The Raleigh Acupuncture dry eyes treatment works best to resolve dry eyes. Dry eyes are a common condition. They include eyes that can be dry, itchy, irritated, red and inflamed. It’s not a condition limited to dry climates. In North Carolina (a very humid location) we treat patients for dry eyes all the time.

How It Works
Acupuncture works very well to resolve dry eyes. It stimulated the moistening ability of the eyes and gives the body the ability to once again lubricate the eyes with normal tear production. As with many health conditions, small imbalances can lead to big problems. A small imbalance in the eye’s ability to generate sufficient lubricant can lead to the debilitating condition of dry eyes.
There are acupuncture points, both on the face and on the body, that stimulate natural tear production. One very famous point, on the lower leg, has the name “Moisten Eyes”. Chinese medicine is unique in that points far away from the organs have influence over those organs. This is what makes the medicine so safe. We never have to touch the eyes themselves to correct the condition of dry eyes!
What To Expect
Acupuncture is relaxing. You will lie face up on the treatment table. The needles are sterile, stainless steel and single use. They are hair-thin. You will hardly feel them go in. Once you are set on the table, you will feel very relaxed. Many of our patients fall asleep during their treatment, waking up feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
It typically takes between 3 and 6 treatments to improve dry eyes with acupuncture. Many patients will start feeling the difference right away. Others will need a few consecutive treatments. Most importantly, acupuncture has long lasting effect. So as opposed to Western medicines that require constant use, acupuncture heals your body so that you can sustain the healthy, normal production of tears.

What our Clients are Saying
I’ve had dry eyes ever since my Lasik surgery. The doctor said it would resolve but it never did. That was two years ago. I had been using eye drops about ten times a day to deal with the discomfort. My brother-in-law suggested I try acupuncture. It worked great. The doctor said the treatment “returned my eyes to their normal state”. That’s what it feels like to me. And it’s lasted. Thank you Raleigh Acupuncture for your good work.
Ever since moving here five years ago I had terrible dry eyes. I thought it was allergies, but the doctor ruled that out. After trying everything under the sun, I tried acupuncture. What an amazing experience. It’s like my eyes are back to normal when I was living in Chicago. High praise for Raleigh Acupuncture. They know what they are doing!
Acupuncture treatment helped my chronic dry eyes. Whereas I had to use drops on a daily basis before my treatment, afterwards I didn’t need the drops any longer. The scratchy feeling in my eyes was gone, and my eyes were not nearly as red. I’ve sent two co-workers to Raleigh Acupuncture since being treated, both for eye conditions, and they also got relief. I recommend this practice to anyone struggling with dry eyes.
