Here are some eye exercises you can use to complement you Trayner glasses.
Start with 5 minutes a day, later you may wish to increase 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.
