Many people come to the Brisbane Acupuncture Clinic for treatment of eye conditions ranging from sore eyes to degenerative eye disease.
There is a frightening increase in the incidence of eye conditions and especially degenerative eye disease such as retinitis pigmentosa and macular degeneration. A more common condition that is treated at our acupuncture clinic is dry eyes.
Factors that contribute to eye disease
Some of the factors that contribute to eye problems are the pace and stress of contemporary living and attendant problems such as insomnia. Added to these are factors that put an increasing strain on our eyes such as overuse of mobile phones, television and computers.
The combination of frequent exposure to radiation and screen technologies add to the strain on the eyes resulting from increasing levels of air pollution as we go about our everyday lives.
The advantage of acupuncture for eye conditions
Contrary to popular belief, acupuncture treatment for eye conditions does not involve insertion of needles in the eyes. The reality is that very thin acupuncture needles are placed around the eyes, a process that is pain-free.
The advantage of acupuncture for eye disease is that it uses the natural healing ability of the body to restore the eyes to a healthy condition or to slow the process of eye degeneration.
Acupuncture stimulates the flow of body fluid that carries nutrition to the eyes and energises the immune system of the body. So it is a non-invasive form of treatment for the eyes that actually works to re-build the capacity of the whole body to fight disease and slow degeneration.
