Ciska was diagnosed with open angle glaucoma in 2008.
Condition Prior to Treatment
After Ciska was diagnosed with glaucoma, her doctors told her that her vision would never improve. Her interocular pressure was between 42 and 43 mmHg in each eye at the time of diagnosis. She was promptly given eye drops to try and slow the pressure from continuing to rise.
Treatment in China
Ciska received 6 packets of umbilical cord-derived adult stem cells through IV, spinals, and a retrobulbar injection. She also received acupuncture, electric wave therapy, and traditional Chinese massage during her treatment.
Condition Following Treatment
Ciska noticed a change in her vision during treatment. She told us, "I walk around the block steadfast now. Not unsure on my feet anymore." She continued, "My balance is so much better." During the interview Ciska described significant improvements in her peripheral vision. Tests from the Shandong Eye Institute carried out at the end of her treatment showed marked improvement in her field of vision.
