YOGA FOR EYES - It worked for me, if you do it for a few days you can feel the change.

Many of the yogic poses/asana and exercises are aimed at improving the functioning of specific organs of the body.Yoga provides a series of eye exercises that improves the functioning of the eyes and helps to overcome various eye-related problems, such as

Myopia or short sightednessHypermetropia or long sightednessVarious other eye-related disorders

1) Palming

Sit quietly with eyes closed and take some deep breaths to relax yourself completely.Rub the palms of your hands vigorously, until they become warm and place the palms gently over your eye lids.Feel the warmth of the palms being transferred onto the eyes and the eye muscles relaxing. Your eyes are being bathed in soothing darkness.Stay in this position until the heat from the hands has been completely absorbed by the eyes.Keeping the eyes closed, lower the handsOnce again rub the palms and repeat the process at least three times

I suffer from the similar kind of problem, I have -0.75D eye lens for both eyes. I also wish to eradicate myopia.

Ok so now coming to your answer


In the morning and evening when you drink milk mix it with powder constituting of almonds, fennel seeds and white rock sugar, this mixture is very beneficial for curing myopia.

2. Bates method- Simply phenomenal, helps a lot( my personal review)

3. Roll the eyeball in clockwise and anticlockwise directions for 5 minutes each rotation.

4. Always wear your spectacles or eye lenses.

5. Eat healthy food such as carrot to enhance your eyesight.

6. Take shorts naps so that you eyes get some rest and do not get over strained.


Reduce the time you spend on electronic devices. Specially during the night say a big NO to these electronic devices and I suggest you to switch off your phones during night.Do not believe in people who make false claims for curing your myopia with medicines. Myopia can either by cured by surgery or by natural methods provided above.

-1.5D power won't be easy to eradicate but I believe that if you try and follow the right steps and be patient you'll soon accomplish your goal. Also get your eye checkup done every 6 months.

I wrote an article about this recently, here is the extract:

"Lately I have become more aware of people jumping on the band wagon that claims to offer “perfect” vision no less, without the need of any visual aid or surgical intervention. Many of these people have no medical training or understanding of the science of seeing. You may well have come across some of these claims yourself or know someone who has. So is it all a big fat con? Where does it all stem from? Why hasn’t my optometrist ever mentioned it to me?

They’re all great questions.  I can tell you that much of this teaching comes from the work of Dr William Horatio Bates an 18th century ophthalmologist who developed alternative therapies that claimed to restore perfect sight naturally through the ‘Bates Method’ as it became known. He developed research culminating in the publication of his book titled Perfect Sight Without Glasses in 1920, and the magazine Better Eyesight from 1919 to 1930. Dr Bates made many claims that isolated him from the eye care and medical profession of those days. Some of the most extreme and later disproved claims were removed in the abridged version of the book called Better (No longer Perfect) Eyesight Without Glasses published in 1943. His central principal is based on the claim that all sight problem is due to strained eyes and that the external muscles that move the eyes are also essential for focusing. Theories that were dismissed in his time and would not be entertained by most eye care professionals today.

The Bates Method, which is based on exercises for the eyes to ease eye strain, have gained some following and may be enjoying somewhat of a renaissance again as some seek ways to make money from reselling his works and methods.
Okay so I appear to be taking a skeptical undertone to his work, yet some people claim measurable (if not perfect) success from the Bates Method. Well I’m pleased to say that I have a copy of his Perfect Sight Without Glasses document, which I hope to read and blog a breakdown of the work, from an optometrists point of view. I’ve heard it said by proponents of the Bates Method that optometrists don’t want their patients to know about how they can get rid of their glasses through natural methods because they’d be out of business. On the contrary, I think it would have developed a whole new clinical role for us (had it proved to be a genuine therapy all those years ago), with the profession leading the way in the administration of these therapies. Had that been the case however, the cost of seeing your optometrist would probably be in line with the cost of consulting a lawyer…"
