The focal flexibility exercise is an important and noteworthy exercise for myopia. Hold your finger 6 inches in front of your face. Focus your vision on the finger for 10 seconds.

Sunning
For this exercise, you will require a light source; a lamp with a 60 or 100 watt bulb is best. You must keep your eyes closed all through the exercise. Keep the eyes closed and turn directly to the light source. If you feel discomfort, move away from the light source. Picture a point on the horizon. Move the eyes and the head together, and turn slowly to the right, taking 3 – 4 seconds. Come back to the center. Next, turn to the left. Return to the center. Follow up the sunning exercise with palming. Also, closing your eyes and exposing them to the gentle early morning sun is recommended.
