Reduce Eye Number: How to Remove Eye Number Naturally

Some people have a very high eyeglass prescription number. There are a number of natural home remedies to reduce eye number and repair the damage caused to your eyes. Before knowing how to reduce eye number, it is important to find the reason behind refractory error in the eyes.

Causes of High Eye Prescription Number

Modern lifestyle involves spending time reading books and magazines, watching television, playing video games and spending hours staring at computers screens.  All these activities put tremendous strain on our eyes while trying to visualize near-distance objects, within the range of 10 to 20 feet. We seldom watch objects in the distance for a long time. Constantly watching objects of near vision ultimately changes the natural accommodation of the lens in our eye. This results into blurred vision while watching distant objects. For correcting this vision error, you need to wear numbered prescription glasses. Some people may have a vision defect since birth resulting in poor eyesight. Such cases may need vision correction.

  • To reduce eyeglass number drastically and in a short span of time, you might want to consider laser eye surgery. Laser eye surgery is a non invasive procedure. It works on the principle of reshaping the front portion of the eye called ‘Cornea’. In most cases, after a laser surgery, the patient is able to see the distant objects clearly without wearing glasses or contact lenses. Eye problems related to myopia (nearsightedness), Hyperopia (farsightedness) can be easily treated with laser eye surgery.
