Cataract Update

    Interestingly my B12 was super high when tested in September - see attached.

    I asked the opthamologist why she thought I had a cataract at such a young age and she said it can be related to asthma pump and steroid use - (both of which I had to take) and then theres chemo... Why I have it in only my right eye I don't know. It's the same eye that had the retinal tear 8 years ago.

    Instead of checking vit B12 I was about to suggest homocysteine.
    but you got it and it is ok.
    Vit D could be higher.
    You have a good fasting insulin.

    I know. Disappointing about vit d but that’s August in London and September rain in Ibiza think.

    But good things too. Yayyyyyy

    This is likely why the cataract occurred in my view......a combination of things that freed retinol to cause destruction in an asymmetry fashion.

    Are you referring to the B12 issue or the drugs I took?

    I think he's referring to Asthma treatment:)

    If I may add my 2 cents... this sounds like a posterior subcapsular cataract, which is known to be associated with steroids.



    As has been suggested, glasses would not work after cataract surgery on one eye due to ANISEIKONIA -- that is, if the cataract eye is targeted for minimal prescription, which is what is typically done, and the other healthy eye is still a -12 diopter eye -- this difference is too large and would cause aniseikonia, which can't be treated with glasses -- only contacts or cataract surgery (refractive lens exchange technically if no cataract) on the fellow eye.

    Technically, you could have that right eye targeted at -12 diopters to match retinal image size of the left eye to avoid aniseikonia -- then you'd be able to wear glasses -- but I don't think any surgeon (or you would want to do that.

    Which leads me to follow up your question to Jack -- cataract surgery on the right eye with a clear IOL -- one that allows in ~370-400 nm UVA light. Might this be okay since this amount of UVA light can lead to non-linear effects? If so, given that the non-linear effects of UVA can be received in this IOL eye -- might it also be okay to wear a contact in the fellow eye? Or does there need to be bilateral UVA input? About 55% of optic nerve fibers do travel to the contralateral brain, so perhaps unilateral input can suffice with setting the clock/SCN? Could also see if they make non-UV blocking contacts as well. Anyway, appreciate any thoughts!

    Yes I just wanted to check it was the same one and you hadn't added anything?
    What do you think about it?

    I thought I would add an update to this thread as its been a while..

    So Jman and I conversed a lot over the end of last year and he really helped me with understanding my cataract and looking into the right type of IOL to use if I go ahead. I went to see two top surgeons in the UK and they both suggested operating on the one eye and using a single focus lens. I did highlight the lens thats let in more UV to them so they considered this but my gut told me not to go ahead so I put it off again.

    Then I saw the guy here in Ibiza again as I can hardly see out of this eye now so its really bothering me. He actually uses the IOLs that let in more UV anyway. He suggested having both eyes operated on because of the high myopia and the difficulties afterwards for the brain. He will be my choice if I go ahead as he has a good name and I like him.

    However since then I have been sent info on a few things which I am considering.

    One of which is a RIFE machine. I'm not sure if anyone knows anything about them? But, the principal is that they are a frequency generator and the theory is they have hundreds of settings to use for various pathogens etc...
    There are people saying they have reversed their myopia and cataracts as well as other illnesses. Please see below..
    Does anyone know anything about these?

    The other idea to help is to use peptides as explained here...

    And finally more drops - the Lanosteral ones as well as ascorbic acid directly in to the eye. Along with high doses of Vit C and glutathione and other supps.

    If anyone has any thoughts or advice I would greatly appreciate it.

    Something in me is telling me to hold off but I don't want to leave it too late in case I damage the eye and also put too much strain on the my eye without the cataract, especially at night with my blueblockers - I can hardly see when driving so its a bit scary... The surgeon here reckons I have 9 months before it could be tricky to operate as it might be too hard.

    Thank you for any thoughts in advance..
