Shadi Mattar's insight:

I believe that this method does in fact releive stress that can cause damage to certain areas of the eye over time. However, I feel that this theory does not explain damage to certain areas of the such as the retina. In addition, there may not be significant scientific backing to prove that this method is 100% reliable.

I feel that it is very important the the pressure of the eye is taken, preferably by the safe method of eye drops. However, I feel that future advancement will allow optometrists to be able to pinpoint the influxes that occur within the eye without the use of an eye drop. Preferably a sensor.

Shadi Mattar's insight:

I agree that a correlation between the eye and Alzheimer's disease does in fact exist. However, I feel that this correlation lacks significant scientific backing to prove that this relationship is in fact existing. Thus, a cure for Alzheimer's based off of the claim made in this article cannot be substantiated.
