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.

My previous post sounded like a contradiction. When I said the castor oil did no harm I meant there was no burning or unpleasant effect to my eye when I used it. As to whether it made the cataract worse, I am not saying it did. What I conclude is that cataracts get worse no matter what you do.

I searched online for hexane free, organic, cold pressed castor oil. I found a brand of 100% pure certified castor oil, it's hexane free, all this is stated on the bottle. I ordered it from online 16 fluid ounces cost approximately $14.00 US dollars, which is not very expensive, considering you only use a few drops at a time, for eyes, at least. The bottle also says it is for external use only, which means you do not consume this, it is for topical use on the skin, or in the eyes. I hope you find what you need.

Hi Blanche,

Just read your email. Hope your cataract has improved. Have you tried a product called Can-C eyesdrops (N-acetylcarnosine)? It may help. Castor oil should be cold pressed and contain no hexane.

Unfortunately not everything works for everyone. It may take longer to work, if it does, for you.

You could try Magnesium. Preferably a topical application. It is more effective that way.

I've been reading recently about MSM, Methyl Sulfonyl Methane, in a distilled water saline solution, was good for the eyes and its many issues. I believe there are commercial products available; however, I've made my own and hope it will help my vision.

for Joyce in Joelton - castor oil: Joyce, I saw your comments on using castor oil in your eye. I had previously read something about using a couple of drops in the eye each night for cataracts. Have you heard anything about this? I was thinking of trying it on my dog who has a catarac. My vet says to try it, she doesn't think it could cause any harm. Thanks! Kelly

Hello Kelly, I went looking for the answer to your question and found one posted on Earth under castor oil cures. It was posted by another sharer and does state that a couple of drops of castor oil in the eyes nightly will dissolve cataracts. I found a lot of other interesting stuff while looking, including that castor oil also has antibacterial action.

I can't vouch for the removal of the cataracts, but I can vouch for it does no harm to the eye, only good, I have never had a painful eye from getting foreign object in it clear so quickly. I will use it first for eye problems in the future.

PLEASE, I need some good quality advice!! I have been reading the pros and cons of the castor oil. Some say it is safe to use in your eyes, while others say it isn't. I had my right cataract removed a few years ago when I had insurance. My left eye is so cloudy (it doesn't look cloudy, but I see everything cloudy). I am about ready to start wearing a patch over my left eye because it is really starting to distort my vision. I don't qualify for insurance because I am diabetic. I can't afford the cataract operation (the cheapest I have found WITH a discount is $3200). I would love to just get rid of this ugly vision. HELP!!!

A couple of drops of Castor Oil (cold pressed only) put into the eyes right before you go to sleep will also get rid of cataracts.

I went to the health food store to get the cold pressed castor oil and on the bottle it says not to get it near the eyes. I am a firm believer of castor oil and have used it for years, but not the cold pressed. What is the difference and why does it say not to use it near the eyes?

Replied by Judy
(Meldrim, GA)

Someone from Long Island was asking why the label on castor oil said not to use near the eyes. Well, I called 2 different companies that sell castor oil and asked about that. Both said that they do not actually know if is is harmful for the eyes or not, but the FDA or somebody requires they put that warning on the label if they have not tested to see if it is safe for use in the eyes. It is because they had done skin testing that it is legal for the bottle to say it is safe to apply to the skin.

I'd like to know if anyone else other than the one "yea" testimony has proof it is safe since I'd like to try it as well.

Another bit of information for Helen from Long Island who wonders why castor oil bottles may say not to use near the eyes: I just read about pink eye in the ailments section on this (earth clinic)site -- and one of the cures given is drops of castor oil put in the eyes. The person recommending it said they used it repeatedly as needed for different instances of pink eye - so it would appear to be safe, as least from their comments.

Brook, you said that the 2 drops of cold pressed castor Oil in the eye at bed time will remove the cataract. How do you know this to work? I've read this also but no one has ever said something or some treatment really worked for them or someone they know. I know how I got the cataracts from taking baby asprin for Years for my heart problems and now I am on coumadin to keep my blood thin. The cold pressed castor oil does NOT hurt the eye but it lubricates it as when your eyes start showing they are getting dry the cataracts follow. I have been putting castor oil in my eyes for more than 1 1/2 years maybe 2 yrs. To keep them lubricated at night and upon awaking I put them in again and lay for an hour, also later in the afternoon to lubricate them again. If they start to dry out they get bothered and itchy etc.

