Short sight(-1.2 both eyes) problem from last 3yrs. Doctors suggest to wear glasses but i'm not fond of wearing that. Is there any natural way to cure

No: This isn't being unspiritual or closed-minded. From my own reading, the bates exercises haven't held up on controlled studies, which doesn't surprise me.

Get contact lenses or other rx. ...Read more

Is there any of way to correct astigmatism besides refractive surgery?

Is there any of way to correct astigmatism besides refractive surgery?

Not exactly: If you mean to permanently get rid of your astigmatism, the only way is through surgery. If you mean to correct your astigmatism so that you can see clearly, glasses or toric contact lenses will do this.
