Yoga for your Eyes – Exercises to Improve Your Vision

Exercising your body makes it stronger. So can exercising your eyes make your vision stronger, too? The need for glasses is based on the shape of the eye, the size of the pupil, and the ability to shift focus, which declines as we age. However, there are those who swear eye conditions are related to faulty ocular muscles caused by chronic mental and emotional tension. Yoga-like exercises can help improve the condition of eye muscles and even help  improve disorders such as myopia and hypermetropia.

Practicing these eye exercises regularly for a few months could help improve functioning of our eyes.
