So I have had cornea erosion problems for at least 2-2 1/2 years. I believe it started because I moved to an area where there is TONS of pollution.
I had to go to the emergency room the first time I felt pain & it was terrible.
They then referred me to an eye specialist & of course her solution after only 5 minutes of talking to me was, spend $1,000 which I don’t have & to do surgery. I said NO WAY!
She & the hospital wanted me to use chemical drops which I did off & on, but of course that doesn’t solve the problem & I don’t like chemicals. Their solution was to mask the problem.
While I eventually had a few months of peace, eventually things started to get worse. I would wake up in the middle of my sleep crying out in pain. At first when it got bad I couldn’t see clearly for about 2 hours after I woke up. Then things got sooo bad, it would take 5 hours for my eye to see clearly. By the time I moved to another area things were sooo bad, it was taking 2 days for me to be able to see. I was very scared I was going to lose my eye sight in that one eye.
Early on I had been using eye bright which is an herb for the eyes. Unfortunately I was ignorant & not thinking clearly. I had used loose tea since that’s what I had my cupboard. Even though I strained the eye bright tea, tiny bits of the tea would still float around in the tea & when I went to soak a napkin in it & squeeze the tea in my eye, I’m sure those bits went into my eye. Not smart! It probably made things worse.
Then I eventually figured out they sold eye bright in tea bags. There are only 2 companies I know of who sell it that way. Here is the first company that sells eye bright tea.
After that I started folding the napkin into a little square, soaking it in the eye bright tea & placing it on my eye. For a little while that helped the eye attacks after I woke up in pain in the middle of the night. Then because eventually that stopped helping, I had to put the soaked square on my eye when going to bed, but eventually that wasn’t helping either.
Then one day I talked to someone who studies herbs. He recommended carrot & aloe juice. Literally putting it into the eye. It helps with eye infections, but my cornea erosion isn’t an eye infection.
I didn’t do the carrot juice, but I did start taking fresh aloe, cutting off a piece, cutting it open & then I wiped it over my eye (with my lid closed of course). I didn’t juice it as I didn’t want it to go to waste or go bad quickly. The first day I did it, it burned a bit, so I was a little worried.
I did this several times a day over a week’s time, & I haven’t woken up in pain since. I was shocked that this solved the problem because I love aloe vera & usually always have a plant in my house if they don’t die on me. It’s just amazing what this plant will do.
I searched high & low for an all natural solution to the cornea erosion & never found one, so if you also have cornea erosion, I hope this all natural remedy helps you.
