Simple, Free Eye Exercises To
Improve Vision & Relieve Sore Eyes


These free eye exercises benefit your eyes by strengthening your eye muscles and enhancing local blood circulation.

This is achieved through acupressure and massage on pressure points around the eyes, and specific exercises to stretch and tone the muscles controlling the eyes.

If you have bright, lustrous eyes, according to traditional Chinese medical theory, it indicates you have an harmonious spirit, while dull eyes reflect the opposite.

While eye exercises alone may not harmonize your spirit, they will protect and improve your vision and relieve sore, tired eyes.

They are particularly useful for anyone who uses their eyes excessively, such as students, computer users, heavy readers, etc. Check with your health professional first though before trying these eye exercises, especially if you have a history of eye problems.
