Eye exercises are used to treat patients who have trouble using their eyes to see correctly. Eye exercising will keep your eyes healthy and help minimize eyestrain.
If you regularly experience symptoms such as eyestrain, blurred vision, headaches, increased sensitivity to bright light, tired eyes, or heavy eyelids, you may be a candidate for eye exercises.
Exercising eye muscles will not eliminate the most common maladies that necessitate corrective lenses — namely, nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia (age-related lens stiffening). Eye exercises do absolutely nothing for glaucoma or macular degeneration — serious diseases that require professional medical help.
