    While working on computer, laptop, or a mobile, you forget to blink your eyes because most of the work requires focusing. This makes your eyes tired and they lose on some strength. So, ensure you are blinking your eyes at an interval of every 3-4 seconds to reduce eyestrain and keep them refreshed.  


    1. 2. Figure of Eight

    Imagine there is a giant 8-digit figure in front of your eyes at about a distance of 10 feet. Turn it on its side and start tracing the silhouette with your eyes starting from one way (starting from left or right eye). Do this exercise slowly and switch to doing it from the other side. This is a simple exercise and increases flexibility of your eye muscles.
