Abstract

One of the Common cause of myopia and hypermetropia is gaze-shifting mechanism as saccades and pursuit movements. The term gaze denotes attentive looking at something in this narrow sense, a gaze shift is the realignment of the line of sight so as to bring the image of a new object of interest to the central retina where receptor density and visual resolution are the highest. the eyes are never completely at rest. They make fast random jittering movements even when we are fixated on one point. The reason for this random movement is related to the photoreceptors and the ganglion cells. It appears that a constant visual stimulus can make the photoreceptors or the ganglion cells become unresponsive; on the other hand a changing stimulus will not. Methodology- Pre reading of vision was taken with the help of snellen’schart. Individuals received myofascial release of splenius capitis and splenius cervicis for one week each treatment session contains 90 to 120 second hold and release for 5 minutes to release the multiple layers of fascial restrictions the treatment is given for 1 week every day. Post reading of vision was taken with the help of snellen’schart. All the data recorded and analysed. Results- the effect of release of splenius capitis and splenius cervicis on visual impairment resulting from myofascial dysfunction is statistically significant and therefore alternate hypothesis is accepted.
