Abstract

Aim of Study: To evaluate the effects of Trataka yoga on Visual Evoked Potential (VEP) in myopic subjects
Methodology: Out of 36 myopes recruited for the study, 25 subjects were considered for statistical analysis.
Visual Evoked Potential was recorded before and after an intervention of Trataka yoga kriya for 3 weeks.
Results: The study showed that there was no significant statistical change in P100 latency pre and post
intervention with mean readings of 95.25 and 95.79ms pre and post intervention respectively for the left eye
and 95.15 and 96.4ms pre and post intervention respectively for right eye.
Conclusion: Our study concluded that Trataka yoga has no significant effect on VEP but better designed
studies need to be done on a larger sample to confirm these findings and study the above association
accurately.
