Thanks Eye Doc for detailed reiteration of what my eye doctors (both my optometrist and an opthomologist, I had seen) had told me. And, thanks for the well wishes, too. No, I have had no more symptoms, since Thursday night. Am now on double doses of the supplement. And, I suppose I should also mention that the supplement also contains Zeaxanthin, too.
I had recently posted here about the latest exam I had, and how amazed my doc is as to the health of my optic nerves considering all that they have been thru. Have to wonder if it's not the Zith that's triggering some sort of inflammation, too. In two weeks, I should have my latest series of lab test results, including, a very sensitive test for CPn infection, back. It may show something, it may not.
JimmyLegs, you are quite welcome. It was just a timely subject for me. And, yes, I wish there were/are more studies being done on this, too! That you've even looked for any, is a lot more than I've had a chance to do. Should use my University Library's subscriptions to do searches on Lutein and Zeaxanthin. But, it just seems enough, as of late, to keep up with my own academics, right now.
While my husband doesn't have MS or ED (thankfully!), he has just started these supplements, too. Having witnessed all that I've been thru, especially the latest. And, already knowing what studies have actually been done, proving the macular health benefits.
