Outcomes 2011 to 2012

These are the patients that have gone through the 3 day program beginning Jan 2011. I selected this time period  since I am using the latest treatment methods which include IV nutrition, Hydrogen peroxide, Ozone, microcurrent, Syntonic light therapy and homeopathy.

 

Acuity was measured using the ETDRS Eye Chart  which is accepted and approved in studies sponsored by the National Eye Institute and FDA. Each line on the chart has 5 letters.

Contrast was measured using the The Mars Letter Contrast Sensitivity Test (MLCST) is a simple portable set of contrast-calibrated letter charts for testing contrast sensitivity. This measures the ability to perceive lighter and lighter shades of  contrast.

Visual fields were measured using a Campimetry. It is for testing central fields for white, blue, green and red. It is used in syntonics to assess subtle changes in awareness and visual fields. This method measures the ability to perceive motion.

 

RESULTS

Here is a list of patients treated and their results after the 3 day program

Improvement of acuity is listed in either lines (5 letters in a line) or letters better.

Improvement of contrast is listed in the number of additional letters read

Improvement of visual fields is listed as follows
