1. Clockwise circle
Concentrate on the red dot and slowly follow its movements with your eye, keeping healthy one covered.
2. Counterclockwise circle
Repeat the same circle movement following the red dot, but counterclockwise this time. Repeat for 2 minutes.
Now it’s time to move your eye up and down, following the straight line. You can also move it from right to left, as an addition to this exercise.
4. Right moving tornado
Following the red dot, move your eye in a spiral-like motion. Notice, that the direction is clockwise.
5. Left moving tornado
Now you need to repeat this movement but the other way around. Imagine that you are drawing a counterclockwise spiral with your eye.
Starting from the top left, slowly move your eye down, from left to right. Imagine, you’re drawing a zigzag.
Again, starting from the top left, move your eye to the bottom right of the screen, then up to the top right. Continue by moving it to the bottom left and finish at the top left, where you started.
From the bottom left, move your eye all the way up to the top right and then back. You need to “draw” a slanted line.
Starting from the bottom, follow the red dot and try to “draw” a smooth, curved line with your eye.
Starting from the middle of the screen, follow the dot’s movements to create an infinity sign shape.
Now you need to start from the outside and slowly move your eye to the central point. You need to make a spiral shape with your eye.
12. Decreasing circle
This exercise will require you to concentrate on the red dot even more. Follow its movement and try to see how it decreases and increases in size.
13. Downward semicircle
Let your eye draw an imaginary semicircle.
14. Upward semicircle
And now let it draw the second half of the circle.
Starting from the top left of the picture, slowly move your eye to the top right in a straight line. Repeat exactly the same movement, but starting from the middle and then from the bottom left of the picture.
