Yoga to Improve and Correct Eyesight : Yoga for Eyes

The value of correct eyesight is often understood when you face some problem with your eyesight or get spectacles to correct the focus. But still if you wake up on time then you can improve and correct your eyesight with the help of Yoga and balanced diet. Now a days  both kids and adults face issues with incorrect focus as both deal with increased on-screen time. Most of the time it occurs due to overuse of muscles in our face and eyes. Eyesight can be corrected by performing some yoga exercises to reduce the tension in these muscles. Here we have made a list of some yoga for eyes which can help in improving and correcting the eyesight.

Yoga to Improve and Correct Eyesight

Muscles in our eyes are eight time more stronger than necessary capacity. So we don't need to exercise them to strengthen them, but to stretch them, relax them and fine-tune them. All of these objectives are fully covered in yoga exercises. Yoga is not just something for our body, but for our mind and soul as well. Someone said "How you see is how you think", and this objective can be achieved through yoga, as yoga not just helps in improving your vision but also your mind and soul.

Yoga for Eyes


  • Blinking Yoga: Make your eyes wide-open and then blink them ten times very fast. Then close them for 20 seconds. Repeat this yoga for four times.
  • Palms on Eyes: This is a very simple yoga, just rub your palm till they become warm. Then put them on your closed eyes till they feel warm. This yoga gives a lot of relaxation and warmth to eye muscles.
  • Eye Rotation: In the beginning move your eyes from left to right and right to left for a few times. Then rotate them in a circular way. If you feel it hard to rotate it in a circle then rotate your finger in a circular way and look at it. Make sure that you don't move your neck while doing so. There is one more way to do the same yoga while sitting in a room. Move your sight among the four extremes, upper left, upper right, lower right and lower left.
  • Shoulder Stand (Sarvangna Asana): In this yoga you need to lie flat on your back and then lift your legs, waist and stomach upwards till your body become perpendicular to floor. In this pose your body will stand on your neck and shoulder with arms giving help to keep the body lifted upwards. In this pose blood flows towards eyes, optic nerve and brain.
  • Bee Buzzing (Bhramri Pranayam): Sit cross-legged or in a comfortable position, then place your fingers on your closed eyes in a horizontal way. Keep your lips sealed and make a bee buzzing sound while inhaling. Apply a little pressure on your eyeballs while making the buzzing sound.
  • Focus Shifting: Choose a distant and a nearby object around you and keep shifting the focus from one to other.
  • Distance Gazing: Focus your sight on a distant object around you and try to view it perfectly as if it is the only object available to look at. Concentrate on that object as if you are meditating. Do it till you feel comfortable. In the end thank the god for giving you these precious eyes to see his creations.


Our eyes are the most used external organ in our body, but we care about it the least. What we usually care about is our weight, stomach, legs, arms and hairs. But in this screen-age if we don't give enough attention to our eye-health then sooner or later we can easily face problems with our eyesight. Apart from enough sleep, a few minutes daily for our eyes is sufficient for them to stay fit for your whole life. So make these yoga for eyes, a part of your daily life and lifestyle.
