LASIK May Ruin Your Sight As You Age

December 14, 2006 | 18,965 views

 

A new study has raised concerns regarding the long-term effects of laser eye surgery. New research indicates that laser surgery for short-sightedness can cause haze, glare and blurred vision as people reach their senior years.

Laser surgery for short-sightedness flattens the central cornea, which provides better eyesight, but can seriously affect the movement of corneal cells.

Normally, these cells start on the outsides of the eye and migrate toward the center. When they meet, they create pigment, which scatters light and can cause haze and blur. This occurs just below the pupil, in an area called the Hudson-Stahli Line.

The laser surgery causes these cells to move at a different rate down the flattened cornea. They meet in front of the pupil, intensifying the haze.

At present, the problem cannot be fixed.

 

 

 

Dr. Mercola's Comments:

As the popularity and convenience of LASIK surgery has grown, so have the problems associated with such procedures that can permanently damage your eyesight.

The bottom line is that laser eye surgery (LASIK) does absolutely nothing to treat the cause of your vision loss, and is virtually guaranteed to worsen your vision over time.

In fact, LASIK can lead to irreversible eye damage, side effects such as "halos," "starbursts," glare around lights, double vision, or "ghost images," and severe dry eye syndrome, which can cause permanently reduced vision.

Lasers can do some pretty amazing things, just don't let ANYBODY use them on your eyes. You do, however, have a better, safer option to improve your vision without surgery: Learn the important visual habits that can restore your eyesight, covered in the Secrets of Regaining Your Vision Naturally Program, which you can learn about below.

On Vital Votes, a registered nurse from Cabool, Missouri comments:

"When laser eye surgery first come out I was just out of nursing school.  I did look into it.  However, I found that no one knew what would happen 10 or more years after surgery.  I decided to wait and see what would happen.  I meet a few people who were blinded because of incompetent practitioners.

"I still have yet to meet somebody who had laser surgery 20 years ago. The eye doctors are advertising LASIK, almost as much as the pharmaceutical companies are advertising their products. When are people going to wake up and say enough experimenting on us without our permission."

The Secrets of Regaining Your Vision ... Naturally

Are you leading a healthy lifestyle and disappointed that you need to wear glasses or contacts? Just doesn't seem fair or right that you body is not able to correct this problem if you give it the right tools.

Well that was my exact dilemma several years ago. Starting in my mid-40s I had to strain to see the fine print. And reading a menu in a dimly-lit restaurant? Well, most of the time it was a major struggle, if I was able to do it at all without the aid of reading glasses.

Soon I had to resort to using reading glasses on a regular basis. Talk about feeling middle-aged and embarrassed -- this should not happen to someone following the Total Health Program principles for which people were starting to know of me!

And even worse, as a big believer in natural methods of healing, I knew that glasses were nothing but a crutch to help me see -- not a permanent cure for the problem (though I had no idea what that permanent cure was).

When my commitment to a healthy lifestyle failed to keep my eyesight from going downhill, I started what would become a 5-year search to discover how to correct my vision naturally ... without glasses, contact lenses or dangerous LASIK surgery

Along the way, I achieved some temporary minor improvement with rubbing essential oils around my eyes, but nothing else seemed to help.

Fast forward to 2005, when I went on a Caribbean cruise as part of a Mercola.com promotion ...

One of my traveling companions was a man who was in his early 70s -- Dr. Larry Clapp. Amazingly, Larry was the only person at our dinner table who didn't need glasses to see the menu.

Of course, I envied his ability to read a menu without reading glasses, and I just had to know his secret.

You can imagine my surprise when he whispered two words in my ear.

READ WHAT OTHERS HAVE TO SAY!

Before I tell you what I discovered that day, let me explain something.

I'm sharing this with you now because ...

  • I know you're committed and open to the principles of natural health and healing ...

  • This science-based method worked for me ... and it has ALSO already worked for tens of thousands of other people with vision problems

  • And mostly because I am convinced that natural vision improvement is possible for you, too.

So here's what happened ...

How an 86-Year Old "Underground" Secret Restored My Vision Naturally ... Even After the Age of 50

I learned a powerful secret on that cruise.

