Vision of the Middle Ages (Presbyopia) – How to Avoid the Aging Eye and Recover Your Close Vision
This is an overly familiar picture: a group of middle-aged people shrank in a restaurant that needed to read the menu. Some feel that their arms are too short; others support, move their arms under the trombone syndrome. Yet others, through glasses, handkerchiefs.
What's going on here? They were found in the mid 40s or early 50s. From this point on, the eye begins to lose its ability to be seen closely. It is called middle-aged vision, the medical expression of condition is called presbyopia, because of the Greek "aging eye" or "old eye".
Presbyopia in the United States can earn more than 100 million adults. presbyopia.org, more than nine million Americans will start their books and newspapers a bit further away from their faces to see them clearly.
"Vision-Reducing Vision" turns out to be the third most important health problem for women in heart disease and aging, according to a survey by the Varilux Boomer Watch. According to another survey, the American National Eye Institute presented its vision of "the Most Valuable Sensors", but concluded that most people cared more than their eyes.
Most ophthalmologists say there is no remedy for presbyopia, except for surgery or correction lenses.
Julie-Ann Zilavy, a New York businesswoman, found herself to see the print for six months. The intestine felt that once he started using the glasses his eyes were more and more dependent on him. And he did not care about the risk of surgical intervention.
Presbyopia's surgical medicines include leading keratoplasty (CK), which costs up to $ 2500 and is not covered by health insurance. Only one eye was detected by an FDA panel warning that CK "could affect depth detection [a patient’s]" and thus pose a driving hazard. In 99% of CK patients, the results last only three to five years, then wear out and the procedure repeated up to three times.
Behavioral Optometry Dr. Carl F. Gruning, Southport, Connecticut, a full-time clinical professor at SUNY College of Optometry and a world leader in visual therapy, does not recommend CK surgery. Tell the patients: "It's relatively new and does not rush."
Zilavy was looking for a natural alternative. Dr. Ray Gottlieb found his way to reading glasses. Ray Gottlieb, PhD, Ph.D., F.C.O.V.D., a Vision Therapy Optometrist in Rochester, New York. His work challenges conventional thinking about vision, including the notion that aging eyes should read glasses.
"I've seen my patients improve their close-ups, do not read glasses, get rid of them, or weaker ones," says Dr. Gottlieb, also Deanna of the Synton Optometry College
. Gottlieb discovered that he would become a novel method of nearly thirty years ago when he wanted to help with 52-year-old patients without biphasic reading.
"The mechanism that eyes are clearly close to the accommodation," he says. "In young people, when an image is blurred, the eyes easily and automatically increase the focus, but with age the accommodation loses power and the blurred image is not enough to be unique."
Dr. Gottlieb believes that another ophthalmic action – convergence – also encourages accommodation. "To get closer, both eyes turn inward or converge to show together what we try to see," he says. "Turning our eyes inward, we also stimulate our ability to feel close by, approaching another mechanism that is known as a convergence placement."
So Dr. Gottlieb made a carefully prepared diagram that closely coordinates the patient's eyes and found that this allowed the patient to see clearly in the vicinity. In practice, in a few weeks, the patient returned to announce that his problem was resolved and no glasses needed to be seen clearly in the vicinity. "The improvement lasted for years," he says. Gottlieb's method, which is available only once in a medical-patient environment, has now been developed for a home-based program. Eye exercises can be studied at home with a video tutorial, and can be used wherever they go anywhere, even on the go.
"It's much easier to see," says Zilavy, I can read the smaller print, the method is simple to learn, practice simple, spend four minutes a day, usually breakfast, get good results with a minimum of time. "
As we stretch, flex and exercise our body to prevent aging, Zilavy has found that his eyes, like other bodies, can enjoy exercise, retraining, and relaxation
as well as Convergence is a key element, the opposite – a divergence that allows the eye to relax muscles, so that the eyes are tailored to the distance. The conscious relaxation of the body, including the neck and shoulders, and important elements of your breathing Dr. Gottlieb reading glasses
The method will not work for a small percentage of people who have only one working eye, lazy eyes, eye problems or severe visual disturbances.
Dr. Jacob Liberman, author of Take of Your Glasses and See and Light : The medical science of the future, who used it, says: "The method (to reach the angel combines the most optimal vision therapy and natural vision exercises with a simple and effective way to sharpen your vision. "
The dominant belief that the only solution to this problem is stronger and stronger reading glasses, bifocals or surgery changes." Dr. Gottlieb, 63, who has never needed reading glasses, is testimony to himself.
