The eyesight is probably the most used and most important sense. It enables observing the world around us in color and HD.
What is more, it’s a natural compass that we use to explore the surroundings. However, using our vision all the time, except when we sleep, has made us take our eyes for granted.
As we age our vision worsens and that’s a fact we must accept. However, the way we take care of our eyes determines the pace of our eyesight’s deterioration. Luckily, there are things we can do to slow this process down and to improve our eyesight naturally,
Here are five simple exercises which will be beneficial for your vision.
1. Roll Your Eyes
Rolling your eyes at someone is rude, but it is also a great exercise for the eyes. Roll them up as much as you can, rotate them clockwise ten times, and then counterclockwise for ten more times.
Do this three times, of course not in front of someone.
2. Blink Your Eyes
Although we all blink naturally, try focusing on fully opening and closing your eyelids for 20 times. Blinking causes production of tears which clean our eyeballs. This in turn, relaxes the eye muscles.
3. Sideway Views
Look left as much as you can with both eyes for a period of three seconds. Repeat this with the other side. Do this exercise ten times. Once you are done, relax your eyes as the exercise affects the eye’s muscles.
4. See Near, See Far
Sit at a place where you can focus on something faraway. Focus your gaze on your nose for ten seconds, and then look at the chosen object faraway, for about five seconds. Do this five times, and then relax your eyes.
5. Massage Your Temples
Press your thumbs on your temples, and massage them with rotating movements ten times clockwise, and other ten counterclockwise. Do this three times, but make sure you don’t press too hard because your face muscles should relax.
Repeat the same exercise for the area on both sides of the bridge of your nose, and in the middle of your eyebrows.
Do these five exercises on a daily basis, and they will work your eye muscles, improve your eyesight, and relax your facial muscles.
