I have been asked by some, as to how 9000 years ago, ancient Vedic Maharishis lives upto 200 years and wrote and did astronomy without glasses.

Well, I must first tell you something--

First look at the picture below. It shows pinhole glasses. IT is nothing by a black sheet with holes. The bunglow is my next door neighbour ( view from my back yard balcony )

You have short sighted people and long sighted people. Long sighted people can see far away, but they cant read a book-- and this is corrected by wearing glasses with convex lens--and VICE VERSA.

If you wear thick glasses and cannot read a book without your glasses, take a black piece of thick paper, make couple of holes , and try to read a book in BRIGHT light.


Throw away that sheet .

Now just squint though your eyelashes by closing your eyes and see if your eyelashes provide the same magic effect in BRIGHT light.


Well this pinhole spectacles were being used in India by normal people 11000 years ago. Maharishis who had 12 strand NIL junk DNA, and king sized pineal glands had special auras and they could read through this aura, without glasses or squinting like you and me with 2 strand 96% junk DNA and shrivelled pineal glands.

Now let us try an experiment for short sighted people . These people cannot see a TV kept at a distance without glasses. Check it out.

Each pinhole permits only a narrow beam of light to reach the eye.  The light passes only through the centre of the lens of the eye. So any defects of the eye lens won't take effect while the light is targeted in that way. Peripheral vision will be reduced , of course.

Ancient Indians made microscopes by putting a small diamond lens on a pinhole.

Diamond cutting is a very old industry in India--and you cant cut a diamond without enlarging it.

The Vedic text Ratna Pariksha deals with diamond cutting--and CRITICAL ANGLES, which you cant do with the naked eye..


For telescopes Vedic Indians used diamond lenses or even water.

Our ancient wax palace of Mahabharata of 4000 BC. had glass windows. Our Vedic Vimanas had 8 mercury containers with heat and shatter resistant resistant soda lime glass, and had portholes made of glass.

The World Univeristy of Taxila of 3000 BC with a capacity for 10500 students, from Mesopamia , Greece, Arabia, China Russia, Thailand , Syria etc -- were taught glass making from a Vedic text by the name of Shatapata Brahmana.

They magnified texts by putting clear water in a semi globes--it can be magnified further by putting a drop of clear oil ..

To check out the magnification offered by a WATER LENS-- seeing is believing, right?



  1. Hi Sir, I found this video which basically shows that Nassim haramine is being funded and powered by Ford.

    In the video you will see names like "Fuller" who are "Jew", who are renaming every thing they stole from the vedas in their Jewish name.

    1. Good sharing, Along with blurred vision symptoms may include headaches, fatigue, and eye strain. You can also choose your artificial lens as it can be monofocal or multifocal, and with or without astigmatism correction depending on your eye. In short, this is a procedure that removes the cataractous lens and corrects any refractive power at the same time. For detail visit:

  2. are microhole glasses any beneficial for the eye I have myopia I have pair of them but have hardly ever used it I just wanted to ask you that are they any beneficial and will it improve my eyesight? also is better than using conventional glasses?

    Thanking you for your efforts in writing these posts

  5. Hi Sir, I suffer from Viral Keratitis. I remember we used to apply a Neem based Ayurvedic Gel when we got Conjunctivitis. It was touted to clear all eye related infections. I am not sure if you get it now. I am using the prescriptions provided by doctors but my vision has not improved. Can you please suggest?

    1. hi sekhar,

      i had picked up viral keratitis from the swimming pool once -- and i know how distressing this can be.

      i could NOT see more than 3 metres --and what i could see was like in fog.

      after this episode 12 years ago, i needed reading glasses.


      The diagnosis of keratitis is made by the use of a slit lamp.

      If keratitis is treated correctly and promptly, permanent damage to the eye can usually be avoided.

      Conjunctivitis is inflammation of the conjunctiva (covering on the white part of the eye). Keratitis is inflammation of the CORNEA.

      The cornea is the black dome-shaped window in the front of the eye as is half MM thick . The cornea bends light rays as a result of its curved shape and accounts for approximately two-thirds of the eye's total optical power.

      Infection is the most frequent cause of keratitis. Bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasitic organisms may all infect the cornea, causing infectious or microbial keratitis.

      Ulcerations of the cornea may occur, a condition known as ulcerative keratitis. Viruses that infect the cornea include respiratory viruses, including the adenoviruses and others responsible for the common cold.

      The herpes simplex virus is a common cause of keratitis.

