    Coconut Oil Eyedrops

    Hi Everyone I thought I would Inform you that throughout the rest of the World, they are making Leaps and bounds for Dry Eye.

    I know coconut oil sounds silly putting it in your eyes, But they have discovered if its safe enough to eat, its safe enough to use on your skin or eyes. In the Form of at Sterilized Eye drop solution that is. I have also seen in some government forums that there already have been trials on other types of oils for eye drops. They have proven what is safe and not safe for the Eye's Mucous membranes.

    Already some Clinical trials are being done on the Use of Coconut Oil in Eye drops in the Philippines You can find their progress here.

    They have already shown that Tear break up time is Greater than current Medicine on the market.
    It will be interesting to see if these ever get approved by the FDA.

    Sincerely, Meibomian Gland Man

    Does coconut oil work for you, MGman? I tried it as a makeup remover and it dried my eyes out for hours.

    This is the MCT oil that I reference in the goop section. MCT oil is highly refined coconut oil which might make it less effective that the unprocessed kind. I can attest that Vitamin E oil is extremely effective!
