If you've got glaucoma, there's a good chance you take eyedrops every day. But it's easy to forget to use them. You've got to remember to fill your prescription every month and to carry the eyedrops with you when you go out. Plus, glaucoma eyedrops are expensive. They have side effects, including redness, irritation, and blurry vision. Some eyedrops can even slow your heart rate or interact with your other medications. Even when you remember to take them, it's difficult to avoid missing the eye completely or blinking them out. No wonder some studies show glaucoma patients fail to use their prescribed eyedrops half of the time! Dr. Paul Krawitz, a Board Certified Glaucoma Specialist uses a cool, painless laser light treatment that takes only one minute to perform. And the CoolLaser SLT has been shown in several scientific studies to be just as effective as eyedrop therapy. Most insurance companies cover the CoolLaser SLT treatment. It's painless and safe for people with Diabetes and Heart Disease -- even for people with pacemakers and defibrillators. The CoolLaser SLT doesn't burn tissue, so it can be repeated whenever necessary. Best of all, you can resume your full activities immediately afterward. ------- Dr. Paul Krawitz, President and Founder Vitamin Science, Inc.
