In one study Silymarin suppressed TNF-alpha activation and blocked oxidative stress. We know that TNF alpha plays a role in glaucoma, as does oxidative stress.

Bernstein himself states that when his blood glocose was not under control he "suffered night blindness, balooning of the blood vessels in the eyes, macular edema and early cataracts".
