Glenn Beck’s Macular Dystrophy Eye Disease, What’s the Solution?

by David Jenyns

Fox TV personality Glenn Beck announced that he has a serious irreversible eye condition that may lead to blindness called macular dystrophy . Doctors told Beck there was nothing they could do to cure his disease. But, according to world-renowned nutritional expert Byron J. Richards, there is hope for Beck with nutritional supplement therapy. Richards also discusses why the FDA is standing in the way of American’s access to truthful health information.

OptometristMineolaNY.com Eye Specialist Mineola NY, Dr. Melania Napolitano sees glaucoma, cataracts and vision impairment as common eye care problems. Changes in vision should be monitored with annual eye exams. An eye examination of the optic nerve can detect the presence of glaucoma in addition to the pressure of the eye. Cataracts, affecting most adults in their early 50s can be removed by an ophthalmologist. Lasik eye surgery is not a treatment for cataracts; but is used to correct astigmatism, nearsightedness or farsightedness. Distorted vision can be caused by astigmatism or glaucoma. Medical issues should be ruled out before assuming a new prescription for eye glasses is all that is needed for restoration of clear vision. Macular degeneration erodes central vision, while glaucoma takes away the peripheral vision. Macular degeneration though also a cause of vision impairment, can be treated if diagnosed early. Prescription eye glasses or bifocals may be preferable for some eye care patients with an aversion toward contact lenses for easier reading.

What reform please elaborate. You talk for almost 9 minutes and don’t say very much except telling us what you don’t know. While trying to make us think you do know.
But Obama and the government is taking all those options away from us. Write your congressman about the FDA.

Glen Beck is a schill. I don’t know what a schill is but apparently he is one and that isn’t good.

It’s not macular dystrophy… It’s called macular degeneration. This is a degenerative process which is much different from dystrophy. And there is no invoivement with the cornea, it involves the macula in the back of the eye not the cornea. I would not ever recommend anyone have treatment by you. You should do your research before you make yourself look so silly on YouTube.

Byron, well said. For all the reasons you mention, fascinating that this is happening to Mr Beck. My mother had macular degeneration – not nice. regards Jennifer

No, it’s well known that Beck’s vision problems stem from the toxins methanol and formaldehyde in diet soda. Most eye docs won’t admit this because it would take away their business. Google the movie Sweet Poison and visit Dorway.com for the truth. Most docs in this country are incompetent or corrupt quacks and can’t be trusted any more than lawyers. And this disinfo video is a prime example.

Good to see that there are still people out there using their minds. If Beck thinks he is going to go blind then he will- blind because of his lack of knowledge that is readily available if one looks for it.

Lots of Carrot Juice Vitamin B1 and Euphrasia officinalis/EyeBright drops not hard really.. Drinking 1 cup of sage tea per day helps too…Gray Sage…

Raw egg yolks for eye health from eggs that come from free range, antibiotic free hens that eat natural diet.

@Toroa28
Did you mean worst amongst the developed countries?
I don’t think those Africans have such great health, or southeast Asia, or the central Asian republics, or south America, or the Middle east.

America has one of the worst healthcare systems in the world, Google it if you don’t believe me, Many countries in the world have a good public healthcare system and guess what THEY ARE NOT COMMUNIST COUNTRIES!, Canada, Australia, NewZealand, Wake up America Glenn Beck could have benefited from health reform yet he campaigns against it.

@christhemountain Glenn Beck is NOT interested in being president..He just wants America to be free and not be forced like Obama and the progressives want to do and in process of taking over everything, even if we get help or not medically rationing of care ..a lot of people will be denied care that would save their life, and yet illegals will be taking our rationed part ..We will die sooner ..since age makes you prone to many problems,, Obama just as well be saying to kill them

macular degeneration is not clouding of cornea. it is a problem of the most important region in retina.

corneal dystrophy is what he probably means

I would love to fully agree with this guy, but he is talking about cataracts, not macular dystrophy. Macular dystrophy involves the degradation of the macula, part of the retina, where the nerves themselves are found. Cataracts is a clouding of the lens, which is what this gentleman seems to be talking about. However, I do believe him insofar that the government involvement in health information is causing a negative effect, rather than a positive one.
