Simple Chair side eye exercise for IT professionals

Chair side eye exercise will make your eyes more mobile and reduce risk of developing refractive errors. Even though there is no evidence that eye exercise will help you to correct vision errors, but they can do wonders in preventing it. Yes! Even a simple eye massage during working hours can help you to get rid of various eye diseases like dry eyes, blurred vision, short-sightedness (myopia), long-sightedness(hyperopia) and what not?

In this article, you are going to get familiarized on some basic chair side exercises that you can do during your tea time or even during your client's phone chatting. The below exercises will relax your eye muscles especially extra-occular muscles and make your eyes feel better.

Eye Massage

First we start with a simple and an easy massage technique that you can perform with your hands. This massage not only improves the blood supply in your eyes but also  eliminates dark circles below it thus playing an important role in cosmetics as well. This exercise will also remove head aches without having any pain killers.

Procedure:
  1. Slowly tap out a circle around your eye with your index and middle fingers. This tapping will increase the blood supply and gives you a soothing effect.
  2.  If you know acupuncture points in your eye like The Zan Zhu point,Si Zhu Kong point or Yang Bai point, then you can directly massage those points which relieve symptoms of pain and swelling in and around your eye.
  3.  If you are not aware of those points, don't worry! Gently press some areas like the inner-eye area, next to  nose (temples) and outer eye area away from nose(end of the eye). Just press those areas in circular motion for 5 to 10 seconds. Repeat it for 5 to 7 times. 
  4. By doing this, you will be relaxed and relieved from ongoing tensions and headaches.This gentle massage will stimulate the tear glands thus preventing dry eyes.

Pointing Finger Exercise 

Yet another easy exercise that can be performed from your chair.
  • Point your index finger in front of your eyes. 
  • Now slowly move your finger towards left and right side of your body.
  • While moving, make sure that your eyes focus only on the direction of that moving finger. 
  • Now look away for a moment and again focus on the outstretched index finger. 
  • Move your finger towards and away from your eye and focus on that direction as well. 

Accommodation exercise

  1. Hold your right index finger at eye level, about half an arm's length from your eye. 
  2. Hold your left index finger about 15 centimeters behind it.
  3. In a steady rhythm, look from one finger to the other. 
  4. Do this for one minute.

Butterfly exercise 

This exercise will prevent you from dry eyes which occurs due to lack of sufficient lubrication and moisture on the surface of the eye.
  1. Face forward with your head straight and relax your facial muscles and lower jaw. 
  2. Then open and close both eyelids for 20 times. 
  3. Keep your muscles relaxed during this time – your eyelids should move gently and effortlessly, like the wings of a butterfly.
These are some basic exercises that can be done when you are at your office. Hope this article is useful for you. If you have any doubts feel free to ask through comments section.