Remarkably, twenty years after Dr. Clapp was shown these simple but powerful techniques of natural vision correction, he was still seeing with perfect clarity. As were all the others he'd shared the training with ...

Those two words that Larry Clapp shared with me that day were these: Bates Method.

The practically-secret natural vision program of pioneering medical doctor and ophthalmologist Dr. William Bates, who died back in 1931.

You see, Dr. Bates was far ahead of his time. He was a maverick physician who dedicated his life to learning why people develop problems with their eyesight ... problems like nearsightedness, farsightedness, presbyopia and astigmatism.

He developed a combination of simple yet powerful methods of vision re-training that can allow you to see better naturally ... with just a few minutes a day of EASY practice.

Just like I did.

Of course, I was somewhat skeptical at first. But because Dr. Clapp was someone I trusted, someone with integrity -- and because the fundamental scientific tenets of the Bates Method made perfect sense when I heard them -- I knew I had to learn more.

To discover the techniques and methods that helped me restore my own vision, I flew out to California to train with a leading instructor in this unique method. It cost me thousands of dollars (YOU don't have to worry about that, as you will see) but it was more than worth the investment of my time and money to regain my vision without the embarrassing use of glasses or contacts.

And, sure enough -- it worked. Once I learned these simple vision habits and principles, I was able to avoid using my reading glasses ... and I could stop being embarrassed.

Introducing the Secrets of Regaining Your Vision Naturally Audio Program

I was so impressed by my own results and the research my team and I did on the history and success of the Bates Method that I decided to offer this powerful natural vision improvement training to Mercola.com readers.

Awhile back, I held a Teleclinic with a leading Bates Method instructor, which was extremely well-received by thousands of participants. And an introductory natural eyesight Teleclinic had the phone lines so jammed with callers that 16,000 people tried to get the 200 available spaces.

Since then, many people have practically begged me for an encore Teleclinic. But I decided to go one step further, which is really great news for you.

I was fortunate to find an exceptional Certified Natural Vision Teacher -- Greg Marsh.

And Greg, whose Bates Method approach is interwoven with his own holistic-centered background, was generous enough to produce and professionally record a comprehensive 6-CD set (6 MP3 file set also available) on natural eyesight training called the Secrets of Regaining Your Vision Naturally.

With this complete holistic program, you'll discover the safe and proven approach to permanently eliminating not only your eyesight problems, but also the high cost and hassles associated with them.

With the Secrets of Regaining Your Vision Naturally, you can ...

  • Discover how to throw away your glasses for good ...

  • Get rid of your messy and irritating contact lenses ...

  • Avoid the risks and cost of LASIK eye surgery ...

  • Improve your vision in just minutes a day ...

  • Free yourself from eyestrain and neck strain ...

  • Save thousands of dollars on your lifetime vision care costs ...

Is Natural Vision Training For You?

You may be wondering if this natural eyesight improvement program is right for you, so let's find out ...

See & Hear the Amazing Benefits of the Secrets of Regaining Your Vision Naturally Program Firsthand from Your Trainer, Greg Marsh
Greg Marsh

Secrets of Regaining Your Vision Naturally program is perfect for you if ...

  • You're nearsighted or farsighted and use glasses or contact lenses ...

  • You've been told you have astigmatism ...

  • You have presbyopia or "aging eyesight" ... and use reading glasses to see close up ...

  • You're just starting to notice problems with your eyesight ... your vision isn't as clear as it used to be and you're concerned that it may be worsening ...

  • You're considering LASIK eye surgery but have concerns or fears about the risks ...

  • You're tired of dealing with the hassles and expense of glasses or contact lenses ...

  • You suffer from eyestrain, muscle tension headaches or tight muscles in the neck and upper back from reading, watching TV or using your computer ...

  • You've already had LASIK but your vision is starting to worsen again ...

But before going any further, I should explain a few things:

Natural Vision Improvement Is Not a Quick Fix

It does take some time to experience the improvement that comes with addressing the real problems that cause blurry vision.

  • If you're looking for instant results, this program is not for you (although results in a few days or weeks are not uncommon) ...

  • If your eyesight is very poor, you can't expect to throw away your glasses in just a few weeks (although you may notice significant improvement) ...

