Cure Eye Floaters Naturally

Eye Floaters No More

Eye Floaters (Also known as Eye Flashes) are deposits of various sizes and shapes that float within the eye. They are caused by degenerative changes of the vitreous humour the clear gel that fills the eyeball. Eye infections, inflammation, wounds and damage to the eye can lead to eye floaters. A sudden increase in floaters can be one of the first signs of retinal detachment or other severe eye conditions. In Eye Floaters No More, you'll discover: How to finally get rid of your stressful eye floaters, blocks of vision, the flashing lights using a safe, natural and easy system. Eliminate your annoying eye floaters from the comfort of your home. How to prevent more eye floaters from forming. How to find out if your eye floaters are a sign of other eye conditions.

My Eye Floaters No More Review

Highly Recommended

I've really worked on the chapters in this ebook and can only say that if you put in the time you will never revert back to your old methods.

Overall my first impression of this ebook is good. I think it was sincerely written and looks to be very helpful.

Macular Degeneration and Cataracts

The eye is at particular risk of oxidative damage due to high oxygen concentrations, large amounts of oxidizable fatty acids in the retina, and exposure to ultraviolet rays. In Western countries, age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of blindness among older people. Cataracts are also widespread among the elderly and occur when the lens is unable to function properly due to the formation of opacities within the lens. These develop when proteins in the eye are damaged by photooxidation these damaged proteins build up, clump, and precipitate. It has been proposed that antioxidants may prevent cellular damage in the eye by reacting with free radicals produced during the process of light absorption.

Reducing Risk Of Macular Degeneration

Lycopene supplements are sometimes used to reduce the risk of developing macular degeneration and generally support eye health. In general, It Is taken In combination with other carotenoids, such as zeaxanthin and lutein, for this indication for which there is supportive evidence (Cardinault et al 2005). Few studies are available to determine whether lycopene as a sole agent exerts clinically significant protective effects. One cohort study of 1 59 older people found no inverse association between lycopene intake and 5-year incidence of early age-related macular degeneration (ARMD) (Flood et al 2002). Alternatively, a recent study comparing 34 patients with ARMD to 21 control subjects found that of the serum carotenoid concentrations measured, only lycopene was decreased significantly in the serum LDLand HDL fractions (P< 0.05).

Determination Of Adequacy Adequacy

In the derivation of Estimated Average Requirements (EARs) or Adequate Intakes (AIs), close attention has been paid to the determination of the most appropriate indicators of adequacy. A key question is, Adequate for what In many cases, a continuum of benefits may be ascribed to various levels of intake of the same nutrient. One criterion may be deemed the most appropriate to determine the risk that an individual will become deficient in the nutrient, whereas another may relate to reducing the risk of a chronic degenerative disease, such as certain neurodegenerative diseases, cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes mellitus, or age-related macular degeneration.

Ha Degradation In Vivo Is A Prerequesite For Angiogenesis

The occurrence of high levels of HA in avascular tissues, such as cartilage and vitreous humour, and at relatively avascular sites, such as the desmoplastic region of invasive tumours, suggests that extracellular matrix HA also inhibits angiogenesis in vivo (16). The recent report that vascularisation of cartilage, in vivo, requires prior degradation of its HA matrix, gives added support to this hypothesis (12). Furthermore, in vivo studies indicate that high concentrations of exogenous macromolecular hyaluronan can inhibit neovascularization during granulation tissue formation (21,48) or induce regression of the immature capillary plexus in the developing chick limb bud (Table.3) (49). In contrast, exogenous OHA has consistently stimulated angiogenesis in different in vivo models, including the chick chorioallantoic membrane assay (23) both wound healing and graft models (50,51, West et al., in preparation), and after subcutaneous implantation or topical application (52). Using the...

