Using cold-pressed castor oil 2 months now for cataracts. No change
I've used castor oil as an eye drop for nearly 1 year. I have seen no difference in my vision or the density of my cataract. It does not sting and hasn't caused any harm. I don't find the drops particularly soothing either. You may get different results. If you choose to try it, use only organic, cold-pressed, hexane free castor oil. I bought mine on Amazon and fill a small blue glass dropper bottle. Use one drop in each eye before bedtime.
Sadly the Castor Oil has not worked for me. I had my eyes tested a year ago and was told that I had a slow growing cataract. Started with the Castor Oil each evening and hoped that when I had my eyes tested again, he would wonder where the cataract had gone. Today's verdict is that it has grown, not diminished, and I now have a letter for the hospital eye specialist.
DON'T DO IT.
I was getting my cataract under control with Oclumed eye drops, then switched to the (organic, cold-pressed, hexane-free) castor oil therapy; a week later, I'm practically blind in my cataract eye now---the cloudiness is horrible, easily twice as bad as it was before. All I did was stop using the Oclumed, and (foolishly) went on the castor oil regimen---I didn't do ANYTHING different than before. Now I'm praying that the Oclumed can bring me back to where I was before I decided to try this stupid experiment.
Castor oil for cataracts—I have faithfully applied castor oil to one eye for three months. I very much hoped it would remove it, but my eye doctor did not find any improvement at all, and in fact, said it was worse. To those who wondered about it's safety, I can say it did no harm. My eyelashes became softer and somewhat fuller. I used the regular castor oil from the pharmacy because I didn't know how to get the cold-pressed. I don't know if that mattered.
