We provide patients throughout Northeast Ohio with modern ocular therapy, which is used to treat age-related macular degeneration and other inflammatory eye conditions. IV therapy can benefit the body in a multitude of ways. While we offer several different IV therapies, this treatment is for eye-related concerns specifically. Let us help you cultivate a lifestyle centered on whole health and wellbeing at Balance of Life Clinic.
Ocular IV Therapy and Macular Degeneration
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a condition that affects a specific part of the retina, the macula. This is a common condition and one of the leading causes of vision loss in older individuals. Patients with AMD experience several telltale symptoms, including:
- Central vision loss
- Straight lines appear distorted
- Dark, blurry areas
- Change in color perception
- Eventual blindness
Ocular therapy, a type of intravenous immunoglobulin immunomodulatory therapy, is designed to help prevent the progression of macular degeneration and alleviate other eye-related concerns. By delivering an optimized blend of vital nutrients directly into the circulatory system, this therapy gives your body the necessary tools it needs to help combat the disease.
Why Choose IV Therapy for Vision?
An IV drip is one of the most efficient ways to deliver nutrients to the body and is an effective means to address whole-patient health. It’s made up of IV fluids, the base of most any IV solution that facilitates nutrient delivery, and a targeted nutrient blend. In this case, the ocular therapy IV blend will be made up of the nutrients most beneficial to the eyes.
The vitamins and minerals our body needs come from the foods and drinks we consume. If not enough of those are absorbed, it’s more difficult for our bodies to fight disease and achieve optimal wellness. When taken orally, nutrients and supplements are broken down by the digestive tract and a fair portion is excreted as waste. IV therapy allows nutrients to skip your digestive tract and go straight to the most critical areas — the tissues and cells.
What to Expect from Your Ocular IV Therapy Session
Here at Balance of Life Clinic, our team is committed to treating the whole person — not just a singular issue or symptom — benefitting the body as a whole and stimulating its self-healing mechanisms. While the macular tissue in your retinas may not be able to self-heal, our individualized treatment plan can help slow or stop what damage has already been done, so you can preserve your vision as long as possible.
Our clinicians consult with you and develop an individualized treatment plan tailored to your needs. During your treatment, you’ll rest comfortably in our facility, and your IV line will run under the guidance of our providers and our knowledgeable, caring staff members.
The therapies we offer are designed to complement the care you’re receiving from your primary physician. Our integrative treatments are meant to be undertaken in tandem with the medical treatment prescribed by your doctor, helping you achieve balanced wellbeing.
