You will be amazed to know that there are many yoga poses that can help a person to get better eyesight naturally. In fact, medical sciences have proven that there are many eye disorders which are related to the malfunctioning of the ocular muscles. These are caused by chronic mental and emotional tensions, and practicing yoga techniques can help the person get rid of these conditions.
In this post we are going to talk about some of the ways in which yoga and other simple practices that you can carry out at home can help you get better eyesight naturally. So let us take a look at them –
While it might sound something obvious that we all do, according to yoga controlled blinking can improve the vision of a person to quite a large extent. Here is a look at how to do it –

The second we are going to talk about here is controlled viewing. Here is how to practice it –
– Keep your legs straight in front of the body.
– Place the left fist on the left knee with thumb pointing upwards.

– Close the eyes and rest for a while.
