Colloidal Silver for Macular Degeneration?
Can colloidal silver help heal or stop the progress of eyesight diseases, such as macular degeneration?
One lady, a registered nurse, is convinced that silver is dramatically helping her 77 year old husband who had been diagnosed two and a half years ago with Age-Related Macular Degeneration. She says the degeneration of his eyesight has not progressed at all since she started putting two drops of colloidal silver into each of his eyes daily.
We’ll take a quick look at her story. And we’ll also take a look at a recent clinical study into silver’s effectiveness against retinal angiogenesis, which can lead to Age-Related Macular Degeneration and ultimately to blindness. And we’ll see why many researchers are now calling nanosilver “a trove for retinal therapies”…
Hi, Steve Barwick here, for The Silver Edge…
Here’s what reader Marie P., a registered nurse, wrote about her rather interesting experience using colloidal silver in the eyes of her 77 year old husband who has been diagnosed with age-related macular degeneration:
“Two 1/2 years ago my 77 year old husband was diagnosed with Age Related Macular Degeneration.
Doctor told him to start taking OTC AREDS 2, which is pricey, and return in 6 months. [Editor’s note: OTC AREDS is an over-the-counter multi-vitamin and mineral formula for the eyes, used by people with macular degeneration.]
Just before the 6 months was up, I decided to start putting 2 drops of colloidal silver in each eye every pm. He went for the 6 month checkup while we continued the silver.
When he returned in 6 more months, there was no change and he had to return in a year. He went two days ago for that checkup, and again STILL NO CHANGE! Dr. told him to continue AREDS 2. My husband told him he had not taken it in over a year!
Dr: Then what are you doing?
Husband: Putting colloidal silver drops in my eyes every pm.
Dr: Never heard of it. Where do you get it?
Husband: My wife makes it.
Dr: I’ll have to look that up. Keep doing what you’re doing. Come back in a year.
I seriously doubt he will look it up, but I am convinced that the colloidal silver has arrested the progression of his ARMD. And who knows? Maybe it can even reverse it some, especially in advanced cases! What a blessing colloidal silver and my colloidal silver generator are!”
Now, you’ve got to admit, that’s a fascinating testimonial. Of course, I have to warn you upfront that testimonials are not “proof” of effectiveness for any medical condition. Only clinical studies constitute proof. And truth be told, there’s very little published clinical research on using colloidal silver for eyesight diseases.
However, there is a very interesting overview of clinical studies on the use of nanosilver in the eyes. This overview was published in 2016 in the Journal of Controlled Release, and titled Silver Nano – a Trove for Retinal Therapies.
In that study overview researchers looked at using silver nanoparticles as a treatment for an eyesight condition known as pathological retinal angiogenesis (aka retinal neovascularization) consisting of abnormal growth of blood vessels in the eyes which ultimately leads to irreversible blindness.
What the researchers discovered was that applying nanosilver to the eyes reduced the downstream signaling pathways that lead to retinal angiogenesis. In other words, it helped halt the progression of the condition which otherwise would lead to blindness.
The researchers stated “Gaining the ability to control retinal angiogenesis does not only benefit clinical therapy, but also has an enormous scientific appeal.” They went on to say:
“Silver nanoparticles due to their potent characteristics such as anti-permeability, anti-tubules formation, anti-vasculature development, bear out them as an effective molecule in inhibiting angiogenesis and also capable of inducing apoptosis by altering the caspase-3 activity leading DNA fragmentation…”
In other words, clinical testing has demonstrated that nanosilver has the ability to inhibit the process called angiogenesis in which abnormal blood vessels form in front of the retina, blocking vision, which ultimately leads to blindness in people afflicted with it.
And the silver also causes abnormal blood cells from retinal angiogenesis to go into a state of apoptosis (i.e., cellular suicide) so they can no longer spread over the eye.
The researchers concluded:
“Our studies on the effect of silver nanoparticles over angiogenesis make a significant impact in treating common causes of blindness such as PDR [i.e. proliferative diabetic retinopathy] and AMD [i.e., age-related macular degeneration].
Further studies on size controlled effect of silver nanoparticles and other down streaming pathways, by which they themselves act as a drug, by controlled release and targeting, will surely signify the role of silver nanoparticles for effective and economic treatments in ocular therapies.”
The researchers concluded their research by stating their belief that the use of silver nanoparticles will make a “significant impact” on the treatment of common causes of blindness such as Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy and Age-Related Macular Degeneration.
So there you have it.
