7 Exercises That'll Improve Eye Health

Other than our heart, our eye muscles are the hardest working muscle group in the body. It doesn't matter whether you're at work, at the gym or relaxing at home – we still stare at screens. These habits weaken our eye muscles, making them tired and less efficient, which in turn weakens our eyesight and exacerbates existing problems. These seven easy exercises will reduce the strain on your eyes – a leading cause of tension and tiredness.
