Earlier this month (May, 2023) a large scale study was published in the npj Vaccines journal, which is part of the Nature.com Portfolio, and looked at the “Risk assessment of retinal vascular occlusion after COVID-19 vaccination.”
According to the study:
“Retinal vein occlusion (RVO) is the second most prevalent cause of visual loss related to retinal vascular diseases, after diabetic retinopathy. RVO is related to thromboembolism caused by vessel compression, vasospasm, or degeneration of vascular walls.”
The study included 7,318,437 people from the TriNetX network divided into vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals, and they concluded that “individuals with COVID-19 vaccination had a higher risk of all forms of retinal vascular occlusion in 2 years after vaccination, with an overall hazard ratio of 2.19 (95% confidence interval 2.00–2.39).”
This is one of the first large scale studies published that examined COVID-19 vaccination side effects which are continuing more than 2 years following a COVID-19 injection.
The cumulative incidence of retinal vascular occlusion was significantly higher in the vaccinated cohort compared to the unvaccinated cohort, 2 years and 12 weeks after vaccination. The risk of retinal vascular occlusion significantly increased during the first 2 weeks after vaccination and persisted for 12 weeks.
Additionally, individuals with first and second dose of BNT162b2 and mRNA-1273 had significantly increased risk of retinal vascular occlusion 2 years following vaccination, while no disparity was detected between brand and dose of vaccines.
This large multicenter study strengthens the findings of previous cases. Retinal vascular occlusion may not be a coincidental finding after COVID-19 vaccination. (Source.)
The study included people who received messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccines (BNT162b2 [Pfizer-BioNTech] and mRNA-1273 [Moderna]), adjuvanted recombinant protein vaccines (Novavax), and adenoviral vector vaccines (ChAdOx1-S vaccine [Oxford/AstraZeneca] and Ad26.COV2.S [Janssen-Johnson&Johnson]).
A Health Impact News subscriber from Australia alerted us to a recent news story about a 21-year-old man who became permanently blind following a COVID vaccine which destroyed his career. The government is refusing to compensate him for his injuries, despite the testimony from two renowned eye surgeons who agreed that his condition was caused by the Moderna vaccine.
‘My life is on hold’: Young tradie blinded after Moderna vaccine denied compensation
A young NSW tradie left permanently blind after receiving the Covid vaccine has been denied compensation by the federal government, despite two experts agreeing his condition was likely caused by the jab.
Cody Hose-Ross, 21, had his bricklayer apprenticeship and a budding footy career snatched away when he lost total vision in his right eye and partial vision in his left, shortly after receiving two doses of the Moderna vaccine in October and November 2021.
“Maybe four days later I woke up and, you know when your eyes have to adjust when you first wake up? I was finding everything hard to see, I had to wait to get some vision in my eyes,” he said.
“I was like, what the hell is going on?”
At first, the Port Stephens man figured he had just gotten an infection or something in his eye and “didn’t think anything of it”.
“Then I was at work and my boss was like, ‘Grab that f**king tool, it’s right f**king there!’” he said.
“I was like, ‘I honestly can’t see it.’ He said, ‘Are you blind?’ That’s when it first sort of shook me. I lost my apprenticeship — I was up to my last year as well, would have been fully qualified. Plus I had a contract to go and play footy in Sydney. I was committing to it, then bang, I lost my eyesight.”
Two renowned eye surgeons, Professor Peter McCluskey from the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in Sydney and Dr Peter Davies from Hunter Eye Surgeons in Newcastle, both agreed that Mr Hose-Ross’ condition was caused by the Moderna vaccine. (Full article.)
The U.S. Government’s vaccine adverse events reporting system (VAERS) database shows that there was an astounding 19,665% increase in retinal disorders following the COVID-19 experimental shots compared to all FDA-approved vaccines for the past 32 years.
I searched the database for the following post-vaccine symptoms:
- Retinal artery embolism
- Retinal artery occlusion
- Retinal artery thrombosis
- Retinal degeneration
- Retinal detachment
- Retinal disorder
- Retinal haemorrhage
- Retinal injury
- Retinal ischaemia
- Retinal tear
- Retinal vascular disorder
- Retinal vascular occlusion
- Retinal vascular thrombosis
- Retinal vasculitis
- Retinal vein occlusion
- Retinal vein thrombosis
This is certainly NOT an exhaustive list of eye disorders contained in VAERS, but just a sampling.
You can see the age breakdown here. While the highest age group by percentage was in the 65-79 years age group at 14%, it was surprising to see that the second highest percentage was in the 50-59 years age group at 13%.
By contrast, using the same symptoms for retinal disorders, the search returned only 327 cases for all non-COVID vaccines for the past 32+ years for these same retinal disorders. (Source.)
That’s an average of just over 10 cases per year, as compared to 2,020 cases recorded in 2021 following COVID-19 injections, an incredible increase of 19,665%.
