Eye Exercises  ⁄  Extraocular Muscle Warm-up

Nearsightedness, in its early stages, is not a disease, it is adaptive change of the eyes to improper actions.  The Dynamic Fixation Method is based on the idea that if your eyes start moving in the right way, your sight will become sharper. In the previous lessons, you began to feel your external ocular muscles. If you want to have strong vision, you must control both – the performance of the exercise and its outcome. The outcome of the exercises is estimated visually, and the performance is controlled through muscle sense in real time.

Extraocular Muscle Warm-up

This exercise goal is to warm up and stretch out the extraocular muscles. In this way, we prepare them for work. So when do oculomotor muscles start working? – As soon as we wake up and open our eyes. That is why I recommend doing this warm-up as soon as you wake up, lying on your back in bed with closed eyes.

Eye Exercises  ⁄  Myopia vs Best Vision – Feeling the Extraocular Muscles

Myopia (Nearsightedness) versus best vision – who wins? According to statistics, myopia leads today. The majority of teenagers have vision problems. I do not agree with the current situation and offer you a suite of exercises called the Dynamic Fixation Method for improving vision the natural way.

Feeling the Extraocular Muscles

In the last lesson, you learned to fix your eyesight on the target during head movement. I hope that my tips have helped everyone achieve smooth movements. In this lesson, you’ll feel how the extraocular muscles work.

Look at the black circle and turn your head to the right. Pay attention to the strain in the left corners of your eyes. This strain indicates the right eye medial rectus muscle (2) and the left eye lateral rectus muscle (5) are working. This feeling will be stronger the more the head is turned. (More deviation leads to more strain).

Eye Anatomy  ⁄  Extraocular Muscles

The eyeball is situated in the orbit, the bony socket in the skull, and it rotates by means of the six extraocular muscles: lateral rectus, medial rectus, superior rectus, inferior rectus, superior oblique, and inferior oblique.

The first five muscles, except for the inferior oblique, begin in the back of the orbit near the top. These muscles then pass anteriorly, towards the eyeball, forming a divergent cone. The rectus muscles are directly fasten to the sclera. The superior oblique muscle passes along the superior-medial corner of the bony socket to the cartilaginous block, slips through the loop of the block and changes its course to cross the eye axis, then passes under the superior rectus muscle and fastens to the sclera at the superior-lateral quadrant of the eyeball.

The inferior oblique muscle begins from the inferior-medial corner of the orbit, passes across the eye axis under the inferior rectus muscle, and fastens to the sclera behind the tendon of the lateral rectus muscle.

Eye Anatomy  ⁄  Eyeball Anatomy

The normal eye is a sphere with about a 24-millimeter diameter and has three layers. The outer layer is the fibrous tunic of eyeball, the middle is the vascular tunic of eyeball, and the inner is the nervous tunic of eyeball, called the retina.

The parts of the fibrous tunic are the sclera and the cornea. The sclera is smooth and durable. The back part of the sclera is the thinnest, especially around the optic nerve. The front part of the outer layer, called the cornea, is transparent.

The parts of the vascular tunic are the iris, the ciliary body, and the choroid.
