My husband has been suffering from pterygiums in both eyes (benign wing like growths). We have been advised to have them removed since one of them is beginning to cross the pupil area. Does anyone have experience in treating these without surgery?

Just read about someone who used Castor oil to cure this without surgery. Look under Castor Oil Cures.

I had a pterygium removed and it grew right back! I have them on all four sides, they say it's genetic but no one in my family had ever heard of them. I was told that if it grew over my pupil, I wouldn't be able to see, so I had the surgery and it was awful! I have been watching it since and it grew back but not any further than it was, so I'm leaving it alone. I don't know what to do other than continual use of Refresh Tears or something like that to keep the eye moist; dry eye is part of it. My vision has changed b/c of it, but I still don't need glasses. My advice is to have your husband look into anything that could keep him from having surgery. Good luck!


Eyelid

Fat upper eyelid may be the result of an allergy brought on by cold east wind. I dont know. Fat lids came with runny nose & cough. The fat lids rest on my eyelashes making me feel tired, when I am not. I dont eat nonsense food. Cold symptoms have gone but fat lids remain. Any clues anyone? John.

Hi John, I had fat eyelids for years. Not long after I went gluten-free one of the many wonderful side-effects I experienced was having my eyeslids lose that puffiness. They no longer rest on my eye lashes. I also lost bloating in my face and abdomen. Before I went gluten-free I was eating whole wheat and other good quality foods that had gluten. Look into hidden food allergies and food sensitivities. It might be a possibility. It might also be seasonal allergies. And for me, my seasonal allergies are not nearly as bad as they used to be now that I am gluten-free. So a hidden food allergy/sensitivity can make your reaction to other allergines (pollen, pets, mold, etc. ) worse. Also note that if you are outside during your allergy season or doing gardening or yardwork, pollen amd mold spores can cling to your hair. Be sure to have washed your hair before going to bed and change your pillow case if you didn't. Hope this helps you find the cause.

I got rid of cysts on my eye several times, very easily, by putting apple cider vinegar on the cyst with a cotton swab 3 times a day for a week. They just shrink and fall off!

What is the safest remedy to get rid of an eyelid cyst? :-(


Festoon Remedies  

Posted by Addy (Flowery Branch, Ga) on 04/15/2013

Festoons/Puffy Eyes. Does anyone have experience with these without surgery? I've had puffy eyes for a while now and this year it's become a bit more. I now have what looks like fatty pads below my puffiness and it looks horrible. I'm tired of looking so tired all the time. Using moisture makes them swell up prettybad. I have also been using witch hazel for toner a couple times per week, and really try to watch my sodium intake. What should I look at on the inside. Some sites reveal sun damage, edema and other things will induce them. Anybody's thoughts are appreciated.

Hi Addy, for what it's worth, going gluten free really helped me with my puffy eyes. The top part of my eyelid was big & puffy & all the way down to my eyelashes. Now it's a much more regular size and the part of my eyelid that covers the eyeball is visible again. I was so happy to see that part of my eyelid again. I bought eye shadow again. :)

Dry Eye remedy

I have had dry eyes for over 25 years. I suffered with it for a long time while trying different remedies which didn't work. My opthamologist actually told me about this proven remedy. I have been taking 1000mg gelcap of flaxseed oil 2x/day for several years now and it has worked wonders for me. You have to take it for several weeks before you see results.

Flax Seeds and Aloe Vera Juice Cured My Eye Infection.

This remedy was given to me by the owner of a health food store who learned it from her grandmother: For any type of eye infection (mine was bloodshot and pinchy upon waking in the morning--possibly Pink Eye), she does the following:

Pull out the skin "pocket" below the eye and insert at least two flax seeds or as many as you can get in there. Then put a drop of aloe vera juice on the eye. Leave seeds in overnight or up to 24 hours, then remove them (they will be gummy after drawing the bacteria to them). If eye infection isn't cleared up, repeat for another 24 hours.

Notes: flax seeds can be purchased at a health food store and must be kept refrigerated. Aloe vera juice does not need to be refrigerated. Do not put contact lens in eye while flax seeds are there.


Glycerin, ALA, Carnosine  

Posted by Sozo_me_lord (Fl, Usa) on 01/25/2014

50 year old female, type 1 diabetic for 20 years. Dr. suggested possible laser for some bleeding, swelling, and hard deposits from retinopathy. Also glaucoma. I read about taking glycerin orally, carnosine eye drops, alpha lipoid acid, for some help. Any suggestions as I do not want laser treatment? Thank you

Grated potato patted around your eyes will reduce puffiness caused from lack of sleep or sinus cavity swelling. Also milk on a cotton ball applied to the eye will work. When the cotton ball gets warm, apply more milk. After 5-10 min. of this the puffiness is reduced.

I tried the green tea bag remedy and it worked great for me. I was diagnosed with graves disease and my eyes stuck out for the longest and now after 8 years of looking like a frog my eyes are finally returning to normal.

A couple of years ago I was having a problem with styes- those annoying, painful lumps on the eyelid, on or near the lash line. My cousin told me to prepare a green tea bag, make yourself a cup of tea and while the bag is still semi-hot, squeeze out excess water (leave some), and apply to the stye for a minute or so. Be careful it's not too hot (altho I like it that way). Usually there's no sign of them the next morning. Maybe a stubborn one will take another treatment, but that's it! Kills it quickly. I don't use same bag on both eyes, in case of cross-contamination. Last night I felt a severe pain in my lower left eye, but it wasn't a sty. I took out my contacts and used a tea bag on it, and irrigated it with the tea and it began watering. Which felt greatbecause it was so dry and painful!! The pain subsided altho it still stung with whatever it was in my eye. It's fine this morning. I also cured my son's red, inflamed, crusty eyes with both green tea bags and honey a couple months ago. I made the tea, added honey to it and dipped the bags back in, didn't squeeze and used them (2 bags) on each eye. Did this about 3 times in 36 hours and they were healed.

I'm passing this on from someone else who told me about it a month or so ago. Honey will take the redness out of your eyes and also return the whiteness to the whites of your eyes. If you put one drop of pasturized honey ( like Sue Bee honey) in your eye right before you go to sleep, in about two weeks the redness will be gone and the whites of your eyes will be nice and white. The honey burns for a minute so get ready but this really works. It is an old Indian remedy that has been used for centuries and will work for cataracts as well.

Iridology  

Posted by Brad (Providence, Rhode Island) on 01/13/2012

In response to the post eye color and health, Iridology is the reading of the eye. It has been around since 1861. I had a friend take the picture then we sent it to Dr. Mary Reed out of Pennsylvania and she did the reading. It's mind blowing what the feedback is. There was a group of 30-40 people who had the photos done. The eye tells so much like what your deficient in and what organs are struggling. Anyone interested can go to marys site marysherbs.com. I have no affiliation with her, I am just an average person trying to get healthy. Good Day all.
