7 exercises for better vision
Health & Beauty / /
Daily exercising for all these muscles can end the unpleasant redness, dryness and burning of the eyes, as well as blurred vision and headaches. The only rule is to practice just the exercises that do not cause an unpleasant feeling in your eyes.
1. Watch close and watch far
This is a ciliary muscle exercise. Cover the left eye with your right hand, extend your left arm in front of your right eye and focus at one point on your left palm. Slowly bring your palm towards the eye and do not turn the view from the point you are looking at. Then slowly return your hand to the starting position and keep an eye on this movement. Do the same exercise with the other hand.
2. Draw circles in the dark
Close your eyes and move them up and down. Repeat this 10 times. After that, direct the view to the left and than to the right. Keep your eyes closed and make circular movements - 10 times clockwise and 10 times in the opposite direction. These movements strengthen the eye muscles, while darkness relaxes them.
3. Find the third thumb!
Extend both arms in front of your body and squeeze hands into fists with the thumbs pointing up - look at them, and then into the distance. Repeat this 20 times. As you repeat the exercise several times, it is possible that you will also see the third thumb! This technique relaxes your eyes.
4. Look into the distance
To quickly relax your eyes, occasionally spread them as much as you can and allow your gaze wander into the distance. When you focus again, all your muscles will be relaxed.
5. Expose your eyes to the sun
Direct your face towards the sun with your eyes closed. If it is not sunny, you can use a lamp, as long as you reach heat and light through closed lids. Hold both palms in front of the eye at a distance of up to 20 cm - the thumbs should be up, the pinky fingers down, and the palms face towards the face. Sweep both palms up and down, in the opposite direction, so that you can see the light through the closed eyes. This exercise relaxes the eyes and reduces the photosensitivity during sunny days.
6. Change the focus
Extend the squeezed fist with a thumb pointing up in front of you about 30 inches from the eyes. Intermittently shift the focus from the tip of the nose to the thumb and to one point in the distance. Repeat the exercise 10 times, then close your eyes for a moment. Focusing the view at objects that are at different distances helps you improve the vision.
7. Quickly blinking
Close and open your eyes as fast as you can, but do not squeeze the lids tight. Do it for about a minute before closing your eyes for a moment. Quick blinking relaxes the ocular muscles after a long time spent in front of a computer.
