"Finally it is Faith that cures.

School for Perfect Eyesight, Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Pondicherry, is
a ray of hope to those suffering from visual defects. The patients
have to undergo treatment for a week and follow it up through simple
exercises taught in the School. Although the treatment is free, one
may contribute according to his will. The beneficiaries are in
the age group 7-40. Strain seems to be the chief cause for refractive
errors. The School intends to popularize relaxation as an important
and vital part of preventing visual defects. Misuse of the eyes while
reading, sewing, watching films, has been the cause of the strain
in the eyes and headaches. Relaxing exercises might reduce the need
for glasses. While glasses help to correct eye defects to some extent
and offer relief from headaches and watering of eyes, they do not
check deterioration. The power of glasses continues to increase. There
are a number of relaxing exercises, taught here to improve the sight.
One has to come here to learn them under proper supervision to get
the maximum benefit.
