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.

I also heard that Bate's vision therapy can help improve our eyesight. But it is very expensive. So I am reluctant to have a try. Now you said that it doesn't help. So I won't consider it. I plan to consider lasik eye surgery. I really have very bad eyesight. Maybe lasik eye surgery can help me with this problem.
For gray hair, light brown, white and black may be the suitable color for you. Do not try any flaring color, such as red, yellow or blue. Because it won't look cool. Gray hair is a kind of cool and quiet color, so try to avoid such flaring color. Try them one by one then decide may be the best choose for you, as I can see.
It is a very vague conception of your words of "like sandpaper", because there has no photos to check, so the only thing I would do is to guess. From your description of this symptom I guess, it is maybe the squamous blepharitis. There has some other symptom for you to check if it is true the disease. Has your eyes feel burning, and the eyelids swollen or itching? Has your root of eyelids squamous? Some of the blepharitis will be accompanied with the conjunctivitis. All in all, all the above words are guess. You really need go to doctor for the details check, and keep your personal hygiene of your eyes, because it really very subtle and delicate. Keep your hand away from your eyes; avoid rubbing it and getting it infection. Relax it after long time work and prevent it from allergey of food. Ok, hope you all the best soon.
I bought a pair of titanium glasses from an online optical store. They are affordable. I am allergic to some plastic glasses. I heard that titanium glasses won't cause any allergy. So I have a try. Yes, they won't cause an allergy. I won't have itchy and red skin around my eyes. If you are also allergic to some kind of materials I strongly suggest you to buy a pair of titanium glasses. I also think they are good for every person. So you don't need to worry about this. But they are more expensive and of less style. Hope this helped!
Yes, It will be safe as long as you choose the right over counter reading glasses. In fact, Over counter reading glasses don't have any different from prescription reading glasses. The only major differences is that over counter reading glasses aren't customized to wear's eyes. They are made already for sell. But it won't hurt your eyes only if you choose the right pair.
The way to wear contact lenses is almost the same whether your eyes are big or small. Just follow the steps, and you may find it only a quite easy task. Firstly, wash your hands with soap and dry your hands with a towel or an air dryer. Secondly, remove one contact from its case. Unless the prescription is the same for both, remember to check whether itâ€™s for your right or left eye. Thirdly, place the contact on the index finger, use the index finger of your opposite hand to pull your upper eyelid upward and use the middle finger of your dominant hand to pull your lower eyelid downward. Fourthly, move the contact towards your eye calmly and steadily and gently place the contact on your eye. At last, blink slowly so as to not dislodge the contact. As you become more experienced, you can finish this in only 1 to 2 minutes.
