Tips To Improve Eyesight

If you spend a lot of time working with a computer, reading or watching TV you are most likely short sighted. This means that you are unable to see objects in the distance very clearly.

This occurs because for the majority of the day your eyes are focused on objects that are close to you, so in effect your eyes become accustomed to seeing close objects. As a result the eyes becomes less able to see distant objects clearly.

Here’s 3 quick eye exercises you can use to improve your eyesight, and increase your ability to see objects in the distance.

Eye Exercise 1

Make an effort to stare at something in the distance every 30 – 60 minutes for at least 30 seconds. You can do this by simply looking at the other end of the room you are in, or looking out the window. This exercise will improve your focus of distant objects, by preventing the eye becoming accustomed to focusing only on objects that are close to you.

Eye Exercise 2

This is similar to the first exercise, but involves you putting your finger in front of your face about a hands distance away from your nose. Now look at your finger for a few seconds, then look at something in the distance. When you do this you should feel you eyes changing focus from the finger, to the distant object you are looking at. This is an excellent exercise for improving the focusing ability of your eyes.

Eye Exercise 3

For this exercise nod your head up and down, like you were nodding “yes” to someone. Look up at the ceiling and down at your toes.
This exercise will strengthen the muscles in your neck, thereby increasing blood circulation to the head and eyes. It could also help to reduce a sagging chin!