They have "NOT" gone away but I am hoping that keeping them lubricated is slowing it down until "IF" there is something I can reverse them without surgery. There is some kind of eye drops developed by a Russian Dr that are suppose to dissolve them but they burn like the dickens and made my vision more blurry. It was $50 per month. I wish Someone who really knew how to dissolve or reverse them would post it out here for all us suffers. I think I heard ACV helps but I do ALL that!

I read a study a while back that in lab rats scientists were able to create cataracts and reverse them through the use of Beta-Carotene. Carrot Juice (made fresh not bought) is very high in Beta-Carotene. Maybe you should try that or look for a reputable supplement.

I researched a book called Physician's Reference Notebook and now have an excerpt from that book on what Edgar Cayce told some people to do:

"The following is a summary of the most commonly prescribed treatments. They are aimed at improving the circulation and eliminations and in allowing for better attunement to spiritual forces to provide coordination of the physical, mental and spiritual:

1. Osteopathy. Adjustments in the upper cervical and dorsal segments (C1, 2, 3; DI, 2, 3); sometimes in the lower dorsal coordinating with the upper lumbar. Frequency: about twice weekly for five to six weeks with rest periods of two to three weeks. This was by far the most commonly prescribed treatment.

2. Massage. With peanut oil (sometimes a combination of oils). Frequency is variable. Again twice weekly would be reasonable, though in one instance it was recommended on a daily basis before retiring. Emphasis to spine, mastoid, temple and chin areas.

3. Violet ray treatment. Sometimes recommended only after the first osteopathic series. Would be applied along the spine, head and neck areas for three minutes, then with the double-eye applicator over closed eyes for another one-and-a-half minutes about three times per week. A Glyco-Thymoline or Epsom salt pack may be used over same areas for 20-30 minutes prior to the violet ray treatments. * Discharge from the eyes may occur with these treatments. This should be wiped off with a non-irritating, antiseptic solution. * Potato poultice may also be used after the violet ray treatment. Wash off with weak eye solution that will remove inflammation drawn by the poultice.

4. Eliminations. At least once or twice daily using natural laxatives, e.g. , Eno salts, Fletcher's Castoria, bicarbonate of soda with cracker crumbs, etc. ; colonics, if necessary.

5. Diet. A wholesome diet rich in fruits and vegetables. Seafoods are allowed but no meats or sweets. Raw carrots, lettuce, celery, watercress and the like are beneficial.

6. Vibratory treatment. Another way of stimulating blood flow is, first, rub the body with cold water to produce shock, followed by fast vibratory treatment (reading 3943-1). Frequency and duration not specified. Twice weekly treatment is suggested lasting 20-30 minutes.

7. Spiritual counseling, prayer, and meditation. These are other modalities available to ensure integration of the triune body, mind and spirit. "

An Osteopath that uses the "old school of thought" is hard to find these days - sometimes you will need to go to a Chiropractor instead. Hope this helps!

Judye, if you are still with us, here is a great suggestion. Instead of Coumadyn or other drug for thinning blood, trying taking a cool cayenne capsule after a meal. Cayenne naturally thins the blood without harmful side effects. I've used it for years. However, the capsule became too disturbing so I now sprinkle a little in my early lemon/lime juice/a little maple syrup with warm water (liver cleanse). It really helps and prevents strokes.

Hi Jayna.

How much Cayenne pepper do you take at a time? I've read two Ebooks on its advantages but I have a Hiatus hernia and it really inflamed it. I wanted to start giving it to my husband who has high Blood pressure but then read several articles saying it was dangerous so I didn't go ahead. I'd like to know more as the meds he is on aren't good and I'm always concerned he will have a stroke. I must say, Meyer I used them, they really cleared my sinuses in double quick time, not something I was expecting but very welcome.

Jim B.

