9. Apple Cider Vinegar

For treating pink eye, apple cider vinegar is highly effective. The malic acid in unpasteurized apple cider vinegar works like an antimicrobial agent, which helps fight bacterial infections. It even helps remove germs and debris from the eyes to promote healing.

  1. Mix 1 teaspoon of raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar in a glass of filtered water.
  2. Dip a cotton ball in this solution.
  3. Use it to thoroughly wash the outside of the infected eye.
  4. Repeat every few hours for a few days.

10. Breast Milk

This remedy is highly effective and safe for getting rid of pink eye, especially in babies.

Breast milk contains certain antibodies, particularly immunoglobulin E, which prevents infection-causing bacteria from attaching to the mucosal surface of the eye. This in turn limits the growth of the bacteria, helping the infection heal quickly.

  1. Put a little breast milk into a cup.
  2. Using a clean eye dropper, put 2 or 3 drops of breast milk into the infected eye.
  3. Reapply every couple of hours or as needed.

Breast milk is effective in treating ear infections in babies, too.

Additional Tips

  • Splash cold water on your eyes a few times daily to strengthen your eyes.
  • You can use over-the-counter eye drops to relieve symptoms associated with infections.
  • Rinse your eyes with pure rosewater at least twice a day. You can also use rosewater as eye drops for instant relief from itching.
  • Dilute a small amount of tearless baby shampoo in 1 cup of water and use it to clean out any debris in or around the eye.
  • During an infection, avoid wearing lenses for several days.
  • Do not touch your infected eyes without washing your hands first.
  • Do not share towels or bedding with anyone to prevent spreading the infection.
  • Do not wear eye makeup and avoid sharing eye makeup or applicators when you have an eye infection.
  • Keep hand sanitizers, cleansers and anti-infective sprays handy and use them accordingly.
  • If the eye infection does not get better in a few days, consult your doctor.

  2. Try one drop of tea tree oil in a eye bath with warm saline solution . Use only on one eye at a time thoroughly rinsing out the eye bath each to to avoid cross infecting eyes . Tea tree oil is an amazing killer of bacterial infection . Use Only 1drop in each eye bath . Not more . Provide me with instant relief and infection cleared up after 1. day .

  3. In 2007, due to my Thyroid Graves Eye Disease, I had orbital decompression surgery done on both eyes. It was that it lose my vision. My eye pressure was so high the eyes were both dying, is what I was told. I had double vision and a left eyes that moved on it’s own. I do realize I need to see an eye doctor, with my work at this moment, I don’t have the extra time. Since my surgery, my vision has been restored as well as any other related issues I had with it. I am thinking I may just be having allergic reaction to some mascara. I can’t wait to try these remedies. Desperate! Thank you! I will let you know how it works out.

  4. Just used the saline solution to rinse my eyes and the swelling is reducing as I type. Thank you so much!! Can’t wait to try the other. I have been so miserable!

  5. If you are lucky enough to have access to a nursing mother, breast milk is one of the all-time best treatments for eye infections! Human breast milk is antiviral and antibacterial, and I have used it for eye irritations and infections in my babies/kids as well as myself and my animals (an old horse of ours in particular) for over 20 years. The infections clear up every time within 24 hours at most. Nursing mamas can squirt milk directly in the eyes of their nursing babies for immediate relief. Otherwise, put a small amount of breast milk in a sterile syringe or eye dropper and rinse infected eye. Try to leave as much milk in the eye as possible (don’t wipe with a tissue as this soaks the milk right up out of the eye). Do this a few times a day until infection and irritation clears.

  6. Lash extensions have my eyes itchy and looking like pink eye in both since Sunday. Benadryl has not helped. Trying hot compress, and saline solution now. Any more advice would be appreciated.
