Pets and IOP

 Pets and glaucoma

My son recently asked me to cat sit for his three felines.  I discovered that every time I sat down for my relaxation practice, one of the cats immediately sat on my lap.  My son points out that his cats always sense and are attracted to the peace of his Yoga and meditation practice. Has anyone seen a correlation between their “pet love” and lower IOP?

Dear Dave,
If I may, what are your thoughts with regard to the attached study which appeared in the July 2008 issue of Molecular Vision?  It purports that a proprietary combination of bilberry and pine bark extracts in a 2:1 ratio successfully lowered IOP by 3 mm Hg in pre-Glaucoma subjects after three months.
