FSM does not have anything to do with cataracts.

Anyone who tells you that FSM will help in any way with cataracts is lying to you.

I have also reviewed the data on outback vision and can safely say, in my professional opinion, that it is a scam.

Neither FSM or outback vision will do anything to maintain, improve or impact your vision at all. They sure will not treat any ocular diseases nor deal with cataracts.

I hope this makes sense to you.

I realize that this was not the answer you were hoping to hear but it would be unfair to you and unprofessional of me were I provide you with anything less than truthful and honest information.

Surely, you prefer that I tell the truth rather than what you wish to hear. Because it reflects very poorly on me unless you press one of the top three feedback choices, keep this in mind when rating my answer and please do not punish me for being honest. I understand that this may not be easy to hear, and I empathize.

Even though my answer was not quite what you were hoping for, please understand that my priority was to provide you with the most honest information. With that in consideration, I hope that you found my answer useful. Please click the excellent feedback button so that I can receive credit for my efforts.
