We all have heard of the healing properties of Yoga and how it works wonders for our overall well-being. But Yoga for improving eyesight? Yes, it’s true! Yoga can effectively help you manage your eye-sight problems.

However, these days, with even children confined to the desk, TV, or media (computer, electronic games) that involves only a confined strain by the eyes the muscles within the eye socket are not worked out.

If you already have eye problems when you begin these exercises, you will find your eyesight improving after a few months. Any eye tension present will tend to produce a general feeling of tension, due to the eye’s connection to the brain via the optic nerve. What happens is that eye tension produces an increase in the nerve impulses in the eye muscles. This increase in nerve impulses travels along the optic nerve and bombards the brain, causing a general feeling of tension and anxiety. The eye exercises will reduce tension in the eye muscles, as well as reduce general tension.

Raise your eyes and find a small point that you can see clearly without straining, without frowning, without becoming tense and, of course, without moving your head. While doing this exercise look at this point each time you raise your eyes. Next, lower your eyes to find a small point on the floor which you can see clearly when glancing down.

It soothes eyes strained by an effort to see. Also, keeping the eyes in a dark, soothing mode creates a healing impact by tweaking the master glands, like pineal gland, which reacts to excessive exposure to light or artificial lighting by hitting sleep etc. In yogic eye exercises palming is seen as the most important of healing exercises.
