Acupuncture for Macular Degeneration – A review of a new study conducted in 2023

Are you or a loved one struggling with Age-Related Macular Degeneration, or AMD? It’s a challenging condition that can impact your quality of life and independence. But what if there was a natural solution that could help improve your vision? Let’s explore a groundbreaking study on how acupuncture could be the answer you’ve been searching for.

Here’s a video Dr. Hanson made on this study

Let’s dive into the study

In a recent pilot study (a small study to see if things work before a larger study is done). The study is titled “Acupuncture for Dry Age-Related Macular Degeneration: A Pilot Study” and was conducted at the Center for Integrative Eye Care. Patients diagnosed with dry AMD were introduced to the Santa Fe Protocol, a specialized acupuncture treatment that Dr. Hanson in Tampa, FL incorporates into his 4 Day Intense Vision Acupuncture Protocol where patients fly in from all over the country (Click Here to learn if this is right for you).

Over the course of 20 weeks, participants underwent ten acupuncture sessions tailored to their specific needs.

Results from study

According to the study findings, nearly 90% of patients experienced improvements in their distance vision, while over 77% saw enhancements in their near vision.

It’s not just about the numbers.

The quality of life also improved for many participants, as reported through the Visual Functioning Questionnaire.

These promising results suggest that acupuncture could be a viable option for those seeking alternative treatments for AMD.

The good news

This is one single small study that showed really promising results. The good news is that Dr. Hanson has been using MicroAcupuncture to treat degenerative eye conditions like Macular Degeneration for 10 years now. You don’t have to drag your treatment out over the course of 10 or 20 weeks like they did in this study. Dr. Hanson offers an intense 4 Day Vision Acupuncture Program where we can make huge changes in just a few days. We will first measure your visual acuity (how well you see near and far distance) and also your Visual Fields (Your central vision). We see changes happen in just a couple of days. It takes about 2 days for the cells in your retina to wake up – that means things get brighter and you can see better.

What type of results can you expect with Dr. Hanson in Tampa, FL

Around 80% of patients notice they can read better (1-2 lines on average on an eye chart). Their vision gets brighter. And their visual fields improve. Treatment doesn’t involve any needles in the eye, so don’t worry.
