With both modern medicine and technology progressing at such a high rate, it would be no surprise to be if we found a new cure or reversal to blindness. Although there are many different causes and types of blindness, a retired optician named Harry Marsland claims he has cured himself from one type called AMD. AMD stands for Age-related macular degeneration which is a common blindness in people over the age of 60. It causes a blindness in the center of the eye ""Wet" AMD occurs when abnormal blood vessel growth leads to the destruction of the eye's light-sensitive (photoreceptor) cells. "Dry" AMD occurs when the photoreceptors atrophy without blood vessel damage." The retired doctor tried almost everything from laser surgery to all types of supplements and treatments but nothing worked. One day he received a flyer, at a conference about AMD, about a new supplement which contained "marigold extract meso-zeaxanthin, as well as the spinach derivative lutein and the corn derivative zeaxanthin." Marsland had tried the other two ingredients in the supplement, lutein and zeaxanthin, both recommended by the U.S. National Institutes of Health but had no effect for him. With few choices left Marsland decided to try it and bought a years supply and to his surprise he was cured! Harry Marsland had this to say:
"I now know, professionally, that I have recovered almost completely from the effects of the dry AMD in my left eye," Marsland said. "I am the first person to have such good fortune. I have recovered 95 per cent of the sight in my left eye which is miraculous, considering that at one point I was literally blind in the dark."
