I used Muro 128 ointment for years and it cost a lot! The is the perfect generic substitution which I use every night. I order 6 or more at a time.

I used Muro 128 ointment for years until it became impossible to obtain (thanks Bausch & Lomb for keeping your loyal customers in the dark.....literally) so I was forced to try this since I must use this type ointment nightly to prevent/avoid corneal abrasions (misery beyond belief)....it worked great! I could tell no difference in this Akorn product and the overpriced "name brand" Muro. Save your money and buy this....what a relief!

I have an eye disorder that requires a sodium chloride medication. The name brand med the doctor prescribed was very expensive. I was fortunate to find this generic with the same composition as the brand name and it works perfectly for about a third of the price.
