Is there any possibility garlic water can be used as eye drops to cure
bacterial or viral eye infection?

In theory, garlic water would kill bacterial infections in the eyes but virus, not so much. The question is would using garlic water as eyedrops cause any damage to the eyes and the answer is that nobody knows for sure but we haven't heard any reports of any adverse reactions happening to people who have used garlic baths and gotten it into their eyes.

I do not know of any studies where garlic water being used for eye drops has been done nor have I heard of any anecdotal evidence.

I did a garlic bath once as part of a two step treatment for food poisoning I had caught; I used a garlic water enema to knock the bacteria out of the colon and a garlic water bath the next day to knock out discomfort in the upper abdominal area. The approach worked perfectly and acidophylus restored normal bowel function in a couple of days. The day after my garlic bath I felt better than I had ever felt before, that is one of several reasons why I am here discussing garlic and its uses.

During my garlic water bath I would take double handfuls of water and flood my face with it and would often get a little in my eyes and I do not recall any burning sensation or anything. Other people's reactions may be different and I certainly cannot recommend anyone put anything in their eyes. In fact, I don't recommend anything, all I do is discuss the known properties of garlic and let people decide for themselves what, if anything, to do.

Also in a garlic water bath, complete submersion often during the bath is recommended to kill staph in the hair and scalp and head area and no one has reported any problem with getting any into the eyes during these submersions so there has been plenty of potential exposure to problems but none reported so far.

In any event, as always, everyone is on their own when it comes to using alternative folk or herbal therapies. What we do here is discuss the results of the things we do to ourselves in seeking relief from our common enemy.

I have found garlic water baths to work for me and figured others might be interested in trying them on their own and several families have reported trying them and getting very good results.

Allicin has been shown in studies to still be an effective antimicrobial agent even when diluted to 1 to 250,000 so it really doesn't have to be strongly garlicky to work.

As fas as viruses go, crushed raw garlic or garlic water will stop cold sore or herpes outbreaks in their tracks and they clear up in only a few days but they still recur so it doesn't eliminate the herpes viruses from the system.

The only catch is that only garlic that has not been irradiated to keep it from sprouting will work; irradiated garlic has no health benefits. You can tell by pulling off a clove from a bulb and cut it open and look for a small growing sprout deep in its core and if you find one, it is good garlic and will work but if the clove has no tiny sprout, it has been irradiated and won't work.

A correction in my post above - the allicin in crushed raw garlic is effective against bacter to a dilution of one part of allicin to 125,000 parts of water, not 250,000.

Actually a garlic water enema or a series of them will kill off intestinal parasites.

I have my own experience with garlic water today. I came down with a
sorethroat, cough,and eye infection at same time Friday afternoon.
The bottom gland of the eye discharged a yellowish sticky fluid. Once
dried up, it worked like glue. Saturday AM, I could not open my eye.
have to walk blind into the bathroom to used water to clear it. Went
to urgent care Saturday AM and the doctor gave me Azithromycyn
treatmant and one pill of Pednisolone daily. Tried that but the eye
infection hardly improved. Then Sunday afternoon, my friend gave me a
bottle of Tobramycyn eyedrop. Tried that but did not help. Monday AM,
I called my PCP but they put me on Tuesday appointment. Helpless, I
turned into crushed garlic mixed with water and a dash of salt. With
a few drops on the eye, I felt a burning sensation for 5-10 minutes,
then the eye starts to clear and I felt relief. I tried that every 2
hrs, and by afternoon, my eye almost turned normal. So I called and
canceled my doctor appt.
