Acupuncture for Vision Problems

 
 

There are many types of eye problems and visual disturbances. These include blurred vision, halos, blind spots, floaters, and other symptoms. Blurred vision is the loss of sharpness of vision and the inability to see small details. Blind spots (scotomas) are dark "holes" in the visual field in which nothing can be seen.

Vision changes and problems can be caused by many different conditions. Some include:

  • Presbyopia -- difficulty focusing on objects that are close. Often becomes noticeable in your early to mid 40s.
  • Cataracts -- cloudiness over the eye lens, causing poor nighttime vision, halos around lights, and sensitivity to glare. Daytime vision is eventually affected. Common in the elderly.
  • Glaucoma -- increased pressure in the eye, causing poor night vision, blind spots, and loss of vision to either side. A major cause of blindness. Glaucoma can happen gradually or suddenly -- if sudden, it's a medical emergency.
  • Diabetic retinopathy -- this complication of diabetes can lead to bleeding into the retina. Another common cause of blindness.
  • Macular degeneration -- loss of central vision, blurred vision (especially while reading), distorted vision (like seeing wavy lines), and colors appearing faded. The most common cause of blindness in people over age 60.
  • Eye infection, inflammation, or injury.
  • Floaters -- tiny particles drifting across the eye. Although often brief and harmless, they may be a sign of retinal detachment.
  • Night blindness.
  • Retinal detachment -- symptoms include floaters, flashes of light across your visual field, or a sensation of a shade or curtain hanging on one side of your visual field.
  • Optic neuritis -- inflammation of the optic nerve from infection or multiple sclerosis. You may have pain when you move your eye or touch it through the eyelid.
  • Stroke or TIA.
  • Brain tumor.
  • Bleeding into the eye.
  • Temporal arteritis -- inflammation of an artery in the brain that supplies blood to the optic nerve.
  • Migraine headaches -- spots of light, halos, or zigzag patterns are common symptoms prior to the start of the headache.

If all of the above conditions have been eliminated and you are still suffering from the vision problem, very likly you have un-noticed injury on your cervical area, which cause the vertebral subluxation, in this case, the acupuncture and chiropractic could be the effective treatment to relieve the pain and improve the blood circulation so as to trigger the self-healing power of the body.

In our clinic we have successfully treated patients with blurred vision and pain in eyes.
