Treatment of glaucoma with traditional Chinese Medicine

Abstract: the treatment of acute glaucoma is to use drugs to reduce the excessive pressure in the eyeball; At the same time, patients with acute glaucoma are generally more suitable for surgical treatment, that is, corner resection, to prevent excessive intraocular pressure from damaging the optic nerve and causing vision or visual field loss.

and “glaucoma” are diseases that cause optic nerve damage. The optic nerve is composed of many nerve fibers. When the intraocular pressure increases, it can lead to nerve fiber damage and visual field defect. Glaucoma is one of the eye diseases that can cause irreversible permanent “blindness”, and has become the second largest blinding disease in the world. The incidence rate of incidence rate incidence of glaucoma in China is 0.68%. In the general population, the incidence of glaucoma is increasing. With the increase of age, the incidence rate of

is higher. The incidence rate of people over 40 is over 2%, while that of 4%-7% is 65. Most patients have no symptoms at the initial stage, but their visual field gradually narrows. If they fail to see a doctor in time, the patient’s optic nerve will be further damaged, and this damage is irreversible, which will lead to blindness in severe cases. Experts said that glaucoma is a lifelong progressive and irreversible blinding eye disease. In the initial stage, there are often no major symptoms. Many people just start to feel some eye swelling. When it affects life and needs medical treatment, they are often more serious patients. The pathogenesis of glaucoma is very complex, but for most people, high intraocular pressure is a high-risk factor for glaucoma. Generally speaking, continuous “high intraocular pressure” causes damage to the optic nerve, resulting in narrowing of the visual field. Once the symptoms of visual field narrowing occur, the visual field can not be expanded again. In short, it is impossible to recover the lost “vision”, and the condition is irreversible. Therefore, when the intraocular pressure exceeds the limit that the internal tissue of the eyeball can bear, causing “optic nerve atrophy” and visual field defect, it is called glaucoma. Early detection is not difficult to cure. Glaucoma is not an incurable disease. “If it can be found early and given appropriate treatment, it can effectively control the disease and maintain valuable vision. The treatment of acute glaucoma is to use drugs to reduce the excessive pressure in the eyeball; At the same time, patients with acute glaucoma are generally more suitable for surgical treatment, that is, corner resection, to prevent excessive intraocular pressure from damaging the optic nerve and causing vision or visual field loss. The treatment of chronic glaucoma mainly uses drugs to control intraocular pressure to prevent intraocular pressure from damaging the optic nerve.
