Would You Recommend Acupuncture as a Treatment for AMD?
APR 14, 2014
I am glad that the Avastin injections have been successful in stopping the leakage and bleeding from the wet AMD. With the macula now being dry (a less aggressive form of AMD), treatment is directed toward preservation of your vision and there is good evidence that nutritional supplements are helpful in doing this. However, there is no research that demonstrates any treatment that will improve vision in dry AMD. Specifically, we do not recommend acupuncture because there is no compelling scientific evidence for its benefit.
