NewVision Therapy – What To Expect

To begin, begin
~ William Wordsworth

Since its discovery more than 25 years ago by Dr. John Boel in Denmark, AcuNova acupuncture has shown exceptional, as times extraordinary, results in the treatment of degenerative eye disorders or diseases, including macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy.

Similarly, AcuVision acupuncture, recently developed by Dr. Andy Rosenfarb in New Jersey, has demonstrated its capability to treat or slow the progression of eye conditions or diseases often considered to be impossibly challenging or irreversible.

NewVision Therapy, performed by Desneige Datillo, founder and medical director of the Desneige Acupuncture and Allergy Center in Wakefield, Massachusetts, specializes in AcuNova and AcuVision acupuncture methods, which have a exhibited a remarkable ability to help many people recover part of their sight after receiving AcuNova treatments at the Boel Acupuncture Clinic located in Denmark and AcuVision treatments at Dr. Rosenfarb’s Acupuncture Health Associates clinic based in New Jersey.

For patients with age-related macular degeneration, for example, more than 80 percent of those who received treatment showed a measurable, at times substantial, improvement in their vision depending on the severity or extent of their condition.

At the Desneige Acupuncture and Allergy Center, a patient’s medical history and status is reviewed prior to beginning treatment with NewVision Therapy. Once approved for the therapy, most patients will begin with a comprehensive treatment program that typically involves two or three acupuncture sessions per day for one or more weeks, depending on their condition and individual results or responses to the therapy.

For some patients, the initial five days of therapy provide for an optimum response to treatment, while others experience their best response with a 10-day protocol. Typically, this phase of therapy ends after two weeks at which time maximum improvement of vision normally has been achieved.

After this phase, and because most degenerative eye conditions require ongoing maintenance, many patients return to the center to receive three to four additional acupuncture treatment during the first year and then once or twice per year thereafter depending on their condition and results.

These maintenance treatments are vital to helping patients retain parts of their sight or vision that NewVision Therapy may have been able to restore or regain during the initial treatment phase.

While the frequency of maintenance visits ultimately varies among patients depending on their individual conditions, it has been found that the NewVision Therapy has the potential to help prevent the negative development or progression of age-related macular degeneration, one of the most common of degenerative eye conditions and a major cause of blindness in the United States.
