There is no medication or food for improving eyesight or to get rid of glasses. If not interested in glasses then you can try a. Contact lens b. Lasik laser as your age is now 34 years so your number will not increase now whether you wear glasses or not as number becomes stable at age of 18-20 yrs. Having said that I advise you to eat balanced diet including green vegetables and seasonal fruits for keeping eyes and body healthy. As you are not comfortable with contact lens then go for lasik. Lasik is a very easy and painless procedure. If you want to get rid of glasses then go for lasik.

Sir, my eyes have power of -5.5 and I don't wish to wear spectacles. please tell the options available to me. Also kindly tell me about the LASIK laser operation for eyes and how safe is it. Also is contact lens a good option for my eyes? What are its drawbacks? Thanking you. Aman Deep.
