Healthy Eyes

As we grow older, and more especially if we have committed a life time of work to on screen reading, our eyes begin to deteriorate. While this is natural, the degree of deterioration can be combated with a few simple exercises. Donít worry you donít need to leave your desk to do them. You should be taking regular breaks from your screen anyway, so you can break to do something positive for your health.

Clockwork

In this exercise you rotate your eyes around an imaginary clock, first clockwise then ant-clockwise. You look up and count to five, then right and count to five, down and count to five and finally left and count to five. Reverse the exercise. This exercise strengthens the muscles in the eyes, keeping them healthy. Try to do this a couple of times a day.

Far away

Sit and look at an object very close to you, focus on it so that you can see everything about it in focus. Once you have that focus, move your gaze to the furthest away point in the room, or even out of the window. Again focus on it so that you can see it clearly. This exercise strengthens the muscles of the eyes and trains the eye to focus on objects far and near, this is a great exercise for programmers. Repeat this exercise around four times a day.

Candle

This is an evening exercise. Light a candle in a darkened room and focus on the light from the candle, just allow your eyes to remain focused on the candle then, when you are ready, allow yourself to stare, unblinking until tears form in your eyes. This exercise can help combat dry eye syndrome which affects many ageing eyes. This exercise should be repeated at least once a week.

I hope these exercises will help some of you. At my last visit to the optician I was told my eyesight was the same as most 35 year olds. In other words, itís not perfect, but I donít need glasses yet. She agreed that exercising in this way has possibly helped my eyes remain healthy for more than 15 years longer. I hope they help you too.

Please be aware that this is personal experience and not medical advice.

Re: Healthy Eyes

Methinks that would be some spam! Mmm, with chips. Ah, but I digress! Paul, would you like to report it as such? I'm afraid I can't, I've got myself tied up in an "Eagle Posture"

Don't you dare even try it! Under no circumstances should essential oils be dropped into the eyes. Most essential oils will burn like crazy when they come into contact with the eye. Some vapours will even irritate the eye if you get too close.

I've had lots of people comment on the improvement in their vision after regular Reiki sessions. Who knows, there may be something in it

I have considered grinding my own lenses from pieces of sea glass I found on the beach, but that's a... well... long term goal.

Re: Healthy Eyes

Diet can play important role for healthy eyes.

1)Eat vegetables like carrot, papaya.

2)Avoid watching computer monitors for more than 45 mins. In between you can take small break and wash eyes with cold water.

3) people with diseases like hypertension and diabetes are more prone to eye diseases.

Aye, the OP was obviously blinkered at the time or he had the wool pulled over his eyes
