A new invention fixes eyesight without surgery


>>>WELCOME BACK, IT’S SAFE TO SAY THAT ALL PARENTS WANT TO SET THEIR KIDS UP FOR SUCCESS, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO THEIR HEALTH. THE AUTHOR OF FREEDOM, THE SMART PARENTS GUIDE TO HELP YOUR CHILD SEE FOR LIFE. DR. MARK PAGE. THANKS FOR JOINING US .>>THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME.>>WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO WRITE THIS BOOK?>>IN THE LAST 40 YEARS THE NUMBER OF KIDS NEARSIGHTED HAS GONE UP OVER 60% AND RESEARCH SHOWS THAT BEING NEAR SIDED CAN BE AS DANGEROUS TO THE EYES AS SMOKING IS TO THE HEART. THE STRONGER THE GLASSES THE HIGHER THE RISK OF GOING BLIND. WHEN I WAS 12 YEARS OLD I LEARNED MY GRANDMOTHER WAS GOING BLIND SO WENT TO VISIT HER IN THE NURSING HOME, AND MY BROTHER SAID, SHE DOESN’T KNOW WHAT YOU LOOK LIKE, MY MOTHER SAID, SHE JUST DOESN’T KNOW YOUR FEATURE PPS THAT INSPIRED ME TO BE AN EYE DOCTOR. AND PEOPLE COME IN TO SEE ME WITH A PRESCRIPTION, THEY COULD SEE CLEAR. AND KIDS IN A YEAR COULDN’T SEE. WE HAVE TO MAKE THEM STRONGER. SO KEPT MAKING THE GLASSES STRONGER, SO IS THAT INCREASED DAMAGE LATER IN THE LIFE. WE KIND OF FIGURED OUT TECHNOLOGY TO SLOW IT DOWN.>>IT’S VERY COOL TECHNOLOGY AND WE’LL GET TO WHAT THAT IS SPECIFICALLY IN A MINUTE. YOU’VE SEEN MANY CASES THE KIDS ARE NOT THE BEST AT ARTICULATING WHAT PROBLEMS THEY’RE HAVING. WHAT SHOULD PARENTS KNOW TO GET A CHECKUP?>>ONE OF THE THINGS IS ARE THEY STARTING TO SQUINT. WATCH TV OR SEE THE MOVIES OR IF THEY’RE IN SCHOOL AND THE TEACHER NOTICES THEY’RE SQUINTING, THAT’S A BIG FACTOR. AUTOMATED ONE, YOU CAN — ANOTHER ONE YOU CAN SEE THEIR EYES CROSSING, AND ANOTHER ONE IS THEY’RE SO CLOSE TO THE TV, SIT BACK HERE ON THE COUCH, THEY CAN’T SEE IT FROM BACK THERE.>>A SIGN OF A BIG PROBLEM AND WE’RE TALKING ABOUT NEARSIGHTEDNESS, IS THAT THE SAME AS MIOPIA?>>IT IS, YOU CAN SEE UP CLOSE BUT NOT FAR AWAY.>>WHY IS IT WE SHOULD TAKE THAT SERIOUSLY?>>WHEN WE’RE GETTING NEARSIGHTED THE EYE ITSELF IS GETTING LONGER. SO THE RETINA THAT LINES THE INSIDE OF THE EYE IS STRETCHING, AND IT STRETCHES TOO FAR IT CAN COME APART. THAT CAN CAUSE A DETACHED RETINA AND IN OTHER CASES IT CAN START BLEEDING.>>SO WE’VE SORT OF BEEN TALKING ABOUT THE SEGMENT THAT’S COMING UP, YOU CALL IT THE BRACES FOR THE EYES. WHAT IS IT SPECIFICALLY THAT YOU REFER TO AS THE BRACES FOR THE EYES?>>IT’S WHAT WE CALL THE INVISALENS. BUT IT ALLOWS THE EYE TO CHANGE SHAPE. IT’S SIMILAR TO A CONTACT LENS BUT KIDS PUT IT ON AND GO TO SLEEP. WHILE THEY’RE SLEEPING THE SURFACE OF THE EYE IS 70% WATER, SO IT CAN CHANGE THE SHAPE OF THE EYE. THEY WAKE UP AND REMOVE IT, OKAY, I CAN SEE. SO THE TV, THE BOARD AT SCHOOL, MOVIES ALL THAT IS BACK IN FOCUS, BUT BECAUSE THE WAY THE EYE IS RESHAPED IT’S LIKE A TREATMENT RING, THAT CAN HELP STABILIZE THE PROGRESSION AND SLOW IT DOWN, AND IN SOME CASES COMPLETELY STOP IT FROM GETTING WORSE.>>THIS IS SOMETHING THE KIDS OR PARENTS CAN TAKE OFF AND PUT IN THEMSELVES?>>YES, WE HAVE SOME PATIENTS 5 YEARS OF AGE. THEIR PRESCRIPTION IS ALREADY A MINUS 6 POWER. WE KNOW THE RISK OF DAMAGE LATER ON IS SEVERE.>>IS THIS A LONG TERM FIX LIKE SURGERY OR NEED SOMETHING ELSE DOWN THE LINE?>>IT REQUIRES A THERAPY, BUT THE SURGERY YOU HAVE TO BE 18 YEARS OF AGE. MOST KIDS BY THAT AGE THEIR PRESCRIPTION IS SO HIGH THE RISK IS THERE. WE WANT TO GIVE SOME THERAPY NOW TO PREVENT THAT AS THEY GET OLDER.>>IT’S A GREAT WAY TO PREVENT FUTURE PROBLEMS, IF PEOPLE WANT TO LEARN MORE ABOUT IT, IF THEY WANT TO GET THE TREATMENT, HOW EASY IS IT TO GET IT RIGHT NOW?>>THERE ARE ONLY A FEW DOCTORS IN THE COUNTRY PERFORMING IT. IT’S A COMPLEX PROCESS. AND INVOLVES A BIG INVESTMENT IN EQUIPMENT, TECHNOLOGY, AND TIME. A LOT OF DOCTORS GET THEM GLASSES AND GET THEM OUT OF HERE. AND MORE IN HERE. I REALIZED BECAUSE MY GRANDMA AND DAD, THERE’S A FAMILY CONNECTION I WANT TO TRY TO GIVE SOMETHING BACK. CAN WE DO SOMETHING TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS.>>PEOPLE CAN GET YOUR BOOK, WHAT IS IT THAT PEOPLE BY PICKING THIS UP, WHAT WILL THEY GET OUT OF IT.>>THERE’S OTHER STRATEGIES AND BEHAVIORS THAT PARENTS CAN HELP WITH THE CHILDREN. THEY DID ONE STUDY WITH THIRD GRADERS THAT DIDN’T WEAR GLASSES. THE ONE CHILD THAT SPENT AT LEAST 12 HOURS A WEEK OUTSIDE, HAD A LESS RISK OF NEEDING GLASSES. WE HAVE OTHER INFORMATION AND RESEARCH IN THERE TO HELP PARENTS UNDERSTAND THAT BETTER AS WELL.>>LIKE I SAY, PARENTING DOESN’T COME WITH A GUIDE BOOK. TAKING CARE OF YOUR KID AND HEALTH DOESN’T EITHER. BUT THIS HELPS THE PARENTS GO THE EXTRA STEP. I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR JOINING US.>>THANK YOU.>>HERE’S A SPECIAL OFFER FOR THE NEXT 19 CALLERS.
