Nowadays, the number of people who have eye-related issues is globally too high. According to the World Health Organization, in the developing countries there are more than 600 million people who have impaired vision. Furthermore, the National Eye Institute has reported that more than half of the Americans have developed a vision issue, in most cases nearsightedness (called myopia) or astigmatism. Collected and analyzed data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey points that out of 12,000 individuals aged 20 or older, 36% had astigmatism, 33% were shortsighted, and 3.6% were farsighted.

Today, there are a few ways you could possibly improve your eyesight. That includes either laser surgery (in case you want to resort to modern medicine), eye exercises, healing meditation, or nutrition, the last 3 of which are obviously not conventional.

If you decide to put your faith in the power of food to cure nearsightedness, cure farsightedness (a.k.a hyperopia), or correct astigmatism, we might be able to tip you off on a recipe that is worth giving a shot.

The recipe includes instructions on how to improve your eyesight with yogurt, parsley, and nettle. Many people claim they have dropped up to 2 diopters in either myopia or hyperopia, and while that’s pretty individually and relatively, trying this method won’t cost you much effort and money, nor does it hide any potential safety risk.

Recipe Variation 1: Improve Eyesight With Parsley and Yogurt

When you want to learn how to improve your eyesight with food you really should consider this option. Here’s the groceries and preparation method:

• 1 yogurt.
• 1 bunch of fresh parsley, finely chopped
• Add the chopped parsley to the yogurt and mix good.
• This blend needs to be consumed 3 times daily, 30 minutes before a meal, for a minimum of 1 month.

You can try a slightly different approach by mixing the ingredients right prior to consumption. Pour off 1/3 of the yogurt from its container into a cup, mug or glass then add 1/3 of the chopped parsley to it.
You need to eat this mixture at least for 2 weeks straight (sometimes even longer) before starting to experience any eyesight increase. The longer you consume this, the better you should feel. There’s really nothing to lose here, because there are only natural foods involved, whose separate health benefits you get to profit from too. Yogurt’s probiotics will support your gut health. Parsley is particularly rich in iron, therefore it is good for your skin, blood, nervous system, and brain, plus it could rectify a bad breath problem. In case you're experiencing dairy side effects or have dairy intolerance, plan B is to try taking the parsley with lemon juice. You could still achieve some vision improvement.

Recipe Variation 2: Improve Eyesight With Nettle and Yogurt

If you prefer, you could try the recipe with fresh nettle instead of parsley. The nettle variation is very suitable in early spring when nettle is still more subtle, tender, and doesn’t sting that much. Similar to variation 1, you have to mix 1 full container of yogurt with the tips of a whole bunch of fresh nettle.

Nettle too is exceptionally rich in iron, and will also have a positive influence on your vision, immune system, skin, and blood. It doesn’t matter whether you choose to make this with parsley or nettle, the important thing is you could pretty much be on your way to natural vision improvement.

How to know whether you have bettered your eyesight after a month?

It’s simple. Just listen to your body and try to assess whether you can see better than before. To find out with certain, you can visit a doctor and undergo a vision test.
