Saline Solution

I work with children and have spent a small fortune over the years on those tiny tubes of prescription cream. Then a co-worker from England told me he never heard of anyone using a prescription for eye infection. He said everyone in England just washes with salt water at the first sign of infection. Sure enough, I've staved off a couple of eye infections by rinsing my eye liberally with my normal saline solution. (Do it in the shower, it's messy.) The first sign, for me, is the runny eye. It runs clear the first day or so and then gets thicker and whitish. Before it gets any further, use the saline to wash away the infection!

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

When my daughter was young I read in a home remedy book to mix 1 part baby shampoo to 10 parts warm water. Use a cotton ball to clean outside of eye to remove mucus from lashes, then numerous times each day wash eye with same solution, warm is easier on the eye. It worked on my daughter each time. We now use it for the grandchildren when the need arises.

Lemon Juice

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!


Black Tea Bag

I have suffered for many years with painfull pink eye or conjunctvitis and have taken so many prescriptions to just have another reoccurance. I went on the web and found a cure that is so simple and cheap. Take just a cheap black tea bag and steep in lukewarm water. Then take the tea bag and place it on the infected eye for 15-30 minutes. I did this for 2 days and I have been pain free and red eye free for over a year. I was diagnosed with Sjorn's Disease and my eyes were so red & inflamed that I was embarrassed to be seen in public. This is truly a natural cure.

I thank God, your website and Deborah from Texas for providing the information about using black tea bags for curing conjunctivitis. I awoke one morning with horrific pain in my right eye. It was so sensitive to any amount of light that I had to keep it closed. I immediately went to Earth Clinic and read Deborah's cure using black tea bags. I used the black tea bags as Deborah described. However, the only difference is that I also used an eyedropper to put 5 or 6 drops of the tea from my coffee mug in my eye after using the tea bag as a compress. I used this process three times within a 24-hour period and the results were truly amazing. Abolutely no pain and the redness was completely gone. Thank you, folks. God bless you all.

I have had very red irritated eyes for the last 2 days and finally realized it must be conjunctivitis. I immediately went to your excellent web site and read about using black tea bags for a swift recovery. I was amazed that after following the directions on your site, my eyes were as good as new within 15 minutes! Thank you, as always, for the fine information you make available to all of us!

As a child I had a horrible case of conjunctivitis. For over a month, I suffered from home with absolutely no change no matter how much eye drops or medication the doctor's prescribed me. My family finally took our yearly trip to the beach and after a day, my eye infection was completely gone. When we returned and returned to the doctor for a checkup, my pediatrician chuckled and said, oh "You went to the beach, the ocean clears that right up!" My mother could NOT believe it. We surely would have hightailed it to the beach a week into the conjunctivitis had we known! As a result of my month long infection, I had permanent vision damage and had to have membraned PEELED off my eyelids. I am just thankful the beach trip and swimming in the ocean happened when it did, otherwise, I might have had even greater eye damage. I'm lucky I only have to wear glasses/contacts for the rest of my life.

I had pink eye and cold at the same time. I tried hydrogen Peroxide in ear stuff (3%) in my ears in 10 min also sniffed peroxide into my nose it was painful but I wanted to ged rid of cold completely then gargled with cayenne pepper with camomile tea after I had some of them. 5 hours later no more itchy throat, and I felt much better. For pink eye I tried tea method it was fine and got rid of some of redness but what worked for me was wash it with bottled water and salt. my pink eye got instantly became clear!

I have had a very mild on again off again case of Conjuctivitis for about three years. In the last three months with the cold it had gotten worse. (I moved from southern California to a state that experienced real winters). I hate over the counter medication or chemicals of any kind so I came to my favorite website and read a few of the remedies. I decided on a Sea Salt remedy. I got a 16 oz bottle of spring water, warmed it then added 2 tablespoons of Sea Salt and shook it up. I place a soft folded towel on the bathroom sink slightly over the edge and laid my head on the towel. I slowly poured the mixture into the corner of my eye until I instinctively knew to stop then I did the other eye for good measure. Once I rinsed my face I could feel my sinues very clearly! I was breathing and could FEEL it like I have not in a long while. I felt some drainage in the sinues and I guess that is way, not sure but what I do know is that my eye feels better than it has in two months! The thin skin around the eye was breaking. I intend on applying my solution on the hour and the same for the next day if needed but I do not think I will need to. Thanks Earthclinic!

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 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!

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.

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


Castor Oil

I have used Castor Oil many times for treating Pink Eye, put 1-2 drops in each eye two times a day, eyes will get better with in one day but keep using for 4-5 days. Always treat both eyes. After putting in eyes they will blur some from oil but will not sting at all and will be very soothing, castor oil is antimicrobal and a very healing oil.
