Don’t say dietary supplements don’t work
03-08-2018 by Bill Sardi
I’m of cataract age (in my early 70s). (cataract = cloudy focusing lens)
I’ve got clear lenses, no glaucoma (elevated fluid pressure); no other eye conditions typical for my age.
My retina scans you can see below.
My central retinal thickness is 255-256 right and left eye micrometers, about normal.
It would be typical for a 70+ year old to have drusen (oxysterol aka cholesterol) deposits at the back of my eyes. The scan below shows zero drusen.
My optic nerve and blood vessels are healthy.
I have habitually worn UV-blue-blocking sun lenses when outdoors during the day since age 40.
I have been supplementing my diet with lutein since 1992 when lutein first became available as a dietary supplement.
I take resveratrol since 2004 when it was popularized as an anti-aging molecule.
I have taken IP6 rice bran, an iron chelator, since the mid 1990s.
My vision is 20/30 in both eyes and I needed a prescription for astigmatism (irregular curvature of the front cornea of the eyes).
