If you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time, you’ll know I’m really big on using and testing DMSO-based protocols. I have popular protocols for hemorrhoids, rectal stricture and intestinal strictures – all using DMSO as a primary, active component.

I also find the idea of using DMSO in eyedrops particularly interesting – and not just because my father is an eye doctor! Once again, it is DMSO’s ability to penetrate tissue rapidly (and carry other substances into the tissues) that makes it so interesting as an eye treatment.

What I don’t know (personally) at this point, is how effective it is, how these solutions feel (energetically as well as physically) in the eye, and which concentration to use.

Based on my experience with DMSO thus far – it’s efficacy and potency – I would be inclined to start testing eyedrops at a 2% DMSO solution and gradually work up from there.

However, some Internet research reveals that people are already using much stronger formulas than that, with supposedly good results:

Option A:  40% DMSO Saline Eyedrops

I have to say, when I first read about someone using 40% DMSO in their eyes, I thought they were stark raving mad. Then I found this popular blog selling 40% solution eyedrops in their shop, with a number of good reviews underneath! And no one reports screaming in pain or their eye burning out of it’s socket – go ahead, take a look… A couple of the reviews also say the drops are reducing their floaters and making their vision sharper.

Option B:  20% DMSO Saline Eyedrops

Many online sources also recommend a 20% solution, like this one.

Option C:  6.25% DMSO Combination Solution Eyedrops

Most reasonable (to my mind) is this formula, based on the work of Dr. Robert Rowen which combines DMSO with glutathione and vitamin C. So the proportions are:

DMSO – 6.25%
Glutathione – 1.25%
Vitamin C – 1.25%

The rest would be sterile saline. And you can have a good compounding pharmacy make these up for you. But depending on legalities, they may not be able to add the DMSO to the so
