Survivalist: Natural Home Treatments for Eye Infections & Injuries
My dog had some bacterial infection in her eyes yesterday! I did a quick survey of what I had on hand and put some colloidal silver drops in her eyes. This morning, I rinsed her eyes and cleaned them with a rinsing + storing contact lens solution. I got the contact lens rinsing and storing solution just for the purpose of having infection-fighting irrigation solution to use for eye and ear injuries. I put some more silver eye drops in her eyes today. They seem to be clearing up.

I think that between the colloidal silver eye drops and irrigating, cleaning her eyes with the disinfecting contact lens rinsing & storage solution since yesterday, her eyes are almost all better.

Does anyone else have any info or suggestions about natural healing of infected eyes? I guess you would never want to put Grapefruit Seed Extract (GSE) or oil of oregano in your eyes!

But does anyone know about other natural disinfectants that would be good for ophthalmic applications? Like how irritating garlic extract or olive leaf extract might me?

Does anyone have info about natural ophthalmic herbs and treatments?

castor oil

Thanks for the tip! It looks as if castor oil is use in ophthalmic treatments to help buffer and protect the surface of the eye.

Castor oil drops safely treat meibomian gland dysfunction

Chiba, Japan--Low-concentration homogenized castor oil eye drops seem to be an effective and safe treatment for meibomian gland dysfunction, a major cause of lipiddeficiency dry eye, according to Eiki Goto, MD.

"Noninflamed obstructive meibomian gland dysfunction is the major cause of lipid tear deficiency or evaporative dry eye and recently has attracted attention as a cause of ocular discomfort.

"Meibomian gland dysfunction causes a decreased lipid supply, which in turn leads to increased tear evaporation, decreased tear stability, loss of lubrication, and damage to ocular surface ...

I've used it for scratches in the cornea and inside lids, and also for an eye infection.

Supposedly they put it in the eyes of hunting dogs when they get scratched.
But I wouldn't know about that, none of my dogs ever worked for a living, lol.

Be sure to rinse your eyes thoroughly twice a day with saline solution.

For some time now I've found long transparent threads in my eyes, I flush with saline and pull them out until there are no more - twice a day. Don't know what causes that but best to rinse.

Update: I've found that in 2000 the FDA approved silver eye drops for dogs. The silver in this case was not colloidal but a silver salt (silver sulfadiazine).

I did go to the drug store asking for anti-biotic ophthalmic ointment but was told one has to have a prescription for it.

My dog's eyes infections are doing well!

They cleared up dramatically on the first day I started putting the colloidal silver eye drops in them. But then I didn't continue to put them in, and a small amount of green film returned to her eyes. I started the silver eye drops back up and her eyes appear infection-free. I'll continue to put drops in 2-3 times a day for the next 2 days.
