If you suffer from poor eyesight, I urge you to try these free eye exercises to improve your vision – without glasses or laser eye surgery. By exercising your eyes sufficiently, you can prevent any further deterioration in your eyesight and actually improve your visual acuity. This means restoring your natural 20/20 vision so you don’t become reliant on glasses or contacts for the rest of your life.
If you think eye exercises are controversial, consider why that might be. If all 70 million Americans who have myopia stopped going to their optometrist and did eye exercises at home, 95% of eye doctors would be redundant. The truth is, they have a business to run – and it’s more profitable just to peddle certain options like prescription lenses, designer frames and laser eye surgery.
The majority of people with myopia (nearsightedness) and hyperopia (farsightedness) suffer from refractive errors caused by too much television, reading or computer use. In the case of aging vision it comes down to the eye muscles losing their flexibility. People simply don’t spend enough time flexing both their near and distant focusing muscles, nor giving their eyes a chance to work hard naturally without the stifling impact of prescription lenses.
Fortunately, there is a way to improve your vision with simple eye exercises practiced daily, for as long as you need to achieve clear vision naturally…
Free Eye Exercises to Improve Your Vision
The following free eye exercises are based on a wealth of knowledge I gathered from Rebuild Your Vision. This is one of the most popular vision training courses available today, known for its simplicity and dramatic results. I highly recommend it if you are ready to start vision training at home to achieve perfect vision without glasses. First though, have a go at these eye exercises to see what it’s all about.
Eye Exercise #1 – Distant Night (for Relaxation)
This is an easy yet highly effective eye relaxation exercise to do when you feel the effects of near-point stress. You may feel tension in your forehead, dryness of the eyes, blurry vision, tired eyes and eye strain. These are all signs that you need to step away from your computer and give your eyes a break!
To improve your vision with Distant Night, take a few deep breaths and rest your elbows either on your knees or on the desk in front of you. Cup your hands over your eyes so that your fingers are on your forehead and no light can enter your eyes. Make sure you can still blink under your palms without restriction.
Now, with your eyes closed, stare into the darkness and visualize a night sky. Imagine you can see hundreds of tiny stars in the far distance. Give yourself time to adjust your focus. Apply a little pressure with your palms around the eye socket, where the muscles are tense. Now take some more slow, deep breaths and release all the tension in your forehead and around your eyes.
I perform the Distant Night technique for anywhere between 30 seconds and 2 minutes when my eyes are feeling fatigued. It is highly effective.
Eye Exercise #2 – Ferris Wheel (for Flexibility)
This free eye exercise to improve your vision helps both coordination and flexibility. It feels a bit weird at first, but you’ll soon get the hang of it and it will feel completely natural. Like Distant Night, you can do this eye exercise at any time anywhere, with your eyes open or closed.
Sit up straight and look ahead, with your shoulders relaxed and your hands in your lap. Look up as high as possible without moving your head. Then, smoothly and slowly, roll them clockwise and trace a big circle around the room. Try to see as much as possible – if you feel a little pain or resistance, that means you’re stretching your muscles properly, which is good. A full revolution should take at least four seconds. Do this 10 times then repeat counter-clockwise. To make it smoother, imagine you’re looking at a huge ferris wheel up close – no jerky movements, just slow and steady all the way round.
