Personally, I believe that knowing how to relieve eye strain is one of the best thing you can do for your eyes.
Eye strain is in fact a critical factor in cause of poor eyesight.
According to studies, many people do not know how to rest their eyes effectively.
Many just rub their eyes and continue on with their work which is actually bad for your wonderful eyes.
Too much eye rubbing may cause eventual corneal erosion plus it doesn't help relaxing the eye either.
In this article, I will like to share some eye relaxation techniques that can help you reduce eye strain effectively.
I highly recommend you to use them to relieve the build up stress within the eyes after long hours of close-up work.
This is one of my favorite relaxation technique.
The express way to reduce eye strain.
This technique only requires 30 seconds to 1 minute of your time.
This is a instant relief to get back to near point work quickly.
Do it frequently (every 20 minutes) especially with computer work.
You will find that you are able to last longer than you normally do. Check out eye yoga for more similar exercises.
My ultimate love. It is so good that my wife harasses me every night for this wonderful eye relief.
Best of all, it is easy to do. All you need is a cloth (I prefer microfiber as it can absorb more water), hot water and a comfortable pillow.
I usually prepare the hot water first and kept them in thermos flask so that i can have multiple sections throughout the day.
Let me warn you though, this reduce eye strain technique is very addictive.
Today, I will feel uncomfortable if I do not do it before I sleep.
The feeling of muscles around and in my eyes releasing their tension is just too heavenly.
I highly recommend using cloths that are made of microfiber. They absorb much better and is easier to drain than a standard cotton cloth.
This method allows you to enjoy two benefits at one time - reduce eye strain and absorb vitamin D.
To avoid turning sunning into sun tanning, choose time between 8am to 10am.
Don’t wear your contact lens during sunning.
If you are able of getting too much UVA and UVB rays, you can always cover your face and eyelids with sun block.
Proper breathing technique helps to relax the tension in every part of our body including our eyes.
What’s more is that our eyes need one-third as much oxygen as our heart, thus to know how to breath well is crucial for maintaining good eye health.
This method is similar to meditation.
It helps to ground you and relax your mental mind too. It is a great technique for wholesome relaxation.
If you feel dizzy, breath normally for a while and do lesser counts.
