vision-training-contacts.jpg Baseball players are going to great lengths to gain competitive edge by using tinted contacts and $85,000 ocular devices that squeeze the most out of visual information. It’s essentially a “high-speed pitching machine that fires marked tennis balls at speeds up to 155 mph.” A friend of mine recently observed, “I really noticed that my vision went down hill after quitting tennis in college…but, it improved when I took tennis up again a few years ago.” So I felt like putting to rest some myths about vision .

Myth1: Your vision only gets worse with time.
This is not true. Just like fitness, if you are willing to maintain it you will stay in good heath. Other than when a supermodel walks by, when was the last time you did eye exercises – let alone on a program? The eyes have muscles and they need to be worked out: up close, far away, in movement, in the dark and in the light.
Myth 2: There is nothing you can do once your eyes start going bad except wear glasses.
This thought is more pervasive than you might think. People still believe once you have knee pain you are destined to have knee surgery. This is absolutely true if you are not willing to change you lifestyle. So, as long as you are willing to work, there are things you can do about your vision.
Myth 3: It is impossible to change your vision (Even as of late, I have been told by a health care provider).
As we see with baseball players whose careers depend on their vision, you can work to improve and if not anything else get more out of your vision.

Over and over the body shows that maintenance goes a long way and obstacles such as weakness and pain are not a good reason to quit trying. I am issuing a challenge to you (and myself): to create an exercise program for your eyes (personally, I have incorporated it into my cardio/core training program). Work on it at least 3 to 5 days a week for 8 weeks, and see what changes. Throughout life, we have opportunities to improve ourselves. It is not just a privilege of 18 to 25 year olds. Please drop a line and tell me how this challenge works for you. As for me, I am going to work on something I was told would not change and will see what happens in a year. There is no doubt it will be hard work and will have to go against every current belief…even my own.
