Yoga Eye Exercises

When I was 15 and sitting my GCSE O Levels I did so much revision that my eyes suffered and everyone said I needed glasses.  I got the glasses and wore them for several years.  One day I went to the library (this is before the internet) and I came across a book which told me that your eyes were a muscle and just like any other muscle in your body can be strained and put under pressure.  If you had strained a muscle in your leg would you walk round on crutches for the rest of your life? The answer is an overwhelming no.  You would strengthen your muscles.  Obviously the opticians do not want you to know this or they would be out of business!  Anyway I went home and did these eye exercises religiously everyday.  About a year later I completely stopped wearing my glasses.  I'm now 50 and have not had to wear glasses since I was 23.  Amazing isn't it!

Ive found the exact same eye exercises that I used.  I wanted to pass the information onto you in the hope that it will inspire someone else to get control of their sight.

The first exercise begins with the eyelids open, the head and neck still, and the entire body relaxed. Picture a clock face in front of you, and raise your eyeballs up to 12 o'clock. Hold them there for a second, then lower the eyeballs to six o'clock. Hold them there again. Continue moving the eyeballs up and down 10 times, without blinking if possible. Your gaze should be steady and relaxed. Once you finish these 10 movements, place a Lavender Eye Pillow gently over your eyes. Allow the eyes to relax in complete darkness.

Follow this exercise with horizontal eye movements—from nine o'clock to three o'clock—ending again by placing a Lavender Eye Pillow over your eyes. Then do diagonal movements—two o'clock to seven o'clock, and 11 o'clock to four o'clock


Conclude the routine with 10 full circles in each direction, as though you are tracing the clock's rim.
