What you should eat to prevent eye diseases, Dry Eyes, AMD, Diabetic Retinopathy.


Eat Right to Prevent Eye Diseases- Dry Eyes, AMD, Diabetic Retinopathy


There are many publications about diet and AMD - (Age related Macular Degeneration) .

However, there is a general lack of knowledge on nutrition and diet to prevent eye diseases,in particular dry eyes, AMD and diabetic retinopathy.  

Here is a general outline for diet on weekly basis.  

·         Eat your leafy greens… a handful a day keeps AMD away!
·         Eat cold water fish four times a week. Choose sustainable fish that is low in contaminants, like wild Alaskan salmon, mackerel (not king mackerel), rainbow trout or sardines.
·         Eat orange peppers (they are high in zeaxanthin), two peppers per week, cooked or raw.
·         Eat eggs, including the yolk. Eggs contain lutein which is highly absorbed by the body. Having four per week is ideal.
·         Avoid high glycemic index and high glycemic load foods like refined grains and sugars. These foods are linked to diabetes and AMD.
This is a summary from studies and publications from Dr. Barbara Pelletier is an optomestrist and author of Eyefoods: A Food Plan for Healthy Eyes

New Research- Blepharitis Associated with Chronic Diseases, Anxiety, Depression, Heart Diseases.




Blepharitis Associated with Chronic Diseases

Blepharitis More Likely to Have Certain Inflammatory Diseases, Psychological Issues, Cardiovascular Diseases and More

According to recent research, several eye and systemic problems are more common among people with chronic blepharitis, but the reasons aren't always clear.
Researchers in Israel examined records of 16,706 people diagnosed with blepharitis in the Central District of Clalit Health Services during 2000-2009, plus an equal number of randomly selected age- and gender-matched people for the control group.
Ashkenazi Jews, people who were poorer and people who lived in urban centers were more likely to develop blepharitis than the rest of the population.
Also associated with blepharitis was the presence of certain inflammatory diseases (such as gastritis and asthma), psychological problems (such as anxiety and depression), hypothyroidism, cardiovascular diseases and certain eye conditions (chalazion and pterygium- surfer's eye)
Most associated with blepharitis were chalazia, rosacea, pterygia, ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, anxiety and gastritis.

A study report appeared in the June 2011 issue of the journal Ophthalmology.

We typically remember to shield our skin from the sun's ultraviolet rays, but shielding our eyes is just as important. When purchasing sunglasses, look for ones that block out 99 to 100 percent of both UV-A and UV-B radiation.
Image result for photo, resting eyesRest your eyes

If you spend a lot of time at the computer, it's important to rest your eyes to prevent eye strain. Try the 20-20-20 rule: Every 20 minutes, look away about 20 feet in front of you for 20 seconds.

To avoid the risk of infection, always wash your hands thoroughly before putting in or taking out your contact lenses. Make sure to disinfect contact lenses as instructed and replace them as directed.

You probably haven't thought about cigarette smoke and how it affects eye health. But smoking is as bad for your eyes as it is for the rest of your body. Research has linked smoking to an increased risk of developing age-related macular degeneration, cataracts and optic nerve damage, all of which can lead to blindness.

Being overweight or obese increases your risk of developing diabetes and other systemic conditions, which can lead to vision loss, such as diabetic eye disease or glaucoma.

New research Linking Sjogren's Disease to Hepatitis Delta Virus


Sjogrens Disease and Delta Hepatitis Virus

It has been long suspected that many autoimmune diseases are associated with a bout of viral infections.

New research from National Institute of Health indicate the virus Hepatitis delta Virus maybe associated with Primary Sjogren's Disease.   Of the 2 categories, Primary Sjogren's have more severe symptoms, and they do not have another rheumatic disease associated with it.

The salivary glands of Sjogren's patients were examined for viral vectors, changes in salivary flow, development of auto-antibodies compare to normal salivary glands.  This virus also demonstrated its ability to reduce saliva flow, increased lymphocyte infiltrates and development of auto-antibodies in mice.

Conclusion

Identification of HDV in Sjögren’s syndrome patients and induction of a Sjögren’s syndrome-like disease in vivo further support a viral-mediated etiopathology in Sjögren’s syndrome

This study was presented at
How Can TheraLife Help?
TheralIfe Eye Autoimmune is a proprietary formula specifically designed to relief dry eye symptoms, control flares, and support healthy tear secretions from inside out. 

We highly recommend hot compress for Sjogren's.  96% of Sjogren's people have meibomian gland dysfunction- clogged meibomian oil glands which produces lubricants to thicken tears.

