I just wrapped up my weeklong treatment with Dr. Rosenfarb and have experienced more improvements, particularly in my mid-to-far horizontal and bottom periphery (I still have very little top peripheral vision).

I still have a donut of complete blindness around my central core– but it’s shrinking from the outside in. The goal that Dr. Rosenfarb and I have now set  is to concentrate on strengthening my central vision).  My visual acuity is now fantastic and I have expanded my core central visual field a little. But it still needs work.  I’m thrilled maintaining what I have. But if I can expand that some, even better.

Here are my test results to date — with today’s results included.  Happy Friday everyone. I’m heading off to catch my plane.

    I don’t understand all the test result’s above, but it look’s like your maintaining your vision, and gaining a little. Did you try the eye Dr. in Canada ? What vitamin’s, herb’s, or etc. do you use ?

      Hi Kay,

      From where I started in December, I’ve had — at least for me — what I view as significant gains. I slid back a little after 3 months but regained all the improvements I made in December and expanded my mid and far periphery. The central core is still a challenge for me though..and I’m hoping that I’ll be able to expand it more than what I cur currently have. I take a variety of supplements: TUDCA, Vitamin D. Omega 3, the lutein combo (with the L and A words I can’t think of right now.) I also take things to support my adrenal glands and some Chinese herbs. More than any of this, though – I really watch my diet. I green juice every morning and try to stay on an anti-inflammatory diet as much as possible.
