Deliberately exercising your eyes is one of those simple things that very few people do, but that can help the great vision to be maintained.
Here are 10 such exercises that will take you no more than 10 minutes. Give them a try-how useful they are we can’t stress!
- Blink 2 minutes. This exercise helps to control the movement of blood between your body.
- Rotate your head whilst looking ahead in a circular motion. First from right to left, then upwards to downwards. That improves the circulation of blood in your brain.
- Look to your right, then look slowly to your left. Then do the same in the other direction.
4 Close your eyes and unwind. It is thought that darkness helps to improve the photoreceptor cells in your eyes, which in turn will help you preserve clear vision.
5 Move your attention to various directions. Look up and down, right to left; turn your head in a circular motion; draw a figure eight.
6 Close your eyes tightly for 3-5 seconds then open them. Make it seven times. It helps calm the muscles in your eyes and improves the supply of blood to your brain.
7 Push your fingers lightly over your temples. Keep that pressure on for about two seconds. Repeat 4-5 times. That improves intraocular fluid flow.
8 Keep your eyes open, use your gaze to draw simple geometrical figures. Then push on toward more complicated forms.
9 Close your eyes, and gradually push up and down your legs. Do this 5-10 times.
10 Strengthen the near and far-focused pupils.
-Sit in a chair or stand against a blank wall. Place your thumb in front of your face about 10 inches, and concentrate on it. You may also concentrate on an object for 10-15 seconds which is five to 10 feet away.
-Focus instead on a point 10-20 feet in front of you, without moving your eyes. Focus 10–15 seconds on the target.
-Refocus on your thumb, after 10-15 seconds. Practice that 5 times.
