Our eye muscles work virtually all the time we are awake. They are responsible not only for moving the eyes up and down or left and right but for targeting or “seeing” each single object. It is fact that eye muscles are made several times stronger than what they really have to be in order to do their job. However, putting constant pressure on them by not allowing the eyes to chill finally leads to decay of their strength and flexibility. Feeble eye muscles eventually contribute to an overall feel of eye strain and eye fatigue and potentially lead to the development of diverse eye aberrations.
One of the simplest paths to look after your visual acuity naturally is to take care of the muscles accountable for it. The following simple Diagonals Eyestrain Vision Exercise is designed to help you preserve the flexibility of your eye muscles.

You can eat carrots as a snack or you can make soups, salads or side dishes…”
Blueberries support healthy eye functioning through their antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, collagen-stabilizing, vasoprotective and rhodopsin-regenerating properties.
Eating blueberries regularly improves vision and strengthens blood vessels in the back of the eyes. Blueberries also contain anthocyanins, which help lower both high blood pressure and inflammation and also prevent blockages in the arteries that feed oxygen to the retina.
