Scratched Eye Remedy:
A wonderful natural remedy for a scratched eye is a (Grated Raw Potato)! Simply take a white Idaho or baking potato and peel off the skin. Then grate about one tablespoon onto a paper towel. Squeeze the potato to get the starchy water from the potato on the paper towel, then place the paper towel directly over the injured eye for 15 minutes. It usually does the trick in a single treatment. Do not rub the eye. It will take the pain away and speed up the healing process significantly! I have seen this remedy work (4)times now.
1. I burned my eyes about 25 years ago on a sun lamp.
2. My daughter was scratched in the eye by our cat.
3. A friend was hit in the eye by a paper wad!
4. My son didn't know what he did, but woke up with a painful scratch in his eye.
I was given this wonderful natural remedy from my dad when I burned my own eyes, and have joyfully helped many others with the same remedy. Now I am happy to pass it on to others!
As an aftermath of a cold, I have red eyes. Have used the honey/water drops, also colloidal silver dilution in my eyes. My right eye is redder than the left. On one of Dr. Oz's shows, he mentioned red eyes could be a sign of inflammation. Could anyone advise me what to take to correct this? I took elderberry, colloidal silver and a first responder that has garlic in it for the cold. I'm taking coral calcium and baking soda to build up my ph. Thanks for any suggestions.

Hi Ted / Earth Clinic followers:
I have inflammatory arthritis (neg Rheum factor & neg B-27) which is in remission since I started embrel 5 weeks ago. Before I went on Embrel I took a course of Prednisalone to calm down a CRP of 49. When I came off Pred, my eyes started to become bloodshot. I then went on Embrel about two weeks later and this has not fixed the scleritis which is so bad in my right eye now, I am off work for two weeks with no signs of improvement. They now want me on MTX also.
What could be setting of this scleritis so bad, considering I have had this inflammatory condition for 2 years and never had any issues with my eyes.
Also what could I be doing to improve or stop doing if there are known causes that make scleritis worse?
Physically I am training and eat healthy, I look forward to your reply TED.
Hello, hoping someone can offer a remedy. I have been diagnosed with recurring scleritis. (inflamation in the white part of the eye) I am a 41 yr old male. I have had this all my life. It has progressively gotten more frequent in past years. I have been taking 2 200mg of celebrex for two years. The celebrex works and I have no eye problem as long as I take the celebrex. Any suggestions on a natural approach. Celebrex will eventually ruin my liver and kidneys.
Does anyone have any info or remedies to combat Strabismus (accomodative esotropia) in babies? Any input is greatly appreciated.
A friend in his early 40's has been having problems with swollen eyeballs. He says it's not a thyroid issue. First, only one eyeball was bothering him. The eyeball isn't protruding, but you could tell that one eyeball was slightly larger than the other. He says it feels tender, sore, and could feel pressure in the eye. It's been that way approximately 2 years that I know of. Now, he's starting to experience similar symptoms in the other eye. Both eyes water/tear occassionally (one at a time, but not both at the same time) for apparently no reason. He doesn't have money for doctor's visits, prescriptions, testing, etc. So he seems to just suffer through. I know he has diabetes, high BP, and cholesterol issues he takes meds for. I'm not sure exactly what he takes, and I also know he has year-long allergies (clearing throat, runny/stuffy nose, etc. ) Any ideas what could be causing the swollen eyeballs or what he can do for relief?

Vitamin C Complex for spasmodic eye blinking (Blepharospasm)
I had a continually worsening eye irritation in both eyes for about 2wks. Once it progressed to continual blinking (I believe it's called blepharospasm), interference with my vision, and waking up with my eyes caked with goop, I decided to search earthclinic for a remedy. I decided on trying holy basil in my eyes, as shared by Sabiba from Morocco, for conjunctivitis.
I made a tea with dry loose-leaf Holy Basil tea (Tulsi tea) and dripped it into my eyes. It stung at first, but it did bring quick relief after the initial sting. But it did not heal my eyes.
I then began to take 1000 mg doses of powdered Vitamin C with vitamins and minerals added (including calcium and magnesium but not a significant amount). By the 2nd day, I knew the C was healing my eyes and the blinking had almost completely discontinued. My eyesight has cleared up as well. I will continue the vit C for a few more days, maybe 5. I'm thankful that God guided me to using the Vitamin C because the only other thing that has helped this in the past has been a trip to my homeopathic dr and taking their remedies. This has saved me about $150.
About 8 years ago, I developed floaters in one of my eyes. When these floaters caused me to see light streaks in a dark room, I knew I had to go to a retina specialist. I had a tear in my retina which was fixed by laser surgery. Never had a problem since in that eye even the small floaters(blood) disappeared after a while.
recently, in my other eye, I got floaters and the flashes of light I a dark room. Went to another eye doc who said I had Vitreous Detachment which is when the gel which is attached to the retina detaches leaving a small hole in the retina which causes the flashes of light. Doc says no cure come back in 6 weeks. If it get worse which means the retina could tear or become detached, call for emergency. The symptoms would be a "veil" or dark shade falls over my eye which bottom line means I am going blind. Has anyone had the Vtreous detachment or have found something which cures or prevents this from happening? Just curious. They all say these things come with age, probably true as I am in my 60's.

My eyes water 24/7, I'm not allergic to anything, and I don't wear mascara. This has been going on for just under 2 years and I'm constantly having to dry and touch my eyes. I have been to the doctors and hospital but they can't seem to find a problem. I will try anything!
