What to Expect?
The AcuVision™ treatment program, offers three, five and ten-day treatment options. We recommend that all first-time patients come for two week (ten days of treatment) so we can get a full appreciation for the individual rate of response unique to each patient. If 10 days is not possible than depending on your situation, we may be able to adjust your initial treatment program. Follow up patients can choose from 3, 5 or 10 days based on your rate of vision recovery and your recommended maintenance schedule.
Treatment sessions are repeated the following week to complete the two-week program. During the first week, Dr. Rosenfarb offers a patient education lecture every Wednesday afternoon which is mandatory for new patients and options for return patients.
New patients must understand that this is not a “miracle cure.” It can take time for some patients to see results where others see improvements right away, especially for advanced cases.
Once we recover whatever lost vision we can, the goal is to then preserve the remaining eyesight through maintenance treatments. Neuro-Degenerative eye conditions usually need some degree of ongoing maintenance and will only get worse if neglected.
The frequency of maintenance visits will vary and depend on the patients individual case. Most patients return for treatment every few months for the first year, then continue with maintenance treatments once or twice a year, or whatever treatment frequency is recommended for your specific case.
