    Good morning Dr. Sharma. My mother is 91 years old and for past 6 months she is complaining of seeing dust around her. She also has dementia for past 8 to 10 years .

    Doctors have diagnosed it as hard cataract requiring surgery under general anaesthesia which they also say is risky at her stage. She has been healthy till now.

  4. Rasna Bedi says:

    Hello Dr- Sharma,

    I have sub-capsular anterior cataract in intermediate stage. It is increasing aggressively. In Nov 2018, my vision was normal 20/20 with glasses. In February 2019, I developed a small boil between my eyelashes for which I used antibiotic drops. After that my Cataract started with blurry vision and has advanced so fast, that my vision is now 20/80 with my glasses. I use to think there is a debris in my eye causing blurriness..

    My cataract surgery is scheduled on 22nd August, 2019. Please advise highest and quickest potency medication and drops that can restore my vision atleast 25% till then so that I can forgo my cataract surgery. I am already blind in my left eye and wear an Occular prosthetic. I lost this eye when I was 23 years old. I am now 51 years old and have vision in only one eye and would like to heal the cataract and restore my vision without surgery.

    Thanks and Best Regards,
    Rasna Bedi

  5. Hello Dr .SharmaI am Amy , I need a consultation for mu cataract in my right eye,

  6. June Nies says:

    My eye doctor says I have cataracts the type that go all around my eye. I am experiencing dim vision compared to my normal. In artificial lighting, I can see but I hate the cloudiness. I study and read a lot. I wear blue blocker glasses when on the computer most of the time. I tried various remedies but I am not seeing the help I’d like. Sepia, nux and zinc. Ruta grav 30c and now I am wondering if a lower dose like 6c is better. Now I see your article and wondering When I read your suggestions for cataracts (above article). #1 or #2 seem like good solutions. I need help knowing what dose and how often. I normally do not have floaters, or black specks, I do not experience photophobia in the morning but my bedroom is on the northwest side of the house; nor do I notice it out in the open air. It is usually in a building with artificial lighting or lots of windows. My eyes do feel fatigued when reading my Homeopathy books.

    • I am just wondering why you do not reply to any of the questions. These people seek your help and you ignore them. How is anyone to believe anything you say.

        It would be helpful if those with success stories would leave a comment on their experience and what they used. I haven’t read any success stories.

  7. Steve Kirby says:

    Hello Dr Sharma,
    I am a 55 year old male. I am nearsighted & have a cataract in my right eye causing blurred vision, with no other issues.
    Just recently my left eye began to have blurry vision, black floaters & light flashes & my Naturopathic Dr gave me ginkgo biloba & all of those issues have stopped.
    However the ginkgo biloba did not help the cataract in my right eye & since I no longer muscle tested positively to the ginkgo he told me it wouldn’t help my right eye.
    What do you recommend for the cataract in my right eye?
    Thank you for your help!

  9. Sanjay Singh says:

    Hello Dr Sharma,

    I am suffering from an early cataract in my right eye. I was not seeing very well with my right eye , my eye power seems to have changed so went to an eye specialist and he confirmed that a cataract is forming in my eye and is in its early stages (stage 2). Although I still see clearly the colors have slightly dimmed and against light there is a starburst effect or glare. I am 49 years old and this cataract is a bit too early.

    This year has been bad for me. I did a full body check up and I learnt that ghere is a 4mm stone in my right kidney also my a1c showed up at 6.9. However, my fasting and pp were normal after repeated tests. So doctor has not put me on any medicines. I have stopped taking carbs like wheat rice potato and sugar. All this is a cause of great worry for me.

    I have heard that homeopathy can treat and restore lens opacity to clarity.

    Can you please help me with this.

  19. Flora Rudolph says:

    Hello, I have level 2 cataracts (out of 5 levels). My eyes feel blurry and tired. I also have blepharitis so my eyes hurt much of the time. It feels like I can’t quite get through something to see clearly. I am 70 years old and very fit.

    Thank you!

    • Hi, I have had a few chronic problems with my eyes since going through a period of deep stress and sadness. My eyes get very tired I have swellings around the eyes at times that do better for hot compresses.

      I wake with mucous green or yellow at times, so I use Euphrasia to clean with warm boiled water. Then I battle blepharitis and möbium gland dysfunction. My eyes are short sighted and by working on the computer I get tired and really painful itchy and dry eyes like sand inside. The light from computer makes my eyes feel heavy. I have cataracts forming as well. Recently started using homeopathic drops for this and definitely feels better, but the other symptoms come and go for the last three years. It’s debilitating I’ve been to see someone but I’m really just managing the symptoms.

      Let me know if you see an Appropriate series of homeopathy. Thank you
