The human eye can be compared to a camera which gathers, focuses, and transmits light through a lens to create an image of the environment. Our eyes are vital for seeing the world around us, but vision can be impaired by a variety of medical conditions, as well as the ageing process. Nearly everyone has eye pain or sore eyes at some point. Eye pain sometimes gets better on its own, but it can also be a sign of something more serious.
According to Chinese Medicine, all diseases involving the eye are closely related to the liver. It is also understood that the eye is nourished by all of the internal organs in the body. The lens of the eye and the pupil basically belong to the kidney, the sclera to the lungs, the arteries and veins to the heart, the top eyelid to the spleen, the bottom eyelid to the stomach, and the cornea and iris to the liver. The Spleen and Stomach also control circulation in the eyes. Therefore, an imbalance in any of the internal organs may lead to eye disease.
