Eye Exercises To Reduce Strain, Improve Vision

Can eye exercises really reduce strain and maybe even improve vision so you no longer need glasses?

Here are some of the most common eye exercises according to our research:

The 20/20 rule: After every 20 minutes on the computer, take your eyes away from the screen and focus on something 20 feet away for at least 20 seconds.

Focus rock: Focus on a small object, like a pencil, that you hold close to your eyes. Focus on it, then focus to an object 10 feet away. Then focus back to the pencil. Repeat this for five minutes a day, it can help build your eye muscles and in time you will be able to focus faster.

Palming: One of the more common eye exercises, shut out the light in your eyes by palming it with your hands and focus on the blackness for at least a few minutes.

Eye stretch: Look at your eyebrow, and make your eye move around to complete a big circle.

Thumb rotation: Cover one eye, hold out the thumb of your outstretched hand and focus on it. Only move your eye, not your head, and focus on the thumb as you move it in a quarter circle rotation (like the piece of a pie).

Pencil pushups: Hold a pencil in front of your face, focus on the pencil as you bring it close, and take it far. Repeat this several times.

Many optometrists agree that while eye exercises probably won't improve your vision to the point where you no longer need glasses, doing regular eye exercises can definitely help alleviate stress from the eye muscles and reduce strain from long hours in front of the computer or TV.
