Eye Exercises to Improve Eyesight

Your eyes have muscles and they can get sore when held in one position for too long, just like any other muscle of the body. Give your eye muscles a break and you will be very grateful over the years.

By doing even a few of these exercises you may well increase your productivity, eliminate headaches and errors, and even reduce your risk of glaucoma. And you don’t even have to take time off for these exercises so a busy schedule should be no excuse.

Best Eye Exercises To Improve Eyesight :

  1. Palming

    Rub the palms of your hands vigorously, until they are warm and place them gently over your eyelids. Let the warmth of the palms transfer onto the eyes. You can feel the eye muscles relax as your eyes find relief in the darkness. Persist until the heat from the hands has been completely absorbed by the eyes. Repeat two to three times.

  2. Blinking

    Sit comfortably with your eyes open. Blink 10-15 times very quickly. Close your eyes and relax for 20 seconds. Repeat this 4-5 times.

  3. Zooming

    Another effective exercise for the eyes is zooming. As you may guessed from the name, you make an object zoom for your eyes so as to shift the focus of your vision. Sit on a chair with your arm outstretched and your thumb up. Now, bend your arm gradually and draw it closer to your eyes, thus zooming the thumb in focus.

  4. Shifting

    Shifting is about moving or rotating your eyeballs from one direction to another. Look to your rightward corner and then shift your gaze gradually to the opposite direction. The tiny eye muscles get more active and healthy with the spurt of blood pumped in from the shifting.

  5. Figure of eight

    Sit with legs straight in front of your body with the left hand on the left knee. Hold the right fist above the right knee, with a straight elbow and the thumb pointing upwards. Keep your head still and focus your eyes on the thumb. Draw a figure eight with your thumb, keeping the elbow straight all the time. Repeat this exercise five times each in clockwise and anti-clockwise direction. Next repeat the process with the left thumb.
