Acupuncture and Eye Conditions

Did you know that acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can be used to effectively treat a number of eye conditions ranging from conjunctivitis and styes to glaucoma and cataracts?

Treatment encourages blood flow and qi (energy) to the eyes and surrounding tissues allowing increased circulation and decreased inflammation, thus enhancing the healing process.

Below is a testimonial from and 67 year old male patient referred to me for double vision due to strabismus.

“Diane was highly recommended to me by a good friend for a recently acquired problem with my eyes. Several weeks ago, at the age of 67, I suffer from strabismus (cross-eyes and double-vision) due to a 6th cranial nerve palsy. Both the ophthalmologist and neuro-ophthamologist suggest that I wait for 2-6 months for the condition to correct itself. I happened to mention my frustration to my friend who suggested that I try acupuncture to help with the healing process. I met with Diane for my first acupuncture treatment after five weeks of dealing with my condition. After the 2nd session my eyesight started to improve and after the fifth session, seven weeks after onset, my sight was nearly back to normal. I believe Diane’s competent care expedited my recovery and I highly recommend her to anybody suffering from this condition.”
