I am catching up with posting online my articles.
This is the continuation of the previous article:
So the next possible cause of the problem with the eyesight could be stress and tension. But I am not talking here about the stress at work etc. I rather talk about the stress and tension in the eye itself. Of course the stress at work may "provoke" stress in the eyes but it is important to differentiate these 2 things.
Thus I have noticed in my practice that people tend to maintain constant tension in the muscles. We talk a lot about the stress in the shoulders ( trapezius muscles ) but these tension could be in any part of the body. It could be in the stomach, leg, jaws and the also in the muscles of the eyes.
You'll see... the tension is there but because it is there all the time thus you get used to it and you become in a sense not aware of it. Obviously this tension over time will provoke symptoms of pain in the neck, shoulder etc. and you will go to the doctor or other therapist ( massage, physio etc. ) to treat these symptoms but within this you miss ( most of the time ) this point of constant tension in the muscles.
And so this scenario may also happen in the eyes. The eye muscles can also be under constant stress ( tension ), which you maintain not being aware of it and at some point you will complain about the pain ( could be around the eye or headache ), your eyesight will get worse and you will go to the optometrists to give you a pair of glasses. Of course you will feel better but unfortunately this is nothing else but treating the symptoms. And with treating the symptoms it is always the same - sooner or later they come back and they are stronger.
I do not want to say this is always happening the way I describe it but still this point is very common and it is missed by people as well as the doctors and optometrists.
