Colloidal Silver For Eye Ailments


Proven to be effective against viruses and bacteria, colloidal silver can be used safely in the eyes, to manage a range of eye ailments.

Description, Symptoms & Uses

Eye ailments may present as an inflammation of the conjunctiva – the membrane that lines the eyelid and wraps around to cover most of the white of the eye.

The eyes may appear swollen and bloodshot; they are often itchy and irritated.

Because the infected membrane is often filled with pus, the eyelids are apt to stick together after being closed for an extended period.


Factors that can contribute to eye ailements include bacterial infection, virus, injury to the eye, allergies, and exposure to substances that are irritating to the eye, such as fumes, smoke, contact lens solutions, chlorine from swimming pools, chemicals, makeup, or any other foreign substance that enters the eye.

“Pink eye” refers to a viral infection of the conjunctiva. These infections are especially contagious among children.

New-borns can be infected by bacteria in the birth canal. This condition is called ophthalmia neonatorum, and it must be treated immediately to preserve eyesight.

Foreign Body in the Eye

Definition: A scratchy and burning feeling of the eye may be caused by a dust particle or some other substance.
Causes: Working without using eye protection. Hot metal particles from a grinder, chemicals, household cleaning goods, windblown dust, woodworking particles or splashes enters the eye.
Immediate action: Do not rub the eye at all.  Flush out with copious clean running water.  Use an eye bath if available.  A strong magnet (rare earth type) can be used to remove metal particles easily.  Spray colloidal silver in eye to prevent infection.

If the condition persists:

  • tape the eye closed with some plaster to avoid blinking and thus scratching the eyeball surface.
  • visit your doctor.

We used to call it “pink eye” when I was still a lad!
My father used to get it and it was very bad.
Because it was infectious, a towel he didn’t share.
He would use an eye-bath with the very greatest care.

He used boracic powder. That’s all that he could find.
Thank God “conjunctivitis” did not make him go blind.
Today there’s something better. Now just a drop or two
Of our Colloidal Silver, will fix yours up for you!

Pink eye is contagious. Don’t spread it to your friends
Do not share your towels or flannels ‘til it ends.
Use Colloidal Silver three or four times every day
On the inner eye-lid. That’s a successful way,

To deal with this condition. Use Silver Gel or drops.
Often you will find that this is where the pink eye stops.
You could use an eye bath from your favourite Pharmacy.
The undiluted product should work successfully.

Colloidal Silver liquid in the eye bath should be right,
To take away discomfort and help you with your sight.
But if you’re having trouble and it doesn’t go away,
See your health practitioner! Don’t wait another day!
