He Still Doesn’t Need Glasses

In a new episode on the podcast Table Manners with Jessie Ware, Paul McCartney shared some tips that helped preserve his eyesight. Even at 78 years old, he doesn’t need to wear eyeglasses. And the secret? Because of an eye yoga routine that he learned in India.

“I learned [it] off some yogi in India,” he said. “He explained that your eyes are muscles whereas your ears aren’t, so you can’t exercise your ears. But your eyes, you can.”

Macca then instructed the listeners on how to do it.

“So, head still, and then you look up as far as you can, one, two, three, go back to the middle, then down, one, two, three, then back to the middle,” he explained. “You do three lots of that, then go to the left and the right. Now you’ve got a cross, up and down, and sideways, now you do the diagonals.”

Since he’s never needed glasses, we’re pretty sure this technique worked out well for him. It might even help those who stare at computers or smartphones for long periods of time – to prevent eyestrain.

“It’s pretty good stuff. It makes sense, though, doesn’t it? It makes sense if they [eyes] are muscles,” he added. “I don’t know if it means that that’s why I don’t need glasses when I’m reading a newspaper. It makes sense, you know? It’s a good idea.”
