How emotions affect our eyes

A few days ago I read a very interesting article in the Wall Street Journal titled, “Is It Love or Mental Illness? They’re Closer Than You Think” Science is beginning to pay more attention to the chemical storm emotions can trigger in our brains, with recent studies showing that being in love is similar to serious health problems like drug addition!  WSJ.com – Is It Love or Mental Illness? They’re Closer Than You Think*

This article stimulated  me to begin to write a newsletter for you that discussed emotions and how they relate to eye disease.  Dr. William Bates an Ophthalmologist who practiced in 1912 felt that all disease was caused by stress and by  reducing stress you could cure any eye disease. Hard to believe! Preposterous? I felt this way when I was doing my residency in Ophthalmology. The only way to treat disease was through drugs and surgery! How wrong I was at this time. My thoughts regarding Dr. Bates begin to change when I read The Art of Seeing by Aldous Huxley the famous science fiction writer (Brave New World and Doors of Perception) Huxley had horrible eye sight and during part of his life he had to read Braille. He traveled from clinic to clinic being told the same thing – nothing can be done. Then met a student of Dr. Bates and was instructed to do  a simple exercise calledpalming several times a day. He reduced his stress by this technique and dramatically improved his vision.

As a Homeopathic doctor and Ophthalmologist I look very closely at  emotions as a possible cause of eye disease. Part of initial evaluation is to do a Nakatani Energy Analysis. This test measures the energy meridians that travel through the body. The classic Meridians are Liver/Gallbladder, Kidney/Bladder, Lung/ Large Intestine and Heart Small Intestine. Each meridian is associated with an emotion and other organ systems. We look very closely to the liver Meridian which has a strong connection to the eye. In Chinese medicine it is stated that the “Eye is the flower of the liver”. The emotion associated with the liver is anger. Emotions with other organ systems are: Kidney/bladder- fear, Lung/ large intestine- grief and heart/ small intestine- joy. Once we understand the organ system is related to the eye problem we can begin supportive therapies to strengthen the organ and indirectly help the vision. Modalities used are nutrition, homeopathy, acupuncture, color therapy and microcurrent.

We also evaluate the color form fields. This is like a standard visual field test but instead of using just white light we use green, red and blue. Each color is associated with an organ system and emotion body. Red is related to the physical body, green the emotional and blue the mental.  We use this information and other data to select a specific spectrum of color therapy to treat the imbalance

The last test used is Kirlian Photography. This test captures the energy emission of the body and is used to determine blockages that need to be treated to help achieve optimum health.

Color therapy to reduce stress

This sounds like something that belongs to interior design and not in the doctor’s office! You may be surprised that there is a long history of color in the treatment of eye disease. A 73 year old institution called the College of Syntonics has investigated color therapy in the treatment of eye disease. Evidence shows that disease is caused by an imbalance in the autonomic nervous system.  The autonomic system has 2 parts the sympathetic and the parasympathetic. The sympathetic responsible for survival or “fight or flight” and the parasympathetic which is responsible for the body sustaining life, like digestion and healing disease. When you are running away from a grizzly bear your body does not care about digesting your food! Stress – yes we have heard of that word – STRESS certainly contributes to disease and stress can also be the fuel that sustains disease and prevents healing.  The mechanism of stress is felt to over-stimulate the sympathetic nervous system and to suppress the parasympathetic. When the parasympathetic system is suppressed the body has a difficult time to heal disease. Healing will not take place unless there is a balance in the autonomic system. Color therapy can help. The red spectrum has been documented to stimulate the sympathetic system.  No we do not want this since most of our life takes care of this very nicely!  The color red has been associated with anger and increase heart rate and an increase in blood pressure. Blue on the other hand will relax the sympathetic system and stimulate the parasympathetic. This is the first step towards healing disease. Think about how relaxing the blue ocean water and blue sky can be!   A vacation to the beach can be very healing.

The College of Syntonics has investigated specific color wave lengths and has studied the affects on eye disease. This research is on-going but data indicates that certain frequencies of blue green light can improve the vision in patients with macular degeneration and certain frequencies of green light can lower the pressures in patients with glaucoma.  The key is “certain frequencies” each color can have a myriad of frequencies and the task is to identify the best frequency that resonates with the eye. This therapy can be compared to microcurrent stimulation. In microcurrent stimulation specific frequencies of low current are administered to the body to treat disease.  Just like ion color therapy the success of the treatment is based on selecting the proper frequency for the patient.

Emotional Healing with Homeopathy 

From early childhood to old age, hurt, pain, trauma and grief can affect us either in subtle ways or in more powerful ways.  The many stages of life can be impacted by varying degrees of stress or suffering that are ultimately expressed and reflected in our approach to life, our philosophy and relationships.  The emotional scars of extreme suffering, such as abuse, are easier to identify but some hurt and pain can be ignored or suppressed such as the loss of a loved one, especially if this happens early in life or the pain is too unbearable to deal with.  With courage and fortitude we plod on with life and push these events burying them deep within.  In the long run, they begin to emerge through physical symptoms as the body attempts to maintain equilibrium and heal itself.  Homeopathy is unique and unlike other forms of medicine in that healing is not limited to the physical level but also the emotional and mental levels.  During an in depth homeopathic consultation, the experienced homeopath meticulously explores the unique journey of the individual patient’s life and a constitutional homeopathic remedy is selected based on the totality of the presenting symptoms of the patient.  Particular attention is paid to the strange, rare and unusual symptoms or sensations that the patient is experiencing.  The correct remedy/medicine can result in the physical cures we are searching for and, in addition, life takes on new meaning.  We may experience richer fuller lives.  The deeper connection with ourselves and our world leads to more peace and contentment and perhaps even a desire to work for the common good and humanity as a whole.  The subtle yet powerful energy of the similimum (most closely matched homeopathic medicine) can be like a light that enters the heart and soul liberating and healing!

in the treatment of


For more than 8 years, Dr. Edward Kondrot, MD (H) has used Microcurrent to treat Age Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD).  Two years ago, he began treating ARMD with Biospecific Digital Frequency Microcurrent (BSDF) with improved results.

Purpose of Clinical Trail beginning December 2006:

 Empirically measure the effects of microcurrent application for the treatment of Macular Degeneration in a randomized controlled clinical study of 100 participants.


  • ARMD Wet or Dry
  • No previous microcurrent treatment for the eye
  • The ability to spend 3 days in Phoenix, AZ

Participants in the trial will receive three days of treatment into a randomized protocol to determine the effectiveness of microcurrent treatment. There will be three treatment groups:

1)     No microcurrent generated

2)     Single channel  with only one frequency

3)     Biospecific digital microcurrent for ARMD

Every participant will receive a Biospecific digital microcurrent unit programmed for ARMD as well as 3 follow-up appointments.  The cost to participate in this study will be at a fraction of our regular 3 day program cost; this includes the price of the take-home unit and all follow-up appointments.

If you or anyone you know has Macular Degeneration and is interested to find out more about this clinical trial, call:
