From Darkness to Light: Song's Journey with Glaucoma and Nutravision



In a world filled with a myriad of responsibilities and unforeseen challenges, it's not uncommon for life to take unexpected turns.


For Song Chia, a dedicated special needs teacher and swim coach, one such twist came in the form of a glaucoma diagnosis at the age of 40.


This is the story of how he overcame the initial shock, embraced a new way of living, and found renewed hope through the Nutravision supplement.



A Passionate Educator and Father


Song, a 47-year-old of Chinese ethnicity originally from Singapore, is not just a teacher by profession; he is also an educator at heart.


His days are filled with teaching special needs students at a local school, coaching swimmers on weekends, and leading Scouts and soccer teams in the evenings.


Beyond his professional life, Song cherishes his role as a father to his two children, aged 17 and 13, and as a loving husband to his wife.


Life had been relatively stable for Song and his family until a routine eye checkup brought everything into question.



An Unexpected Diagnosis


At 40, Song's life took a sudden turn when a routine eye examination led to a glaucoma diagnosis.


“Absolute shock and loss,” is how Song described his initial reaction. The unexpected news weighed heavily on his family, casting a shadow over their lives.


"It was by chance that my condition was discovered during a yearly eye check at the optometrist," Song recalls. "Just when we thought life in Australia was settling, this news sent me and my family into a downward spiral."


The weight of uncertainty loomed large, with endless questions about the future consuming Song’s thoughts.


How long before his vision would deteriorate? What would happen to his job and his responsibilities?


"Everything seemed normal, but every moment, my mind was weighed down by the stress of one day losing my sight." Song Chia


Stress and Worry


Although Song continued his daily routine as a father and teacher, the mental stress of potentially losing his vision gnawed at him.


"Everything seemed normal, but every moment, my mind was weighed down by the stress of one day losing my sight," he shares.


Under the care of a glaucoma specialist, Song was started on eye drops to reduce his eye pressure. The daily application of eye drops proved challenging, given Song's difficulty administering them.


"I dislike taking or applying medication," he says. "It didn't help that my eyes are small, making eye drops even more inconvenient."


"I also underwent laser treatment to relieve the pressure in my eyes," Song explains. 

The thought of further laser treatments and potentially requiring surgery only added to his mental stress.


Though these treatments helped to control his eye pressures, the ongoing deterioration in his visual field test results only increased his worries about the future. 


Song admitted, "It felt like there was no true recovery, just a constant effort to slow the deterioration in my peripheral vision.”

Discovering Nutravision


Song's reluctance towards supplements initially made him skeptical of Nutravision.


"I always believed in a healthy diet, exercise, and reducing screen time," he notes.


However, the further decline in his visual field test results after Covid pushed him to reconsider. After researching the science behind the comprehensive blend of natural plant extracts and vitamins in Nutravision, Song took the plunge.


“I had no other alternative,” Song admits. "There is only one outcome when one is diagnosed with glaucoma, and it’s not bright."



A Positive Impact


After consistently incorporating Nutravision into his daily routine, Song began to experience reduced strain on his eyes, especially during extended periods on the computer, along with improved focus endurance.


But more importantly, recent tests have confirmed a positive turnaround in Song's eye health, with his peripheral vision now displaying signs of stabilisation.


"The numbers speak for themselves," Song comments. "The most recent tests indicate that my condition has stabilised, and in fact, my visual field tests have actually shown an improvement!"


"I am really happy with my recent visual field test results, knowing that Nutravision has played a vital role in preventing further deterioration of my peripheral vision." Song Chia


Now, Song's daily regimen has returned to its usual pattern, but with a newfound sense of assurance and optimism.


"I am really happy with my recent visual field test results, knowing that Nutravision has played a vital role in preventing further deterioration of my peripheral vision," he asserts gratefully.


Integrating Nutravision seamlessly into his morning routine, Song now feels empowered to take proactive steps to preserve his vision for the long term.


"Now, I have renewed hope for the future," he continues, "knowing that by continuing with my prescribed glaucoma treatments and Nutravision, I won't end up losing all my vision at a young age."



A Message for Others


Song’s journey has taught him the value of preserving vision amid the challenges of glaucoma.


"Every effort to protect our sight is worth it, so please prioritise regular eye check-ups and consider incorporating science-backed eye health supplements like Nutravision into your daily routine." Song Chia

"Every effort to protect our sight is worth it," he advises, "so please prioritise regular eye check-ups and consider incorporating science-backed eye health supplements like Nutravision into your daily routine."


Song's story is one of resilience and adaptability. Despite the initial uncertainty, he found a path forward with his ongoing glaucoma treatment and Nutravision, guiding him back to a fulfilling lifestyle.


His journey serves as a reminder of the power of informed choices and proactive care, offering hope to others facing similar challenges.
