    For the past year I notice it is a bit hard to read small print without refocusing my eyes.

    What eye exercises can I do to maintain sharp eyesite.

    As it is I do forearm-stands (with legs leaning against a wall), 30 seconds, 3 times in the morning. Plus I do 30 min bike, 30 min knee therapy, 2 hour walk/pray

    I eat lot of carrots.

    Please help!

    Have you had your eyes tested?

    Nope, we are in lockdown.

    Even then, can an Internal Medicine Doctor do eye exam?

    But I wish to know exercises to strengthen. I've always been 20/20. I don't watch TV and I take breaks from computer screen. Also, I wear sunglasses when possible, even if I look silly (because of UV rays).

    You should see a proper eye doctor. Even walmart might have one and have opened now. Stressing the eyes will make the vision worse. Do you use reading glasses?

    No I don't use reading glasses.

    I can read clearly except for find print behind medicine bottles.

    Still good idea to get tested. I think a routine eye exam might work well.

    As soon as I get out of house, I'll get it checked. I wish there was a walmart nearby. Perhaps some other place, like walgreens, cvs, etc, etc.

    :hello: @SuiDhaaga
    Use your smar phone camera focus the area of fine print on label of bottle. Focus sucha way letter’s of fine print get large or magnified and click. Now select the gallery or photo and read the image comfortably.

    Regards.

    You should be getting a yearly eye exam in any case. I go to the optometrist at Costco.
