Methyl B12 and eye disorder

by Ted

I seem to have read somewhere that Methyl B12 is the only effective form of B12 for some kind of eye disorder, but I don't remember the name of the disorder. It seems to be a kind of problem that the eyes have difficulty seeing near objects. Could you tell me what the disorder is?

thank you so much!

Tobacco amblyopia

Tobacco amblyopia is the only eye disorder that I know of that requires the use of methylcobalin in order to resolve. If you don't smoke, that is not the condition that you are suffering from.

Leber's Disease
by: Anonymous

There is an eye disease called Leber's Disease in which patients experience visual degeneration. While B12 therapy isn't a remedy or treatment for the disease it imperative that any B12 therapy relating to other conditions be restricted to metylcobalamin since cyanocobalamin is contraindicated and is know to accelerate the progression of the disease.

Maybe this is the eye disease you were thinking of.
