A Natural Approach To Health
Living With a Corneal Ulcer
I had a question the other day about a corneal ulcer.
Two of the most complex organs of your body, your eyes provide you with instant visual feedback of the world around you.
Your eyeball is a sphere about 1″ in diameter and is covered by a tough outer layer called the sclera, or “white of the eye.”
Underneath the sclera is the middle layer of your eye, the choroid, which contains the blood vessels serving your eye.
The front of your eye is covered by a transparent membrane called the cornea.
Behind the cornea is a fluid-filled chamber called the anterior chamber.
Behind that is the pigmented iris, and in the center of your iris is the pupil.
Your eye also contains 2 important fluids.
On the outside of your eyeball are 6 muscles to move your eyes.
What we think of as the simple act of seeing is actually a complex, multistep process occurring continuously and at breathtaking speed.
Light enters your eye through your pupil, which changes size depending on the amount of light entering it.
As light enters your eye, it’s focused by the lens.
The lens becomes fatter or flatter depending on the distance to what you’re focusing on.
This image is sent by your optic nerve to your brain, which interprets the image.
One major contributor to eye trouble is poor diet, specifically the denatured, chemical- and preservative-laden foods most Americans eat daily.
A deficiency of just one vitamin can lead to many eye problems.
Supplementation with the correct vitamins and minerals can help prevent or correct eye trouble.
If your cornea – the membrane covering the front of your eye – is damaged, your eye becomes inflamed and vulnerable to infection which can result in ulceration.
Damage can happen because of injury, a foreign body in your eye, or excessive or inappropriate wearing of contact lenses.
Infections resulting in ulceration of your cornea can be caused by viruses, bacteria, or fungi.
To deal with a corneal ulcer it’s beneficial to:
*Drink 6-8 cups of purified water daily.
*Include the following in your diet: broccoli, raw cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, green vegetables, squash, sunflower seeds, and watercress.
*Eliminate sugar and white flour from your diet.
*Never use hair dyes containing coal tar on your eyelashes or eyebrows; doing so can cause injury or blindness. Although coal tar dyes are legal, marketing them for eyebrows isn’t.
*Avoid eyestrain and smoke-filled rooms.
*Eliminate toxic cosmetics, eye care, and personal care products.
*Eliminate chlorinated shower/bath water, which could be irritating.
*If you suspect that a corneal ulcer may be developing, consult a physician immediately.
