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.

There are some methods which can help you reduce the redness and swell. Wash your eyes with cold water, the cool temperature can reduce the puffiness. You can also grasp a bottle whatever it is in your freezer to cover on your eyes. If you have cucumbers in your freezer, cut them into slices then cover it on your eyes. Eyes drop can be used to reduce the redness. Remember to remove your makeup, if you had any, and don't rub your eyes, for it would make things worse. That's all I can tell, Wish you happy every day!
I think there must be something bad happened to your eye health, because as you can see, poor night vision is a health risk sign you know? Which indicates your health problem. Anyway, generally speaking, poor night vision is resulted from a lack of some vitamins such as B, E or A.

Backing to topic no its not because blood pressure dont have anything to vitreous, only in rare case when capiliares burst you can see blood as a floaters, but vitreous treat blood as a foregin object therefore blood will be absorbed
Pink would be between red and orange in the light spectrum. Since the glasses are pink that means they absorb every color except pink rather than absorb the pink light it is reflected. I think dark sunglasses are the best choice for protection because they absorb all light. However, though blues, pinks, ect.are just cosmetic tints, the most important thing is the UV protection they give, which has nothing to do with the color.
Hello, the right fit and frame of glasses can be difficult to find. Generally, there are three important measurements that you can use to choose the right size of glasses and the three measurements are available inside of eyeglass frames. Those are the size of the lenses, the bridge size and the temple length, which is where the arms bend to hook over the ears. So check your face size and find out the numbers for you can the relevant fit glasses. Good luck!

Well, generally speaking, it can be normal to have painful eyes after you have taken the eye exam. In common, when you have an eye exam, it will make your eyes focus on the points for a long time. And then the light can go through your eyes to check it. In this way, it can lead to eye strain. And then lead to eye pressure. Finally, it will just cause eye pain sometime. Also, eye pressure can lead to some eye problems, such as itchy eyes.
If the fossil sunglasses are real, you may see the brand print on the frame is in the smooth print mark. You can touch it with your fingers to feel. And from the label, you can check the number from the telephone or other ways to prove its realness. In addition, you can observe its details, such as the balancing character. If it is fake, all above ones may have wrong in one side.
