Myopia (nearsightedness) is becoming a major public health crisis and is already having an impact on young people, increasing their risk of developing sight-threatening conditions later in life.
By 2050 there will be almost 5 billion people with myopia globally. Nearly 1 billion will be in the high myopia category, placing them at significantly increased risk of potentially blinding conditions like cataract, glaucoma, retinal detachment, and macular degeneration.
Myopia occurs when the muscles in and around the eyes are tense and strained. Over time, this stretches the eyeball into an elongated shape which causes light rays entering the eye to focus in front of the retina instead of on the retina. This results in blurry vision, nearsightedness. Early detection and treatment of initial myopia is associated with better outcomes of visual improvement and correction.
When you massage and/or acupuncture on the Chinese eye reflexology points, you increase the flow of Qi and blood to the eyes. This helps the eyes receive adequate nourishment and the muscles and tendons to become “softer” and more flexible. As a result, it becomes easier for them to relax and over time, the eyeballs can return to their normal shape.
Wearing glasses is not curing myopia, it’s simply relieving the symptoms. We help change how people, parents and children in particular, perceive this condition, especially the potential consequences to vision later in life if early treatment is not received.
