Eye Pressure Research -- and Sexual Energy

Submitted by dave on Sun, 06/01/2008 - 2:00pm

One of the FitEyes.com members asked a question about the changes in intraocular pressure after sex in a comment to an earlier post on my blog about the potential relationship between masturbation and eye pressure. I'm going to give you an estimate of the intraocular pressure changes after sexual activity off the top of my head.

When I have asthma attacks the ER admits me if [my oximetry readings] dip below 85 at all. I do go under 90% which could be one of times when the hemoglobin is unable to furnish plenty of oxygen. Maybe better management of my asthma would help.


I have taken an interest in monitoring oximetry while doing other IOP research, including while doing pranayama, Serene Impulse and many of the other techniques I'm testing. I don't have anything extremely interesting to report yet, however. UPDATE: see Eye Pressure Miracle.

Ocufors - Is it Ayurvedic?

Submitted by dave on Sat, 05/24/2008 - 2:02pm

In 2006 I wrote about the news that Ocufors, a plant-based pharmaceutical product for glaucoma, had received regulatory approval from India's equivalent of the US FDA (the Drugs Controller General of India - DCGI).

Ocufors is a natural, plant-derived product that has been found to be 30% more effective at reducing intraocular pressure than existing glaucoma drugs, according to its manufacturer.

Ancient Ayurvedic Herb Lowers Intraocular Pressure by Reducing Aqueous Inflow

Makandi (Coleus forskholii) is one of the most broadly useful herbs of Ayurveda, but until recently it was not well-known in the West. So wide-ranging are its therapeutic applications that it has been called a pharmacopaea in a single plant.

Gain Better Eyesight by Expanding Your Heart

If you allow yourself to see things through the eyes of another, you will be rewarded by better sight.

Just in case that statement sounds a little too quixotic, let me frame this in terms of intraocular pressure and glaucoma and tell you what myself and others are finding by carefully measuring our eye pressure with professional quality tonometers.

Does Masturbation Cause Blindness?

Dr. Michael Ashworth says, "The myths that masturbation leads to blindness, or causes you to grow hair on the palms of your hands, or will cause someone to be impotent later in life, or leads to mental illness, have all been debunked many times; but they seem to have a life of their own and crop up again and again."

optic nerve death

Submitted by andrea on Mon, 05/12/2008 - 10:02am

When a part or even the entire optic nerve is dead, I know it does not promote vision. Does theis death grow like when a limb had gangrene? Is the Nerve 'dead' so it should be rejected by the body? I think it must mean something different from most tissue dead for optic nerves to be determined dead. Does anyone know or have a good hypothesis?


Mistake Of The Intellect

Submitted by dave on Fri, 04/25/2008 - 11:42am

Experts in the Ayurvedic medical system tell us that the source of all disease and suffering is "the mistake of the intellect" ("pragyaparadh" in Sanskrit). What is "the mistake of the intellect" and how does it relate to health, vision and intraocular pressure?

Dr. Ram Kant Mishra, an Ayurvedic physician, says the mistake of the intellect "occurs when individuals -- or even single cells -- 'forget' their connection with the wholeness of life and believe themselves to be isolated entities."
