For the folks who aren't familiar with demodex and how it relates to DES:
As the article I gave the link to above says, tea tree oild (TTO) has been known to kill demodex and I've read many reports, including one on this forum, of people getting completely cured of DES after dealing with the demodex problem, but I've also seen reports of scratched corneas and even blindness caused by application of TTO.
I've, for a long time now, had strong reason to believe my DES is caused by demodex and for a long period of time I've been diligently going over the whole internet trying to find info on this in hopes of finding another way of killing the demodex, because I'm not prepared to accept even a one in a million millions chance of going blind. I've collected a huge amount of links web pages containing info and I've compiled a huge list of chemicals and such that reportedly can kill demodex.
The problem is, because of some changes in my life, I'm no longer able to find time to deal with this, but I've collected such a vast amount of info that's been, for a few months now, sitting on my computer because I've no time to go over it.
I'm hoping I can get help from other people who have the same problem or suspect demodex might be their problem.
As I said, the amount of info is huge and unorganized and probably there's a lot of duplications. I'm going to be dumping it all here and hopefully it'll get some folks interested and we can go about compiling a list of stuff that can kill these things and than finding out what's safe to apply to the eyes and what's not.
