I’ve been flying for over 20 years. My usual run is a
Denver departure at 9pm, fly to Billings, on to Cheyenne
and then back to Denver by 5am. I fly a King Air 350.
I love my career and I pride myself on doing the best job
I possibly can.
Last time out, however, I was making lots of little
mistakes. I was cleared for the ILS Runway 35R into
Denver, but I couldn’t pick up ATIS. That’s when I looked
at my radios and noticed I had dialed in the wrong
frequency. I glanced again and dialed in the right
frequency. I continued through my checklist and set my
Radar Altimeter to 5500 feet. I was ready to make my
descent and start my approach. After the outer marker
I glanced at my DH again and noticed that I had set
my Radar Altimeter, 67 feet low. Luckily, I landed safely,
bouncing the wheels just a little.
After a couple more days in the sky I could tell my
eyesight was beginning to deteriorate. I knew I wouldn’t
be able to renew my first class medical if I didn’t do
anything about it. I was really worried and started asking
my peers if there was anything I could do. A co-worker
gave me a bottle of Claroxan™ and told me it would
help me maintain my depth perception. I was skeptical at
first, but tried it anyway. As it turns out, the stuff works
great. The problem is, I ran out and don’t know where to
find more. Have you heard of this Claroxan stuff? Is it
available in the States?

Not only do I know of Claroxan,
it just so happens I take it everyday.
Being a pilot myself, I know that perfect
visual acuity is an asset none of us can
afford to lose. That’s why every pilot
should be protecting their eyesight
before it’s too late.
Claroxan contains ingredients that,
when taken over a period of time, have
been proven beneficial for the eyes.
Among these ingredients are lutein
and zeaxanthin – powerful antioxidants
that have been clinically proven to protect
the retina and macula and, in some cases,
reverse the damaging effects of macular
degeneration. These antioxidants block
damaging UV rays and halt damaging
free radical oxidation in the back of
the eyes. They have also been clinically
proven to decrease the risk of cataracts.
Claroxan also contains bilberry, an
antioxidant known to improve night
vision. Bilberry’s night vision enhancing
effects were first noticed in England in
the early 1940’s. The RAF ordered English
fighter pilots to eat bilberry jam on toast
figuring it would give them an advantage
during night raid missions against the
German Luftwaffe fighters.
Claroxan’s unique proprietary formulation is completely safe, all-natural and
extremely affordable. As far as ordering it,
you can call them toll-free at 877.678.6143,
or go to
www.claroxan.com. I usually
get mine within a week after ordering.
Hope this helps!

CLAROXAN LEADER IN VISION IMPROVEMENT
Sunlight, aging, and diet each cause damage
to the retina and macula, which can lead to a
decline in vision that glasses or contacts can’t
help. If you’ve experienced an increase in
blurriness or have difficulty seeing details at
any range, then you know how valuable
sharp vision can be. What you might not
know is that in the past decade, a flood of
new scientific research has been performed
on natural vision enhancement. This research
suggests that lutein and zeaxanthin may help
maintain your vision, while at the same time
giving you added protection against many
Lutein and zeaxanthin may improve macular
pigment density, which research shows has
amazing effects on vision. By improving
macular pigment density, these carotenoids
may improve normal visual acuity, contrast
sensitivity, and even glare reduction.
People who count on their vision – people
like pilots, hunters, military, and even pro
athletes – trust Claroxan as the best source
available for vision enhancement and protection.
Claroxan is safe, effective, and affordable.
However, people with serious health concerns
should consult a doctor before use.
