The uses of Cineraria Maritima Drops
The active ingredients in this plant have a wide range of therapeutical uses. It is efficient to relieve most eye afflictions, from fleeting eye irritation and minor discomfort to blurry vision and opacified lenses.
Eyes redness, itching, and inflammation: most people experience irritated and inflamed eyes as short and annoying episodes rather than a long-lasting condition. The common causes are dry weather, allergies, hormonal changes, and excessive rubbing. When eyes become inflamed, the blood vessels swell and take more volume on the ordinarily clear conjunctiva, thus the common complaints of red-eye. Inflammation produces molecules that cause itchiness and swelling of the tissues. Cineraria Maritima drops relieve eyes redness and itchiness. The potent anti-inflammatory compounds contained in the solution contradict irritation and clear off the inflammation.
Conjunctivitis: conjunctivitis occurs when the most superficial layer of the white of the eyes and the inner eyelids gets inflamed. The causes of conjunctivitis are allergies, a viral or bacterial infection. Conjunctivitis is usually self-limited. Nevertheless, it requires an ophthalmologist assessment. The blood vessels inside the conjunctiva react to the damaging agents and become excessively dilated. Cineraria Maritima soothes the eyes and clears the redness. It lubricates the conjunctiva and clears off the excessive sticky secretions.
Cataracts and blurred vision: cataracts are common afflictions of the lens. It counts as the first cause of preventable blindness worldwide. The lens is a transparent, biconvex disc that locates behind the cornea. It is composed of fibers and living cells that need nourishment and oxygen to keep the lens s intact construction. The lens and the cornea refract the light and focus it on the back of the eye.
The only cure for cataracts is a surgical replacement, in which the removal of the native, afflicted lens and the transplant of synthetic implants restores vision. The surgical replacement of a natural lens with an artificial lens is significantly effective in preventing blindness, but it also carries the risk of multiple complications and side effects. Thus, preventive medical treatments are of great value.
Research showed that Cineraria Maritima does not cure or reverse cataracts deposition. But it significantly slows down the course of the disease and prevents further cataracts build-up.
