As we age, we all become increasingly susceptible to seeing a recurring parade of
spots or streaks appear before our eyes. If your vision is affected by this problem,
chances are you’ve been told that you will just need to learn to live with it—but
it doesn’t have to be this way. In Healing Floaters and Detachments Naturally,
authors Dr. Marc Grossman and Michael Edson tell you what you can do to regain
a clearer view of the world around you—one free of those annoying little objects
that drift in and out of your field of vision.
This book is divided into four parts. Parts One and Two discuss floaters and detachments, respectively, explaining their risk factors and possible treatments, which may include both conventional methods and complementary approaches such as supplementation, lifestyle changes, and traditional Chinese medicine. Part Three then details the common drugs that can lead to floaters and detachments, while Part Four describes the importance of a proper diet in relation to alleviating and avoiding these troublesome issues.
If you are among those people who have been told to learn to accept these visual nuisances as an unavoidable part of life, Healing Floaters and Detachments Naturally can help you to put these distractions out of sight—and out of mind.
