Each eyeball contains six muscles that allow us to move our eyes and just like the muscles in our body, we need to exercise them.
Eye training exercises were created to help people improve sight, eye comfort, focus and coordination. Allowing your eyes to be in one position for a long period of time will cause them to become dry, sore and weak. If your eyes become dry, shut them as tightly as possible for 5 seconds, do this 5 times; this should help bring the moisture back to your eyes. You can also warm up your hands and cup them over your eyes or massage your temples. Massaging your temples will restore the blood flow to your eyes allowing in more oxygen.
If you focus on one thing for a long time frame, such as a computer or book, you may begin to strain your eyes and train them to primarily focus on a short distance. When you spend hours staring at something close to you, your eyes need to take a break. Use the eye training exercise of focusing on something that is at least ten feet away from you from at least ten minutes.

If you’re longing to improve your vision, eye comfort and processing ability for information, then you’ll be happy to know that there are eye training exercises such as visual therapy can help. You can use these exercises in combination with sessions that are controlled by an eye care professional to obtain the best results. Even if you don’t go to the eye doctor regularly, you can perform these exercises anywhere you desire. Not only can they improve ocular muscle response, but they also help you overcome learning disabilities that are associated with your vision.
You don’t need any special training and you don’t need any special equipment. All you need is time. The first exercise to train your eyes and keep them in good health includes the alpha ball. This exercise can actually be fun and can include other parties trying to improve or keep their eyesight healthy. What you’ll need is a beach or kick ball and a thick marker. Hang the ball from a string that is connected to the ceiling. Write letters on the ball with the magic marker of different sizes. When you’re finished, spin or swing the ball and call out the letters as you see them.
When it comes to associative skills, this exercise will help you improve them. Then there’s the thumb focusing exercise which is also easy to do. Hold out your thumb but at the level of your arms. Move it in slow circular motions and follow it with your eyes as you do. You should do this without moving your head and several times a day. This will increase the strength of your vision and help you keep your eyes active, healthy and functioning as they should be. You can also try heat eye training exercises. To do this, rub your hands together for at least a minute. During this time, they will generate heat between them.
