Eye Exercises

Sometimes your optometrist may recommend specialised eye exercises to help improve your visual system to allow you to see better and more comfortably.

These eye exercises are usually carried out with younger people but can sometimes help those who are older. For the best results, it is advisable to do the exercises regularly and avoid doing them when you are tired (your optometrist will explain how often they should be done).

Accommodation & Convergence Exercises

These eye exercises are to improve the strength and flexibility of the focussing (accommodation) and pointing (convergence) systems. The procedures will typically need to be carried out daily for 4-6 weeks before there is a noticeable improvement in visual performance. Our optometrists will usually schedule a follow up visit after 6 weeks of treatment. Occasionally you might experience some eye discomfort when first starting the exercises, but these usually recede as your visual system begins to improve.
