Abstract

We studied the effect of electrical stimulation of the visual analyzer (evoking a phosphen phenomenon, the phosphen-electrostimulation, PES) on the visual functions, hemodynamics in the eye and brain, and general immune reactivity; the examined group Included patients afflicted with myopia. It was shown that the main visual functions, like visual keenness under normal and mesopial illumination conditions, accommodation reserves, and light sensitivity, improved under the influence of PES. Circulation in the eye and brain was intensified, as was shown by improvement of the brain blood supply via the main arterial pools and blood supply of the eye via the uveal tract, with a simultaneous decrease In the vascular tone. In addition, PES caused evident total optimization of the immuno-regulatory Processes in an organism.
