What are some good eye exercises?

I spend heaps of time in front of the laptop and sometimes my eyes get tired and certain things become fuzzy or hard to focus on. Usually I just close my eyes for a few minutes and it gets better and I also know this thing where you put your thumb close to your eye, focus, stare at something a but further away, focus and then something far away and keep repeating a few times which is meant to strengthen your eye muscles. Are there any others you know that work?

    Eye exercises cannot improve the eyesight including nearsightedness or farsightedness. However, doing them regularly can help you relieve the eye strain and it can also prevent you from getting nearsighedness if you have perfect vision. I know some eye exercises that can help relieve the eye strain. You can do as follows: 1. Blink your eyes as fast as you can to refresh your eyes. 2. Close the eyes tightly for some time and then open. repeat doing this for several munutes. 3. Roll your eyes in clockwise, then counterclockwise for several times. Hope this help you.

    One of the simple eye exercises is to use a pen and draw the letter E on a piece of paper. Exercisers are required to put the paper near the eye and try to concentrate firstly on the uppermost bar, and then on the lowest bar and finally the center bar. After that, place the paper a few feet away and repeat such a process until the E on the paper is invisible. After that, bring back the pen and start a new round of the above steps.

    Why not buy a pair of computer glasses? computer glasses are designed to block computer reflections and filter glare. Eye exercise can help relieve eye strain after you using your eyes for a long time. But they can't help eliminate the chances of getting tired. So a pair of computer glasses can help protect your eyes. Have a try immediately. Good luck!

    Eye exercises can help reduce eye fatigue. And most of them are quite easy. But I don't know which kind of eye exercise can be called good eye exercise. I think most of them are very good. Gently massage the muscles around our eyes will make us feel more comfortable after staring at the computer screen for a long time. If your eyes are very itchy, you can flush your eyes with some artificial tears. Don't rub your eyes randomly after computer work. Hope this helped!

    Sweetie, from what you say, I can guess that you may need a pair of computer glasses. computer glasses can filter glare and correct our vision at a fixed distance. They will provide with clear vision. So we can view the computer screen for a long time. Eye exercise can help relieve eye fatigue after we feel discomfort in our eyes, but they can't help any further. So I think a pair of computer glasses are better than eye excercises.
