View Full Version : Anyone see vision improve?

I have heard that ones vision can improve from eating our natural raw diet. I am working towards a mostly raw diet and have been near sighted since a child. I would love to know that it could be an added bonus!!

I am near-sighted as well. I have not gotten to a point of no longer needing my glasses, but I DO notice that my prescription just kinda feels..."different".
I would be willing to bet that if I went to the eye doctor my prescription would be changed to one less strong than the one I have now!
Now my husband, on the other hand, was far-sighted and only wore his glasses fo reading and sometimes for night driving. Well, after a while, he noticed that his glasses began to bother him whenever he put them on and one day announced to me that he no longer needed them and hasn't worn them since!
I think in our case, being near-sighted and wearing our glasses the majority of the time, that in addition to the change in diet we should also incorporate eye exercises and maybe look into those books that deal with how to correct vision naturally and one thing I had began doing but haven't done in a while, was to when at home not wear my glasses so much. Yes, things would be blurry, but just to give the eyes a rest from being so dependant on the glasses might also help strengthen them IMHO. Losing these specks is a goal and a desire of mine!

I am very nearsighted, in the 1000's area. Which is leagally blind, I can no longer drive.
I also have major astigmatism, which means in each eye I see double, but they are different, so I see triple or more, and I have been wearing glasses since I was about 8.
last year before I was 100% raw, and still eating cooked vegetarian, foods, I was wearing a very intense perscription.
I went raw, and after only a few months, had to go back to my old glasses, but not just back one year, I had to go back to my glasses from 12 years ago, the ones from 1993.
And if I choose to read, I need to remove my glasses, so I can see up close.
So, hang in there. All things get much better on raw.

I am not 100% raw and am certainly a beginner but I am high raw. I first got glasses when I was 8 mainly for reading and have had them for this purpose ever since. When I went vegetarian / vegan I found I only needed them for computer work and long reads. Since starting my raw journey about 6 months and I have had MANY binges on cooked foods I have NOT worn my glasses at all. This is even with weeks of binging but still keeping raw foods in and then back to RAW and off - you get the picture. Basically though since just increasing my raw food intake I have got rid of the glasses - good luck!!

glad to see some of your changes for the better! It is good to hear that the raw foods may help!

I've noticed that contrast is much more sharp for me, brights seem much brighter! Colors are more defined too. I wear contacts so I haven't noticed a change in vision because I wear them all the time. But I love that everything seems more clear and like there is more light getting in, especially good with the aging process, might be slowing it down a little bit!

I just went for my yearly check-up and for the first time even my perscription didn't change, get stronger that is. I've been raw for 3 months.

Well, first, if you didn't know it, Alissa no longer needed glasses after she'd been raw a while. She mentions that in her book.
As for me, I was a vegetarian for over 20 years and my vision did not improve. Now, I've been all raw vegan for almost one year and just recently I'm often more comfortable without my glasses than with them. As I'm driving, I find myself pulling them off, then putting them on to check which way I can see the signs better -- then usually end up with them off. I feel a little strange without them since I stopped wearing contacts almost 20 years ago so now they're kind of a security blanket. But -- my vision is definitely changing; it feels different.
So, my unasked-for advice (!!) is go all raw. Even if your vision never improves (which I beg it will eventually), you'll gain amazing and miraculous benefits in all areas of your life!!

I also notice that raw improves my vision. Things are much clearer and sharper. My vision is not all that bad anyways,but I do wear glasses mostly because I need them for the prisms, I see double without them. Weird,, it isn't too bad, but enough that it causes me problems in the evening when it starts to get to be dusk time.

Last time I went to the eye doctor my vision was 20/200 & 20/400, and I was wearing bifocols. I only wear my glasses to drive and if I really want to see something far away that is small.
Well I recently noticed that I can now read the little print of the cities that are listed in the back of the atlas. Normally at the age of 52, people are pulling books away from them in order to read them, yet, at a normal distance I can now read this teeny, tiny print. COOL!!!!!
I am about 75% raw. I expect to continue to see improvement from eating higher raw.
Also, if interested, here is the Bates book, on-line, The Cure of Imperfect Sight by Treatment Without Glasses:
