All the eye-specialists of the world believe that there is no cure for refractive errors such as myopia and hypermetropia and that there are no effective preventive measures.
Even today, in the days of advanced science, what some ophthalmologists wrote two hundred years ago about the incurability of visual defects is still considered a law. We are so greatly hypnotized by the firm statements of the old authorities that we do not care to undertake any experimentation or research on the subject. If anyone comes forward to demonstrate that visual defects can be improved without glasses, we doubt and reject his explanation.
Now a day, we find that the mind of man is under several strain. Hence, all types of visual defect are occurring.
To correct visual defects glasses are prescribed. It is a fact that glasses help to relieve headaches and watering of eyes and enable people to see both distant and nearby objects clearly. Their use in many cases in imperative. But it is also true that glasses do not check further deterioration and that the power of glasses required continues to increase. We sometimes find that fast deterioration of eyesight and the development of some serious complications are not prevented by wearing glasses. Therefore, these types of defects are increasing among the educated classes in spite of present medical advancement.
We would like to point out here that mental relaxation is the key to success in improving eyesight. The school for perfect Eyesight, Pondicherry-2 is trying to give proper eye-education and mental relaxation to correct visual defects.
For relaxation of mind and eyes a few exercises are shown here. The results are very encouraging.
