Conjunctivitis results when bacteria build up on the surface of the eye. It can actually change the white of your eye, causing it to swell and turn pinkish red. If the inflammation is not reduced, the eyesight can be permanently damaged.Structured silver can help when you apply two or three drops of liquid structured silver directly into the eyes one to four times a day. Structured silver gel can be placed directly into the eye where the gel will stay in place longer. Drink two teaspoons twice a day for one week or until the problem is remedied. This will usually remedy the problem within the first two to three days. Additional products that help are bilberry, eyebright, and lutein.
