comment Can being hit with a tennis ball on the eye lead to pain in the ear and head?
See an eye doctor (an ophthalmologist) sooner than later as eye injuries need expert care. See the orbital socket for a better understanding.

comment What is an ideal visceral fat percentage?
When you say your 8% body fat percentage "needs improving", what is your goal? Under 8% could be considered "underfat" , but 8% is in the healthy range for young men or athletes. As to your visceral fat percentage, do you know how the trainer determined this percentage? Visceral fat, also known as omentum, is harmful to your health so less is better.

comment Stretches for long periods of sitting
You should find helpful information in this back injury prevention q/a and this sitting posture q/a including stretching, strengthening, and postural exercises. As previously pointed out flexibility is only part of the answer. Strengthening for stability, stretching for flexibility, and proper postural alignment are all important to having a balanced spine and pelvis.
