Welcome to West Coast Micro Acupuncture Vision Clinic Webpage
If you were diagnosed with one of the degenerative vision disorders by an ophthalmologist but were told there was no treatment for your condition, or you are already one step ahead looking for alternative treatment options, then you are at the right place.
WCMA is the first vision clinic in Canada that specializes in the treatment of degenerative eye disorders by using Micro Acupuncture as main protocol. Our mission is “Saving Vision One At A Time”! We provide the best quality services to the vision challenged individuals who are seeking to improve their vision and to live or maintain their quality life.
Micro Acupuncture has been practiced mainly in US for over 20 years by only a few specially-trained acupuncture practitioners. It has helped thousands of patients who had degenerative vision disorders around the world. It is a unique, effective and yet non-invasive acupuncture modality for treating many vision disorders. Apart from traditional acupuncture, it mainly concentrates on hands and feet. Due to their special connections with eyes, optic nerves and related organs, it can help repair and rebuild the eye tissues to improve or restore visions on different levels. Combining with proper herbal or/and dietary supplements and other treatment modalities (depending on individual patient’s condition), patients often see improvement in a matter of a few days. Based on the clinic experiences, it usually takes one to two weeks after the treatment to see the full result. For the ones who do not see the immediate or obvious result, it doesn’t mean the treatment is not working. For someone whose vision has changed from 20/800 to 20/600 after the initial treatment, he/she is still not able to see yet, but that is the beginning of improvement for him/her. Time period for improvement is different for everyone as each one’s pathological and physical conditions are different. It may take longer time and more comprehensive treatments for some people. For those who don’t see any change on their visual acuity and visual field, the treatment may still play the crucial role for halting the progression of the disease.
