Microacupuncture for Treating Vision Loss

Microacupuncture has been the cornerstone of Liz Ryan’s practice since 2003. She was trained by Per Otte and worked in his Arkansas clinic until 2009.  In 2010 she moved to Northwest Arkansas.  Per Otte, along with Freddy Dahlgren developed the MicroAcupuncture treatment for macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa and other retinal and optic nerve diseases.  MicroAcupuncture proves a treatment for retinitis pigmentosa, as well as a treatment for macular degeneration.

The Arkansas Acupuncture Center is the best alternative eye care facility in the state because Lizbeth Ryan is trained in one of the most effective treatments available.  It is one of only a few clinics dedicated to the treatment of vision loss in the United States.

“I love what I do and I feel honored to help people improve their eyesight.  Imagine the sadness and fear experienced by people told they will no longer be able to drive, and may eventually lose their independence. Being able to help patients experience hope and help is something for which I am truly grateful.

Ms Ryan is licensed by the State of Arkansas to practice Acupuncture and all related techniques. She holds a Master’s Degree in Oriental Medicine and a Master’s Degree in Agricultural Economics from the University of Arizona.  Also, a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and is trained as an emergency medical technician.
