All Correct, Natural Relaxed Vision Habits; Shifting, Central-Fixation, (Centralizing) Relaxation… and Natural Eyesight Improvement Activities Remove Astigmatism.
The astigmatism wheel tests for astigmatism.
Shifting, tracing on the lines, circles on the wheels helps to remove astigmatism.
See the astigmatism wheel pictures below;
Print the astigmatism wheels large on 8 x 11 paper for practice at far and closer distances.
Print a small copy for practice at close and reading distances up to 3, 2 inches from eyes.
Place the wheel at eye level.
Stand and look at the wheel.
Shift, trace on the lines, circles.
Shift, trace on one line or circle at a time.
Use correct vision habits.
Example; shift on the horizontal line.
Move the eyes, center of the visual field left and right along the line.
Move the head/face with the eyes.
Remember, imagine the line dark black, straight and clear.
Do this with the eyes; open, closed, open.
Practice with both eyes together, then one eye at a time, only left, then only right…, then with both eyes together again.
Next; practice on a vertical or diagonal line.
Practice on all the lines one line at a time.
Remember to use central fixation; see one small part of the line darkest black and clearest at a time in the center of the visual field.
The center of the visual field moves with the eyes as the eyes move, shift/trace from part to part.
Now; practice on the circles, one circle at a time.
Trace (move the center of the visual field) on the black ink around a circle counterclockwise and clockwise.
Shift on a circle; top and bottom, left and right, diagonally…
Move the head/face with the eyes.
Shift, trace a circle and remember, imagine the circle dark black, clear and perfectly round.
Practice with the eyes open, closed, open.
Practice with both eyes, one eye at a time, then both eyes together again.
(The circle may appear oval; the width or the height too long if the eyes contain astigmatism and/or it may appear uneven, wavy, some areas clear, some areas blurry…)
Imagining the circle round, dark black, clear removes the astigmatism and it will eventually be seen round and clear.
Use central fixation; see one small part of the circle darkest black and clearest at a time in the center of the visual field.
Shift or trace continually, relaxed from part to part on the circle.
The clear center of the visual field moves with the eyes from part to part.
When the vision is unclear, contains astigmatism, other conditions, the person might tend to avoid moving the eyes in specific directions.
This cause’s eye muscle tension, more astigmatism, blur.
Shifting, tracing on the circles, and on the lines horizontally, vertical, diagonally gets the eyes moving easily in any direction, relaxes the eye muscles, improves eye muscle function, and brings the eye, cornea to its correct round, smooth, even shape for removal of astigmatism and, also improves convergence, divergence, accommodation, un-accommodation and the clarity of vision.
Keep the astigmatism wheel charts on a wall at home, work and glance at them sometimes (shift, remember, imagine it dark black, clear, correct shape) to keep the vision clear.
It is normal for the eye to experience a tiny bit of temporary astigmatism occasionally.
This is due to the cornea being an added shape to the round eye.
The shape of the eye, cornea can also change frequently, causing a little astigmatism temporarily due to stress, diet, squinting, staring…
Shifting on round objects; a ball, globe, circle keeps the eye and cornea in its normal healthy,
round, even shape for correct focus of light rays onto the eyes retina. See picture;
