Eye health is probably one of the most neglected sectors of healthcare; the World Health Organisation states that around 1 billion people in the world have an eyesight problem which can be prevented or treated efficiently. In order to draw attention towards blindness and vision impairment, the second Thursday of October is observed as World Sight Day annually. This year, it falls on the 8th of October 2020 and the theme is ‘Hope In Sight’. While noticing symptoms and getting a correct diagnosis is essential for eye health, we can all agree that prevention is better than cure. Other than eating well and reducing screen-time, you can also do a few exercises that can help keep your eyes healthy:
2. Sideways viewing
3. Preliminary Nasikagra Drishti (preliminary nose tip gazing)
4. Near and distant viewing
