Satish Rao: Dump those spectacles, regain clear eyesight…. Seriously?!
Dr. Padmalochan Jena: See any case once they start with the glass, number will keep increasing. Every six months they will call you and number say 0.5 / 0.75 they will increase.
Dr. Padmalochan Jena: The cause of the increase in the number of the glass, what I am seeing, is the glass itself. Because once you start the glass your eye muscle doesn’t need to work. The muscle will become completely dependent on the glass. The muscle will day by day become weak, number increases

Here is the conversation only slightly edited for text:
Satish Rao: Dr Padmalochan Jena, welcome to Proholistic Health! Good to have you here.
Dr. Padmalochan Jena: Yeah
Satish Rao: Thank you Dr Padmalochan! I hear that you see a lot of cases of children having eye problems Opthalmic problems. What are typically the cases that you see with children and their eye problems?
Dr. Padmalochan Jena: Yeah, children are mainly started with Myopic number Myopia; that is minus number Some of the cases, the children by birth is lazy eye one of the eye is lazy. Some have Hypermetropia, it is plus number, started with plus number. Some have Nystagmus, the shaking of the Eyeball. These are the major reasons for the children that are coming.
We are taking care naturally through Holistic treatment, through Ayurveda and eye exercises
Satish Rao: Oh, so how different are you in terms of your treatment to these children for these conditions? Especially Myopia, we see a lot of children with those glasses and year on year their number keeps increasing.
Dr. Padmalochan Jena: So, Myopia you can see, in any eye hospital you will go, you will see they will give the glass. You can see if you see any cases once they start with the glass, number will keep increasing. Every six months they will call you and number, say 0.5 / 0.75 they will increase. The cause of the increase in the number of the glass what I am seeing, is glass itself!
Because once you start the glass your eye muscle not need to work. The muscle will completely depend on the glass. Muscle will day by day become weak, number increases.
Second biggest problem with the glass is that what glass they give, is fixed for 6 metres but they will tell you, always wear the glass. So there 6 metres glass children are used for reading and writing also. So once that far glass is used for near object that will strain the eye muscle even more and increase the number.
Third, your eyeball movement will stop. Once with glass, if you want to see some side object, you have to turn your head. Without glass you can move your eye on any side. Around 80% to 90% eyeball movement stops by wearing the glass. That also strains your eye muscle and increases the number. So you are starting glass, means you are encouraging your problem you are not solving your problem.
Problem is with your muscles, you should treat the muscles. So all the exercise what we have designed here, there are around 12 varieties of exercises we’ve designed. And around 12 to 14 varieties of treatments, some massages, some treatments, some dharaas, some extra tool to keep on the eye, to strengthen the eye muscles. Through that process, the power which is increasing that is coming down, gradually coming down.
Satish Rao: So Doctor, typically for a child how young child can be brought for this kind of treatment? How soon can they be brought for this treatment?
Dr. Padmalochan Jena: See we are starting from treatment actually, what we have is 7 days / 10 days process. One residential course where we start after the child is 5 years only. Once they learn the letters only, they can start the exercise.
Satish Rao: So are they for the cases where there is a condition where there is a hereditary condition or likelihood that such child will get for those kind of conditions or?
Dr. Padmalochan Jena: See hereditary nowadays, those parents who have glasses, now children have glasses. Due to the genetic pool, because once the parents are wearing glass… How does it come genetically? Our lifestyles are closed, in a very limited area. For example, when you wake up in the morning, go to the school, office, work on table / computer, come home, watch TV and sleep. We have literally no time to look at some far off objects, forget about the stars and the moon!
And our lifestyle is very close our almost every work is closer. Due to that, our vision is limiting. Eye is not going towards far off objects. That is another factor with every passing generation to generation, our far vision is getting weaker. So, that is why if parents have glasses, it is coming to the child also. Gradually our vision is limiting. Very limited area!
Nowadays we have adopted “Flat” lifestyle. If you look through your window you see another Flat only, that’s all! No sky view, so our vision is limiting, in very limited area. That is limiting our vision. That is creating problems and starting power for eyes. If genetically not there also children are starting number. Like this whole day they are inside room only, watching tapes, TV, Mobiles… Vision is limiting to near only. It is not going to far at all! That is a very important thing, to take our Vision to far. Then your far problem is solved. So that is not there nowadays. So limiting.. vision is limiting, that is when we have started having more far vision problems and for far you need the glass dependency to see. That is what is happening.
Satish Rao: So the more and more the muscle gets weaker and weaker! And it gets into a cycle where you can’t come out of it.
Dr. Padmalochan Jena: Yes, that is the thing. Generally 0.5 – 1 number power will come down in every six month with our treatment. That much number is surely coming down, whatever the age maybe. But we are getting very fast result within the age of 21 years because that is the growing stage.. that too we see very fast result, power will come down very soon. After 21, body growth stops and then the improvement is a little slow.
But after 40 years age, those who have reading number, for those cases also we are getting very good results.
Satish Rao: If they come for a residential program of 7 days to 15 days after that they can follow their routine at home? And then?
