I want to share what I've been doing for my pseudoexfoliation glaucoma. I found out ten years ago and have had numerous lasers and drops with no luck in lowering my OP. I tried numerous things over the years with no success.

I started juicing beets, carrots, celery, lemon and apple every morning and drinking it down immediately.

Since I've been juicing, it's been three months now, my OP is down to 16 from 30. I've had my eyes checked twice so far and it's still normal. Thought I would share in case anyone else is as frustrated as I was. Juicing may not be the most convenient thing to do every day but the results are worth it.

My wife had visual fields test due to risk of glaucoma. Upper left quadrant was dark. MRI revealed white mass exerting pressure on vision region of brain. I assumed it was calcium. I remembered IP6. She took dosage mentioned above and in 10 days, her vision in that quadrant had returned.

I had a glaucoma pressure over 18-20, which is not bad, but enough pressure to be bother me. What I found is Black seed oil and dried seeds which helped me really well.

5-7 pieces of black seeds, intake morning and night before meal at the beginning, and now black seeds oil 1 teaspoons x 2, morning and evening before meal/without it.

I buy my black seeds oil from Amazon/ebay, cold pressed oil and organic - price $ 25-27/piece, and dried black seeds from local market of Somali/Pakistani/Indian groceries that you find in your area.

Good luck!

Hi, I am 47 years old and I have glacoma since 15 years, 10 years ago I read about a spanish doctor cured the glacoma with

1) omega three
2) vitamin C
3) gingko biloba

My visual field test showed excellant improvment, now the doctors tell me that I dont have glacoma, I am a glacoma suspect now, the pressure in the eye is less, and I am not using my eye drops regularly, still getting better, also using sea salt (coocking&eating) instead of regular salt. My daily dosees are:1000 mg vitamin C , 1 tablet gingko biloba, one soft gel fish oil for the omega three. So I wish this can help. I will try to find the link for the spanish doctor and post it here. God bless you all.
