Ablepsia is a group of eye diseases causing optic nerve damage. It is also called as Glaucoma or amaurosis. The optic nerve carries images from the retina, which is a specialized light-sensing tissue helping us to see an object. In ablepsia, eye pressure plays a role in damaging the delicate nerve fibers of the optic nerve. When a significant number of nerve fibers are damaged, blind spots develop in the field of vision. Once nerve damage and visual loss occur, it is permanent. If the entire nerve is destroyed, it results in blindness.
Ablepsia is a leading cause of blindness in the world, especially in older people. It affects people over 60 years of age.
In the conventional or allopathic system, there is no cure for glaucoma. Laser treatment may be recommended when the oral and topical medicines do not work to lower the IOP. In contrast homeopathic small, magical doses can combat the IOP as well as the further deterioration of the vision. Homeopathy medicines may be used alone or with the eye drops.
