Vision Exercises for Seniors

We often talk about exercising your aging loved one's mind and body, but what about their eyes? Believe it or not, there are ways you and your senior can give your eyeballs a work out to avoid vision decline and even naturally improve your vision.

Exercising your eyes daily can ensure optimal vision and healthy eye aging, but we can't exactly hit the treadmill for this type of workout…

Here are some easy ways you can exercise your eyes no matter where you are:

  • Roll your eyes in a circular motion clockwise ten times and then reverse to counter clockwise for another ten rolls.
  • Massage your temples and forehead in small, circular motions for about 30 seconds. Do not apply a lot of pressure to your eye as this could cause damage.
  • Place a small object six inches away from your nose and stare it for five seconds. Then stare behind the object for another five seconds. Do this for about two minutes each day.

The best thing about these exercises is that they are easy to do and you can encourage your aging loved one by doing it with them. Be sure to consult your eye doctor for more eye exercises customized to your health!
