Beyond Carrots

In my book, Beyond Carrots, I tell a brief story about the scariest day of my life. I then talk about eye diseases and how they can be so dramatically influenced by food and lifestyle. Diseases like cataracts, macular degeneration, and dry eye that affect so many people can be positively impacted by the methods discussed in my book. Next, there is a detailed discussion of what to eat and what to avoid. I try to keep things light and cheerful so that Beyond Carrots is anything but boring because I am an anything but boring. I also hit on the lifestyle changes that can impact eye health, from meditation and prayer to simply moving more. 


Beyond Carrots closes with a step-by-step plan for reversing eye disease that follows the steps that I followed when I reversed my own disease in 30 days. If I can reverse my eye disease, then my reader can too.


Meet Dr. Britney Caruso

Dr. Britney Caruso earned her Bachelor of Science in Biology/Pre-Med with cum laude honors at Boston College. She then went on to receive her Doctorate of Optometry from the Illinois College of Optometry. After ten years of practicing optometry, she faced a potentially vision-threatening condition known as peripheral retina vasculitis. Conventional treatments and medications failed to resolve the issue, prompting her to turn to dietary, nutritional, and lifestyle changes. It was through these changes that she successfully addressed her eye problems, motivating her to share her story and deepen her knowledge in the field. As a result, she became one of only three optometrists in the nation to hold Fellowships in Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine and Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine.

With these notable achievements, Dr. Caruso has been invited to speak on a national level on behalf of Luxottica Eye Care/Essilor, the world's leading eyewear manufacturer. Luxottica has recognized her as a Key Opinion Leader. Additionally, she serves as a panelist for CooperVision, where she is part of the Professional Advisory Committee.

On a professional level, Dr. Britney Caruso manages two optometry practices. One of her offices is located within the busiest Target Optical in the nation, the Royal Palm Beach Target Optical. Her other location is well-regarded in the optometric community due to her leadership, resulting in two articles being written about her practice management strategies. The first article, titled "Why Stop at One," was featured in Women in Optometry, while the second, "To the Point: A number of changes in 2017 - from equipment upgrades to hiring - had positive results for one practice," was published in Advanced Ocular Care.

Throughout her career, Dr. Caruso has consistently pursued excellence, and her efforts have not gone unnoticed. She was honored with the 2017 CooperVision Best Practice Award, given to only ten practices nationally based on their innovation, industry leadership, and patient experience. She also received the Rand Eye Institute Spirit Award, which recognizes team members for their enthusiasm and spirit.

Dr. Caruso is deeply committed to her profession and community. She has taken part in a OneSight mission with Luxottica, traveling to Africa, specifically Tanzania, where she volunteered her time to treat nearly 300 people to improve their vision. She has also served as the Past President of the Palm Beach County Optometric Association and is a dedicated member of the Ocular Nutrition Society, an organization with the goal of helping people preserve their vision through proper nutrition.

All of these accomplishments have been driven by a common goal: to help as many people as possible reverse eye diseases and improve their vision.
