The power of sight: a most remarkable sense!
Given the immense complexity of the eye and its many structures, this is one area of the body that requires the utmost in attentive healthcare. Maintaining overall optimal health can go a long way to prolong our visual abilities and decrease the effects of aging on our vision. Preventative healthcare is always the key to success!
Clinically I find the following two items useful to support normal eye function:
1. Pleo Muc Eye drops
Homeopathic Opthalmic Demulcent Medicine by Sanum/PleoSanum.
European practitioners report that this remedy may be useful as supportive therapy for
- macular degeneration
and help support normal eye function by improving micro-circulation inside the eye.

2. Co Q 100
The Co-Q-100 - contains 100 mg of coenzyme Q10, also known as ubiquinone.
Coenzyme Q10 is an essential part of normal cell function. Present in the mitochondria (energy factories) of every cell, coenzyme Q10 is an essential factor in ATP (cell energy ) production.
Every cell of the human body needs it!
Understandably, the need for Coenzyme Q10 appears to be greatest in metabolically-active cells such as in the
- heart muscle
- nerve cells of the brain (neurons)
- gingiva (gums)
- immune system
- gastric mucosa (stomach lining)
- retina of the eye
There is evidence that Co-Q-100 may be useful as supportive therapy in
- Congestive Heart Failure (CHF)
- Periodontal Disease (Gum Disease)
- High Blood Pressure
- Gastric Ulcers
- Immune Dysfunction
- Visual disturbances - glaucoma - macular degeneration
Coenzyme Q10 appears to inhibit the oxidation of LDL cholesterol - much more efficiently than vitamin E. Consequently supplementing with Co-Q-100 may contribute to the slowing of atheroscerosis.
There is epidemiologic evidence in humans that uniformly shows a gradual decline in Coenzyme Q10 levels after the age of twenty. Supplementing with Co-Q-100 may very well contribute to the slowing of aging and age related degenerative diseases.
