My situation started when the Retina in my right eye detached, and then detached a second time a few months later. After 5 eye surgeries, being off work for 7 months, due to poor vision, and new diagnosis of Glaucoma and Macular Degeneration, I found myself somewhat short of cash. My savings had been pretty much depleted. My Retinologist and Ophthalmologist both had said that there was not much more they could do for me. My vision in the right eye was very limited. My wife and I were not ready to throw in the towel on my vision. We started looking On Line for alternative choices. We came across a site for Micro Acupuncture by Dr. Per Otte, in West Virginia. I was initially reluctant due to lack of funds. I told my wife we could not afford to make the trip across the country from Omaha, Nebraska, to Beaver, West Virginia. Her response was: "How much is your eyesight worth to you?" It was at that point I realized that I was not ready to give up on returning and retaining and my vision. I was willing to try anything in attempts to help my vision. As a Nurse for 25 years, with a hobby of woodworking, I needed my vision to continue my passions.
We made arrangement's to drive to West Virginia for Micro Acupuncture, for a 12 day stay. We really did not know just what to expect, but our hopes were high. I had the initial scan for baseline information, and continued to receive treatments 5 times a day for 2 days. I then had a second scan, which showed small improvements in only 2 days. My wife and myself both became excited and continued for the rest of the 12 day regime. Dr. Otte had told us that improvements could improve with time, after the initial treatments. It was like taking baby steps. Each time a person returns to the clinic, more baby steps toward progress are made. I had not really noticed that much of a difference on the way home, until my wife noticed I was reading the road signs on the way home, where as prior to receiving Micro Acupuncture, I could not read the road signs or billboards. But it was true, my vision was improved and continued to do so. I returned again in 2-3 months, for a second round of treatments of 7 days this time, per my choice. I again showed signs of improvement in vision. I was able to obtain employment again, to help pay the bills that had been coming in. After my third return, my scans showed much improvement , and I was able to see with peripheral vision again, and even drive a car again. I was able to see with enough clarity, to notice if a car was in the other lane or not. I was ecstatic. My vision has continued to improve and I intend to make another return trip again in April. The scans I brought home after the third trip showed remarkable progress. My Ophthalmologist, who thought Micro Acupuncture was a waste of money, was eating his words. The scans lined up with his scans as well, showing improvements. I am now very optimistic about getting my eyesight back again. I have Dr. Otte to thank for that. His Micro Acupuncture treatments work. People come from all over the world to see him. I have met people from the Netherlands, Greece, Mexico, Canada, and from California to Washington, New York, to Florida, and anywhere in between, at Dr. Otte's Micro Acupuncture Clinic. I have heard there are people from Scotland, England, and even India that return for Dr. Otte's treatments. I have not heard of one story yet where improvements were not being made with their vision. All of us there were there for the same purpose, to help our vision. We tend to all become one big happy family. It is an awesome experience to talk to all the other people, and listen to their stories. But we all have Dr. Otte to thank for it, because he is helping mankind see the world, as best as they can. Thank you Dr. Otte.
