Take regular breaks from your computer screen and focus on a distant object, looking through your office window if you can, to counter the effects of pseudo-myopia caused by being too close to a computer screen for too long. This will help maintain the ability of your eyes to focus on objects that are further away. Eat foods that are rich in vitamin A such as carrots. There is also a Chinese traditional medicine eaten in soup called gei chi, which is believed to help preserve your eyesight. Experts say try it - it works. Corrective contact lenses are a proven way of improving your sight. These are worn at night and change the shape of the cornea to restore failing eyesight. Seek advice from your optometrist to see if they are suitable in your case. Speak to your optometrist about the possibility of a dual prescription - one pair of glasses or contact lenses for close-up work and another pair for use outside the office. Consider laser surgery. Provided your optometrist says it is appropriate for you, and you choose a surgeon who is experienced and up to date with technological developments, it can be a safe and effective cure for myopia. It is a good idea to find out everything you can about the treatment first so that your expectations are realistic.
