so seeing eye floaters can be very
bothersome and you may know them as those drifting little spots or cobwebs
in your vision and in this video I’m going to be reviewing some new research
on a natural eye floaters remedy let’s take a look hello and welcome this is

reviewing some new research on a natural cure for eye floaters and no I am NOT
just holding on to this pineapple just for fun there’s actually reason for it
and we’ll get to that soon also if you actually want to read the research
yourself I’ll include a link to the article along with some extra a health
tip educational videos and resources in the description below so chances are if
you’re watching this video you have already experienced eye floaters in some
form you know them as those little drifting spots in your vision and they
can be really annoying for some people or some people they are just tiny little
black or white spots that drift across your vision when looking at something
like a computer screen or maybe when you’re going outside and looking up at a
gray sky or something like that you might see those little drifting spots
for other people they look like giant cobwebs and for some people who have
actually developed what is called a posterior vitreous detachment or a PVD
then these little floaters can actually be quite large and very bothersome and
can even obstruct vision now I’m not going to go too much into exactly what
these floaters are I have covered that in other videos and I’ll include a link
to the entire video playlist about floaters up here in the YouTube card up
above as well as the description below if you want to go back and check that
out now floaters are so extremely common it’s rare that I’ll ever have a day in
the eye clinic where I won’t see a floater at least discussed floaters in
some fashion historically we haven’t really had good ways to get rid of
floaters other than what’s called a vitrectomy where they removed the gel
inside the eye a YAG laser vitriolysis where we can actually use a laser to zap
away the floaters inside the eye or the ever-famous just waiting and monitoring
and hoping the floaters resolve on their own and guess for most people after they
first start experiencing floaters they do usually neuro adapt and just kind of
get used to these floaters in their eyes but I have actually had a lot
people asked me if there was some form of a natural cure for floaters whether
it could be a supplement they could take or something they could change in their
diet to actually help these floaters resolved and honestly I have never
really had a good answer for this until more recently there’s a cool study I
want to share in April of 2019 a pilot study was published in the Journal of
American science describing the pharmalogic vitrolysis of vitreous
floaters with a three-month supplement of pineapple. YUM, but wait
pineapple well the whole idea of this study was based on that pineapple
actually has a protease or enzyme called bromelain and if you’re an author of
this study or you think you know a lot about this substance then please go
ahead and comment the section below because I’m not exactly sure how to say
this correctly but bromelain is supposed to be an enzyme that is believed to help
really dissolve the aggregating collagen that creates these floaters inside the
vitreous gel inside the eye in the first place so in this research what do they
do and what do they find out in this study they took 388 participants and
separated them into two different branches of the study I do want to point
out that 388 individuals in this study is a pretty small sample size in really
large scale studies that a lot of medical real facts and treatment is
based off of our from large-scale repeatable studies but for this one at
least they did do a really good job of vetting which participants or in the
study these were actually individuals who actually had to have a dilated eye
exam they observed that they had at least had one or multiple different
floaters these individuals developed these floaters and had been stable for
at least six months and they didn’t develop them due to trauma or surgery
and they didn’t have any other real serious medical issues such as diabetes
high blood pressure or some form of uveitis or inflammation in their eye not
only did they record the presence of floaters through a dilated eye exam with
an eye care professional but they actually measured them objectively with
a bee scan ultrasound of the eye as well as with an optical coherence tomography
or an OCT which actually allows us to actually physically see the separation
of the vitreous interface from the retina inside the eye it’s pretty cool
now remember there are two branches to this study in the first branch so they
actually took a hundred and ninety people and they separated them in
two individual groups a hundred and twenty and these people only had one
single floater inside the eye while the other 70 participants had at least
multiple or at least two different floaters inside the eyes then they took
these two groups and they actually fed them slices of pineapple and the
pineapple had to be measured out to be about a hundred and 120 grams of
pineapple and they actually fed them two slices every single day after lunch for
90 days and so after three months they then actually measured where all the
