If your eyes are feeling fatigued, there are eye exercises that you can do at home to help improve your vision.
Perform these eye exercises to improve your vision
Palming: Perform this exercise when your eyes need relaxing. This can help reduce eye strain and stress. To do this, cover your eyes with your palms for about 3 minutes, do not apply too much pressure.
Zooming: This exercise can improve your focusing ability. First, stick out your thumb like you are hitchhiking. Slowly move your thumb closer to your face until it is 2 inches away, then stretch your arm back out while maintaining focus on the thumb. Do this exercise for 4 minutes.
Change of focus: This exercise can strengthen your eye muscles by changing focus. Place your thumb 10 inches away from your face and focus on it for 5 seconds, then quickly change your focus to something 20 feet or more away for 5 seconds, and then switch back to your thumb. Do this exercise for 2 minutes.
Infinity Circle: This exercise can improve your eye strength and flexibility. Focus on a wall 10 feet away and imagine an infinity sign or sideways 8. Trace the infinity sign for two minutes, and then trace it in reverse for two minutes.
Blinking: Blinking moistens your eyes which can help you focus longer. For 2 minutes, blink every four seconds. Do this exercise after looking at digital screens for long periods of time.
