Treating Eyes Through Natural Methods
The courtyard outside the doctor's office is crowded with children and
grown-ups. Some are as young as five-year old, others middle-aged and
older, but the majority are school and college-going students.
Each one is engaged in sunning, palming, swinging, shifting, rocking or practising on the Snellen Chart. Some ares winging the pencil in a slow motion, as they follow the movement with one eye, while the other is kept covered with a patch. All have earnest, rather harrowed expressions. They are suffering from defective eyesight.
Dr. M.S. Agarwal, who has been treating defective eyesight through natural methods for 48 years, shakes his head in despair. "What is going to happen in another ten years?" he asks. "Each one of these children here has spoilt his/her eyesight by watching TV and video movies for hours."
Just then a small boy and his mother enter the office. The woman asks hesitantly if her son can see the Sunday movie on TV for "just a little while".
