Eye Pressure High - Natural Options??

Due to an assault many years ago, my partner lost the sight in one eye and since then has, gained poor eyesight in the other. He has also had three retinal detachments in his 'seeing' eye, which was secured with a strap to keep the retina in place a few years ago.

He has to have yearly check ups at the hospital and when we went a few days ago to have his eye checked, they found that the pressure was VERY high (38mmHG in his right eye and 32mmHG in his left eye - pre dilation and post dilation was 43 right and 33 left ....If that means anything to anybody??) :confused:

Anyway, he's got to go to a Glaucoma clinic in two months, but in the meantime, they gave him some eye drops to reduce the pressure. But when we looked at the side effects, they were so many it was unbelievable and very serious ones too (Including damaging the eye and heart problems, including congestive heart failure!!!). So my partner does not want to use them, but we are worried about the pressure in his eyes and wonder if there is a way to reduce it more naturally???

There are two nutritional products that may interest you, one of which has been designed specifically to lower intraocular pressure and support the health of the retinas of the eyes. Dr. Julian Whitaker, M.D., who is the Director of the Whitaker Wellness Institute and the Editor of the medical newsletter, Health & Healing, has developed a line of high quality nutritional/vitamin supplements, including one called Ocular Pressure & Retina Defense. In describing it, Dr. Whitaker states:

"Did you know that the right nutrients can have dramatic effects on critical areas of vision like ocular pressure and retinal health? Specifically, clinical studies show that the blend of two highly researched ingredients - Pycnogenol French Maritime Pine Bark Extract and Mirtoselect Bilberry Extract - in Ocular Pressure & Retina Defense, can lower intraocular pressure and support the health of your retinas.

This exclusive Mirtogenol blend is the first natural solution of its kind. And unlike some conventional approaches, such as eye drops, my vision supplement Ocular Pressure & Retina Defense has no side effects.
. . .
But what's really impressive is that when combined with the bilberry in the patented Mirtoselect nutrient blend, the combination has been shown to significantly improve intraocular pressure and blood flow in the eyes."

The second product which may interest you is Dr. Whitaker's Vision Essentials Gold which he recommends be used along with his Ocular Pressure & Retina Defense.
