    Default whats good for the eyes?

    Hi fellow

    Im wondering whats good for the eyes, both for vision and against inflammation. Ive heard that lycopene, vitamin A and certain carotenoids are good - also some fatty acids are claimed to be good. Anyone having something to add here. There are so many things that may happen to your eyes (retinopathy, macular degeneration, trombosis, cancer, floaters, VEGF problems from rosacea, allergies, inflammtion blah blah blah) - so how to prevent all those things?

    A quality, pharmaceutical grade Evening Primrose Oil supplement (gamma linolenic acid) helped me tremendously with my eyes. You need to take a couple of hundred milligrams of GLA--NOT the EPO--for a couple of months so it will build up in your system, from what I understand.

    Toleraine Soothing Light Facial Fluid for moisturizer. I don't use a special cleanser. Clonidine daily; klonopin sometimes.
    BEST and CURRENT TREATMENT I use: Low-Level Red Light Therapy LED array.
    Please feel free to PM me with your low-level red light therapy (LLRLT) questions. I'm happy to help if I can.

    Its not healthy taking GLA, like its not healthy taking betacarotene if you are a smoker, dont know if you get cancer, but it just isnt healthy.

    Health from the Sun, Efamol, there are other brands, too.

    Fanta--link? It's an anti-inflammatory fatty acid. How would that cause cancer?

    David and Group,

    Fanta has been proven to be Marc from Denmark (the crazy one on EFSB). Ignore all posts by Fanta/Marc for the sake of science and clarity. David, this supplement is very safe. No worries.


    Moderators, please discuss removing Marc again (Fanta).

    GLA may be pro-inflammatory which is not healthy. In general im always trying not to take too much of certain fat-soluble vitamins, antioxidants and acids. Fat-soluble vitamins A, D and E are toxic when taken in excess. GLA and betacarotene may be pro-inflammatory under certain conditions.
    I just dont want to add bad things to my body, I always have a holistic view on things, thats all there is to it.
    With something like inflammation of the meibomian glands you benefit from something fat-soluble anti-inflammatory, like GLA, Omega 3 DHA, vitamin E, isotretinoin and doxycycline.
