Optic Atrophy

An eye disorder that gradually degenerate the vision acuity. At the early stage there is only blurring of vision, but later stages the possibility of eyesight lost. It’s a unique window into health. It is the only place in the body where, without surgery, we can look in and see veins, arteries and a nerve [the optic nerve]. The eyes’ transparency explains why common eye diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration can be detected early with regular eye exams. The Symptoms of optic atrophy are a change in the optic disc and a decrease in visual function. This change in visual function may decrease in sharpness and clarity of vision (visual acuity) or decreases in side (peripheral) vision. Color vision and contrast sensitivity can also be affected.
The causes may range from trauma to systemic disorders, tissue death of the nerve that carries the information about sight from the eye to the brain.optic
•Deficiency of the kidney and liver leads to consumption of the essence and blood that nourish the eyes.
Main manifestations: Dryness of the eyes, blurred vision, dizziness, tinnitus, nocturnal emission, aching of the lower back, thready and weak pulse, reddened tongue with scanty coating.
Analysis: Dryness of the eyes and blurred vision are due to failure of the essential nutrients to nourish the eyes in deficiency of the liver and kidney. The limbus is the seat of the kidney. When the kidney is in a deficiency state, there is aching of the lower back. Deficiency of the kidney may lead to nocturnal emission when there is hyperactivity of the asthenic fire and to dizziness and tinnitus when there is yang preponderance. Thready and weak pulse, reddened tongue with scanty coating is a sign of yin deficiency.
•Dysfunction in transportation and transformation of the spleen due to irregular diet and over strain results in inadequate supply of the essential nutrients for the eyes.
Main manifestations: Blurred vision, weakness of breathes, disinclination to talk, lassitude, poor appetite, loose stools, thready and weak pulse, and pale tongue with thin white coating.
Analysis: The essential qi of all the zang-fu organs flows up to the eyes. When qi and blood in a deficiency state cannot nourish the eyes, the vision becomes blurred. Qi deficiency of the spleen and stomach causes weakness of breath, disinclination to talk, lassitude, poor appetite and loose stools. Thready and weak pulses, pale tongue with thin and white coating are signs of deficiency of qi and blood.
•Dysfunction of the liver with stagnation of qi and blood in emotional troubles causes failure of the essential qi to flow upwards to nourish the eyes.
Main manifestations: Blurred vision, emotional depression, dizziness, vertigo, hypochondriac pain, and bitter taste in the mouth, dry throat and string-taut pulse.
Analysis: The liver has its specific body opening in the eyes. Stagnation of the liver qi causes general obstruction of qi and blood that fail to ascend to nourish the eyes so the blurred vision.  The Liver meridian passes by the hypochondriac region, so there is hypochondriac pain when the liver qi is stagnated. Retarded qi may turn into fire, which flares up to cause dizziness, vertigo, bitter taste in the mouth and dry throat. String-taut pulse is the sign of a liver disease.
But blurred vision in a diabetic means: Diabetics are at increased risk for several eye problems, including glaucoma and cataracts. But the most common threat to vision is diabetic retinopathy, where the diabetes affects the circulatory system of the eye. It’s the leading cause of blindness. The changes linked to diabetic retinopathy tend to show up in people who have had the disease for a long time, not those recently diagnosed. The person may also see “floaters,” tiny dark specks in the field of vision. Sometimes diabetes causes small hemorrhages (bleeding) that are visible in the eye. There’s no pain. People with poorly controlled blood sugar may have worse symptoms.  Someone with diabetes should have a dilated eye exam annually to catch and control the earliest stages of retinopathy, glaucoma, cataracts or other changes—before they manifest as changes you’re aware of.
There are other unrelated causes of optic atrophy is poor blood flow, called ischemic optic neuropathy, which most often affects the elderly. Shock, various toxic substances, radiation, and trauma can also damage the optic nerve. Various eye diseases, most commonly glaucoma, can also cause optic nerve atrophy. In addition, diseases of the brain and central nervous system, such as cranial arteries sometimes called temporal arteries, multiple sclerosis, brain tumor, and stroke, can cause the condition.
One should apply to reinforce the liver and kidney and nourish qi and blood by tonifying method. Even movement is applied to the same meridian to remove the stagnation of the liver qi.
Acupuncture ‘Onnuri SuJok’ ~ an important aspect of concept is that it allows taking into account an individual characteristic manifested in own energy constitution. This brings about an effective action on the very origin of disease. Besides, there are practically no contradictions for use of Onnuri SuJok. It’s a traditionally accomplished through insertion of very fine needles at the certain energy meridians in miniature form of the hands or feet. The course of treatment definitely sprouts the results! Meanwhile, may put color dots with permanent marker pen.

Vision Blurred

Vision may be affected when the lens of the eye becomes clouded and may develop cataracts, blindness. And, responsible for letting light rays to pass onto the retina, the lens that is a transparent structure mostly made up of water and protein fibers. When these fibers clumps together, the lens loses its clarity, leading to blurred vision and if left untreated there is likely hood of complete blindness.
Someone is having high blood sugar is damaging to blood vessels, particularly the very small ones that nourish the eye’s retina, a tissue layer at the back of the inner eye. With this condition, known as diabetic retinopathy, vessels become blocked, bleeding occurs, and fluid can leak into the retina. It can cause irreversible loss of vision and is the leading cause of blindness.
Symptom: Blurry Vision, Blurry vision at any distance is the most common symptom of cataracts. Your view may look foggy, filmy, or cloudy. Over time, as the lenses become more clouded, less light reaches the retina. People with cataracts may have an especially hard time seeing at night.
Blurred vision is an ocular symptom. There may be many causes of blurred vision:

• Difficulty focusing on objects that are in close distance and elderly are common victims.
• Glaucoma, increased pressure in the eye, causing poor night vision, blind spots, and loss of vision to either side. It may happen gradually or suddenly, if sudden, then medical urgency required.
• Cataracts; cloudiness over the eye’s lens, causing poor nighttime vision, halos around lights, and sensitivity to glare. Daytime vision is eventually affected and this normally affects aged.
• Diabetic retinopathy, this complication of diabetes can lead to bleeding into the retina. And blindness is another common cause of this
• Macular degeneration, loss of central vision, blurred vision (especially while reading), distorted vision (like seeing wavy lines), and colors appearing faded
• Eye infection, inflammation, or injury
• Floaters, tiny particles drifting across the eye may also be the reason for blurry vision. Although often brief and harmless, and may be a sign of retinal detachment. And symptoms include floaters, flashes of light across visual field, or a sensation of a shade or curtain hanging on one side of visual field.
• Optic neuritis – inflammation of the optic nerve from infection or multiple sclerosis and one may have pain when you move your eye or touch it through the eyelid. Or temporal arteritis that supplies blood to the optic nerve causing inflammation of an artery in the brain
• Stroke or transient ischemic attack
• Brain tumor
• Migraine headaches – spots of light, or zigzag patterns are common symptoms prior to the start of the headache. An ophthalmic migraine is when one has only visual symptoms without a headache.
In any all the above facts, one may get positive results. And dominant energy is involved of meridian Liver. One may put green color dot on the prescribed place having some sort of benefits.
Energy concept that is to restore disturbances in the body’s natural energy through the insertion of very fine needles at certain energy gates in the miniature form of hands or feet.
