Certain forms of eye training can be extremely successful and can be very supportive for various eye diseases, such as Macular Degeneration (AMD), Glaucoma or vision disorders such as short-sightedness or long-sightedness.
Strengthening vision with eye training – even with Macular Degeneration (AMD)
An improvement cannot be promised in every case, but from my point of view I can only advise (almost) every eye patient to start with a special eye training. For Glaucoma patients who are under a lot of stress, I would additionally recommend eye Qi Gong. And especially for children suffering from Myopia, eye training is very effective.
Eye training nourishes the eye muscle
The eye exercises improve the flexibility of the eye muscles and help to stimulate the metabolism and blood circulation in the eye, i.e. all the fluids involved in the eye process such as blood, aqueous humour, tear film and intercellular lymph are improved and the unconscious nervous system is harmonised.
It is desirable to do the exercises at an open window, at the same time you treat yourself to a small oxygen cure. Take several deep breaths, because this is the only way to ensure a sufficient oxygen supply to the blood. A good oxygen supply is essential for the entire organism and thus also for the nerve and visual cells of the eye.
Various eye exercises for Macular Degeneration (AMD)
There are a number of different eye exercises that have proven effective for vision disorders and eye diseases. You start with the simplest ones, which include eye rolling, so-called “vertical” and “horizontal” vision.
- All exercises should be done without glasses.
- Give your eyes a short break after each exercise!
- Patients with Macular Degeneration (AMD) or Glaucoma should perform all exercises gently.
Eye training exercise 1: Eye roll
Slowly roll your eyes around in a circle several times (10-12x) to the right and left. Move your eyes to the edge of your field of vision. Do the exercises slowly and with concentration.
Eye training exercise 2: Vertical
The eyes look upwards in the middle under slight tension, while the head – as with all eye exercises – remains motionless in a normal, relaxed position. Then lower the gaze as far down as possible. Repeat this 10-12 times.
Eye training exercise 3: Horizontal
From the corners of your eyes, fixate on your surroundings on the left and then move your eyes to the right and look at your surroundings on the right. Then relax again and repeat this exercise 10-12 times.
Do all the exercises at your own pace, as your condition allows. Another interesting report in this context: The importance of nutrition in Macular Degeneration.
