General Impression:

I went in today to see Dr. Thompson along with my four children to get our eyes checked and surprisingly I had a very good experience. Maria the lady at the front desk was very nice and Dr. Thompson was very quick and efficient in seeing us and was very nice in explaining what problems we had. This was my second visit and I will continue to come back. I definitely recommend him to any mom who needs to come in with her kids.

  • Migraine is a chronic disease characterized as headaches, resulting from a series complicated reaction between nervous system and vascular system as well as some alterations in brain. Migraine is commonly associated with headaches. Usually the headache happens to just one temple, described as throbbing and intense pain. Sympathetic nervous system is stimulated when migraine attacks. The sympathetic nervous system is believed to control the primitives respond to stress and pain, which is called fight or flight response. It causes many symptoms coming with migraine attacks, including nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. These increased sympathetic activities make patient very sensitive to light and sound, that is why most migraine patients would like to lie in a quiet and dark room. It is really difficult to say how long does it last. Attacks of migraine last from hours to days. Stay in quiet and dark room to relax. Apply some compress on head if it could make you feel better. Actually if possible, have a sleeping would be great for migraine sufferer, because usually migraine can't awaken people in sleeping. Do a little massage on the head and see if it can make your feel more comfortable. To avoid migraine, you should quit smoking and avoid food rich in tyramine. Live a healthy life with exercises and sufficient sleeping could lower the risk of migraine attack. Acupuncture is a good treatment for migraine too.

  • First of all, you should have good sleep in the next days. Second, you can drink water as much as you can. If it is possible, 6 cups of days at least. But it should not be coke or coffee, as they will consume the water in your body. Do not wear contacts in the flowing days and stay in air-condition house, so, you should stay in moist house. You also should avoid to looking to drying machine or electrical fans directly. You can drop some artificial tears, but it could not more than 6 times a day.

  • Many years ago,Limited by medical standards, patients have to wait for the cataract to get ripe and then they can have it removed. But now patients can decide to have surgery whenever they feel annoyed by the impaired vision if they are ready.

  • Toric lenses are a type of contact lens which are used to correct astigmatism. Unlike regular contact lenses, toric lenses are designed for two purposes, one is for correcting astigmatism and one is for correcting vision.

  • There is no much useful home remedy for you. You can try to wash the with cold water to relieve the pain and itch. Avoid computer and television and sleep more.

  • If you want to make your eyes look oval, you could use the eyeliner or other eye make up to get it. In addition, you could also use the colored contact lenses to make your eyes look oval. There are many colors of contact lenses. You could choose the favorite color to match with your clothing.

  • It is normal to get eye twitch when you are tired. In fact, tired eyes, dry eyes, lacking of sleep and too much coffee intake can cause twitching eyes. As your description, your twitching eyes are caused by tired eyes, just take a rest, it will recover. Besides, get enough sleep can also help your eyes.

  • You know, as the development of the society, a great number of people will get this symptom from different reasons. Somebody get it just because of overworking, others may be get it by don't have a regular bedtime. In those state, because your eyes couldn't get a good blood circulations that caused it became black. If you want to get rid of it, I suggest you pay attention to rest and keep a regular bedtime. The most importance is before going to sleep at night with hot towel to the area for a few minutes.

  • If the blood from the guy who has no disease gets into your eyes, you just wash it out as soon as possible with clean water. If the blood is from the guy with some disease, you'd better go to wash it firstly and then go to have a full check on the eyes in the hospital. You must keep in mind that you should wash it immediately.

  • 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.
