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!

REMEDY GREEN TEA BAGS Ailment Pink eye,I had pink eye for about a week and I went to two different pharmacys and they didn't help one little bit nor did they seem like they wanted to.So I am was thinking to myself that there must be some type of remedy besides going to the doctor for something as minor as a eye infection.Well I discoverd this website and read about the green tea solution,and let me tell you I had A PRETTY BAD CASE OF THE PINK EYE AND it WAS getting worse.Well,so I went to the local super market and they had the green tea and I brought home and made a cup of tea just like one of the other people that I read about and put the tea bag on each I while it was still warm for about a minute or two and what a relief. I wouldn't have believed it but it really did work incredible well.I am thinking maybe any tea might work,WHO KNOW.I WILL HALF TO test it next time I have pink eye.-Scott

I would like to thank everyone for there help. Well I have pink eye and needing to do something to help, my eyes felt like sandpaper or grit in them. So I tried the green tea method using two bags of long life Tea herbal tea. First I boiled one cup of water then placed the two bags in the cup I made a cup of tea to drink ,,LOL,, then placed the two bags one on each eye after cooled but still warm and it was amazing my eyes felt great I left the bags on while lying down for only ten minutes and after my eyes felt great.
I did hear of warm compress for pink eye but never thought of using a tea bag.

I didn't believe the tea bag cure, but figured it was worth a try to save time and money of going to the doctor. I treated both eyes as I knew from past experiences that they would both be infected soon. I brewed two tea bags in a glass of water, let the bags in the boiling water until it cooled down. I then put the bags without squeezing them dry on my eyes for 15-20 minutes. They did leak a bit so I put a towel around my face and sat back in the easy chair. I also did let some of the liquid drip in my eyes. I did this three times yesterday, and today I'm ready to go out in public! Even my family couldn't believe how fast they cleared up! Thanks so much for your help!

Thanks for this website, When I woke up on August 3 I had the pink eye. I tried that day treating it with saline solution but it continued to ache and the eye was red. However, I checked this site and found a remedy. That evening, I made green tea and applied the bag to my eye and allowed some to drop in my eye. Instantly the pain and redness was gone. When I woke the next morning the pink eye was completely gone. Thank you, this is awesome. Now I have a natural cure for the rest of my family.
(Stockton, Ca Usa)
I developed conjunctivitis whilst with a nasty flu, but could not muster the energy to get to the shop to buy sea salt. so I used the himalayan salt I already had in the house (which I use for neti pot and cooking) and used about 2 tea spoons to half a cup of water - super concentrated! I dropped a few drops in the infected eye of the evening. Early next morning my eye was worse and was so crusty and gunky my lids were pursed shut. My other eye was also starting to feel a little cloudy. Immediately I repeated the same procedure but instead this time I FLUSHED each eye with the salt solution, around a quarter of a cup to each eye. End of day 2 and my eye feels 95% better, not red or swollen, a tiny bit of gunk in the tear duct but no build up of the crusty sticky gunk of the night before. I believe that himalayan rock salt (can be purchased in rock form, fine or powdered) is less drying than sea salt and actually helps to moisturize the eye. I have also read that the black form of himalayan salt is high in sulphur, which is anti bacterial, which would also be a good remedy. I do have some black himalayan salt and will try this if it returns.
ok so I discover that the himalayan salt does not get rid of the conjunctivitis, only keeps it at bay. So I reach for the green tea bags. I use organic, unbleached green tea bags. I steep in boiled spring water and remove and let cool and place over the eye lids whilst the bags are still a little warm. I also drop some of the green tea water from the bags into each eye. I leave them on for arround 10-15 minutes. I did this twice a day for 3 days and no more conjunctivitis, third day on. However now I have the problem of having intensely dry eyes, in the morning I am having to peel open my eye lids. so now on to curing my dry eye...
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.
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 1000mg doses of powdered Vitamin C with vitamins and minerals added. 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.
There are two days, I went down with a nasty conjunctivitis accompanied by a migraine, I consulted earthclinic and tried the remedy of black tea, with no visible result, I spent the application of coconut oil, although I felt a little calm but sensation fat bother my vision.
A lady at home I recommend using holy basil leaves, eye drops. I picked 8 sheets and I crushed with a pestle, then I squeeze the crushed leaves in drops in my eyes. The relief was instantaneous, green liquid swept all landfills and was very soothing as for conjunctivitis for migraine. I reapplied the preparation 3 times a day and also the next day and the results are impressive. Thank you for all your contributions ..vives remedies of nature.
Try washing your eye with a honey wash for pink eye. Simply add a few drops (you can add more if you want it stronger) of honey to a little warm water, stir and using the cup of your hand, blink your eye over and over in the honey wash. Repeat 3 or 4 times. Do this at least 3 or 4 times during the day. Your eye will clear up.
I often use this as I get infections from when I use my contact lens.
Pink Eye - My Remedy
Hi there. I saw a section concerning pink eye and just wanted to throw in something I learnt a little while ago. I work in a medical facility and conjunctivitis comes around every so often.
I have had this a few times before and they always send you home for it. Well one day I made a mixture:
* About a cup of warm water
* 2 Table spoons of locally procured honey
* A dropper full of Comfrey Extract
* A dropper full of Olive Leaf Extract
* About a teaspoon of salt
I mixed it all together very well and used a dropper to place a few drops into the infected eye as often as I thought about it. All together probably around 10 times or more that day. By the next morning it was all over with.
What I had done was went and got a note and a prescription and decided that if the above had not improved anything within a day or two I would start taking the RX, but that was not necessary.
I've had to do it a second time, but did not add the salt or Comfrey and it still worked. I think it's the honey to be honest. Comfrey is said not to be safe internally, so perhaps not a good idea to squirt into the eye.
Anyway, thought I'd share and hope this is a help to someone.
I've had pink eye 3xs in the last 6 months. Mostly due to using an old eye liner pencil. The first time I didn't know what caused it. The 2nd time I figured it out. The third time was because an eye liner ordered from Amazon may have sat in a warehouse too long.
Anyway, I've tried the Apple cider vinegar, which usually works on most maladies. But it took longer than the iodine remedy did, so I've been using the Povidone iodine. About 20 drops in 2 oz of distilled water. Wet cotton ball with the solution and wipe over eyes so that it gets into the eyes and at the root of the lashes. It doesn't hurt. It may feel odd for a few minutes. But I use it every 3 hrs for 2 days and it completely clears up the infection.
