5 Eye exercises to improve your eyesight | Fond Family

In todays fast moving life, technology has  occupied our time we always get focused and attached either on the laptop, TV or mobile. However machines are user friendly, but our eye is always in direct contact with the screen  and it strains our eye muscles invariably. Now a days we see many kids wearing specs at a very younger age this is mainly due to a loss of tone for the eye muscles.  As a result muscles become rigid as the age increases , so  the loss of elasticity reduces the ability of the lens of the eye to focus at different distances. It also causes the eyesight to become weaker. These exercises tone the eye muscles up and keep them elastic. When doing the eye exercise, one of the major things that is taken  into consideration is the posture of your body. Make sure  your body is relaxed, head is straight and spine erect. Only the eye in your body should move.

On point

  • Choose a point you can see from the right corner of your eyes when you raise them, and another that you can see from the left corner of your eyes when you lower them, half closing the lids.eye1
  • Repeat four times. Blink several times. Close the eyes and rest.
  • Now do the same exercise in reverse.
  • Make sure you maintain the correct posture.

 Right and left

  • Keep a pencil or your fingers at eye level at the right and left of your eye.
  • Move your eyes to your right and left without any strain to your eyes.
  • Repeat four times. Blink several times.eye2
  • Close your eye and rest.

Up and down

  • Raise your eyes and find a small point that you can see clearly without straining, without frowning, without becoming tense and, of course, without moving your head. While doing this exercise look at this point each time you raise your eyes.
  •  Next, lower your eyes to find a small point on the floor which you can see clearly when glancing down. Look at it each time you lower your eyes.
  •  Breathing should be normal. Move your eyes upwards as far as you can, and then downwards as far as you can.eye 3
  • Repeat four more times. Blink quickly a few times 1 to relax the eye muscles.


  • This exercise should not be done until three or four days after you have begun eye exercises given here. Slowly roll your eyes first clockwise, then counterclockwise as follows:
  • Lower your eyes and look at the floor, then slowly move the eyes to the left, higher and higher until you see the ceiling. Now continue circling to the right, lower and lower down, until you see the floor again.eye 444
  • Do this slowly, making a full-vision circle. Blink, close your eyes and rest. Then repeat the same action counterclockwise. Do this five times then blink the eyes for at least five seconds..


  • Use your hands so that your palms cup covers your eyes. This technique to improve and strengthen vision is called palming.
  • You don’t need to put any pressure on. Make it so that your eyes can blink if you want them to.eye5
  • Rub your hands together before you do this to help generate some energy and just let your hands warm your eyes. This really helps heal and nourish them, and takes out any tension in your eyes.

Some tips

  • Take regular breaks to relax eye muscle – occasionally look away from the monitor and      focus on a distant object for a few seconds to give your eyes a rest.
  • Close your eyes for a few minutes to ease the strain, this is a commonly overlooked home remedy for eye strain.
  • Practice eye exercises such as  blinking or rolling your eyes – blinking moistens the eyes and relieves tight eye muscles
  • Another home remedy for eye strain is to position your computer screen out of the direct glare of the sunlight and      use a glare filter on the screen
  • Computer monitors and television screens should be positioned at eye level so that      you can look down towards it
