2.) Computer strain relief- For every ten minutes of computer use, take a break to gaze away from the computer while you wriggle your hands on either side of your head. This helps you develop and strengthen peripheral vision and relieves eye strain from gazing at a fixed direction for too long.

3.) Palming- Rub your hands together and close your eyes. Place your warm palms over your eyes and relax. Continue to rub and palm for about 15-20 minutes (if you have glaucoma, don’t do for more than 5 minutes, instead do more often). Palming
