Eyedrop Brands Containing MSM:
The FDA recently put out a statement warning consumers not to purchase and to immediately discontinue usage of eyedrops containing MSM. This includes but is not limited to LightEyez MSM Eye Drops and Dr. Berne’s MSM Drops. These solutions have been linked to bacterial contamination, fungal contamination, or both. Both brand’s products are unapproved drugs and illegally marketed in the U.S. because they contain methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) as an active ingredient. Lighteyez has claimed their eyedrops can alter or enhance eye color, while Dr. Berne’s claims that MSM “offers the body a very important trace mineral, Sulfur, which has health-promoting and pain-relieving properties”. However, eyedrops containing MSM have already been linked to 3 deaths, extensive vision loss, and surgical eye removal.