Answer to the Cayenne question above:

I take 2 to 3 capsules of 40000 STU with every meal. They are the brand at the big chain store. I plan on going to my local co-op health food store and getting my cayenne there.

Cataracts are the result of the inability to properly digest certain types of protein. Any remedy that will absorb or break down surface proteins will alleviate cataract growth and/or dissolve them completely. Castor oil would work, but even iodized salt will work.

There are far more than 18 effective treatments for cataracts, but then again, health care insurance and physicians frown on people treating themselves. Not to mention the FDA is strictly against home remedies.

A month ago, at the end of July, I had my eyes examined at the Medical Center as preparation for renewal of my driver's license, which was to expire in August 2012 on my 81st birthday.

I told them at that time that I felt that I was able to see better without my glasses than with them except for reading fine print in dim light, or for driving at night with the glare of oncoming headlights. The results of that examination were unnerving. My vision was certified at 20/30 left eye, 20/40 right eye, which of course was satisfactory for purposes of the DMV, but the doctor also told me I had cataracts in both eyes and after more definitive eye examination, they may want to discuss cataract surgery with me along with an updated prescription for new bifocals.

So on August 31st I went in for the "more definitive" eye examination. The result of these tests was 20/20 vision in both eyes and no evidence of cataracts! The doctors asked me what I had been doing differently.

I told them I had been taking a new supplement called NAC 600, primarily for my heart condition, but more recently I had been experimenting with 2 drops of pharmaceutical grade Castor Oil in each eye at bedtime each night for the month of August. Their jaws dropped. The doctors were incredulous. They said they had never, ever heard of using castor oil for the eyes before. They said cataracts are not reversible except by surgical procedure.

I told them I found the research on castor oil and NAC on the internet, at various natural medicine web sites. They took notes and entered the information into my VA medical records. They told me no eye glasses need be prescribed since my vision was now 20/20. My eye pressure was about the same as it has been for the past year or so, validating the decision last October to take me off glaucoma prescription eye drops. While a little on the high end (26 left eye, 29 right eye), it appeared to be stabilized, so as far as they were concerned, I was no longer on the glaucoma suspect category that I have been on for the past 20 or so years. And while cataract surgery is the most frequently practiced surgical procedure in America today, it appears at least for the time being that I have successfully avoided cataract surgery by using that three thousand year old remedy known as Castor Oil. The doctor's want to track my eye health with follow up testing and have set up appointments for further eye exams going forward. I'm sure that I am now the "talk" of the VA eye clinic.

So, while my eyes are still a mite cloudy sometimes and when doing close reading of fine print in dim light I need reading glasses, it seems that I am now back to 20/20 vision after less than one month of castor oil eye drops! After all these years (more than two decades! ) on the glaucoma suspect list and a driver's license requiring eye glasses for driving. I will now get back to the doctors to ask for re-certification to get the eye glasses requirement off my driver's license.

Now I am continuing the castor oil application nightly for the present. But I have also continued my research and have developed a new treatment after reading about the anti-oxidant supplement N-acetyl carnosine (NAC eye drops) which, in the eye drop form, are reputed to protect the eyes against glaucoma, macular degeneration, and cataracts, and are prescribed by many practicing ophthmologists today.

I am also watching my "liver spots" on the backs of my hands disappear with nightly castor oil massages.

I credit the Budwig Protocol of flaxseed oil and cottage cheese, with fresh-ground flax seeds, in combination with the Castor Oil, with all of my health improvements - renewed vigor, vitality, and vision health.

After several years of FO/CC I noticed my eye sight was progressively improving, and that in general I could see better without than with eyeglasses. I had no way of discerning whether my vision was improving or whether I just needed a new eye glass prescription.

But when the doctor discontinued my glaucoma eye drops last October, I credit the flaxseed oil and cottage cheese regimen. I credit FO/CC in combination with the Castor Oil drops with the reversal of my deteriorating vision and beginnings of cataracts.

The doctors just smile and say very little.

Hi Christine,

I believe the original poster was referring to her use of castor oil as the 2 drops per eye nightly. She also mentioned massaging the oil on her hands. I don't believe she was intending to say that she mixes the castor oil with the cottage cheese, or consumes it in any way.

