  1. 1
    Eye relaxation.
    Each and every health-care professional would certainly advise this tip - RELAX THE EYES. The eyes are the same as the body, in that they can get tired as well, and require relaxation techniques. One of the most common and easy to do exercise for the eyes is placing the hands together and then rubbing them smoothly, until they generate heat. After that, place your warmed up hands over your eyes for couple of seconds. Through this method, the eyes are able to relax. Alternating cold and hot compresses can also soothe the eyes. Breathing fresh air is another one way of relaxing the eyes, since it can decrease stress. Oxygen plays a significant part in the brain and in the eyes.

  2. 2
    Eye exercises.
    As mentioned above, there are exercises that can relax the eyes, and the primary purpose of these exercises is to facilitate the normal functioning of the muscles in the eyes. For instance, one could do the 20/20/20 type of eye exercise. To do this, every 20 minutes, you should focus on a certain object, which is 20 feet away, for about 20 seconds. This exercise can truly soothe the eyes, making them feel much better. Another great eye exercise technique is having a friend put his or her thumb about five inches away from your face, and then you should focus on it. After 5 seconds, you should focus or take a look at something behind the thumb. This exercise could be done about 10 times.

Questions and Answers

Can you see farther with a calamansi powered flashlight?

Yes, you can use calamansi to power a flashlight. The concept is this: You will need materials made of zinc and copper. For zinc, it could be a galvanized screw, nail, or coin (penny) made of zinc. For copper, it could be a copper coin or any other material made of copper. The zinc material will be the negative electrode and the copper material will be the positive electrode. If using calamansi, make a slit on each of two calamansi, where you will stick the zinc and copper materials on the separate calamansi. Then attach a copper wire to each, which in turn, can be attached to a LED light bulb. See if the LED light bulb will light up!
