5 Eye Exercises To Improve Your Vision

Every year, World Sight Day raises global awareness about blindness and visual impairment. This 8th of October on World Sight Day, Transitions wants to help people see life in the best light by helping consumers live richer, more vibrant lives by enhancing their vision and the way they perceive.

Just like every other muscle in our body, our eyes need regular exercise in order to keep them healthy. The thing is, we take it for granted that our eyes will eventually give up on us and we will eventually need glasses or contact lenses. This doesn’t have to be the case if you regularly exercise your eyes.

Here are five simple eye exercises you can do to keep your eyes at its optimal function.

1. Gazing Into the Darkness
Place your elbows on the table. Then place the palms of your hands over your eyes with the fingers of one hand crossing over the fingers on the other hand. Close your eyes and gaze into the darkness. Relax and hold this position for 1-3 minutes.

2. Side to Side Eye Movement
Stand or sit up right. Look straight ahead. Without moving your head, look to the left. Focus on what you see. Then look to the right. Focus on what you see. Move your eyes side to side 5 times. Repeat this cycle 3 times.

3. Up and Down Eye Movement
Sit up straight and look straight ahead. Then look up and focus on what you see. Look down. Don't be afraid to wrinkle your forehead or frown with your eyebrows. It's good for the eyes. Look up and down 5 times. Repeat this cycle 3 times.

4. Moving Your Eyes Diagonally
Look straight ahead. Look down and to the left. Then move your eyes diagonally and look up and to the right. Focus on what you see. Repeat this exercise 5 times, then look straight ahead and do the same exercise looking down and to the right and then looking up and to the left. Repeat this cycle 3 times.

5. Rolling Your Eyes in a Circle
Sit up straight and relax. Look to the left and slowly roll your eyes in a circle clockwise. To do this look up, then slowly move your eyes clockwise and look down and then move your eyes and look to the right. Do it clockwise 5 times and then counterclockwise 5 times. Repeat this cycle 3 times.
