Question:
I have blurred vision all of a sudden in my left eye. I underwent all of the tests suggested by the eye doctor. All reports are normal with regards to cardiac, diabetes and pressure. The doctor says the vein going to the eye has been blocked. Could you please tell me any exercise or anything that can remove the blockage as I'm unable to see with my left eye.

Answer:
This sounds like a retinal vascular occlusion which is a common cause of visual loss. There are effective FDA-approved treatments for this problem, but unfortunately not everyone responds. Unfortunately, there are no exercises that help.
