eye health without surgery

Cataracts, macular degeneration, dry eye, and age-related decline can all impact your eyesight and overall quality of life. These problems are usually solved with expensive and invasive surgery or you are told they can’t be fixed. However, is a way to improve your eye health without surgery or breaking the bank. It is Photobiomodulation (PBM), more commonly known as Red Light therapy.

PBM has been around for over 50 years, but has been gaining more attention because of the amazing results it achieves. It can help with diabetic treatment, headaches, stroke recovery, skin health (wrinkles, acne, scarring), and so much more. In addition to those ground breaking results, we see amazing results when PBM is used for eye health. It is a fraction of the cost of laser treatment and does not have the warnings or side effects that we see with other treatment options.

Backed by Scientific Research

One test showed that, “when people received one treatment … their performance on the color contrast test improved by 12 to 17 percent, compared with before the treatment.” Color contrast becomes weaker as we age, but with PBM it can be reversed! Even macular degeneration and eyesight loss due to diabetes can be greatly improved with regular PBM sessions. In another study, they found that 97% of the treated patients who had cataracts experienced better visual clarity. As they continue to do trials with PBM, there have been no adverse effects and a ton of benefits in every area in the body.

How can you achieve this level of eye health without surgery? It’s simple! Regularly, 3-5 times a week, do the 10 minute treatment. Treatment is not painful or invasive, and can be done with your eyes closed – literally. Results can be seen as soon as 1-2 months. Get scheduled today – Phoenix, AZ. If you are not close enough to come in to get full body PBM, you can order a hand-held option HERE.

I have been using the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for the last few weeks and It has helped me so much. I struggle quite a bit with work related stress. When I'm in the chamber I feel completely relaxed, so much so that I can bring my laptop inside and work without stressing. The calmness I feel in the chamber lasts for the remainder of the day as well. I have found too, the more consistent I am with sessions throughout the week the better I feel. The office staff seems well trained in running the tanks too, so I feel safe. I see Dr. Kilcup as well for my brain and gut health. Until now, I don't think I've ever known what "normal" or "healthy" feels like. Thank you all, sincerely!

Darrell is highly knowledgeable and really gets to the root of the problem. Unlike a lot of doctors, Darrell doesn't just throw prescriptions at issues. He will test and test - digging for the cause and then working on fixing the issue. He and his staff are professional, courteous, and a joy to be around.

I am very grateful to have found Dr. Kilcup and be his patient for the last couple of years. He has helped me restore my health back after being exposed to toxic mold for years. He helped identify and treat all of my symptoms I was experiencing and address the root problem. I was looking for the right person who could help me heal with natural therapies and supplements and Dr. Kilcup was the perfect fit. Every appointment and session was necessary and one step towards all the progress I made. Dr. Kilcup is a great functional medicine doctor who was also an advocate for my own health and well-being. I never received any care or attention to detail from other Doctors in past experiences except with Dr. Kilcup. Anyone who is seeking a holistic path towards healing or improving their own health should see him.
