Eyes exercise is a set of massage methods that aims at promoting students’ awareness of eye-protection, improving blood circulation and relaxing muscles in ocular region, relieving asthenopia and preventing myopia. Eye strain also known as asthenopia is an eye condition that manifests itself through nonspecific symptoms such as fatigue, pain in or around the eyes, blurred vision, headache, and occasional double vision. Symptoms often occur after reading, computer work, or other close activities that involve tedious visual tasks.
Here are a few simple exercises to help rejuvenate and reduce the strain on your eyes:
Repeated blinking: Since a lack of blinking is one of the contributing factors to computer-induced eyestrain, as it dries your eyes, it’s very important to blink. Blinking every 3or4 seconds helps in reducing eye strain. When we watch tv or work on the computer we tend to blink less, allow your eyes to rest by blinking every few seconds.
Eye Rolling: Take a minute and make sure you roll your eyes while you’re working. Try rolling your eyes, tracing as big a circle as possible. Repeat about 4 times, then close your eyes, focus on your breathing and relax.
Palming: Start this exercise in a comfortable position. Rub your hands together for about 10 to 15 minutes till they’re slightly warm, now place them upon your eyes. Don’t touch the eyeballs directly, instead just keep your hands lightly over your eyes.
Focus on a distant object: It’s important to take your eyes off the computer screen and look away at something else for several seconds or a minute. Choose an object that is about 6 to 10 meters away from you and focuses solely on it for a few seconds without moving your head much. This gives some respite to the ciliary muscles that tend to be under a lot of stress.
