Like any other muscle, the eye muscle even needs exercise if they are to be kept healthy and strong. Most of the times we only shift our gaze minimally from left to right, for example : while reading and turning our head to look elsewhere. By moving the eyes in every direction, without turning your head at all, these five exercises will strengthen the muscles and help to prevent eyestrain and improve eyesight. Breathe normally while you are practicing them.

First look up, then look down. Now look to the far right and then look far left. Next look up to the right, then look diagonally downward to the left. Repeat in the opposite direction. Now imagine a large clock - look up at 12 O'clock, then circle around it clockwise, quite slowly for two rounds then quicker for three. Repeat the exercise in an anti clockwise direction. Lastly, hold your thumb up about a foot from your face, and move your eyes from the thumb to the wall beyond and back. To end always put your "palm" covering your eyes as shown below.
