The term "opthalmia" (Gr. "ophthalmos," eye) is generally used to describe a severe inflammation of the eye, which includes the conjunctiva. Most mild to severe infections of the eye involve the conjunctiva, in which case the term conjunctivitis is used. The more common layman's term is "pink eye."
It is this later class of infections we wish to focus on -- and we wish to point out that our discussions do not incorporate "neonatorum" or other infant or child forms of this infection. This is because it is our preference that our products not be used in pediatric applications without the involvement of professional medical practitioners. All the customers who have used the protocol at right in connection with their conjunctivitis were adults.
All other forms, microbial in etiology with little exception, would pertain to our discussions at right.
For more specific information on conjunctivitis alone, see the Conjunctivitis page in the Ailments section.
or "pink eye" - read "Fundamentals" (left))
phthalmia has a number of causes (read "Fundamentals"
at left), but the most common forms are viral or bacterial infections
of the conjunctiva - called "conjunctivitis." This condition, also
commonly known as "pink eye," is usually treated with a topical
Our approach is directed at pathogenic micro-organisms that cause the most common forms of opthalmia of the conjunctiva and cornea. In other forms, this is standard, orthodox treatment: Erythromycin opthalmic ointment is standard to attack the Neisseria gonorrhoeae or Chlamydia trachomatis that are behind the majority of neonatorum opthalmia cases. Likewise, 1% silver nitrate is used as a prophylaxis for chlamydial conjunctivitis - with tetracycline or sulfonamides employed if the disease develops in earnest.
It has been our observation (though limited and still being investigated) that H3O solution, with pH adjusted to 2.0 (non-caustic), will eliminate the organisms that cause eye infection, without irritation to the eyes (aside from healing response sensations). This is made possible by the fact that H3O can hold very acidic pH ranges that kill a very wide range of micro-organisms WITHOUT being caustic or irritating. It has physical properties that defy conventional chemical explanations. (You can take our pure H3O hydronium at pH 0.3 and combine it with our super-alkaline HRx which has a pH of 13.8, testing both first -- and get NO exothermic reaction when you mix them. This isn't supposed to happen.)
It is important to follow instructions for using H3O, but with proper preparation, you only need to apply using a half dropperful, two or three times, on the average. If you have questions, you can always email us.