The All Natural Treatment for Recurring Iritis- TheraLife Eye


Iritis is a common diagnosis that literally means "inflammation of the iris," the colored part of the eye. Anterior uveitis is a more technical term for iritis. There are many possible causes, and sometimes the cause cannot be identified. Due to the complexity of the vision system, any suspected case of eye inflammation should be examined by an optometrist, ophthalmologist or medical doctor. Most of the time, iritis resolves in less than 6 weeks; however, iritis can reoccur. It can signal  acute or chronic underlying disease in the body, and therefore should be cared for by a qualified healthcare professional. Without proper treatment, iritis can lead to cataracts, glaucoma, an irregularly sized and sluggish pupil, calcium deposits in the cornea, central serous choroidopathy, or retinal swelling (cystoid macular edema).

Leading Cause of Blindness

Iritis is the most common form of uveitis, a condition involving one or more of the three structures that comprise the intricate uvea. The iris is the front part of the uvea, the middle layer is the ciliary body (fine muscles that focus the eye) and at the back of the uvea is the choiroid which holds the small blood vessels

How to manage and treat Ocular Rosacea

Rosacea Illustrated - Photo © A.D.A.M.



Ocular Rosacea

A diagnosis of ocular rosacea is most easily determined if the patient also presents with the dermatological signs associated with acne rosacea- spider veins on nose and cheeks, however, in 20% of  cases, ocular rosacea can occur without skin evidences. This makes the diagnosis more complicated. 
Ocular rosacea is highly probable in people who report persistent eye and lid redness, a gritty or foreign body sensation or frequent styes (chronic dry eyes). Slit lamp signs typically include thickened lid margins with telangiectasia, thick, turbid meibomian gland secretions and tear film debris- Meibomian Gland Dysfunction.  . Crusting and scales in the lashes are also quite common. In severe cases, individuals can develop corneal erosions, infiltrates and ulcers, and even suffer vision loss due to substantial scarring and neovascularization.
Early diagnosis and aggressive management is important for maintaining ocular health and preventing vision loss. Management can range from warm compresses, lid scrubs and lubrication in mild cases, to pulsed ophthalmic corticosteroids, topical azithromycin (off-label) and oral tetracyclines (i.e. doxycycline and minocycline) in moderate to severe cases. Tetracyclines are typically dosed well below therapeutic concentrations, since the goal is to utilize its anti-inflammatory properties and not necessarily its antibiotic traits. Long-term maintenance with topical ophthalmic cyclosporin has also shown to be effective and prescribing lid scrubs containing tea tree oil may also help, as there appears to be a link between ocular rosacea and a bacterium (Bacillus oleronius) commonly found on Demodex mites. Regardless of the treatment, patients must understand that rosacea is a chronic condition and long-term therapy is required to maintain control and slow progression.

Symptoms of Rosacea.  

Individuals with ocular rosacea may not realize that they have dermatological (skin) disease (or vice versa) because signs and symptoms can be subtle. If your have  experienced them for a long time, you may not even realize it’s abnormal. Family history of dermatological problems, or if they experience facial flushing, especially when embarrassed or after eating spicy foods, drinking alcohol or sun exposure. Look for redness, bumps or small blood vessels on the cheeks, nose and forehead. A diagnosis of rosacea is not to be taken lightly — more than 90% of sufferers report lowered self-esteem, and 2/5 of patients say the condition has caused them to avoid public contact.4 A referral to a dermatologist can be very helpful.

Do eye drops really relief chronic dry eyes?


A walk down any pharmacy “eye aisle” with a complaint of dryness can be a little overwhelming.  There are many different options, and their differences speak to the diversity of reasons one may be experiencing ‘dry eye’ in the first place.  Consequently, some seem more “effective” than others.
The basic story of dry eye syndrome is in the name, though its medical term – keratitis sicca – won’t tip you off in the same way.  When the surface of the eye lacks moisture and lubrication due to a shortage of tears, we experience it as dryness and irritation, sometimes accompanied by redness and itching.  Ironically, watery eyes, triggered by an overproduction of the watery part of your tears to protect the eye, can also be a symptom of dry eye.  Finding the best remedy depends on unlocking the reasons and conditions of one’s own dry eye – the underlying causes.   
     
