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
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
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.

The warm water may be disrupting bacteria in your eye to cause the pink eyes.
We can just remove mild scratches from our lenses. As to the deep lenses, there is no way to get rid of them. If you just have mild scratches on your lenses, you can buy a kind of cleanser from a nearby optician. The optician knows which kind of cleanser you want. But the cleanser will remove the coating as well, so your sunglasses can't block harmful UV rays any more. If you have deep scratches on your lenses, you'd better buy a pair of new sunglasses.
I want to know the reason of slightly bulge that out from your eye socket. Usually, there has two way lead to this symptom, one is myopia even pseudomyopia, eyes fatigue will lead to these symptom. Take eyes exercise and massage will remit the symptom, even make up will help the appearance right away. The other reason may be hyperthyroidism, in this situation, I suggest you go to hospital to check the level of thyroxine, if it is, you would have some medicine which recommended by doctor to release asthenopia. The last reason of it is ethmoiditis, this one must cure by surgery.
I also heard that the eye color will change. But I don't believe it. Maybe the guys just have some disease so that his or her eye color changes. And I also heard that there are at least two genes control eye color and usually the genes work in complicated ways. Is there any relation with the genes? Maybe there are more genes involved in this process.
I have mild myopia so I can't see things in the distance clearly. I bought a pair of glasses to help correct my vision problem. But I will take off my glasses when I want to read. You can take off your glasses to read books next time if you also have mild myopia. After reading, I will put on my glasses, so I can see things in the distance clearly.
You eyes will appear red if you drink too much coffee. Because the caffeine may keep you alert all the time, then you'll possibly get exhausted. Bloodshot eyes show up as the symptom, it denote strain and fatigue. Do not drink too much coffee, especially when you're under pressure. Once you get red eyes, stop drinking coffee, and relax more. Use some artificial tears to relieve your eyes.
Oakley is a world-famous brand of sunglasses. Since the foundation of the company in 1975, the company has already had 25000 retail stores in as many as 100 countries. The material of making sunglasses is Plutonite. It has strong ability of preventing ultraviolet rays and the definition of its sunglasses exceeds the standard of ANSI industry. Oakley has many series products of polarized sunglasses. For example, the Polarized Jupiter and the Polarized Frogskins LX are good polarized sunglasses to choose from.
Well, in my opinion, it will be fine for you to donate blood even if you have been suffering from pink eyes. And as we know that pink eye is a kind of inflammation in the eyes. And it is mostly caused by allergies, and infection in eyes. Of course, when it occurs, your eyes will be red, itchy, and watery. And some eye discharges can occur too. But on the other hand, it will just be fine to have blood donation, so you do not need to worry about it.
Well, perhaps there is something wrong with your eye skin. Anyway, it would be an awful thing to have black eyes, which make you less attractive and confident. So, it is true that vaseline is a very natural stuff, which would do your skin a lot of good. But since your eyes are quite sensitive, you'd better not do that. Instead, I recommend that you get some nice cosmetics with retin A or some other special products designed for black eyes. Also, try to pay attention to what you eat and how you rest.
