Woman applying eye drop solutionCustomer writes: I suffer from glaucoma and read that dissolving organic sulphur in water and applying the solution to my eyes may help. How much sulphur and water should I mix together for this purpose and how often should I apply it to my eyes during the day? Should I store my sulphur water bottle in the refrigerator or keep it at room temperature? Finally, does the sulphur water lose potency over time if not used immediately?

My response

When making your eye drop solution, dissolve 1 teaspoon of organic sulphur in 4 oz of hot water, then let the mixture cool down sufficiently before applying it directly onto your eyes. You can apply the sulphur water using an eyedropper or spray bottle as often as you wish. To get the most benefit, be sure to apply the sulphur water to your eyes on a regular basis.

To avoid applying cold water directly onto your eyes, I recommend keeping your eye drop solution of organic sulphur at room temperature. According to my supplier, Patrick McGean, home-mixed sulfur water solutions do not have an expiration date, as the mixture is unlikely to last longer than the product’s shelf life, which is officially three years from the manufacturing date but, in reality, is more like 10 years or more. In addition, McGean added that glaucoma can occur when your eyes are not draining properly. There is a section of the eyes’ drainage system located at the base of cornea that is called the trabecular meshwork. If the trabecular meshwork gets plugged, the drain will create back pressure which can cause problems with the optic nerve.

Organic sulphur dissolved in water transports oxygen across the avascular membranes of the corneal cells. The sulphur then leaves by way of the trabecular meshwork.

    Will the organic sulphur eye drops react with the Latanoprost and Timoptic that I use for my glaucoma?

      Per my supplier, Patrick McGean, organic sulfur water in the form of eyedrops or spray can be used any time with no interference with your glaucoma drops.

    I received your comment back however, can you please clarify— I know the powder/crystals have a long shelf life, but once it is added to water for an eye drop solution, doesn’t it lose potency? Are you saying it stays full strength for days? How many days would you estimate? Thanks for clarifying-

      Clara, I don’t have feedback from my supplier, Patrick McGean, regarding the potential loss of potency, only that users like yourself will likely exhaust their spray bottles of sulfur water long before other compounds can form from the solution: Quote: “No expiration date on home-mixed sulfur solution which should not last long enough to grow anything, though we have tried. Sulfur water can be used as often as one wishes.”
