22 Mar. 2021. When it is about physical and mental well being, how can you ignore eyes? It is through your eyes that you cherish the visual pleasures of the world. Aging, infections, injuries, or genetic disorders rob your vision. Common eye treatments include the use of glasses, lenses, laser treatment, surgery, eye drops. PEMF therapy for the eye is an innovative concept that offers a galaxy of benefits to your mind and body, including your eyes.
How Do the Eyes Function?
Eyes maintain a healthy vision through balanced blood flow and eye pressure. Iris and pupil monitor light passing through the cornea. This light falls on the retina. The retina contains photo-receptor cells, rods, and cones. These cells perform the crucial task of Photo transduction, converting light into electric signals and send them to the brain through the optic nerve.
Any obstruction in the path of light or its detection results in poor vision. It regulates micro-circulation in the eye, reduces inflammation, and facilitates self-regeneration in nerves. PEMF supports wound healing, cellular metabolism, and cell proliferation. So it can also cure the root causes of eye diseases which are diabetes and hypertension.
PEMF Therapy for Cataract
A cataract is a condition when there is an accumulation of some protein or pigment on the lens. So there is less transmission of light on the retina, causing blurriness, cloudiness of lens, and scattering of light. PEMF can help to cure and prevent cataracts in the following ways.
Increasing microcirculation in eye
Reducing oxidative stress
Maintaining the flow of fluids and nutrients
and reducing pigment accumulation on lens
PEMF for Glaucoma
Damage to the optic nerve results in glaucoma. Aqueous humor is a fluid that maintains the pressure and shape of the eye. It facilitates the transportation of nutrients in and of pathogens out of the eye. At the base of the cornea and iris lies the drainage network of an eye. A minor blockage in the drainage network (open-angle glaucoma) builds up pressure on the optic nerve. A major obstruction in the drainage network (closed-angle glaucoma) leads to loss of vision. PEMF can be helpful in the following ways.
Improves circulation in eyes and smooth flow of aqueous humor
Restores natural pressure of the eye
Unblocks drainage network by reducing edema
Regenerates nerve fibers and neurons
PEMF for Macular Degeneration
Macular degeneration is the distortion in vision that occurs due to the gradual degeneration of cone cells in the macula. The condition leads to poor image detection. The macula is a small area in the middle of the retina. The major factors are mitochondrial dysfunction, hypertension, obesity, high cholesterol. The accumulation of cellular debris in the macular causes damage to the photoreceptors cones. Certain PEMF systems are available in the market having special features to reverse the condition. It prevents the progression of macular damage by
Regenerating neural tissues
Enhances removal of wastes
Increases oxygenation reducing oxidative stress
Improves cellular metabolism and cures mitochondrial dysfunction
PEMF and Retinitis Pigmentosa
Retinitis pigmentosa is a genetic disorder of the eye in which there is a supply of irrelevant protein to the retina. Rods cells are abundant in the outer layer of the retina. They detect light in a dim environment. The disease causes damage to rods; as a consequence, and the patient starts losing night and peripheral vision. The damage starts accessing the cones and results in the initiation of day-time vision-loss. Researches prove that PEMF results in improved visual performance in RP patients as
Improves the light sensitivity of patients
Treats the choroid ischemia (reduced supply of blood choroid)
Reverses cells degeneration
Enhances ATP production to provide energy to cells
Initiates nerve sprouting
PEMF machines are safe to use for sensitive parts like the eyes. You can choose any device depending on your condition. Many light-weight, handy devices available in various forms as patches or even PEMF glasses.
Besides eye diseases, PEMF therapy for the eyes provides an easy, painless, economical, and time-saving solution for overall eye health.
