Acupuncture for uveitis

Uveitis, an inflammation of the uvea, the middle layer of the eye, causes pain, blurred vision and, left untreated, may lead to blindness. Researchers at the University of Vienna ophthalmology and uveitis departments treated five patients with recurrent uveitis by acupuncture.
All patients reported a decrease of pain and increased visual acuity, laser measurement showed decreased inflammation and the period until the next attack was extended by more than six months. (Presented at the 9th Annual Symposium on Complementary Health Care, 4-6 December 2002)