      The symptoms of keratitis usually include pain, tearing, and blurring of vision. The pain may be mild to severe, depending on the cause and extent of the inflammation. Sensitivity to light may also be present.

      A culture may be taken from the surface of the eye for specific identification of the bacteria, virus, fungus, or parasite causing the keratitis. Blood tests may also be done in certain patients with suspected underlying disease.

      Infectious keratitis generally requires antibacterial, antifungal, or antiviral therapy to treat the infection. This treatment can involve prescription eye drops and pills

      Steroid drops may often be prescribed to reduce inflammation and limit scarring. This must be done carefully and judiciously, since some infections can be worsened with their use.

      Superficial keratitis involves the superficial layers of the cornea and commonly does not lead to scarring.

      More extensive keratitis involves deeper layers of the cornea, and a scar may develop upon healing. This will affect the vision if the central portion of the cornea is involved.

      With severe ulcerative keratitis, the cornea may perforate, which is an extremely serious situation-- you are now in sh#t creek without a paddle.

      For mild bacterial keratitis, antibacterial eyedrops may be all you need .

      If a virus is causing the infection, antiviral eyedrops and oral antiviral medications may be effective. The eye doctor may prescribe corticosteroid drops once surface disease is resolved. Scarring will decrease vision if the scar is located centrally in the visual axis.

      Keratitis caused by fungi typically requires antifungal eyedrops and oral antifungal medication.

      There is no complete cure for herpes; once the virus is in the body, you cannot get rid of it. Avoid steroid eye drops, as these cause the herpes virus to multiply.

      infection to CORNEA must be treated with great respect.

  6. Hi
    First of all i would like to thank you for sharing all this wonderful knowledge I was wondering if there is any way in yoga or medicine in Ayurveda to get rid of glasses permanently. just for info i have -4 in both eyes & i am just 30 yr old.

    1. hi pj-

      Myopia is the term used to define short sightedness where a person can see close ...

      A concave lens (minus powered) len is used.

      Palming is done to reduce stress around the eyes, by placing your palms around your eyes

      Let your eyes trace along the figure eight without moving your head. First trace in one direction, then in the opposite direction.

      Include fresh carrot, and omega-3 fatty acids in your diet.

      Buy pinhole glasses.

      LASIK (Laser-Assisted in situ Keratomileusis), commonly referred to as laser eye surgery, is refractive surgery for the correction of myopia.

      LASIK provides a permanent alternative to eyeglasses or contact lenses. It is just the reshaping of the cornea with the help of a cold laser (Excimer Laser), with sub micron accuracy.

      A thin corneal flap is lifted which is integrated with the main machine and laser is applied on the cornea in computer controlled, predetermined manner. This flap is replaced immediately, which adheres within a minute.

      LASIK is not at all a complicated procedure.

      Any person above the age of 18 years can do this.

      There is no upper age limit.

      Permanent, once in life time treatment.

      Both my parents did it.

      Do for one eye first.

      capt ajit vadakayil

  7. dear Captain

    There has been an immense debate in to Do and not to do Lasik Surgery. They say about risk of infection and blindness retinal destruction etc!

    1. hi uk,

      LASIK eye surgery is ta refractive surgery which changes the shape of your cornea — the dome-shaped transparent tissue at the front of your eye.

      The desired result of LASIK eye surgery is to bend (refract) light rays to focus more precisely on your retina rather than at some point beyond or short of your retina.
      Nearsightedness (myopia is when your eyeball is slightly longer than normal or when the cornea curves too sharply, light rays focus in front of the retina and blur distant vision. You can see objects that are close more clearly, but not those that are far away.

      Undercorrections. If the laser removes too little tissue from your eye, you won't get the clearer vision results you were hoping for.

      Undercorrections are more common for people who are nearsighted. You may need another refractive surgery (enhancement surgery) within a year to remove more tissue.
      Overcorrections. It's also possible that the laser will remove too much tissue from your eye.

      Overcorrections may be more difficult to fix than undercorrections.

      Glare, halos and double vision. After surgery you may have difficulty seeing at night. You might notice glare, halos around bright lights or double vision.

      Sometimes these problems can be treated with eyedrops that contain a type of corticosteroid, but a second surgery may be required.

      Even when a good visual result is measured under standard testing conditions, your vision in dim light (such as at dusk or in fog) may be reduced to a greater degree after the surgery than before the surgery.

