What’s the Problem with LightEyez MSM Eye Drops?

According to an FDA Warning [1.] issued on August 22, 2023, LightEyez MSM Eye Drops and Dr. Berne’s MSM Eye Drops are unapproved drugs that are illegally marketed in the United States because they contain methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), an organosulfur compound that is used to fight inflammation, as an active ingredient.

Recalled Eye Drops Linked to 4 Deaths, Dozens of Cases of Vision Loss

An outbreak of contaminated eye drops in early 2023 [2.] was linked to at least 4 deaths and 14 people suffering total vision loss, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC]. Another 4 people were forced to have their eyeballs surgically removed.
