Homemade Eye Drops

Homemade Eye Drops


researchers in the us have developed a newdrug that can be delivered directly into the eye via an eye dropper to shrink down anddissolve cataracts. cataracts is the most common cause of blindnessin humans. affecting tens of millions of people worldwide,cataracts cause the lens of the eye to become progressively cloudy, and when left untreated,can lead to total blindness.


Homemade Eye Drops, scientists arenĂ¢€™t entirely sure what causescataracts, but most cases are related to age, with the us national eye institute reportingthat by the age of 80, more than half of all americans either have a cataract, or havehad cataract surgery. today around 32.4 million people around theworld are blind, and 90 percent of them live


in developing countries. more than half ofthese cases were caused by cataracts. currently the only treatment for cataracteyes is the surgical removal of cataractous lenses. the surgical procedure to remove acataract is very simple and safe, but many communities in developing countries do nothave access to the money or facilities to perform it, which means blindness is inevitablefor the vast majority of patients so, having an eye drop as an alternative tosurgery would make an incredible difference. the new drug is based on a naturally-occurringsteroid called lanosterol. the researchers tested their lanosterol-basedeye drops with rabbits and dogs, with positive results. the next step for them is, to findabout how lanosterol is curing the cataract,


and then start using them in humans. the researchersbelieve that it can happen within next year itself, because they are not expecting anyissue as lanosterol is produced by our body itself.
