Hear a man’s story about how he regained his sight
A RETIRED optometrist, who regained some of his sight after taking supplements, will be holding a drop-in session at a local library to share his story.
Harry Marsland, from Oundle, lost his sight after he was diagnosed with agerelated macular degeneration (AMD). He regained his vision in his left eye following years of deteriorating eyesight after starting to take supplements of meso-zeaxanthin, a yellow pigment in marigold petals.
The pigment is normally produced in the eye to absorb damaging blue light but the eyes of AMD sufferers stop producing it.
Mr Marsland will be available during a drop-in and chat session to talk about AMD and his discoveries of a cure at Oundle Library, in Glapthorn Road, Oundle, from 10am to 12.30pm on June 16.
For more information, call the library on 01832 272584.
