"Relatively few health plans seem to cover routine visits to eye doctors or basic eye care needs, like eyeglasses or contact lenses. eye care under most medical plans instead is limited to the treatment of eye diseases. Still, some plans are more generous than others. For example, some of them provide broader coverage for the "diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the eye" without limitation by disease or age group. Others, in contrast, limit eye care to "nonsurgical treatment for amblyopia and strabismus, for children from birth through age twelve."

"As the name implies, it is supposed to be helpful in the treatment of problems of the eye. In fact, herbal folklore has it that it can treat all the maladies of the eye and even restore sight to the blind! Eyebright does have some astringent properties, and tinctures of the herb have been reported to help with one eye problem—conjunctivitis—in some. Homeopathic physicians use eyebright for colds, hay fever, as well as for conjunctivitis. Unfortunately, there are many reports that application of drops of the tincture in the eye can cause itching, redness, swelling and other adverse symptoms."

"For example, in your eyes you have the genes for every tissue in your body, but only the eye genes are turned on. You do not have skin genes turned on in your eyes. Conversely, in your skin, your eye genes (which are present there) are turned off, so you never have eyes growing out of the skin on your arm. (Although some frogs have been found with extra legs or eyes growing out of their stomachs. What does that say?) What this means is that some genes are always "on" or "off; others are sometimes on and sometimes off. If it is always on, a gene will always be expressed. figure 5."

Homeopathic physicians use eyebright for colds, hay fever, as well as for conjunctivitis. Unfortunately, there are many reports that application of drops of the tincture in the eye can cause itching, redness, swelling and other adverse symptoms. Application of eyebright to the eye is definitely not advised. Fennel ___(Beware of the Oils) Fennel and finocchio are the common names for the plant Foeniculum vulgare, a member of the carrot family."

"Melanin also determines hair and eye color. More melanin means darker hair and darker eyes. The milk white skin of an albino is caused by an enzyme deficiency that results in the production of little or no melanin. When you see the pink or red eyes that albinos usually have, you're actually seeing the blood vessels in the retina at the back of the eye, made visible by the lack of pigment in the iris. As everybody knows, skin color changes, to some extent, in response to sun exposure. The trigger for that response is the pituitary gland."

"The eyes are created by expanding gases that are emitted by a bacterium known as the eye former. The eye former is introduced during the early stages of Swiss cheese production. The bacterium forms the holes, helps ripen the cheese, and lends Swiss cheese its distinctive flavor. The eyes, then, are not there for cosmetic reasons. Still, some domestic "Swiss" cheesemakers mechanically "add" holes to already formed cheese produced without the eye-former bacterium. This shortcut is what robs some domestic varieties of the mature flavor of genuine Swiss cheese."

"Nearsighted people often have pain above the eye under the eyebrow due to this tension and stress. Conversely, a farsighted person sometimes experiences pain in the temples where some of the oblique muscles underlie. Hypertonic oblique muscles reflex-ively inhibit the oblique muscle and the eye is always predisposed to distant vision and eventually due to lack of innervations, the oblique muscle becomes more and more useless."

"He removed the eyeballs from the corpse and poured the vitreous humor from one eye into a watch glass. It was clear, "perfectly pellucid," Ransome wrote. Dalton's hypothesis was wrong. Then the assistant cut a nick in the other eyeball and looked through it to see if objects that were red and green appeared gray. They did not, leading Ransome to conclude that whatever had caused Dalton's color blindness must have happened outside his eyeball, in nerves connecting the eye to the brain."

"In the early stages the therapist talks quietly to the patient, repeating suggestions that they are tired, or has the subject look at an object such as a spinning wheel. eye muscles become tired, the eyelids become heavy and close involuntarily and the subject enters a light trance. At this stage simple movements can be performed on request, such as raising an arm. A deep hypnotic state follows and the patient becomes receptive to post-hypnotic suggestions, or can be guided into past behaviour."

"Symptoms and signs: bruising and slow wound healing; frequent head colds with wet, runny nose and watery eyes; eye pain or pain when moving the eyes; eyestrain headaches; conjunctivitis; poor vision and eye problems such as cataracts and glaucoma. (Note: may also need TRMA).

"Light comes from the human eye, they sensibly reasoned, and things got bright because the eye was pointed at them. Drawings of the time show draftsmen and laborers going around the streets of Renaissance Florence with Superman-style light cones beaming out of their eyes. It was a plausible idea, especially as the drawings always showed street scenes during the day and, as everyone knows it's impossible to see people during the day without pointing your eyes at them, these invisible light beams from the eye no doubt swinging along like searchlights as the head was moved."

"Neck and eye Exercises • Sitting upright, nod head forward slowly, three times. Nod to the left shoulder three times. Nod to the back three times, letting the mouth fall open. Nod to the right shoulder three times. Slowly roll the head clockwise three times, then reverse. Inhale. Shut eyes tightly. Hold position with breath. Exhale, open eyes wide and blink rapidly 10 times. Opening eyes wide, look in a slow circle. Repeat in opposite direction. Now, look diagonally. Next, look up and down 10 times. Rub palms together vigorously. Close eyes and cover with palms."

"Eye Toxicity Eye toxicity may be caused by direct contact of a toxin with the eye or by internal distribution of the toxin to the eye. Conjunctivitis and corneal erosion may be observed after exposure to chemicals. Chemicals in the circulatory system distributed to the eye can result in corneal opacity, cataracts, and retinal and optic nerve damage. Hepatotoxicity The liver is particularly susceptible to toxicity because of its large blood supply and important role in metabolism, both of which expose the organ to potentially high doses of toxic metabolites."

