Vision 20

One technique is known as Vision 20 Review tracing which prompts smooth movement in our eyes, allows them to relax and is very simple to do. Basically, pick an object such as a car, a building, a sofa and trace your eyes slowly around the shape of the object 3 or 4 times. This is just one exercise which enables us to use some of the muscles in our eyes that we may be neglecting in our busy daily lives. Myopia is caused by the eyeballs elongating. It is usually caused at a young age when children are asked to focus on close up objects such as books and drawings for long periods of time without the facility to rest their eyes at regular intervals to allow them to recover and prevent staring and straining. Straining usually occurs when the children are forced to learn new information that they find boring One exercise which helps relax our eyes and combat myopia effects on vision is called the Bates method, named after a renowned ophthalmology researcher named Dr. William Bates who created a chart of familiar shapes and letters which allows our eyes to take a break from school or work by focusing on the chart for a couple of minutes whenever our minds become overwhelmed by whatever we're doing. When our eyes are looking at familiar shapes they do not strain and so looking at the chart for 2 or 3 minutes during the day will allow them to relax. We can create such a chart ourselves and put it up at school or work. There have been quite a lot of innovations and new developments in the field of eyeglasses vision.
