  • Firmoo Answers
  • In February 1993, I began blinking excessively and uncontrollably. As it became worse, I went
    to a number of eye doctors. They all agreed that my vision was not impaired and thought the
    problem was dry eye and prescribed drops. They did not help. The others thought the cause
    was nerves, but it was not that either.

    My Blepharospasm Symptoms Intensify

    When I coached my sons' basketball games, I not only would miss half of the games caused by
    the blinking; I would wear a baseball cap and sunglasses to hide my eyes.

    When at a restaurant, my sons, sitting opposite me, would turn away to avoid looking at my
    eyes twitching. They joked about it, not realizing the discomfort and embarrassment I felt. My
    wife had to do the weekend driving since I could not. The eye twitching always seemed to
    intensify when I was in a moving vehicle. It did not matter if I was driving or someone else. My
    90 mile daily round trip to work became a nightmare. Thankfully, I was able to avoid having any
    accidents.

    Two Years and Not a Solution

    Two years later, I was quite concerned and upset. By this time my quality of life had become
    worse. Being a corporate controller, I felt my future and family%u2019s financial security were
    threatened.

    In June, 1995, I found a local doctor who diagnosed my symptoms as a rare neurological
    disorder called Blepharospasm. It is the result of %u201Cfaulty%u201D brain signals sent to the optic
    muscles, forcing them to contract, hence the twitching. With the cause being unknown, there
    was no hope of relief. (I would later find relief by accident). It is not life-threatening but
    could be debilitating. In the worst cases, the sufferer would be considered legally blind even
    though their vision may be 20-20.

    Injecting Botox Resulted in Some Relief

    A neurologist told me that the preferred treatment was injecting small doses of Botox
    (Botulinum toxin) into the eyelids. This would later become popular to get rid of wrinkles. My
    wife became very concerned when we learned from the neurologist that it was Botulinum that
    would be injected into my eyelids. I said, %u201CI came for relief so let's do it.%u201D I was never fond of
    injections, but relief was my first priority.

    The Botox took several days to be effective and did provide some relief. However, the affect on
    my smile was strange and it made my eyes look artificial. It cost about $400 and lasted only
    six weeks, although most people experienced relief for six months. After my second treatment, I
    began to question the future affect. I went for a second opinion and when I could not
    be assured of its safety, I decided to stop.

    A Healthy Solution Seemed Hopeful

    Several weeks later, I learned of a powerful, natural and organic whole food supplement. It's a
    one of a kind whole food that is loaded with nutrition. I decided to try it.

    When I would back out of my driveway to go to work, the spasms would begin. They would not
    stop until the car was parked. Six weeks after taking this natural health food, my wife made me
    realize that I had not had any spasms all week. I said, "Could it be that the Blepharospasm is
    caused from a nutritional deficiency?"

    The Quest to Prove That I Had Found an Alternative Solution That Really Worked

    I spent the next twelve years trying to convince the medical community that I had discovered
    something remarkable. No one would listen. During this time I did introduce the food to sixteen
    individuals with Blepharospasm and seven told me it helped them.

    Sometime later I was offered a double-blind study at the Wilmer Eye Opthomological Institute of
    the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore, Maryland. I was overwhelmed and
    flattered. Six years later the results of the study, where I was mentioned twice, was published.
    The article appeared in The Journal of Ophthalmology, July, 2004 Issue Volume 138; Issue
    1 pages 18 %u2013 32.

    It was stated to me that %u201CThe food is safe and I expect it to help many more people. I would
    recommend it for all who wish to try it for several months.%u201D

    The results noted that the food was safe, helped some, with no side effects.

    Helping Other Blepharospasm Sufferers Get Relief

    People are still suffering and happily I am still near symptom-free. Perhaps now is the time I
    will be heard.

    In the summer of 2005 I received an honor from the Dystonia Foundation being recognized
    with a 2005 Courage Award. It was received for inspiring people with my vitality. Dystonia is the
    name of movement disorders with Blepharospasm being one of six.

    I believe now is the time to resurrect what I thought was my calling %u2013 to give relief to sufferers.
    Since the Internet has become mainstream, it became clear the sufferers would be better
    served by reaching out to them instead of the medical community.

    There are two factors to accomplish better health. They are cleansing and nutrition. Cleansing
    is necessary to free the body of toxins and other harmful chemicals. Nutrition will nourish the
    body to strengthen it and provide improved functioning.

    I am very proud of the fact that during the last several years I have helped nearly 40
    sufferers and the list keeps growing weekly. I am also happy about the fact that I have
    now reached 26 countries and 49 states.

  • $300 dollars ? Are you kidding me ? Almost more expensive than a designer pair ! Your doctor definitely wanted to get benefits from you . Of course you can get it cheaper somewhere else .

  • It could be simple dry eyes, and it could be iritis. Use some artificial tears and see if it helps. If it does, great, keep using it. If it doesn't, you really should be seen by an ophthalmologist!

  • Well, yes, actually old people have to wear reading glasses to have reading. And we can say that they get presbyopia, which is a condition, caused by aging. When old people get this kind of disease, it will be difficult to read small words at close distances or to work on the computer for long periods of time. Of course, the most common reason why people get presbyopia, it can be related to aging. According to some researches, age-related changes will occur within the proteins in the lens, and then, it will make the lens harder and less elastic over time. That is why when we get older, the presbyopia will occur and it may become worse. And then, reading glasses are needed to have reading.

  • Pain around the eye socket is a problem that many of us will have experienced at some time or other and that can have many causes. Bruising is one of causes that leads to pain around eye sockets.

  • Check out nectar sunglasses as well...or blenders...or DANG shades. They all have the same products at similar pricepoints

  • Ok, it seems that you would like to make up yourself on a regular basis, which could make you appear more awesome and attractive. However, there are inevitably some consequences, because the makeups are quite irritated sometimes, some of them contain some chemicals , some would be allergic to your skin, and you will be asked to thoroughly wash them off before sleep. Anyway, if you rely on them too much, you indeed age faster. So, just try to use less and pay more attention to exercise and your diet.

  • Well, I can see that you are looking for a pair of beautiful contact lenses in order to get yourself appear to be attractive and confident. As a matter of fact, there are many contact lenses producers in the world, however, sometimes we need to trust the power of brands because brands are what we could beliebe. Thus, I recommend John ACUVUE to you, which is quite reliable and you could get them through the web, their website offer mail order service.

  • It is possible to have pinguecula from allergies. Pinguecula is the collagen fiber degeneration. The pinguecula is the white-yellowish deposit of this fiber on sclera. In most cases it appears in the corner near to nose. The most common causes of pinguecula is the exposure to sunrays or winds. Long-time exposure to UV rays would make it a higher risk to develop pinguecula. UV rays exposure also makes the bump grow. Meanwhile allergies can also cause pinguecula fomation, because anything causes irritations to eyes would cause a pinguecula to grow, including allergic to pollen, bacterial or viral infections. The yellowish bump is very annoying, but no other severe impacts to vision. But we know that the yellowish bump on the sclera makes people look old, so most people want to prevent it. I think it is better to wear a pair of sunglasses to protect eyes from damages from sunrays and winds. Take a healthy diet rich in nutrition which are good for eyes, for example vitamins, omega-3 fatty and so on.
