Ophthalmologist, Doctor of Medical Sciences, Professor Tatyana Shilova explained whether gymnastics for the eyes can save a person from glasses and in what cases it should be done.
She spoke about this in an interview with the Zvezda TV channel.
“Exercise for the eyes can only restore functional impairments, but not alter the anatomy of the eyes in any way. When we talk about gymnastics, we mean that the eye is tired, the muscle inside the eye has become more tense. In this case, performing a certain set of exercises, we relax her, give her the opportunity to work in a more balanced way,”the doctor explained.
She noted that if anatomical changes have already occurred in the eye, such as myopia, gymnastics may be ineffective.
“Wearing glasses and exercising are two things unrelated. When a person wears lenses or glasses, we can only make the eye work more correctly with exercises,”said Shilova.
