Although we have 5 senses, most of us have some that we would never want to live without. Included among the most important of our senses is sight, and we use it for more than what most people realize. On an ongoing basis, we gather information about the world around us through what we see and that information is used by the brain to help us in incredible ways.
Like anything we possess, it is important to use and exercise our sense of sight regularly if we want to keep it strong. If we don’t exercise our eyesight, we will eventually find that it is getting weaker and weaker. Fortunately, there are ways for you to keep your eyesight strong and healthy. The following 9 suggestions can be put into practice in your life and once you do, you will notice a difference very quickly.
1. Don’t overstrain your eyes during the day. Close them for a few minutes every couple of hours.
2. These 16 basic exercises can be used to give your eyes a workout every day. Do them in order daily.
