I have been struggling with eye goop and mucus behind my eyelids. The forest fires in California have made the air quality here terrible along with seasonal allergies.

Victorian era women believed diluted lemon juice eye drops kept their eyes clean and bright and clear of infection.

This has helped a lot in a very short time.

* Put 5 - 10 drops of fresh lemon juice (start with 5 drops - adjust to tolerance) and ½ oz distilled saline water or boiled water that is cooled.

* Mix them well.

* Make use of an eye-dropper and put several drops into your eyes. Repeat several times daily. Make a new batch daily.

I am both amazed, happy and angry! Amazed and happy because of how quickly 2 drops of fresh lemon juice diluted with water could cure my pink eye. Angry because I feel bamboozled by doctors and the medicine they've prescribed me for years! Thank you so much. I'm going to share it with everyone I know.

Hello. When I was little I remember getting "pink eye" and my father putting lemon juice (from a lemon) straight into my eye....WOW did it sting but strangly only for about a minute and then it was GONE! And so was the infection! We kept doing compresses with a warm washcloth but the infection was cleared up. He used an empty eye dropper to suck up the fresh lemon juice and then dropped a couple of drops into each eyeball. Do'nt give up if this doesnt work the first time...you might just have a really bad infection. Keep doing it and you should be "cured" in no time. :) P.S. an organic lemon might work ever better. Good luck!
