Lately, we have been receiving many inquiries about the difference between the many acupuncture systems and modalities that Dr. Rosenfarb uses with his eye patients.
As discussed in our patient educations videos (on our YouTube Channel), Dr. Rosenfab has spent the last 20 years researching dozens of acupuncture systems. There are quite possibly hundreds of acupuncture systems that have been developed over the last 4,000 years worldwide.
Dr. Rosenfarb has conducted both clinical and scientific research in order to determine which acupuncture systems (and which acupoints) get the very best results for specific eye conditions.
There are about a dozen acupuncture systems and modalities that Dr. Rosenfarb currently uses with his eye patients. These safe, new therapies can help people recover lost vision and preserve vision long term. Our goal is to produce maximum results for our patients!
Acupuncture Systems that Improve & Maintain Vision
Traditional Acupuncture – Based on the Acupuncture Meridian System which corrects the underlying patterns of disease.
Micro Acupuncture 48 – 48 new points located on the hands and feet that directly improve eye function.
Ear Acupuncture – Another micro system where points are located on the ear and stimulate the entire vision system.
Low level laser therapy (LLLT) to charge the eye cells
LLLT increases cellular ATP function, controls inflammation, improves blood flow and charges the photoreceptors (retinal cells) of the eye.
LLLT is great for children and people who are needle-phobic.
Electro therapies for improving blood flow
Transcorneal Electric Stimulation (TES) – Electric impulses that cross the cornea and directly stimulate the retina, optic nerve and visual cortex.
TES is also a great alternative for those who are uncomfortable with the idea of needles.
Micro Current Stimulation (MCS) – Electric impulses stimulate acupressure points (on the skin) around the eyes. This increases blood flow and regulate cellular ATP function.
MCS is a great clinical alternative for children, as well as a home care therapy for many.
Electro Acupuncture (EA) – Electricity applied directly to acupuncture needles that increase blood flow and wakes up sleeping eye cells.
