How to Improve Your Eyesight? Scientists Recommend These Techniques

A basic principle of medicine is that if you don’t use a muscle it becomes weaker. Just like any other muscle, you need to train the muscles of your eyes and keep them in good working order. We at Core Spirit have put together a selection of 10 proven ways to do this.

1. Avoid overstraining your eyes during the day. Close your eyes for a few minutes, and enjoy the peace once every 2-3 hours.

2. Use these well-known exercises you can use to give your eyes a workout. Do them each day in the order indicated:

Eye Exercises

When you’re focusing your eyes on a nearby a computer screen for long periods of time, you’ll eventually strain your eyes. This could lead to dry, irritated eyes, headaches, vision blur and difficulty focusing on your tasks. There are some simple exercises you can do to alleviate eye strain symptoms, whether you use corrective glasses or contact lenses or have perfect vision.

First off, regularly blinking for longer periods will help relax the eye. Depending on how sensitive you are to eye strain, you may need to rest your eyes completely a few minutes once every 30 minutes. Covering your eyes with your hands or a soft cloth to prevent any light from entering is a good tip. This can be coupled with the technique called “Palming”, where you quickly rub your hands together to make them warm before cupping them over your eye sockets, without making contact with your eyelids. This relaxes your eyes.

Another method is to take short pauses more often, focusing your eyes on a more distant object for 20 seconds every 15 to 20 minutes.

It’s also good to exercise your eye with different eye movements. For instance, you can slowly scan the edges of an object in front of you, or move an object, such as a pencil, from left to right in front of your face at arm’s length. Keep your head still and follow the shape or motion for about 2 minutes.

You might also want to do some pure focusing exercises. One way of doing this is to hold your finger or small object 15-20 centimeters in front of you, focus on it for a few seconds, then switch to an object about 3 meters away the next few seconds before looking at your finger again. This should be repeated around 15 times.

Finally, simply moving the eyes around in their sockets have proven to help reduce unnecessary strain. You can do this easily by closing your eyes and rotating them in wide circles without moving any other muscles in your face. After doing this a few times, try making smaller circles at the very center of your eyes.

If you still have symptoms of eye strain even when performing these exercises regularly, you should have an optician examine your eyes. Just as focusing on the same thing for long periods is straining, having glasses or contacts with the wrong power can be very tiring for your eyes. Also, if it’s dry eyes causing the problems, there might be a softer contact lens or eye drops to remedy your issues.

3. If you wear glasses, reduce the time that you have them on if you can. Take them off more often.

4. Give your eyes a massage with the help of gentle circular motions. Move through points 1 to 6 as shown in the image below.

Acupuncture Points

Use your middle and index fingers to press on your eyes. You should feel slight pressure, but definitely not pain, when you perform the actions.

5. When you are out for a walk in the open air, try to look into the distance more often rather than focusing on your own legs or immediately in front of you.

6. Drink carrot juice as often as possible (preferably every day).

If you want to achieve the maximum benefit from this practice, add one or two drops of olive oil to it. It won’t spoil the taste, but it will help you absorb the healthy elements in the carrot juice more effectively.

7. If your eyes are irritated in the evening, you can use aloe vera juice instead of regular eyedrops. However, consult your doctor first before using this natural remedy.

8. When your eyes feel tired, wash them with warm water.

9. Try not to stare at the screen of a computer, TV, or smartphone for at least 2 hours before going to bed.

10. Try out the Indian Trataka exercise for the eyes. It will help your eyes and your mind to stay focused.

candle gazing

Sit facing a small stationary object placed in an open space (a candle, for example). Focus your eyes and all of your attention on it. Try not to blink. You should aim to have a firm, detailed image of the object in your mind and memory.

Then close your eyes, and focus your attention on the space between your eyebrows, trying to keep the image of the object in your head for as long as you can. Do this for around 10 minutes.

The aim of the exercise is to achieve a clear image of something before your eyes become tired.
