    An opthamologist will dilate your pupils in order to get inside the eye and see what is going on. a Few hasids who travel to Uman for very spiritual times, may attempt to cover their eyes & prevent any disruptive sights from entering their eyes and mind, hampering their soul trip. If they know their strengths and weaknesses, these human blinders or maybe a dark pair of sunglasses might make the trip more successful. Most Jews who read the preliminary prayers before Yom Kipur can certainly understand the need to prepare one's mind and body for the 24hour period they are entering. Even going into the mikvah prior to Shabbas and holidays is part of their immersion process and weekly/season travels. this is indeed what the untaught Jews of the secularly brainwashed israel look for when they go to India and other remote places to find out who they are. Many return home with a nice photo album and some wild stories but no spiritual bullseye......until they stumble upon a Amnon Yitschak, a chabad friend, or just a life stirring moment like the birth of a child and they realize that their quest is right inside of them waiting to be nurtured and grown. As a haredi, I feel sorry for the veiled Jew who has to go that far, but on the other hand, if he needs that much 'help' to land in the right atmosphere and destination, why not. At least he will sleep better on the plane, than me with my ElAl eye shades.
