I have severe myopia accompanied by astigmatism. My vision is 20/600, meaning that how a person 20/20 vision views an object that is 600 feet away, is how it appears to me when it is 20 feet away.
I have been wearing glasses since the 2nd grade, and contact lenses since the 9th grade. I cannot afford a pair of glasses, so wear my contact lenses during all waking hours. This greatly concerns me, regarding the ability of my eyes to breathe properly.
I am reading a book called "Take off your glasses and see" by Jacob Liberman, O.D., Ph.D. He details the many methods one might employ in self-healing of vision problems, like myopia. The difficulty arises in me following his suggestion to take off my lenses -- in such extreme myopia, it's not as easy as it is with his patients with 20/200 vision, who attempt to make do in the unfamiliar, blurry world they find when they remove their lenses. His suggestion is to find a behavioral optometrist willing to prescribe a weaker set of lenses, but this is not an option for me, as I could neither afford it, nor do I have such a practitioner in my area.
Though I have studied acupuncture, I did not complete a program, therefore acupuncture treatment is not an option for me. However, I am proficient in Tui Na and also energy healing.
Can someone recommend areas I can massage, or use Tui Na, that are known to assist in the healing of myopia? It appears from my reading that tantric yoga and other forms of meditation have been known to heal myopia. However, my CAM does not delineate points or meridians known to treat myopia.
Is myopia considered a curable condition, in the TCM framework? If so, what points or areas might I attempt to massage?
Any feedback would be so greatly appreciated.
