    Acupuncture in patients with retinitis pigmentosa, tapetorenital abiotrophy and macular distrophy

    Background: Retinitis Pigmentosa,Tapetoretinal Abiotrophy and Macular Distrophy are  fairly common diseases, yet little is known about their causes and conventional treatment with surgery or drug is largely ineffective, it remains a major problem of modern ophthalmology.

    Objectives: To evaluate the effectiveness of acupuncture and bioresonance therapy (BRT) in patients with above mentioned diseases.

    Methods: In the eye center “Doctor Azim Ltd”, Dept. of traditional Chinese medicine, 17 patients (70% men, aged between 30-50) with retinitis pigmentosa, tapetoretinal abiotrophy of retina and macular dystrophy have been surveyed and passed the treatment by acupuncture. All treatments are carried out by me and consist of 10-12 sessions for 25-30 minutes each over 3-6 weeks. This is followed by continuous acupressure applied to some acupoints and BRT by fixed frequency, BRT along meridians (organs and systems) for one year supervision.

    Results: All patients noticed general somatic symptoms improvement, irritability decrease, sleep normalization, visual fatigue elimination. In all cases an increase of visual acuity from 10 up to 20% and visual field enlargement were marked, Some subjective symptoms have also disappeared or have considerably reduced, enhanced clarity of vision, colors being brighter, better focus. The patients also noted significant downturn of light sensitivity in the macular part of retina threshold values.


    1. Acupuncture and bioresonance therapy are highly effective non-medicamentous ways of treating these diseases.

    2. Acupuncture offers clear advantages and can be seen as a useful addition to standard treatment. By using a holistic approach we may be also able to tailor a treatment program that is both effective and safe.

    3. In carrying out the above mentioned therapy adverse side effects and complications have not been revealed.
