A lot of eye focusing problems are caused by weak muscles in the eye. This is especially true of the long-sightedness associated with ageing.
Pinhole glasses are specifically designed to exercise the muscles in your eyes responsible for focusing. When you look through the pinholes it improves your ability to focus and thus helps reduce stress, headaches and tension. Most users report a noticeable improvement in just two to four weeks.

A customer called recently to report that he had achieved outstanding results from wearing his poinhole glasses. On his return visit to his optomistrist he was informed that the hole in his retina had healed and his eye sight improved! He had bought the pinholes in the hope they would help his eyesight. He had been wearing them for five months, 30 mins a day, 3 times a week while watching tv! He was delighted and wanted to share the good news.
How they work
When you look at an object, your brain adjusts the focus of your eyes until it senses an increase in contrast. When your brain cannot find a difference between a dark and light area it cannot focus your vision. Pinholes improve this contrast which helps your brain find the focus point more easily. This gives you a sharper, clearer picture.
As your brain makes your eyes use their focus muscles more with the pinholes, the muscles are exercised. So they become stronger and better at focusing when you are not wearing them. They are reported to be particularly effective for computer screen use.
Pinhole Glasses work for both long and short-sightedness. However, they tend to work better and faster for long-sightedness because short-sightedness can have different causes. Be sure that there is enough light.
- If you are long-sighted (difficulaty with near vision): wear your pinhole specs for close focus activities like reading and looking at your computer screen.
- If you are short-sighted:get the benefit from focusing at a distance, eg. watching TV or a nice view.
- If you are short-sighted and long-sighted (quite common in people middle aged or older): wear them for a variety of activities for maximum benefit.
- Give your self a minute or two to adjust to the pin holes. They limit your peripheral vision so do not wear when driving, operating , machinery and even be careful walking.
What do experts say about Pinhole Glasses?
“When you wear prescription glasses you’re falling into a trap. You’re no longer fully using the focusing muscles in your eyes or the photoreceptors in your retina. The important ciliary muscles start to weaken, so you need to go to your optician for stronger and stronger lenses.
The moment Pinhole Glasses are placed in front of the eyes, a narrower parallel beam of light comes through the holes. This focuses on your retina and sends messages to your brain for clear-sightedness.
Pinhole glasses focus light on the ‘fovea centralis’. This brings objects into focus whatever the shape of your eyeball, while the rest of the glasses’ black lens stimulates the photoreceptor ‘rods’ in the rest of the retina. Therefore the whole retina is being stimulated and exercised. This is relaxing and beneficial.”--Peter Grunwald
Grunwald recommends wearing Pinhole Glasses if you suffer from short sightedness (myopia), long-sightedness (hyperopia and presbyopia), and regular astigmatism.
What is the inspiration for selling pinhole glasses on OrlaPhelan.com?
Back in 2004/ 2005 I was going through a challenging time, I used to fuzz up my eyes as I walked through the local town Mount Maunganui, in New Zealand where I lived. I didn’t want to see anyone, as I didn’t feel capable of “keeping myself together.” I was going through an intense ego breakdown / spiritual wake up and this was just part of how it all unfolded.
Within 3 months my eyesight began to weaken. By fuzzing up my eyes feeling unable to face what was around me, my eyesigh had deteriorated, and no matter how hard I tried to focus, my distance vision stayed blurry. The fact that I have only vision in one eye and the vision was deteriorating shook me out of not wanting to see and back into wanting to see! I also had other health and spiritual issues going on and thankfully with God's grace moved through the dark night of the soul into lighter awareness and a massive journey of healing and awakening.
It was then I discovered pinhole glasses at a health store. I thought they were hilarious at first, and openly laughed at them! But then I wondered, what if they work!? They cost nearly $40 back then, but I got them anyway. Between using these on occasion (ranging from 10 – 20 minutes at a time) and taking various eye supplements including bilberry, blueberry and eyebright, my eyesight corrected itself. I still see perfectly today and it’s now my delight to share this great product with you.
I've discovered since then, that pinholes, in addition to helping improve vision, also greatly relax the eyes, the muscles around the eyes and improve eye fatigue including that from computer screens, as well as relax the nervous system. Simply put, they are a great tool for wellbeing at a great price.
They are so good you might like to get a pair for yourself and a pair for a friend!
Is there any reason I SHOULDN’T use pinhole glasses?
While pinhole glasses are claimed to be useful for people who are both near- and far-sighted, they are not recommended for people with over 6 diopters of myopia. Additionally, pinhole glasses should never be worn while driving or when operating machinery, due to the reduced brightness and peripheral vision.
