In brief: Not possible

Basing my answer on medical studies and research, it is not possible to cure farsightedness with eye exercises.
The problem is that the optical system of the eye is focusing the image behind the retina. Glasses or contacts correct this by refocusing the light. Eye exercises work on the eye muscles around the eye but not on the focusing of light on the retina.
