Self-Healing Exercises for Weak Eyes by William A. Tiller, PhD In the early 1970’s, I began to wear glasses for reading and for driving my car and I didn’t like the inconvenience. About the same time, an MD friend told me about an experiment conducted in China on children with vision problems who needed to wear strong glasses to see and read effectively. They were told to massage certain acupuncture points around the eyes as these relaxed the tensions in the eye muscles. After a few months of doing these exercises daily, most of the children were able to see and read well without using their glasses. This sounded like something I could check out by trying it on myself.
#1, situated at the inner edge of the eyebrow (a bladder meridian point).
#2, situated at the inner corner of the eye (the start point of the bladder meridian).
#3, situated about 0.5 inches below the center of the eye (the start point of the stomach meridian).
#4, situated about 0.25 inches beyond the outer corner of the eye (the start point of the gall bladder meridian).
#5, situated about 0.25 inches beyond the outer edge of the eyebrow (the end point of the triple warmer meridian).
#6, situated about 0.5 inches above the center of the eyebrow (a point of the gall bladder meridian).
My steps in this personal experiment were as follows:
A. With light to medium pressure, starting with point #1 on each eyebrow, massage in a clockwise/counter clockwise direction for 9, 18 or 27 rotations and then do likewise in the opposite direction for the same number of rotations.
B. Do the same procedure for points #2, #3, #4, #5 and #6 in sequence.
C. Then, placing two finger tips touching the bridge of the nose between the eyebrows, run the finger tips in opposite directions at moderate pressure out along the eye brows in a rotary motion around the eye and up the outer nostrils back to the starting point. Do this 9, 18 or 27 times. This should feel very good!
I did this, and still do this several decades later, every morning for about 5 to 10 minutes. Within about two months of starting the exercise, I no longer needed to wear glasses for either reading or driving. That was over 40 years ago and I still have excellent vision (although now that such small print is being used for newspapers, I now use 1.5 times drugstore magnifiers f for easy reading).