I had cataract surgery on my left eye six months ago; my eye still a little bit inflamed. I have been seeing the ophthalmologist every other week, the doctor has been prescribing eye drops, but they are not helping. Can you kindly tell me what can I use to stop the inflammation.

For your eye inflammation, mix some baking soda in water and use as eye drops. If you have colloidal silver, you could try that also. There are some anti-inflammation herb capsules you can put in water and heat up on stove to extract whatever and use as eye drops. Experiment with whatever you have on hand.

Pascalite is a creamy white-colored form of bentonite clay found only in the Big Horn Mountains of Wyoming. Cataract patients have reported that applying the clay paste to their eyelids and making eye drops from water filtered through the clay has helped to dissolve their cataracts.

People have also reported that using regular gray bentonite clay, made into a paste, applied to your closed eyelids, and left on for about 30 minutes will eventually get rid of cataracts.
Bentonite has many uses, I keep a small jar of paste (bentonite mixed with water) on my kitchen counter.

If you burn yourself, apply it immediately. It's a bloody miracle! The pain is instantly gone. It's great for insect bites and a zillion other things.

I read in a book about coconuts and how healthy they are for you that if you want to get rid of cataracts, just get a fresh coconut, and strain the water though a coffee filter, and put a few drops in your eyes and BOOM the cataracts are gone. So my dad ran out and bought one and BOOM cataracts were GONE! This is 8 years later and he is now age 80 and they are kind of coming back, so he may do it again soon. AMAZING. SO COOL.

I have used DMSO diluted to 70% and put one drop in each eye. Yes it does burn, but it only lasts for about 20-30 seconds and is gone. You do this twice a day laying down for five to ten minutes. My cataracts are almost gone and my glaucoma has been cured. DMSO will not hurt your eyes! My vision is so much better also.

DMSO clears cataracts.

I don't have any experience topically, but internally consumed mixed with spinach clears them.

The person I know that did this method used a tsp per day of DMSO in a spinach smoothie.

Dr. Morton Walker in his book on DMSO suggests to put a drop of DMSO into the eye with a cataract, for a period of time. I am about to try it, but wonder if anyone has had an experience with it. This would be food grade 99.999% pure and not the stuff one buys as a solvent from the hardware store.

Incidentally, the book is simply fantastic. Thank you for a response.

Please DO NOT put neat DMSO in your eye, you MUST always dilute DMSO when using internally, say to 70% with distilled or deionised water. The stuff from Dr Jacobs smells a little like petrol and leaves a taste like that in your mouth that you need to rinse away with a few small glasses or orange juice or any other fruit juice. It should ALWAYS be a little diluted, say to 70% before drinking for instance, I have drunk three double vodka glasses neat at once on several occasions and am still here, but when neat like that it has a slightly irritating and de-oiling effect on tissue, and when used neat externally, it makes skin on the arm raw looking and feeling and uncomfortable, maybe a little cream or oil with it when used on skin externally would be good.

So thinking about this, you don't want the tissue in your eye, which, like the brain, is largely oil, disrupted, this stuff is a powerful chemical, and might cause tissues in your eye to lose integrity when oil is stripped, so dilute at maximum to 70% and you will still notice a slight exothermic reaction, not enough to burn, just a slight warmth like you drank some lukewarm tea.


Using DMSO for eyes suggested only 20% strength, do not use more strength than 20%.

Would it be ok to dilute the DMSO with saline that is used for contact lenses?


It would depend on what else is in the solution besides saline, cause whatever else those ingredients might be, are going to be shooting thru your system. Doesn't that stuff come with cleaning agents as well for the lenses? I would give that a hard pass.

Some sea salt mixed with distilled water would be better for the eyes. A naturopath I used to watch said once that even straight DMSO has been used by a patient of hers for his cataracts. He said it hurt like a mofo for a few mins, but it did heal! I say make your own saline solution, 1% strength would be fine. Dilute the DMSO to your comfort level. I only posted this so you could hear that the undiluted is not harmful, but diluted would be far better, oh, and don't use the contact lens stuff either.