A small handful of anecdotal accounts suggest (but do not prove) that just a few drops of colloidal silver used in the eyes daily can help stop the progression of Age-Related Macular Degeneration. And at least some clinical research backs up that assertion, particularly where it pertains to Age-Related Macular Degeneration caused by pathological retinal angiogenesis, or abnormal blood cell formation over the retina.
The researchers behind this study even call nanosilver a “trove for retinal therapies” in the title of their clinical overview, and a “boon to ocular therapies” in their abstract!
Naturally, more research is needed on this subject. For example, there’s not been enough research conducted to determine how long one can safely put silver into one’s eyes without experiencing side effects. Nor has a correct daily dosage yet been determined from clinical research.
But it’s extremely exciting to see this development taking place, clinically, because the preliminary research demonstrates silver to be a viable treatment for one of the leading causes of blindness in developed countries, which is pathological retinal angiogenesis, otherwise known as retinal revascularization.
Learn More About Using Colloidal Silver in the Eyes
Of course, for decades people have been using colloidal silver in their eyes to help stop eye infections such as styes, Pink Eye and others. In the article below, you’ll learn more about how and why people use colloidal silver in their eyes from time-to-time:
There’s also a short video demonstrating how people use colloidal silver in their eyes, at this link:
And it’s important to note that this is not the first time colloidal silver has been recommended for other types of eye problems, either, such as cataracts and glaucoma. See the article below for more information on this controversial usage of colloidal silver:
As you can see, colloidal silver is used by many for a variety of eye problems. Again, while the clinical literature is lacking, anecdotal accounts abound.
One Final Important Thought…
If you’re new to colloidal silver usage and are wondering where to buy it, it’s important to know that you can find it in just about any well-stocked health food store in America.
But it can be extremely expensive. In fact, because it works so well against numerous forms of infection and disease, colloidal silver has the highest price mark-up of any nutritional supplement in existence.
The amount of actual silver in a four-ounce bottle of colloidal silver is about five to 12 cents worth. (Yes, I said five to twelve cents.) Yet the manufacturers mark that up about 60,000%, charging a whopping $20 or $30 per bottle.
People are willing to pay through the nose for colloidal silver at health food stores because it heals infections and prevents the spread of germs and disease faster and better than anything else on the planet, and because it’s safe and completely natural, to boot!
So, commercially speaking, the retail price of colloidal silver at health food stores reflects its value to the consumer far more so than its true cost to produce. But here’s the good news:
With a brand new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge, you can make your own safe, pure, high-quality micro-particle colloidal silver for about 36 cents a quart! In other words, you can make it actual cost.
Compared to typical health food store prices of $20 to $30 for a tiny 4-oz. bottle, the very first couple one-quart batches you make literally pays for the entire cost of your new generator!
Do you know of any other health product that literally pays for itself the very first few times you use it? The savings are absolutely astonishing!
As Close to FREE Colloidal Silver
As You Can Come, For the Rest of Your Life
In fact, by making your own high-quality colloidal silver with a brand new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge, you’ll be as close to having FREE colloidal silver as you can get, and for the rest of your life!
You’ll never have to pay those exorbitant health food store prices again!
The new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator is now the world’s #1 best-selling colloidal silver generator. Here are just a few reasons why you should own one…
- It pays for itself after your very first batch or two — your total cost to make your first quart is about 36 cents, compared to the $240 you’d pay at a health food store if you bought an equivalent amount (i.e., eight of those little 4-ounce bottles they normally sell for $30 apiece)!
- Safe, simple to operate…No special skills needed…You just set the handy timer, plug it in, walk away, and three hours later you have a perfect batch of therapeutic quality micro-particle colloidal silver…every time! Here’s a short pictorial demonstrating how astonishingly easy it is to use a new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge:
- Produces uncommonly small silver micro-particles as low as .8 nm. That’s a fraction of a single nanometer. Compare that to health food store colloidal silver which can contain silver particles as large as 200 nm to 1,000 nm (or even larger), and you’ll see why micro-particle colloidal silver is the very best there is! Smaller particles mean your body can absorb and utilize up to 99% of the colloidal silver you take, compared to maybe 40% or 50% with many health food store brands!
- Runs on standard household electricity, but uses less power than a tiny Christmas tree bulb – you won’t even see a blip on your electric bill!
- Produces uniform, crystal clear batches every single time that store for months, or even years, without losing potency!
