Retinal Damage

Our eyes give us a window to the world, so it’s natural that you want to protect your vision. But what if you are already experiencing problems? Our effective treatments are why many patients seek holistic, restorative treatment for retinal damage in Glenview, IL. 

What Causes Retinal Eye Damage?

Retina damage has a number of causes, which include accidents. Direct sun exposure or other sources of dangerously bright light; head injuries; increased pressure in the eye; surgeries; reduced blood supply, including in diabetes; and excitotoxins can all cause retinal damage. Aging can lead to retinal damage too, frequently in the form of age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

How Do You Know If Your Retina Is Damaged?

Retinal damage symptoms can include both distorted and dim vision, as well as the perception of floating particles or flashing lights inside your eye. You may even find that images appear and disappear, or you may have double vision.

If your issues were the result of chronic direct sun (or other bright light) exposure, or perhaps an illness, they are more likely to develop gradually. You may not notice them at first, but it’s important to regularly monitor your vision for any unwanted changes.

Can Damaged Retina be Cured?

While conventional retinal damage treatment will only help with complications (like retinal bleeding), acupuncture for eyesight slows or prevents further decline and may even improve your vision. Studies have found better tissue structure in types of retinal damage such as AMD, with acupuncture normalizing tissue thickness in the eye. Acupuncture may also boost beneficial growth factors that can repair the eye or the nerves and blood vessels supporting it.

At Life Balance Clinic, we offer the AcuVision system of treatment for eye conditions. This unique Danish system uses previously unknown acupoints and has an over 80% response rate in treating various types of retinal damage including macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa, and diabetic retinopathy.

Can Acupuncture Cure Retinopathy?

Every patient is different, so we can’t make any promises. However, protocols such as AcuVision treatment can give you an over 80% chance at seeing at least a partial improvement to your eyesight. AcuVision requires two-week initial intensive treatment consisting of two acupuncture sessions per day.
