Following on from the very successful TV Show trials on the Richard & Judy Show, shown in the video above, a revolutionary new non-surgical treatment for cataracts has been growing in popularity globally. The manufacturers, Ethos Schweiz LLC, now ask the question ‘Could invasive cataract surgery soon be a thing of the past?’. Their leading brand of cataracts eye drops are called Ethos Endymion “Bright Eyes drops for cataracts“. They were specially developed as a new cataracts treatment using N-Acetyl-Carnosine (or just NAC for short) which is a very special derivative of tly occurring neuro-protective dipeptide ‘L-Carnosine’ which is a great anti-glycating agent as well as being a super antioxidant that quenches free radicals. When NAC eye drops are administered to the eyes, they penetrate through the cornea into the aqueous humour below and go to work directly; protecting the lipid tissues of the eye against damage from light whilst also helping to reduce damage from free radicals and the harmful effects of glycosylation which are commonly associated with many different degenerative eye diseases.
There are many different eye diseases, conditions and disorders that can affect your eyesight, cause visual impairment and, ultimately, can lead to a complete loss of vision. Not all eye diseases and conditions have noticeable symptoms; this is why it is so imperative to have regular eye examinations and checkups as early detection often makes treatment far easier and more effective. Common symptoms of having an eyes disease include; seeing flashes of light, double or blurred vision, inflammation of the eye, excess fluid coming from the eye and unusual pain in the eye. If you experience any of these conditions then immediate medical attention should be sought...Read More
Glaucoma is the second commonest cause of blindness; cataracts being the first. Glaucoma has been nicknamed 'The sneak-thief of sight' as it is often a slow and gradual progression that leads to optic nerve damage and can therefore often go undetected until it is too late and damage has already been caused. This is why it is so important to have regular eye examinations and checkups by your opthamologist or eye specialist. Gradually, over time, glaucoma will lead to the loss of ganglion cells in the retina of the eye which project the images we see to the brain. These cells convert the images that we see into very small electrical impulses which the brain then translates into what we perceive as our sight. When these cells become...Read More
The macula is a highly pigmented, oval-shaped, yellow coloured spot near to the centre of the retina of the eye and is approximately 5mm in diameter. Its yellow colour comes from its high concentrations of zeaxanthin and lutein which are yellow xanthophyll carotenoids. Because of this yellow colour it absorbs excess blue and ultraviolet light which acts as an effective sunblock, much the same as sunglasses, to protect this part of the retina from damage. As we age, a lack of these two essential carotenoids which we usually obtain through our diet causes the macular pigment density to lessen which, in turn, reduces it effectiveness as a sunblock and then the macular can become damaged. Daily supplementation with zeaxanthin and lutein will help to restore the macular pigment density and ensure that the macular is effectively...Read More
