This episode I describe how we see, meaning how our eyes focus, convert light information into electricity the rest of the brain can understand and how our brain creates the incredible thing we experience as “sight”. I also describe how we can train and support our visual system to improve at any age. I describe more than a dozen protocols to support depth perception, offset near-sightedness, improve mood, sleep, and our ability to focus (both visual focus and our mental focus generally). I also explain how to use eyesight to improve our levels of alertness and why visual hallucinations, lazy eyes and colorblindness occur. I also describe various compounds that may assist in supporting visual health and possibly improve our vision. Many simple, zero-cost protocols and a lot of scientific mechanisms are covered in this episode in clear language anyone can understand– it is for anyone that values their brain and their eyesight, whether young, adult-age or advanced age.

30 gedachten over “The Science of Vision, Eye Health & Seeing Better | Huberman Lab Podcast #24

  1. But u can't really improve ur eyesight..

  2. Please look up some interesting connections between light, eyesight, and the nasturtium plant. Nasturtium is edible in all of its parts, leaves, stem and the flowers.

  3. Enjoyed this informative session. One thing not mentioned is floaters; those annoying fuzz-like blobs that dance across the eyes and distract like crazy. I had cataract surgery in my left eye and the floaters multiplied. Super annoying. Can anything be done to reduce them?

  4. Do the pinhole glasses work for strengthening the eyes?

  5. Hi! 1. This man is amazing. 2. Can I get a light alarm clock with gradual increase in blue light for the morning? Thanks.

  6. Are mobiles important in training newborns vision then?

  7. YouTube crazy off-topic all the time man

  8. You have too many details about all the little things over here and over there and this and that this animal that animal that fish and that bird is nothing

  9. I don't think we're in black is very good black is bad black doesn't look good on anybody why do you wear a black shirt do you think you're sexy looking guy or something wearing a black shirt is no good wear white

  10. I didn't want your video because you were wearing a black shirt I think that's stupid wearing a black shirt like that stupid you're trying to pick up a girl at the bar or something then wear black shirt

  11. I guess you're just one of those guys that just like to talk about everything that you know where everything that you think about her this and that you know stick to the subject stick to the point man

  12. @andrewhuberman helping us live life

  13. When one tries to see or read in a dim environment (eg. a room lit by a single candle) is it just harder or does it hurt our vision?

  14. Is there any chance to talk about various relationships and their benefits for our well being, mental health, happiness, mood and even longevity? I know it is obvious that we all need to interact with others, but hearing from a scientific perspective it would maybe help people not to isolate so much and to nurture their relationships (friend, partner, family, animals)

  15. My myopia is improving with the feldenkrais method.

  16. Thank you sir for your kind and generous contribution. We could never repay your work for us. we hope and pray you will be in good health always and always excel in your fields of work.

  17. i had myopia as a child, couldn't see the chalkboard , ect. Was I born with it or was it due to lack of sun as a small child?

  18. Andrew im half blind since i was born, i dont even know how to see with 2 eyes.Cant relate your example haha

  19. Thank you i struggle with lazy eye and ive learned a lot on how to improve my vision, love this podcast thank you so much

  20. Appreciate this – will implement the eye training you suggested for amblyopia. Would be interested to hear your thought on specialised VR training for the above, I tried it but it didn't help me personally.Would any such training be more beneficial without corrective lenses? I've also seen resveratrol may have some benefits to those with AMD?

  21. Can games, like first person shooters, where you visualize your enemies in a variety of distances, substitute the smooth persuit and near-far exercises?

  22. Dr. Huberman, I have a question! Great content btw, I'm such fan of your work, I think what you do is of enormous value to humanity, an it certainly is to me personally. So my question is: I have hyperopia since birth, and amblyopia on one eye. I started wearing glasses at about age of 14, mostly for reading, and at about 19-20 for everything else too. It's +4.75 on one eye, and about +7 on the another. I'm adapted to wearing glasses, and experience not much discomfort without them as long as I don't need to read or manipulate small objects. I'm 30 years old now. Would it be beneficial or harming to have sessions of not wearing glasses outside sometimes, and more importantly, would there be any effect at all. I would very much appreciate to know your take on this, thank you.

  23. I have a friend who recently lost her eyesight due to clot in brain. They say she won't get her sight back. Any recommendations, resources, to assist?

  24. I’ve worn glasses since I was 14. I’m 35 now, myopia at something like 4.0Vision (which I think isn’t good). Should I be trying to operate without glasses in order to strengthen my eyes? Like when walking through the grocery store or around the house? It would be hard to see anything clearly, but would it be good for my eyes? I don’t know if this was answered in a future episode, but will listen for the answer.

  25. Playing ping pong is very stimulating for eyes as well.

  26. Interesting that I learned to relax the face, jaw, and eyes in meditation practice. Now there's also a practice of gazing through closed eyelids, would that also work? It's not completely dark (maybe if you have thick eyelids) and is often referred to as similar to gazing into the night sky. I keep being amazed by how much yogies found out about the mind and body.

  27. Great episode as always! I am a little behind but still enjoy every moment of the information provided. The sunset in between buildings in NYC is called Manhattanhenge by the way;)

  28. How does this man have a video about everything?
