"Finally it is Faith that cures.


(9 August 1969, CWM 15:172)

The 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.
