365 Ways #184–”See” how vision affects posture

#184--In my assessment of a client, it’s common for me to find altered head carriage. Most of these cases have an etiology in ocular dysfunction. It’s an attempt to regain binocular vision and to balance tension in the muscles of the eyes. Though many opthamologists overlook (no pun intended) this possibility, the muscles of the eyes affect the function of the eyes just like the muscles of the pelvis affect the function of the pelvis. And it’s a two way street–when posture changes, your vision may change; when your vision changes, your posture may change. Maybe you don’t need a new prescription for glasses. Maybe you just need to stand up straight.
