Ms. G is one of them who suffers from glaucoma for years. She has been receiving acupuncture to control her intraocular pressure, IOP over the past few years until pandemic hit her life. Her residency complex was locked down between March and July 2020. Her eye pressure gradually jumped above 21 in both sides. Her eye doctor recommended she continue acupuncture to see whether it can do the magic again.
She resumed biweekly acupuncture treatment at the end of July and noticed some improved at the end of September. Treatments continued and she had an annual eye exam yesterday. To her surprise, her IOP dropped down to 17 in both eyes. She is not alone, there were two other patients with glaucoma reported to me that their IOPs have been normal for the last 15 years with regular acupuncture treatments.
