Acu-Vision Therapy

Vision is not merely one of the five senses providing knowledge about the world around us. The visual analyzer, comprising optic and muscular systems, as well as receptive (retina), conductive (nerves), and visual brain center components, plays a crucial role in maintaining and regulating processes related to metabolism and mental health. Given the significant role of vision, it is essential to maintain healthy eyes to ensure proper functioning.

The health of the retina, which serves as the light-receiving inner surface of the eye, is paramount for maintaining good vision. At the Life Balance Clinic in Glenview, we utilize the Vision Recovery Acupuncture Program with great success in safeguarding and restoring retinal health for various eye conditions. Taking into account the anti-inflammatory and recovery aspects concerning the eye's muscular and nervous supply and regulation, we now offer advanced Acu-Vision acupuncture therapy in Chicago, IL

What Are the Causes of Eye Problems?

A wide range of eye conditions exists, exhibiting various inflammatory and non-inflammatory characteristics. Among them are macular degeneration (wet and dry), Stargardt’s Disease, Diabetic Retinopathy, Retinitis Pigmentosa, glaucoma, Optic Neuritis, dry eye syndrome, and others, These conditions may be classified based on their fundamental causes as follows:

  • Congenital diseases including hereditary and intrauterine ones,
  • Traumatic injuries (mechanical, chemical, thermal, and photo flash burn),
  • Infectious pathologies (by bacteria, viruses, fungi),
  • Age-related eye conditions,
  • Eye diseases caused by visual hygiene disorders,
  • Lifestyle-caused and ecological pathologies,
  • Eye health complications because of other serious diseases (diabetes mellitus, hypertension, TORCH (toxoplasmosis, rubella, cytomegalovirus infection, herpes) infections, systemic autoimmune diseases),
  • Tumors of eyes and brain,
  • Allergic conditions,
  • Other eye pathologies (degenerative, metabolic ones due to malnutrition, lack of vitamins and minerals, etc.).

Eye diseases can have similar symptoms regardless of their causes and origin. The most common signs of eye pathologies are:

  • eye pain, redness and itching;
  • dry eyes, lacrimation;
  • blurred vision and decreasing visual acuity;
  • reducing field of vision, etc.

The concern is that most diseases can be effectively treated if diagnosed at their outset, when symptoms are not yet definitive. That's why it is essential to consult with a qualified specialist, preferably one who utilizes the most generally effective, harmless, and pleasant method of acupuncture for vision problem treatment. We are proud to have such a licensed professional at the Life Balance Clinic in Chicago, IL.

Does Acupuncture Work for Eyesight?

Acupuncture has now emerged as a classic method for treating eye diseases. There are certain acupuncture points for eye problems, which are located on the body, head, and extremities.

Stimulating these points sends signals to the corresponding nervous centers, facilitating repair and recovery processes in the eyes.

Depending on the type of eye disease, various acupuncture techniques and styles can be employed, such as:
