1. Call The Ball

Write letters or quantities of various sizes on a softball, kickball or soccer ball. Hang it through the ceiling on a string and provides it a push in a direction. As it swings, call out the letters or numbers the thing is. The Optometric Extension Program Foundation markets a large number of visual exercise items, from low-tech flashcards directed at day care children to sophisticated computer systems for behavioural optometrists who are experts in athletic eye/hand coordination. If you love to delve deeper into vision improvement, contact the OEP for a catalog or a referral with a behavioural optometrist towards you.

2. Follow Your Thumb

Several times each day, hold your thumbs out at arm's length and move it in slow circles, crosses, Xs and in-and-out motions. Without moving your head, follow it with your eyes. Keep it - and the entire room - in focus as much as possible.

3. Palming

This helps relax tired eyes. Briskly rub the hands together for Just a few seconds or so until believe that warm. Close the eyes and cup your warm palms them over. Make sure your palms are cupped enough so they do not touch your eyelids. Your fingers should overlap and rest in your forehead. Holding this situation, breathe deeply and regularly for a couple minutes.

4. Bead And String

Thread three coloured beads along a bit of string or yarn about six feet long. Fasten one end to some wall at eye height and contain the other to the tip of the nose. Slide one bead close to the wall, the second about 4 feet from your nose as well as the third about a foot from you. Look at the farthest bead. You must see two strings forming a V together with the bead at its point. Next concentrate on the middle bead. You should see two strings forming an X with all the bead at its cross point. Then look at the nearest bead. It's also advisable to see an X. if the eyes work as an organization, as they should, you'll always see two strings crossing if you focus on a bead. Or else, you may see only one string, suggesting that your particular brain is suppressing information out of your weaker eye. If you see only one string, consult a behavioural optometrist.

5. Close this article

If you do close-focus work - reading, sewing, wiring, or computer work - tack the front page of a newspaper to some wall about eight feet away. Every ten mins or so, take a short break out of your work and look at it, scanning the massive headline type, small subheads and the fine print. This helps maintain your focusing ability and minimizes the blurred vision many close-focus workers experience at the end of the day.
