Objectives: 1) To assess the Visual acuity of the children. 2) To provide Meir Schneider method to enhance the visual acuity of the children. 3) To evaluate the effectiveness of the Meir Schneider method in the Children. 4) To find the association between the level of Myopia and selected Variables of children with Myopia. Methodology: The design adopted for this study was Pre-Experimental One Group Pre test Post test research design. Setting of the study was Alchemy school, Coimbatore. The sample size was 30. Simple Random Sampling technique was used. Meir Schneider method mainly consists of steps such as Palming, Massage, Blinking and Shifting. The effectiveness of Meir Schneider methods were measured by Snellen chart. Result: The calculated paired ‘t’ value for level of myopia in right eye is 4.30 and in left eye is 4.24. The finding revealed that there was a significant difference exists among before intervention and after intervention scores after proving Meir Schneider method. Conclusion: The report of this study revealed with the evidence that Meir Schneider method brings substantial improvement in the child’s visual acuity.
