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

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.

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.

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
