When we think about all of our daily activities – from driving to watching television, or spending quality time with our loved ones – it is impossible to list a single activity in our lives that does not involve the use of our eyes. Therefore, it makes sense to pay critical attention to doing the things that we need to do to improve our precious eyesight. While glasses, contacts and laser surgery are the most popular ways to correct vision problems, rather than getting to the root causes of vision disorders, they simply mask the symptoms.
However, did you know that there is an alternative way of correcting vision problems that helps you to improve your eyesight naturally? These are called eye exercises that improve the visual performance of the eyes by strengthening the eye muscles.
Eye exercises can rebuild the visual system and they consist of a series of techniques that involve simple eye movements such as up and down movements as well as side to side movements. An example of an eye exercise technique that is quite effective is one that improves visual acuity or sharpness of eyesight. This is called the Edging Eye Exercise.
This particular eye exercise technique can be performed by choosing an object such as a window or a picture. The main objective of this technique is to move your eyes without moving your head along the edges of an object. For instance, imagine that your eyes are a pencil and with that pencil much in the same way that you would trace the outline of a shape that you would draw on a piece of paper, trace the outline of that object exactly trying not to move your head but your eyes only.
So in the case of the picture look at the object and then direct your focus without moving your head around the outer edges of the picture frame. Move your eyes up, across, then down again along the edges of the picture frame. Practice moving your eyes slowly around the edges of different objects until you have mastered this technique to such a degree that you can start moving them at a faster pace.
Here are a few benefits of the edging eye exercise technique:
1 It improves the natural function of the Macula of the eyes which is the part of the eye that is responsible for visual acuity (sharp eyesight) and also enables us to see fine details and read fine print clearly. This is helpful with certain activities such as reading and writing.
2 Another benefit of this particular technique is the fact that it is quite simple and easy to perform. This is a convenient eye exercise that can be practiced anytime, anywhere and takes a short period of time to perform. For instance, you can practice this technique at school or at home or even in your office at break time or whenever you have any spare time for 3-5 minutes.
