Unfortunately, I'm almost totally out of ofloxacin, an ophthalmic antibiotic. Worse, I'm also critically low on proparacaine, a pain reliever drop. The later is nearly impossible to obtain, since eye doctors seem to be very reluctant to write prescriptions for pain killers. Masochistic bastards.
I am pondering trying to make some kind of herbal eye drop. I was thinking of using myrrh as an antibacterial and perhaps peppermint (or just menthol) as a numbing agent. I've gotten peppermint soap in my eyes before and it stings like mad for a few seconds, but then it quickly goes away as the menthol numbs the eye (regular soap stings for a lot longer).
I need to find a reliable herbalist in Omaha. I know of a great place in California, but that doesn't help too much here (though perhaps they can take an order over the phone and ship it out to me). I wish I'd kept some of my herbs, as I had a supply of myrrh (which, because it is a resin, doesn't go stale like most herbs).
