Eye Exercises  ⁄  Myopia and Binocular Vision Development, part 4

The right vision is based on some simple visual habits that develop in early childhood. But, for different reasons, lots of children in age range of 3-6 years develop incorrect visual skills, which evolve into myopia by adolescence. One of the most important skills is binocular vision. In lessons 8, 9 and 11, I provided exercises for developing eye action in the visual act. The next step is the fusion of two images into one.

Lesson 13 – Myopia and Binocular Vision Development, part 4

For the following exercises, make two rings from strips of green and red paper about 1cm in width. Put the rings on the forefingers; green on the left one, red on the right one as so:


Then stand 2-3 meters from the visual target and arrange the tips of forefingers a little below the line connecting the visual target with the bridge of your nose. Look at the target. The image of your forefingers will divide into two as in the picture:


Now bring the fists nearer to each other so that the internal images of your forefingers have fused. There can be three variants. If both eyes are of equal dominance (visual ambidexterity), the middle ring will opalesce, changing color from green to red and back. This opalescence shows the retinas’ struggle for leadership:


In case of a left-eye dominant vision you see two green rings and one red ring:


In case of a right-eye dominant vision you see two red rings and one green ring:


If you have the second or third variant, you should periodically close the stronger eye to activate the weaker eye. Then you will see the picture as in the first variant. Opalescence indicates that both eyes take equal part in vision, and each of them takes the leader function periodically. It is the retina’s struggle for leadership.

Your eyesight could be made better by natural methods.

    I did it with green and red colours and didn’t succeed because I have daltonism. But with blue and yellow colours I succeed visual ambidexterity.

    I am confused which is the eye that is dominant. It switches between a right and left dominance. Sometimes I see two green, sometimes two red.

    Do you know which is dominant? When I use the DSLR, I will automatically use the left eye. The degree in my left eye are also higher for astigmatism and myopia, does this mean my left eye is dominant?

    But I will practice to achieve ambidexitery. 🙂
