Eye Problems

Eye Problems

Two weeks ago I noticed difficulty seeing out of my right eye. I couldn’t read text on the computer or on paper, it was too blurry. After two visits to the UC Berkeley Meredith Morgan Eye Center and a battery of blood tests to rule out underlying issues, I’ve been diagnosed with non-ischemic central retinal vein occlusion with mild macular edema. The doctors have been saying “You’re too young for this disorder”. But, except for some risk factors that I don’t have, this disorder is idiopathic, which means that no one knows why I got it. And there’s no treatment for the main symptoms. Just wait and hope it gets better. My doctor, an expert in the field, told me today that 1/3 get better, 1/3 stay the same, 1/3 get worse.

I’ve occasionally been bumping into things on my right side. I can’t read with my right eye… I’m typing this keeping my right eye shut. Moving around takes more energy because I have to focus more on where I’m going. My depth perception is much worse, and my ability to discriminate objects at a distance is reduced. This sucks.

I’ll be going for an eye treatment soon to address the macular edema. Please wish me good luck.

Some details about how it started: on Thursday October 20th I woke up and stumbled around the bedroom more than usual. My right eye was seeing spots and my vision was a lot darker than my left. I assumed that I had rolled onto my right eye with my pillow and went on with my day. Friday the same thing happened. Saturday wasn’t as bad in the morning but at around 9:30pm I was reading on my computer, and thinking something was wrong, I closed my left eye. I noticed several places in my vision that were hazy. It was like I was looking through a glass pane with several water drops drizzled across it. Within a few minutes, I called the 24 hour line at Meredith Morgan Eye Center.

    I would suggest actively cutting back on commercial salt, research parasite detox options, there is an excellent kit available at most health food stores, and add 5 ground whole cloves to the kit program by the kit instructions by option to use pestle and morter then placing the grounds into gel or vegan clear capsule and take with the kit plant capsules. Also, honestly eat more carrots, not ‘crazy’ but actively add carrots daily otherwise a vitamin k and separate c supplements. C and K are great for eyes and it is natural to get various parasites in the eyes from air and general activities. It will probably take a few weeks to “see” results. As always no guarantees as each man\womb is different, but can’t hurt.
