When eye problems are linked in a time period, a pattern appears to emerge. For some persons, one eye difficulty seems to follow another. Secondly, when each occurrence is connected to a life situation, stress factors appear to play a role in the onset of symptoms and problems. Physical stress is one thing, however, emotional stress needs to be investigated.
In the following patient’s history, one can clearly see that one eye difficulty followed another, until the patient has only little sight left in one eye. This patterned sequence raises a question. Had the patient dealt with the source problem in the beginning, in this case an early onset of a lazy eye and strabismus, would there have been fewer problems in the future?
Another point, does surgery of the eye, on the one hand offer a compensation, and on the other, induce subtle weakness to the tissue? Does this invasion of tissue predispose future problems arising? Like the situation where doctors are now concerned that radiation is far more likely to kill you than the cancer it is treating.
Another point of interest, is why does one patient show a strabismus on one eye, and the next the other eye? Is there perhaps a reason why there is a lazy view through one eye? Is it possible that this laziness and turning has at its source confusing perceptions?
The patient writes:
“Dear Dr Kaplan
I am 61 years old. Since childhood my left eye has been lazy and corrected with surgery at age 14. After the surgery, I slowly started to lose the sight in the left eye and now it is only 5%. My right eye sight has always been good without glasses. After age 40, I used reading glasses. In a few years, my far vision became worse and used progressive lenses for all distances.
In my mid fifties, I had laser surgery so that I would only have to use reading glasses. A few years later, I was diagnosed with chronic serous choroidopathy in my right eye, and slowly started losing my sight in this eye. It dropped from 75% sight to where it is now 30%. A year ago, I was diagnosed with Glaucoma in both eyes and use drops in both eyes as a treatment.
Now, I have been diagnosed with cataract in the right eye, and an implantation has been recommended. What can I do differently?”
Suggestions in a case like this:
i) Complete a full investigation of the life stress factors that are still in place.
ii) Have the patient dive into incompletions on emotional situations in their life
iii) Modify their eating and exercise pattern that assists the future self healing of the remaining eye function.
iv) Use complementary methods, such as Energetic EyeHealing, as part of the ongoing vision care program.
When a patient like this is examined at a young age, a thorough case history must investigate emotional mitigating factors related to the eye condition at the time. In this way prevention of future deterioration is possible.
