BHU researcher finds Dr Basu Eye Hospital’s eye drops effective for cataract cure
New Delhi, 27 March 2023: Dr. Basu Eye Hospital, a leading player in eye cure, announced the results of a retrospective observational study conducted by Prof Yamini of Banaras Hindu University, Uttar Pradesh, on the use of Isotine herbal eye drops – one of the effective remedies for cataract-induced vision impairment. The study, which included 308 cataract patients treated between 2017 to 2019, showed significant improvement in uncorrected distance visual acuity (UDVA) and uncorrected near visual acuity (UNVA) after treatment with Isotine.
During the study, patients were divided into four groups based on the severity of their condition. Group 1 included patients with lower power vision, group 2 had patients with vision up to 6/18, group 3 had vision up to 6/60, and group 4 comprised patients who were blind as per the W.H.O. classification.
The study revealed that the use of Isotine eye drops for up to three months resulted in a significant improvement in the far-sightedness and near-sightedness of the patients. Notably, 91 percent of patients in groups 1 and 2 were able to remove their spectacles, indicating a significant improvement in their vision. Additionally, 47 percent of patients in group 3 experienced a decrease in their glaucoma power, while 61 percent of patients in group 4 regained their eyesight to some extent.
The Isotine herbal eye drops have been clinically used for 36 years with a claim to reverse cataract-induced visual impairment. The results of this observational study show that Isotine probably improved cataract-linked impaired vision for distance and near vision through its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and protease activities, reducing lens-opaqueness, strengthening the ciliary muscle, lens-growth/nutrition supply, and improving retinal sensitivity.
“We are elated to announce the results of this study, which demonstrate the effectiveness of Isotine Herbal Eyedrops in improving the vision of cataract patients,” said Dr. Mahender Singh Basu, Founder of Dr. Basu Eye Hospital. He further added that “Our mission has always been to provide advanced medicinal research to benefit the maximum number of people. The positive results of this study validate our commitment to this mission and the efficacy of Ayurveda in treating eye diseases.”
Prof Yamini, who conducted the study, added, “The results of this observational study are very promising and suggest that Isotine Herbal Eye Drops may be an effective treatment for cataract-induced vision impairment. Moreover, the testing of eye drops at IIT-Bombay has also proven to be a safe and effective treatment for cataract. We hope that this study will encourage further research on the use of Ayurvedic medicine in ophthalmology.”
Dr. Basu Eye Hospital has established a world-class manufacturing unit, Jagat Pharma, to ensure that Isotine Herbal Eyedrops are of the highest quality and authenticity. Isotine eye drops, invented by Dr. M S Basu in 1978, has the ability to treat an extensive range of eye diseases, including some of the most critical ones like immature cataract.
