PATIENTS FIND HOPE:
Is Acupuncture for Visually Impaired a Cure? This procedure is not a cure, but may help enhance and restore vision. The treatment for retinal and optic nerve diseases allows healing from the damage resulting from degeneration of the tissue. When normal blood flow is restored to the affected area, the tissue can repair itself – a normal healing response.
WHEN WILL I NOTICE VISION IMPROVEMENT?
Results vary among patients. Although most will show improvement, not all will improve. There are no known side effects from treatment. Many patients have experienced improved vision after the first course of treatment, and as treatments continue, the improvement continues. The greatest improvements are generally seen after about three treatment courses, especially for those with significant vision loss.
VISION TREATMENT PROCEDURE
Each treatment varies depending on the area affected, such as the retina, brain or optic nerve. Some treatments involve newly discovered points on the hands and feet that are not associated with other acupuncture systems. Two additional points located in the eyebrow, along with the above points can increase blood circulation to the retina in the eye.
WHAT IS THE SUCCESS RATE FOR ACUPUNCTURE VISION TREATMENT?
More than 95% of those treated realized improved vision. This specialized form of acupuncture is one of the most effective treatment options for degenerative eye diseases. Thousands of people worldwide have been helped and given hope.
