We Can Help

Dr. Ryan was fortunate to learn this effective Acupuncture method for treating eye conditions in 2003, then learned a new treatment in 2013. She has worked continually for the last fourteen years with hundreds of visually impaired patients, first as chief acupuncturist in a clinic in Hot Springs, Arkansas, where she was trained by Per Otte and spent over six years working with patients suffering from degenerative eye disorders. During that time, she developed an understanding of the various aspects of eye diseases, their development and their treatment. She then opened her own facility where she continued to treat visually challenged patients. In 2009, she relocated her clinic to Bentonville, Arkansas. In 2013, she went on to learn a new technique, Acunova, a treatment for all eye diseases with wonderful results.

At the Arkansas Acupuncture Center patients are able to receive macular degeneration treatments, Retinitis Pigmentosa treatments, glaucoma treatments as well as treatment for a variety of degenerative eye disorders.
