How We Treat Cataract at Makari Wellness of Oceanside, CA


An imbalance in the body can show up as an eye disease. With acupuncture, the imbalance that causes the problem will be addressed. Eye acupuncture focuses on promoting the blood flow and the circulation of Qi around the eyes. As a result, some studies show a significant improvement in overall eye health.


As a great addition to the acupuncture treatments, supplements for eye health usually include fish oil, Lutein, Zeaxanthin, L-Taurine, Gingko Biloba, Bilberry, etc. However, they only supplement your overall nutrition, but they do not take the place of it. So, to get all the benefits of the vision supplements, ensure to have a well-balanced diet.

Makari Wellness : Common Eye Treatments at our Oceanside Location

Along with cataract symptoms treatment, our eye care clinic in Oceanside, CA successfully treats many eyes degenerative conditions.

Retinal Detachment Treatment

Traditional Chinese Medicine can help with retinal detachment BY triggering spontaneous healing reactions in the body. In addition, acupuncture, Micro Acupuncture 48, Chinese Herbal Therapy, and nutrition and lifestyle counseling can ease symptoms of retinal detachment.

Glaucoma Treatment

Recovering the entire body and retrieving the balance are the main goals of Eastern medicine in treating glaucoma symptoms. A certified acupuncturist can help improve the whole body’s nerve conductivity and blood flow, not only in the eyes.

Macular Degeneration Treatment

Micro Electro Stimulation, in addition to regular acupuncture treatment, can awake dormant cells and stimulate tissue repair. At the same time, herbal medicine can help in strengthening the entire body, including the eyes.

Retinitis Pigmentosa Treatment

Stopping the progression and treatment of symptoms of RP are some of the advantages of Traditional Chinese Medicine. When treated in the early stages, the signs of the RP can be significantly improved.

Diabetic Retinopathy Treatment

Diabetes can damage the eyes, so diabetic eye disease is not rare. Micro Acupuncture 48 can help your body build its own stem cell activity up to 300%, which is vital for vascular and photoreceptor nerve regeneration.

Optic Neuritis Treatment

Swelling and inflammation of the optic nerve can be successfully treated with alternative treatments to improve the conductivity of the optic nerve and increase the blood flow to the eye.

Lazy Eye Treatment

The eye with amblyopia does not have the proper nerve connection with the brain, so natural treatments at Makari Wellness tend to improve the eye’s circulation and stimulate retinal nerve growth. All this leads to improved nerve conduction and bioelectricity in the brain’s optical center.

Myopia Treatment

Nearsightedness as an eye focusing disorder can be treated by TCM. The main goal of the alternative treatments is to treat the root of the problem by improving oxygen supply and blood circulation in the retina.

Acupuncture Ophthalmology Oceanside

In this video, Michael explains the basic principles of ophthalmology acupuncture. It works by treating the person, not the disease. The acupuncture improves nerve conductivity in the eye, and also improves the eye blood circulation. It is possible to stop the progression of the disease, and even reverse it, but it largely depends on the severity of your condition and your lifestyle.

Vision/ Eye Program Price and How to Prepare for The First Visit

After completing the initial course of treatment, acupuncture ophthalmology treatments are $100 individually. We have discounted this rate following the trials of 2020/2021, normally $125. Pre-pay packages includes 1 month of custom herbal formula and 1 month of vision supplements. (value $200-300).

What is a Cataract?

A cataract is the cloudiness of the lens which should normally be clear. This is because the protein builds up in the lens, preventing the light from passing through clearly. As the cataract continues to form, the opaque area becomes denser and bigger.


What Causes Cataracts?

Cataracts are usually age-related eye disorders. There is a higher chance of having a cataract if someone in your family has it. People with diabetes are at higher risk of cataract development. Further on – smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, UV radiation, and low levels of antioxidants like Vitamin E, C, and carotenoids can lead to cataracts.


Types of Cataracts

There are several different types of cataracts:

  • Nuclear cataract – the most common type. It affects the center of the lens and tends to darken with age.
  • Cortical cataract – forms on the cortex, an outside edge of your lens. Its first symptom is glare, but later, you can have difficulties telling similar colors apart.
  • Posterior subcapsular cataract – it affects the close-up vision and forms inside the back of the lens capsule.
  • Anterior subcapsular cataract – forms in the front of the lens capsule, which can be caused by eczema or different injuries.

What are the Symptoms of Cataract?

Signs of cataracts develop very slowly over the years. As time passes, you may notice several cataract symptoms:

  • Double vision;
  • Sensitivity to light;
  • Difficulties in night vision;
  • Blurred vision;
  • Nearsightedness;
  • Fading or yellowing of colors;
  • Dim or clouded vision;
  • Contact lenses and eyeglasses are not working well.

Are Cataracts Hereditary?

Symptoms of cataract in eye may occur at birth or in early childhood. However, they are extremely rare, with the frequency of 30 cases among 100,000 births.


How Can Acupuncture Help With Cataract?

Early cataract symptoms can be treated with acupuncture. Although surgery is the most common option, people are not aware of the benefits of non surgical cataract treatment options. Cataract acupuncture stimulates the flow of Qi, a life force that runs through meridians. Correcting the imbalance of Qi promotes the body’s own healing mechanisms.


How to Cure Cataracts Naturally?

TCM as a non surgical cataract treatment offers a gentle and natural cataract cure and, what is more important, prevention. Acupuncture can strengthen eyes prone to cataracts, helping in slowing down the speed of progression of this condition. The earlier you start the treatment, the more effective it will be in relieving the symptoms of cataract. Chinese herbal therapy includes herbs for blood activation and circulation improvements, like peach seed, safflower, angelica root, red peony root, and many more.


How to Avoid Cataracts?

Eye cataract are the leading cause of blindness among people over 55 years. The best cataract natural treatment option includes, as we mentioned, acupuncture, Micro Acupuncture 48, Chinese herbal medicine, and nutritional counseling. As far as nutrition and lifestyle changes are concerned, it is advisable to:

  • Stay hydrated;
  • Quit smoking;
  • Wear sunglasses;
  • Have a healthy diet full of antioxidants, especially lutein and zeaxanthin;
  • Eat oily fish full of Omega-3 fatty acids like salmon, tuna, mackerel, sardines;
  • Consider consuming bilberry and turmeric, as they are shown to reduce the risk of cataract development.
