Dear sir/ madam,
As far as removal of glasses is concerned no it does not get removed by precaution in diet or doing exercise , the role of balanced healthy diet is it helps in stabilizing the power but not reduce the power, exercise makes your eyes stress free , the only thing that is most important is regular wearing of glasses take care

General & Family Physician Dr. Sapan J. Pandya's  Response
Yes it is possible by physiotherapy of eye to reduce the refractory error. That means exercise of eyes in a proper manner.
Medicines do not help much because refractory error is a problem of weakness of eye muscles rather than improper nutrition. But B-Complex with Vitamin A and VItamin E would be useful.
Overuse of eyes in front of television / vidoe games / mobile games is a major culprit.
Our eyes were not meant to be used much for near work. Our ancestors were food gatherers and hunters. So eyes were meant to look far.
So no watching Television and exercising.