  • Natural vision improvement will take some commitment, practice, patience and motivation. It's just like conditioning any other part of your body. The more conditioning and re-training your visual system needs, the longer it will take. But if you're willing to integrate correct vision methods into your life -- consistently -- the pay-off can be huge ...

  • Our live teleclinic course was 21 hours and the feedback we received was that it was too long -- too much extraneous information. So we condensed the training down by 2/3 and now you can learn everything you will need in only 7 hours.

And after you first begin to notice improvement in your eyesight, you'll realize that you have discovered the best way to take control of your own vision for the rest of your life.

Natural Vision Improvement

Natural vision improvement can boost your response to other holistic care. The neck, head & shoulders cannot release chronic muscle tension until vision normalizes, because the same strained vision habits that tighten your eye muscles also tighten these muscles.

So, if you've read this far, you're probably the kind of person that takes responsibility for your health and you're willing to take action. Since you're exactly the kind of person this program is for, you're on your way to discovering ...

Your Natural Solution to Common Vision Problems

According to Dr. Bates' teachings, common vision problems are not irreversible -- and not the result of genetics. He believed that blurred vision is functional rather than structural; that is, it results from chronic tension in some or all of your six extrinsic eye muscles.

The Secrets of Regaining Your Vision Naturally program addresses the retraining of these external muscles of the eye to correct four common types of vision problems:

  • Nearsightedness or myopia. If you are nearsighted, near objects are clear but far objects are not. According to Bates Method principles, your eyeball has become elongated due to chronically tense external oblique muscles in your eye. The only way to permanently reverse this condition and regain normal vision is to learn to release this chronic tension or strain.

  • Farsightedness or hyperopia. If you are farsighted, your eyeball has shortened and cannot focus clearly on near objects. Dr. Bates demonstrated that this is due to chronic tension in the four external recti muscles of the eye. Vision retraining gently coaxes these muscles to let go of their chronic strain, allowing the eyeball to return to its normal round shape, which is necessary for clear vision.

  • Astigmatism. In this condition, your eyeball becomes oval-shaped or lopsided due to a combination of chronically tense eye muscles. Dr. Bates told us: "All persons who have astigmatism have eyestrain. When the eyestrain is relieved, the astigmatism disappears."

  • Presbyopia. This condition, which literally means "old eyes", is a type of farsightedness that is typically observed in those over the age of 40. Conventional theory maintains that this condition is the irreversible result of the lens becoming hard and inflexible as the result of aging. However, Dr. Bates said that the cause of presbyopia is the same as other eyesight problems -- tense and strained eye muscles that undermine close vision.

You may be wondering why you've always been led to believe that your vision problems are just something "you need to live with" and that glasses, contacts or surgery are your only options ...

The Real Reason Why Natural Vision Improvement Methods Aren't Widely Taught

Sadly, it always comes back to the money. That's the main reason why you may have never heard about natural vision improvement.

Because, let's face it -- where's the real money in the vision care industry?

I'm sure you know: glasses, contact lenses and laser eye surgery. That's where the big money is. No doubt about it.

In fact, according to the Vision Council of America, the vision care industry racked up a whopping $25.7 billion dollars in revenue during the 12-month period ending in March 2005.

Do you think there's that kind of money in natural vision therapy? Not likely.

Now, I don't really believe that traditional eye doctors intellectually understand that natural eyesight training works -- and are intentionally choosing the more lucrative path.

No. There's another issue in addition to the money.

The truth is that the entire eye care profession exists by adhering to the traditional model of vision correction, the only approach they've been taught.

STOP Doing this for GOOD!

Natural Vision Restoration

Now -- ripped from the headlines -- another reason to avoid contact lenses: the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is currently monitoring a difficult-to-treat fungal infection of the eye (called fusarium) that appears to be escalating among contact lens wearers. This infection is difficult to diagnose, since most eye infections are bacterial rather than fungal. This fungal infection, if left undiagnosed and untreated, can lead to serious vision problems, even blindness. Fortunately, you can get rid of your contact lenses with the 6-CD (6 MP3 file set also available) "Secrets of Regaining Your Vision Naturally" training

While the plus-side of the 6-MP3 set is that you pay no shipping/handling charges and will be able to download your training 6 training MP3s instantly, the down-side is that you cannot upgrade for $35 more to get the two print books described below.

