Top 10 Homeopathic Remedies for Eye Problems!

For more info, visit http://www.drshreya.com 

Eyes are the doorway to one’s soul! Eyes reflect mind, eyes reflect psyche, and eyes reflect HEALTH! No wonder homeopathy that caters effectively the ‘mind’ of an individual has lot to offer in problems of eyes. Eye is certainly one of the most delicate organs of the body and therefore, caring for eyes has to be done by an expert homeopath. A homeopath might want to consult an ophthalmologist to rule out certain critical eye problems before proceeding for the treatment. But here one should remember that while treating homeopathically, we should not give much importance to the diagnostic name of the eye problem but its signs and symptoms that point us to the accurate remedy.

There are hoards of homeopathic remedies useful in the treatment of various eye problems. However, one must remember that for constitutional eye problems like cataract, glaucoma, recurrent blepharitis or conjunctivitis, corneal opacities, and/or recurrent styes, one must go for constitutional prescribing after carefully considering the physical, mental, and emotional characteristic of the individual; then only it is possible to impart perfect cure! But one must be acquainted with certain remedies that specifically render beautiful results in varied eye problems so that they can be used for acute prescribing as well.

Here is the list of top 10 homeopathic remedies for eye problems—

-         Inflamed agglutinated eye-lids

  1. How effective is the Homeopathic medicines, what is the success rate, is there any side effects ?

  2. @Board Certified Doc,
    Homeopathic medicine has been found very effective in tackling many chronic and acute ailments affecting mankind. If you see the patient database with an established homeopath, the success rate is very high and consistent. There are very little or no side effects when the homeopathic treatment is offered judiciously by an expert homeopath. Wrong drug selection, unnecessary frequent repetitions, use of very high potencies (when not needed), are some of the reasons behind the side effects. But then that is obvious considering the depth of action of homeopathic remedies.

    1. Hi Doctor,

      I am 32 years old Chartered Accountant. I had never checked my vision, never used any glass or medicine, I also have no disease like BP, Diabetes etc....Since 3-4 months I was feeling headache and blurred vision, so I contacted Dr. Kothari @Bombay Eye Hospital & Research Centre, Babulnath, Mumbai, who said that my left eye has low vision (+6) and right eye is okay and so refused to do anything by saying that nothing can be done. I am very much tensed, I feel problem in reading printed material whereas I can properly read the PC/Computer Screen. I understood I have contrast problem of low vision. Kindly advice, if there is any treatment or medicine in homeopathy... I shall be grateful to you lifetime.

  6. I am using glasses for computer work & that are + 1.25 . Kindly guide me for eye vision improvement. My age is 47.

  7. Well, you can start with eye exercises (called Trataka) and Balasana (both terms you will have to search on google and youtube. These definitely help as supplementary mode of therapy that I often advise to my patients.

    However, much better improvement can be obtained with homeopathic medicines. You can contact any reputed homeopath in your area. Else, we can help you seek homeopathic prescription from us, if you mail your details to contact@drshreya.com.

    Thank you!

  9. Dr. Deshpande,
    I want to know whether there are any homeopathic cure to acute Fibromyalgia where the patient is almost affected in all the eighteen points regarding Fibromyalgia. I need to know this for my sister who is suffering from Fibromyalgia which has been diagnosed about a year and a half ago and the symptoms are gradually aggravating. She is only 25 years old.

  10. @Anonymous- You suffer from nothing but allergic eye problems. For all the related symptoms, you need to take appropriate homeopathic medicines. As an auxiliary regimen, you should wash your eyes with cold water at least 3 to 4 times a day. Some yoga exercises also help eye health. You can write to us at contact@drshreya.com for knowing more.

  11. @Monodip Dutt,
    For acute as well as chronic fibromyalgia, homeopathy can help. Most importantly such tendencies to fibromyalgia can be cured by constitutional homeopathic approach, that is, classical homeopathy. You can write to contact@drshreya.com to know more.
