A short review of Microcurrent Stimulation in the Treatment of Ocular Disease and a Case Presentation of 3 Stargardt’s Degeneration Siblings Treated with Transpalpebral Microcurrent Stimulation
We present a short review of the use of microcurrent in the treatment of ocular disease and a case presentation of the treatment of 3 siblings, ages 11, 9 and 7, with genetic documentation of ‚Stargardt’s disease and moderate to severe visual loss using Transpalpebral Microcurrent stimulation. After three days of twice a day, Transpalpebral microcurrent treatment visual acuity improved 28%, contrast sensitivity 7% and campimetric visual fields improved 68%. Patients continued once a day treatment at home. Measurements at six months showed an additional 13% improvement in acuity, an additional 8% in contrast. There was also a marked improvement in visual function, performance in school, and outdoor activities. No adverse effects were reported.