Because of this, most eye doctors are blinded to alternatives. Other systems of treatment, no matter how valid, are quickly dismissed out of hand. (Doesn't this sound a lot like the rest of conventional medicine?)

Speaking of alternatives, before we discuss the financial investment in this 6-CD set (6 MP3 file set also available) Secrets of Regaining Your Vision Naturally (which is extremely reasonable), I'd like you to keep in mind all of your alternatives.

Let's compare your options:

Eyeglasses & Contacts Will Cost You a Bundle Over the Years ... and Lead to Further Eyestrain & Poor Vision

First, eyeglasses, contact lenses and other eye care services cost hundreds of dollars -- often on a yearly basis! And, many people have little or no insurance for vision correction, which means more money out-of-pocket.

And unfortunately, because they serve as only a "crutch" or "band-aid fix", they do absolutely nothing to improve your eyesight.

Worse yet, there's strong medical evidence that glasses and contacts actually make your eyes worse! With them, your vision is likely to continue to deteriorate, making it necessary for you to return for stronger and stronger prescriptions.

Actually, if you think about it, it makes perfect sense.

  • Incorrect vision habits create a mental and physical strain that manifests as abnormally tight external eye muscles.

  • Blurred vision is a signal of mind and body imbalance warning you that you need to regain your normal and relaxed state of seeing.

  • By resorting to strong corrective lenses like prescription glasses or contacts, you are communicating to your mind and body that your vision has returned to normal -- but the mental and physical strain are still present.

  • Your confused body (in a form of biofeedback) keeps telling you that something is wrong by increasing the tension in your eye muscles to blur your vision even more. Unfortunately, most people do not heed this message from their body.

So, if you wear contact lenses or glasses, you not only have to contend with the incorrect vision habits which initially led to your visual problems, you also must deal with the fact that your strong corrective lenses actually interfere with your ability to improve your vision.

Natural vision training assists you to transition yourself from glasses by reducing your prescription and removing your glasses or contacts when they are not essential for safety. You will also discover how to work with a supportive eye doctor as you reduce your reliance on corrective lenses.

The six external eye muscles are designed to keep your eyeball in constant motion. However, common poor vision habits such as staring (not moving the eyes), coupled with the maladaptive effect of corrective lenses, all contribute to poor eyesight.

According to Dr. Bates, all glasses contract your field of vision. The only way to see with perfect clarity is to look through the center of the lenses. Unfortunately, this contributes to your inability to move your eyes freely, contributing to rigid and strained eye position.

Contact lenses are basically a foreign object in the eyes. In addition to their interference with vision improvement, they possess their own risks and problems, including:

  • Inconvenient to use
  • Difficult to keep clean and disinfected
  • Can lead to irritation and abrasion of the cornea
  • May deprive the cornea of necessary oxygen
  • Dry out the eyes
  • May cause eye and eyelid infection
  • Poor & uncomfortable fit
  • Subject to irritation from dust, pollutants and allergens
  • Interfere with normal blinking and tearing
  • Distort the shape of your cornea
  • Serious infections are possible, which may result in corneal ulceration, scar tissue, vision loss, even the need for corneal transplant

If some of these side effects sound bad, LASIK is even worse ...

The Truth about LASIK They Don't Want You to Know

I know many of you have considered LASIK surgery. It seems like the desire for a "quick fix" is part of human nature. However, the reality is that there are a number of issues to consider before undergoing an invasive surgical procedure such as LASIK -- or other eye surgeries such as PRK.

You may be rightfully concerned about the cost. The average cost for this invasive surgery is about $1,500 to $2,000 per eye. And most insurance companies do not cover the cost of LASIK.

Even more worrisome is the risk of complications and side effects from botched or problematic LASIK surgery, many of which have been downplayed to the general public.

The FDA's website on LASIK surgery advises those contemplating the procedure to carefully weigh these risks:

  • Surgical errors or device malfunction that may lead to irreversible eye damage.

  • You may lose even more vision as a result of LASIK (and this is not as uncommon as you might think).

