One of the most stressed organs in your body is your eyes. From the time you get up until the time you go to sleep, you use your eyes to do practically everything—household chores, gardening, and, not to mention, looking at the TV or the computer screen for a major part of the day. Even when you take a break, you look at your phone screen to thumb through pictures and posts.
FeedFond has compiled 10 simple exercises that you can do every day to relax your eyes and help them function better.
