Simple Eye Excercises that can Improve your Vision

 

Just like training any other body part can improve its performance, so too can training one’s eyes, improve their overall performance.

These eye exercises are specially designed to strengthen and improve your eye muscles, improve their focusing and movements, as well as stimulate the vision center of the brain.

Before trying these exercises check with your doctor to see if they will benefit you.

Directional Eye Exercises

1. Up and Down – Look up and focus on what you see then look down and focus on what you see. Do this 5 times and then pause for a minute and then repeat this 3 more times in total.

2. Left and right – Look to the left and focus on what you see then look to the right and focus on what you see. Do this 5 times and then pause for a minute and then repeat this 3 more times in total.

3. Diagonal vision exercise – Look straight ahead and focus. Look down and focus, to the left and focus. Then move your eyes diagonally and look up and to the right and focus. Do this 5 times and then pause for a minute and then repeat this 3 more times in total.

Up and Down Zig Zag – Look straight ahead and move your eyes up and down in a zig zag motion as illustrated above.

The Figure 8 for Relaxed Eye Movement and Clear Vision

This is an excellent exercise to improve controlling the movement of the eyes.

Imagine a giant figure 8 on the floor, about 3 meters in front of you.

Follow the figure 8 lining with your eyes, slowly.

Trace it one way for a few minutes slowly and then trace it the other way for a few minutes.
Use both figures, horizontal and vertical.

Rolling Your Eyes for Improved Vision

1. Roll your eyes in a circle – Look to the left and slowly roll your eyes in a circle clockwise. Do this 5 times and then pause for a minute and then repeat this 3 more times in total.

2. Roll your Eyes in expanding circles –Follow this image slowly with focus with your eyes. Do this 5 times and then pause for a minute and then repeat this 3 more times in total.

To finish your eye workout, close your eyes or lay/sit in a peaceful pitch black room. This works like a cool down.

Massage your Eyes for Improved Vision

 

1. Massage your pressure points (as above… number 4 and 5 reflect the side temple areas) – Get into the habit of pressure point massages about twice a day, once during the day and once at night.

Again, first check with your eye doctor to see if these exercises will benefit you.