  • Surgical complications such as inflammation or infection may cause irreversible blindness.

  • You may develop debilitating visual symptoms, particularly in low light or night-time conditions, such as "halos" or "starbursts", glare around lights and/or double vision or "ghost images". (Sometimes these side effects never go away ... )

  • Only a certain percentage of patients achieve 20/20 vision without glasses or contacts -- you may be under-treated or over-treated.

  • Severe dry eye syndrome may occur, which not only causes discomfort, but can cause permanently reduced vision.

  • Your results may not be as good if you have large refractive errors of any type.

  • If you are farsighted, your results may diminish as you grow older.

  • Since long-term data is not available, the long-term safety and effectiveness of LASIK is unknown.

And, as the FDA says: "there are never any guarantees in medicine".

See What Others Have to Say!
Natural Vision Improvement

LASIK or PRK surgery is expensive and risky, and the long-term effects are unknown. You can avoid LASIK eye surgery with natural vision improvement.

SEE WHAT OTHERS HAVE TO SAY!

You may wonder how these visual distortions such as glare, ghosting, halos, starbursts, double vision and loss of low-light vision may occur. There is a wide variety in equipment (and surgical skill) used to perform LASIK and similar procedures. Eye surgeons have encountered many complications of LASIK surgery. These are just a few:

  • If the LASIK flap is not cut precisely, it may not adhere correctly to the eye's surface. Or, the flap might be cut too thinly or thickly, or wrinkle after being placed back on the eye's surface. These flap complications can result in an irregularly shaped eye surface (known as irregular astigmatism) -- this can lead to permanent visual distortions.

  • When a flap is cut too deeply or too much corneal tissue is removed during LASIK, you may develop a condition called keratectasia, which causes bulging of the weakened cornea. The vision distortions that result are unlikely to be correctable; rigid contact lenses may be required to maintain the cornea in its proper place.

  • Diffuse lamellar keratitis (DLK), nicknamed "Sands of the Sahara" for the gritty and irritating sensation it produces, can occur when dead cells "infiltrate" beneath the LASIK flap. The cornea then reacts to the presence of this foreign debris, causing inflammation, scarring, and potential permanent vision loss unless immediate treatment is received.

These days, it seems like LASIK clinics are popping up everywhere, making bold promises of 20/20 vision ... or your money back. I don't know about you, but getting a refund for a botched surgery isn't very comforting.

And you may not even be eligible for this type of eye surgery. You may be a poor candidate for LASIK:

  • If you have an autoimmune disease or other serious or chronic illness that might slow healing.
  • If you take steroids or other medications that might prevent healing.
  • If you have dry eyes.
  • If you have thin corneas.
  • If your vision hasn't been stable for at least one year prior to surgery.
  • If you have a history of herpes infection in your eye.
  • If you have scarring on your cornea.
  • If you have had an eye infection or injury in the last year.
  • If you're pregnant or nursing (hormones can cause temporary shifts in your vision).
  • If you have an occupation which is not conducive to undergoing eye surgery.

Of course, a major drawback of LASIK or PRK surgery is that it does absolutely nothing to address the cause of your vision problems.

And, of course, the same thing goes for farsightedness.

This certainly explains why improving your vision naturally takes longer -because it is addressing the real cause of your visual problems.

Eye "Exercises" are NOT the Solution

There are a number of programs out there purporting to offer natural vision correction through "eye exercises".

Unfortunately, strengthening, toning and conditioning your six eye muscles "to keep them in perfect working order" are not the right answer.

Why is that?

It's simple ... your eye muscles are already too strained, tight and contracted. They certainly don't need more "exercise".

Children explore their world in a natural state of constant body, head & eye motion. Relearning to see like children, with relaxed & unstrained vision habits, is crucial to natural vision improvement.

Here is a general tenet of the Bates Method: effort and willpower don't work.

Eye "exercises" will lead you further down the path of strain -- the exact opposite of the direction you need to go to achieve true vision improvement.

What your eyes really need is to re-learn how to let go, to relax ... to reclaim the perfect unstrained vision you had as a young child.

