Visual Disturbances and other conditions of the eyes include double vision, floaters, blurred vision, macular degeneration, retinal problems, cataracts, eye plain, watery eyes, pink eye (conjunctivitis), eye trauma, and other infections of the eye. In Chinese medicine, the liver is said to open up to the eyes, so any of these eye conditions can be traced back to an imbalance of flow of the qi to the liver. In this way, acupuncture can be very helpful for eye conditions because we can harmonize the flow of energy that goes to the liver, and as a result, improve whatever imbalance is happening to the eye. Furthermore, with acupuncture we can access points directly related to the eye and these points have been used in Chinese medicine for thousands of years to treat eye conditions. If you or a loved one is suffering from one of these conditions, I strongly recommend you to call our Colorado office at (303)636-0000.
