Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that cause damage to the optic nerve and retina when pressure in the eye increases. The anterior chamber in the front of the eye contains a clear fluid that flows continuously in and out of the eye, nourishing the tissues inside the chamber. If the fluid does not flow out of the eye at the proper rate, pressure inside the eye increases, causing damage to the optic nerve and retina. Controlling and maintaining a healthy pressure is essential for healthy vision. Increased pressure is not the only reason people lose vision from glaucoma. Some have normal pressure but still lose vision as they require lower than normal pressure. In many cases, blockage causes an increase in pressure.
Arkansas Acupuncture Center's glaucoma treatment for visual impairment helps patients by restoring normal blood flow to the retina and optic nerve so that the eye can begin to heal. It can help reduce pressure but it is essential for patients to continue with their conventional treatment regimen for maintaining normal pressure in the eye.
The retina consists of millions of cells that regenerate on a daily basis. By restoring better circulation to the eyes, the eyes have a chance to heal. Acupuncture can do just that – encourages the body function the way it was meant to, and healing is part of the body’s normal functioning.
“How much better could you do than to help give folks back their sight. I will always be thankful that the answer to my prayer was acupuncture for my glaucoma. “ -Diane Allen, Mena Arkansas
