Patients with

and

suffer from physical deficiency, deficiency of liver and kidney, and inability of Yin essence to penetrate into the eyes, resulting in dry eyes, blurred vision, yin deficiency and yang hyperactivity, so they are dizzy and dizzy.

and

Mr. Zhang believes that seeing things clearly is related to the functions of the viscera. For example, in Lingshu · Da Hun Lun, “the essence of the five zang organs and six Fu organs are focused on the eyes, and the essence is the essence, and the nest of the essence is the eyes”, which shows that the essence of the viscera is concentrated in the eyes, so that the eyes can give play to the purpose of seeing things wisely. If the viscera function is weak and its essence cannot be raised in the eyes, eye diseases such as unclear vision can occur.

in the application of traditional Chinese medicine, according to the theory of traditional Chinese medicine, wind wheel belongs to liver and water wheel belongs to kidney, so it often takes nourishing liver and kidney as the root treatment, and Liuwei Dihuang pill is often used as the bottom formula. If there is Yin deficiency and yang hyperactivity, Gastrodia elata, uncaria, cassia, Vitex, peppermint, etc. are all products to calm the liver and latent Yang, which are used to treat severe dizziness and obvious yang hyperactivity, Cassia has the functions of clearing the liver, brightening the eyes and defecating; If the vertigo is serious, add the agent of dispelling wind, soothing liver and brightening eyes. Tribulus terrestris, cicada sloughing and snake sloughing are often used to dispel wind, brighten the eyes and remove the haze. Old Zhang also uses a large number of blood activating and blood stasis removing drugs, such as Angelica sinensis, Chuanxiong, safflower, peach kernel and Salvia miltiorrhiza, to enhance the blood supply for the eyes. The so-called “blood can be seen by the eyes”.

and

Zhang believed that all the twelve meridians are connected to the eyes, but the liver and kidney meridians are the most important. Therefore, this syndrome should mainly nourish the liver and kidney, and nourish the spleen and stomach to Nourish Qi and blood. Therefore, it should mainly use Ququan and Xiahe points under Yingu, Taixi and Taichong, the original points of liver and kidney to nourish the liver and kidney, and Zusanli and Yinling springs to nourish the spleen and stomach. Local acupoint selection is also very important, such as taking Jingming acupoint to brighten the eyes and remove the haze. The main points are nourishing Yin, soothing the liver and nourishing the kidney, supplemented by clearing the liver, brightening the eyes and removing pannus. The Yin of the liver and kidney can be replenished, soothing the liver, regulating qi, unblocked emotions, clearing the eyes and removing pannus, and the eye pressure can be reduced.
