Like the other muscles in your body, your eye muscles need regular exercise in order to maintain optimal fitness and function. However, most people don't give their eyes the exercise they need. In today's technologically driven society, people often strain their eyes by staring at digital screens for long periods. As a result, their eyesight deteriorates with age, leaving them with poor vision.
The good news is, you can support healthy vision naturally by wearing high-quality pinhole glasses for a few minutes every day. The Groovy Bee Store has partnered with Groovy Bee® to bring you Groovy Bee® Pinhole Glasses. Our non-prescription pinhole glasses can help exercise targeted muscles in your eyes to support healthy vision and optimal eye fitness.
Groovy Bee® Pinhole Glasses feature thick pinhole panels that stay firmly in place, as well as sturdy metal hinges and durable frames. Our specialty, non-prescription glasses are registered as a medical device with the FDA and come at a fraction of the cost of prescription eyewear. Groovy Bee® Pinhole Glasses are available in the classic Aviator style and in a sleek Sports style.
What are pinhole glasses and how do they work?**
Pinhole glasses, or stenopeic glasses, are eyeglasses with lenses studded with tiny, evenly spaced holes. Pinhole glasses help shield the eye from indirect rays of light, which typically distort vision. Pinhole glasses work differently from standard prescription eyewear or contact lenses, which correct vision by collecting rays of light as they enter the eye and forcing them to converge in the retina, the part of the eye that enables vision.
Pinhole glasses allow you to see more clearly by restricting the amount of light entering your eyes. Put simply, pinhole glasses give your eyes a more “organized” pattern on which to focus. This, in turn, causes the focusing muscles in your eyes to engage in adaptive exercise, which helps support their range of motion.
As these focusing muscles get exercised, they become more “fit,” similar to how strength training exercises help strengthen the muscles in your body. The range of motion of these focusing muscles is important for controlling how the lenses of your eyes change shape. By changing shape, these lenses allow your eyes to focus on objects at varying distances.
Why should I use pinhole glasses?**
According to the Vision Council of America, roughly 75% of adults use some form of vision correction. Over 64% use prescription eyeglasses, while approximately 11% wear contact lenses either exclusively or as an alternative to eyeglasses. However, a growing number of people today are also choosing to undergo expensive laser eye surgery, which often comes with serious long-term risks to your eye health.
Unlike eye surgery, wearing pinhole glasses for a few minutes every day has no side effects. When worn properly, pinhole glasses allow your eyes to see objects up close with more clarity. You can see this effect if you try reading text printed on an object while wearing pinhole glasses. A study published in the journal Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science also found that pinhole glasses can bring images into focus and minimize eye strain.
Pinhole glasses cost only a fraction of the price of prescription eyeglasses, contact lenses or eye surgery. This makes wearing pinhole glasses a cost-effective way to support healthy vision. To use, wear pinhole glasses for a few minutes every day and gradually work your way up to one hour per day. Rest your eyes after each use. Note that pinhole glasses should not be used while driving, operating heavy machinery or performing any action that requires your full attention.
Why doesn't my eye doctor recommend pinhole glasses?**
Eye doctors often tell their patients that they need to wear eyeglasses or contact lenses because their eyeballs have changed shape. But don’t be fooled – the idea that your eyeballs change shape or become “longer,” as eye doctors often claim, is one of the biggest deceptions in ophthalmology. With a few rare exceptions, such as sustaining a severe head injury, there is simply no feasible way for your eyeballs to change shape long after they have stopped growing.
Your eyeballs don’t get longer as you age, contrary to what some eye doctors claim. In the absence of a serious health condition, neither your facial bones – which keep your eyeballs in place – nor your eyeballs will change in size or length. Instead, what could happen is that the focusing muscles in your eyes may become less “fit” due to a lack of exercise. As such, it’s important to give your eye muscles the exercise they need. Groovy Bee® Pinhole Glasses allow you to exercise the focusing muscles in your eyes to support healthy vision.
From the Health Ranger
I was totally astonished. The instant I put these glasses on, I could suddenly read small text up close. It's as if I acquired magnified vision, but without any real magnification at all. I'm now making these pinhole glasses part of my personal exercise routine… exercise for my EYES!