floaters were and these were the results they actually found significant
improvement in both groups this first group with only one floor about 120
people that actually decreased to only 35 individuals with floaters after the
three months and then in the group with multiple floaters actually went from
about 70 individual cases down to only about 19 cases honestly I think that’s
pretty incredible now get this because I find this part to
be very interesting in the second branch of the study they actually took 198
individuals really about 66 people into three different groups first group was
only a low amount of pineapple where they served just one slice of
pineapple a day this medium group of pineapple eaters which was two slices of
pineapple a day and then a large amount of pineapple served which was three such
as a pineapple a day again 66 people and each one of these groups the no real
count of how many Florida’s they had at least one again each slice of pineapple
is about 100-120 grams and they served them every single day for 3 months and
the results were as follows and the first group was people only taking one
slice of pineapple a day for 3 months after the 3 month period they actually
had a 55 percent improvement so 55 percent of the cases of those 66
individuals actually had improvement in their floaters the people who are taking
2 slices of pineapple a day had about a 2/3 of cases in proof and the people
taking 3 slices of pineapple a day 75% of the cases of those 66 individuals
actually had improvement and what’s special about this branch of the study
is that it showed that it was dose dependent meaning that individuals who
were being treated with more pineapple actually ultimately had better
resolution of their floaters now certainly the study was not perfect even
the authors addressed some of the faults in their
own study I know when I was reading the study I actually had some questions
about some of the math that they did overall I do find that their actual
methods as well as their intro and discussion section of the actual study
was very informative and again if you were really science he or you just want
to know more about this stuff I again have included that link in the
description below now wait before you start running off to
the grocery store and start loading your cart full of loads and loads of
pineapples as a few safety things we really should talk about now remember
this whole study was really about testing whether pineapple and the enzyme
bromelain which is inside the pineapple actually helps reduce floaters but it’s
important to remember that bromelain has never been actually F proven to be
effective at treating any disease and has not been approved by the US FDA for
treatment of any sort of disorder now if you read the research they actually did
address that bromelain is available in a powder cream and tablet form however for
this study they specifically used pineapple and they cut it horizontally
because bromelain is actually included more in the stem as well as the flesh of
the pineapple now I’m not sure if you’ve ever eaten pineapple before but most of
the time whenever I see pineapple made the core is usually not eaten in fact
it’s usually sliced off and removed but here in the study they said to cut it
horizontally which honestly I have no idea what that means if I’m cutting it
this way or am I supposed to be cutting it this way I’m not really sure also a
hundred grams forgive me for being from the US but usually people don’t have any
way to measure actual grams in the kitchen unless there may be a pharmacist
or perhaps you do because you’re just a big fan of the great british bacon
competition either way I actually did measure it out about 100 grams is equal
to about a half a cup of pineapple but hey if you actually have any tips for me
and how it kind of pineapple go ahead and comment in the section below let me
know because I need some help if you think there’s somebody who’s gonna go
out now and eat lots of pineapple every day do keep in mind that some people are
allergic to bromelain and pineapple in general certainly something you don’t
want to be doing all the time I do also believe that pineapple is very
acidic can can actually affect your taste buds as well as other problems
with your gums and teeth also keep in mind if you are a diabetic or very
sensitive to high sugar foods pineapple has a lot of sugar in it and that’s
actually one of the reasons why in the study they limited the maximum amount of
pineapple to be eaten was only three pieces a day but again this study was
not perfect I do hope however that this opens up more avenues for
research with more participants and that maybe will at one point have a
medication or at least some sort of actual cure for floaters from Mother
Nature so last question of the day have you
ever noticed if your floaters actually improved somehow do you think it was
just due to random chance or was it something in your diet go ahead and
comment and connect in a section below and thanks for watching if you got value

  • Aaaah, the scientific unit about half a cup.
    Americans do seem silly, when not wanting to understand the metrics system. I'm no expert in American appliances, but doesn't most scales have a converter nowadays?

