Specific Eye Exercises for Convergence Insufficiency to strengthen eye muscles (similar to physiotherapy for the eyes)
Keep a pen or pencil at arms length in the line of vision between the two eyes. Slowly bring the pencil towards the nose. Focus should be on the tip of the pencil. As you bring the pencil closer, the image becomes double at one point. Stop at this point and again take the pencil away to arms length. Repeat this step.
Aim is to bring the point of convergence closer to the eyes and to maintain the single image at its last point. Try to hold the image where it is last seen as a single image. Slowly with improvement, the point of seing this image as a single image starts getting closer to the eyes.
(If you have glasses or spectacles, this exercise is done using the same)