"Broccoli does indeed contain two phytochemicals thought to help eye health, lutein and zeaxanthin, and fend off macular degeneration (an age-related eye disease). Broccoli may help reduce inflammation and joint pain. Laboratory studies show that sulforaphane may also block an enzyme that triggers inflammation and joint pain. This is great news for those who suffer from arthritis or give their bones and joints a beating by running on hard surfaces or playing contact sports."

"Cluster headaches, a type of migraine, typically cause severe pain around or behind one eye. Sinus headaches are caused by congestion and possibly infection of the sinuses. The pain is usually in the face, spreading from above the eyes to as far as the gum line. A feeling of pressure is common. Persistent headaches without a specific cause may be due to your environment or food intake. In this case, start with the Cleanse and Fortify Program described in chapter 4 to bring your body back into balance. After a few days, continue with the Optimal Nutrient Support program to ensure good health."

"As I spoke with Ushi, I caught Sayoko's eye. She was sitting off to the side, watching my interview. "Sayoko," I said, conscious of the fact that I was raising my voice inappropriately, but also figuring that Sayoko was too polite to approach Ushi without being beckoned. "Don't you want to tell Ushi your story?" Sayoko hesitated but then came forward and knelt in front of Ushi. "Five years ago I came here, and you changed my life," she said. "Because of you, I decided to quit my job and get married. I owe you a big debt of thanks." Sayoko's eyes welled up with tears as she spoke."

"In addition to one's physical eyes, which take in light, there is the eye of the mind, which is sensitive to reason, and the eye of the soul, which comprehends higher matters. In order to grasp nonlocal mind, we shall have to open all our eyes. Otherwise we may not see the evidence for nonlocal mind even when it is staring us in the face. How can we open our various eyes to these matters? The path I endorse in this book is that of nonattachment—setting aside our ideas about how we think the world ought to work and letting the evidence speak to us."

"Most cases involve sore and/or inflamed eyes in which there is considerable stinging and irritation associated with watery-to-thick discharges, or conjunctivitis (pink eye). The herb may help to relieve other symptoms that often accompany inflammed eyes, such as runny nose, earache and sneezing. Science, it appears, has been remiss in refusing to investigate this herb. Eyebright may be procured and used by itself as an eyewash or compress to potentiate the effects of this blend (do not use powdered herb for this purpose; use whole herb)."

"All of our major organs are encased, for instance, our skull encases our brain, the eye sockets our eyes, the rib cage our heart and lungs, and so on. Our cells and organs themselves are cavity-like in nature, most being sacklike or tubelike, for instance, the sinuses, the microtubules in the brain and kidneys, and the various organs themselves, such as the pineal and adrenal glands, ovaries, pancreas, and lungs. Obviously, the stiff or hard coating that surrounds or makes up the outer layer of vital tissues lends protection to these tissues and organs."

"Help for sore eyes: Bathe eyes with Euphrasia (eyebright) lotion to ease soreness (a tablespoon to a pint of freshly boiled water; let it cool, strain it, and bathe eyes with a separate cotton ball for each eye). Dosage: Give 1 tablet (of the 6C or 30C potency) every 2 hours for up to 6 doses, then 3 times daily once it has started to help. Tablets can be chewed or added to a small glass of water. Stop once symptoms are considerably better. Change the remedy after a day if there is no improvement or it has stopped helping."

"Along with the new reports of thinning ozone, we are faced with pictures of children in Australia and New Zealand who have to cover their skin and wear broad-brimmed hats, and with estimates of the increases in skin cancers and eye cataracts that are likely to result from the increased exposure to ultraviolet light. But skin cancers and eye cataracts will probably be the least of our worries. What will happen to other creatures? We cannot fit bees with sunglasses, and blind bees will not be much good as plant pollinators. The consequences of that could be catastrophic."

"They are round, pale brown and have a juicy, white flesh surrounding the single, shiny, dark brown seed with an eye-shaped marking (hence dragon's eye). The small-fruited longan or cat's eyes (subsp. malesianus) is considered inferior to the larger cultivated longan (subsp. longan). Longan may be confused with the similar-looking langsat or duku (Lansium domesticum, family Meliaceae) that is occasionally seen on Malaysian markets as clusters of fresh fruits. Origin & history Indigenous to India and Sri Lanka (perhaps also southern China)."

"Green peas also contain a very high amount of lutein and zeaxanthin, antioxidants specific to eye health. So why include green peas in a skin, hairs and nails chapter? Well, the better your eyesight, the less you squint and that translates to fewer wrinkles around your eyes! Where to buy it: At the grocery store in the frozen section-only 5% of farmed peas are available fresh from the market. How much to eat: Eat1 cup, three to four times a week. Quick Tip: The less water you use when cooking peas, the less vitamin C is lost. Steaming peas helps to preserve this essential vitamin."

"No longer are patients with eye problems going to the eye doctor or opthalmologist, but rather to a specialist on retinal disease, or a specialist in lens replacement, a neuro-opthalmologist, or a refractive eye surgeon. It wasn't long ago when specializing in the eye alone, although very important indeed, seemed to be limiting oneself. Specialization offers many great strengths and advancements in medical technology, which would require several volumes of its own to do it justice."
