I've had pink eye 3 times in my life. What worked the best was colloidal silver. One drop in each eye every 4-6 hours; no touching or rubbing the eye(s); washing hands and washing anything that had touched my face (towels, pillow case, etc. ), and depending on the severity, the pink eye cleared up within 24 hours to 3-4 days. It's also important to be sure and sleep on your back. If you lie on the side that is not infected and a tear travels from the infected eye, over the bridge of your nose, and some how makes contact with your good eye, then you'll wake up with 2 pink eyes. I know, since it happened to me. : (
Now if I feel any discomfort in my eyes and suspect pink eye, I'll quickly use the silver. The Santa Ana winds in So California is the worst time for pink eye. Wear sunglasses if the winds are blowing.

I had a developing pink eye last Friday noticed by my manager, at the same time I was starting to not feel too well. When I got home, my husband had me put a soaked hot cloth on my eye for 15 minutes, later washed it with cloth with baby shampoo and water, then finally washed it with just plain water. I searched on the internet for added information and saw the silver colloidal mineral testimony so I did it also by using q-tip since we don't have available spray bottle as suggested. I did the washing one more time the next morning and kept using the silver colloidal mineral using qtip as an eye drop all throughout the day.
By Sunday , it was totally gone-except for my flu. Ever since Friday when I started to noticed I was having sypmtoms of flu I started drinking the Apple Cider Vinegar with water and eat tablespoons of honey which I liked. I love taste of vinegar coz in the Philippines I grew up using it in all my fruits and even drinking it. Anyway, the next day Saturday, on my day off I did it again like morning, afternoon and evening. I never felt weak, I felt strong but I know my body is fighting a flu. The next day Sunday, I kept it going and by the end of the night, it was gone-totally. So thank you earth clinic for your help.
When my eyes get itchy and icky, colloidal silver (CS) works fast. I accidentally left the CS batch brewing for several hours and since the solution was bit yellow I don't ingest but works great topically.
Don't ever put 3% Hydrogen Peroxide in the eyes, I did that by accident. Contact lense used to have a cleaner called AOSEPT (you use with neutralizing disc) and I mistakened it for saline. Aosept was basically 3% H202. It burned so bad and turned eye so red and I kept flushing with water for like 1/2 an hour but no damage. Had it been 35% H202, it probably would have burned the corneal tissue!
But CS in eye is soothing provided you make it right, distilled water, pure silver (at least .999), no salt.
I have several times, used a drop of colloidal silver in each eye for pink eye and it's worked every time...and very quickly.
Hi. I recently had a bad case of conjunctivitis which was not going away and lasted about two weeks. I purchased colloidal silver, sprayed it into my eyes two to three times in one day and it was gone the next!!! Great stuff and so is your site----thank you so much
Pink eye cure!
I mix raw honey, Colloidal Silver (CS) & Greek organic plain yogurt in a dropper.
Put it in eye every 20 minutes or so for a few hours. It will burn just a bit at first. You have to put it I'm your eye at least twice an hour to be effective.
It will clear up In a few hours!
Miracle Cure! After using antibiotic eye drops and my infection getting worse, I came here and combined your top two remedies. I had some old 18 ppm collodial silver and I added a bit of isotonic saline solution to fill my bottle and just enough organic Apple Cider Vinegar to give the solution a slight burn when dropped in my eyes. I put the drops in hourly while awake. One day later, and no green gunk, the itching, reddness and pain is almost completely gone. I will continue for a few more days just to make sure the infection is gone.
Elderflower or Sambucus nigra.
Collect the flower in early summer (May and June flowering). Cover the freshly picked flower heads with boiling water and leave to cool. Take the solution and use a dropper or cotton bud to apply to your eyes. I used this 2 days ago, it works and is an old and I thought well known remedy. Also for cats and dogs with conjunctivitis. Putting vinegar in your eyes just sounds silly. Sambus flowers are very antiseptic. The same thing with a cooled solution of sugar and water poured over the flowers and left for 48 hours makes a wonderful cordial. This eventually will form a alchoholic drink if left to ferment as the flowers supply their own favourable yeasts.
