Eye the Prime Organ:
Eye exercises are beneficial for better sightedness. The eyes are sensory organs; what we see is the mind’s interpretation of an image received by the retina. If the reason is in a high state, the vision will be affected, so sight depends on the mind. According to Yoga, there were external and internal eyes. The outer eyes see what is happing before you; the internal eyes look into the inner recesses of the body. The fierce eyes receive and transmit the image to the brain’s visual centre. The site is dependent on five factors. They are the objects, the organs of view, the sensory function and the interior spirit.
Causes of Not Proper function of the eyes:
While reading or writing, only a few people know to keep the book at the correct distance to hold. Some are not blinking their eyes properly during a full-page reading. This causes the eyes to faint and starts headaches or migraines. So one should blink at least for every line and maintain the distance between the book and eyes.
Blinking the Eyes:
If we maintain to hold the book at a perfect distance, we can see the letters clearly without any effort to see them. The average length for the younger is ten to twelve inches, and do not forget to blink five to ten times a minute. One should follow the instructions; then, the eyes are relaxed.
Not correctly using the eyes:
Some people follow the habit of writing and reading at the same time. This causes the eyelids to move quickly between reading and writing matter. Try to avoid this thing. Some stared at the objects without blinking or even rolling their eyes. Moving the eyes gently and blinking lightly is essential to prevent much strain.
Over Use, no Relax:
They were staring long and short distances without relaxing or blinking. Some people read books and watch television for hours and hours without a break. This puts a lot of strain on the eyes. Some people make their eyes wide and look at long-distanced objects. And some read books not maintaining the perfect distances; these acts caused a lot of strain on the eyes. These are also caused by prolonged and short-sightedness.
How to Relax the Eyes:
According to Yoga, you are exhaling and Inhaling cause the nerves of the eyes to relax. Sit properly and gently close the eyes and cover the eyes with your palms hand and allow the heat from the palms to penetrate the eyeballs. When you are doing this, protect the eyes entirely from light. Keep the neck and spinal column in an upright position. Do gently inhale and exhale the breath. Stay for some time, remove your palms from the eyes and slowly open the eyes. This causes sharpened eye vision.
The practice should follow the Viparitakarani (inverted) posture, the Padmasana position, or the crossed-leg position for eye exercises.
First Exercise: Sit in the Padmasana position, calm your mind, and look straight for a few seconds. Now Inhale the breath while turning your eyes right and return to the starting position while exhaling. Again inhale the breath while raising the eyes upwards, and bring them downwards while exhaling. Repeat this exercise 3 to 4 times; later, sit for a few minutes in a relaxed mood by closing your eyes.
Second Exercise: Sit in the padmasana position and roll your eyes in a circle. While inhaling, turn the eyes right; while exhaling, turn the eyes left.
Third Exercise: Sit in the position of Padmasana and look straight forward. Now inhale the breath, open the eyes as wide as possible, and exhale by clenching the eyelids.
How to get the Sharp Sightedness:
Keep five black dots on a white disc and hang it on a wall; stand three feet from the disc. Now, look at the middle black dot for a while. Do like this three or four times without your eyes straining. Now look at the correct drop for a few seconds and return to the middle for a few seconds. Again, gaze at the left bubble for a few seconds, then look at the top drop land and return to the centre again again again. Again stare at the bottom dot for a few seconds and return to the middle fall. Repeat this two times. Your sight sharpness will increase.
