School of Perfect Eyesight

Improving eyesight by Yoga
In October 2000 I travelled to Pondicherry, on the South East Coast of India for a course on eyesight improvement (i.e. myopia reduction). This school is one of the few schools that prescribe to the Bates Method for improvement in eyesight, in India. Having just completed a two week course, I returned to London to have my eyes tested and my sight improved from -2.75/-3.00 to –2.25, both eyes, and I was amazed at the result. I continue to do some of the exercises when I get the time, and do not wear glasses/lenses except for driving/sport. My eyes are generally less tired and feel much more relaxed then before. The school is straightforward, there is no useless babble - you just get on with the exercises with people at hand to give assistance and to make sure you do the exercise “properly”. The environment is well organised with around 10-20 students doing the exercises at any one time.
The specialists are professional and you can see that they have worked on 1000’s of cases. The school itself has been running since 1968, so any doubt from your mind erases the minute you walk into the school. The course is completely FREE - you can make an anonymous donation if you wish, in a discreetly placed box.The Exercise ProcessThe exercises are taking an hour, and after an initial check up you walk into the center and carry out the exercises. You are not supposed to wear glasses or watch television during the duration of the course. During the exercises there is relaxing light music playing in the background. These are some of the exercised that I did
Sun Gazing with eyes closed
Palming: Covering your eyes with a cupped palm of your hand.
Reading small print (normal light and candlelight):
Playing with a tennis ball: Moving ball from hand to hand and blinking, and bouncing ball from hand to hand and blinking
Imagination exercises with an eye chart.
Vapour Treatment: Hot vapour is released to your closed eyes for 30 seconds.
Eye Swab: Two cold eye swabs for 10 minutes.
After the first few days you will be called to do special exercised based on imagination, and small print reading – the “optician” will call you into his/her office especially for this.
