Eye Exercises for children with online classes

Yoga is an essential form of exercise that must be practised on a regular basis. In these times, when students are glued to their gadgets to attend school, performing eye yoga frequently can be greatly beneficial to their eyes, helping them improve their eyesight. There are several exercises which can help overcome eye-related problems such as short-sightedness (myopia) and long-sightedness (hypermetropia). Many eye disorders such as myopia and hypermetropia are related to the malfunctioning of the ocular muscles that may be caused by chronic mental and emotional tension. Here are a few exercises:

Now try to focus on your thumb nails.
Maintain this posture for all eye exercises.
Breathe normally. Ensure your eyes move along with the thumbs from your left to extreme right and from there back to extreme left of your sight.

Online classes are greatly affecting eyes of children and persuading them for performing daily eye exercises is difficult task and may not be practical.
It would be more beneficial if you can advise some additional vegetable/fruit recipes in daily diet plan for such children. more
