Eye exercise for myopia
Myopia or nearsightedness is an eye problem, wherein the individual will have problem in focusing distant objects, i.e. they will seem blurry or hazy to them. However the vision for nearby objects will be clear. Myopia can normally occur with advancing age or defect in corneal anatomy. The exercises for myopia bring about considerable improvement in vision only if it has resulted from chronic eye fatigue or other reversible factors.
What are the eye exercises for myopia?
Focusing with eyes
There are several techniques for doing this exercise. We list them below:
Instead of focusing on the object placed on the wall, you can look out of the window to see objects at about 20 feet away.
Your peripheral vision may be weak when you suffer from myopia. So try this exercise in your office or at home. Sit on a chair in the middle of your room or office cabin or in your patio, balcony or garden. Now view each and every object carefully within your periphery. Move your eyes in a circular fashion by focusing on individual objects for 3-4 seconds.
Eye muscle exercises
Pretty simple exercise! You need to rotate your eye balls in clockwise and anticlockwise circle 10 times. Another technique is – bring your eyeballs at the corner of your eyes and look only in one side (for example left), gaze for 5 seconds and then take your stare to the other direction (right).
Sit on a chair or floor. Rub your palm against each other and cover your eyes by cupping with the palm. The warmth in your palm would soothe your eyes.
Objects look blurry when your eyes are strained. So practise blinking every half an hour to notice improvement in your eyesight.
