Aaron Barriga, the online marketing manager for Insight Vision Center, shared with Healthy Lombard that blurry vision is a common symptom and side effect of several eye health issues. Only an ophthalmologist can tell that your blurry vision is due to glaucoma, myopia, wrong eyewear, aging, or any other problem. But till the time you get to the expert, we are here to guide you on how to improve blurry vision through eye exercises.
You can perform the 7 proven eye exercises below for blurry vision at home or your workplace also:
- 10-10-10 Eye Exercise
When your eyes keep focus for an extended time, they suffer from blurry vision. Whenever you are reading or working on a screen, follow a simple exercise. Look away for 10 seconds towards an object which is 10 feet away. Do this every 10 minutes to relax your eye muscles.
- Consciously Blinking
Whenever we are focusing on a screen, we blink less. But blinking is essential to circulate moisture in the eyes. This moisture lubricates and keeps your eyes refreshed. Therefore, you should consciously blink and hold it for 2 seconds while working on the screen. In this way, you can avoid blurry vision.
- Covering With Palm
To prevent eye fatigue, you should rest your eyes at regular intervals. Palming the eyes is one of the most straightforward eye exercises which you can do anywhere. Rub your palms with each other to generate some heat. Then cover your eyes with your palms for 10 minutes. Use this time for relaxing and deep breathing.
- Move Eyes Around
Move your eyes in all directions, i.e., right, left, up, and down without moving your head. When you move your eyes in a direction, you might notice a slightly blurry vision. But it will settle in a few seconds. This is one of the best eye exercises for blurry vision and healthy eye muscles.
- Move Eyes Clockwise
Imagine there is a clock in front of you. Now move your eyes clockwise starting from 12. This eye exercise improves your peripheral vision. Your capacity to stretch your vision also increases. You can do this exercise at least 3 to 4 times a day.
- Changing Focus
This is also one of those eye exercises which you can perform anywhere, anytime. Focus on something near you, like a pen. Then focus on a distant object like a tree. This eye exercise not only provides relief from blurry vision. It also helps to strengthen your visual acuity and improves your central vision.
Set your focus on a far-off point like a mountain or horizon. Now start swinging back and forth. Keep your focus and concentration on the same thing all the while. Don’t forget to blink your eyes when you sway. This eye exercise will prevent dry eyes and clear debris from your eyes.
If you don’t have any significant eye health issues, you can get rid of blurry vision on your own by doing these eye exercises regularly. These exercises improve your vision and nourish your eye muscles.
