Western Medicine tends to treat eye conditions very differently then how Eastern medicine treats it. The eye in Western medicine is treated as an isolated organ and decline of vision is said to be a natural process that at best will either stabilizes or get worse. The Eastern viewpoint deals with the body as a whole instead of individual parts. Chinese medicine treats the problem as both an eye issue as well as a whole body problem. This can help get at the root cause of why you developed the condition in the first place and create a longer lasting and more effective treatment protocol.
