Macular degeneration is often referred to as the main cause of loss of vision that has affected millions of people across the globe. As of now, macular degeneration is still regarded as incurable. The cause of this disease brings back from the decline of the retina’s central portion. This central portion is called macula and is the vital part of the eye since it controls its central vision, ability to read, and determine objects in detail.
However, recent studies have shown that acupuncture can improve one’s vision that is already suffering from macular degeneration. It has also been successful when it comes to curing cataract, myopia, astigmatism, and many more. Acupuncture, if uses correctly, can treat many other eye disorders. There are several acupressure points that can help in clearing the eyes. But what if you are too busy to get a treatment and scared of trying home remedies at the same time? Well, there are other ways in order to prevent degenerating of your macula even without the need for acupuncture.
Take a Break
If your work relies heavily on the usage of computer, as most of the work these days require computer literacy and eight hours of working in front of the computer, take a walk. And once you are in the middle of your leisure walk, make sure that you stare at a distance. This can help to use different muscles in your eyes and to avoid straining of the muscles as well. Look for something green because it is true that green relaxes the eyes.
Yes, here we go again with all the antioxidants. What else can we do? These kinds of food just works wonders to the body. Perhaps try to take blueberries, cherries, and pomegranates since these are known to help in protecting the eyes from degenerating its vision. Thus, it can prevent blindness.
This is another antioxidant that can help in reducing damages that affect almost every part of our eyes. Examples of these high lutein food would be leafy green vegetables, eggs, even zucchini, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and green peas help too.
What is a DHA? These are fatty acids that are located in the eyes’ retina. DHA helps when it comes to curing degenerating muscles and such DHA can be found in many animal made products like meat, fish, and eggs. But if you want to intake a higher concentration of DHA, you can most likely find it in mackerel, sardines, salmon, or trout—in other words, they are found in oily and fatty fish.
Lastly, hydrogenated fats are not good for the body and the eyes; therefore, it is best if food that contains this kind of fat shall be avoided. Moreover, nothing beats the magic of the 8-hour sleep. Make sure to also rest your eyes in between while working since it can strain your eyes and cause it to dry. For macular degeneration acupuncture, it is still highly recommended if all the remedies provided turned out to be unsuccessful.
