Paul McCartney revealed he practises eye yoga in order to give his eyes a workout and aid his vision, even crediting the technique for helping him read without spectacles.

The former Beatle was a guest with his daughter and photographer Mary on the podcast Table Manners with Jessie Ware when he shared eye yoga helped improve his vision.

‘I learned off some yogi in India. He explained that your eyes are muscles. Your ears aren’t, so you can’t exercise your ears. But your eyes, you can,’ McCartney said.

He added that he did not know if doing eye yoga was why he didn’t need frames while reading but said: ‘It makes sense, you know? It’s a good idea.’