Dr. Padmalochan Jena: We give all the kits for all the exercises. We teach correctly, so they will practice in the home with the kits. So every six months maybe we call them once for one more phase of treatment. So then gradually what was 0.5 – 0.5 increasing power, that will become 0.5 – 0.5 reducing power. That too, in an easy way, very naturally!
Satish Rao: And typically how many times they have to come here?
Dr. Padmalochan Jena: Depends on your power. If it is 1 or 2 number power means, maybe 1 or 2 sessions. If 10 number power, maybe 5 to 10 session is needed. It depends on your power, your age.
Satish Rao: Besides these exercises and the aid that you are giving for them to do the exercises, is there any medications also prescribed to them?
Dr. Padmalochan Jena: Yes, we have very good medications, With some herbal mineral medicines. So they are helping a lot to strengthen the eye muscles. See in previous days if you remember Kings were taking food in golden pot, a little gold should go into your body. Gold and Silver are the best for Nerves. Now science also proves that Citracal may be good for our body. So those preparations, medicines we have, herbal mineral medicine. That we are giving more importance for eyes because eye or retina is the part of nervous system. Rods and Cone cells are mainly responsible for the vision. So those medicines are working very nicely for the children and other people also.
Satish Rao: Can you give any suggestions to parents as to what advice and what kind of regime they should prescribe to their children? To ensure that their eyes are healthier, in simple routine ways, because they cannot do anything drastic but something in their lifestyle that is there.. With a little eye for details and with a little awareness, what else can they do for the children?
Dr. Padmalochan Jena: See nowadays parents are having very busy lifestyle. But what they are doing? Giving the gadgets to the children if they are out…. TV, gadgets, mobiles and all these things. But it is very very harmful What I am telling is, if you can see, a child playing on the screen something is moving inside, they are also moving from outside, hour on hour they are playing in high bright light. The latest research says that due to playing long time on the screen, your stress anxiety will become more, destructive mind will be more developed in the children, memory power are getting weak in the children. And a lot of children are starting glass due to playing on the screen. Lot of indoor and outdoor games are there Badminton, table tennis, Basketball, chess… Encourage the child to play to make them physically and mentally healthy.
They should build habits to indulge in those type of games. But don’t allow to play on the screen, that is my request for the parents. They should not allow the screen, alternative something you may think. But don’t give the gadgets at least. These radiations are also very very dangerous.
Satish Rao: So the more they encourage them to go out and take part in activities and games, it is better yeah.
Dr. Padmalochan Jena: That is better Yes Yeah, some serious sports also are good physically it is also good and also at the same time it gives you a mental and physical health.
Satish Rao: For adults and for parents and for elderly, that is grandparents, if they have to take extra care for their eyes, can you suggest some preventive methods, diets?
Dr. Padmalochan Jena: See diet has very important role, what I am seeing is that a lot of people are habituated to consume the processed foods. Processed food contain a lot of preservatives. Preservatives is nothing but insecticides. Insecticides in a way creates high blood barrier what is there. There is a membrane, what food we are taking, its mixed in the blood. But it not enters into the eyeball. If it enters then your vision would be finished. But these preservatives are such minute particles, they can enter through that membrane.
So that can be very damaging our eyes. So what I am telling is processed food don’t take! Food which contain preservatives avoid! Before taking any food see what is its composition or ingredients. If some preservatives are there, then don’t take. And fresh food, generally, I advise my patients to take the gajar.. carrot juice everyday. It contains very rich of carotene, it can directly enter into our, as our Rhodospin pigment Convert into Rhodospin pigment inside our Rods cells. It improves your night vision very nicely I advise the patient to take almonds. Almond has the shape like an eye, you can see.. nature made it like an eye. It is very good for eyes, gives vitamin A. And very easily digestible protein. It is very very good for our eyes.
All colour fruits you can take like Papaya, you can take Pomegranate. You can take Kharbuja (Muskmelon), Tarbuja (Watermelon) and even Oranges. All these things and colour fruits are very helpful for our retinal cells also. So fresh fruits, salads must be there in your diet, everyday. Instead of processed food boiled food also less but salads, fresh fruits, some sprouts. Those will definitely help to improve your eyes.
Satish Rao: You had a very interesting take about Glaucoma and also about Cataract.
Dr. Padmalochan Jena: So you should not go for operation as per my opinion.. Till your vision is not blurry, or cloudy.. But if you come to us before you will not need any operation. We are taking care, naturally through our treatment and exercises. See if you operate the cataract also your vision will not be 100% comfortable.
The natural lens which contracts and dilates.. when you are looking far it becomes thin and looking near it become thick.
So how much naturally you should maintain, you maintain through our exercise and through our treatments. As per Ayurveda it is Pitta – Kafa imbalance, so we are treating accordingly. We are selecting such a beautiful herb for the Cataract, it is working very fantastically. In 7 – 10 days people are seeing much clear vision. What they were able to read 3 / 4 line, now they are reading extra lines for far vision also, with our treatment.
Satish Rao: So Dr. Padmalochan, thank you very much for your time. It’s been a pleasure talking to you and it was very interesting.
Dr. Padmalochan Jena: Thank you!
