The fourth edition of BLIND FAITH is now available worldwide in Kindle and Printed Book on Amazon. This edition contains scan and test results that were available at the time of publication confirming that it is possible to reverse dry and wet macular degeneration.
This Post includes additional details from my latest appointment with my Ophthalmologist that weren’t available when the book went to the printer. This is still an ongoing story as I continue to deal with the earlier botched cataract operation that I briefly mention below. I encourage everyone to refer to Book Updates on my blog as things unfold.
Reverse Dry and Wet Macular Degeneration – New Information
Latest test and scan details from my appointment on June 16, 2016. It also shows the progress made since my previous appointment on May 17 2016. My Ophthalmologist’s observations in the Retinal Exam Follow up dated May 17, 2016 have cleared up in the June 16 Retinal Exam Followup.
Retinal Exam Follow up
The picture on the right was taken off my Ophthalmologist’s computer screen. As we talked he let me photograph it with my iPhone. So this is as original as they come.
I had not received any drugs or Anti-VEGF injections since January 2016. I had been off my protocol since Christmas 2015. I went back on my protocol on April 19, 2016. I’ve kept a Time Line for everything which I have included in the second abstract of my book. These two Retinal Exam Follow ups provide a good comparison over the period of one month.
Because these are not the best pictures I’m going to summarize the important parts:
Retinal Exam Follow up for May 17, 2016
- Vision – May 17, 2016: OD 20/70 – OS 20/40.
- The “Assessment Plan” box in the lower left includes the following:
FA Large Scar
OCT edema in scar OD Drusen OS
?? worse edema
Retinal Exam Follow up for June 16, 2016
- Vision – June 16, 2016: OD 20/80 – OS 20/25.
- No “Assessment Plan” box. My Ophthalmologist said that there was no or little indication of edema, scars or drusen. His comments to me were simply, “both eyes are very healthy.”
Note: The vision noted in the right eye of 20/70 and 20/80 for both months indicates the problems I’m still having with the earlier botched cataract operation before I was diagnosed with macular degeneration. This caused swelling and bruising and a condition called Aiseikonia. Because of this my vision can vary from day to day and my Ophthalmologist says to expect this. He tells me that my protocol is also reducing this swelling and bruising and hopefully that will continue. I briefly explain all of this in my book.
My lelft eye vision has returned to 20/25 but I’m still seeing a small bit of central distortion even though it doesn’t show on the scan.
They Say It’s Not Possible to Reverse Dry and Wet Macular Degeneration
I don’t agree. I’m not a doctor and can only talk about what I “see” and what the test results show. My Ophthalmologist says, and the retinal exams show, that the scars, edema and drusen have pretty well cleared up and there is no more bleeding. Now that I’m back on my full Protocol I’m seeing what I saw before I was diagnosed with macular degeneration.
