Ayurveda and Yoga for Eyesight Improvement
According to Ayurveda, the doshas (Vata, Pitta, Kapha) are further divided into sub-doshas and vision is governed by Alochaka Pitta (a sub-dosha of Pitta dosha). Pitta is a combination of Fire+Water and absorbs different images, colours and processes visual images. At subtle level Pitta gives clarity, light and understanding. Excessive use of smart phone can cause your eyesight to deteriorate thereby creating imbalance in Pitta dosha and affecting your eyesight as well as sleep. When Vata is aggravated it can lead to dryness thereby causing optic nerves to “dry up” causing dry eyes.
Both Yoga and Ayurveda have proven eye-exercise techniques called Trataka to balance the doshas thereby improving eye sight and eye condition.
