By Julian Scott.
This text is a practical manual that can be used by any competent acupuncturist to expand their scope of practice to include disorders of the eyes. The book provides clear, step-by-step guidelines for diagnosis and treatment of a variety of conditions, coupled with a discussion of the results that can be expected. Acupuncture can be easily and successfully used for treating a wide range of eye disorders, from conjunctivitis and hay fever to glaucoma and macular degeneration. For some conditions, such as degenerative diseases of the retina, there is no effective treatment in conventional medicine, while in others, such as acute conjunctivitis, acupuncture offers a cure that is more rapid and effective than other modalities. This text will help more practitioners become familiar with this important aspect of therapy, and help patients learn how helpful acupuncture can be in maintaining and restoring the health of the eyes.
