Below you will find some of the more common tcm diagnoses and acupuncture treatment protocols for glaucoma. There are many ways to treat this condition with Eastern Medicine and our presentation is only one of many possible options.
- Etiology & Pathology:
- In glaucoma fluid is not draining properly from the canal of Canal of Schlemm which builds up pressure. Vision begins to fail, loss of small areas of peripheral vision (blind spots). During acute attacks, blurred vision or halos around lights is possible.
- KD Yin Deficiency which leads to LV Yang Rising and then to Wind rising to the head
