Eye - Window to Health - Part 3 - Video Available

All credit and glory to Dr. Trempe...

Drs Trempe and Lewis 2016

In this webinar we discussed the 3 major eye pathologies and their relationship with chronic disease.

  • Cataracts

  • Macular Degeneration

  • Glaucoma

Here you will see what Dr. Carter and I are looking for in an eye test to determine where you lie on the "pathology" (disease) continuum.

What you will learn:


  • There are more than one type of cataract - one that predicts cardiovascular disease risk and one that predicts neurodegenerative disease risk.

  • People with cataracts, regardless of the type, have higher early mortality rates compared to people without any cataracts.

  • 16 Global studies show the connection between cataracts and early mortality,

Macular Degeneration

  • Macular degeneration, like cataracts, predict chronic diseases and early mortality.

  • There are 2 main forms "dry" and "wet" age-related macular degeneration.

  • In reality, "dry" AMD is the formation of vascular plaques, and

  • the "wet" form is actually a vulnerable vascular plaque (the deadly type).

  • The "injection" treatment used by the standard of care for macular degeneration increases early death rates and adverse events like hospitalizations. And, the treatment contributes very little to visual improvement.


  • Glaucoma is Alzheimer's disease of the eye.

  • Alzheimer's is glaucoma of the brain.

  • Glaucoma precedes Alzheimer's by at least 10 years - when properly evaluated.

  • Not everyone with Alzheimer's had glaucoma first.

  • Most people with glaucoma will progress to Alzheimer's given enough time.

  • Glaucoma is also an indication of early mortality.

  • OCT, used to measure glaucoma, is superior in resolution, accuracy, and precision compared to MRI.
