Caring for the eyes is part of Dinacharya, the daily routines of cleansing the 5 sense organs. Heres how to care for the eyes, the Ayurveda way. Ayurveda recognizes that eyes are related to the fire element. The fire element tends to dry and also heat everything up. So it’s important to learn how to cool down the eyes and prevent them from drying out. Daily care of the eyes helps improve eye sight, reduce strain, improve perception and observation and keep the pitta calm. It also helps relieve headaches due to pitta (excess heat in the body) and nourish the nervous system through the close connection between eyeballs and the brain. It is also especially good for those who spend long hours on the computer.
