Technical Sheet

A natural association intended to meet the needs of persones reached by Open angle Glaucoma

Glaucoma is the second cause of blindness in the USA after AMD

The term glaucoma indicates situations where there is a destruction of the optic nerve mostly, but not always, due to increased intra ocular pressure. What naturally has for consequence a loss of vision which can lead to blindness.

There are two types: open angle chronic glaucoma rare before age 50, and acute angle closure glaucoma him rare before age 70.

We can therefore say that the prevalence of both types of glaucoma increases with age.

The chronic open-angle glaucoma evolves in low noise.

Mostly the progressive increase of the intraocular pressure is the consequence of an increase of the resistance in the flow of the aqueous humor. This gradual increase in intraocular pressure gradually destroys nerve cells emerging from the optic nerve at the level of the papilla.

At the ophthalmological examination the subject has a normal iridocorneal angle that is open but it has a higher intraocular pressure at 20 mmHg, optic atrophy  more or less evolved, and impaired visual fields in report.

Hence the need for screening and thus control the intraocular pressure after 50 years or even earlier, if there are risk factors such as :

  • Glaucoma family history. We now know that approximately 30 % of the chronic glaucomas have a hereditary character
  • taking of corticosteroids by general or local way
  • Strong myopia
  • arterial hypotension

The treatment of chronic angle closure glaucoma is primarily one of the ocular hypertension and except in cases where surgery is required immediately, is medical treatment and needs of course, has to be followed by an ophthalmologist.

Natural physiological molecules to treat open-angle glaucoma

The vitamin C, has been the subject of largest number of research and effectively reduces the intraocular pressure significantly in many studies. (13, 14)

Of course, Vit. C does not cure glaucoma and must be taken continuously to lower the intraocular pressure.

It has been shown that coenzyme Q10 can significantly reduce the negative side effects of the medication beta-blocker timolol, which is conventionally used to lower the intraocular pressure.(15)

An additional anti-oxydant action can be obtained by taking the alpha lipoic acid. Studies have shown that it can improve visual function of patients with glaucoma at stage 1 or 2.(16)

So animal and epidemiological studies emphasize a possible protective and thus preventive effect of fatty acids omega 3 to the glaucoma. (17, 18 )

But the chronic glaucoma can also exist without increase of the intra-eye pressure and there it would be rather about a circulatory insufficiency at the level of the blood capillaries of the retina ; This circulatory insufficiency is located especially at the level of the emergence of the optical nerve. This circulatory incapacity which can be bound to transient vascular spasms.

In this category of glaucoma the magnesium must be used (19).

Several herbal extracts can also be very indicated : the extract of Vaccinium Myrtillus, Ginkgo Biloba.

A triterpene named Forskolin alleging of Coleus Forskoliin applied topically to the eye would reduce very significantly the intraocular pressure and this by the activation of the adenylyl cyclase enzyme that activates  production of cyclic cAMP and would reduce the entry of aqueous humor and thus to lower the intraocular pressure.(20)

So in summary of preliminary studies...

Chronic Open Angle Glaucoma protocol

  • GCAO : 2 caps (Association of R alpha lipoic acid, Vaccinium Myrtillus , Ginkgo biloba)
  • AC500 : 2 caps constituing the intake in vitamin C
  • FKL : 2 caps for the intake of Forskolin

and in complement ...

Regarding the acute angle-closure glaucoma

This is the most urgent ophthalmological where the visual prognosis may be damaged, if  not properly treated very fast.

The glaucoma usually occurs in patients predisposed with an angle between the iris and cornea is too narrow so that here too there is an obstacle, but not by the same mechanism as in open-angle glaucoma, the free movement of aqueous humor.

The problem is that this blockage occurs suddenly and the pressure rises very quickly in the eye compressing therefore very strongly and very quickly the optic nerve.

ISo there are very intense pain, deep, often associated with nausea and vomiting and loss of vision is rough and very important.

The first medical treatment consists to decrease the pressure by diuretics and eyedrops putting the iris in miosis to reopen the closed iridocorneal angle and when the tonus returned to normal and the state allows it: surgery to prevent recurrence: the surgeon, laser small holes in the iris to facilitate the passage of aqueous.
