Natural Vision Correction Exercises

The following are some natural ways of correcting or improving vision, which you can practice at your home as well as at your workplace.

Vision Correction Exercise # 1
Long sessions of exposure to the computer or the television sets can lay a lot of stress on the eyes. Therefore to ease it a bit, stop looking at the screen for sometime and look somewhere else. Probably towards a tree full of greenery. This will relax your eyes and also release the stress on them. Or you can just wash your eyes with some cold water, without rubbing the eyes vigorously.

Vision Correction Exercise # 2
This is probably the easiest of all exercises. Blinking is an involuntary activity and we all tend to blink our eyes many times during the day. Blinking is important as it protects eyes from dust particles suspended in the air and also relaxes our eye muscles. However, while concentrating on something our eyes do not blink much, which therefore exerts a lot of pressure and stress on our eyes. To ease it out, we can voluntarily blink our eyes after every 3-4 seconds and continue the exercise for about 2-3 minutes.

Vision Correction Exercise # 3
Neck muscles and eyes are interconnected. This is because the arteries providing nourishment to the eyes are situated between the neck muscles. Insufficient blood supply to the eye is also a major reason behind vision problems. This exercise will improve the blood supply towards eyes through the neck region. Face the sun with your eyes closed. Now, rotate your head towards both the sides. This exercise helps in providing sunlight to the peripheral vision and improves the blood circulation towards the neck, which in turn has a positive effect on the eye sight. Do this daily for about 5 minutes.

Vision Correction Exercise # 4
Now, this one is for people who are suffering from myopia. Myopia is an eye problem characterized by short sightedness, but it can be gradually cured with the help of eye exercises. Place your left palm on your left eye and keep a book in front, at a distance of about 6 feet. Keep another object at about 7 feet from you. Concentrate on the book for about 2 seconds with your right eye and then shift your attention towards the other object for about a minute. Keep doing this until both the objects appear clear to you. Repeat this with the other eye and continue this exercise daily for a month.

Vision Correction Exercise # 5
Hypermetropia or farsightedness is another common eye problem that many of us encounter. Here's an exercise that will help reduce the problem. Hold your finger in front of your eyes at a distance of about 6 inches. Concentrate your vision on the finger tip for 5 seconds and then shift your attention towards an object, about 5-6 meters away from you. Look at that object for 5 seconds. Repeat this pattern for about 30-40 times everyday.
