Parkinsons Eye Problems

Are you having issues with your eyes? Perhaps dry eyes. Perhaps double vision. Perhaps jittery eyes.

My uncle Gordon Ward developed advanced cataracts 15 years ago. A former college president and Wyoming State Legislator, Gordon loved to play tennis, read books and write about history. Cataracts made it so difficult to read that Gordon reluctantly decided to have cataract surgery, one eye at a time. There was no other good options 15 years ago.

Cataract surgery on his first eye healed beautifully. Surgery on the second eye was a miserable flop. Gordon developed double vision and was essentially blinded. He could not read. He could no longer play tennis. It was all a horrible shock.

My Aunt Betty said that the stress of cataract surgery caused Gordon to begin experiencing the symptoms of Parkinson’s. He was diagnosed shortly after his failed surgery. Had Gordon been able to see, I believe he would still be playing tennis today at the age of 81. He died in the spring of 2009.

As part of my work to identify natural remedies, I am excited to report that I have located the source of a natural anti-oxidant eye drop that reverses cataracts and addresses other eye problems caused by inflammation. Had this antioxidant therapy been available to Gordon 15 years ago, he could have reversed his cataracts without having to resort to cataract surgery.

The discovery of this remedy originated with the work of a Russian medical researcher Dr. Mark Babizhayev, Ph.D. who made the simple but profound observation that people who had no cataract problems had sufficient levels of N-Acetyl-Carnosine in their eyes. This substance happens to be a natural antioxidant. People with cataracts had insufficient levels of N-Acetyl-Carnosine in their eyes.

Dr. Babizhayev took his research to the second level by developing eye drops that contained N-Acetyl-Carnosine. He then began doing research to see if the new antioxidant eye therapy worked.

Studies confirmed his hypothesis. Add N-Acetyl-Carnosine to the eyes and the eyes heal themselves. Cataracts are reversed. Most eye problems are caused by inflammation. The eye drops thus help reverse many eye problems. Isn’t that totally cool?

In addition, the eyes are physically located next to the part of the brain that is responsible for manufacturing dopamine.  I am wondering if healing eye problems might have an indirect, but positive impact on Parkinson’s symptoms in general.  The jury is still out on that one, but you never know…  You can find more information about this discovery by visiting :
