Abstract: Traditional Chinese medicine believes that the function of the eyes to see all things depends on the cultivation of the energy of the five zang organs, and the energy of the Zang Fu organs is stored in the kidney. Only when the kidney is full of Qi and the kidney is full of energy, the eyes can get sufficient nutrition and play their normal function.
as the saying goes, “people are always dazzled.”. But throughout the ages, there are many people who are old and clear-sighted. According to historical records, Sun Simiao, a great medical scientist in the Tang Dynasty, attached great importance to eye health care. When he was nearly 90 years old, he was still “listening, seeing and hearing”. Today, with the rapid development of science and technology, there are many elderly people who are not blind and deaf.
in traditional Chinese medicine, presbyopia is called “fear of being far away and near”, which means that the eyes can see clearly in the distance and vaguely in the near. Traditional Chinese medicine believes that the function of the eyes to see everything depends on the cultivation of the essence and Qi of the five Zang and six Fu organs, and the essence and Qi of the Zang and Fu organs are hidden in the kidney. Only when the kidney is full of Qi and energy, the eyes can get sufficient nutrition and play their normal function.
in middle-aged and elderly people, Yin essence is insufficient, and kidney essence begins to decline, so they can’t see near clearly and can’t see far. Some people have headache, eye pain and double shadow. If you do not pay attention to recuperation, hunger and satiety are abnormal, eyesight is overworked, sobbing and melancholy, greed and wanton desire will aggravate the consumption of yin and essence. Yin essence is deficient and Yang inflammation is abundant. The water of Yin essence cannot subdue fire. Yin and yang are in imbalance, and water and fire are not good, resulting in weakened eyesight. In order to prevent the premature appearance and rapid development of presbyopia, we should first abandon bad living habits, have regular daily life, be mentally happy, use our eyes not excessively, and exercise appropriately. The following ten methods can be used for reference:
