(Minghui.org) People may lose all or part of their eyesight due to various diseases such as cataract, retinal detachment, diabetes and glaucoma. Although most of the conditions are irreversible and incurable, over 300 cases have been documented by Minghui.org of blind or visually impaired people recovering from various eye diseases after practicing Falun Dafa, an ancient spiritual and meditation discipline.

Below are several such recovery stories.

Acute Glaucoma Healed

Mr. Ye Junyan, from Taiwan, went to the University of Texas in May 1999 to pursue a doctoral degree in Pharmacoeconomics (a branch of health economics that studies the costs and consequences of pharmaceutical products and services).

Not long after he landed in the U.S., his vision became very blurry one day. He was diagnosed with acute glaucoma, which is more commonly seen among by the elderly. Mr. Ye’s doctor said that his eye pressure was too high, which damaged the optic nerve. He was told, “In western medicine, there is no treatment that could enable damaged optic nerve to recover yet.”

Although he kept trying different treatments from Western medicine, Chinese medicine, and qigong, his vision condition didn’t undergo fundamental improvement. He was very frustrated, “I had to rely on medicine to control my eye condition, and my education and life were affected. I lived without hope.” he recalled.

In March 2001, Mr. Ye was introduced to Falun Dafa and started to practice it. He realized that everything he encountered was predestined. He realized how arrogant and self-centered he was. He said, “As I studied medicine and became obsessed with science, if it were not for my vision problem, it would have been impossible for me to accept Falun Dafa.”

Shortly after he stared practicing Falun Dafa, he personally experienced the celestial ear as Master mentioned in Zhuan Falun. He said, “I can hear music from another dimension. When I got up in the morning, I often felt a lot of Falun spinning in front of me, and I knew this was Master helping me restore my vision.”

He decided to stop all medication and treatment. His vision gradually improved and the condition stabilized. “It has been more than 10 years and I have not experienced any issues with my eyes.” He was able to complete his studies and receive his PhD in 2007.

After graduation, Mr. Ye worked as a research specialist at a top medical research institute and later became an assistant professor at a pharmacy college in New York. Currently he holds the position of Global Health Economics Manager at Amgen, one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world.

Doctoral Student’s Eye Disease Healed After Practicing Falun Dafa

Mr. Cao Kai received his bachelor’s degree from Lanzhou University in China. He went on to study at The Institute of Genetic and Developmental Biology, China Academy of Sciences. He was awarded the “Georgian Scholarship” and “Excellent Graduate Student” during his studies. Upon obtaining a Master’s degree, he continued his doctoral study at the same institution.

However, he had to suspend his studies because he suffered from a serious eye disease. His retina was in danger of detaching at any time, and he suffered hemorrhages in the fundus of his eyes two to three times a month. As a result, he could not read, run or jump, and was unable to carry out his normal study life. Whenever his eyes had bleeding, he could only lie in bed, afraid to move. The Institute granted him a two-year medical leave.

The doctor advised him to have an operation and to withdraw from his PhD program, and warned him that if his eyes bled again, he would lose his eyesight. Mr. Cao tried many treatments and practiced different schools of qigong, all without obvious effect.

Mr. Cao’s life was completely changed in May 1995 when he began to practice Falun Dafa. His illnesses all disappeared and he was so energetic that he once worked 48 hours straight without any problem.

Mr. Cao was unable to complete his doctoral study though, as he was repeatedly arrested for upholding his faith after the communist regime started persecuting Falun Dafa in 1999.

Boy’s Vision Restored after Sincerely Reciting the Auspicious Phrases

A Falun Dafa practitioner in China shared her son’s story below:

When my son Honghong was four, he started looking at things with his head tilted. He was diagnosed with amblyopia (lazy eye) and strabismus (crossed eyes). He had to wear glasses, and undergo various treatments and eye training sessions. But we didn’t see any obvious improvement.

During another examination in January 2012, the doctor discovered that my son’s conditions had turned into nearsightedness and astigmatism (imperfection in the eye’s curvature), and prescribed new glasses to correct his nearsightedness. However, he was still looking at things with his head tilted. I knew it was probably due to his crossed eyes, but I could not find a way to correct that.

Three months after he got the glasses, Honghong told me that he couldn’t read the blackboard even when he was sitting in the first row. So I took him again to the hospital around May 2012. The doctor decided to have another thorough examination of his eyes.

Through the optical coherence tomography (OCT), the doctor eventually concluded that Honghong had developmental glaucoma. The surface of the retina of his eyes had a damaged spot where the eyes would normally focus, that was possibly caused by excessive exposure to bright light. Therefore his eyes could only focus when he looked at things with his head tilted.

Due to the complication of Honghong’s condition, the doctor hesitated to operate on his eyes. I then brought him to see an acupuncture doctor, who warned that he didn’t have a cure. I insisted on trying the treatment. After a year, Honghong’s vision improved a bit and then stopped making any progress. And once he stopped the acupuncture treatment for two weeks, he went back to looking at things with his head tilted and eyes narrowed.

After about a year, my husband said to me, “One can avoid tragedies and have good fortune by sincerely reciting ‘Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’ Why don’t we stop the treatment and just leave our child in Master’s hands?”

After thinking about it again and again, I decided to stop Honghong’s medical treatment and instead encouraged him to recite the auspicious phrases every day.

After three months, his vision gradually returned to normal! In the past, as soon as we paused the treatment, his vision declined. But this time, his vision got better. He told me one day, “I can now read the blackboard from anywhere in the classroom, and I can see very clearly the small hand-written characters on the board that I couldn’t see before.” He no longer needed glasses, and no longer tilted his head.

When other parents asked me how Honghong’s eyesight was restored, and I proudly told them, “It was simply by reciting ‘Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’ Falun Dafa cured my son’s vision.”
