For nearsightedness




Hello doctor,

I’m getting eye strain including dryness and redness very frequently these days. Some people said making a figure 8 with eyes is very helpful, but is there any requirements about distance between eyes and the figure 8?

And is changing focus of eyes the key way to keep eyes healthy during prolonged use of computers?

Also, how often do we need free lubricant eye drops to be more effective?

Thanks a lot!



Thanks for your question



You should imagine te figire of 8 about 10 feets away.

Another good exercise it to hold your finger about 5-10 Cm away from your eyes and focus on it then shift your eye to focus on something far like a clock on the wall.Keep shifting between far and near. This will relieve spasm of the intraocular muscles

You should keep using lubricant eye drops as far as you are using computer. Working on computers decreases the blinking rate and can worsening symptoms of dry eye.
