ON TAKING CARE OF OUR EYES

We always look at life according to how we
appreciate it through the sense of sight.  We get educated through seeing
and reading, through viewing and witnessing.  We even would ignore
feelings as in dispensing that which we have touched or that which came to us
through our skin, evade whatever it is that we get a whiff of and
disregard whatever it is that we heard.  It is always that which we
appreciate through seeing that we believe.  As the saying goes, “to see is
to believe.”  Our eyesight therefore is not only a significant part of our
life not only because we value the world according to how we see it but we depend
largely on how we behave according to the light that we get through the
spectacle of our visual acuity.  Even if it is illusory or mere illusion.

The significance of sight

We can therefore sacrifice all other senses and
proceed with learning instead through our eye sight.  But have we provided
our eyes the necessary care it is entitled to?  Or, we merely overlook
because it is not even begging for it.

First, we must treat our eyes in the kindest way
possible.  How?  Every morning, if the sun is peeping from the horizon,
say around 6AM (in the Philippines; I don’t know how it is in other countries
though), face the morning sun, eyes closed but focused on the budding
light.  Rotate the head to the right slowly, and then to the left, pausing
for a few seconds in the middle.  Make a deep breath, inhaling through the
nose and exhaling through the mouth.  This should be conducted until one
feels the warmth of the sun on one’s face.  Then bow and slowly open the
eyes.  One gets immediately the impression that the colors around are full
and bursting with beautiful spectral display.  This is one exercise which
the eye needs.  It is its food and nourishment.

Second, we must eat nutritious food.  Well,
not necessarily the greens and yellow vegetables like those our elementary
teachers would prod us in our science class but it helps.  The point is,
we must eat and never allow our emotions to get past our appetite. 
Whether we eat heartily or not does not matter.  What is important is that
we eat something to stay hunger and it makes our eyes healthy as a result.

Third, practice eye movement.  One can do this
by reading.  It is not only healthy to the nerves but also advantageous to
the brain.  But read if there is a proper lighting only. Avoid glare
because it strains the eye and worst may contribute to the formation of
cataracts.  Sandy and dusty surroundings are also contributory not only to
respiratory ailments but also on the linings of the eye.  It is not only
in terms of vanity that one uses shades, it is always a must when moving around
on daytime.

A special science for the eye

There is a new science where a practitioner merely
looks at the eye and he knows already what ails the person.  It is called
iridology.

Iridology
is what many have called the combination of “science and art” of microscopic
analysis of the iris and the dynamics of the pupil. Many consider iridology a
“fringe” practice, but it has enormous potential when practiced correctly. The
iris and inner pupillary border are the visible aspects of the autonomic and
central nervous systems that we have.

In
Iridology structural markings in the iris and eye colors (pigments) carry both
personal and genetic significance. The color of the iris illustrates certain
genetic and constitutional traits. Some signs are important for what they look
like, some markers are important for where they are – the iris can be a
projection of a map of the body and its various systems, as in Reflexology or Auriculotherapy.

One can therefore spot someone with a problem just
by looking at the person’s eyes.  There is even an adage where one that is
in love, and therefore in the right physical condition, exhibits a glow in his
eyes.  That is very true.

Eye everywhere

Security management lately has taken an upgrade
with the introduction of a close circuit television.  It can have a full
panoramic view of an angle and could be fitted with an ultra-sensitive capacity
to see even in darkness.  Penal establishments in advanced countries have
installed fully its entire camp with CCTV to manage all corners of the penal
facility.

As far as identity is concerned, a person may
change the form of his face, the nose, the mouth but it could never alter, even
in a state of advancing age, his eye.  It is the only portion of the body
that defies time, its form; its details are as individual as one’s finger
print.

No wonder, even the ancients have held sacred the eye—whatever its
manifestations were.
