You may have heard about the harmful effects some electronics can have on eye health. Eye strain from spending so much time in front of our phones, computers, tablets, and TV is becoming a widespread problem. Additionally, the screens on these devices and the now common LED light bulbs, emit High Energy Blue Light. Research has shown links between this technology and an increase in eye damage. There has been an alarming increase in Macular Degeneration which is the leading cause of blindness in the US.
The macula (or macula lutea) is an oval-shaped pigmented area near the center of the retina. Our macula is essential for central vision. When it’s damaged this is what we see:
The good news is that there is now a non-invasive test to assess your risk of macular degeneration and a clinically proven method to reverse any damage found.
The M-Pod is an ingenious instrument which allows measurement of your macula using a series of special vision tests. No surgery, no invasive tests or probing of the eyes is needed, yet it gives us vital information about the condition of your macula.
If the test results show that your macula is thinning, then we can start you on a course of Macuhealth; a clinically proven supplement that can repair the macular tissue. The reality of this repair mechanism is stunning. All too many supplements are unproven scientifically and raise questions about the truth of their benefits. Being able to reverse macular damage with Macuhealth is a huge victory for medical science. Further M-Pod tests can also verify that the Macuhealth Dr. Kramer has prescribed has reversed the damage.
