Some exercises for eye muscles are changing focus of the eyes from near to far and vice versa, staring at different objects with one eye covered, focusing the eye on a specific object, and following a pattern with the eyes, states WebMD. These exercises build vision muscles and improve focusing.
Although doctors often recommend eye exercises, little scientific evidence shows that the exercises can fix serious eye conditions, such as astigmatism and nearsightedness. Vision exercises help children suffering from amblyopia, which is a condition that is characterized by the decreased use of one eye in comparison to the other. Exercising the eye muscles can help train the eyes to have better depth perception, notes AllAboutVision.com.
