Here are some eye exercises you can use to
complement you Trayner glasses.
Start with 5 minutes a day, later you may
wish to inrease to 5 minutes twice a day. These exercises are best
done without glasses or contact lenses.
1. Palming - Cup your hands and place them
gently over your closed eyes. Total darkness is very therapeutic
and relaxing for the eyes. Palming may be done at any time during
the day to revive tired eyes. Whilst palming your eyes perform the
following exercise: Keeping your head still, look down as far as
you can, then return your eyes to the centre. Continue by looking
to the right as far as possible, up as high as you can and then
to the left, returning the eyes to the centre after each movement.
Repeat this 10 times.
2. Tromboning - Focus on an object, eg a
pen tip, held at arm's length. Slowly (take at least 5 seconds)
bring it in until ir touches your nose, focusing on it all the time.
Move in and out 10 times.
3. This is similar to exercise 1. This time
focus on a pen or other object held in your hand. Hold this directly
in front of you and move it slowly as far down as you can continue
to see it. Focus on it all the time, wiggle it if necessary to help
you see it. Repeat for the other directions, focusing on the object
on the outward movement only. Repeat 10 times.
