Nearsightedness

Overview

Nearsightedness, also known as myopia, is a condition characterized by an inability to properly see clearly when looking at objects at a mid- or far distance, while the ability to see clearly up close is unaffected. Nearsightedness occurs because light rays containing visual images fall in front of the retina instead of on it, making it difficult to properly see at a distance. All that conventional medicine can offer as treatments for nearsightedness are corrective prescription lenses (glasses or contact lenses) or surgery (Lasik and PRK).

The most common symptoms of nearsightedness are the inability to see clearly when looking at objects in the distance, a need to squint the eyes in order to see clearly, and eyestrain. Fatigue and headaches are other common symptoms.

The main causes of nearsightedness are due to the eyes becoming longer than normal or the cornea becoming too steeply curved. Another common cause has to due with an inability of the eye lens and its associated muscles to properly relax.

Shortcomings of Conventional Nearsightedness Treatments
The primary conventional treatments available for nearsightedness are corrective prescription lenses or surgery. Both treatment methods are not without shortcomings, however, and can potentially result in serious complications.

Corrective Prescription Lenses: Corrective lenses in the form of glasses or contact lenses are the most commonly prescribed conventional treatment for astigmatism, farsightedness, and nearsightedness. While they can certainly improve symptoms caused by all three of these vision disorders, they can also worsen them as well, and usually do over time, by leading to long-term dependency on lens wearing due to decreased sensitivity of the eye muscles that result from wearing corrective lenses. Other side effects of corrective lenses include increased sensitivity to artificial light, and loss of depth of perception.

Contact lenses can cause additional problems, including a significant increase in the risk of developing microbial keratitis, an infectious condition characterized by inflammation of the cornea.
Surgery: In recent years, surgical procedures to correct astigmatism and far- and nearsightedness have become popular. The two main types of surgeries for this purpose are Lasik surgery and photorefractive keratomy (PRK). Lasik surgery is conducted using an extremely thin blade, with which the surgeon cuts a flap near the top of the cornea. A laser is then employed to burn away part of the cornea, after which the cornea flap is reattached. PRK also reshapes the cornea using a laser, without the need for first creating a cornea flap, but usually requires a longer waiting period before patients experience improvements in their vision.

Though many patients report improved vision after undergoing Lasik and PRK surgeries, both procedures can cause the following side effects:

  • Free radical damage caused by the laser that can result in an unhealthy thinning of the cornea and damage to its structural integrity.
  • Chronic dry eye due to a diminished capacity to produce tears.
  • A sensation of halos around lights.
  • Impaired visual acuity.
  • Tear in and detachment of the retina.
  • Holes in the macula (the central region of the retina), which lead to macular degeneration.
  • Damage to the optic nerve.

Emphasize a diet of organic, whole foods, with a daily abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables. Choose from a wide variety, focusing on those foods rich in antioxidants. These include red, orange and purple bell peppers, carrots, celery, dark-green leafy vegetables such as chard, kale, collard, spinach and richer colored green leaf lettuces, parsley, tomatoes and yellow squash. Fruits high in anti-oxidants include berries, especially raw or juiced Acai berries, Goji berries and dark colored berries, purple and red grapes, plums, cherries, mangos, melons and citrus fruits. For a sweet treat or to help curb chocolate cravings, enjoy the anti-oxidant rich unsweetened cacoa. Mixed with natural sweeteners such as raw honey or agave syrup, cacoa is a scrumptious alternative to the typical refined sugar in conventional chocolate products.

Organic egg yolks are also recommended because they are rich in carotenoids, an important class of antioxidants. It is best to eat soft, rather than hard cooked egg yolks to preserve the heat sensitive valuable carotenoids. Soft boiled, poached, sunny side up, or raw eggs are best. Raw eggs may be eaten if they come from a reliable organic source and are washed prior to cracking. Samonella travels on the shell of the egg and enters the egg from the outside, so washing eggs with hot sudsy water minimizes exposure.

Avoid all processed and fried foods, sugar and sugar products, refined, simple carbohydrates, alcohol, and unhealthy hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils. Milk and dairy products should be consumed sparingly, and preferably raw and organic. Avoid conventional flesh foods and overcooked/grilled meats. In addition, test for food allergies and sensitivities and eliminate those foods that test positive.

Also be sure to drink plenty of pure, filtered water throughout the day, at least half your body weight in ounces, to help flush out accumulated debris in the eye drainage channels. Proper hydration is also essential for maintaining the suppleness of the eyes’ lenses. Fresh raw green juices are also an important addition to one`s daily food plan. See the recipe section for green juice suggestions.

It is important to not add further toxicity to your system so try to adhere to the following:

  • Do not consume any artificial sweeteners, such as Splenda, NutraSweet or Aspartame
  • Do not consume high fructose corn syrup or mono-sodium glutamate.
  • Do not drink any carbonated beverages.
  • Avoid all fast food restaurants.
  • Avoid all canned food.
  • Eliminate conventional dairy products.  The best dairy products are raw, unpasteurised and homogenised dairy from grass fed cows.  If this is unavailable, then buy organic dairy.
  • Avoid conventional beef.  The best beef is organic grass fed beef. www.grasslandbeef.com The second best is organic meat; this includes beef, veal, lamb, chicken and turkey.

Supplements:

Useful nutrients include vitamin A, vitamin B complex, vitamin C, vitamin E, beta-carotene, flavonoids, lutein, N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC), riboflavin, selenium, taurine, zeaxthanin, and zinc.

  • Take Vitamin D3 50,000-100,000 International Units a day  for periods of 4 weeks at a time.
  • Wholefood supplements are the best way of ensuring your nutritional needs are met.  The best we know on the market is Kevin Trudeau’s “KT Daily” product.  You can find more details here.
  • Take an Omega 3 supplement:

Krill oil

Fish oil
