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.

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.
Sea kelp will get rid of pink eye. I had 5 steers, all with pink eye. Took them to the vet, he gave them a shot of something in the eye (very painful) took them home, 4 got better but 1 got pink eye again. Took him back to the vet and he gave him the treatment again and said if this doesn't work, then he will have to go blind. It did not work. My friend suggested that I give them sea kelp, which I did. I gave it to them free choice and within 5 days his pink eye was completely gone. For livestock, I bought in 50 lbs bags from a company in Maine. From what I understand, pinkeye is a lack of minerals.
I did see my optometrist and he made the diagnosis of keratitis conjunctivitis in my eyes. Prescribed Tobradex drops, but I don't know that I want to go that route and it is very expensive. I have been treating myself with collodial silver and it helps, but does not completely take it away. Does anybody know of any natural or home-made remedies?
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.
