3 Ways Yoga Improves Eye Function

Yoga is an astonishing, natural way to improve your eye’s health and preventing them from going bad or to ease complications that already exist. The following are three ways to perform it.

1. Helps relax eye muscles

The muscles that control the different motions of your eye are the most hardworking muscles of the entire body. Hence, they can get stressed very easily.

When your eyes get stressed up, you will likewise feel the effect, as the function of the eye takes up about 40 percent of the brain’s activities and 4 whole cranial nerves (with two more in assistance) out of the 12 cranial nerves.

In fact, one of the main reasons why people get stressed is because their eyes are stressed, that is why to relax you must often close your eyes either by sleeping or by meditating or concentrating.

And there is no need to mention that when your eyes are stressed, their function also reduces dramatically. But regular yoga practice helps to relax these muscles and hence, maintain eye performance in addition to relaxing your whole being as well.

2. Strengthens eye muscles

Because the muscles responsible for the movement of your eyes are the most overworked muscles in the body, they can quickly become weak and start to fail. And this, among other things is one of the key causes for age-related eye issues, where a man in his youth will have a very sharp vision but will need to start wearing glasses when he is much older, mostly because the muscles that control the eyes are weak.

3. Relax your mind

Because the eyes take up a huge chunk of the function of the brain and hence is the major factor for it being stressed, when yoga exercises relax the eyes, thereby relaxing the brain which in turn helps the brain to properly interpret information from the eyes, leading to an improvement of your vision and preventing hallucinations and false eye sightings (things you think you saw that you did not).
