After working or driving on a computer for a long time, my eyes feel dim and tight. Most of the time, it is a temporary phenomenon, so it disappears naturally if you let your eyes rest.
Due to Corona 19, access to the outside has decreased and the amount of time at home has increased. As I use my computer and smartphone all day, my eyestrain keeps accumulating.
There are several factors that cause eye strain. Using your eyes in too bright or dark places puts a strain on your eyes. Staring at a fixed object can also cause fatigue in the focusing eye muscles. If you look at an object for a long time, your eyes will blink less. This can cause dryness and pain in your eyes.
In order to protect the health of your precious eyes, you need to manage them regularly. The US health and medical information website’Web MD’ introduced an exercise method that can relieve eye strain and pain.
1. Flashing and yawning
The fastest way to improve fatigue is to help your eyes heal on their own. If your eyes are dry after staring at only one thing for a long time, blink and yawn. These movements can moisten your eyes by stimulating them to produce tears. Blinking your eyes quickly can reduce pain by spreading tears all over your eyes.
2. Rolling the eyes
Eye rolling exercises known in yoga as “view while rotating” can help release muscle tension. Turn your eyes gently in one direction and return to the original position. Movement that relieves tension and pain in the muscles around and behind the eyes. Repeat 3 to 5 times every hour.
3. Change focus
Refocusing practice can reduce eye strain and pain. Repeat the following process 3 times after doing the work that makes your eyes tired.
Step 1: Focus your finger close to your nose, then move your finger away slowly.
Step 2: Extend your arms all the way and look at the distant object over your finger. Focus on the object for a few seconds and then look at your finger again.
Step 3: Keep focusing on your finger, moving it toward your face until it touches your nose. Then stare at an object on the other side of the room and focus for a few seconds.
4. Wrap your eyes with your palm
You can see two effects. First, closing your eyes for a while helps recover from fatigue. Second, it improves blood circulation in the eyes and speeds up recovery.
Rub the palm of your hand to warm it up. Close your eyes, close your eyes with your palms, and hold for 30 to 60 seconds. Repeat every time your eyes are tired.
5. Vertical movement
You can relieve tired eye muscles by turning your eyes vertically and horizontally. It is good to do it about once an hour.
With my eyes closed, I look at the ceiling and then look down at the floor again. Repeat the same action 3 times. With your eyes closed, look to the left, then turn around and look to the right. Repeat 3 times.
6. Warm compress
Apply a poultice with a warm wet towel or a heat mask. Warmth helps to relax the eye muscles and trigger tears.
