Vision Problems



There are many different types of vision problems, including:


- Age-related macular degeneration (AMD)

- Cataracts

- Diabetic retinopathy

- Glaucoma

- Night blindness

- Etc.


Symptoms vary by condition, e.g.:


- AMD - damage to the macula area of the retina, gradual loss of central vision

- Cataracts - clouding of the lens of the eye, fuzzy/blurred vision, gradual vision loss

- Glaucoma - pressure buildup and pain in the eye, gradual loss of peripheral vision leading to tunnel vision





Potential contributing factors include:


- Oxidative stress (free-radical damage)

- Diabetes

- High blood pressure

- Atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries)

- Smoking

- Nutrient deficiencies

- Genetic errors in collagen metabolism

- Environmental toxin exposure - e.g., heavy metals



My Treatment Approach


Address each of the potential root causes, e.g.:


- If present, address diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease.


- Identify and address potential food allergies or intolerances.


- Shift to an anti-inflammatory diet.


- Include supplementation to support eye function, e.g.:

      - Antioxidants

      - Vitamins     

      - Minerals

      - Herbals

      - Essential fatty acids


- Avoid future toxin exposure, and safely / properly reduce existing toxin levels in the body.


- If smoking, try to stop on your own or join a smoking cessation program.