      Dry eyes. LASIK causes a temporary decrease in tear production. For the first six months or so after your surgery, as your eyes heal they might feel unusually dry. Dry eyes can reduce the quality of your vision. Your eye doctor might recommend that you use eyedrops during this time.

      Flap problems. Folding back or removing the flap from the front of your eye during surgery can cause complications, including infection, excess tears and swelling. The outermost corneal tissue layer (epithelium) may grow abnormally underneath the flap during the healing process.

      If you're considering LASIK eye surgery, talk to your doctor about your questions and concerns.

      He can explain how the surgery might benefit you and help put the risks in perspective.

    How long should one wear the pinhole glasses?
    Can one use it to read computer screens?

    I need to wear glasses for reading so should I wear them everytime I read?

    Please advice

    1. hi an,

      pinhole glasses are basically to exercise the eye muscles .

  10. Dear Captain

    My friends daughter is 5 years old and has very high numbers in both eyes- -8.5 in one and -3.5 in the other. Her vision is quite weak too.

    Would the pinhole glasses be helpful for her to exercise her eyes? Would it help correcting the vision?
    Currently the doctor has advised her to patch her eyes for a few hours every day and she has to do a lot of eye exercises and the improvement is quite slow.


    1. hi a,

      yes- pinhole glasses will help Hyperopia (long sightedness- POSITIVE ) and Myopia (short sightedness- NEGATIVE )

      When you are shortsighted (myopic), your vision is clear for objects close to your eyes, but blurred for everything in the distance.

      capt ajit vadakayil

  11. Sir,

    I heard about Computer Vision Syndrome and went for eye check up. I have short-sightedness. The new readings are

    Right eye Left eye
    Distance -3 -3.5
    Near -2 -2.5

    I already have the necessary glasses. The doctor's advice was progressive. The lady also said something about beginning of presbyopia and 6 months visits. She also mentioned 10,000 Rs glasses in future. Do I really need all these if I read off computer screen or ebook reader?

    I always wanted to know what the correct display settings have to be for TVs and computer screens? I usually use low brightness and contrast settings. Should there also be a time limit on hours spent in front of them?

    Also is it possible to actually reduce the readings mentioned above without LASIK cure?


    1. hi gk,

      short sighted people everybody must carry 3 glasses of various powers--

      one for looking at books in a book stall , say, from a small distance of say 4 metres.

      one for looking into a computer or read books.

      one for say adjusting the date in your watch .

      today we have good eye hospitals--always take a second opinion.

      never try lasik surgery on both eyes together .

      first do surgery on the worse eye- - and after you are fully satisfied wait for one more FULL year - before you do the next one.

    2. I will follow your advice. Thanks Sir.

    3. thank you captain. I have been told my cornea is 2 thin for last this was over 10 yrs ago. I'm going to a doc again and we'll c. I may be able to get rid of my glasses

  12. Sir
    My wife seems to get a problem with one of her eyes which gets swelling but then goes back to normal after a few days. It seems to be related to her menstral cycle
    Do you have any thoughts on this?

    1. hi h,

      Oedema is a collection of fluid in the spaces between cells of the body. Most women tend to retain fluid just before and during their menstrual period, leading to swelling in the hands, feet, and face.

      This is due to a burst of hormones that cause a temporary imbalance until the period is over In all cases puffy eye bags (swollen eyes) usually triggered by fluid retention. One of the main causes of puffy eye bags is heredity.

      Cold water could be enough in cases of simple eye swelling – just splash your face with cold water and it will constrict the blood vessels and starts the fluid circulation thus reducing swelling.

      Estrogen peaks in the first half of a woman’s menstrual cycle to trigger ovulation. In women, progesterone and estrogen should exist in a ratio of about 30:1, but when this ratio becomes skewed and a woman has a deficiency of progesterone and/or an excess of estrogen, that woman is in a state of estrogen dominance.

      Many women experience fluid retention in the few days before their period starts. Fluid retention, which occurs because of hormone changes associated with the menstrual cycle, can cause uncomfortable swelling in hands and feet, abdominal bloating and weight gain.

      Diet and exercise can reduce excess fluid. Sodium attracts and holds fluid, so cutting down on your salt intake can reduce fluid retention around the time of your period. Many women experience sugar cravings before their period.

      But excess carbohydrate intake, particularly when combined with high salt intake, can worsen fluid retention. Maintaining a routine of aerobic exercise 3 to 4 times a week can also help control fluid retention.

      Try to eat foods that are good sources of potassium such as fruit (especially bananas), vegetables, meat, fish, shellfish, milk and milk products, nuts, seeds and pulses.

