I've had dry, irritated eyes this winter. I believe it is temporary, from wearing contacts too long. I never had this before. My optometrist prescribed eye drops. My eyes are better, but still sore. It's been a couple of months. He suggested... (more)
I am told numerous times a day that I look really tired! My eyes have massive bags under them. I get around 7 hours of sleep a night. Have been paleo for around 2 years now and have always had the issue. I start work at 5am in the morning... (more)
Hey Guys! So I follow a 5-6 day low carb paleo diet pretty high in fat, high in protein, and stick pretty much with green leafy veggies. 1 day a week I do carb refeed. VERY high in carbs. I eat a lot of white rice, sweet potatoes, fruit,... (more)
I've had a bursted blood vessel in my eyes several times since I was 35. It first started off as a little red dot and has become progressively worse. The doctor and optometrist said it will heal and not to worry. Part of my eye will be a... (more)
Don't know much about this subject, but I'll ask a question to help answer a question. Do you wear contact lenses? Can you eat Broccoli? Loads of K. Opthamologist would be a better choice than optometrist.
I am suffering from some type of conjuntivituis at the moment and I am dosing the eyes with these drops. What is the efect on the rest of the organim? Is it in any way similar to taking antibiotics orally?
When I put them in my eyes, shortly afterwards I feel them travelling through my sinuses and can taste them in the back of my mouth and throat. thanks for the comments
My own experience is that one can sort of get addicted to wearing them. When I was younger, I would wear them all the time and I am sure my eyes were far more light sensitive. The last ten years of so, I have simply not bothered (mostly due to... (more)
I've recently been trying to "hack" my vision; possibly revrese/get rid of my floaters and visual snow, and if anything, increase my vision (although it's already good, I believe 20/20, but will be getting it tested at the ophthalmologist soon). I... (more)
I'm 32 and have had glasses since I was a teenager (near-sightedness). One of the reasons I don't wear contacts other than during exercise or social events is because my eyes feel tired and sandy the next day, irrespective of how well I've rested.... (more)
I've noticed that I usually have a bit of glassiness to my eyes. They're not bright white. I've been paleo for 7 months now and I believe that this was an issue before making the switch. I'm wondering if there's a nutrient that I'm missing or... (more)
I'm about 21 days into Primal eating and I noticed my eyes are always red now. It also started around the same time I think I went into Ketosis. Any idea why this is happening? Something with my thyroid?
So I spend an inordinate amount of time in my office at work, mostly staring at pieces of paper or a computer screen, and I am wondering how to do the least amount of damage to my eyesight. I have two big windows, so I can get a fair amount of... (more)
Hey Paleo eaters! Since iam eating paleo, ive noticed many things that changed with my body and i want to know why. My friends and people around me go "crazy" about my eyes now. They are blue like the Ocean. When i eat normal on a SAD with... (more)
Do any of you do eye exercises to improve your vision, or just to relieve computer/tv strain (or other activites that cause strain such as reading, knitting, needlework etc.)? If you do, describe some of the things you do and how it has helped. I... (more)
My dad pointed out to me in about December that my eyes look so cool, there's blue where the white should be and I didn't know what he was talking about. I later checked a few days later in the mirror and it turns out he was right. The whites of... (more)
I have been 90% paleo for about 3 weeks now, and I find that even when eating 50g+ carbs per day I still have dry eyes, which I associate with not enough glucose in my body/diet (http://perfecthealthdiet.com/?p=1077). I have dry eyes today- typed... (more)
Before you tell me that there will always be something better around the corner, and if I keep waiting I'll just be blind forever, hear me out... I've been doing a lot of research on LASIK and there are actually quite a few different forms... (more)
I have inflammation in my right eye. I've tried multiple supplements, nutritional (Paleo) diet/eating, eye drops, etc. and the only thing that has gotten rid the pinguecula (inflammation) in my right eye has been steroid eye drops. Are they safe... (more)
For about 10 years, I have had puffiness from directly under my eyes to my cheekbones. I don't think its 'bags'. It is just a persistent puffiness. I thought this had gone away when i eliminated grains and sugar, but it hasn't heres a recent... (more)
My mom was just told that she has cataracts in both eyes that need to be surgically removed. She's only 57, and has only recently needed reading glasses, eats a mostly Paleo diet(for years), and generally takes extremely good care of herself. She... (more)
Okay, so I suppose 80% of my questions will involve my mother somehow! >_< She's a hardcore skeptic, and is super concerned with her cholesterol numbers. (By the way, her total is 224, HDL ~50 since menopause). She was pretty horrified to... (more)
My uncle supposedly stopped wearing glasses, and his vision went back to normal. I'm curious to see what he has to say about it. Update: Awhile back I emailed him about it, and I don't think this was necessarily the case. I apologize for the... (more)
My right eye has what is called pinguecula (allergy - build up of protein). It looks like I have pink eye/blood shot. I can't seem to find anything that works. I've tried oils, lemon juice, honey, tear drops, eye drops, some natural eye drops... (more)
I'm work in an optometrist (eye doctor) office. Dust, wind, and UV sunlight are associated with pinguecula and ptergyium (similar to the pinguecula) but grow further in. Sunglasses outdoors are the recommendation. I see them frequently in patients... (more)
So, I've had dry eyes for a long time, at least going back 8 or so years. My Mom also always noticed that my eyes were bloodshot most of time - saying that I should play less computer games, but that's beside the point. I've noticed I had a... (more)
My right eye gets red every spring, summer, and fall, and there is a build up of protein called "pinguecula". It usually clears up during the snowy winters here in ND. My eye doctor always prescribes eye drugs or steroids for my eye which I do... (more)
What kind of nutrition are in these things (pig/beef/fish/etc eyes)? I ask since I'm planning on roasting a whole pig's head in a couple weeks and getting all excited about it, and was wondering if the eyes are any good nutritionally. Thanks! (more)
