(Minghui.org) People may lose all or part of their eyesight due to various diseases such as cataracts, 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.

Glaucoma Healed after Reciting the Falun Dafa Auspicious Phrases

Mr. Tian is an engineer at an international motor company in Michigan, U.S. His father suddenly lost his vision two years ago. The doctor said that he had glaucoma and needed immediate surgery. Though he regained a little vision after the surgery, he still couldn’t see clearly. He also felt that his eyelids were swollen and he was unable to open them.

Mr. Tian helped his father quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its two youth organizations. His father knew how bad the CCP was because he’d lived through several of its political movements. Having experienced Dafa’s miracles himself, Mr. Tian hoped his father would be blessed as well. “I often reminded him to recite the phrases ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’ He was very receptive and always told me that he would.”

“Around six months ago, while my father was reading the newspaper, he heard a faint thump. A small device that was inserted in his eye after the surgery had fallen out. He was shocked and worried at the same time. But after a couple of days, my father realized that he had regained his vision.” Mr. Tian recalled.

“My father said that he’d received blessings from reciting the phrases and expressed his gratitude to Master and Dafa!”

Victim of Medical Malpractice Recovered after Practicing Falun Dafa

Ms. Xia Haizhen was born in a small village in northern Jiangsu Province, China in the winter of 1974. When she was 17, she went to Shanghai to make a living. In three years, she owned a hair salon.

She looked in the mirror one day and felt something strange in her eye. She saw a grain sized flesh in the corner of her left eye. “What if it grows bigger and eventually affects my appearance?” She decided to undergo surgery to remove it. She never expected that the small surgery would damage her life.

The doctor removed her left tear duct as a lipoma and severed the levator muscle by mistake, leaving her with no tears to moisten her eye. Later she had to have the left eye removed and she went blind. Moreover, Ms. Xia had to suffer from incurable dry-eye. She had to have eye drops every three minutes. Her eyes often had to be operated on because of inflammation, ulcers, and infections, and she had to depend on medication for the rest of her life.

In January 1999, when Ms. Xia was 25, she went to the hospital for another oculoplastic surgery. In the ward she saw an elderly woman, who was there accompanying her grandson, always reading a book. She asked what the book was. The grandma showed her the book title Zhuan Falun, the main text of Falun Dafa. Ms. Xia opened the first page and she saw the picture of Master Li Hongzhi.

“Master looked at me kindly, just like my father.” Ms. Xia recalls, “I finished reading the book without stopping. When I read, ‘when one’s divinity shines through, it is moving to higher beings throughout the many planes of the universe. All who behold it will wish to provide help, and will do so unconditionally.’ (The First Talk, Zhuan Falun), I immediately felt that the eyes of the ten worlds were looking at me.” She shouted in her mind, “Higher beings please be my witness that Xia Haizhen is going to practice Falun Dafa.”

After she was discharged, she started to search for an exercise site nearby. In April 1999, she found one. After a while, she felt that her eyes were dry and put eye drops into her eyes. A middle-aged woman named Li Weihong came to her, “You have started to practice Falun Dafa, and you no longer need eye drops.” She replied, “My eyes cannot be cured, I have to keep putting eye drops.” Ms. Li said, “Just try not using the eye drops.”

Ms. Xia was skeptical. After she went back home, she sat in a chair staring at the clock in front of her. She was wondering how long she could sustain without the eye drops. Three minutes passed, and she felt no pain in her eyes. Three hours past, still no pain. “It was amazing!” she said, “I really do not need eye drops anymore!”

Since then she no longer used eye drops. She never went to hospital either, since all her illnesses disappeared.

Blind 3-Year-old Boy Sees Again after Reciting the Nine Special Words

A practitioner from Tianjing City, China told the story of how her grandson restored his eyesight. The following is part of her article “Young Child Recovers from Blindness and Glaucoma.”

“My three-year-old grandson began to suffer from pain in his right eye in September 2016. Oral medication and eye drops from our local clinic had no effect. Within weeks our grandson’s eyeball had swollen to the point that it resembled a glass ball, and his previously black pupils had turned greenish white. The Tianjin Eye Hospital informed us that my grandson was blind in his right eye, and no cure was available.

“Unconvinced, my son sought a second opinion from a famous eye specialist at the Beijing Tongren Hospital. The expert diagnosed my grandson as having glaucoma, and confirmed that his right eye was permanently blind. This news stunned my son and daughter-in-law.

“The doctor informed them that surgery was a treatment option, but only for temporary pain relief. He said his eyesight would never return, and he would need permanent treatments.

“For my grandson’s entire time at the hospital, he required multiple doses of anesthesia in order to relieve his excruciating pain. I had heard adult glaucoma sufferers describe the intense pain they suffered post-surgery, and now this same pain was being inflicted on my three-year-old grandchild. I had never felt so helpless.

“After surgery, in order to reduce the recurrence of swelling in his eye, the doctors instructed us not to let my grandson cry. Mindful of his advice, we cajoled and soothed my grandson in order to prevent him from crying. Despite our efforts, my grandson’s eye started swelling again after one week. He also began complaining of pain in his other eye.

“This new development plunged our family into a state of panic. My son paced back and forth while my husband and I cried in despair. My husband desperately suggested, ‘I am already so old. Can they take my eyes and transplant them into our grandson?’ My son informed us that such eye transplants were not possible using current medical science.

“We were at a loss. Although continued surgery was an option, the first surgery had already cost us more than 30,000 yuan. Even if we were able to obtain that large sum of money, our grandson would have to undergo many painful procedures until he was 17 or 18 years old. Even then, there was no guarantee that the procedures could preserve his remaining eyesight.

“At this point my husband said to me, ‘You had better resume practicing Falun Dafa again. We will beg Dafa’s founder Master Li to save our child, and the whole family will recite “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’ (She started practicing Falun Dafa in 1997, but stopped due to the persecution started in 1999. She resumed practicing again in 2017.)

“Desperate, our entire family began reciting those precious words with the sincerest of hearts. Still, there was no improvement after 20 days.

“At my wits end, I consulted my older aunt who still practiced Falun Dafa. After listening to my story she said, ‘Reciting this phrase sincerely should definitely produce results. Could it be that your family uttered disrespectful words to Master and the Fa in the past?’

“My husband and son admitted that they had, while my daughter-in-law was unable to recall if she had. My husband finally said, ‘It does not matter. Our whole family will write solemn statements to invalidate all previous actions and words that denounced Dafa.’

“That night, my husband and I wrote solemn statements. My son and daughter-in-law were only able to produce their statements on the second day. To our indescribable joy, my grandson awoke on the morning of the third day with the swelling in his eye much reduced! Encouraged, the whole family continued reciting, ‘Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!’

“Less than three weeks later, another unexpected miracle occurred. My grandson had been playing with his parents on their bed when suddenly he covered his good eye with his hand. My daughter-in-law teased him, ‘Can you see me?’ Unexpectedly, my grandson shouted out happily, ‘I can see!’ In disbelief, my daughter-in-law shifted around the room to test his eyesight. With each shift in her position, my grandson’s eye darted unerringly to follow her.

“I burst into tears of happiness when I found out. I thanked Master for his compassionate salvation.

“My grandson then told us, ‘Both of my eyes are alright.’”
