I chose to work with this specialty because my dad has glaucoma which went terribly wrong (probably by being prescribed a medication which can make glaucoma worse!), and now he is nearly blind. It is a very tough thing to deal with when your dad is 89 and has had his sight his entire life and now becomes dependent on others for the smallest daily tasks. For this reason I have made it a goal, my passion, to help others with degenerative eye disease in my practice.
I have helped patients with many chronic eye issues including but not limited to, glaucoma, macular degeneration, blepharitis, keratoconus and retinitis pigmentosa. Many times western medicine holds no option for improving vision. My dad is not even a candidate for stem cell therapy. While each condition is different, acupuncture, Chinese medicine, supplements and eye exercises can help improve and make vision clearer. Treatment of eye disease requires at least 1-2 treatments per week for optimum results.
