    [...Eye-Strain During Sleep

    Many people complain that when they first wake up in the morning, they
    are tired, that they have headaches, and that their sight is very
    imperfect. Later on in the day their eyes feel better, and the vision
    may become normal.

    I have examined with the Ophthalmoscope the eyes of many people during
    sleep and found much to my surprise, that most people strain much more
    in their sleep than they ever do when they are awake. Of course,
    people when unconscious of their acts during sleep, are not aware of
    this eye-strain.

    The prevention of eye-strain during sleep in usually a very difficult
    matter. Some cases are benefited just before retiring by palming for
    one-half hour or longer, or until they go to sleep while palming.
    Others by practicing the long swing for fifteen minutes, have found
    that the eye-strain becomes less. In some serious cases with imperfect
    sight, when the eye-strain is not prevented by palming or the swing,
    they are often materially benefited by shortening their hours of sleep
    with the help of an alarm clock. One patient had the alarm set for 3
    a.m. He would then get out of bed and practice the long swing,
    alternating with palming for an hour or longer with the result that he
    slept the rest of the night very comfortably, and awoke the next
    morning with little or no evidence of eye-strain during sleep.

    Some people have told me that they have lessened their eye-strain
    during sleep materially, by moderate muscular exercises for one-half
    hour or longer. They find that they obtain the best results when the
    exercise is continued, sufficiently long to produce muscular
    fatigue. ...]
