Information on diet, nutrition & self-help options
Since we consider most eye conditions to be a reflection of the health of the whole body, lifestyle choices and diet can play a major factor in getting and maintaining good vision. Below are some recommendations:
- Supplementation with research-proven nutrients and eyedrops that have been found to be helpful to protect vision.
- See our recommendations for healthy eyes for details.
- Eye exercises can help to bring energy and blood to the eyes, thereby helping to drain away toxins or congestion to the eyes. These are free general eye exercises and acupressure points for overall eye health.
- Energy moving modalities such as acupuncture and microcurrent stimulation may be helpful.
- See all retinal support vitamins & supplements
Rods are good at ‘seeing’:
- things that move but only in black and white
- seeing in the dark
- seeing things on the sides of us (peripheral vision)
- things that are still
- fine details of thing in daylight
- objects in color
- things in fine detail including reading, looking at photographs and recognizing faces
- gradual loss of night vision
- gradual loss of peripheral vision
- sensitivity to bright light
- vision is best at dusk
- errors in color vision in both red-green and blue-yellow ranges
- Fast ‘to and fro’ movements of the eyes. This is referred to Nystagmus.
- ‘Roving’ eye movements where the eyes appear to slowly wander around not fixing and staying still on any objects.
- ‘Eye Poking’ where the child touches their eyes with their fingers.
Most Rod-Cone Dystrophies are genetically based and result from “misprints” in a child’s genes, and are typically carried forward from the parents’ genes although sometimes by chance a new mistake occurs in the child’s genes and the parents’ genes are normal.
