Eye gym device - the idea


- I wear glasses to correct nearsightedness (myopia) since I was 10 years old. I started with -0.5 for both eyes. When I was young (~ 16 years old, my myopia increased to -3) I found a book that present some exercises to improve vision. I started to do it and it was some moments when I could see very well, but this episodes does not take more than a few seconds. Unfortunately, after some time I give up.

After some time, I came across some books related to eyesight improvement and I decided start again the exercises for the eyes (now I have -4 for both eyes). I realize that I do not always manage to move my eyes on a well defined routes. Instead of a smoothly move , my eyes rather jump from one point to another. For this reason, I thought of a device to help me do it better.

- This device will project a light spot on the wall, moving it on some well-defined paths. It is composed from two mini servo motors (one to achieve movement on the horizontal axis and other one on vertical axis), a laser diode and an electronic module that controls all this thinks.

The movement of the light spot will continue on defined routes (see below), the speed can be controlled from the electronic module. In order not to tire too much the eye muscles, between set of exercises will be a pause used for their relaxation.

Obs: paths 11th and 12th are not implementated

How to made this device : here .

In order to control these 2 servo motors you have to take the following software.
Obs: the software is only at version2, so is not perfect, but is functional

- How to use it: This device will be placed at ~ 1 meter from the wall, and the user will sit at about 1.5 meters from the wall, behind the device. Try to arrange the device so that when it starts, the spot light should be positioned at your eye level, and in the center of the wall. Eyes will track the movements of light spot, without moving the head. If the beam is out of your visual field or is too hard for your eye to follow the spot at the extremes, you should reduce the distance between the wall and the device.

I hope that this device will help a lot of people to improve or prevent eyesight deterioration.

In the end, even is not a direct and visible connection, I would ask you to support me to build a matial arts center by donating as much as you wish.
Why I want this martial arts center ? (in a world that is becoming more oriented virtual : online frinds, online store, work from home,...) ?
Well, I want a place where people (children& adults) can obtain/learn/practice the following:
- healthy and enjoyable physical activity
- skills for "life": respect, self confidence, self-discipline, teamwork, setting and reaching goals ...
- self-defense,encouraging solving the conflicts in a nonviolent way
- ...

If you like it , maybe you will take in consideration a donation to the dojo:
