Tired eyes: 4 simple exercises for visual acuity

Symptoms of fatigue of the visual organs are diverse: this may be dry eyes, feelings of «sand» in them, decreased visual acuity, dilation of blood vessels in the eyeball and their redness… Here is a far from complete list of symptoms of eye fatigue.

Meanwhile, the eyes need care — whether we are sitting at home with a child on maternity leave or working in the office. Here are four simple exercises that will help us preserve our eyesight and enjoy life in all its colors.

1. Near-far
This exercise helps to relieve tension, which causes myopia (myopia). We spend too long looking at close objects, such as a computer monitor or magazine pages. It is necessary to take regular breaks and focus on something far away to relax the eye muscles.

Hold your index finger about 15 cm from your face and look at it for 2 seconds, then switch to an object at least 6 m away from you and look at it for another 2 seconds. Change focus 25-30 times to train your eyes.

2. Light taps
Gently press the closed eyelids with three fingers of each hand and hold them for 5 seconds. Repeat 8 times. This will improve blood circulation and gently stimulate the eye muscles.

3. A look into the darkness
Allow your eyes to relax in the middle of the day. Cover them and cover them with your palms on top so that the light does not pass through. Breathe slowly and deeply, peering into the darkness for at least 5 minutes.

4. Flutter your eyelashes
Close your eyes tightly for 5 seconds, then open them wide for 5 seconds. Repeat 10 times. Then blink rapidly for 30 seconds to clear and moisturize your eyes. This strengthens the muscles that control the movements of the eyelids, and improves blood circulation.

Good old healthy lifestyle
We remember about proper nutrition. In order for the eyes to remain beautiful and sharp-sighted for a long time, it is necessary to adjust your diet. Do not abuse sweets and refined carbohydrates, they increase the risk of retinal wear, which progresses with age. Increase your intake of omega-3 fatty acids: they are found in oily fish and flax seeds. Provide yourself with vitamins C and E, beta-carotene and zinc.

Moving more. Go for half-hour brisk walks at least 3-4 times a week. Physical activity reduces intraocular pressure, which causes glaucoma.

We buy high-quality sunglasses. It is necessary to protect your eyes from the sun and wear glasses with strong UV protection.
