Exercise 1 “Palming”.

Before you start doing special exercises, you need to prepare your eyes, because in any activity you need a warm-up. In this case, the warm-up will be the process of relaxing the eyeball. The exercise is called palming.

Translated from English, “palm” means palm. Therefore, the exercises are performed accordingly using these parts of the hands.

Cover your eyes with your palms so that their center is at eye level. Position your fingers as you feel comfortable. The principle is to prevent any light from entering the eyes. There is no need to put pressure on your eyes, just cover them. Close your eyes and rest your hands on some surface. Remember something pleasant for you, so you will completely relax and get rid of tension.

Don’t try to force your eyes to relax, it won’t work. Involuntarily, the eye muscles will relax themselves as soon as you are distracted from this goal and are somewhere far away in your thoughts. A slight warmth should emanate from the palms, warming the eyes. Sit in this position for a few minutes. Then, very slowly, gradually opening your palms and then your eyes, return to normal lighting. This exercise can be used to both cure farsightedness and prevent it.

Exercise 2 “Write with your nose.”

 “We write with our nose.” Sit back and imagine that your nose is a pencil or pen. If it is very difficult to look at the tip of your nose, then just imagine that your nose is not so short, but approximately like a pointer, and a pencil is attached to its end. The eyes should not be strained. Move your head and neck to write a word in the air. You can draw. It is important that your eyes do not take your eyes off the imaginary line being created. Do this exercise for 10-15 minutes.

Exercise 3 “Through your fingers.”

Place your fingers at eye level. Spread them slightly and try to examine all the objects around you through your fingers. Gradually turn your head to the sides without moving your fingers. You shouldn’t pay attention to your fingers, just look at what you can see through them. If you perform the exercise correctly, it may seem after thirty turns that your arms are also in motion. This will mean that the exercise is being performed correctly.

Exercise 4 “Let’s synchronize watches.”

Use two dials: a wrist clock and a wall clock. Cover one eye with your palm, look at the wall clock, focus on the number one. Look at it for 1 minute, then look at your wristwatch and look at the number one. So, alternately move your gaze to all the numbers, taking a deep breath and a deep exhale during the exercises. Then repeat the same with the other eye. For the best effect, you can use an alarm clock as an intermediate object, placing it at an average distance between you and the wall clock. It is advisable that the distance to the wall clock be at least 6 meters.

For good vision, eat carrots, beef liver or cod liver, proteins, and fresh herbs more often. And remember, even if you don’t have eye problems yet, it’s not a bad idea to carry out preventive exercises to prevent them.

At the Prima Medica medical center, you can consult with experienced ophthalmologists who will recommend an individual set of exercises taking into account the characteristics of your vision.
