A homeopathic eye drop called Pleo-MUC (Mucokehl) is designed to increase circulation and reduce congestion in the eye. The drops are aimed at helping dry, irritated eyes. They are indicated for cataracts, glaucoma, dry eye syndrome and conjunctivitis.
Homeopathy uses a dilution of certain substances to counteract a condition or disease. This technique was founded by Samuel Hahnemann in Germany in 1796. Based on the principle of “like cures like,” the substances that cause disease in a healthy person are given in a highly diluted formula to people with the health condition. Only a few molecules, or none, of the original substance are in a homeopathic remedy, but what is left is the energy stamp of the nutrient. When taken by an individual, they help support the body’s natural healing process related to that person’s health issue.
Pleo Muc eye drops are meant to help reduce the effect on the eyes of air pollution, chlorinated water and foreign materials. They address stinging, itching and burning eyes.
Unlike many drops, the Pleo Muc (Mucokehl) eye drops sold by Natural Eye Care are safe to use with contact lenses. They are offered in packages of 10 single vials to reduce the chance of contamination. A drop should be placed in each affected eye 1 to 3 times per day, or as recommended by a healthcare provider. The strength is 5X. The product has not been evaluated by the FDA for either safety or effectiveness.
Anyone who is experiencing discomfort or other symptoms in the eye should consult an ophthalmologist, optometrist or medical doctor promptly. Report to your doctor all supplements and remedies you are taking.
