I was taking Astaxanthin as an antioxidant and to lower blood pressure. Surprise instead my vision improved so much after a month that I stopped needing reading glasses. I started using them a year ago so I am in the early stages of vision deterioration. But I am wondering if this would help someone who has more significant vision issues. I take 12 mg capsule once a day.
My vision improved significantly within 30 minutes of taking Bilberry. After I took it I could lay my glasses down and could see well enough to find my glasses, peel a band aid etc. I couldn't do that before. Try it!

This is a quick report back on the vision issue. My left eye has improved markedly. It is back to normal. Normal for the left always has been a little weaker than my right as long as I can remember. What I did was eat a few carrots a day and a can of spinach also, with some Extra virgin Olive Oil, and I put this salt shaker lid with small holes in it over my eye and I covered by other eye with the palm of my hand and then I looked and read the smallest print I had and then lifted up my eyes to read typing on that I taped on the wall. I looked up and read a few seconds and then looked down to read the smallest print and then back again. Just a short time. Also, I now wear a pair of UV clear work goggles to look at the computer to cut down on the glare from the monitor.
The three prong approach on the vision issue in summary.
1. Carrots and spinach ( spinach contains high level of Lutein) (sic?) and EVOO ( the oil it to help the body absorb the oil soluble nutrition).
2. Eye exercises with a pin hole type thing over the eye.
3. Glare reducing clear glasses for reading the computer screen monitor.
I hope this helps somebody. Over and out.
I buy cold pressed castor oil. It is hexane free and organic, Have been using it for 3 months and it softens the eye lens and has helped me see better.
Hi, I had an accident last week where I had a detached lense. Then my fiancee told me abot your solution. Castor oil solution. Well now I am sufferring fog in my left eye. And it made things worse.
I have been taking 3 cayenne pepper caps a day and I cannot believe how i can see better. I am typing away without glasses this evening. My vision is +2.5 on the left and +2.00 on the right.
Also I suffer from a bad cocxyx (tail bone pain) since I started the caps my pain has halved. I read somewhere it heals nerves I think its true.
I am telling everyone about it.I take a capsule with everymeal.Its working. I had a brand new wart which became sore so I mixed cayenne pepper with a drop of water to make a little paste and put it on the wart. Put a bandaid on it and now its gone. Try it.

When I was very young, eye exercises brought my very deteriorating eyesight back to normal. I just used eye rotation. I actually got idea from reading the comics fun facts. At much older age eye exercise don't help as much. I benefit more by eye relaxation. Just goes to show that one must experiment to find out what works for their situation. Also remember that wearing eye glasses will worsen ones vision so unless you really have to use them, minimize wearing them.
Nobody has tried this here yet so I thought I'd put my 2cents in. I'm 40 yrs old and have always done, what I call eye exercises. You need to be outside in a large open area and what you do is hold your hand over one eye and look at something as far away as you can and then look at your other hand, close to your face. You do this back and forth as fast as you can for 30 seconds, and then switch eyes. You don't have to cover your eyes, but if you don't your domanant eye will get most of the workout. When you feel like your eyes have done pushups you have done a good eye workout. By the way I have 20/15 vision!

My Mother in law has a book about herbs -- growing them and the different things that they do.
The book is called "The book of herbs" and is by Dorothy Hall. This book was published in the 1970s, so if you are seeking it you may only find it used.
In this book, the author suggests that you can improve your eye sight by "boiling fennel leaves in water until the water is reduced by half" and applying this to the eyes every day when it's cool. She lists no exact qualities because she says these aren't necessary. The body will use what it needs and discard the rest.
She also suggests drinking fennel tea to keep slim. Maybe people are confusing fennel with fenugreek which would explain several recent comments about people gaining weight while taking fenugreek.
My question is, has anyone tried these remedies? I know that fennel is good for digestion, but for weight loss and eye sight too?
I have used cow ghee (clarified butter) into my eyes on a daily basis. This really works for stabilizing and even reducing myopia.
Ok - I have very dry skin. Cool air, wind, all of these make my skin feel tight, dry and itchy. Recently I discovered that ghee (clarified butter) rubbed on my skin at night made it feel much better and I wake up with younger skin. So - I started putting it near my eyes and on my eyelashes and it would get into my eyes and it felt good. I have had fatty deposits on my eyeballs for a while now and usually can't drive at night and have to wear reading glasses to read (i am 50) but imagine my surprise when I had to drive in the dark for an emergency and had no trouble! And also I found myself not reaching for my reading glasses as often!!! Now I put the ghee into my eyes every night. Also my eyes are whiter in the morning and I have almost no crows feet!!! Amazing!!!

Yes, 35% hydrogen peroxide diluted down to 3% works! I have LHON eye disease and it has greatly improved my vision.
Dear Ted. My wife was diagnosed with Stargardt disease in her eyes. I read two books (one minute cure by Madison Cavanaugh and hydrogen peroxide - medical miracle by William Campbell Douglas) and I found that macular degeneration was on a list of diseases that could had good results with hydrogen peroxide. I also read that specific cases had different treatments with hp. Do you know how hp can help someone to see improvement to his vision when he has stargardt disease? Is it possible to reverse the damage to his eyes? My wife also takes Tahitian Noni, two per day or super booster from Life extension, vitamin C 1000mg from Quest, super Zeaxanthine form Life extension, Omega 3 and every two days B Complex and stress care from Himalaya. We bought an 35% food grade 500ml and she wants to start taking it. Can you help us? Thank you!

For most of my life I have worn either contact lenses or glasses. As for contacts, I have preferred gas permeable lenses for the level of oxygen, to accommodate my natural tendency to have dry eyes, and to hold the shape of my eyes in order to prevent further astygmatism. Soft contacts would, after a short time, begin to move with my eye lids. (There are some gas permeable lenses that are, surprisingly, very, very comfortable.)
About a year ago I began to notice or to develop some allergic reactions to the contact cleaners/solutions I was using. I am not sure why or how this happened, and it is not important for the purpose of this post, but instead of trying a new brand I decided to go "natural. " Over the years I have been learning a great deal about these things, in part from this very website (i.e. All of you). So I am writing to share my experiment.
For an entire year I have been using hydrogen peroxide to clean and soak my gas permeable contact lenses and filtered water as a rinse. The results have been far better than expected. The contacts are as fresh as when I first wore them. No deterioration. This is due in part to the fact that I do not rub the contacts to clean them. I simply soak them in a 3 percent solution of common household hydrogen peroxide. (See ingredients when you buy your common household peroxide and be sure the only ingredients are purified water and peroxide to 3 percent strength. ) Then, I rinse them under a stream of filtered water from a plastic ketchup bottle. (The water comes from a "water station" hooked up to a public supply but filtered by reverse-osmosis.)
(I do not know about the dangers of getting hydrogen peroxide in your eyes, but it has happened to me on few occasions. Certainly painful, but obviously not deadly. Best to be certain with rinsing not only the contact but your hand/fingers.)
This system has not only solved my allergy issues but also extended the life of the contacts. It has also, I am certain, if not contributed to my eye health not subtracted from it. Finally, it is less expensive.
Note: There is also an over-the-counter brand of cleaner/disinfection for soft contacts that uses hydrogen peroxide as its main ingredient. I know little about this, as I have not worn soft contacts for many years.
