Out of all my body parts, I feel like my eyes are in the best shape. I must do at least a thousand eye rolls a day!
Now that spring is here, did you know the most active muscle group in your body are your eye muscles? The external muscles that move the eyes are the strongest muscles in the human body for the job that they have to do. They are 100 times powerful than they need to be. The eye muscle is the fastest reacting muscle of the whole body, contracting in less than 1/100th of a second. In fact, the eye muscles work together to carry out no less than seven coordinated movements and allow the eye to track many different kinds of moving object.
If your eye muscles or your eyes in general, don’t seem in shape and ready for spring, schedule an eye exam with one of our Optometrists and let’s get you ready for summer!
