Role Of Isotine Eye Drop In Campaign Against Blindness}

Submitted by: Chris George

Cataract is a very common eye disease in older people, caused by the clouding of the natural lens which adversely affects the vision.

The lens is made of water and protein. The protein is arranged in a precise way that keeps the lens clear and lets light pass through it. But as we grow old, some of the protein may clump together and start to cloud a small area of the lens. This is a cataract, and over time, it may grow larger and cloud more of the lens, making it harder to see

There are different types of cataract include Congenital, Traumatic, Senile, Diabetic juvenile etc. In modern allopath, surgery is being carried out all over the world for cataract patients. However according to Recent Research in Ayurveda; thousands of patients of cataract have been cured by Dr.Basu’s Isotine Eye Drop

It is unfortunate that India tops the list of blind people (1.2 million) in the world. To control this problem, the government of India spent millions under national blindness control programme to carry out cataract operation every year 4 to 5 million people suffering from cataract become blind who have to die as handicapped on account of lack of facilities for cataract surgery Recently Dandona and Coworkers (2000) reported in American Journal of Ophthalmology that about 22% patients loss eye sight even after cataract operation & rest of the patients loss his vision due to any causes of Retinal Degeneration after 1-4 years. According to WHO, It seems difficult to control blindness by the year 2020.

In view of above considerations, the challenge before ophthalmologists is how to solve the big problem of blindness posed on account of cataract. Several incurable eye diseases like Macular Degeneration, Color Blindness, Diabetic Retinopathy, Retinitis pigmentosa etc. add to the magnitude of the problem of blindness.

A ray of hope has come from alternative system of medicine where Ayurveda herbs have given wonderful results using several Ayurveda herbs; it has been possible to develop an Eye Drop ISOTINE Which has been tested over thousands of patients during 26 years and found highly effective to cure not only immature cataract but also incurable eye diseases like Macular Degeneration, Diabetic Retinopathy, Color Blindness, Glaucoma, Retinitis Pigmentosa, Myopia , Hypermetropia etc. mentioned above Isotine Eye Drop has since been registered by U.P Govt. Patented by Govt. of India since than the manufacturing company Jagat Pharma has been declared G.M.P. Certified by ISO.9001:2000, Shri Ram Institute for Industrial Research New Delhi, CDRI & CIMAP. and marketed all over the world. And being regularly used at Dr.Basus Eye Hospital and Centre for Cataract cure without operation Bareilly, several clinics centers in India at Haryana , Delhi, U.P/Rajasthan , Punjab, Mumbai, Kolkata etc. have been treating patients of immature cataract and incurable eye diseases by Isotine Eye Drop & other oral medicines.


It is well known that diabetic patients suffer from Diabetic Retinopathy and many of them develop cataract as well. Isotine Eye Drop takes care of both immature Cataract and Diabetic Retinopathy.

Recently, Prof. I.S. Roy (2001) informed that patients of immature cataract treated with Isotine Eye Drop felt very happy in the seven months trials. Lions International USA have already conferred sight first Excellence Award, several other awards like Ayurveda Ratna (Vishwa Ayurveda Parishad) Research Award (NIMA) , Rashtriya Gaurav Award , New Delhi) Gold Medal & Distinguished Service Award (Heart care foundation of India ), Atulniya Netra Chikitsa Award (Bareilly) have also been given to Dr.Basu for playing a major role in implementing a significant community project to prevent blindness. .

Economic Aspects

Presently, the Govt. is spending @ Rs. 700/- for every Cataract operation for reimbursement to voluntary organization plus the expense on salaries etc. of Eye specialist. The charges for IOL and pheco operations range from $ 5,00 to $ 5,000 for correcting vision in one eye. Compared to it the treatment by Isotine Eye Drop (full course $45 at the market rate) is too cheap and simple, for correcting vision in both the eyes.

Action plan for campaign against blindness

1. The eye specialist may continue to operate cataract for fully mature cases only.

2. Immature cataract and incurable eye diseases may be treated by Isotine Eye Drop (they

Need not be operated now).

3. To speed up, network of cataract centers (para medicals) may be opened to screen

Segregate cases of immature and mature cataract.

4. The govt. may be persuaded by ophthalmologists and media to adopt Isotine Eye Drop

for treatment of immature cataract and incurable eye diseases.

5. Voluntary organizations like lions, Rotary etc. may organize Eye Camps and Mobile

Units in a big way to fight against blindness by distributing Isotine Eye drop.
