Conjunctivitis (also called madras eye or pink eye) usually affects both eyes; however it can start in one, and then spread from one to another over a few days. It is an inflammation of the conjunctiva, which is the mucous membrane covering the white of the eyes and the inner side of the eyelids.
There are five different types of conjunctivitis – viral, bacterial, chlamydial, allergic and reactive, and whichever type you have, gentle yoga techniques will help ease and even eliminate symptoms. You may wish to do many of the postures with your eyes closed whilst focusing on your breathing. The life force in your breath will help heal your eyes.