      The fluid regulating action of the kidneys is based on the dual pumping action of sodium and potassium – sodium draws water into the body while potassium helps to excrete it. Ensure that you drink plenty of water.

      While it may be tempting to drink less when you’re suffering from fluid retention, a low fluid intake causes you to retain fluid whereas keeping well hydrated promotes good kidney function.

  13. Is applying morning saliva to eyes good for the eyes ?

  14. hi g,

    The brain and the eyes work together to produce vision. The eye focuses light on the back part of the eye known as the retina. Cells of the retina then trigger nerve signals that travel along the optic nerves to the brain.

    Amblyopia is the medical term used when the vision of one eye is reduced because it fails to work properly with the brain. The eye itself looks normal, but for various reasons the brain favors the other eye. This condition is also sometimes called lazy eye.

    Eye misalignment is the most common cause of amblyopia. When both eyes are not aimed in the same direction, the developing brain "turns off" the image from the misaligned eye to avoid double vision and the child uses only the better, or dominant, eye.

    If this persists for any period of time, even as short as a few weeks, the eye will not connect properly to the visual cortex of the brain and amblyopia will result.

    One of the most common causes of amblyopia is strabismus, or wandering of one or both eyes either inward (called esotropia), outward (called exotropia), up (hypertropia), or down (hypotropia).

    A squint (strabismus) is a condition where the eyes do not look together in the same direction. Whilst one eye looks straight ahead, the other eye turns to point inwards, outwards, upwards or downwards. As the eyes are not straight (aligned), they focus on different things. The result is that the brain ignores the signals from one of the eyes to avoid seeing double.

    Another cause of amblyopia is severe far-sightedness (hyperopia), near-sightedness (myopia), or astigmatism (a form of blurry vision). These vision problems ("refractive errors") cause vision to be blurry, and it's these blurry images that are sent to the brain. Over time, the brain begins to ignore or suppress these unclear images, resulting in amblyopia in one or both eyes.

    A with a suspected amblyopia is usually referred to an orthoptist. Orthoptists are specially trained to assess and manage children with squint and amblyopia. If necessary, an orthoptist will refer a child to an ophthalmologist for further assessment and treatment.

    Amblyopia, also known as lazy eye, is a vision development disorder in which an eye fails to achieve normal visual acuity, even with prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses.

    There is a program called RevitalVision , which has produced improved vision in older children with lazy eye and adults with long-standing amblyopia. The treatment generally consists of 40 training sessions of 40 minutes each, conducted over a period of several weeks.

    RevitalVision is a computerized treatment for amblyopia. The program is approved for individuals age 9 and older .

    Amblyopia will not go away on its own, and untreated lazy eye can lead to permanent visual problems.


      Treating amblyopia involves forcing the child to use the eye with weaker vision. 1 in 25 children have it .

      An adhesive patch is worn over the stronger eye ( 2 hrs daily ) several months. This therapy forces the child to use the eye with amblyopia. Patching stimulates vision in the weaker eye and helps parts of the brain involved in vision develop more completely.

      A patch is placed on the normal eye . This forces the brain to recognize the image from the eye with amblyopia. Sometimes, Atropine drops are used to blur the vision of the normal eye instead of putting a patch on it.

      Atropine dilates the pupil and blurs the vision in the "good” eye, forcing the "bad" eye to do most of the work while the child is playing with toys, eating, drawing, or reading.

      Children whose vision will not fully recover, and those with only one good eye due to any disorder should wear shatter- and scratch-resistant glasses-- TO PROTECT THE GOOD EYE.

      Permanent vision problems may result if treatment is delayed. Children treated after age 10 can expect vision to recover only partially. Vision impairment becomes permanent because as the child’s brain matures, it will "ignore" the image coming from the poorly seeing eye.

      That’s why it’s essential to have a child with amblyopia regularly tested by an eye doctor.

  15. Hello Capt,
    Wish you are doing great.

    myself Raj. I have major eye issues. My left eye has a -15.5 power with -1.5 cylindrical power and the right eye is even worse. I can't use it anymore as the doctor's said I can't see with this eye anymore.

    I have been using contact lenses for 14 years. My left eye power was -3 without any Cylindrical power when I started wearing contact lenses but it's now reached to -15.5 power with -1.5 cylindrical power.

    My question is can I use Pinhole glasses? Will this be helpful to any extent?

    I look forward to your reply.

    Do the pinhole glasses meant for regular exercise show any reduction in power?
