Chris, if you think the MSM drops will work what percentage solution would
you recommend and would you add anything else to the solution? I can see
quite well out of the right eye but I can only see about half the distance
that I can see out of my left eye.
Jim, use 15% solution in contact lens saline solution every hour or so and
make sure you don't contaminate it also make small quantities to keep fresh.
This was used on injured rabbit eyes which developed cataract - am not sure
how well it will work on humans. Also you could supplement with Occudyine
follow instructions on bottle.
I have used 15% myself and it seems OK, The saline solution would be a little
more soothing but I did not find distill water solution harsh on my eyes.
However, the following is extracted form Earl Mindell's Booklet "THE
MSM MIRACLE" page 43 reproduced below. A good source of info on MSM
is at: http://www.oralchelation.com/msm/msm0.htm
By Earl Mindell
Think of your eyeball as a balloon full of water, but instead of being rubber,
it is a protein membrane. Optical tissue normally allows fluids to flow
through the membrane wall which acts like a filter, cleaning out harmful
particles, keeping your eyes clear and your vision good as it allows nutrients
to permeate. But should the membranes become tough like leather, the fluids
are trapped and particles begin to accumulate. If this buildup continues,
your vision will seem as if you're looking through frosted glass, a condition
known as cataracts.
When eyedrops containing the proper amount of MSM are applied, the membrane
becomes permeable, and this has reversed the problem. It is also important
that the eye remain flexible so that the muscles can alter its contour and
focus as needed. In the event that its membranes and muscles become rigid
and tough, the eye will not be able to focus properly, resulting in blurred
vision. The MSM in eyedrops soothes and softens the membranes, permitting
fluids to pass through the optical tissues to stabilize the pressure, repair
any damage, clear up red spots and bloodshot vessels, and remove floaters
and other particles in the eye.
In one case, a 15 percent solution of MSM in isotonic saline was a soothing
treatment for the eye following accidental injury due to particulate matter
in the eye. In a test with an irritated eye of a rabbit, the eye cleared
when treated every hour with a 10 percent aqueous solution of MSM. Be assured,
the concentration in the MSM eye drops you get will be sufficient. Follow
the instructions on the label.
As noted earlier, the B vitamins in general and the sulfur-related amino
acids and compounds are vital to maintaining healthy eyes. Specifically,
we've learned that glucosamine is the starting material for the eyes, that
glutathione promotes good eye health and low levels accompany almost every
type of eye disease. We also know that people suffering from the eye disease
retinitis pigmentosa show reduced levels of taurine within the eye."
Typical MSM eye drops are around 1% from what I hear. Is 15% safe?

Here is how to make the cataract solution form MSM. Just remember to use
the pure powder. You can make the 15% solution by mixing 1.5 grams of MSM
in 10 ml of water (two teaspoons). Its best to make small batches for freshness.
Use 2 to 4 times daily.
Thanks. Maybe we could make the solution in 5ppm colloidal silver as a preservative.
Great idea! Another would be to buy saline solution for contact lenses (
this has preservative already in it) and mix the MSM in it. For those who
do not have access to colloidal silver. Also not sure if MSM will react
with silver... Think it would be best to go the inert route first than check
out the CS idea.
Just a note to say as a 6-month subscriber to the CS maillist, MSM mixed
with CS works just fine, in fact, it's recommended for use in an inhaler
for those with respiratory ailments. The ppm of CS doesn't matter much,
since it's difficult to control when making it yourself. Most folks make
it in the 5-15ppm range.

According to Julian Whitaker, N-Acetyl CARNOSINE is effective to reverse
100% of senile cataracts (ordinary) and 80% of a more serious cataract condition.
I went to Life Extension and am currently using their "birght Eyes"
formula - with N-Acetl Carnosine.
