Some reactions to glaucoma eyedrops . .. .

© What Doctors Don't Tell You (Volume 14, Issue 6)

WDDTY vol 14 no 4 arrived a few days ago and, wonderful surprise, some great help about glaucoma drops! I have been taking for two years a prescription eyedrop called Lumigan (bimatoprost 0.03 per cent), and the pressure has stayed down to between 10 and 14. But all the symptoms you wrote about with latanoprost are the same for bimatoprost - longer eyelashes, changing the colour of the iris, eyelids turning darker brown and also brown now under the eyes (bags), greater sensitivity to light, stinging when being dropped into the eyes, stickiness in the eyes, lids stuck down on awakening.

I also have worsening cataracts, which adds to the blurriness and greater sensitivity to light, but I’ve been told that I may be able to stop the drops afterwards. Otherwise, are there any alternatives to using eyedrops?

On top of all this, I had mercury toxicity from my fillings. In 1994, a hair analysis revealed I had high mercury so, in 1995, I went to a local dentist to replace 13 mercury amalgams with composites. He did not use a rubber dam (the correct protocol) so I swallowed some mercury and then suffered from a range of symptoms (there are a possible 200!).

I’ve tried chelation from a naturopathic doctor for a year now, but I still have most of the symptoms. Then your information on glaucoma came! Can it be that those remaining symptoms, all outlined in your article, are really now from the eyedrops?

It’s such a case of detective research work - doctors don’t know; they haven’t a clue!

I am so grateful to receive your newsletter once more, and thank you in advance for your wonderful help with all your research work. - Renee Brodie, Delta, British Columbia, Canada

WDDTY replies: Yes, the eyedrops could be the culprit, but mercury could also still be in your system. To augment the chelation, important vitamins and minerals to take include free-radical scavengers such as vitamins A, C and E, copper, zinc and manganese, all of which help to clear mercury. Selenium, alginate and pectin help to absorb heavy metals, and zinc counters high levels of lead, mercury and cadmium. All is revealed in The WDDTY Dental Handbook (2000), and there’s ongoing correspondence about this in our weekly Enews broadcast (sign up for free on http://www.wddty.co.uk).
