Abstract:

Autotransfusion of ozone venous blood was performed in 174 
patients, in 32 patients ozone was given intraarterially. General 
++ozone therapy was used for the first time in Poland in the 
following ophthalmological conditions: retinal pigment dystrophy, 
glaucomatous optic atrophy, in optic neuritis, after injuries and 
in cases of unknown aetiology; in degenerative-atrophic changes of 
the choroid, in high myopia, in post-inflammatory cases, in other 
degenerative diseases and in bacterial corneal ulcerations. Ozone 
therapy in these conditions seems to be favourable especially when 
the pathological process is not extensive. One could observe an 
improvement of the visual acuity and of the visual field.
