Default CardioRetinometry - Dr. Bush

A recent report says that optometrist Sydney Bush of Hull, England, has made an historic discovery. He claims that atherosclerosis (hardening of arteries) can be reversed. And his research, which could save millions from heart attack, should have made headlines around the world.

It's been said that the eye is the window to the heart. It's the only part of the body through which doctors can see arteries and veins during an eye examination. This allows doctors to see changes in retinal vessels, the result of aging, hypertension, diabetes and atherosclerosis. And it's been believed for years that blockages in arteries due to cholesterol deposits could not be reversed.

Bush decided to do more than look into the eye. In 1998 he started to use a technique called "CardioRetinometry" at his eye clinic. This instrument takes pictures of the retina, the back part of the eye, that transmits images to the brain. These photos have enabled Bush to observe change in retinal vessels over a course of several years.

CardioRetinometry photos could also pinpoint collections of cholesterol deposits in retinal vessels. Bush states that he could see a fine, white line, similar to a silver wire, running down almost every artery of adults who had high cholesterol.

But a chance encounter occurred that would reshape his thinking about coronary heart disease. While taking photos of the retina, Bush was also prescribing 3,000 to 10,000 milligrams of vitamin C to treat certain eye problems.

To his surprise he discovered that this amount of vitamin C resulted in changes in retinal arteries. Cholesterol deposits decreased in size, arteries became larger and there was increased blood flow to the retina.
