Visual Field Tests L. Emanouel – Age-Related Macular Degeneration
Compilations of Visual Field Test results of our patient with the wet form of Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD or ARMD) of the left eye, before and after our Acupuncture sessions. The patient had already performed 7 injections to his left eye from an ophthalmologist before trying Medical Acupuncture as a complementary method of treatment. The overall improvement in the patient’s Visual Field is proof of our effective treatment.
- Color display of a Visual Field Map of a male patient with Age-Related Macular Degeneration. The Visual Field Tests were taken using the Medmont automated perimeter (MAP) both before and after the implementation of a Personalized Acupuncture Protocol of our Institute, which specializes in vision improvement. The protocol for central visual field assessment (22A Test).
- Pictures at the top are the results of the Visual Field Test before Acupuncture treatment.
- Pictures at the bottom are the results of the Visual Field Test after Acupuncture treatment.
- Areas of Defect of Visual Field are represented in colors:
- RED = NO VISION
- YELLOW = POOR VISION
- GREEN – BLUE = GOOD VISION
- In Age-Related Macular Degeneration the central 10 degrees of the visual field are affected and in late stages, Central Scotomas develop.
- After 10 intensive Acupuncture sessions in the color scale there is a clear reduction of the yellow and red areas in both eyes indicating improvement in the visual field defects of the patient. On his left eye there is a significant reduction of the red areas. On his right eye a portion of the green area has changed blue to indicate a better overall visual field. Central Vision of the patient was also slightly improved.
- Field Pattern Defect: Marked improvement is captured in more detail in the perimeter’s global analysis located to the bottom right of the pages, next to the blue arrow <=
In details: On 21st January 2022, when the Acupuncture sessions started, the right eye had an indication of 6.78 and the left eye 7.37. On 8th February 2022, after the completion of the Personalized Acupuncture Treatment cycle, the indications became 3.24 and 4.45 respectively.
The Pattern Defect values after our Acupuncture treatment are numerically closer to the value of 0.00 related to those before Acupuncture, indicating a healthier visual field.
- The healthier Visual Fields and improved central vision are proof of the evidence-based effectiveness of our Therapy Method.
