What plant-based eye drops are available?
Of all the funds for the treatment of eye diseases, the most popular are: Aloe extract according to Fedorov and Aloe extract according to Filatov. Consider each in detail.
Drops Aloe extract according to Fedorov received their name from the outstanding domestic ophthalmologist Svyatoslav Fyodorov. He developed a drug that fights eye diseases and prevents their development.
The advantages of the drug:
- Contains water saturated with silver ions. It has a healing property.
- The second main ingredient is the aloe extract itself, which destroys harmful organisms and stimulates the regeneration of cells and tissues. In addition, the drops contain many auxiliary substances for the complex action on the organs of vision.
- With the help of Aloe Vera extract, according to Fedorov, you can not only treat such diseases as cataracts, glaucoma, myopia, hyperopia, etc., but also take care of the skin of the face and eyelids.
The disadvantage of these drops is that they are difficult to find in a regular pharmacy. In order to purchase a drug, you need to make a purchase through the online resource of the manufacturer or company delivering this product.
Aloe extract according to Filatov - a tool similar to the previous one. The difference is in a richer composition. In addition, that contains the above drug, Aloe extract according to Filatov includes phytoncides and vitamins. Because of this, the drops have a stronger effect and last longer.
The disadvantage of this drug is its high cost (up to 700 rubles per 10 ml).
How else can you use aloe extract, read our material.
Eye drops "Aloe extract according to Fedorov"
To begin, let us review the description of the "drug" proposed by the manufacturer - the company Phytomax. "Abstract" ascribes the agent not only anti-inflammatory, antifungal and antibacterial properties, but even antiviral, which cannot be considered true. But we still honor what the manufacturer writes next.
There is actually little reliable information on the effectiveness of these drops.
The main ingredients of the Fedorov Aloe Extract product (eye drops) are aloe juice and aloe tree extract (concentrated extract from the same juice). The following is a list of components, in the presence of which customers will have to take their word for it, since the product is not registered in the Russian Federation as a medicine.
In addition to the juice and aloe extract, the drug allegedly contains:
- ascorbic acid (vitamin C),
- bee honey (recall, it may be an allergen),
- adenosine - refers to the pharmaceutical group reparant and regenerators, in ophthalmology is used to treat cataracts,
- silver ions - show antibacterial action,
- pyridoxine (vitamin B6) has a complex effect, is used in the treatment of dermatitis, pregnant women toxemia, sciatica and other diseases,
- benzalkonium chloride - in ophthalmic practice it is more often used in combination with hypromellose, antifungal and antiseptic, and not antiviral, as indicated by the aloe eye drops.
As you can see, it is not such an absolutely natural remedy - “Aloe extract according to Fedorov”. And most importantly, its action is provided not so much by aloe, as by auxiliary components.
When can I apply?
The list of indications for the use of aloe vera extract for the treatment of eyes can be said to be stunning. Since the list - serious and even intractable diseases. But the abstract suggests treating eye drops with aloe:
- primary glaucoma (damage to the retina and optic nerve) as part of complex therapy,
- cataract (visual impairment due to complete or partial clouding of the lens),
- myopia and hyperopia of any degree
- iritis and keratitis (inflammation of the iris and cornea, respectively),
- Sjogren's syndrome (dry eyes),
- "Night blindness" (hemeralopia),
- conjunctivitis (inflammation of the outer eye membranes),
- diabetic retinopathy (severe complication of diabetes mellitus with retinal vascular lesions),
- destruction of the vitreous body, observed by the patient as points, nodules or threads "before the eyes",
- central and peripheral retinal dystrophy,
- myopic chorioretinitis - focal inflammatory lesion of the posterior part of the eyeball,
- blepharitis and chalazion (chronic inflammation of the eyelids and meibomian glands).
In addition to all of the above, the abstract recommends using Aloe Vera according to Fedorov for the prevention of visual impairment and for "eye fatigue syndrome" (apparently, this is a symptom complex called asthenopia, ICD-10 code - H53.1).
Each self-respecting instruction on the use of a medical drug should contain information regarding important points when using it - for example, compatibility with other medicines, possible side effects. Contraindications may also be included here.
Producers of aloe vera according to Fedorov claim complete safety of the product (since it is supposedly made entirely from natural ingredients) and therefore believe that it is contraindicated only if you are allergic to any ingredient. This is, of course, the right, but not enough, caution.
Svetoslav Nikolaevich was an outstanding ophthalmologist-surgeon and did not participate in the development of drugs.
Review of treatment reviews
Can patient feedback change my mind about aloe vera extract? It depends on where these reviews are read. As a rule, on the manufacturer's website you can see a considerable amount of touching stories, ending with gratitude to the creators of "such a wonderful tool."
It is not difficult to guess why so many positive evaluations received an extract of aloe by Fedorov. Testimonials on manufacturers' websites, as a rule, are written either by company employees or “specially trained people”, for whom writing reviews is a regular job.
But let's see what the patients of the Moscow Eye Clinic write. Here the picture is just the opposite.
- No patient claimed the effectiveness of the extract according to Fedorov.
