The School for Perfect Eye-sight in Pondicherry

The School for Perfect Eyesight, Pondicherry

The School for Perfect Eyesight, Pondicherry

Two pieces of lenses, held together and perched upon our nose bridge, stretching and tucking their legs to the back of our ears – an inconvenience we’ve got so convenient with. When someone questioned this inconvenience, we came up with another one – made the lenses sit right inside our eyes! And also came up with those nerve burning and purse shrinking lasik surgeries. But how much are we getting to the root of the problem?


We need to stop treating the symptoms and cure our eyes. And there is such a solution. We could actually get our power reduced, help our eyes see better, strain lesser, and even do away with those lenses forever. Pack your bags to Pondicherry – one week of relaxation and eye exercises at the School for Perfect Eyesight will do a world of good to your eyes.

At the School for Perfect Eyesight, an initiative of the Aurobindo Ashram at Pondicherry, you will get an eye opener into rebuilding your vision. The first biggest revelation will be that most of us do not know how to use our eyes. We who sit in front of our computers simply do not blink our eyes and we stare at the monitor. We don’t realize how much we strain our eyes while even reading let alone while watching a movie. Result – headaches, swollen eyes, red eyes, refractive errors and deterioration of vision. The School takes care of all such factors that stop us from having perfect eyesight throughout our life.

The School for Perfect Eyesight was started in 1968 by Dr. R S Agarwal, an expert and a believer in the power of the Bates Method. This Method, an alternative therapy that helps in improving eyesight, is no rocket science. It uses simple relaxation techniques that will rejuvenate our eyes naturally. The experts at the School put you through a series of exercises – sun treatment, palming, ball exercises, candle light reading, eye massage and so on for a week. These are exercises that can be practiced at home or at your office desk, after the treatment without any hassles. Mind you, no television or computer during this entire week J. When you review your vision by the end of the treatment, you’ll be happy that you chose to go down to Pondy. Wonder if it is really works, trust me, it has worked for me and my husband too. Our power reduced and it was such an amazing feeling to see that your eyes have gotten better naturally.

The School gets around 3000 patients every year starting from the age of 7. Many people who have lost hope in saving their vision have found solace here. But the School does not intend to trumpet its achievements nor does it promise miracles. They do not undertake any marketing efforts to popularize the School either. Most importantly, the service is completely free of cost! When asked why it is so, Santhosh, one of the experts at the School, said; ‘’most people who come to us are coming to the School as their last resort after many disappointments outside. We do not want to burden them with the thought of money. Our happiness comes when we see that our treatment has made a difference to their lives’’.


Thinking you’ll have to spend a bomb on accommodation in a tourist place like Pondy? Chill. The Aurobindo Ashram gives you accommodation for your stay to take the treatment at a cost as low as a Rs. 160 per day. All you need to do is book in advance, both at the School and at the Ashram Guest houses.

The School is doing such a novel service, especially for children who have to bear the burden of glasses at a really young age. When the correction is done at early childhood, there’s hardly any need to worry about eyesight for the rest of the life. It would be great if we could introduce this practice in our schools. So here’s a gift that we have been unaware of – don’t you want to make this trip that’ll be worth all the effort?
