5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive and invaluable resource. 6 April 2000
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As well as being practicing optometrists, Dr. Marc Grossman and Dr. Glen Swartwout have been trained in Chinese medicine, acupuncture, and naturopathic medicine. Both have also published previous books. Their joint effort, Natural Eye Care, An Encyclopedia: Complementary Treatments For Improving And Saving Your Eyes, draws from the best of traditional and modern medicine for the prevention and treatment of eye disorders. The authors say that their "primary goal is to offer a practical approach to vision care based on an underlying philosophy that emphasizes prevention rather than cure." They begin with a fascinating discussion of how the eye functions, including information like "the entire blood volume of the body passes through the eyes every 40 minutes or so." Although many of us don't realize it, our eyes are the first to suffer when we feel physical or mental stress. They also cite studies showing that allergies in children improve when their vision is enhanced through vision therapy. Dr. Grossman and Dr. Swartwout devote one chapter to a explanation of the various natural treatments and how they are used for treating vision disorders. They emphasize the "vision diet," which focuses on eating lots of fresh foods and eliminating processed or refined foods. They also discuss the role of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), acupressure, herbs, physical exercise, eye exercises, spinal adjustments, and homeopathy in preventing and treating eye diseases. Each of the following eye diseases have their own chapter: glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, dry eyes, sties, floaters, and conjunctivitis (pink eye). The authors provide a description of the causes and symptoms of each disease, and a summary of conventional treatment. They then describe a healing program for those who have each vision disorder, based on natural treatments. Each chapter ends with a prevention program for those who still have healthy eyes. An appendix provides acupressure directions. They also include an extensive reference section, and listing for resources for those who can't obtain natural products locally. Dr. Grossman and Dr. Swartwout say that "the good news is that we don't have to be passive victims of eye disease. Eye deterioration can often be stopped--and even reversed." Readers will find Natural Eye Care, An Encyclopedia a comprehensive and invaluable resource for the prevention and treatment of vision disorders.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book was mentioned in a YouTube Video by a Woman with Macular Degeneration 5 Mar. 2011
By Marie Flowers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I heard about this book by Kris Homme who has macular degeneration. She testified before the FDA in 2010 because she was poisoned by mercury from her dental fillings. I will provide a link to her testimony and a two slide review of what to do for macular degeneration which mentioned this book.

This link could save someone's eye sight. Kris is an educated woman with a degree so I know she has researched this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential information for anyone with eyes 9 Sept. 2012
By Noisette - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an amazing book. The two authors, Drs. Marc Grossman & Glen Swartwout, have gathered vital information about caring for your eyes. It has been so helpful to me, for dry eyes, and a friend who has macular degeneration found it had answers for her needs. The authors have training in optometry, acupuncture, naturopathic medicine and Chinese medicine and all of their suggestions make great sense. This book really offers a lot of support, i've never found so much useful information gathered in one place.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent source of information! 12 Jan. 2015
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Excellent source of information for anyone who is interested in keeping or saving their failing eyesight! It deals with treating eye disorders holistically. The book was well thought out - it talks about diet changes, supplements, acupuncture/acupressure, exercise, and lots more. There are lists of places to get the various products that are listed. I would totally recommend this book to anyone! I bought it to help treat my glaucoma.
