Do Sumbhari Mudra: Look up to see V of eye brows and then down to see the tip of nose. Do this 10 times.
Swinging Swinging not only improves your eyes but relieves or cures pain, discomfort and fatigue. Stand with your feet about 1 foot apart, squarely facing one side of the room. Lift the left head a short distance from the floor while turning the shoulders, head & eyes to the eight until the line of shoulder is parallel with wall. Now turn the body to left after placing the left heel upon the floor and raise the right head.
Alternate looking from right wall to left wall being careful to move head and eyes with the movement of shoulders. When swinging practice easily, continuously without effort and without paying any attention to moving object.
Flashing / Blinding Blink your eyes consciously every 5 minutes. Shut your eyes and roll the eye ball behind closed lids every now and their. Close your eyes and take some deep, slow breathe.
Palming A still greater degree of rest can be obtained by closing and covering the both eyes and covers them with the palms of both hand, the fingers crossed over upon the forehead.
For relaxing your eye muscles close your eyes. Rub your hand together fast. Bring the warm hands up and place them on your closed eyes. Let the healing heat from your hand soothe your eyes. Take a long deep breath in and then exhale slowly and conformably. Repeat this for exhalation also. Remove the hands slowly as you open your eyes softly. Blink a few times and return to work.
For eye circles Sit still in your chair with both feet flat on the floor. Begin breathing long and deep. Begin to move only your eyes. Roll your eyes in circles clockwise for 3 long, deep breaths. Then roll your eyes anticlockwise for 3 long deep breaths. Blink your eyes rapidly for 10 seconds gently close your eyes and relax for 3 long, deep breaths.
