Traditional Chinese medicine treatment of glaucoma

Abstract: glaucoma is a disease that causes optic nerve damage. It can cause blindness when it is serious. Western medicine is widely used to treat glaucoma in life, but traditional Chinese medicine also has a good effect on glaucoma. How does traditional Chinese medicine treat glaucoma?

glaucoma belongs to the category of five wind internal barrier in traditional Chinese medicine. Green wind cataract, similar to primary angle closure glaucoma; Qingfeng cataract, similar to primary open-angle glaucoma; Yellow wind cataract, similar to absolute glaucoma; Black wind cataract, also similar to angle closure glaucoma; Black wind cataract, similar to open-angle glaucoma or secondary glaucoma. Many literatures of traditional Chinese medicine have more records on five wind internal barrier, and have a comprehensive discussion on the etiology, pathogenesis and syndrome differentiation and treatment of this kind of disease.

at present, there are four methods of traditional Chinese medicine in the treatment of glaucoma: internal treatment, external treatment, acupuncture and moxibustion and integrated traditional Chinese and Western medicine. 1. Internal treatment: internal treatment emphasizes syndrome differentiation and treatment. Through traditional Chinese medicine treatment, clinical symptoms can be significantly reduced, and some patients can be treated. Generally speaking, traditional Chinese medicine believes that Wufeng cataract is a serious eye disease with poor prognosis. 2. Integrated traditional Chinese and Western medicine therapy: after western medicine controls intraocular pressure, oral administration of traditional Chinese medicine compound or single medicine, intravenous injection of traditional Chinese medicine extract, etc., promote blood circulation, remove blood stasis, strengthen the spleen and promote water, so as to improve the blood supply of glaucoma optic disc, reduce aqueous humor generation or promote the metabolism of optic nerve cells, so as to achieve synergistic therapeutic effect, which is better than western medicine alone. 3. Acupuncture and Moxibustion: Acupuncture and moxibustion has significant analgesic effect on glaucoma, especially in acute attack. At the same time, it may also reduce intraocular pressure to a certain extent, and has synergistic effect with other treatment methods. For middle and late glaucoma, acupuncture and moxibustion can improve visual function. Therefore, acupuncture and moxibustion can be used as one of the treatment methods of glaucoma syndrome. 4. External treatment: ① triptolide II eye drops: it can shrink pupils and reduce blood pressure, and the curative effect is similar to that of pilocarpine. ② Arecoline eye drops: it also has a certain effect of mydriasis and hypotension. Traditional Chinese medicine in the treatment of glaucoma has found a new way for the application of traditional Chinese medicine in the treatment of glaucoma. “Qinghuo Mingmu Decoction” is composed of many precious traditional Chinese medicines such as chuandilong, yuxiangsi, Yangjing, Yuyan and jiukongbei. According to the theory of traditional Chinese medicine, it takes the basic treatment principles of clearing liver fire, dispersing stagnation, tonifying liver and kidney, permeating deficiency heat, soothing liver and regulating qi, cooling liver and calming wind, clearing heat and removing fire, cooling blood and tonifying blood, dispelling wind and relieving pain, Promoting Yang and resolving stagnation, strengthening spleen and stomach, nourishing blood and activating blood, dredging collaterals and brightening eyes as the basic treatment principles, It has strong stability to high intraocular pressure caused by glaucoma; It has a quick effect on pumping pain. Most patients treated with drugs for a course of treatment, the intraocular pressure gradually returned to normal, and the discomfort symptoms were reduced. Continue medication can be cured.