Distribution and Impact on Health

The finding that lutein and zeaxanthin are accumulated in the macula lutea of the eye has led to the hope that dietary supplementation might reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), which affects the central portion of the retina and is the most common cause of irreversible blindness in the Western world. Some studies have indicated benefits of diets supplemented with lutein and zeaxanthin from spinach in preventing AMD others found no significant correlation between plasma levels of these carotenoids and reduced risk of AMD. Lutein, zeaxanthin, and a zeaxanthin stereoisomer 3R, 3'S( meso)-zeaxanthin form the yellow pigment of the macula lutea. 3R, 3'S( meso)-zeaxanthin is not found in either food or plasma in significant amounts. Also notable is that, in most food consumed in large quantities, the concentration of lutein is much greater than that of zeaxanthin (e.g., see Table 1, spinach, kale, broccoli, tomato). The yellow pigment of the macula is located in the...

Ophthalmic Diseases

Control of angiogenesis in the retina is essential to the preservation of vision. Ocular neovascularization (NV) is a major threat to vision and a complicating feature of many eye diseases, including proliferative diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration, and retinopathy of prematurity. Regulation of vascularization in the mature retina involves a balance between endogenous positive growth factors (e.g., vascular endothelial growth factor), and inhibition of angio-genesis e.g., pigment epithelium-derived factor (PEDF) . Several studies examined ocular administration of AAV vectors to mice exhibiting ischemia-induced retinal NV. Expression of antiangiogenic proteins, either PEDF or the Kringle domains 1-3 of angiostatin (K1K3), gave sustained therapeutic levels of PEDF and K1K3 in the mouse eye and significantly reduced the level of retinal NV (266,267). Expression of a soluble VEGF receptor also led to significant reduction in the number of neovascular endothelial cells...

Target Tissues And Therapeutic Models

A related area that shows promise is the delivery of genes to the eye for treatment of various types of retinopathies, including macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy (121-125). This interest springs, largely, from the observation that lentiviral vectors seem to have particular tropism for pig-mented retinal epithelial cells in several species. Most proposals center on preventing the disorganized angiogenesis that follows disease onset and try to prevent it as it exacerbates clinical symptoms. There is currently a clinical trial underway using adenoviral vectors encoding the angiogenesis inhibitor pigment derived epithelium factor (126), but presumably len-

Pharmacological Uses of Vitamin E

There are no established pharmacological uses of vitamin E except for the protection ofpreterminfants exposed to highpartialpressure oxygen, who may develop the retinopathy of prematurity (retrolental fibroplasia) however, even here, the protective effect of vitamin E is controversial, and it is not routinely recommended (Phelps, 1987). There is some evidence that age-related macular degeneration is also associated with oxidative damage and thathigh circulating concentrations of vitamin E may be protective, although there is no evidence from intervention studies (Beatty et al., 2000).

Cofactor Deficiencies

Symptoms vary with the complementation group, but can include metabolic acidosis, hypotonia, developmental delay, macular degeneration, and megaloblastic anemia. Treatment with hydroxo-cobalamin corrects some of the biochemical derangements, especially in Cbl A and B. Treatment is less successful in the other groups.

Free radicals and antioxidants

Various normal reactions and functions generate reactive oxygen species (ROS) and other compounds that are characterized by their high potential for causing oxidative damage to the body's DNA. proteins, membranes, and other components. Several of these compounds arc called free radicals because they contain an unpaired electron-Free radicals have a strong propensity to donate their unpaired electron to another compound or to abstract an electron from elsewhere to complement their own unpaired one. Their high and unspecilic reactivity gives them the power to modify most biological macromolecules and disrupt their structure. These relentless attacks are thought to be a major cause for progressive functional decline with aging (e.g. macular degeneration) anil major chronic diseases of adulthood, including cardiovascular disease, cancer, and rheumatoid arthritis. Nonetheless, some ROS are of ital importance for signaling and immune defense, and their elimination would probably be harmful....

