Ten Essentials is a template for complete health maintenance, health restoration, and the prevention of disease in any part of the body. You will learn about methods that have been used for decades but have been spurned by established medicine: approaches your doctor will never mention. At the same time, you know that these techniques have been thoroughly researched and are being used with great success by a medical doctor who used conventional methods for many years before designing his own innovative program for his patients. As he says on his weekly radio show, Dr. Kondrot's mission is, "To help you overcome your vision loss." Ten Essentials, along with his previous two books on natural eye care methods, lays it all out in a user-friendly, non jargon way.

Dr. Kondrot has written a comprehensive book that everyone should read to better understand how to protect his or her vision. As an optometrist who has practiced for over 30 years, I have used light therapy, nutrition, Qigong, vision therapy and microcurrent stimulation; all of these work to improve vision and function. The eyes cannot be isolated from the rest of the body and must be considered a part of the whole person. Take Dr. Kondrot's teachings to heart and you will find you can maintain good vision throughout your life. Don't wait until you have a vision problem. If you have a vision problem already, get this book and follow the advice. It is a must read.

Thank you for giving me your wisdom and experience, tempered by your critical thinking, in this book. You have put this wealth of information and resource material into a logical, responsible and highly useful format. I am looking forward to the cookbook and am happy to know you love to fiddle in the kitchen, as well as with your violin. It was my pleasure to attend a Mark O'Conner's performance in Austin. Thank you, again.
If you have eye problems, please don't surrender yourself to allowing "normal disease progression" while your eye doctor watches. The suggestions in this book are clear, straightforward, logical, and, in my experience, effective. I can assure you that even if your health challenges are not in your eyes, the suggestions in this book will go very far to assisting your body to heal. Remember, whatever helps any cell in your body to recover will be of assistance to every other cell since your body is an integrated whole.
I could go on and on about different healing modalities, but it's better now that you hear it from Dr Kondrot. Enjoy your journey back to health!

Dr. Edward Kondrot is a messenger of hope. He truly embodies the ideal of first do no harm. His careful explanations of the ten essentials to eye health serve as a powerful introduction and reinforcement to those who choose this road less traveled. I found this book to be fascinating. I am grateful beyond words to have this visionary doctor give me a huge measure of control over the gift of sight."
Since relocating to the Phoenix area in the summer of 2006, I have consulted with and been treated by Dr. Kondrot for age related macular degeneration and cataracts in both eyes. Both of these conditions are continually improving, as is my eyesight, both functionally and in acuity, by following the lifestyle changes and therapies Dr. Kondrot espouses. This, his latest book, is a cornucopia of great information on eye health and the treatments available to reverse eye problems. As with most successful therapies, the patient needs to accept responsibility for needed lifestyle changes which Dr. Kondrot has detailed in this book.
We need to educate ourselves and our eye doctors! This very readable book is a good start. Get this eye-opening book into the hands of as many people as possible and especially those treating our eyes and those training our doctors. Continue studying and writing about the research being done here and in other countries.
As a registered nurse I have seen the long-term problems and side effects that go along with treating symptoms rather than the underlying causes of disease. This book is for anyone who wants to take control of their health and their vision by addressing the processes that lead to macular degeneration along with finding out what critical steps need to be taken to improve their sight and to reverse their AMD.
Ten Essentials to Save Your Vision discusses many factors that have a bearing on sight and functional vision. Not only does this book give information on how to regain sight after injury or disease, it also gives valuable information on how to stay healthy. It treats the person as a whole and not segmented in parts.

Thank you for the opportunity to review this exciting book. Dr. Kondrot's down to earth ability to explain even the more difficult concepts makes the book easy to read. Several items that caught my "eye" were zinc deficiency, postural deficiency syndrome and how 7 of 12 cranial nerves are related to the eyes. Dr Kondrot says. "We all have a personal Grizzly Bear." Regardless of one's eye condition, Dr. Kondrot's primary concern is "to convince you (and me) to invest in (our) health. It is (our) most important asset."

Written in a conversational, breezy, easily understood style, Dr. Kondrot has packed this book with essential information and advice. This is an essential read for those who desire to maintain or improve their eye and vision health. He includes chapters on a variety of modalities readers can incorporate to improve their vision, from nutrition and supplements to microcurrent and stem cell therapy. Definitely a must read!
Everyone with eyes needs to read this book. It provides insight into the essentials of sight. Not only does it include information not available from a local optometrist, but the size of the print makes it easy to read. Read, study, take appropriate action, and celebrate continued clear vision, courtesy of Dr. Kondrot.

Dr Kondrot has written a book that can be an integrative primer to just about any organ system in the body including the eyes. It is a basic "Handbook for Healthy Living" as well as a very exacting and common sense therapy for eye diseases. It should be required reading for all students in traditional medical schools, all students in American high school and college and for anyone who wants a guidebook on how to live a healthy and complete life. I wholeheartedly recommend that YOU read it.
