I have been diagnosed with glaucoma and my pressure was border 20 and above. I have been put on 3 different medications. The first one lowed the pressure but caused dizzeniess. The second one caused my eyes to turn tomatoe red. The most recent I have only tried once. I was informed about Vitamin C by my sister. What I had to lose is my sight but I decided to try it. I took the Vitamin C before my next office visit. The doctor examined my eye and said my presure was 16/17 and that the new medication is working. I didn't tell him that I had not used any eye medication in 2 months and 10 days. I had been taking Vitamin 1000 mg per day. I do not plan to stop, as a matter of fact I am going to start taking more 2000 per day. 1000 in the morning and 1000 in the evening.

I have suffered from iritis at least once a year since 1989. I'm a 46-year-old male from Sweden. I've always been interested in alternative medicine and finally when my last bout came, just after Christmas last year, I came to think of using vitamin C instead of the usual cortisone prescriptions offered by the doctor.
Well, I started out by 4 g calcium ascorbate dissolved in a glass of water every morning. The pain was relieved but after a few hours I felt the pain again, so I took another 2g for every 2-3 hour during the day. Before going to bed I took a dose of 4g.
So my daily consumption was about 18-20 g/day. This costs only about 1$. After about 3 weeks I started to lower the dose gradually. And if I remember correct I was down to 10 g/day after 5 weeks. After that I have been taking 4g of C every day divided into 4 doses.
Still no bout.
