Needles around eyes are safe and effective. They increase nerve and blood supply in the back of the eye, revive some damaged cells and relax the local muscles to improve vision.I use acupuncture to treat following conditions successfully:
Retinal disorders such as Age-related macular degeneration, Retinitis pigmentosa.
Disorders of ocular muscles, binocular movement, accommodation and refraction such as Crossed eye or Wandering eye.
Visual disturbances and blindness such as lazy eye.
Patients feel sore and distention around eyes during treatment but no sharp pain. After treatment they feel very comfortable at eyes. Symptoms of dry eyes, blurred vision, fatigue of eyes, night blindness will improve after 4-5 treatment for most cases. So don’t be afraid of the needles around eyes. The more you are relaxed, the easier for you to enjoy the treatment.
