Splashing water over the eyes:
Splash cold water over the closed eyes three or four times a day. Ice cold water from a refrigerator will also serve the purpose. Splash water over the eyes while washing the face in the morning, before taking meals in the , in the evening and at bedtime.
Fill your mouth with enough water, do not drink it. Now close your eyes and start splashing water over your closed eyes 8-10 times from a distance of 4-5 inches. Try not to wipe off the water on the face. Let it dry on its own.
Washing the feet with cold water:
Wash your feet with cold water twice a day and especially at night before going to bed. Start rubbing your feet over the wet tiles in the bathroom for 1-2 minutes and while rubbing, go on pouring cold water over them. This practice induces sound sleep and sound sleep assures good eyesight.
Massaging the soles of your feet with cow’s ghee or pure castor oil also is said to have a good effect on the eyes through the feet.
Wash the eyes with cold water or Triphala water or weak saline water at least twice a day, in the morning and at bed-time.
Fill the eye-wash cups with water up to their brims. Keep them straight, bend your head and dip the eyes in the water. Blink gently in the water. The eyes can be washed in a small bowl also. Wash the eyes for about 3 minutes.