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.
I had an eye infection over the course of a week. I put some antibiotic drops in my eye a couple times and it started to get better, so naturally I went out of town that weekend and didn't think about bringing more drops. When I woke up the next day with my entire eyelid swollen and red, I decided to try washing with green tea. I steeped the tea in a mug and then cooled the water til it didn't burn. I washed all around my eye (lid, corners, creases) and then turned my head slightly to the side to let the warm tea get inside my eye (this doesn't hurt, the heat actually takes away some of the soreness! ) I washed my eye out this way every two to three hours and before I went to bed. At first, I thought this was making it worse, but after a solid 24 hours, I started to see results. Now after a few days, my eye is pretty much back to normal, although I'm going to continue with the washing until I'm sure the infection is gone. This remedy was great, although it took a little time.
True enough, green tea bags do work if you've got watery, pussy, red, swollen eyes. Yea!
Here's what I did, and it worked exceptionally: brew a nice cup of hot green tea using TWO bags.........let it cool some but keep it hot, but not scalding.......go into the bathroom or use the kitchen sink when ready.
Now, take a bag in each hand and start to slowly rub the bag full of the hot brew on your closed eyes. Obviously a key part of this is that the water not be too hot BUT it should be fairly hot. When you feel it, it's going to give comfort to your bleary eyes, believe me. You are going to love the effect of the heat, and I believe that's part of the cure too - the heat. When the bags cool off some keep dipping into the hot tea again and again. Touch them to your eyes, hold them on your eyes, let them seep into your eyes.
Occasionally tilt your head to the side and run some of the liquid smack INTO your eyes. Roll your eyeball around.
That's it. It will take 24-48 hours to get rid of the pink eye, but you'll get almost instant relief. Keep doing the procedure every 2-4 hours if possible. Enjoy. This cure might be a little less humiliating than the one where you urinate into your own eye....if you're going to try that one don't let mama catch you.
Green Tea Cured Pink Eye
I awakened on Wednesday of last week with a crusty, gooey, left eye that was very red and felt as though my pupil was dilated. I boiled water and steeped a bag of green tea in a 1/2 cup of water for 20 minutes. Once the tea bag was at a comfortable temperature, I put on my eyelid and allowed some tea to drizzle into the eye. I kept the tea bag there for approximately 10 minutes and then repeated the procedure several more times throughout the day. Within 24 hours my eye was completely back to normal. Thanks Earth Clinic for the remedy!
I just wanted everyone to know that #1 this site is great! i first found this site looking for a pink eye cure for my two daughters (ages 2 and 3) well i tried the green tea remedy on each of them and within a few days (i think it was 3days) their pink eye was gone! never had to go to the doctor or anything. I did however change up the process a little.(they had a pretty severe case of pink eye)
So what i did was i put about 3 drops of colloidal silver in each eye then i placed a warm tea bag over each eye and left it on for about 15-20 minutes (i steeped the tea just as if i were making a cup of tea)and at first when i removed the tea bag i could see the green mucousy stuff floating around in the eyes like it was being pulled out of the crevices or something. it was nasty. but by the 2nd day it had pretty much cleared up. i followed that same procedure-silver then warm green tea bag-about 2-3x a day for 3days and it has not come back! that was almost a month ago. p.s. the secret to getting the tea bags on the eyes of people so young is to wait until nap time or bed time (in case anyone was wondering how i managed to do that). so anyway-thanks for the help! God bless.
I tried soaking my eye in green tea to cure my pink eye several hours after I realized I had it. It worked great! Within 24 hours my eye was no longer ichy and a lot less red! I used two tea bags in cup hot water, let it cool down, spooned some up and held the full spoon up to my eye for a minute several times throughout the day. The next morning it was notably better and I didn't have to spend any extra money or see a doctor. Thanks!
