Patients suffering from Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) often experience a myriad of ocular symptoms. These conditions are addressed in my latest book, “Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome: Your Eyes and EDS Updated” and which conditions can be detrimental or which are merely annoying. New information regarding dry eyes in EDS patients is released. This book follows the widely popular book “The Driscoll Theory” and serves as a continuation to the book “Your Eyes and EDS – Exploring the Ocular Effects of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome”.
“Until recently, dry eye treatment was approached as an “eye problem” — with topical therapies (which were only marginally effective). One aspect of evaluation that was not previously considered was the role of the autonomic nervous system. New research by Genetic Disease Investigators, LLC (Dr. Diana Driscoll, President) revealed a poorly functioning parasympathetic nervous system as the heart of the problem for many patients. By addressing the true underlying problem, many autonomic symptoms are corrected — including tear production.”
“Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome: Your Eyes and EDS Updated” provides insight to EDS patients on how this diagnosis can affect the eyes. If you are suffering from EDS, this book is a must-read! Get your digital copy today.
