Craniosacral for Healthy Eyes


Amblyopia occurs when one eye has much better focus than the other, which may be due to:
·Imbalance in the muscles that position the eye
·Misalignment in the eye: Crossed eyes or wall eyes
·Difference in the sharpness of vision between eyes
·Any problem with one eye can deprive the child of a clear vision in that eye
Patching of only the ‘good’ eye for extended periods reinforces separation between the eyes (and brain) and creates psychological trauma and resistance. It is also very ineffective and the amblyopic eye often returns to its' pre patched blurred state.
Possible Causes of Amblyopia:
1.     Trauma: difficult birth or accidents causing pressure from the cranial bones on the muscles or nerves innervating the eyes.  Fever, in rare cases a missing muscle, spastic muscle control, nystagmus, strabismus, systemic diseases, infections, paralysis, stroke or eye scarring.
2. Lack of stimulation (infant put in crib with vision blocked off, breast fed on one side, or always put to lie down facing the same way, or born with cataracts or pathology in one or both eyes.
3. Emotional, mental and physical stress causing chronic tension in extrinsic muscles - often a sign that an aspect of the person is split off or dissociated. 
Some optometrists will offer these solutions:
1.     Glasses with “prism” to help turn the strabismic eye straight with lenses.
2.    Glasses to help the amblyopic eye “wake up” or “turn on”
3.    Patching of the “good” eye to make the “lazy” eye work
4.     Surgery.
Glasses can be therapeutic tool, but they do not in themselves enable an individual to integrate visual information from both sides of the brain and do not ultimately strengthen, straighten or help the eyes to work together.  Similarly, surgery can attempt to straighten an eye, however it will not necessarily stay straight, and if it does stay straight and “looks normal”, it does not mean that the eye is fully functional or that the child will be able to achieve stereoscopic (3D vision).
Craniosacral Therapy for amblyopia does not mean a child has one “good” eye and one “bad” eye.  Rather, both eyes typically have reduced visual function -  depth perception, focusing and eye movements are typically lacking in both eyes, not just the amblyopic eye.  Craniosacral can help the eyes regain the fluid nature and help the eye muscles to relax.  It is effective for releasing tension patterns or trauma in the eyes, eye muscles, brain and nerves.  This therapy also helps the bones in your skull to realign especially the sphenoid bone that houses the eye sockets.  The misaligned bones in the skull could be due baby being stuck in utero or to birth process intervention using forceps or vacuum or ceasarean and concussion from a fall in infancy or childhood.

Visual perception is a big category that includes the following:

  • Visual discrimination, or “just noticeable differences”
  • Visual memory
  • Visual sequential memory – remembering a series of objects, letters or numbers
  • Visual figure ground – such as hidden pictures, or finding an object in a busy room, or even attending to the teacher when the room is full of distractions
  • Visual closure – seeing part of the information and inferring the rest of it.
Body knowledge – understanding where I am in space
Bilateral integration – coordinated movement of both sides of the body
Space awareness – understanding where things are in space
Eye-hand coordination – letting vision guide your movement, which is essential for proper handwriting and sports activities
Vestibular / balance – helping the visual system be the “top dog” of the vestibular triad, which helps with motion sickness, car sickness and head injury rehabilitation
