Yes, Yoga🧘 can improve your eyesight to some extent!

Indeed, Yoga exercises are one of the best ways to improve human eyesight. These exercises can overcome and reduce various eye-related problems including short and long sightedness.

Do you know many of the eye-disorders are caused due to the malfunctioning of our ocular muscles that are further caused by chronic mental and emotional tensions in our body? Yoga can also reduce the chances of occurring myopia and hypermetropia at a younger age. One more thing you can note that for Yoga exercises you don't need to dedicate your precious time. In fact, you can do these exercises at any time of the day.

One of the simplest eye exercises is Eye Blinking. Yes, you heard right and I am not joking. It'sour human tendency that we forget to blink our eyes while browsing electronic exercises for long hours. Hence, blinking our eyes can make it healthier.

However, there are a few more eye exercises that you can practice on a daily basis. Have a look at those exercises:

  • Palming
  • Eye Rolling
  • Focus Shifting
  • Sideways viewing
  • Rotational viewing

Try out these exercises and see the result on your own. To get the best result, you should try to do it in when your eyes are fresh i.e. when you wake up every day.