Micronutrient Deficiency

There is a rising trend toward dietary supplementation with pharmaceutical preparations containing large doses of vitamins and minerals, based on conclusions drawn from the results of several studies. Available evidence derived from human and animal studies indicates that antioxidant micronutrients, mainly vitamins A, C and E, may play a role in boosting immunity, preventing neoplastic disease, and preventing or retarding the progression of several degenerative diseases, such as atherosclerosis. Vitamins E and C have also been shown to reduce low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels and increase high-density lipoprotein (HDL) levels, in addition to lowering fasting plasma insulin levels and improving insulin efficiency. Epidemiological studies have suggested a protective role for antiox-idants such as vitamin C, vitamin E, -carotene, and glutathione in macular degeneration and cataracts. Nevertheless, evidence derived from other epidemio-logical studies suggests that...

Eyes Windows to the Soul

Are you bothered by spots or floaters in front of your eyes Commonly called vitreous floaters, these annoying events are often self-correcting by adding one organic carrot, raw or grated, on your mixed green salad. overworked and stressed livers are the storage house of the fat soluble vitamin A that is critical for proper eye health. Minimize toxic foods and beverages that promote liver stress. Have your healthcare physician rule out any other cause for peace of mind. And then enjoy your new level of health.

Xanthophylls Lutein and Zeaxanthin

The structural isomers lutein and zeaxanthin are non-provitamin A carotenoids that are also measurable in human blood and tissues. Lutein and zea-xanthin have been identified as the xanthophylls that constitute the macular pigment of the human retina. The relative concentration of lutein to zeaxanthin in the macula is distinctive. Zeaxanthin is more centralized and lutein predominates towards the outer area of the macula. A putative xanthophyll-binding protein has also been described, which may explain the high variability among people to accumulate these carotenoids into eye tissues. Increased lutein intake from both food sources and supplements is positively correlated with increased macular pigment density, which is theorized to lower risk for macular degeneration. AMD is the leading cause of irreversible blindness in the elderly in developed countries. AMD adversely affects the central field of vision and the ability to see fine detail. Some, but not all, population studies...

Hyperhomocysteinaemia

Together with vitamins B12 and B6, folic acid has been shown to reduce high plasma levels of homocysteine. Of the three, folate appears to have the strongest activity (Voutilainen et al 2001). Although elevated homocysteine has been implicated as a risk factor in cardiovascular disease (including atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease), cerebrovascular disease, peripheral vascular disease and venous thromboembolism (Clarke et al 1991, den Heijer 1996, Malinow et al 1989, Selhub 1995), exudative age-related macular degeneration, noise-related hearing loss, cognitive dysfunction, and adverse pregnancy outcomes (Gok et al 2004, Nowak et al 2005), cognitive dysfunction, and adverse pregnancy outcomes (Bjorke Monsen & Ueland 2003), clinical trials are currently underway to determine the clinical relevance of this association.

Ivclinical Indications

Extract is much more recent and results from research inspired not by traditional medicine but linked instead to the development of pharmacology. A first extract was marketed in 1965 in Germany by Dr. Willmar Schwabe Company. EGb 761 was first registered in France in 1974 and sold in 1975 by Institut Ipsen (now Ipsen Pharma) under the trademark Tanakan and in Germany as Rokan by Intersan in 1978 and as Tebonin forte by Dr. Willmar Schwabe Company in 1982. Its first therapeutic indications involved circulatory disturbances. More recently, the therapeutic effects that have been studied most are those affecting the psychobehavioral disorders associated with aging. These include cognitive disturbances, such as age-related memory disorders (grouped together today as mild cognitive impairment, MCI), or dementia, such as Alzheimer's disease. Whether these various indications (Alzheimer's disease, in particular), are included in the approved indications varies from country to country. EGb 761...

