Zhou, D., "Hand and Foot Reflex Area Massage in the Treatment of Senile Cataract: Observation of 10 Cases." 1993 China Reflexology Symposium Report, Beijing : China Reflexology Association, page 70.
10 patients, both male and female, from 58-73yrs old, senile cataracts were given 20 days of foot reflexology. Most patients received 2-3 courses and all showed improvement in eyesight.
Foot and hand reflexology may improve body microcirculation, which may improve nutritional supply and waste drainage of the lens. Foot and hand reflexology were shown to be effective for the relief of cataracts.
