible to improve my eyesight? I spend alot of my time on the computer and xbox, my vision has deteriorated alot. I can't see words 5 feet in front of me anymore ... help!

Do things like eye-exercises or diet help? Or am I out of luck and have to just deal with living with my glasses then eventually contact lenses for the rest of my life?

You are just one of a huge new generation of XBox and PC users who are likely to start experiencing this kind of problem. I recommend going through this site to get practical ideas that can help, but as a quick overview of your question I would recommend the following...

  1. Go get an eye test - they will test your eyes and check for disease.
  2. Change your lifestyle - Get out more - play sport have fun outside - avoid close vision activities
  3. Learn vision RELAXATION techniques and practice them - palmingi, sunning, etc. You can find free vision improvement ideas throught our site.
  4. Take Breaks when doing close vision work - observe distant objects.
  5. AVOID STARING - staring will destroy your vision.
  6. Wear your glasses as little as possible - remember they are normally designed to work at 20ft - at any other distance they will strain your eyes. If you are nearsighted, the closer to the object you get, the greater the strain on your eyes.
  7. Reduce your Xbox and PC usage. If necessary - use a bigger screen and use at as far a distance as is practicable - remember point 4.
  8. Diet may help - but your lifestyle and use of glasses are likely to be the biggest issues

The simple answer to your question is YES - there are things you can do to improve your eyesight - thousands have done so before you using natural vision improvement techniques we outline on this site. I'm sure you can do it too!
Good Luck
