Myopia Alternative Treatment Oceanside, California

Myopia, nearsightedness, or shortsightedness is common vision impairment. You see objects near to you clearly, but things far away appear blurry. It appears when your eyeball is usually longer than normal, or your cornea is curved too steeply. Light is not focused precisely in front of your retina, so the distant objects have a blurry appearance. It usually tends to run in families, especially if both parents are nearsighted.

The best natural myopia treatment in Oceanside is at Makari Wellness. Treatment includes acupuncture, micro acupuncture 48, Chinese herbs, supplements, and nutrition and lifestyle counseling.  Acupuncture for myopia in Oceanside will successfully treat the blood stagnation and blood stasis usually associated with myopia – it can also improve one’s well-being.

Our Oceanside Eye Care Clinics is located at 2111 South El Camino Real Suite 301 Oceanside, CA 92054

How We Treat Myopia at Oceanside Makari Wellness Eye Clinic


A technique of stimulating specific points on the body by inserting thin needles through the skin stimulates the central nervous system. It also focuses on promoting the circulation of Qi and blood around the eyes, and it can successfully boost the overall visual acuity. The number of treatments depends on how well the patient responds to the treatment and the co-existing health issues.

Micro Acupuncture 48

A gold standard in Ophthalmic Acupuncture involves 48 acupuncture points located only on hands and feet. It has a great deal of positive, measurable clinical results, especially in treating eye conditions. The best results are achieved with the combination of Chinese herbs.

Nutrition and Lifestyle Counseling

“Food is medicine, medicine is food,” so a balanced diet, where foods are consumed in proper combinations according to their flavors and natures, will help achieve optimal health. At Makari Wellness, we make individualized health programs to support the immune system, boost overall health, and facilitate healing from illness.

Chinese Herbal Therapy

Chinese Herbs can address unhealthy body patterns that manifest in various symptoms. Herbal formulas are customized and can be taken in the form of teas, pills, tinctures, or syrups. Each ingredient has unique characteristics, so a certified Chinese Herbalist at Makari Wellness will combine them to achieve the best therapeutic effect.


A well-balanced diet can safeguard your eyes, so supplements are only a great addition to it. These supplements are proven to boost eye health: Eyebright, Ginkgo Biloba, Green Tea, Zeaxanthin, Lutein, Vitamins A, C, E, Zinc, and many more. These substances will protect nerve cells throughout the eyes and improve blurred vision.

I started seeing Dr. Woodworth in June 2021 when I was diagnosed at 36 with early macular degeneration. Macular degeneration runs in my family, but no one had been diagnosed so young! I was devastated by this diagnosis and knew I could find a natural way to heal my body. I had done lots of acupuncture in the past and started my search for an acupuncturist that had experience working with eye issues. I stumbled upon Makari Wellness and knew Dr. Woodworth was the man for the job. I drove 3 hours each week to be treated by him. The best advice he gave me was to be patient. He explained that the body heals in trimesters and not to expect much change before the 3 month mark. At the 2 month mark I went in for a scan. No change. Maybe a bit better. I kept at it. 2 months later and there was huge improvement. The lines on my grid were no longer wavy, I could see better when I was driving (especially at night) and my scan showed major improvement. I continued on..

At this point I felt comfortable with the progress of my eyes and my body in general and I asked Dr. Woodworth to change focus to my fertility goals. I was under massive amounts of stress at the time and he patiently worked with me to strengthen my body and helped me to destress my mind. He reminded me that my body would heal in trimesters and to give the process time. I am so glad I did! I am happy to say that I am now pregnant with twins.

I will be continuing my care with Dr. Woodworth throughout my pregnancy and beyond. I understand that my overall health and the health of my eyes will require continued maintenance for the rest of my life. There is better way to support your life’s journey than to support your health! I’m so grateful that I found Makari Wellness. If you are reading this review and are having any doubts at all, let them go. Commit a trimester to Dr. Woodworth. Make the drive. Spend the money. It’s well worth it and I’m sure you will have a positive outcome and it may even change your life.

Find More Information About Myopia : Symptoms, Types, Treatment and Prevention


What is Myopia?

Myopia is a refractive error where your eyeball is longer than normal, or your cornea is too curved. The light is not focused precisely on your retina, resulting in the blurry appearance of the distant objects. It usually starts in childhood and tends to run in families.


Can Acupuncture Cure Myopia?

When you start your acupuncture treatment early, there is a higher chance that you will be cured, and the improved vision is easier to be kept. Acupuncture can improve your naked vision (vision without glasses), improve your corrected vision (vision with glasses), and reduce myopia deterioration.

It promotes the healing of the eyes’ affected structures by stimulating blood and energy flow to the eyes.


What Causes Myopia?

The main myopia causes are the defective structure of the eye, where the light that enters the eye will not focus correctly. This causes blurred distant vision.

Experts are actually not sure what causes myopia. Still, it is believed that it is a mix of hereditary and environmental factors. If you have a parent with myopia, there are higher chances that you will develop it. The risk is even higher if both parents have it. Some of the environmental causes are:

  • Little outdoor time;
  • Lack of physical exercise;
  • Imbalanced diet;
  • Digital eye strain;
  • Smoking;
  • Limited daylight exposure.

Can Adult Cure Myopia Naturally?

There are some things, besides acupuncture, that you can do to boost your eye health and your vision:

  • Eat a balanced and healthy diet like leafy vegetables, carrots, and oily fish. They can aid in maintaining eye health.
  • Exercise regularly to improve the circulation and oxygen flow to the eyes.
  • Get enough sleep to avoid your eyes being overtired and strained.
  • Wear eye protection to keep harmful UV rays from diminishing your eyesight.
  • Take breaks from screen time to prevent digital eye strain.
  • Stop smoking to reduce the risk of many health issues that can negatively impact your vision.

How to Cure Myopia?

There are several treatment options for myopia. Traditional non-surgical treatments include glasses or contact lenses, low-dose atropine drops, orthokeratology, and some types of alternative therapies like acupuncture. During the orthokeratology treatment, you wear special contact lenses during the night to reshape your cornea.

Refractive surgery includes photorefractive keratectomy, where a doctor uses a laser to flatten the cornea’s curve. LASIK is another laser treatment where the doctor peels your cornea, reshapes the tissue underneath and puts the cornea back in place.


What are Myopia Acupuncture Points?

According to TCM, myopia is associated with Qi (life force) stagnation and blood stasis. Stimulating specific acupoints can activate Qi And blood and thus improve one’s well-being. Many local acupoints around the eye and neck area can significantly treat Qi and blood. Some of the most important are:

  • Jingming is the point where the inner corner of the eye meets the nose.
  • Yuyao is in the middle of the eyebrow in the hollow.
  • Chengqi lies directly below the pupil on the infraorbital ridge bone.
  • Zanzhu is located in the crease at the inner ends of the eyebrows.
  • Tongziliao is located on the outer end of the eyebrows.
