    Yeah, you are right, and honey is a good thing for our body and it is also a good food. Meanwhile, when your eyes are infected, honey is a good medication. As we all know, eye infections are caused because of the bacteria, virus or microbiological agent. Then according to the expert, honey, which has antibacterial properties and acts as a humectant, will eliminate the infection and provide soothing relief. If your eye infection is a little serious, you can mix equal parts honey with distilled or boiled water to make a solution (pls note the distilled or boiled water is to make sure that there is no bacteria in water), you can put the solution around your eyes, which will be helpful. Of course, honey can be used in other ways to cure the eye infection.

It can be used in several ways to treat eye infection. You can either mix honey with boiled water to make a solution, and apply on the eye by using a Q-tip.
