Many of us struggle with eyesight as we age. What if I told you, your eyesight could actually improve with age?

Can you reverse your nearsightedness and throw away your glasses? According to today's guest, Jake Steiner, you can. Jake says:

Your eyes are not broken. Nearsightedness is not an illness, but a $100 million business. And you can understand, control and reverse your myopia. Jake is the founder of endmyopia.org, the largest online vision improvement community and he has helped tens of thousands of people improve their eyesight and even reverse myopia.

Jake has spent the last 20 years in vision biology science, focused on the prevention of nearsightedness and methods of reversing it and he has written over 1,200 articles on vision biology and myopia control. Today Jake will share with us why we have more control over our eyesight than we are told, the unrecognized driver of myopia and how certain tools and daily habits can improve and even reverse the issue.
