In February 2018 I got a phone call from a client whose husband just had a stroke in his eye. She asked if Reiki could help restore the vision that he had lost. The doctors had told him that there is nothing that can be done to restore the vision after someone has a stroke to their eye. My response was let’s give it a try and see what happens.
Like a stroke to the brain, a stroke in the eye happens when blood flow is blocked into the retina, a thin layer of tissue that helps you to see. Arteries carry blood to the retina. Without blood flow, the cells in the retina do not get oxygen and they begin to die off within minutes. Damage is permanent or so they say and can come in the form of partial or total blindness in the eye, blurry vision, or blind spots. With this client, he had lost the vision in the lower half of his right eye. What made matters worse is that a few years earlier, he had had surgery on his left eye and the scar tissue distorted his vision in that eye.
After the stroke to his eye, his vision was impaired so much that he could no longer drive. His job required that he travel by plane and he felt very insecure about flying by himself. He then required someone to go along with him on the trips.
At first, we did two Reiki sessions a week to jump start his healing process. Then we moved to once a week. The feedback that I would get initially would be that his stress levels regarding the situation were lowering and that Reiki was helping him with his quest to quit smoking. After three months his wife told me that he had noticed that his field of vision in the lower right eye had increased. He noticed that he could see more. As the weeks passed his vision has continued to increase. Here we are in December and we continue our weekly sessions. His wife just called to tell me that her husband had driven himself to work. His vision had improved well enough that he felt confident to drive.
With most eye issues that I work with, Reiki is usually needed over an extended period of time to make a difference. The client needs to be dedicated to the process and to allow time and Reiki to assist their body to find balance and to repair energetic pathways to restore vision. With eye issues, the sooner Reiki is started after the eye issue is diagnosed or developed, the better chances for Reiki to make a difference.
