Eye Tracking Exercises
Lazing at the porch with a cup of hot espresso and a copy of bestseller or spending a Sunday fiddling with joystick playing Combat and Mario may sound extremely fascinating after a week of stress and slog in front of the computer. But amidst all the fun and work, do you ever realize the amount of stress and anxiety you expose your peepers to? Eye health is a humungous concern and dealing with poor eyesight is never easy. Understand that your eyes, much like all other organs of your body, are controlled by muscles that require exercise to stay and feel healthy. One of the better ways to improve eyesight is through eye tracking exercise. Not only do these exercises improve eyesight, they also help to hone eye focus and enhance eyes tracking abilities. If you believed that you had perfect vision once and that it is probably deteriorating by now, then checking out the following exercises on eye tracking will probably save you from going blind. Eye Strengthening Workouts
- Sit down on a comfortable chair with your back and head erect. Close your eyes and gently rest your palms over it. Hold your palms over your eyes for a minute and then remove them gently, while keeping your eyes shut. Breathe deeply and drop your head forward. Now turn your head from side to side, rotating your shoulders from front to back. Do it several times a day to de-stress your eyes and enjoy a great vision.
- Sit erect and hold your index finger close to your nose. Make sure that your finger does not touch your skin or is too close to your face. Slowly move the finger away from your body, while keeping your gaze fixed on your fingertip. Stretch out your arm as much as possible. Now return the finger to its normal position. Ensure that your focus is fixed on your finger. Repeat this exercise for about 15 times every day to enhance your eye flexibility and boost your eye-tracking movement.
- If you thought that eye-exercise was a boring affair, try this flashlight exercise to add some fun to your doings. You can ask your friend or partner to assist you in this exercise. Switch off the lights of a room and carry two flashlights inside. Pass one flashlight to your friend and ask him to focus the light on random objects in the room. Now using your own flashlight, try to track out the objects. This exercise can be real fun and can improve your eye tracking power too.
- For this exercise, you will need a string and a tennis ball. Attach the string to the ball and hang it to the ceiling or fan. Strike the string gently so that the ball begins to move in random directions. Now stand straight in a place and try to track the ball with your eyes. Doing this exercise will boost your eye-coordination as well as help you track objects at different speeds.
- If you wish to improve your eye focus, then trying this exercise will leave you with positive results. Just shut your one eye with your hand and focus on a far away object with your other eye. Now shift your attention to an object close to you. Repeat this exercise on your next eye. Doing this exercise for three to four times in a day will help your eye maintain proper focal length and boost your eye focus too.
