Article #4: Eye Exercises
To strengthen the eye muscles, do these exercises once or more every day:
- Without moving your head at all, use your eyes to follow an imaginary diagonal line, from the upper left of your vision field and down to the lower right. Feel your eye muscles stretch as you look diagonally upward and then downward. Do this five times, and then repeat from the upper right to the lower left.
- Now move the eyes to the top and then to the bottom as far as you can without moving the head. Make the eyeball muscles stretch! Do this up and down, down and up movement five times each way.
- Now blink the eyes rapidly until tears form. Close the eyes in a relaxed manner, then squeeze them, then relax. Place the palms lightly over the eyes.
- At first repeal these exercises only once. Later, do them twice, and finally three times. Do not strain, and at the end of each exercise part, relax and rest them. Combine these exercises with alternate focusing on far and near Objects.
