Causes of the disease, prevention, treatment with herbs and exercises.

Our eyes are windows into the world around us, arranged by God wisely and perfectly! A healthy person does not suspect that perfectly balanced self-cleaning processes are constantly taking place in them. Intraocular fluid is produced in exact accordance with the needs of our vision. It moisturizes the lens and serves as a transport medium for the delivery of nutrients.

An imbalance in production and a violation of the circulation of intraocular fluid lead to a serious illness — glaucoma. Excess fluid compresses the eye tissues, damages them and gradually leads to loss of vision.

Glaucoma is insidious. In some people, it develops over time, while others inflict an unexpected blow in the form of an acute attack. Hereditary predisposition is another dangerous weapon of this disease.

Symptoms of Glaucoma Disease

Home diagnosis of glaucoma is a futile business, as it often disguises itself as other diseases. Her attacks are accompanied by headache and eye pain, giving in the teeth or ears, a decrease in visual acuity. Identify this disease can only be an eye doctor who has equipment for measuring intraocular pressure.

In the initial stages, glaucoma manifests itself in periodic «blurring» of vision. Many patients attribute this symptom to physical overstrain, loss of strength, and poor health. Attacks pass in a few days and the person calms down. Losing valuable time, he dooms himself to a difficult and protracted fight against glaucoma.

Prevention and treatment of glaucoma

Since the roots of glaucoma can be hidden in a hereditary factor, the first step in its prevention (and treatment) is very simple. You need to ask your closest relatives if any of them suffered from this disease.

If the answer is yes, the following measures should be taken:

— Having reached the age of 35, regularly visit an optometrist.

— Sleep on a high pillow so as not to provoke an increase in intraocular pressure.

— Try not to overwork your eyes.

— Avoid stress.

— Do not wear glasses with highly darkened glasses.

— Avoid homework requiring a low torso.

— Exclude smoked, salted and spicy foods, alcohol, strong tea and coffee from the diet.

— Increase the use of dairy products, berries, fruits and vegetables.

The second «line of defense» passes through a flowering field of medicinal herbs. They are able to provide real assistance in the prevention and treatment of glaucoma.

Proven recipes of traditional medicine include the following monotherapy and herbal remedies:

Physical therapy for eyes with glaucoma

With glaucoma caused by a violation of the outflow of intraocular fluid, it is necessary to do several simple exercises daily:

1. Slowly move your gaze from bottom to top and back (5-6 times). The exercise should be repeated 3 times, taking breaks of 5-7 seconds.

2. Without tension, we look from right to left and back, without turning our heads. Repeat 2-3 times.

3. We perform slow circular movements with our eyes (without turning our heads), trying to capture all surrounding objects with our eyes. The rotation should alternate clockwise and counterclockwise.

4. We put the index finger in front of our eyes at a distance of 25-30 cm. For a few seconds we fix the look on it. After that, we look at a large object 3-4 meters away. We look at it for a few seconds and again look at the finger. We do the exercise 8-10 times, rest for 10-15 seconds and repeat another 20 times.
