Eye Training Machine




Introduction: Eye Training Machine

About: DIY carbon heated clothing.

Would you like to improve your eyesight? Do you want it at the same time you can continue to look for hours the screen of the tablet, read the book, not to be distracted from work or entertainment? It is possible! We have found a simple way and have already checked it.

Step 1: Theory and Life

Most of my life my eyes are looking at the same distance on a book or tablet screen. The eye muscles become accustomed over the years to focus on the same distance and I can not see objects farther away or closer. I have seen only the first 4 lines on the an eye examination Snellen chart. Doctors said that the eyes muscles atrophied ...

Step 2: The Method of My Father

There are many devices for training the eyes, but how many minutes a day you are willing to spend on them? Can you force yourself to do exercises for the eyes every day, month after month?

My father consulted with doctors and found a way to combine business with pleasure. Now I can train for several hours a day and I did not too lazy to do it. I just read some interesting books, newspapers, important information or news on a tablet. And you know what the most important thing? In just one month of my eyesight has improved and now I see the first 8 lines in Snellen Eye Chart!

Step 3: Materials Used:

1. board or plywood 0.5 x 2.5 feet

2. motor with gear 1 rpm 12 volts

3. aluminum rails 2.5 feet 2 pcs.

4. aluminum tape for lever 1 foot

5. any 12 volt adapter

6. a piece of acrylic or plywood 0.5 x 0.5 feet
7. bookend

8. an interesting book!

This motor runs quietly and does not interfere with reading. You can apply for a smaller voltage and reduce speed, but for me this was the optimal speed.
As you can see, on the levers have several holes. Because of this I can change the length of the lever and the amplitude of movement of the book. At first I could only read at an amplitude displacement of 0.5 feet. Gradually, it became easier to read and I increase the amplitude. A month later, I can easily read at an amplitude of 1.5 feet. My eyesight has improved significantly and it just happens, without long and tedious training.

Dad, thank you very much!

    Hi Shenzen,

    what a truely inspiring idea! I ordered the motor (it's 12v 2rpm, but I found a 6V 1rpm and powered it with an old left-over 5V USB charger) and am currently building the "machine". The white plastic guides are easy to make, no problem. But what did you use the "alloy tape for lever 1 foot" for that you mentioned in your list of materials?

    Fantastic idea, either way! Look forward getting my old eyesight back!

    Did you ever figure out what he used for the arms/levers?

    I used leftover aluminium rods. You can find aluminium stripes that work at your local hardware/DIY store.

    This is a brilliant idea! I can't wait to make this!!

    Please tell me if you have any other exciting projects you are going to work on!


    So while you are reading the book constantly moves close to your eyes then farther away. So your eyes are changing focus over and over, giving them a workout. This is actually a brilliant idea. I wonder if I can make my entire computer monitor do this.

    You could leave monitor on the table, and move your chair instead :)
