I use it for dry eyes. I need glasses for distance and for reading. When I use castor oil I do not need glasses for distance anymore. I been using it daily for about a week and it works better than any eyes drops or anything else I have tried. They say if you use everyday for 90 days that you can get rid of cataracts. Well I have mild cataracts and I am going to see if it works to dissolve cataracts. Either way I will continue to use because it improves my vision. Use only Organic Cold Pressed Castor Oil, certified by USDA and is guaranteed to be authentic, pure, natural, and hexane free. You can get it from Amazon or health food store.
UPDATE: 12/26/18 Castor Oil is wonderful to use and I used it for a very long time successfully with great results. But for the last 3 weeks I have been taking Lutein (marigold extract) 25 mg and Zeaxanthin (marigold extract) 5 mg twice daily and my dry eyes are gone and my blurred vision is gone. I no longer have to use castor oil. I still need glasses to read but I no longer need glasses for distance anymore. God sent!
Sometimes it first what will happen is that we'll be a lot of cloudiness in the eyes in the morning according to everything I've been reading.. maybe you should keep trying and not give up but there's also another product people swear by for cataracts and it's called Grandma's Bright Eyes formula
Will not harm your eyes. I have been using it for almost 3 months and I can really see the difference. Be patient, it works and will not damage your eyes. Make sure it is Organic, cold pressed, and hexane free.
Shirley Roddy I see your post is from 2 weeks ago, but I recently watched 2 different videos about using castor oil for dry eyes. Here are the titles in case you have not seen them yet: 'I cured my Dry Eyes by Castor oil' by Dat Tran Van.... and, 'How TO CURE Dry Eyes: My emotional true story !' by Soha Noha........ Maybe one of them can answer any questions you have :)
If you go back and read some of the other comments here it looks like some people are claiming that but I still want to ask some of them questions but they haven't gotten back with me yet ...I only just sent the questions now
Sandra Hojnacki , Sandra... do you know John Hojnacki from Swissvale, Penna? He was my college roomate and a Great Guy. I believe he married a girl named Peg. can you email me please. RamboNK6@gmail.com
My results have been good. The bottle says to refrigerate the oil. Keep this in mind. Probably not for everyone. You can also make a eyewash from the herb Eyebrigh. So you can take the herb Eyebrigh and use it as a eyewash. You attack the problem from the inside as well as the surface of the eye. Eyebrigh can be found at any reputable health food store.
Patti Winn I would think castor oil would do the same for dogs as it does for us. Just be sure it is hexane free! organic cold pressed castor oil is what you need to use! Always buy it in an amber bottle.
This has been on JB Bardot. It is an older post but caster oil, to be specific, organic cold pressed, has been used for years to restore 20/20 vision. I was getting floaters so I tried it! Has taken a while but improvement is happening every day!
+gardensofthegods I wasn't saying the castor oil made things worse. What I meant was, it didn't help, so things are getting worse on their own. I went back to using Eyebright drops that I make myself at home. The eye doctor said a couple months ago the cataracts haven't gotten any worse now, but they aren't any better yet, either. He didn't know I was using drops, and he's still pushing the surgery which I do not want. I'm looking into the Bates Method, which not only improves sight, but can reverse cataracts, too.
This has been a while since you wrote this and I'm wondering if you could give an update because I have some pretty bad floaters and are you saying that the castor oil has really made them go away ? Can you please tell me also if you had any other vision problems as I need glasses and I am so sick of it.. so are you saying that is actually will reverse eventually the need for reading glasses too ?
+Lavender Dorie it's been a year since you said the castor oil has made your vision more cloudy.. I'm really sorry to hear that that's got to be really aggravating and depressing... your message was a year ago and I'm wondering if the situation with your eyesight has improved... can you please tell me if the cataracts are reversing and if so what you used and what was the protocol ?
I've had floaters for decades, and cataracts for about 5 or 6 years. I've tried Can C drops, and just tried castor oil for about 6 months. At first, I did have the little crystals around my eyes in the morning, but my vision has not improved, and in fact, the cloudiness is getting worse.
It's been a year since you were on here saying you were starting to see great benefits using castor oil in your eyes for the cataracts.. can you please tell me what brand you used and how often..? But can you please tell me if you had any other vision problems at all and if any of those were reversed also please ?
Can you please tell me if you decided to try the castor oil for the vision problems and if so could you please give me an update and how much It reversed it .. I am in the earliest stages of cataracts and and thinking of trying this treatment here .
