MicroCurrent Stimulation (MCS) is an enhanced adaptation of a FDA approved therapy used by anesthesiologists, orthopedic surgeons, plastic surgeons and rehabilitative specialists to promote the healing of wounds and transplanted tissues as well as to treat pain. User Experiences
Not only is this the only unit based on all research studies done to date, but it has a unique Regulator and Processor that uniquely adjusts the microcurrent based on each individual's retinal tissue acceptance of the microcurrent (1,000 times per second). The higher frequencies in the beginning of each 5-minute session helps relax the retinal tissue, then the lower frequencies stimulate the retina and ATP (energy) production within the retinal cells. The treatments also attracts adult stem cells to help stimulate possible cell regeneration.
The theory is that MCS helps
Although the exact mechanism of action of MCS has not yet been established scientifically, research suggests that microcurrent electrical stimulation device approximates the level of electrical activity present in a healthy eye, resulting in stimulating retinal activity and energizing dormant cells, as well as improving microvascular circulation, nerve conduction and velocity.
Microcurrent stimulation increases ATP (energy) synthesis in the retinal cells needed for membrane viability and waste management (a major concern for those with dry macular degeneration as excess waste not reabsorbed and eliminated results in waste accumulation called "drusen").
The treatment of patients with Macular Degeneration and Retinitis Pigmentosa entails the periodic administration of very precise amounts of tightly controlled electrical current through electrodes applied to the skin at specific areas around the eye. The electrical current is used to stimulate the retina as well as the diseased macula in order to help protect sight. The procedure is safe, noninvasive and painless and no side effects or adverse reactions have been observed.
This is the home unit version of the Microcurrent Stimulation (MCS 100 ile). The frequency settings were used in the studies described below. It is preset automatically to run through 4 frequencies in a preset 5-minute cycle before turning off. The four frequencies are: 292Hz for 30 seconds, 30Hz for 30 seconds, 9.1Hz for 2 minutes, then finally .3Hz for 2 minutes. Voltage is up to 22 and amps range 700 microAmps.
There are other microcurrent stimulation units available, but they have to be specifically calibrated both in frequency and timing to ensure proper gentle wave currents for your eyes. Most of these units are actually TENS units designed more for wound healing and bone repair.
No side effects or adverse outcomes related to this treatment have been seen so far. No increase in the conversion to the wet form of ARMD has been seen to those who have been treated.
In a consensus statement by the NIH reports that, "One of the advantages...is that the incidence of adverse affects is substantially lower than that of many drugs or other accepted medical procedures used for the same conditions."
MCS therapy is considered an "off label" use of an approved medical device. Off label usage of FDA approved devices and drugs are commonly practiced by doctors without interference from the FDA and allows doctors to practice in a manner they feel most beneficial to their patients.
When ordering, please let us know your specific eye diagnosis.
MCS is contraindicated for those with pacemakers, or who are pregnant. If you have a neurological disorder such as epilepsy, please discuss with your doctor first before using MCS.How it Works Studies Safety Studies Pricing Abstracts FDA Note Directions Usage
The data presented here has not been reviewed by the FDA, nor has it been peer reviewed. The microcurrent devices used are approved by the FDA for the treatment of pain, but they have not been approved for other uses. The use of a device for an off-label use by a physician is legal. The use of microcurrent stimulation discussed here is only one part of a comprehensive program for supporting visual health, and should not replace any treatment prescribed by your physician.
There is a full 1 year replacement warranty on any defective unit (based on normal wear and tear).
"My name is Max Mandolini, and I am a Vision Educator in Long Beach, California. My father Leandro, who lives in Italy, was diagnosed with a form of Wet AMD in his left eye. He is 83, in good overall health: his major problem was an operation for a heart condition in 1998. After that, he has been taking some blood thinning drugs, that may have contributed to leakage in the macular area.
"Late in June 2006, he received an endovitreous injection of Avastin (a steroid-type drug). At that time his vision in OS was 1/10 (Italian measurement). Late in July, I visited him and he started taking some supplements (EPA DHA, Lutein, and an eye formula). Also, he started a daily treatment of MCS ile 1000), which I had purchased from NaturalEyeCare.
"In September, Leandro started complaining of deterioration of vision in his other eye (OD), and was given an injection of Avastin. At that point, he almost could not read and write, and even insecure when walking outside.
"He continued his regime of daily supplementation and MCS treatment. Early in November, he told that he was noticing an improvement in his vision. His latest medical exam (Nov 30) confirmed the improvement to an unpredictable extent: his vision had improved from 20/200 to 20/40.
"The doctor, dumbfounded, has scheduled an appointment for an OCT scan in January. My father, overjoyed, continues his regime."
