Vision Recovery

Acupuncture can be very effective for chronic vision issues such as retinitis pigmentosa (RP), macular degeneration, and glaucoma. While acupuncture is an ancient practice, its application in ophthalmology has gained attention in recent years. Here's why you might consider acupuncture as a complementary approach to your conventional vision care

Vision Recovery can help with many common vision problems

Your body is amazing in its capacity to regenerate. The cells in the back of the eye are broken down and regenerate every 2 days! So both positive and negative changes in vision can happen rapidly.

Our eyes are continually rebuilding and repairing cells that have become dormant or damaged. These cells require fresh blood to bring nutrients for repair and also to remove old tissue, waste and debris. This goes for all areas of the body. If circulation is limited then the area will deteriorate, just like an limb will atrophy if it is not used.

For some individuals the body cannot keep up with the level of damage in the eyes because the blood vessels are very small and they can get blocked or damaged.

This is the case with all degenerative eye conditions. The circulation of blood is limited so the repair mechanisms in the eyes cannot keep up with healing all the old and damaged cells.

Your treatment plan may include treatments once per day to accelerate the turnover in new cells and you may see improvement in as little as 2 days.