What’s Causing Dry Eye? :
Let’s start with that life nourishing fluid - our tears.  In addition to embarrassing us in sappy movies and connecting us to the well of human empathy, tears also clean and moisturize our eyes while providing them with enzymes that neutralize their indwelling microorganisms.  While generally most dry eye is a factor of either the lacrimal gland under producing tears or the meibomian gland reducing[L1]  oil output ( or clogging)  which then leads to over-evaporation of tears, what loosens or tightens the faucet, so to speak, varies greatly.  It can be a result of menopause,LASIK surgery,  a[L2]  side effect of medications, or a product of living in a dry, dusty, polluted, or windy city, such as Las Vegas or Tucson.  It can be an alarming indicator of Sjogren’s Syndrome lupus[L3] , rheumatoid arthritis, or ocular rosacea if occurring alongside other issues.  As if that wasn’t daunting enough diagnostically, dry eye is also linked to long hours at the computer, extended contact lens wear, smoking, and seasonal allergies.  It could be a combination of things, as well.  If you find yourself in a rare spell of dry eye, some over the counter drops may be just what the doctor ordered; however, if it is a chronic issue, it may require some deeper investigation, or lifestyle changes, such as installing an air filter or taking more breaks from the electronic devices. 

Much Ado about Drops:
“Artificial tears,” which are the most common eye drops, come in two varieties – with and without preservatives.  If you are struggling with a more severe case of dry eye and using them multiple times a day, it is recommended that you use those with fewer additives.  Some artificial tears will also include electrolytes to help balance the tear composition for the surface of the eye, and your ophthalmologist or optometrist may prescribe eye drops which tackle inflammation.  Do be aware, when contemplating your options, that many eye drops that focus their pitch on “reducing redness” are not as helpful in providing moisture.  Though they may be a good solution if you have a big meeting to appear presentable for, your eyes can acquire a tolerance to the eye-whitening vasoconstrictors in these red-eye fixes which can lead to more redness in the long term.  If you wear contact lenses, make sure to remove them before using the eye drops and wait 15-20 minutes before putting them on again.  

In general, eye drops make your eyes drier by washing away the natural lubricants your eyes produce. 

Check with your Ophthalmologist:
If dry eye is a troubling reoccurrence, make the time to discuss possible causes with your eye doctors[L4] .  He or she may recommend nutritional supplements such as omega-3 fatty acids Theralife Eye oral capsules, and more..  The two of you can also plan a long term strategy that identifies and addresses your unique factors.

Cataract Surgery and Dry Eye Syndrome


With cataracts affecting nearly 22 million Americans, it's not surprising that most of us know people who have had cataract surgery. We may even be contemplating cataract surgery for ourselves. Since cataracts are almost never a medical emergency, you should feel entirely comfortable taking the time to learn more about cataracts and explore all your options. 

What is a Cataract? 

A cataract is simply a spot on the lens of the eye that you cannot readily see through. These spots are made up of clumps of normal eye protein and generally form slowly over time. Although most cataracts are related to aging, it is also possible for cataracts to form as the result of surgery or other trauma to the eye. Steroid use and other health problems such as diabetes are also linked to cataracts. Congenital cataracts can form in babies or children, and radiation exposure can also result in cataracts. Still, for most people, cataracts are age-related and .

What is involved in Cataract surgery 

During cataract surgery, your own lens is removed and an artificial lens is replaced. The procedure is usually done under mild sedation and takes about an hour.  Most people see a remarkable improvement in their vision right after cataract surgery.  

Why do I have dry eyes after Cataract surgery?

In order to get the old lens out and the replacement lens in.  The doctor puts a tiny hole in your cornea to facilitate this process.  The hole does create an uneven surface on your cornea which creates friction when you blink.  This friction creates inflammation which shuts down your tear secretion glands, and thus dry eyes.

TheraLife Eye can help

Use TheraLife Eye for both pre-operative and post operative care.

The benefits of TheraLife Eye-

  1. Effectively relief dry eyes without the use of eye drops and restore cornea to the best health it can be before surgery.
  2. Post-operatively prevent dry eyes and maintain cornea health through accelerated healing, reduce inflammation, and continue secretion of balanced sustainable tear.
  3. Avoid the use of steroids and side effects.

Testimonial from our customer

Cataract Induced Chronic Dry Eyes- Relief by TheraLife Eye
After cataract surgery in 2007.  I started having problems with dry eyes.  My doctor prescribed several different types of eye drops, but none were effective.  He then put plugs in my tear ducts, and they became infected and must be removed.  He then suggested that I have my tear ducts cauterized- I did not feel comfortable about this permanent procedure.
I then thought about going on the internet and checking what else is available for dry eyes.  Amazon had information on TheraLife Eye that I found the most interesting. I place an order.  Needless to say, I saw a marked improvement and now I am on a maintenance dose of one capsule at breakfast and one at dinner.  2 capsules per day.  I wouldn’t be without TheraLife Eye.
