Here's How To...
Improve Your Eyesight

Near/Far Focusing

Near point stress has often been quoted as a leading cause of myopia. It refers to the fact that people do too much near focusing, such as reading a book or looking at a computer screen. This causes the eyeballs to strain as they try to focus. As a result, the eyeballs adapts by changing its shape, becoming fatter and more circular.

Here's an exercise that will teach the eyeballs to return to their original shape by simply focusing both near and far: 

Hold up a finger or a pencil in front of you, about 6 inches away. 

Choose another object that's at least 20 feet away. 

These will be your near and far points respectively. 

Two Dot Exercise

Alternate between the near and far objects, looking at each for about 2 seconds at a time. Repeat until you feel your eyes really working, then persevere some more.

Better Posture = Better Eyesight

Correct posture while sitting is important for vision health. Close eye work such as reading or working at a computer poses increased visual demands by itself; when posture is imbalanced or in any other way improper, the demands on the vision system become even higher. Exposing vision to constant stress leads to various eyesight disorders as well as to some unpleasant symptoms such as headaches, neck strain, back pain and wrist pain. Basic rules to improve your posture include:

1. Sit with pelvis pushed back in the seat to the point where it touches the back of the chair.
2. Keep back straight yet relaxed – let your body weight rest on your pelvis. Ideally, back and pelvis should form a 90-degree angle.
3. Knees should be bended in 90-degree angle and feet must touch the floor.
4. Place arms on desk or on arms of the chair but never use them to support the weight of upper body.