Natural Vision Improvement Addresses the Cause of Your Vision Issues

Greg Marsh, your natural vision teacher on the audio program, won't waste your time with a bunch of fluff. With a combination of mental and visual tools, he'll take you right into the subtle principles of improving your eyesight. As you listen, you'll participate actively in exploring and discovering:

  • Where your strain is, what it feels like, and how to let it go ...

  • The 3 principles of natural vision -- movement, centralization and relaxation ...

  • Why the eye must move to see ...

  • How your emotions and personality may be involved in your vision ...

  • The 3 habits of natural vision -- sketching or shifting, breathing and blinking ...

  • What children instinctively know about vision that you don't ...

  • How to work with your eye doctor to achieve your goals ...

  • Why willpower and effort don't work when it comes to vision improvement ...

  • How to best handle computers and close-up work ...

  • The necessity of letting go of tight muscles for total body-mind health ...

Your seven full hours of material mixes basic easy-to-understand theory with activities, examples, and real-life case studies.

Additionally, the 15 guided visualizations you can come back to again and again will help you:

  • Put your new vision principles into real-world action ...

  • Continue to take your eyesight improvement to deeper levels ...

  • Reactivate and reinvigorate your ease and trust in your own sight ...

Depending upon your own personal learning style, you can listen to a few tracks a day, or quickly complete the entire program. And of course, you will have all of the 6 CDs (6 MP3 file set also available) to refer to or review at any time.

A One-Time Affordable Investment ... Not a Lifetime of Continuous Vision Care Costs

I wish everyone could have access to the methods of natural vision improvement at no charge ...

Unfortunately, the costs of producing a thorough professional-quality program preclude the ability to just give it away.

But we've made it as affordable as possible.

To receive the Secrets of Regaining Your Vision Naturally 6-CD program (6 MP3 file set also available) that addresses and helps you remove the underlying causes of your vision impairment, there is a one-time investment of just $149. (Or just $35 additional if you choose the upgrade that includes two supplemental print books -- read more below.)

If that seems like a lot at first glance, remember it is a very small fraction of what you would pay over your lifetime for glasses, contacts, office visits, even surgery.

For glasses, the average annual cost (including exam, required follow-up visits, the costs of the glasses) can range from $208 to $509! For contacts it can range from $222 to $262! In five years, you can pay $1000 to over $2000 for glasses and $1100 to $1300 for contacts!

As you can see, the one-time investment of just $149 in this widely proven (and guaranteed or your money back -- read below!) program makes remarkable sense!

As you've seen, these vision "crutches" do nothing to better your eyesight. On the contrary, they are actually detrimental to true vision improvement.

And while glasses, contacts and especially LASIK come with risks attached, there is absolutely no risk to natural vision training.

That's why I believe that the Secrets of Regaining Your Vision Naturally is your best and most reasonable option for restoring your original clear eyesight.

But to make it even more affordable, I've included ...

The following two print books are not essential, but if you are the type who uses print reference materials often such as dictionaries, thesauruses, and encyclopedias, for just $35 extra with the 6-CDs (not available with MP3s) you will definitely want to upgrade your order!

You will get:

UPGRADE BOOK #1: Relearning to See: Improve Your Eyesight -- Naturally!

If you choose to upgrade your order, you will receive this highly-detailed 521-page softbound book that is considered the "modern bible" of natural vision correction. This manual by Bates Method master instructor Thomas Quackenbush will be mailed to your home.

Many people have said they would have paid the price of the 6-CD (or MP3) course for this manual alone ... With useful and practical step-by-step instructions on how to successfully implement your vision program, it really is that good. But when you combine it with the audio training you will receive, the bonus book described above, and the other upgrade book below, you've got an absolutely amazing value.

UPGRADE BOOK # 2: Better Eyesight: The Complete Magazines of William H. Bates

With your upgrade order you'll also receive this weighty 708-page print manual containing all the magazine articles published by the physician who developed the entire Bates Method program. This "lost" material was previously unavailable to nearly anyone but Bates Method instructors. Editor Thomas Quackenbush spent 16 years tracking down all these articles, and even more long months indexing, scanning and compiling all these important vision secrets uncovered by Dr. Bates.

These two books are a true "steal" for just $30 more if you choose to upgrade your order!
