Hear a man’s story about how he re­gained his sight

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

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.
