Eye exercises to improve your vision
by Steven Aitchison on March 14, 2009
Our eyes need regular exercise in order to keep them healthy.
If you start wearing glasses or contact lenses your eyesight will only get worse over time rather than get better as your eyes will get used to the new lense and need even stronger lenses to function properly.
Opticians are people of some authority so why would someone listen to me rather than someone who has had years of training and years of experience and have big fancy machines to test your eyes. Simple answer is that 90% of opticians would not be required if everybody done some sort eye exercise on a daily basis.
Blinking is simple way to keep your eyes fresh and being able to focus longer.
Palming gives you the opportunity to rest your mind and your eyes for a few minutes at a time. Place your two hands over your eyes with the cup of your palm covering your eyes, your fingers on your forehead and the heel of your hand will rest on your cheekbone. Make sure you can blink freely and you are not putting too much pressure on your eyes.
Near and far focussing- one of my exercises,focus on something else about 10 – 20 feet in front of you. On each deep breath switch between focussing on your thumb and the 10-20 feet object in front of you.
