Source: Klin Oczna, 1992 May-Jun, 94:5-6, 139-40 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.
