Lastly, Figure 8s are another strengthening exercise for the eyes to help improve symptoms of eye fatigue. In a standing or seated position, imagine a figure 8 on it’s side (an infinity symbol) about 10 feet in front of you directly at eye level. Without moving your head, trace the figure 8 with your eyes, completing one full rotation in one direction and then in the opposite direction. Breathe and blink normally as you continue the movement with your eyes. Try for 3-4 figure 8s in each direction.
There are plenty more eye yoga exercises you can incorporate, but by simply trying to make time each day to complete these three, you can foster good eye health and strength and alleviate uncomfortable eye strain.
