Stop Vision Loss Now!: Prevent and Heal Cataracts, Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration, and Other Common Eye Disorders Paperback – Illustrated, August 1, 2017
Enhance your purchase
Losing your eyesight is a frightening thought. Yet, every five seconds someone in the world goes blind. Most causes of visual impairment are caused by age-related diseases such as cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy. Modern medicine has no cure for these conditions. Treatment usually involves managing the symptoms and attempting to slow the progression of the disease. In some cases surgery is an option, but there is always the danger of adverse side effects that can damage the eyes even further. Most chronic progressive eye disorders are considered incurable, hopeless. However, there is a successful treatment. It doesn’t involve surgery, drugs, or invasive medical procedures. All that is needed is a proper diet. The key to this diet is coconut, specifically coconut oil. The author used this method to cure is own glaucoma, something standard medical therapy is unable to do. The coconut based dietary program described in this book has the potential to help prevent and treat many common visual problems including the following: Cataracts Glaucoma Macular degeneration Diabetic retinopathy Dry eye syndrome Sjogren’s syndrome Optic neuritis Irritated eyes Conjunctivitis (pink eye) Stroke Eye disorders related to neurodegenerative disease (Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, MS) Most chronic eye disorders come without warning. No one can tell who will develop a visual handicap as they age. Everybody is at risk. Once the disease is present, treatment is a lifelong process. The best solution is prevention. In this book, you will learn the basic underlying causes for the most common degenerative eye disorders and what you can do to prevent, stop, and even reverse them.

I wouuld give it a million stars if possible, EXCELLENT book/advice. I've start the coconut oil in my eyes and they feel so much better since I stop the eye drops. Bought both the Kindle edition and a book. Now I'll be able to loan the book out to others. Really a good book, thank you to the author. Very easy to read and understand.

Excellent book, Dr. Fife! Once I started reading, I couldn't put it down! Knowing how a Keto diet affects literally every function of the body is priceless. His writing style and ability to explain everything in layman's terms makes understanding the connection between health and diet so much easier to follow. I highly recommend this book as a reference piece that could change or save your life or the life of someone you know. Dr. Fife is one of the most well informed doctors you will ever find on nutrition so it's a no-brainer to purchase and read ALL of Dr. Fife's books.

A little twist on the popular keto diet. Dr. Fife shares his insights into eyesight. His information is very interesting and he is honest about possible results and outcomes. Not mind bending, easy read well worth including it your keto library. He includes good lists to help make better choices. If you're new to keto, this is a good place to start. The title is about vision, but his book is all about better health. I highly recommend this book.

The information in this book has triggered an attempt to follow the suggestions. Already I have improvement in my vision (after about 2+ weeks of using them and I am 80+ year old woman. Not only are these suggestions good for vision, general health and function improves also. A must for anyone with eyes and a body. Mary

Applying coconut oil to the eye to clear up cataracts? I loved this book! Having just visited my ophthalmologist, it made me realize how much she could learn about nutrition and eye health. As soon as I finish the book, guess who is getting it?!

This book gives real and practical ideas about what to do to bring about healing. I loaned the book to my naturopath and we designed a plan for me to follow. Further following his suggestions about diet affecting inflammation, we've "gone keto." I also picked up his ketogenic diet support book which is simple (most on this topic are not) and easy to follow.

Wonderful Book, Packed full of great information if you want to save your eye site. I wish I'd gotten it sooner but it is still a great help even though I'm had to have a cataract surgery already. There is more to our eyes that just the lense.

Incredibly informative bookReviewed in the United Kingdom on February 22, 2019
This book is fantastic. The amount of knowledge he imparts is unbelievable. One of the other reviewers said it was so boring. Ridiculous! Absolutely amazing. I cannot believe how much I didn't know about what was good or bad for your eyes. Buy it!! you will never regret it and could save your eyes from a number of nasty things as well as things to do to help your brain. Fantastic!! Thank you. Sally.

A MUST-READ FOR SIGHT PRESERVATION!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on March 12, 2016
Lots of excellent news & ideas for eye-problem sufferers! I have a macular hole in one eye & PVD in the other one, as well as other eye problems. I have 'seen' results from the advice on coconut oil & water: my surgery to repair the hole has been cancelled owing to the fact that the hole has shrunk! Still haven't finished reading it but I'm very impressed & highly recommend reading this book :)

I do not recommend.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on February 22, 2018
Most of the book is very technical, and the interesting and helpful section is limited to one chapter at the end and is rushed. Most of the information can be found with internet searches. Save your money.

Bruce Fife has written another excellent informative book, which is an excellent guide for looking after your sight the natural way, and with added bonus it comes in large print.