- Cannot produce silver chloride or unsafe substances – you get pure, therapeutic-quality micro-particle colloidal silver every time!
Just read through some of the testimonials below to see for yourself how you’ll save literally thousands of dollars per year by making your own colloidal silver with your brand new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge!
Here’s what one customer recently wrote to tell us:
“Owning a Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge has given us the luxury of being able to use high-quality colloidal silver any time we need it. And we never have to worry about the costs because it only costs a few pennies per quart to make! It is without a doubt the single-best money-saving appliance in my entire house!
Best of all, the machine is very easy to use, and easy to store. I was concerned about ease-of-use, but my fears were unfounded. After I got mine and used it, I immediately bought one and sent it to my 83 year old mom, and she uses it regularly as well.
Now that I have a Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator, I can use colloidal silver for everything — disinfecting the kitchen sinks, countertops, and the cutting board… spraying the toilet bowls, and the bathroom countertops and sinks… spraying it on my toothbrush to prevent bacterial growth…rinsing my mouth with it to prevent cavities and gum disease…you name it.
I even put it in the laundry rinse cycle when I do my linens, towels and kitchen rags, so I don’t have to wash them as frequently. It really keeps them fresh, and there’s never any mold or mildew anywhere in our house.
I also put some in the cat’s water bowl each day, and the dog’s too. We use it in the bathtub for skin problems. And of course we drink it when our tummies are queasy, or when we feel a cold or flu coming on. We also gargle with it in order to get rid of sore throats, and sniff it up our noses to get rid of sinus problems.
My husband even sprays it on his hair in the mornings, and has completely eliminated his lifelong dandruff problem. And he sprays a little bit in his eyes from time to time, and now has no more recurrent problems with sties.”

And here’s what another happy customer wrote to say about the tremendous savings she’s achieved by no longer having to purchase her colloidal silver through health food stores:
“We make a quart of colloidal silver at least once a week with the Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from the Silver Edge. I finally sat down and figured out how much this machine has been saving us. By making our own colloidal silver we’ve saved $11,503.20 this year alone, compared to the cost of colloidal silver at our local health food store.
The cost for colloidal silver at our local health food store is $30 for a tiny four-ounce bottle. But with my Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator, I can make eight times that amount (i.e., a full quart) for about 35 cents total cost.
If I were to purchase a quart of colloidal silver at the health food store, which would be eight of those tiny, four-ounce bottles, the cost would be a whopping $240 (i.e., 8 x $30 = $240) compared to the 35 cents I now spend to make a full quart!
Here’s the breakdown of our costs to make a full quart of colloidal silver with our Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator: It costs us about a dollar for a gallon of steam-distilled water at Walmart. So a quart of the steam-distilled water costs about 25 cents. And I estimate we use maybe a nickel’s worth of electricity and maybe another nickel’s worth of silver from the silver rods for every one-quart batch of colloidal silver we make. So that’s 35 cents a quart, all told, for each quart of micro-particle colloidal silver we make!
And frankly, considering how long the .9999 fine silver rods have lasted (over a year and a half, so far, for the most recent set), I think it’s probably even cheaper than that. But it’s the lifetime savings we’ve experienced that’s just mind-boggling to me.
For example, we’ve had our Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver unit for nearly five years now. And as I mentioned we make one quart per week, and we spend about 35 cents a week on making colloidal silver.
This means we save about $239.65 a week by not having to purchase a quart’s worth of colloidal silver at our local health food store. So do the math: In just one month, the savings is $958.60…in one year, the savings is $11,503.20…and in five years we’ve saved approximately $57,516.00!
When you put pencil to paper and figure it out, it definitely takes you by surprise. You just think ‘No way. I must have multiplied that wrong.’
But it’s true. The savings is legitimately well over $11,000 a year over health food store prices for colloidal silver, if you make and use a quart of colloidal silver a week like we do! And we reap that incredible savings from the very reasonable $250 investment we made in purchasing our Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator.
In their advertising literature, The Silver Edge says the unit completely pays for itself after your first couple of one-quart batches. But really, that’s quite an understatement when you realize the true extent of your savings!
Of course, once you start making your own colloidal silver with a Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge, you don’t really think about how much you’re saving compared to health food store prices, because it just becomes a normal part of your everyday life. But the savings is nevertheless astonishing when you reflect on it.
What’s especially nice is being able to produce a significantly higher-quality colloidal silver than what’s generally available to the public through health food stores, especially at such a tiny, tiny fraction of the cost.”
— Marie Wilkey, SC
