Abstract OBJECTIVE: To analyze in depth the effects of ozone therapy and electrical stimulation on the visual function of patients suffering pigmentary retinitis. METHODS: One hundred and eighty six patients carrying pigmentary retinitis were studied. They were grouped according to the clinical staging of the Cuban classification (4 groups). Ozone therapy and electrical stimulations were applied daily for 14 days. An ophthalmologic test before and after the treatment was performed; Snellen´s charter for visual acuity and Goldman-type kinetic visual field. Statistical data were analyzed and compared using Student´s t test. The statistical significance was set at p<0,05. RESULTS: The corrected visual acuity remained the same in the 57 patients grouped in staging 1. Significant changes were observed in the visual field of 16 patients. Regarding the 66 patients in staging 2, corrected visual acuity remained the same in 48 whereas 29 patients experienced significant changes in their visual field. Forty nine patients were included in the staging 3 where corrected visual acuity kept the same value in 38 patients, but very significant changes in the visual field of 27 patients were observed. CONCLUSION: In the Cuban multitherapeutical strategy for the treatment of pigmentary retinitis, the annual cyclic use of ozone therapy and electrical stimulation is essential to keep control over the disease. Key words: Ozone therapy, electrical stimulation, pigmentary retinitis.

Title [A Case of “Dry Eye Syndrome” Cured by Systemic O2-O3 Therapy]
Author GALOFORO, AC
Author TABARACCI, G.
Abstract This case report describes a male patient with a twelve-year history of “dry eye syndrome” completely healed using systemic O2-O3 Therapy. Dry eye syndrome is a disease caused by a quantitative and qualitative impariment of lacrimal gland function. The commonest symptoms are: burning eyes, persistent sensation of a foreign body, lancinating pain, photophobia, blepharitis and conjunctivitis due to a greater tendency of the eye to contract infection by usually harmless germs and prompt irritation by environmental conditions.

Title Visual Improvement Following Ozonetherapy in Dry Age Related Macular Degeneration; a Review
Author Borrelli, Emma
Author Bocci, Velio
Abstract The dry form of ARMD is becoming a serious problem because of the rise in the number of old individuals. No effective therapy is available in dry ARMD except for the illusory oral administration of antioxidant vitamins. Despite scepticism in the medical community, the therapeutic effect of ozonetherapy had been evaluated since 1996. This evaluation has been based on specific biochemical, molecular and pharmacological reactions. Nevertheless a number of visual scientists continue to ignore ozonetherapy conservatively and prescribe only antioxidant vitamins. Two small clinical studies involving 217 patients have been performed at the University of Siena showing that ozonetherapy can stop the progression of the disease while improving the visual acuity and the well-being of the patient. Moreover, it seems that ozonetherapy is a safe procedure and tends to have an excellent compliance.
