    Eye Exercises, are the "wrong words" to use.
    Intelligent, wise prevention, (at 20/40) would be the correct scientific approach.

  2. Aidym Lovisotto

    What would you recommend for a four year old child with cyclic esotropia? VT is making us doing many extraoccular muscle strengthening exercises and conversion exercises. But no one can give me an answer to why it’s cyclical! It’s a 48 hr pattern with 24 hr esotropic and 24 hr orhtoptic with perfect alignment and streovision.
    You were saying something about eye restoring it’s lens when it’s closed ? This could explain why overnight she heals, but then again after the following night The Eye goes in – what can go wrong over night to make the ye go in?

  3. TheRealHerbaSchmurba

    The rthumbnail doesnt show the muscle strands you talk about in the video. Or at least I dont see it.

  4. Wilfredo. A. Burgos

    Thank you for your interpret Doctor and that go na help the patient 😊😊😊

  5. Tee Dee

    'Blink for a minute' – Chris Witty take note.

  6. roshan bhandari

    Everyone, literally every single soul in comment section from that video was saying it helped them with their vision. So, I don't give a horse crap if this is not scientific. I believe it already.

  7. lenard pareja

    Doctors always say eye exercises won't make your vision better so how the heck are there 20 million comments out there of people who doin these got their vision several diopters better

  8. Cervantes Cisneros

    An eye doctor that wears glasses? Yeah no thanks! Its like listening to a fat person talk about diet tips! Or like listening to a poor person talk about financial success. lol. No thanks bro!

  9. Alyssa Desjardins

    Would any of the exercises help with a lazy eye?

  10. Aditi

    The exercises will help . The doctor just wont say it bcuz its his job to give u glasses . He wont earn money if people dont get glasses

  11. Scott Sarver

    More like Dr. Dumball. His quick dismissal of these exercises shows and tells me he is Pharmacudically trained. So much to comment on here, but do yourself a favor dismiss his limited knowledge.

  12. Horkor_ Gaeming

    so Dr.Zach says it wont change alot if you do these excersize, so do you have any recommended excersize to improve eye sight ? (sorry if i spell your name wrong)

  13. Sheykh Asif Zaman Siddiqui

    I totally agree with doc here. I have been wearing power glasses since I was 6 years old. Strengthening the muscles around your eye balls are only gonna make you feel refreshed. I have elongated eye balls so no amount of such exercises are gonna improve my vision. Same goes for degenerated corneas. What we need to understand is the diagnosis of poor vision. The remedy or cure will be based on that. So, if you are looking for warding off eye tiredness then these exercises are good accompanied by splashing cold water.

  14. Cha Li

    Thank you for the video and it has great content

    I do candle meditation for months now, everyday 20 min. So far everything is good and research says candle gazing improves vision and strength of the eye muscles. Is there any negative effects of practicing candle meditation ?

  15. Otie Brown

    Hi Dr. EYEBALL.
    I greatly appreciate your review of the POSSIBILITY, of personal prevention, by a wise engineering student, entering a college, with a self measured refraction of -0.75 D, and 20/50.
    Without any anger, I suggest that prevention (meaning recovery from 20/50, to better than 20/30) is both reasonable, and possible.
    There is a good scientific reason to understand why this is possible.
    You (as a Doctor) are forced to use a bad theory, and assumptions, that prevents even a discussion of this type of long term prevention.
    I look for the day, when we stop using the word "exercise ", and study all eyes as dynamic systems, an offer a person a choice (entering college) the ability to protect their distance vision, for life.
    I am now back to 20/20.

  16. Cuddly Cat

    You look British but the accent ain’t.

  17. ysmithriley

    These exercises may not improve my eyesight, but my eyes FEEL 1,000% better. According to your review, the first and the eighth exercises potentially help improve a person's vision.

  18. Frank Hainke

    Doc Eyeball seema not to know the theory behind it. And intead of watching the video he should test it for a month and check then if something happened.

  19. Doomsday

    It works really works! my eye Dr. Told me that my vision did improved and only did it for 4 months prior to my annual visit. I'm 56 years and it really works. Also Dr. Mandell recommends similar eye exercises . This guy's opinion is only an option with no facts. 🤔

  20. More Life Health Seniors
