Vision

Vision can become a worry as we get older. Learn how to keep your vision sharp and clear no matter what your age on the NorthStar blog on vision support.

  1. Could this nutrient trio restore 95% of your lost vision?

    I thought my own eyes were going!

    There it was -- in the MAINSTREAM medical press-- a special report promising the latest and greatest in vision care.

    Medscape promised to give docs “evidence and ‘bottom line’guidancefor patients who ask whether they should take supplements to prevent eye disease.”

    It started out positively enough.

    According to the first report, some supplement formulas slowed progression of age-related macular degeneration, a devastating and permanent form of vision loss.

    Then I saw the “catch.”

    The next report in the link was the usual trash talk, but TIMES TEN – some idiot blabbing about how supplements not only DON’T work, but are also DANGEROUS.

    He even URGED docs to warn patients AGAINST taking them!

    Maybe he’d change his tune if he started going blind from his own case of AMD.

    Because that’s exactly what happened to a retired optician in England about a decade ago.

    The REAL key to saving your eyes and reversing AMD

    At 73 years old, Dr. Harry Marsland had lost all vision in both his eyes.

    His world had LITERALLY gone dark.

    Dry age-related macular degeneration had taken the sight from his left eye… and “wet” AMDhad rendered his right eye blind years earlier.

    Obviously, he had to stop driving. He was even about to learn Braille.

    But first, he tried a supplement containing lutein, zeaxanthin and meso-zeaxanthin.

    And whaddya know -- heregained 95% of the lost vision in his left eye!

    He could even get in the driver’s seat again.

    That was back in 2009…

    His story SHOULD have been celebrated… investigated… and replicated.

    Instead, after a couple of headlines, the good doctor faded into anonymity.

    And the brand-name supplement he used – MacuShield– is NOWHERE to be found ANYWHERE in the Americas.

    But just you wait…

    In a few years, Big Pharma will chemically replicate and alterone of those same compounds just enough to slap a patent and a high price tag on it… and debut it as some expensive new drug.

    It’ll cost MORE…work LESS… and have big RISKS.

    And THEN they’ll celebrate!

    That’s why they don’t want you learning about ANY of these proven natural options for vision loss.

    They’re even LYING about how they don’t work.

    Heck, they’re probably HOPING you go blind… so you can’t read what I’m about to tell you next.

    If you’re concerned about vision loss… if you have AMD or any other vision-robbing condition… use your eyesight while you still have it.

    Do your own homework. Study the SCIENCE -- not the fear-mongering of industry shills.

    And look for vision formulas with PROVEN eye-boosting superstars.

    The lutein, zeaxanthin, and meso-zeaxanthin that the British eye doc tried are all terrific, as are astaxanthin and hyaluronic acid.

  2. My Eyes Are Dry - Now What?

    dry my eyesWhen your eyes are dry every day feels like an annoyance.

    No, there’s nothing seriously wrong, but there’s certainly nothing right, either.

    On bad days, life can become an itchy, scratchy irritation one just has to get through.

    That’s no way to live life!

    Luckily, just because your eyes are dry doesn’t mean you have to live with it.

    Let’s take a closer look at dry eyes, and the natural ways you can manage them.

    More Than Just Dry

    While the primary symptom of dry eyes is obvious, it’s not the only symptom. If you’re experiencing any of these, it counts and there are steps you can take…

    • Eyes are dry, scratchy, and even painful
    • Feels like there’s something in your eyes
    • Redness
    • Mucus in or around your eyes
    • Increased and unexplained sensitivity to light
    • Tired eyes
    • Blurry vision

    Any or all of these can be caused when your tear glands simply don’t make enough tears to keep your eyes well-lubricated.

    And what’s changed? Why are your tear glands not working as efficiently as they once did?

    Any number of reasons could cause that shift. These are just a few of them:

    • Getting older
    • New medications
    • Environmental influences
    • Allergies

    If this sounds like you, keep reading, because there are ways you can counteract your eyes being dry.

    Easy Treatments When Your Eyes are Dry

    • Pay attention to your environment. Smoke, dust, even wind can affect your eyes. Do what you can to avoid smoke and dust. Consider a humidifier, to help keep the air from becoming too dry. When you’re outside, wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from blowing wind as much as from sun.
    • Get plenty of omega-3 fatty acids in your diet. They can help reduce the inflammation that can cause dry eyes. Load up on salmon, herring, walnuts, and other sources of these healthy fats. While you’re at it….
    • Avoid the unhealthy fats. Fat found in processed and fried foods are just bad for your overall health. Because they also interfere with the way your body processes the good fats that your eyes need, they can contribute to your eyes feeling dry.
    • Consider all-natural eye drops. When your eyes are dry, it could be tempting to reach for traditional eye drops, but resist that urge. Even if they feel good in the moment, traditional eye drops will only make your eyes drier. However, there are all-natural eye drops that can help relieve the dryness without adding preservatives and other chemicals you really don’t want in your eyes.
    • Avoid added and processed sugar. Eating more than eleven teaspoons of sugar a day is believed to cause dry eyes. Make sugary foods an occasional treat, not an everyday occurrence.
    • Don’t forget to blink. As impossible as this sounds, people really do blink less when they’re concentrating, especially on the computer. Make sure you blink – and blink completely – no matter how engrossing your work is.
    • Use a wet compress. When your eyes are dry, it’s important to keep them clean and clear of any minuscule particles that might have gathered around your eyes and in your lashes. It’s also important to rest your eyes. This step accomplishes both. Take a warm, wet washcloth, and apply it to your closed eyes for five minutes. Replace it as it cools, if you wish. By doing this, you will loosen and wipe away any debris, and give your eyes a five to ten minute rest every day.
    • Check your medications. Certain medications can cause dry eyes. If feeling like your eyes are dry coincided with a new prescription or a change in dose, speak to your doctor or pharmacist. It may be resolved that easily.

    The best news is that you probably don’t need to go see a doctor.

    If there are other concerning symptoms, if these symptoms don’t clear up in a few days, or if you’ll just feel better about it, then absolutely talk with your doctor.

    Otherwise, give these steps a try. You may discover that your eyes aren’t dry much longer!
