Did you know that daily eye exercises can help mental health, among other disorders? You brush your teeth every day. Why wouldn’t you stimulate your brain every day? Now, more than ever, it’s important to get back on track with movement and activity. The pandemic has given us a year of atrophy due to social distancing, limited emotional interactions due to masks, and exercise restrictions due to gym closures. It’s time to get moving and feel healthy again, in both mind and body.
Move your eyes and you activate your brain.
- Eye pursuits activate the parietal lobe which influences sensory and motor, which is pain and suffering.
- Saccades, which are faster and reflexive, influence behavioral patterns through the frontal lobe.
- The ability to fixate on an object occurs when the frontal lobe and the back inferior part of your brain (the cerebellum) work in concert.
Loss of function of any of these three eye movements results in loss of brain function. This can lead to symptoms of increased anxiety, depression, and many other behavioral disorders.
There is a good solution. Research in eye tracking diagnostics and rehabilitation has exploded in the past decade and offers an alternative to taking prescription psychotic medications. My office utilizes Right Eye Tracking Soft-ware for the diagnostic interpretation, and Focus Builder app for specific eye exercises. My protocol starts with baseline testing, with retesting every 7-10 days to determine improvement.