Ophthalmic Conditions

Bilberry preparations have been used to improve poor night vision, light adaptation and photophobia, myopia and to prevent or retard diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and cataracts. Primarily the collagen-enhancing and antioxidant activities of bilberry provide a theoretical basis for these indications. Visual acuity and light adaptation A systemic review of 12 placebo-controlled trials (5 RCTs and 7 placebo-controlled non-randomised trials) concluded that the 2007 Elsevier Australia One double-blind study involving 40 patients with diabetic and or hypertensive retinopathy showed that a dose of bilberry extract (Tegens ) equivalent to 160 mg anthocyanosides taken twice daily for 1 month significantly improved ophthalmoscopic parameters and angiographic parameters (Perossini 1987). Another study of 31 subjects with different forms of retinopathy (diabetic retinopathy, retinitis pigmentosa, macular degeneration or haemorrhage due to anticoagulant use) found that treatment with...

Conceptualization Of Depression In Older Adults

Late Life Depression Elderly

Z is a 75-year-old, widowed man who suffers from macular degeneration and diabetes, which resulted in above-the-knee amputation. He lives on the second floor of a walk-up building and has difficulty leaving his apartment because of his poor eyesight, and because his prosthesis no longer fits his leg since Mr. Z's weight loss of 15 pounds in the past year. His only income is social security, with which he barely makes ends meet. Since his eyesight began to fail and his disability increased, Mr. Z has difficulty sleeping, has little energy, has trouble gaining pleasure from activities that he once enjoyed, has trouble concentrating, and feels that life is not worth living. In addition, his eldest son needed temporarily a place to stay and asked persistently to move in with Mr. Z, a situation, which in the past has led to friction. The San Francisco based Home-Delivered Meals Program referred Mr. Z to the University of California-San Francisco (UCSF) Over-60 Clinic program for...

Nutritional Modification

Cataracts, senile macular degeneration, Impairment of immune function in older humans if inadequate amounts Increased amount in the diet is associated with delayed development of various forms of cataract Protective effect against the development of lung cancer in smokers Dietary supplementation associated with a decreased risk of age-related macular degeneration Absolute or relative deficiency associated with development of a number of cancers (not breast cancer) Dietary supplementation may decrease the rate of development of atherosclerosis Dietary deficits are associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease

Dietary Antioxidants and Human Health

There are many age-related disorders that, in theory at least, may be prevented or delayed by increased antioxidant defense. These disorders include arthritis, cancer, coronary heart disease, cataract, dementia, hypertension, macular degeneration, the metabolic complications of diabetes mellitus, and stroke. The rationale for prevention of disease by antioxidants is based on the following facts.

Deficiency Signs And Symptoms

Low serum beta-carotene and or low beta-carotene intake has also been associated with a number of clinical conditions, such as type 2 diabetes and poor glycaemic control (Abahusain et al 1999, Coudray et al 1997), non-melanoma and melanoma skin cancer (Gollnick & Siebenwirth 2002), breast cancer (Hacisevki et al 2003), rheumatoid arthritis (Kacsur et al 2002), Alzheimers dementia (Jimenez-Jimenez et al 1999) and age-related macular degeneration (Cooper et al 1999a).

Vogt KoyanagiHarada Disease

Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada (VKH), also known as an uveomeningoencephalitis, is characterized by a chronic granulomatous panuveitis affecting both of the eyes. Patients typically present with acute loss of vision and pain in one or both eyes. Inflammation can affect virtually any of the ocular structures. Early findings may include optic disc swelling, thickening of the posterior choroid with elevation of the peripapillary retinochoroidal layer, and exudative retinal detachments. Later findings may include extensive depigmentation of the fundus (called sunset glow fundus). The typical age of onset is 30 to 40 years of age women are affected more frequently than men and the disease occurs more frequently in pigmented ethnic groups.

