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 22 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 after age of 18 yrs.

You are doing excessive masturbation. Your health and weight is not increasing and eyes look dull. You are feeling sleepy all the time. Yes, this will harm your game. You are 26 kg underweight. Your weight should be 74 kg, according to your height. You need to take some treatment to increase your weight. I advise you to tell me your eating habits and any addiction to alcohol or cigarette, for better guidance and natural, safe and permanent weight gain treatment.
