Eye excercised don't improve vision

A recent news article examined the validity of doing eye exercises to improve your vision. The claims range from improving your sight, eliminating glasses through eye exercises etc. One company involved in this, the "See Clearly Method" has been taken off the market for false advertising. A recent study indicates that there is little scientific evidence to support these claims.

That being said, vision therapy, a doctor prescribed system of vision exercises can help. They will not reduce myopia or prevent presbyopia but it can help with problems is focusing, eye teaming and eye tracking. You can learn more about vision therapy here.
