Hi all, Not sure if I've mentioned how much better my eyes are now since
changing to bicarbonate of soda instead of baby shampoo. It has been several weeks even months since I changed and they have been so so much better although not 100%. Differences I have noticed no more grittiness which used to drive me mad. Less sore and minimal crusting flaking. I use about 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon dissolved in half a beaker of cooled boiled water. After hot compresses I use cotton buds to thoroughly clean rims and around eyelashes and then use a cotton wool pad dipped in the solution over the whole eye lid. I still have light senstivity but have always had that for years although not so bad now and not helped by 2 cataract surgeries in 2 years. I have not tried using
eye make up again or though I would love to as I still have to use eye drops for dry eyes during the day. It is worth a try to anyone finding shampoo stings or is too harsh. Good luck let me know if anyone finds
this a part solution to their symptoms.
