Yoga for Eyes-Fix Your Eye Sight Problem with Yoga Poses

Aug 31, 2019

Having a 20/20 vision is quite rare today, especially for middle-aged individuals. This is because several types of work are now done in front of a computer. On top of that, most, if not all, consider using television, iPads, tabs, laptops, cellphones and other electronic gadgets to be their tools when it comes to entertaining themselves or simply relaxing. Good thing that there is an alternative to relaxing and that is yoga.
Having an eyesight problem is not so uncommon these days. Some people deny that they have it, while others are simply unaware.
To know whether you already have an eyesight problem or not, here are a number of signs (eye sight problem symptoms) you can look out for.

  1. Frequent headaches – When you have headaches regularly, it could be a sign that you either have astigmatism or farsightedness. This is because your eyes would be working harder whether you are trying to see objects near or far from you. It causes fatigue and strain in your eyes that eventually causes headaches.
  2. Blurry eyesight – Tired, dry or strained eyes can cause brief or sudden blurry vision. Having blurry vision is one of the most common symptoms of nearsightedness or farsightedness. Keep in mind though that blurring is not just a sign of an eyesight problem. If it becomes persistent you have to schedule an appointment with your doctor as soon as you can since it could be something else like a stroke or a detachment of the retina.
  3. Squinting – This is a common practice whenever a person attempts to clear his or her vision. When you squint, it actually reduces the amount of light that enter your eyes which in turn would result in reducing the size of the blurry image. When you do it excessively though, it could indicate that you have either hyperopia or myopia.
  4. Eye rubbing – When you rub your eyes frequently, it may be a sign that you have an eyesight problem since this practice is an indication that you have tired or strained eyes. This could also mean that you have conjunctivitis, allergies or dry eyes.
  5. Difficult night vision – Turning more lights or lamps inside your room to see clearly or you simply could not see as clear as before in dimly lit environments is an indication that your eyes are not as capable to adjusting to darkness as before. This is a sign that you have a vision problem and it is wise to see your eye doctor soon.

It is a good thing that there are lots of options when it comes to solving an eye sight problems. One that is becoming more popular today is the practice of yoga.
Yoga is being used by millions of people around the globe these days because of the countless benefits it offers. Many are doing it in order to relieve stress and improve their overall wellbeing. Some people though are not aware that certain yoga poses and exercises are actually beneficial to the eyesight and could even provide a solution to an eyesight problem.

Here are some of the benefits you can derive from yoga when it comes to your eyes.

  • Yoga provides relief from both eye strain and dry eyes.
  • It improves concentration and focus.
  • Relaxes the eyes from a day’s work, providing better vision after.

  • Calms the mind.

Always remember that there are other benefits you can enjoy from Yoga, aside from improving your vision. To get you started, here are 3 Best Yoga exercises for eyes that you can perform at your place.

Palming
Have you seen the old Karate Kid movies? If you did, then you are familiar with palming. This is actually done simply by rubbing both your palms together until you feel that they are already warm. Once you achieve that, place your palms on your eyes. While doing this, close your eyes and think about something that can help you relax. If you like binaural sounds, you can make use of it while doing palming so you can have a more soothing experience. Palming creates an energy that when placed on your eyes, it would bring comfort and remove eyestrain. Remove your palms from your eyes once they are no longer warm. You can repeat the exercise three times and it is best if you practice it regularly.


Blinking
Some people may be unaware of it but when we blink, its purpose is actually to give our eyes a moment to relax. If you are focusing on your work, you may not be able to blink as often as you need to. Studies show that your eyes should blink around 25 times in a minute. To perform this yoga exercise, find a comfortable place to sit and blink your eyes 10 times in a quick manner. After which, you should close them for 20 seconds to relax. Pay attention to your breathing while doing this. Do the exercise again for 5 times, so that your eyes would be relaxed and thus prevent eye dryness.

Viewing sideways
This yoga exercise is said to help by stretching the eye muscles. To get started, sit in a comfortable chair and simply move your eyes from one side to another. After doing that, you should also move it around like following a circle. This can also be done by looking at an object. For example, you can watch your left and right thumbs which you can situate in a way that it would make you move your eyes from left to right. You can also move one of your fingers around so you can follow it. Focus on moving your eyes only, without the help of your neck. Practice these 20 times to enjoy its benefits.
Performing these 3 yoga eye exercises regularly proves that you are making an effort to improve your vision and solve an eyesight problem. Visit your ophthalmologist so he can also provide you with professional assistance. Don’t limit yourself to just these 3 yoga exercises for your eye vision. Once you have become accustomed to them, check out other routines (yoga routine) and enjoy.