Head and Neck Manifestations

Ocular inflammation affects 20 to 25 at disease onset and 50 to 65 during the disease course. Conjunctivitis, episcleritis, and scleritis are the most common manifestations (23). Nongranulomatous uveitis and keratitis can also occur and parallel other disease activities. Other eye manifestations include periorbital edema, chemosis, tarsitis, and proptosis from posterior choroiditis or a mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) type lymphoma. Rarely, retinal vasculitis, retinal detachment, retinal artery or vein occlusion,

Vitamin E Eyes

Vitamin E supplements flunked a test to see if they could reduce the risk of macular degeneration, a common cause of blindness in older people. (The macula is the center of the retina.) In an Australian study7 of 1,000 healthy volunteers aged 55 to 80, those who took 500 IU of vitamin E every day for four years were no less likely to be diagnosed with macular degeneration than those who took a placebo (sugar pill).

Bioactive compounds

Various bioactive constituents, such as carotenoids, anthocyanins, and phenolic compounds, which are associated with health promotion and disease prevention properties, are present in fruits and vegetables and have also been reported in corn. These bioactive compounds are present mainly in whole grains. Total phenolic and anthocyanin contents of different corn types are shown in Table 9.1. The anthocyanins present in blue corn come from cyanidin and malvidin (mainly from derivatives of the former), whereas in red corn they come from pelargonidin, cyanidin, and malvidin. The carotenoids with molecules containing oxygen are also known as xanthophylls, which are the source of yellow color in corn. The carotenoids vary in corn according to type and genotype. Yellow corn has more carotenoids than floury corn. Lutein and zeaxanthin are the major carotenoids in corn, and to a lesser extent, a- and b-cryptoxanthin and a- and b-carotene are present. Blue and white corn are low in lutein and...

Neural Plasticity

The perceptual consequences of lesion-induced plasticity can include, depending on the site of the lesion, a recovery of function or perceptual distortions. phantom limb sensation following limb amputation has been linked by Ram-achandran (1993) to experimentally induced somatosensory cortical plasticity. For arm amputations, there is often a sensation of stimulation of the absent hand when stroking the limb stump or the cheek. Human patients suffering a loss of central retinal input (by, e.g., age-related macular degeneration) often adopt a preferred retinal locus in the intact retina for targeting visually guided eye movements. Lesions in area MT, an area that plays a role in the perception of movement and the tracking of moving objects by the eyes, initially leads to a loss of smooth pursuit eye movements, but within a few days this function recovers. It is well known that following stroke there are varying degrees of functional recovery. Though this recovery had been thought to...

Immune Modulators

Feeding flax seed meal or fish meal to hens enriches the n-3 fatty acid content of the yolks of the eggs they lay. Consumption of these eggs increases the n-3 fatty acid content of plasma and cellular phospholipids and produces an improved blood lipid profile when compared with consumption of standard eggs. Egg yolk is not only a source of fatty acids, but also of carotenoids and immuno-globulins. The xanthophyll carotenoids zeaxanthin and its stereoisomer lutein are readily absorbed from egg yolk. Their consumption is associated with a decreased incidence of macular degeneration and cataract. Immunizing hens to specific pathogens and extracting the antibodies present in their egg yolks yields a functional food that has been shown to prevent enteric bacterial or viral infection in experimental animals.

Carotenoids

Carotenoids are a group of red and yellow fat-soluble compounds that pigment different types of plants, such as flowers, citrus fruits, tomatoes, and carrots, as well as animals, such as salmon, flamingos, and goldfish. The ingestion of carotenoids is essential to human health, not only because some convert into Vitamin A, but also because they have antioxidant effects, which may combat such diverse problems as cancer and macular degeneration. Carotenoids also help prevent heart disease by inhibiting low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol (the bad cholesterol) from sticking to artery walls and creating plaques. Lycopene is a carotenoid that offers protection to the prostate and the intestines. It has also been associated with a decreased risk of lung cancer. Found in tomatoes, it remains intact despite the processing involved in making ketchup and tomato paste. The carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin seem to aid in the prevention of cataracts and macular degeneration, and can be...
