Acupuncture for Eye Health - AOMA Clinics

Do you suffer from an eye condition? Acupuncture can help.

In traditional Chinese medicine, it is said that the spirit “shows in the eyes and is housed in the heart.” The Liver meridian is often implicated in eye disease as the Liver “opens to the eyes” and is the primary energy flow meridian responsible for supporting healthy vision. Additionally, all internal organs nourish the eyes and all meridians run through the eyes, and can all can impact healthy vision if out of balance.


Acupuncture can be effective at treating a wide range of conditions of the eye. For some conditions, such as macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa, Stargardt’s disease, and other retinal diseases which have no treatment in Western medicine, acupuncture is the treatment of choice. For other diseases, such as cataracts (in the early stage) and chronic (open-angle) glaucoma, acupuncture can be beneficial as an adjunct therapy to Western medical treatment.

In addition to severe or chronic eye conditions, acupuncture can boost overall visual acuity, reduce sensitivity to light, reduce or eliminate eye floaters, blurred vision, and dry eyes, decrease excessive tearing, and heal reddened, swollen, and/or painful eyes.


Acupuncture, the most well-known traditional Chinese medical procedure, is the practice of inserting thin needles into the body at specific points to relieve pain or treat a disease. Acupuncture triggers spontaneous healing reactions in the body, and scientific studies have proven its efficacy for treating inflammation, pain, depression and a host of other disorders.
