We are excited by the results that some of our patients have experienced over the past five years when we have been using acupuncture for eye disease.
We have brought into our acupuncture clinic an innovation called ophthalmic acupuncture or acupuncture for eye disease.
I must state categorically at the outset that we do not put needles in the eyes of acupuncture patients. This is a prevalent interpretation of acupuncture for eye disorders, but it is certainly not the case.
I was very fortunate in 2008 to meet Dr. Andy Rosenfarb from New Jersey who is a pioneer in ophthalmic acupuncture. Dr Rosenfarb has been treating degenerative eye diseases since 1997 using Traditional Chinese Medicine. He has done quite a bit of work with the John Hopkins research studies into the effect and outcomes of acupuncture treatment for degenerative eye disease, particularly retinitis pigmentosa and macular degeneration.
What has excited me has been the positive outcomes we found using acupuncture treatment for eye disease. I passionately believe in and love the practice of acupuncture. I have brought to my acupuncture clinics the ophthalmic acupuncture approach that Dr. Rosenfarb has been so kind to teach me.
Acupuncture for eye disease has added to my excitement and I deeply enjoy seeing people benefit from ophthalmic acupuncture, particularly those people undergoing the alarming process of degenerative eye disease.
