Medical Myth Busted - Bad Eyesight is Not Genetic

Once thought to be the case by most eye doctors, it is now understood that the ability to see is not fixed at birth. In fact, only 3% us are born with vision problems. The other 97% who cannot see clearly develop the need for glasses at some point later in their life. Hearing that, many people respond immediately with a natural
curiosity about how to improve eyesight rather than just treat poor eyesight with glasses or contact lenses. Just as we train ourselves to talk or to walk, we also train our eyesight, and there are proven methods to improve eyesight naturally.

It is now safe to say that we were born with clear vision and we learned how to not see clearly. We didn't learn this deliberately or consciously, and we weren't taught it by anyone, but we did develop an improper way of using our eyes and brain that led to unclear vision.

Babies Can Focus Clearly

Recent studies indicate that babies as young as 1 day old can focus clearly. When shown a picture of their mother's face, these little infants could bring the picture into focus by adjusting the rate of their sucking on an artificial nipple. If they sucked at the right rate, the picture would stay clear. If they sucked too fast or too slow, the picture went out of focus.

Until this ingenious experiment was designed, scientists thought that babies couldn't focus clearly until 3 or 4 months of age. It seems that every day we are learning more and more about how really amazing the body is!

So, if you need glasses or contacts, chances are that you had clear vision for some period of you life and then visual tension and stress set in to limit it.

Over Half The People In the U.S. See Poorly

As human beings we learn about the world around us through our five physical senses. Of these the most dominant and highly developed is vision. In fact, over 90% of the information that we gather comes to us through our eyes. Our vision is our primary means of relationship to the world around us. Yet, over half the people in this country wear glasses or contacts. Needing corrective lenses to see clearly is now considered normal. We have become a nation of people largely dependent on an artificial means to perform a most basic and essential human function. And it wasn't this way a hundred years ago. Back then, only 10% of the population had vision problems. This huge increase took place over only three or four generations. If poor vision was inherited, whom could we have possibly inherited it from?

The point is that it is not genetically based, and that we do have the opportunity to rebuild our vision. You can now move past the "bad genetic eyesight" myth, and take action to restore your natural vision.
