Research on OPC and Retinopathy



RETINOPATHY

Retinopathy is especially a problem for diabetics. These patients suffer greatly from increased capillary permeability, not only in the eyes but also in the rest of the body. The vascular wall and eye lens of a diabetic are especially aggravated due to the nature of the disease. This has its influence in particular upon deteriorating eyesight.1



19782 – The effects of 100mg of OPC per day were measured on one hundred and forty-seven retinopathy patients. The researchers concluded that OPC acts as a “trump card” in the treatment of all cases of exudations linked to ischemia that are of a diabetic, arteriosclerotic, inflammatory, degenerative and myopic nature.2



19813 – The effects of OPC were investigated on twenty-six retinopathy patients. Over thirty-five to one-hundred-forty-seven days (average 51 days), they were treated with 100mg of OPC per day. The research concluded that, especially in cases of developing diabetic retinopathy, treatment with OPC indisputably has favourable effect, in particular with micro aneurisms and exudates.3



19824 – Thirty retinopathy patients were observed. The patients suffered from micro-aneurisms, haemorrhages, exudations and neo- vascularisation after capillary hypoxia. The dosage administered was 50mg three times per day. The results were (again) positive. In eighty percent of the cases it was possible to stabilise retinopathic lesions.4
