Introduction: Conjunctival hyperemia (CH) is a reaction that appears as dilation and redness of the conjunctival vessels. In Western Medicine, the CH can be caused by viral or bacterial infections, as well as allergic reactions. The treatment in Western Medicine is based in symptom relief. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the eye is commanded by the energy of the Liver, and the redness linked to conjuctival hyperemia is due to Heat Retention.
Purpose: To demonstrate that chronic conjunctival hyperemia is caused by systemic energy deficiency of the chakra centers, leading to formation of internal Heat manifestating in hyperemia in the conjunctival mucosa.
Methods: Two case reports. First, 12-year-old, boy, with conjunctival hyperemia since 5 years old, making use of eye drops during years. He searched for treatment with auricular acupuncture with apex ear bloodletting, Chinese dietary counselling, and chakras measurement that resulted in level 1 in 8 of energy for all the chakras.
Second, 55-year-old male, the redness in the eyes was noticed in the physical exam. The doctor suggested auricular acupuncture and apex ear bloodletting, as well as measurement of the chakras meridians, that resulted all in 1 in 8.
Results: After the treatment with crystal-based and homeopathy medication, Chinese Dietary Counselling and auricular acupuncture, the redness in the eyes of the first patient gradually decreased diminishing the use of eye drops. The treatment with auricular acupuncture, apex ear bloodletting and Chinese dietary counselling dimished the redness in the eyes of the second patient. The use of crystal-based medications for the chakras was not initiated in the second case.
Conclusion: To better treat the chronic conjunctival hyperemia, it is important to search for the root of the problem, that may be the deficiency of the chakras center meridians, not only treating the symptoms to relieve the discomfort.
