“Nature Trick” SHIELDS Your Vision (Easy!)
How to prevent nearsightedness
Despite our advances in modern medicine, too many diseases and conditions are on the rise.
One of them is nearsightedness.
Based on the current rate, it’s estimated that 50 percent of the world’s population will be shortsighted in the next 30 years.
In fact, a recent study showed that in children 6-8 years old, the prevalence of myopia tripled in 2020 compared to the previous five years.
What’s happening to the world’s vision?
And how can you keep yourself and your loved ones from being part of these growing statistics?
Well, it’s easy – all thanks to this “nature trick.”
Let’s take a look.
It’s a simple answer:
People aren’t getting enough sunlight.
You see, when you get sunlight directly on your retina, it creates more dopamine. This helps regulate the growth of your eyes so that they don’t become elongated (which is the case with myopia).
Being outdoors also gives your eyes more opportunity to look at things farther away.
In fact, spending more time outdoors has been shown to reduce the amount and frequency of myopia by at least 10 percent.
A recent study in mice showed that when they were exposed to short-wavelength (violet) light — which is light that is present in the evening — their myopia progressed more slowly.
This not only shows the importance of sunlight — but of being exposed to sun at various times throughout the day to help follow your circadian rhythm.
You have a protein in your retinal cells called neuropsin that mediates the relationship between UV light and dopamine secretion.
The study showed that both violet light and neuropsin secretion help maintain the thickness of your eye’s wall. This helps prevent your eye from becoming elongated.
Yes, this was just a mouse study, but plenty of human studies have shown the protective effect of sunlight on your eyes.
Nearsightedness doesn’t just mean you’ll need to wear glasses or contacts for the rest of your life. It increases your risk of cataracts, glaucoma, and retinal detachment.
Our modern, indoor lifestyle has been chipping away at our eyesight for years. And this past year, with COVID-19, people (and kids in particular) have been indoors more than ever.
And the record-setting numbers of people developing myopia show its effect.
Your health will always pay the price when you deviate from nature.
This includes the health of your eyes.
