"Glaucoma Can Be Helped By NeuroCranial Restructuring"

Glaucoma, an increase in the pressure inside the eyeball, is generally controlled with toxic medicated eye-drops. The fear is that blindness will occur if the pressure in the eye gets too high. Every case of glaucoma I have treated in the past five years has improved enough that people either decreased or discontinued their glaucoma medication prescription.

I assume that the improvement in eye pressure occurs from movement of the sphenoid, frontal and maxillary bones that make up the eye socket. The movement of the bones into a more optimal position allows the fluid pressure in the eye to be relieved before the pressure gets too high.

Double vision is a condition in which the person is unable to focus their eyes without tremendous strain. Their comfortable eye position causes them to see two disparate images, hence the name double vision. The ability of the eyes to focus on a single image depends on the muscles of the eye working together.

Double vision occurs when the eyes are unable to aim the visual field at the same image at the same time. When the images cannot superimpose, double vision results. There is no medical treatment of double vision besides prism installation in the glasses (to bend the visual image into an alignment in which the double vision is improved) or surgery for people who have one eye turned in or out.

The muscles of the eye work together in a simple fashion: they have common innervation. The brain sends out one signal, and matching muscles in each eye receive the signal. The muscles contract the same amount (because there is only one muscle contraction command), and normally the eyes move the same distance in the desired direction. But with asymmetrical eye sockets, the eyes move different distances with the same amount of muscle contraction. This makes visual focusing problematic and, in severe situations, it leads to double vision.

The NCR technique addresses this problem by changing the shapes of the orbits of the eyes. As the skull is optimized, the orbits of the eyes achieve their ideal shapes, and the visual focusing mechanism operates as it was designed.

I have had excellent results treating double vision with NCR. In severe cases, though, it could require twenty or thirty treatments to resolve.

Many people with visual problems like near- and far-sightedness will report improvement in their vision with NCR. Athletes report that they are able to see moving objects more clearly. I assume that this is because of the same mechanism I just described for double vision.