  • Doc, you're a fast talker and did a very good job here. To slice horizontally would be the stand it on its bottom and slice from right to left. I did have floaters but they just went away. At this point I'm close to age 70 and my biggest eye problem is what local optometrists say are characteristics of older eyes. "Automatic" color which is Blue/Gray on web pages disappears. Walk into a department store with florescent lighting and it looks like fog. I bought a new computer monitor and it's so bright I finally found a program (free) to adjust it. I reduce brightness from 100 to 10% and contrast from 100 to 40%. Are there any suggestions from you for this? If yes, please produce a video to address it. You can earn a good living caring for geriatric eyes. sn

  • Taking 500mg Bromelain in capsule form (NOW brand) twice a day…I think I'm seeing a slight improvement after only four days! Will update soon. I'm a bad case!

  • Stop begging for sub and like clicks. Hate when every video I click on begs for the same thing. Thumbs down when I hear that

  • I'm gonna try. Thank you doc. I have floaters since april and it's I learned to live with them but… I'm ready to say good bye, lol

  • I'm wondering if canned pineapple slices would work… fresh isn't available here (Ireland ) all year round.. 🤔
    And whats the problem with grams ? Americans really don't have scales with dual readings ?? 🙄😂


  • because of these enzymes eating pine apple causes serious pain to my tongue like severe burn, maybe I'll loose all my teeth, before loosing my floaters 🙂

  • I have Floaters too. I just tried VITROLENTA Eye Drops for 3 drops a day (and other efforts too).

    And guess what… after 2-3 months It just work!!!

    Not All Floaters are gone, but one little dense Floaters that disrupting my vision just gone.

    I try to keep using VITROLENTA (and other efforts like massage, vitamin, etc.), and I hope there are others Floaters will be gone too.

  • I'm the 389th 'participant'. Yes, I like ripe pineapples, and I noticed that there are no more floaters disturbing me.

  • The best pharmacology is no pharmacology. You're getting old. Be thankful you're on the right side of the dirt. They're annoying, but, you'll be a'ight.

  • 50 years ago my father taught me some eye exercises he said I would need when I get older. I am glad I remembered them. Great info Dr., thanks.

  • You are one brave doc, putting out there things which aren't in pill form "approved by the FDA (Fraud and Deception Administration)". If they could have gotten the stranglehold a few hundred years ago, lime wouldn't be "FDA approved" for treating scurvey.

  • Hydration hydration hydration… At times playing a sport example hockey, cycling, working out hard at gym and getting a little blurred vision and or floaters would Dramatically decrease or disappear altogether. So keep hydrating

  • I've had multiple floaters for a few years now so this is interesting news. Unfortunately for me, I HATE pineapple.

  • What pinapples did they eat? Like those unripe rubbish pineapple as in
    the video? Was there no placebo group? Well, i guess very soon, there
    will be a drug with bromeline in it.

  • Did not sift thru 1K comments to see if this was brought up yet but…
    What about pineapple juice?
    I'm sure they pulp and squeeze the entire fruit, core and all when making juice. Might that be a compact way of getting bromaline without having to eat whole fruit?

  • This is quite a coincidence finding this. I have had multiple floaters in both eyes for many years. I've been to the eye hospital on two occasions,but nothing serious was found. I also have flashing lights,especially when going from a light environment into a dark. Recently while staring onto a blank white wall I realised my floaters had all but disappeared. I did some research on line and found reference to the pineapple cure. Up to a few weeks ago,my local Tesco was selling a whole fresh pineapple peeled and cored for £1.75. Now I like fresh pineapple but never been overly keen to peel and core them but this buy suited me down to the ground. I was buying a couple a week . This lasted for about 10 weeks as they stopped selling them. Did this cure my floaters?

  • and here I thought the floaters that were not random shapes were red blood cells casting that biconcave disc onto the retina. If these are what is in the eye, as floaters, is this different than the pieces of vitreous?

