can your eyesight improve? Answered

Can your eyesight actually improve? I know your sight can decrease, so you have to wear eyeglasses, but can your eyes 'heal'?

If you are very young, yes - I forget when optical plasticity ends, but I think its before you are 10. After that, depending on your exact condition, there are some exercises which can help something, but after about 40 everyone loses "accommodation", the ability to change focus widely.

I have heard that if you are near sighted, your eye sight can get better. The way I heard it, as you age, you gradually become farsighted. If you start out near sighted, your eyesight gets better.
