  3. Tina Forster says:

    Dear Sir,

    I am considering homeopathic remedies for cataract, one eye has already been operated on but i was advised to try carnosine for the other. I have since started looking at homeopathic remedies.

    If I use one homeopathic remedy, am I correct in thinking I need to avoid all pharmaceutical remedies?

    Thank you for your time.

  6. Why do you mention Natrum Muriaticum in the intro, but do not elaborate upon it, yet bring up remedies below that you don’t mention at the top? Bad cut and paste job? I’ve been told I’m developing cataracts (I’m 71) and to expect to need surgery in a year, but would rather use homeopathy and anything else I can to avoid the need. And can Pulsatilla and/or China be used at the same time? Thank you. Please don’t add to your database; I’m already on it.

  10. Abhijit Chowdhury says:

    Dear Sir,
    I have been suffering from bleeding of arteries inside the right eye. Present treatment is placing “ozurdex” dexamethasone implants in the eye. This implant is timed for 3 months and works well till the implant is active. I am able to get almost clear vision during this time.

    However, my blood pressure is not always in control i.e. 150 to 170 (I am 57 years old), the above problem repeats. Also, I am unable to quit smoking completely and thus BP is a little high. I am taking Telmisartan 40 tab once daily for BP. Thud, I have undergone the above procedure for the 3rd time in past 7 months.

    Due to above, I have started to develop cataract in the same eye. It is told that when such repeated process is done, the patient usually develops cataract. My cataract is in initial stage and I am able to manage clear vision by new set of lenses.

    Doctor says, it is not necessary to go for cataract surgery immediately. He would like to watch it for some time.

    Therefore I request for a homeopathy remedy to at least control growth of the cataract.

    Request you for your kind advise.

    Best regards,
    Abhijit Chowdhury

  14. M F Kite says:

    For a number of years I used the homeopathic combination in a product from Natural Ophthalmics: “Cataract Eye Drops with Cineraria.” I experienced improvement until it suddenly was removed from the market. I was told it had to do with the container, but they are using a similar container for another eye drop, so I question that. I would very much like to find this combination once again. Thank you.

    The ingredients were:
    Cineraria maritima HPUS 5X
    Euphrasia HPUS 6X
    Causticum HPUS 6X
    Silicea HPUS 9X
    Calcarea phosphorica HPUS 10X

  17. Barbara Lindberg says:

    Hi Dr. Sharma, I developed cataracts behind the lenses by my late 30s. I am 62.5 years of age and am unable to increase my glasses any better. Reading small print becomes blurry and my eyes fatigue quickly.
    The first optometrist asked if I had taken steroids such as inhalers and prednisone. Yes I did. I had severe allergies from food and inhalants which developed into asthma. I was on allergy shots for 12 years without improvement.
    I would love to avoid surgery and use homeopathic remedies. I believe one remedy you listed may be right for me. Thanks for your information and any suggestions.
