Spirituality, Faith, Health, and Living with Vision Issues

It's not often talked about, but practicing spirituality actually requires time, effort, and focus. So, having a disability like impaired vision can really affect you. If we can't see things clearly, how are we supposed to learn life's lessons and become more aware? Out of our five basic senses, Sight is the one we rely on the most.


Balancing spiritual practices and everyday life

One key challenge we all face is the difficulty of balancing spiritual practices and everyday life. You may find it challenging to make time for meditation or prayer amidst a busy schedule, which can lead to feelings of guilt, but it’s essential to view spirituality as an integrated part of our daily lives rather than something separate or a chore. You can try incorporating spiritual practices seamlessly by starting your mornings with meditation or dedicating time for mindful reflection and prayer throughout the day.

Clean vision makes a difference also in spirituality

Genuine motivation is crucial in strengthening your spirituality and, consequently, your health. Having authentic intentions of connecting with yourself, with a higher being, and with your surroundings allows you to have a more fulfilling spiritual journey.

I found from my own experience that a combination of:

is the best for enhancing both soul and body awareness, and also for body healing of most health issues!

The role of spirituality in dealing with vision issues

The World Health Organization estimates that around 2.2 billion people are experiencing near or distant vision impairment globally. Ocular problems can lead to major barriers to mobility, thus affecting daily activities like reading, driving, and cooking. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, this can result in loss of independence, which can lead to mental health issues like anxiety and depression, thus prompting the need for effective coping strategies that can help the visually impaired deal with their circumstances. 

Strengthening spirituality is one way of helping people cope.

Research published in the Brazilian Journal of Ophthalmology found that spiritual beliefs, including trust in a benevolent higher being, could provide meaning and strength to individuals who cope with severe visual impairments like blindness. Another study indicated that 68% of US patients believed that a higher power gives them the strength to be at peace with their illness. Below, we look at how spirituality affects living with vision issues, and how you can strengthen your vision and spiritual health. 

As mentioned, spiritual practices such as believing in a higher power and praying or meditating regularly can facilitate people’s ability to cope with vision issues. A Frontiers in Psychology study revealed that spirituality is an important factor in helping people with age-related macular degeneration (AMD) achieve a happier emotional state and well-being despite their condition. Patients with AMD can reinforce a positive outlook about their circumstances because of their spiritual belief that death is not the end.

The study also found that prayers and meditations provided patients with comfort and strength, helping them deal with the fear of potential vision loss. By having this internal and divine connection with God or a higher being, patients may change their perspective of the disease, allowing them to view it as a challenge to overcome.

Protecting your eyes 

While spirituality can help you deal with ocular issues, preserving eye health is still important for a better quality of life. Wearing regular and prescription sunglasses is crucial for reducing the risks of diseases like macular degeneration, especially if you have existing vision problems.

Some reputable eyewear producers offer a range of options for consumers of all ages and one or two-year warranty for breakages caused by manufacturing defects. Wearing protective sunglasses helps prevent the worsening of these vision issues, and in some cases, such as the use of polarized lenses, even helps improve comfort and quality of life with daily wear.

Regular eye tests are equally important. By booking an eye exam, you can determine if you’ll need prescription glasses and even detect early signs of ocular problems such as glaucoma and cataracts. You can also check the websites of eyewear retailers to schedule an appointment at your nearest clinic. Frequent eye check-ups help prevent major eye diseases from getting in the way of your everyday routines.

Conclusion: strengthening both your spirituality and vision

Your spiritual journey is important to help you get through difficult times, particularly when dealing with vision issues. However, embarking on a spiritual exploration is not always a walk in the park, and you might face challenges that can impede your spiritual growth. It is, therefore, essential to identify key traps that could get in the way of your spiritual practice. 


It's so important to remember that spirituality can help us cope with health issues, including vision problems. There are so many ways to connect with your spirituality, whether it's through prayer, meditation, or just feeling comforted by the idea that there's something bigger than ourselves. When you strengthen both your health and spirituality, you can enjoy the wonderful benefits of a healthy physical and spiritual life!
