SeinfeldRules;4386427Wear glasses.[/quote] already do
SeinfeldRules;4386448I don't know why, nothing wrong with glasses.
its not the glasses that worry me so much. itsjust that it makes me think on how bad my eyes really are. [quote=Bs|Archaon;4386562]1. You can't really improve your eyes - if your eyesight is going down the pan, then it's going down the pan whether you like it or not - but there are steps you can take to reduce the strain on them. 2. Carrots don't do shit. They may well provide a whole host of vitamins and general nutritional goodness but the idea that they magically make your eyesight better is a myth. And no, they don't make you see better in the dark. Vitamin A can help prevent your eyes from detiriorating - making you less likely to get problems like cataracts - but carrots aren't even a particularly high source of it. You're better off eating fish, meat or eggs; and the average person eats more than enough of those kinds of things anyway. 3. If you need glasses and/or contacts then start wearing them. Straining your eyes because you refuse to wear them will just exacerbate the problem. If you're that ashamed then get some glasses to weare at home when you're on the PC and/or playing games and then don't wear them when you're out; but bear in mind that you probably will have to at some point so get used to it. It's not a big deal once you get used to them, and a lot of people actually look better with glasses on. Remember that you get to choose which ones you get and opticians normally have a huge range of frames available, so it's pretty damn easy to get a pair that looks good on you. As a rule, if you've got a round face then go for the slim rectangular types; conversely if you've got a more square face then go for more rounded glasses. 4. You don't need a bigger or smaller monitor. I don't suffer from eye strain with my 24" monitor, my 7" laptop or anything else I've ever used. What matters is the distance. You need to be at a distance where it is comfortable to use. Too near or too far and you'll strain your eyes. Remember that you can change the resolution to make things bigger if you need to. It may look fugly but it's better than eye strain.

thats some of the best advice i got =p im also suprised to see how much this thread has progressed, didnt know that so many people would post here. but i guess i dont need to worry about my eyes and glasses so much. my friend is almost blind in his right eye, and his glasses on the right side look 1/4 of an inch thick.

Glasses have a point where they become too thick to actually work.

I actually like my glasses ($500 frames, so I bloody well should!), but the last time I visited my optometrist, he said that I was reaching the point where glasses would stop being effective. From then on, it's contacts only, though if I continue this way, I'll keep plain-glass frames.

Here's a detailed but brief bit of advice I found. [COLOR=blue]http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m1272/is_2689_131/ai_92691057[/COLOR] I've also read that antioxidants can help. I have found eating salmon, esp salmon oil brings my eyes right back if I'm feeling low on energy and red eyed. It's probably because salmon is one of the main foods containing omega fatty acids, which is a strong antioxidant. I've also found if I binge on sweets too much it can make my vision worse. Other than that buy Intel so you don't wind up contracting AMD and you might not need silicone implants when you get older. LOL OK,...technically they're transplants.

Actually carrots are good for eyesight. It's the beta carotene in them, which is another form of antioxidant.

Hmm... What about Laser Eye Treatment? - If it hasn't been mentioned already. Is about £300 per eye, but supposedly worth it.
