Remedies are included her for conjunctivitis and blepharitis.
Conjunctivitis is an inflammation of the mucous membrane that covers and protects the front of the eye, and which also lines the lid.
Blepharitis is an inflammation of the eyelids themselves.
Eyes are the most delicate of organs; seek medical advice if you are worried or if an inflammation has not cleared up after a few days of treatment. Bathe the eyes frequently and wash your hands immediately afterwards to prevent infection spreading.
Conjunctivitis has been treated by homeopathy.
Conjunctivitis requires detailed specific prescribing of the "right" homeopathic remedy. Trial and error or shotgun prescribing does not work, and therefore we don't recommend self-medication. In fact, self-medication will complicate the overall symptom picture.
