Treatment of glaucoma with traditional Chinese Medicine

Abstract: Traditional Chinese medicine can be used to treat primary open-angle glaucoma, various secondary glaucoma, poor postoperative intraocular pressure control of primary angle closure glaucoma and congenital glaucoma. The difference between traditional Chinese medicine and other oral antihypertensive drugs is that it can be adjusted comprehensively according to the physical condition. A variety of diseases such as inflammation or bleeding in the eyes can also be treated simultaneously and given comprehensive treatment.

traditional Chinese medicine has a long history of understanding glaucoma. As early as more than 1000 years ago, it was recognized that “the source of this disease is due to the lack of internal hepatic duct and the obstruction of eye holes, which is also in urgent need of early treatment.” At the same time, it is considered that the eyes are closely related to viscera, meridians, Qi and blood. It is necessary not only to treat the affected eyes, but also to adjust the sick body.

the late famous ophthalmologist in China, according to the theory of “opening the liver to the eye”, put forward eight methods for the treatment of primary glaucoma from the liver. Later, his successor inherited and gave full play to his academic thought, achieved good clinical curative effect, and attracted extensive attention in the academic circles at home and abroad. Experts believe that angle closure glaucoma is mainly due to wind heat of liver meridian, inflammation of liver fire and hyperactivity of liver yang; Open angle glaucoma is mostly related to stagnation of liver qi, deficiency of liver yin and deficiency of liver and kidney yin. It is often treated by soothing liver and clearing heat, promoting dampness and resolving phlegm, clearing liver and purging fire, calming liver and latent Yang, soothing liver and relieving depression, softening liver and nourishing Yin, tonifying liver and kidney, etc. Traditional Chinese medicine can be used to treat primary open-angle glaucoma, various secondary glaucoma, poor postoperative intraocular pressure control of primary angle closure glaucoma and congenital glaucoma. The difference between traditional Chinese medicine and other oral antihypertensive drugs is that it can be adjusted comprehensively according to the physical condition. A variety of diseases such as inflammation or bleeding in the eyes can also be treated simultaneously and given comprehensive treatment. However, traditional Chinese medicine, like western medicine, can not fundamentally solve the problem of atrial angle obstruction. Surgical treatment should be considered for primary angle closure glaucoma and congenital glaucoma. Continued taking traditional Chinese medicine after operation is helpful to improve vision and protect the optic nerve.
