Information: Oculoheel, a homoeopathic combination preparation, effectively alleviates the following eye symptoms:
1. Dry Eyes
2. Watery Eyes
5. Light sensitivity
Tired Eyes / Eye Strain
Inflammatory conditions of the eye, such as conjunctivitis, blepharitis, dacry-ocystits (especially chronic forms).
Dosage (eye drops):
The recommended dosage is 1-2 drops into each affected eye 3 times per day.
Length of therapy:
As a homoeopathic combination preparation, Oculoheel is especially suitable for long-term treatment.
The unused medication in an open phial must be discarded to avoid contamination. Oculoheel eye drops are sterile until they are opened and do not contain preservatives.
Suitability for contact lense wearers
Oculoheel is especially suited for wearers of contact lenses as it does not contain preservatives.
1 phial with 0.45 ml (= 0.45 g) contains: Euphrasia officinalis D5 110.7 mg, Cochlearia officinalis D5 110.7 mg, Jaborandi D5 110.7 mg, Echinacea angustifolia D5 110.7 mg.
Euphrasia officinalis (eyebright) - Spasmodic photophobia, especially in daylight; cutting pains and pressure in the eyes; acute conjunctivitis.
Cochlearia officinalis (horse-radish) - Inflammation of the eyes.
Jaborandi (pilocarpus jaborandi) - Eye disorders.
Echinacea angustifolia (narrow-leaved coneflower) - Inflammations of every kind.
Conjunctivitis (chronic and acute) - alongside dry eye - is the most frequent eye disease of all.
Because of the increasing sensitivity of people (allergy) as well as increasing environmental poisons (ozone, air pollutants) and work-related stress (working with PCs, air-conditioned rooms), inflammatory eye diseases now occur with ever more frequency (increase in incidence: 10 - 15 per cent annually).
The symptoms of conjunctivitis are itching and burning of the eyes, a gritty feeling in the eyes and increased lachrymal secretion.
Contact lenses may be another cause.
So-called dry eyes is the eye disease treated most frequently with medications, the annual increase being 10 - 15 per cent.
Elderly people are affected in particular. It is precisely in old age that the formation of lachrymal fluid decreases.
Symptoms range from simple discomfort, such as itching and burning, to a sensation of foreign bodies.
The homoeopathic combination preparation Oculoheel contains various homoeopathically prepared active ingredients.
On the basis of their antiphlogistic, anti- oedematous and antiseptic properties, they have proved suitable for treatment of conjunctivitis and so-called dry eyes.
As a result of their good tolerability, Oculoheel eye drops are also suitable for long-term treatment, e.g. of chronic conjunctivitis.
Since Oculoheel contains no preservatives, wearers of contact lenses can also use the preparation without problems.
Oculoheel contains the medicinal agent Jaborandi (pilocarpus j.).
The main active ingredient of Jaborandi (pilocarpus j.) is pilocarpine.
Pilocarpine is used in ophthalmology as a miotic and to reduce intraocular pressure.
It has therefore proved particularly appropriate to use Jaborandi (pilocarpus j.) for overstrained eyes, heat and burning in the eyes, and accommodation difficulties.
Euphrasia is indicated for inflammatory eye conditions associated with excessive secretion or lachrymal flow.
This plant, called eyebright, was already used as an antiphlogistic in folk medicine.
The range of indications for Euphrasia is given by the following principal symptoms: stinging and burning of the eyes, inflamed reddening of the conjunctiva, inflammation of the cornea, swelling and sticking together of the lids, copious lachrymal flow, especially in the wind.
The main active ingredients of Cochlearia are mustard oils. Cochlearia has an anti- oedematous and antiseptic action. The main fields of use of Cochlearia are chronic eye inflammations.
Echinacea angustifolia is not only known as an antiseptic in folk medicine, but is also used in homoeopathy on any type of septic process.
In ophthalmology, Echinacea has proved suitable for eye pain (when reading) and lachrymal flow in fresh air.
