Blurred Vision

In a society that encourages spending long hours at work and school, typically sitting at a computer or in front of a book, conditions that cause blurred vision are overly common. Therefore, the most common causes of impaired visual acuity are myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. Symptoms usually increase with age, but even elementary school children are regularly being prescribed glasses at stronger prescriptions.

Giving yourself and your children opportunity to spend more time outside and resting their eyes, you may prevent such conditions as myopia from worsening or slow age-related decline in vision.

How Acupuncture Works for Vision Problems

Acupuncture is a widely used treatment method in China, and it is currently used as part of complex medical treatment in many countries. Its essence lies in the impact on the active points of the body at strictly defined points, corresponding to the location of the peripheral nerve branches.

Conventional treatment simply compensates for the problem through external means (glasses) or internally by reshaping another part of the eye (laser surgery). Acupuncture for eye problems works on the underlying cause!

In general, Chinese medicine describes myopia in childhood as caused by deficiencies in nutrition, development, and daily routine; in adulthood, stagnation of energy and blood are the most common issues.

With acupuncture successful treatment, you can expect more situations where you can avoid wearing glasses, or changing back to a weaker prescription.

Psychological factors are very important during the treatment of blurred vision:

  • the patient's mood for recovery and successful treatment,
  • believe in the method of treatment,
  • sincere trust your doctor.
