  • Witch hazel is a magic stuff which can be helpful when your eyes get infection. They can help you to reduced the dark circle under your eyes. You can use some witch hazel essential oil to relieve your eyes. Put the a drop of witch hazel essential oil in humidifier. Or you can use them as tea. They won't lead to eye wrinkles.

  • 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.

  • Why do you want to polish your plastic lenses? Are there some scratches on the lenses? Plastic lenses are easier to get scratches. So we must put them in the case if we don't need to use them. I suggest you to have your plastic lenses coated next time. Opticians will have new glass lenses coated. There is a kind of hard coating which is scratch resistance. It can protect the lenses. If you want to polish your lenses, I suggest you to turn to an optician. Good luck!
