How Do I Become a Patient?


    To make sure Fedorov Therapy can benefit you, we need to learn more about you. By reviewing your medical records, we will seek to understand your current conditions, the history of your vision loss and the treatments you have already undergone. Regardless of your decision to proceed with treatment, this evaluation is completely free-of-charge to you.

    Steps To Review Medical Case

    Complete a Free Evaluation Request Form

    As a first step, and to initiate your free evaluation to determine if you are a good candidate, you will be asked to fill-in our Restore Vision Checklist  to provide us with a brief history of your disease, your diagnosis, and eyesight complaints. The questionnaires is designed to allow us to understand to which extent visual disturbances affect your everyday activities and help us identify if there are no potential contraindications to the treatment.

     

    Medical documentation Assessment (2-10 working days)

    If contraindications are absent, you will be asked to send us a copy of your medical records via email or fax.

    Your medical documentation should include the following information:

    • History of the disease, indicating its beginning, obtained examinations and treatment results
    • Findings and reports on how your disease proceeded, what methods of therapeutic or surgical treatment were used
    • The results of the latest ophthalmological examinations (within the last 4-6 months), including a detailed eye exam with details about intraocular pressure of both eyes
    • The results of obtained visual fields examinations (if possible together with their dynamic).
    • The results of CT or MRI, EEG, evoked potentials

     

    Treatment Eligibility Confirmation

    If there are no contraindications and we believe our will benefit from the treatment, we will send you the following information to review:

    1. The Medical Contract
    2. The invitation letter - which is necessary when you apply for a visa.
    3. Possible treatment dates - including a recommendation to receive treatment as soon as possible if your disease (medical condition) requires this.

    At your convenience, we will schedule a time to discuss the prognosis in more details and answer any questions you may have.

    Once you have selected your treatment dates, you will be asked for a deposit to secure the dates.

      • Although there are no specific restrictions connected to eye strain (you can use a computer and read), you should not spend more than 3 hours a day in front of a computer during your stay in Berlin.
      • Some patients feel tired after the therapy, but a few hours of rest allow them to overcome it completely.
    • After the treatment course you are thoroughly examined and your results are discussed.

    Back at home

    After the course of the treatment it is very important to follow at home our suggested Visual training regime for 2-4 weeks.

     

    Post-therapy tests

    12-14 weeks after the treatment we will ask you to complete and send through a set of Vision Field tests, and provide a description of your subjective vision after the therapy.

     

    Treatment Results

    Our physicians will review the above tests results along with your assessment of your Quality of Life change.

    If there is a Vision Field improvement, meaning the survey has shown positive development and patient informs of positive subjective vision - this means you are a responder to the Restore Vision Approach. In this case, it is recommended to receive a second treatment 6-8-10 months (individual) after first treatment.

    • To book your next treatment, you can repeat the steps from point 3
    • Up to three-four courses of treatment can be made.

    Fedorov Clinic Restore Vision Berlin Germany Retitnis Pigmentosa Patient

    I suffered from Retinitis pigmentosa. Before I had only 5 degrees of peripheral vision. Now I have a full 15 degrees and parts of 20-30 degrees. Two years ago my acuity was greater than 20/100. Now my acuity is 20/40 in both eyes WITHOUT corrective lenses. I never dreamed this could be possible. My whole life I've been told there is no cure, no treatment, no hope. Well, not any more! I'm so thankful to have found the Restore Vision Clinic. The vision they have given me can be measured but what it means to me cannot. I get to SEE my kids grow up. I can see hundreds of stars. I can see rainbows. I can see people's facial expressions. I see a happier, more fulfilling future without a threat of total blindness.
