Glaucoma and Acupuncture

Mr. Lin was born in Pompano Beach in a well educated family. He went to Howard University in Boston and became a writer after his graduation. He spends winter time in Boca Raton to focus on his writing and enjoy the sunshine. As a writer, he uses a computer for more than 5 hours a day. At age of 50 years old, he was diagnosed with glaucoma in a hospital located in Fort Lauderdale. His eye pressure can go up to 23, his ophthalmologist in Fort Lauderdale recommend him have laser surgery to reduce the pressure. He started chatting on line with all the people who have laser surgery in different hospitals located in Boca Raton, Palm Beach, West Palm Beach and Delray Beach, hoping he can get satisfied answer from other patients. His conclusion is there is no guarantee about lowering the eye pressure from the long run. Most likely, patients will have scar tissues forms and need another surgery. Sometimes, the scar tissue builds up to the point even 3 to 4 eye drops cannot lower the pressure and the eye pressure can go up to 40 or 60. He has been famous in writing the article on the internet about the medical issues in Boynton Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Coral Springs, Parkland, Pompano Beach and Palm Beach Gardens, he understands if the eye pressure goes up too high, he may loose his eye sight and he can not write anymore. He started doing some research to see if acupuncture and acupressure can help him lower the eye pressure without the surgery. He even bought an 8000 fancy machine to monitor his eye pressure 3 times a day.

Mr. Lin came to Boca Raton acupuncture clinic 3 years ago after he did thorough research on all the acupuncture clinics in Boca Raton, Palm Beach, West Palm Beach, Delray Beach, Boynton Beach, Coconut Creek, Deerfield Beach, Lake Worth, Pompano Beach and Weston areas. He found that Boca Raton acupuncturist has been treating glaucoma for more than 20 years and they also teach people to do the acupressure during the treatment. He started treatment in Boca acupuncture clinic right away after he had gathered all the information about acupuncture and glaucoma. Only after 6 treatments, his eye pressure dropped to 17 from 23. But the eye pressure can go up after a few days if he reads to much. He started acupressure training with his acupuncturist in Boca Raton. Every morning he will measure his eye pressure, meditate and does his eye pressure faithfully. He then uses his machine to measure the eye pressure, which consistently dropped his eye pressure to the normal range. Now he only comes to his acupuncturist every other week to make sure to bring the energy to his eyes and reduce the stress.

I have been taking acupuncture and micro-current stimulation treatments 3x a week for the last 6 months. Traditional therapies can offer no assurance of a cure. Acupuncture and micro-current stimulation show results of stopping and reversing the effects of macular degeneration.
