One of the best ways to improve your eyesight and improve your eye health is to simply relax – relax your body, relax your mind, and relax your eyes and eye muscles. Best times to try to relax your eyes are first thing in the morning when you wake up, and at night just before you fall sleep in bed. Keep your eyes closed, and try covering your eyes up with a blanket to increase the darkness – the darker it is, the more relaxed you will be. Think pleasant thoughts, and picture pleasant scenery or things that you like. This helps you relax your mind and relax your eyes.
Concentrate on relaxing your eyes. You’ll immediately feel more relaxed overall – relax your eyes, eye muscles, and the muscles around your eyes. You will feel less tense, and feel more calm when you relax your eyes. Also try taking deep breathes. There are also various exercises that you can do to help you improve your eyesight. When performing eye exercises you should take off your glasses.
Start by limiting your use of your eyeglasses or contact lenses. Only use them when they’re absolutely necessary, such as for reading or for doing essential work, and driving. Glasses and contact lenses are crutches, and if you keep on wearing them, you will not be able to improve your eyesight. You can try using pinhole glasses, which are made from an opaque sheet of plastic lined with pinhole sized openings. These tiny holes on the glasses allow a narrow beam of light to enter the eye, which reduces the circle of confusion on the retina, resulting in clearer images. Using Pinhole glasses can help improve your vision while you are using them, reducing your dependence on corrective lenses.
Avoid squinting your eyes to try to focus better. Squinting your eyes places additional strain on your eyes, and this is something you want to avoid. Remember to blink often and keep your eyes moisturized. A dry and irritated eye does nothing to help your eyesight, and only further increases the strain and stress on your eyes.
The next time you find yourself staring and fixating on your computer screen for too long, remember to take a little time off and relax your eyes. Take away your focus from the monitor and look outside your window; try doing a short period of palming; or simply close your eyes and picture pleasant things.
