Vision Loss

Eyes & Vision Loss

Every DAY- in the UK, 250 people start to lose their sight. Today, there are more than two million people in the UK living with sight loss that is severe enough to have a significant impact on their daily lives, such as not being able to drive (RNIB, 2018). As a specialist clinic in Ophthalmology Acupuncture, we treat people with vision loss and understand the real impact and the real people behind these statistics Whilst there are some conventional medical options that can bring benefits, these can be associated with risks and side-effects. Acupuncture is a safe, natural and effective treatment for vision loss that works from the inside out and treats the whole body and mind together, which is fantastic for vision as the eye is a direct antenna of our Central Nervous System and brain. Ophthalmic Acupuncture complements the conventional approaches and can manage side-effects as well as working to increase blood flow and oxygen supply to the eyes directly. Patients often report that other aspects of their health and wellbeing also improve.

Why the Vision Acutherapy®  Programme?

Based closely on Dr Rosenfarb’s teachings and methods, Alison now offers Vision Acutherapy® which is a complete Ophthalmology Acupuncture programme, designed just for you.

This goes far beyond simple protocols or points for any given condition and treats your whole body and mind, whilst focusing on approaches proven to benefit the eyes. Each Vision Acutherapy® Programme consists of a series of either 10 or 20 treatments is individualised to meet the unique needs of our patients and treats the whole person, not just their eye condition. We integrate the specific MicroAcupuncture48 and other Traditional East Asian Medicine (TEAM) eye protocols and points with a whole-person diagnosis.

We request patients to have had vision-testing completed no more than two-weeks prior to starting the programme and some functional in-house vision testing is also offered, including central acuity near and far, visual field, contrast and colour vision. After the first programme is completed, patients should have their vision retested and results compared. It is on this basis we can then make a longer-term treatment plan, based on your needs. All patients leave with a treatment plan, as well as advice on diet, lifestyle, supplements and exercises.
