Homeopathic Remedies for Eye Inflammation

What is Eye Inflammation?

An eye inflammation can occur due to a localised protective reaction of the tissue to an irritation, injury, infection, trauma or surgery.  Although most cases of inflammation of the eye are not too severe, it is still important to reduce the severity and the duration of the eye inflammation as soon as possible to prevent any permanent or scarring damage.  Sometimes even a very small scar tissue may result in an irreversible impairment of the vision as the eyes are really very delicate organs.

Symptoms of eye inflammation to look out for includes swelling, heat, redness and pain and sometimes loss of function.  Homeopathy can be an effective aid for eye inflammation, helping in the prevention of complications and promotion of faster recovery.
