Use of Homeopathic Cataract Medicine after Cataract OperationDear Homeopathic Doctor:
I have cataracts in both eyes, but left is worse. I would like to consider homeopathic cataract medicines but I have a question/concern.
I am started on homeopathic course and if I eventually get cataract operation in left eye (because it is severe)can I continue to use (for my right eye):
1. orally taken cataract medicine (liquid drop formulations for cataract)
2. cataract eye drops in right eye (cineraria maritima formulations)
3. any other medicines specially formulated for catarcts generally (e.g liquid or tabs of calc flour, gelesium, ruta, causticum,nat mur etc).
ARE THERE ANY POTENTIAL HARMFUL EFFECTS OF THESE CATARACT FORMULATIONS IF THEY ARE TAKEN WITH ONE NEWLY INSTALLED ARTIFICIAL LENS IN LEFT EYE BUT MILD/MODERATE CATARACTS IN RIGHT EYE?
Really appreciate your response as I am at a juncture where I must decide to have the left eye operation soon.
thank you for your kind attention, Sam Mithani, Los Angeles, CA

Homoeopathy doesn't have any 'cataract' medicine unless it is specifically chosen for you by a homoeopath based on your individual symptoms. Has that been done?
If it is an over-the-counter prescription (made on the basis of the name of your problem instead of a proper case being taken) then chances are it will fail - almost 100% chance. Homoeopathy works very poorly when done this way.
On the other hand, a medicine selected once a full case is taken, including your history and any other symptoms in (apparently) unrelated parts of the body, has a much better chance of curing you.
Homoeopathy does not support topical use of medicine. We direct our attention to the underlying cause of your disease, and so all our medicines are given internally, and are based on the whole picture of your health, since our philosophy is based on the idea that there is only one disease at one time present in any person's life - and this is a disordered vital energy. One person, one disease, which manifests itself in different locations of the body.
So the real question, is who do you have prescribing for you. Homoeopathy is really only as successful as the practitioner is skilled.
