Take care of your eyes which is the most importan

Need some exercise for eye health.

The eyes are one of the most important organs in our body through which we can see this beautiful and colorful world. But we are not so much aware of eye health. You do nothing to keep your eyes healthy unless you have an eye problem.

Today our lives are occupied with devices like computers, laptops, mobile phones. From waking up in the morning to sleeping at night, we look at the screen of these devices. The light coming out of this screen is very bad for the eyes. Overuse of these devices can lead to problems such as digital eye strain in many people.

What is Digital Eye Strain?

The problem of digital eye strain is due to excessive use of devices like mobile phones, computers. Exiting the screen of these devices is harmful to the eyes. Digital eye strain is also known as "Computer Vision Syndrome". This problem is more common in people who spend many hours looking at a digital screen and have to work all day on the computer. Let us now see what the symptoms of digital eye strain are.

Symptoms of Digital Eye Strain:

  • Headache
  • Excitement in the eyes
  • Dry eyes
  • Blurred vision in the eyes.
  • Neck and shoulder pain.
  • Increasing the sensitivity of the eye to light.
  • Eye irritation or itchy eyes.

With a few simple eye exercises, we can avoid problems like digital eye strain.

How will these eye exercises keep your eyes healthy?

The exercises we will see in this post are so simple and straightforward that you can do them anytime and anywhere. There is no need to take any equipment or go to the gym for these exercises. We can keep our eyes healthy by spending only 20 to 30 minutes in 24 hours of the day.

These exercises will not be useful for eye problems caused by aging or some serious eye diseases. But these exercises are definitely beneficial in some common eye problems like eye irritation, aches, and headaches. Just like we exercise every day for a healthy body, if we do it for the eyes, after a few days you will see good results in your eyesight.

Exercises for healthy eyes:

  • Eye Blinking: Eye Blinking is the blink of an eye. This is a simple but very effective exercise. The surface of the eye is clean when we blink. Blinking of the eyelids retains moisture in the eyes. When you are looking at a computer, mobile phone or TV screen, your eyesight is very low. As a result, the eyes become dry and the eyes begin to feel tense. In this case, take a short break and blink your eyes so that the eyes get rest.

The following steps should be taken while doing this exercise.

⃟ Sit comfortably and look straight ahead.

⃟ Close your eyes slowly. Keep your eyes closed for 1 to 2 seconds.

⃟ Slowly open your eyes.

Do steps 2 and 3, 20 times.

Blink your eyes time to time

  • Palming: Palming is another simple exercise for the eyes. This exercise helps to reduce eye strain and relaxes your eyes. Eye irritation starts after working on computer for a long time or using mobile for a long time. At such times, rubbing your palms against each other and placing them on the eyes gives rest to the eyes.

Take the following steps to exercise palming.

⃟ Sit comfortably and look straight ahead.

⃟ Rub your palms on each other so that they are warm.

⃟ Close your eyes. Then place the palm over your eyes. Do not press or rub the eyes with your hands. Just put your hands over your eyes and feel their warmth. Leave on hands and eyes for 2 to 3 seconds.
