We all look at the screen for too long… we know we do. So take five minutes out and away from the computer, laptop, ipad and read on…Screen shot 2014-09-24 at 17.12.19
Austrian eyewear company Silhouette have developed simple exercises to keep your eyes free from strain: Eye yoga will relieve eye strain and soothe sore eyes after a long day of looking at a computer or driving.  These basic eye exercises can prevent tiredness in the eyes, strain, pains and long term affects. The ideal eye fitness programme is so simple and you don’t need the help of any equipment, just some spare time, even if it’s only 5 minutes…. 
As you are reading or staring at your computer screen, let your eyes wander every so often by looking away and staring into the distance. Silhouette recommends you treat your eyes to some yoga to relax and re-charge…

1 Sit down and close your eyes

2 Rub your hands together to warm them up

3 Lay your warm, cupped palms gently over your eyelids (without touching them) and feel the energy start to flow! The warmth and darkness will provide some much needed relaxation for your eyes

4 When your palms start to cool down, gently remove your hands from your eyes – making sure you keep your eyes closed