  • these link are not working on my country here in The Philippines, please fix this ASAP. Thank you

  • I eat Pineapple a lot but i still have floaters , i think the only way to get rid of them is the new eye treatment they have developed that will problem cost 10,000 an eye

  • I trust the FDA as far as I can throw 'em.
    If there were a mundane cure for cancer I would bet good money that they would want to destroy/suppress it.
    Not a single good person in that place.

  • WTF??????? I'm ALLERGIC to pineapple! IT BURNS ON CONTACT!!! how can anyone eat this devil fruit!? TRY AGAIN!!! PS: it's spelled bromelain, genius! And I've had this as supplement for the past 20+ years and it ONLY helps allergies. Doesn't do a damn thing for floaters. PEOPLE: don't waste your time! PS: And SPARE ME THE SUBSCRIBE SPEECH until END OF VID, capsice?! I don't know who you are or what goods you peddle so no sub at 3 secs of start and, for that reason,THUMBS DOWN FROM ME!

  • How much were you paid by Monsanto, Del Monte and Chiquita Bananeapple for this hogwash of a vid? No one eats raw pineapple it has to be bought in sugary cups. Aren't pineapples one of the most GMO fruits anyway!?

  • PS: pomme de pin (pine apples) are acorns in French. Ananas is pineapples. English is a wrongly made-up weirdo language!

  • Anyone noticed that he said to cut it horizontally, but then he held his ananas sideways, so the motion he made turned out to actually be a vertical cut!? O_o WEIRDO!

  • Do you think this could work with visual snow? Is there any remedy for visual snow? It's when the vision is covered in 'static'.

  • When I first started getting eye floaters I took – Ginkgo biloba, and my ignorant eye doctor who happened to also be surgical eye doctor, told me that the supplement did nothing. I told her that the tiny spores of eye floater seemed to have disappeared, she laughed and told me the vitreous humor was a closed cavity that there would be no way of anything to get in or get out of the vitreous humor.

  • Hello Folks and Doc …. I love this presentation but I have had eye issues before and use raw unpasteurised honey dropped in my eyes and have seen much improvement …. I implore all to try it for a few months coz I have had great results ……………. God Bless one and All…

  • Anyone around here who healed with 🍍. I have this problem for a year and to be honest, life seems very difficult to live when you have eyes floaters; If anyone can answer me please

  • Maybe I'll give it a try. Am visiting Phuket for two months and there is a local restaurant where I've had about 2/3 cup of Pineapple as part of their fruit dish: $1.32USD equivalent.

  • I have floaters, disgusting ones. Soooo I'm going to eat 1/4 pineapple a day for 30 days and let you guys know what's up.

  • Yeah, that's what we need, more meds to replace all that crazy nature stuff. Um, you don't really need a warning label on a pineapple. Plus, would be nice if you included OTHER foods that have bromelain. Mainstream stupidity, zeroing in on one food, one component of a food… Nature is about change, variety. That in itself is healing. Taking meds, not healthy, not truly healing. Google other foods with bromelain. Yogurt, kiwi, sauerkraut…

  • We raise pineapples here in Hawaii. The season is about two to three months each year. During the period I would say I consume large amounts of pineapple, three slices or more per day. I was aware that the bromelian will reduce inflammation but was unaware it could remove eye floaters. I have some very large floaters in my left eye. Over the past three years they have improved some. Now I wonder how much effect the pineapple had on this. Thank you for the information. Despite the great information in this video I found it difficult to listen too. May I suggest you could deliver all the information with 50% of the verbiage. It would be easier to listen too. Aloha

  • I'm on day 7 of eating 3 raw pieces a day, had clarity last night but quickly went away, I am noticing way more more floater movement and I would say at this moment the floaters are getting worse, but I feel its because they may be breaking up. My floater was stuck right in my line of vision, Feb 27th is my 90 day mark.
