    Iritis is inflammation predominantly located in the iris of the eye. The iris is made up of muscular fibers that control the amount of light entering the pupil so that you can see clearly. Blunt trauma to the eye, infections and glaucoma are all causes of iritis. People who suffer iritis may experience pain in the eye or brow region, redness, headache and blurred vision. Acupuncture is profound and people still cannot make sense them all. It is true that acupuncture can help with iritis. According to Traditional Chinese medicine, stimulating these points can correct imbalances in the flow of qi through channels known as meridians. Acupuncture needles are typically made of stainless steel wire. The traditional doctor can apply such needles to stimulate these points to heal iritis. But it is not easy. And the processing is slow and long.

    Iritis is one of the most serious and complicated eye problem that I know so far, so I don't even know how to explain this disease clearly. Iris refers to the circular and pigmented membrane which provides various colors of eyes. It is located in the middle layer of eyes, in front of the vascular membrane. In its center, there is an opening, to control the light entering eyes, which is called pupil. At the beginning stage, people with iritis would have red eyes and some discomforts of eyes. People might get confused by iritis and conjunctivitis. You should keep it in mind that, red eyes with thick secretion, it should be conjunctivitis; red eyes with no secretion, it should be iritis. If you could start get treatment at the beginning stage, it is very possible to cure it. Otherwise, it might cause vision diminishment. The exactly causes of iritis are still not clear, but there are existing cases to treat iritis with acupuncture. You can have a try.

However, that requires good Chinese medicine doctors. Also, you should get medical treatment and antibiotics as well. Just consult a doctor and find pay attention to your rest and diet.