- There are those who did not even try to treat them, realizing that this is not a medicine.
- But there are those who frankly became disillusioned with the drug, having spent half a year on useless "treatment."
Can I bury aloe juice in my eyes at home?
Either because of the special mentality of our fellow citizens, or because of the extreme reluctance to sit in line to an ophthalmologist, but many people are wondering whether it is possible to do even more natural means and use aloe for the eyes at home - not for nothing Is the window growing? We were not too lazy to interview the ophthalmologists and pediatricians about the possible consequences of such self-treatment, and this is what we can say.
- The eyes are a very sensitive and vulnerable organ into which only sterile substances can be dripped. Homemade aloe juice can hardly be called sterile, and this is one of the first reasons why it should not be dripped into the eyes.
- Aloe juice has a biostimulating, regenerating, like all succulents, and trophic (feeding) effect, but for the mucous membrane of the eye it is excessively aggressive.
- В лечении серьезных глазных патологий эффективность сока алоэ научно не доказана. A named in the indications for the use of a cataract, according to experts, can only be treated surgically.
- Aloe can cause a serious allergic reaction. This means that you risk not only losing time on illiterate treatment, but also getting a very undesirable side effect.
We think this is quite enough for you to stop the desire to experiment with the popular methods of treatment.

Aloe vera leaves
Since antiquity, various essences, balms, elixirs and ointments have been created from agave leaves. Scientists even speculate that aloe juice was one of the ingredients that make up the embalming of pharaohs. Aloe for eyes is of particular importance, due to the composition of the plant itself and its healing properties, we will talk about this in the proposed article.
Health benefits of aloe
The leaves and aloe juice were used both externally (for skin diseases and burns), and internally - the juice was used to treat disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, enhance immunity, in diseases of the lungs, neuralgia and other ailments.
It is known that aloe leaves contain more than 75 useful substances - vitamins A, B, C, E, mineral salts, flavonoids, catechins, carotenoids, amino acids, glycosides (they give a bitter taste to the leaves), tannins, and also anthracene, emodin and aloin, thanks to which aloe is used as an antitumor agent.
Applying aloe to the eyes
Today we will talk about the eyes - the main organ of perception of the world. Unfortunately, we turn to an optometrist, starting from childhood, and especially in old age, when visual impairment worries, cataracts and glaucoma occur. We are prescribed glasses (which allow us to see better, but not improve vision), drops (sometimes expensive) for everyday use.
The world famous Russian ophthalmologist and surgeon Vladimir Filatov (1875-1956), while working at the Odessa Research Center for Eye Diseases, devoted his whole life to the fight against eye diseases and, based on long studies, created the theory of biogenic stimulants that are formed in plants and promote healing in various diseases of the eye.
Biostimulants are activators of metabolism in diseased organs and tissues, the prefix "bio" means coming from a living organism. And plants are living organisms that can breathe, grow, turn to the light, multiply (aloe - side shoots).
Academician Filatov first discovered biostimulants in plants when studying agave leaves, aloe, vegetable tops, burdock and plantain leaves, which were specially treated. As a result, he determined that the most effective natural nutrient stimulator is aloe juice.
Frozen aloe juice and its benefits
Filatov discovered that freezing leaves of aloe and the use of juice from them gives amazing results in ophthalmic practice.
Cells of cut leaves of aloe with the loss of light and nutrition continue to live. Filatov found that living tissue in critical conditions, upon dying off, produces substances that support life in this tissue, trying to restore it. Freezing of these leaves doubles the critical situation and highly active biogenic stimulants are produced in the leaves.
Filatov first proposed treatment with aloe leaves after exposure to darkness and cold in the treatment of cataracts, conjunctivitis, myopia, optic nerve atrophy, and successfully implemented this method in his practice.
He proved that the use of these drugs enhances immunity, enhances the biochemical processes in the body, restores diseased tissue and speeds up treatment.
To obtain aloe aqueous extract under clinical conditions, aloe leaves were kept in the dark at a temperature of 4 to 8 ° C for 12 days. Then they were crushed, ground and mixed with distilled water.
The resulting mixture was heated, filtered and the filtrate poured into ampoules. Subsequently, the ampoules were sterilized so that there were no pathogens in the preparation.
Today, aloe extract by Filatov eye drops are produced, their composition is more complex than described above, in particular, honey, phytoncides and vitamins, as well as water with silver ions are added to it, which enhances the effect of the drops and prolongs their shelf life, but drops these are expensive.
Also, eye drops are available: “Aloe extract according to Fedorov, whose composition was patented by renowned ophthalmologist Svyatoslav Fedorov and which help prevent lens opacities. In addition to aloe juice, drops include antioxidants, vitamins of group B, folic acid and other substances.

- Juice is squeezed into a sterile container using a 3-layer sterile bandage and mixed with boiled water in a ratio of 1:10 (one message indicates that the juice should be boiled for 2-3 minutes - probably this is correct, because the drops should be sterile) .
- Juice is stored in a sterile container in the refrigerator, but not for long - during storage, it loses its medicinal properties.
