Q. In 2003 I started taking CoQ10 and flaxseed oil capsules. Five months later my vision improved, and within the year I stopped using glasses completely.
I wore glasses for 40 years, bifocals for 15 of those. At one time my far vision was 20/200. My vision is now 20/20 and I read without glasses. My astigmatism has disappeared. At age 62 I'm delighted to have regained my vision. Of course, I still take flaxseed oil daily.
A. Your experience is remarkable and inexplicable. We found one study suggesting that flaxseed oil might be helpful in reversing inflammation in children’s eyes (Ophthalmology, Dec. 2007), but nothing to parallel your story.
