Does the doctor have any recommendations for other brands of cataract drugs that can reduce cataracts in the eye without side effects? r nThank you for your help. r n r nGreetings, r n r nYuda
Hello good morning Yuda.
Baineiting eye drops contain 0.8mg Pirenoxine sodium, 3mg Methylparaben, and 1.5 mg Ethylparaben. Pirenoxine sodium can indeed be used as a cataract treatment. Pirenoxine sodium works by preventing oxidative reactions in the lens thus preventing lens cloudiness and thus preventing cataract formation. Thus, pirenoxine sodium is more useful for preventing cataracts or preventing the worsening of cataracts that have occurred (for example, cataracts that are at an early stage in old age, cataracts of mild degrees due to diabetes, or congenital cataracts (cataracts congenital). Pirenoxine sodium is a the contents / substances that are administered must be under the supervision of the examining doctor, thus the administration of drugs containing this substance must be recommended by the doctor who examined you directly You need to note that not all types and stages of cataracts can be treated with drugs containing Pirenoxine sodium Treatment of cataracts can vary depending on the degree of severity, from eye drops to cataract surgery.
Then regarding Methylparaben and Ethylparaben, are chemical substances that are included in the group of preservatives that can be found in various products, such as in cosmetic products and medicines, including eye drops. Long-term use of these drugs, even in small amounts, can cause damage to the lining of the eye, one of which is the cornea.
Thus, we do not recommend the use of these drops without you first checking directly with an ophthalmologist. We suggest that you check with an ophthalmologist to make sure that your condition is indeed cataract and the treatment you need is according to the degree of cataract severity you are experiencing. Immediately do an examination if you experience eye pain, a feeling of lumpy eye sensation, or eye swelling / redness related to the side effects of pirenoxine sodium.
I hope this helps.