Happy healing.

HI YOU GOOD PEOPLE DOIN, , , , , , , , , , , ,

Just got in from an appointment with my Opthamologist and he said the critter I saw in my left eye last week was not an alien, but a ruptured blood vessel. He said the difference in my left and right eye color was a cataract forming.

I then ask him about the DMSO , Vit C and Gluthathione drops I am using to clear up the cataract. He began to explain what DMSO was and it should never be put in the eye. Being an Educated Redneck , I explained that I was a Ch. E who worked for CZ in the 60's and they were the company who, via Dr. Jacobs, made DMSO and did all the research. Naturally he was offended that I would challenge his disertation.

He then told me that every procedure must have a double blind test. I then told him that Dr. Jacob's answer was that million dollar horses don't know about such things and if DMSO worked , then they ran, if not , then they didn't. Simple stuff.

He then told me that if my right eye was clear in 9 months then he'd pay attention.

Mighty white of him. Told my wife that all the med schools needed to have a class on God, soes they understand that they are not he.

You can make your own cataract/macular degeneration eye drops: My eye surgeon (God) would not give me an Rx for these eye drops--he thought it was homeopathic nonsense. However, you can make your own.

  • 1/2 oz. 99.99% DMSO
  • 1/2 oz. distilled water
  • 2-3 pinches finely ground glutathione powder. Some people use MSM instead of DMSO.

Boil the glass dropper and the bottle to sterilize.

These don't sting my eyes, but they may sting yours.

I had cataract surgery on one eye and this formula clouded that lens: DMSO is a solvent. I wish I'd never had the surgery but allowed my son to talk me into it.

You can also make your own liposomal glutathione. One doctor is reversing macular degeneration with glutathione injections but the liposome form is even more powerful. You can buy all the equipment you need for less than the cost of one Dr.'s appointment.

If you want to make your own liposomes, you'll find plenty of YouTube videos showing you how. I use sunflower lecithin instead of the soy the videos use. Also, you need to process glutathione for about 30 minutes as it takes longer to encapsulate than vitamin C.

Bev, Do you mean that the formula damaged your lens implant, thus clouding it more?

Replied by Bev S.

That's exactly what I mean. I only used the drops in the eye that did not have the cataract surgery. The problem is that DMSO is a solvent and easily traveled to the eye with the lens.

I have used the Rx (1.25% ascorbic acid, 1.25% glutathione, 6.25% DMSO) for about six months ... started with one drop in each eye twice a day ... now doing one drop in each eye every other day. Have not gone for eye exam for objective opinion on reduction of low-level cataracts but I have noticed much clearer vision and better vision in lower levels of light. Previously had to have very bright light levels to see clearly close up. So, it appears to be working effectively for me. Hope this helps give some perspective to this treatment.

Dr Robert Rowen, editor of Second Opinion, developed a formula to be used three times daily which can be made by pharmacies with the following ingredients: (Make it yourself. The pharmacy will charge you about $100.)

DMSO - 6.25 percent (Get the Blue glass bottle on Amazon $19.95)
Vitamin C - 1.25 percent
Glutathione - 1.25 percent

Famed herbalist Dr. John Christopher also reported treating cataracts successfully with his herbal eyebright eye drops formula. Some suggest that a combination of the DMSO formula and eyebright might be the best eye drop treatment option of all.

You can make your own eye drops. First, your doctor will pooh-pooh the idea (as mine did) and a compounding pharmacy will charge you about $100. Buy the very pure DMSO in the blue glass bottle for $19.95 on Amazon and pharmaceutical grade Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) that you can also get from Amazon. You can also get Bulk Supplements' glutathione from Amazon.

Warning: Do not use this formula if you've had cataract surgery--even in just one eye. The DMSO ( a solvent) will blur the plastic lens in the eye. I know because it happened to me.

Glutathione is poorly absorbed when taken orally. I make a my own (absorbable) liposomal combo containing equal amounts of vitamin C and glutathione. This helps macular degeneration.

Unfortunately, I haven't noticed any improvement in my cataract using coconut water drops.

P.S. DMSO has a hundred uses so do a little research. It will be money well spent.
