DOES COLLOIDAL SILVER HELP EYE INFECTIONS?
Eye infections can be triggered by viruses, bacteria, fungi, allergies or any other irritants that enter any part of the eyeball or its immediate area. People who wear contact lenses are at a higher risk to eye infections due to the reduced oxygen reaching their corneas, and bacterial or fungal accumulate when lenses are not appropriately disinfected and cleaned.
An eye infection can, more often than not, result in itchy, watery, swollen and red eyes. In more severe infections, there may be discharge and crusting. When an eye infection attacks the eye’s tear glands, its consequence is often an inflammatory condition which ends up blocking the eye’s tear drainage. More severe eye infections, if left untreated, may lead to vision loss.
There are several ways your eyes can become infected or irritated. Some common eye conditions include:
- Conjunctivitis known as pink eye.
- Dry eye: Which occurs when your tear ducts can’t lubricate the eye properly.
- Blepharitis: This is a condition that involves the eyelid becoming crusted and inflamed.
- Keratitis, an infection of the cornea.
Colloidal silver is potent to control any eye infection, yet it’s gentle on healthy cells. Colloidal silver terminates the cell wall of harmful microbes (pathogens) through catalytic oxidation. It then enters the cell and binds with the pathogen’s DNA, stopping them from being able to replicate. Without replication, the infection is curbed and cannot spread.
Colloidal silver help to treat eye problems like allergies, inflammation and tear staining. Because it doesn’t sting, it can be dropped directly into the eyes. Colloidal silver is a real home remedy for pink eye. It’s it has a very long shelf life, and it’s very effective.
Many times we’ve had the start of an irritated or itchy eye during cold and flu season, and a drop or two of colloidal silver in each eye sets things right. This can be repeated every couple of hours the symptoms return. Often they don’t. Depending on the harshness of your eye infection, the proper use of colloidal silver could clear up the infection within a day or two.
Many who have used colloidal silver for their eye infections were amazed and reported how quickly it could stop the infections. It is particularly beneficial for treating eye infections such as conjunctivitis, keratitis, blepharitis and stye. With any of the eye infections mentioned above, you can use colloidal silver as an eye drop instead of prescription antibiotic eye drop.
