I am 14 years old. My eyesight is very weak, my right eye is weaker. I have been wearing glasses since 3 to 4 years. My doctor said they won't improve until I am completely grown. He suggested me to put my left eye closed for 3 to 4 hours a day and try to use my right eye more than that of left. Is he right? Will this really work?
Myopia is a common condition of the eye where the person can see things near him clearly while those at a distance seem blurry. Myopia is also known as nearsightedness or shortsightedness. It is most commonly seen in children and during adolescence. It may develop slowly or gradually and it mostly tends to run in families. Myopia mainly occurs when the light entering the eye does not directly focus on the retina, but rather in front of it. A person suffering from myopia tends to partially close his eyes to see clearly. People who are myopic often complain of headaches due to eye strain and blink excessively. Day-to-day activities are hindered and the person has difficulty driving at night (night myopia).
Homeopathy is a wonderful science of treatment with medicines made from natural substances. These medicines are safe from toxic side-effects and make a dynamic impact at the root level to heal the condition and restore good health. A major advantage of the Homeopathic mode of treatment in myopia is that it stops further progression and sometimes even corrects the sight . They are equally effective in persons of all age groups.

Along with myopia ,you are also suffering from amblyopia ,at the age of 14 yrs amblyopia or lazy eye is uncureable, you should consult some experienced ophthmologist to understand your problem , just wearing glass is no solution .Myopic power is inherited from either mother or father side & is basically hereditary in nature ,maximum increase in myopic power takes place between 13 to 21 yrs in male & between 13 yrs to 19 yrs in female because maximum body growth takes place between these periods. There is no direct medicine to check the increase in myopic power but with the help of balanced diet ,green vegetables & seasonal fruits one can slow the speed in the increase of myopic power,one can take the help of yoga pranayam, swimming, gym &these things definitely slow the speed of increase in myopic power.
