ABSTRACT
Objectives:
This study investigated the effectiveness of acupuncture and herbal medicine (Gami-banhabakchulchunma-tang) for post-stroke visual impairment.

Methods:
A 79-year-old male with headache, dizziness, visual field defects, and blurred vision caused by a posterior cerebral infarction was treated with acupuncture and Gami-banhabakchulchunma-tang for three months. We used the Numerical Rating Scale (NRS) for each symptom and measured the patient’s eye-movement range.

Results:
Following treatment, the NRS score for headache decreased from 5 to 0, and for dizziness and blurred vision, it decreased from 5 to 1. The NRS score for visual field defects decreased from 5 to 2. The range of the patient’s left and right eye movements both improved, and no adverse side effects were observed during the admission period.

Conclusions:
Korean medical treatment with acupuncture and herbal medicine (Gami-banhabakchulchunma-tang) could effectively treat post-stoke visual impairment.
Key words: cerebral infarction, post-stroke visual impairment, acupuncture, herbal medicine, Korean medicine
