Macular Degeneration Treatments

What is Macular Degeneration?

Macular Degeneration is deterioration of the central area of the retina, called the macula. The macula is very small, accounting for only 5% of the surface area of the retina. Because it has very special architecture, it makes fine, detailed vision possible; such as seeing features on faces, reading fine print, or seeing street signs while driving. The remainder of the retina provides us with our less detailed vision or peripheral vision.


The Macular Degeneration Treatments

The first step to our Macular Degeneration treatments is to check your vision both near and far.  After this you will have a vision field scan (see below for a description).
After the vision field scan a plan of treatment precise to your needs is created.
We offer comfortable tables and chairs on which to relax for the Macular Degeneration Treatments.  Needles will then be placed in the feet and hands only; positioned according to your vision field scan results.  An average of four to seven needles are place in each foot and two to three in each hand.  The needles are left in place for around 20 minutes and then removed to “recharge” the acupuncture points.  This procedure is then repeated in one to two hour intervals.

After about seven to ten Macular Degeneration treatments a second vision field scan is performed to provide evidence-based results of your treatment.  When improvement is noted you can continue treatments and your vision will slowly regenerate!


What to Excpect From the Macular Degeneration Treatments

Macular Degeneration Treatments are an effective process for reversing vision loss; you are the richest source of information on the effectiveness of your treatment.  We will also help you understand the vision field scan results both before and after.
