Practice slow and fast blinking to help reduce eye fatigue
Get a pencil and make a mark somewhere in the middle. You can draw a letter, a number or a dot on the side of the pencil body. In this exercise, focus your eyes on the pencil and the mark you drew, and then keep pulling the pencil back and forth in and out. It is generally believed that this pencil exercise is good for correcting diplopia and cross-eyes. If you have other vision problems, you might as well try it. After all, this method is free and painless, and it only requires your eyes to focus and refocus. Hold the pencil one arm in front of you. The pencil should be upright, which means that the end with the eraser should either face the ceiling or the ground.
If you ask someone to help you do the pencil exercise, you have to stretch out your arm to decide how far you should be. Keep your eyes focused on the mark you drew. You can’t proceed to the next step until you feel that your sight is really focused. Slowly draw the pencil closer, while keeping your eyes focused on the same spot. When the pencil is constantly being zoomed in, your eyes need to be constantly adjusted to maintain the same level of focus. Stop when you see two pencils.
Once you see the ghost of the pencil, don’t zoom in. Turn your gaze away, or close your eyes for a few seconds. Don’t move your head or pencil, but leave your eyes temporarily away from the pencil and focus on other things in your field of vision. If you find it difficult to do so, just close your eyes.Let your eyes go back to the pencil again. Once you feel your eyes are resting, try to focus on the pencil again and don’t see double images. If you still see double images, let your eyes rest for a few seconds and try again. If you still see double images on the second attempt, don’t be discouraged, you will do better in the future.
Go directly to the next step. Slowly pull the pencil away. At the same time keep your gaze focused on the mark you drew until the pencil is pulled an arm away. Repeated practice. Set aside 5 minutes of practice every day, and then you can slowly extend it to 10 minutes. If you find it difficult to master the time or keep your interest while practicing, you can listen to music at the same time. For example, two songs are about 5 minutes, 3 songs are about 10 minutes
Eat foods that promote healthy eyes
Although you may not be able to improve your vision with diet alone, you can at least ensure that your eyes get all the nutrients they need. These foods are good to improve vision:
- Green leafy vegetables (such as kale, beets, kale and spinach)
- Fish containing omega-3 fatty acids (such as salmon and tuna)
- Citrus fruits and juices (such as oranges, lemons, limes and grapefruits)
- Non-meat protein sources (such as bananas, beans, and nuts)
- Supplemental vitamins containing omega-3 fatty acids, such as lutein, zinc, vitamin C and E
Smoking can cause macular degeneration and cataracts in the future. If you have difficulty quitting smoking, you can find a mutual aid group to help you quit smoking, or find a psychologist to treat your addiction with drugs.
Reduce eye pressure
Like other muscles, the muscles around your eyes will start to feel fatigue and pain if the pressure is too strong. You can try the following techniques to relieve visual fatigue:
Practice the “20-20-20” method. If your work requires you to stare at the computer for a long time, you can take a break every 20 minutes and focus your eyes on a place 20 feet (6 meters) away for 20 seconds.
Dim the brightness. If you are staring at the computer or TV screen, you can adjust the screen brightness to the lowest. You can still see, but you won’t feel that you are looking at a bright light.
Increase the font size. If you are looking at a computer, you can increase the font size. If you are reading a book with a small font size, you can buy a magnifying glass for reading, or buy a book with a large font size
