What eye exercises are effective to prevent dry eye?
Hello, I am a 34 years old male. Can anyone suggest some exercises that are effective to prevent dry eyes? I also felt some discomfort in my eyes. As I work from home and spend at least 10 hours in front of the screen. I started feeling discomfort in my eyes. My wife has dry eyes and the doctor said it was because of spending too much time on screen. I am scared and taking every precaution. I need some suggestions. Can anyone suggest some exercises that are effective to prevent dry eyes?
@chris-musk Hello, digital eye strain is common among people working at computers all day. This can cause dry eyes, eye strain, blurred vision, and headaches. A few simple eye exercises may help you improve digital eye strain symptoms.
- Focus change
This exercise works by challenging your focus. It should be done from a seated position.
Hold your pointer finger a few inches away from your eye.
Focus on your finger.
Slowly move your finger away from your face, holding your focus.
Look away for a moment, into the distance.
Focus on your outstretched finger and slowly bring it back toward your eye.
Look away and focus on something in the distance.
Repeat three times.
- Near and Far focus
This is another focus exercise. As with the previous one, it should be done from a seated position.
Hold your thumb about 10 inches from your face and focus on it for 15 seconds.
Find an object roughly 10 to 20 feet away, and focus on it for 15 seconds.
Return your focus to your thumb.
Repeat five times.
It’s important to have your eyes checked regularly by an eye doctor. They can often detect and treat problems before noticeable symptoms begin.
