Question Macular Hemorrhage

Just saw an optometrist and he said I have 3 hemorrhages in the macular area of my eye. I went because I was having a hard time seeing out of my right eye; there was a cloud right in the center of my vision. My brother was diagnosed with ocular melenoma and my mother has macular degeneration, so needless to say I was concerned. The doctor is setting up an appointment with a specialist, but I wanted to see what I could find out about this before I see him. The optomitrist suggested that I take a multivitamin with lutein. Could I have prevented this if I had been taking lutein in the first place?

Re: Macular Hemorrhage

I am no Dr., but have had an ERM and surgery so did a great deal of research. From what I learned it is doubtful you would have prevented it with taking Lutein but it does help. Also, eat fresh Kale and spinach cooked/steamed several times a week...these are your best "natural" ways of helping your vision. I also take a tablespoon of Barleans Flaxoil 2x a day to help lubricate the eye (also good for skin, etc.)

Good luck , and get several Dr. opinions if they want you to do surgery or anything you might have doubts about. Research as much as you can on forums too.
