Eye disease, glaucoma.
For inflammatory lesions of the eyes and eyelids, ancient herbalists and medical specialists advise using plantain, horse sorrel, wild garlic, and wild rose. And now in ophthalmology for general and local treatment it is recommended to use herbal remedies.
For more than 60 years, for example, in ophthalmology, an extract from aloe leaves containing biogenic stimulants has been used, which is scientifically justified by academician V.P. Filatov (1934). The extract, administered subcutaneously 1 ml daily for 20-30 days, as well as electrophoresis and phonophoresis, has a high therapeutic effect with progressive myopia, myopic chorioretinitis, chronic and subacute blepharitis, and late complications of eye burns.
Plantain juice has similar properties, bioseed is an extract from the stonecrop of a large, infusion of herb euphrasia officinalis, especially popular recently.
To increase visual function in patients with partial optic atrophy and impaired refraction, plants that stimulate the central nervous system (prickly Eleutherococcus, Schisandra chinensis, real ginseng, Rhodiola rosea) are indicated.
It is even more effective to combine the above plants, for example, to prepare a mixture of equal parts of tincture of Leuzea, Aralia and Eleutherococcus extract for oral administration of 20-30 drops in the morning and afternoon before meals with 50 ml of water. The course of such treatment is 1-2 months.
Herbal medicine stabilizes visual functions in diabetic retinopathy: use infusions and decoctions of birch leaves, lingonberries, chamomile flowers, calendula and chicory root.
Eye disease, glaucoma.
Glaucoma is a chronic eye disease in which there is increased intraocular pressure, constant or intermittent, with the development of trophic disorders in the retina and optic nerve. Distinguish glaucoma primary, congenital, and secondary. The specialist doctor determines the specific form and stage of the disease. Quite often, glaucoma develops after 40 years.
Glaucoma is a common and dangerous eye disease. In the initial stages, periodic blurring of vision is observed, rainbow circles around light sources, then a gradual decrease in vision occurs. The disease lasts for years, it can have a stagnant and simple form, as well as periodic attacks.
Glaucoma treatment should be carried out under the supervision of an oculist. You should start it as soon as possible.
Drug treatment of glaucoma is carried out in three directions: reducing intraocular pressure, improving blood supply to the inner membranes of the eye and the optic nerve, as well as normalizing metabolism in the tissues of the eye to stop degenerative processes.
