Glaucoma is a very serious eye disease.It is the intraocular pressure higher than normal. Some patients have symptoms such as headache, vision decrease. One common indication of all types of glaucoma is lack of blood flow to the optic nerve that can lead to loss of vision.
Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicines can help.
Natural care acupuncture promotes circulation to the eyes, and decrease intraocular pressure.
I treated one patient who has been diagnosed glaucoma, he had a very bad headache behind his left eye, only one treatment, the headache was disappeared. The herbal medicine helps to maintain the intraocular pressure to be normal.
People who have these followings should take an complete eye examination every year:
- family history of glaucoma
- smoke more than one pack per day cigarettes
