Prevention of Macular Degeneration Using Vitamins

By Carlyle Coash

Supplements are very important if you have a degenerative eye disease, or if these diseases run in your family. Over 60 years of research, and thousands of peer-reviewed papers have shown that supplements alone will slow the progression of eye disease, but they will not stop the progression, and they will not restore lost vision. Using the proper supplements, and optimizing your health may be all you need to prevent the development of eye disease if eye disease runs in your family. The Basic Protocol of supplements used in the Better Eye Health Program is our recommendation.

The Reality of Macular Pseudoholes

By Carlyle Coash

Macular pseudoholes; macular holes; macular fold; macular tear; epiretinal membrane. The ophthalmologists consider all of the above as very different and distinct problems, but we have come to see that they are all simply different forms of structural degeneration of the retina, and are more common than different. Also we have seen all of them improve, even heal with the basic approaches used in the full Better Eye Health Program. The eye can heal, and there is Hope for Sight!

Autoimmunity and Your Eye Disease Part Three

By Carlyle Coash

This is the third and final part of our series on autoimmune disease and eye disease. This episode offers the basics of what is needed to manage, even eliminate an autoimmune problem. All autoimmune issues come from an immune system that is over-stimulated. Too much immune stimulation and your body can start producing antibodies that damage your own tissues. The key to reversing this is to reduce the number of things challenging your immune system. Foods can cause reactions, as can toxins. So, changes in diet, and a rational approach to detoxification can have huge benefits.

Autoimmunity and Your Eye Disease Part Two

By Carlyle Coash

Part Two of the discussion on autoimmunity continues. In the work to reduce the challenges to our immune system, it is important to deal with chronic infections. For many, the challenge is centered in their gut. An unhealthy mix of microbes in the gut makes the gut unhealthy, and spills over into the body, causing inflammation and causing immune reactions. Careful attention to gut health is critical if your goal is to heal an autoimmune problem.

Autoimmunity and Your Eye Disease Part One

Dr. Miller talks about how keeping your wellness – especially in regards to toxins – can prove to play an important role in how you calm your immune system, rebuild tissue and reverse degenerative eye disease. This episode is the first of a three-part series.

If You Do Nothing, What Are The Risks of Bleeding?

By Carlyle Coash

Tens of millions of people with degenerative retinal diseases like macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa and Stargardt disease hold the same story. When they were first diagnosed their doctor told them that there was nothing that could be done to stop the vision loss or restore lost vision. Maybe they were given some samples of eye vitamins, but nothing else. There is more you can do. Much more. Your doctor has no drug or surgery to offer, but there are proven therapies you can start now that can stop the progression of the disease, even restore lost vision. If you take your doctor’s advice and just do nothing? The natural history of these diseases is well understood, and it always involves things getting worse over time. Need a dose of hope?

Wet and Dry Macular Degeneration Are The Same Thing

By Carlyle Coash

We address the confusion some people have about wet versus dry macular degeneration. Hint: they are the same disease. All wet macular degeneration begins as dry macular degeneration. Wet (or exudative) macular degeneration is a more advanced stage of dry (non-exudative) macular degeneration. The leaking and bleeding found in wet macular degeneration are simply complications found in more advanced stages of the disease. The injections and treatments offered if you have macular degeneration treat only these complications. They do not treat the underlying disease, and they are not intended to improve vision. Link to the full Better Eye Health Program™More important is the fact that both wet and dry macular degeneration respond well to the support offered in the Better Eye Health Program™, with studies showing that people with both types can see lasting improvements in their vision. There is Hope for Sight!™

Does It Help To Join A Clinical Trial?

By Damon Miller

When you read about research into new treatments for conditions like macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa and Stargardt disease, you may hear about clinical trials and wonder if these are something that might help you. We discuss the long history of clinical trials for the treatment of eye disease. Our general recommendation based on long experience is to not rush to join any clinical trial, for two reasons. One is that almost all of the new treatments being researched involve significant risks. Until there is good data that the treatment offers real and lasting benefits that far outweigh the risks, don’t be in a hurry to try it. Second, while you are waiting for medical research to find a magic bullet that will reverse serious degenerative eye disease, you can start a proven program of treatment where over 90% of people see lasting improvements in their vision.
