It appears that a daily supplement of a Liposomal Vitamin C product has relieved me of an acute optical migraine affliction. My family physician came to this diagnoses after I had an episode of total vision loss in my right eye for a period that I estimate was twenty minutes before vision was lost. As you can imagine this was very disturbing.
This condition first began, I'm estimating 15 to 20 years ago but at a chronic level slowly becoming more aggravating. At least during the last 5 or more years I have mentioned the problem during my annual checkup with my Ophthalmologist, each time with assurance something like "everyone has floaters". The frequency continued to slowly escalate until I was having a period, (5 to 15 minutes) of darkened vision slowly drifting down in a portion of the right eye 4 or 5 times in a week. The left eye is seldom affected at all.
In the last year or two I began noticing something happening inside my head 3 to 5 seconds before I began to see the onset of any vision interference. The only thing I can think of to describe this is it feels like an instant flutter of a tiny flying creature wings. After all the Doppler, MRI, x-Ray, Sonogram tests and my description of this feeling it was my personal physician who came to what I believe is the accurate diagnosis.
It was about one year ago I started the Liposomal Vitamin C with a 6 months supply. By the time I ran out of this batch I was free of any episodes. For whatever reason I did not obtain another supply at the end of six months. After about 2 months I began having an occasional episode and on the day I reordered more of the supplement I had one severe enough that it affected the left eye as well. I'm into supplementing daily now for four months and have had no more occurrences for at least two months.
Now, I have no clue as to whether it is the vitamin C or the additional Chlorine or phosphorus that the liver has to work with or not. But I thought if you knew about my experience with what you have produced through your research and production it might help you see other possibilities.
I am so grateful to have found what appears to be an effective resolution to an aggravating, even terrifying affliction, If there are more details you would like to know you may contact me at the address above or by internet.
