Our dog has corneal edema, and this stuff is the treatment. Had kept her from having to lose her eyes. Great stuff, best price. And, as far as we can tell, equivalent to Muro 128. We've been using this brand for over a year.

Don't know why Muro is quite so expensive, but this is a reasonable alternative at a more reasonable price. Perhaps not quite as refined as Muro, a bit softer coming out of the tube, but gets the job done, prevents recurrent erosion discomfort.

Needing to use nightly, I am pleased to find a comparable generic product to Muro 128 ointment. I found this product after a recall on the Muro 128 made it unavailable for a time. Glad I did! The Akorn ointment offers quality results AND a significant amount of savings. Not going back to wasting my $$ on Muro!

This generic product works as well as the name brand and costs much less.

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.
