As such, yoga trainer Nidhi S shared a few eye exercises that she said can help strengthen eye muscles and improve eyesight, if done regularly.

“Are you fed up wearing glasses and contact lenses because of your weak eyes. Try these moves to strengthen your eye muscles and improve your eyesight,” she said.

Eye pushups – This exercise will help correct convergence insufficiency. Do 10 times.
Fast and tight blinking – Blinking is important as it helps spread hydrating substances like tears and mucus across your eyes. Do each type of blinking 10 times.
