On Sky News today there was another link below the article I was reading about a new revolutionary treatment for most every eye problem, ever.
It is a very long watch, and though the video on the page appears to be hosted on Youtube, there is no way to click through to Youtube, where there might be a way to jump ahead.
The Outback Vision Protocol explains why Australian Aboriginals have vision four times better than us. Given that the “Protocol” invented is 3 times more effective than might be achieved with the original outback ingredients, I reckon that this means 12 times better vision than any human has ever achieved??
Watch this soon, the “Optometry Industry” may “take it down” at any moment!
This obviously disproves the physics “lie” that any telescope or other optical system has a resolving power limited by a very simple formula (1.22 *Wavelength/Objective Diameter). The Airy Rayleigh equation is used to design telescopes the world over. Why didn’t those silly astrophysicists just drink a couple of Outback smoothies a day!!?
I am joking here – they only claim to be able to restore eyesight to “perfect” 20/20 vision. But If I have better than that, (OK with my glasses) how can the Aboriginal have 4 times better? And how can 20/20 be perfect when indigenous Australians can beat you every time?
I was interested in more information, and had my wallet out, especially as I was being offered a one off 10 dollar discount..
These daily smoothie blends can also shrink a myopic eye back to its correct size, enlarge a hyperopic eye and reshape an astigmatic eye. Quite how this works was not fully explained, well not explained at all. But it must work – read the testimonials.
The discoverer of this super smoothie is disgusted by the “Optometry industry”, as once again all Optometrists know the truth, and we are all hiding it from “you”. If we are hiding it, it is because we were trained that there was nothing to hide….
Someone came in, and I put my wallet away, but I reckon I would still be interested in what the pdf downloads were.
I think that there is NO WAY that you will be able to throw away your eyeglasses, even if they are just for reading after the suggested 21 days, and there is no way it could have fixed his wife’s 6 months to blindness condition, unless she was misdiagnosed.
However the antioxidants he mentions on the video are the components in most of the ocular health vitamins which optometrists would often recommend, or mention to patients. These anti oxidants do seem to have a protective effect on the retinal, especially macular health. But antioxidants may prevent AMD, they cannot reverse new blood vessel growth in Wet AMD. But prevention is better than cure.
But if you are myopic (short sighted) your eyeballs grew too big. If you are hyperopic (too small). Amazing that these smoothies can have the opposite effect on different eyes!
But a good diet is important to retinal health, so (perhaps) still, 27 bucks to make healthy smoothies is not so much of a rip off.
But I didn’t pay, and do not know the rest of the ingredients. But we do know what foods are high in antioxidants, and we all know that they are good for us…
I have come up with a new business plan, and I might sell it as a new preventative treatment for Glaucoma. I recently knocked up a new website, so another one is worth a shot. €49.99? Nah €149.99.
Only kidding, it would be unprofessional to try to do that. Yes – Optometrists do consider themselves professionals, but no-one else seems to, and they are easy to knock. Easier to knock than all of the faked Nasa moon landings, and the earth being curved – I had a quiet day today, and once you see a conspiracy theory or ten, you do think…
But it doesn’t make it true!
To all our clients and friends – Merry Christmas!
We hope you have a great festive season – some good rest, good cheer and satisfying relaxation.
We look forward to seeing you in the New Year!
From the staff at McLeish Optometrists- Ian, Neasa, Sandra and Victoria.
(alphabetical order there, by the way!)
Have a Very Merry Christmas!
And let us all hope we have a fabulous 2018!
Ho Ho Ho!
As one particular client (let’s call him Jerry) has found out (more than once), Santa cannot deliver contact lenses – he too busy to stop by our suppliers on Christmas Eve! So – please do not try to order lenses on Christmas Eve for Christmas delivery!
All the other “couriers” are also very busy at this time of year, and the suppliers are often closed until the new year, even before Santa’s trip around the world. No other couriers seem to deliver on Christmas day, so to order on Christmas Eve is a little too late, even for Santa!
This is not the “last call” to order contacts for the holidays, but if you might need some, please order them – they can sit until 2018 no worries, if you don’t need them. We do not want to see you stuck!
We have not yet been advised of our last order times from the various suppliers, but we all by now know that Christmas is coming?
(I have got absolutely nothing bought, planned or done as yet – who am I to talk!?)
Well, the staff might get a bit of a break, maybe, but I personally seem to be running a taxi delivery service for my kids over the weekend!
Back to work as usual on Tuesday.
We hope you all have a great weekend.
Christmas comes once a year, but it always seems to catch a few of us unawares – me included!
Every year we have a client or two who leaves their contact lens order too late to be delivered before the holidays. We do try to order lenses preemptively for our regular clients, but there are those who wear lenses infrequently, but more over the party season.
Don’t let it be you- call us today!
