Can i use peroxide for an eye infection?

Absolutely not!

Eyes
No! Peroxide will cause severe and painful burning of the cornea, and will be only mildly annoying to the bacteria. Do not use it in your eye!

Is it alright to use marijuana to help heal an eye injury?

no

Cannabis
Marijuana could allow you to ignore the injury for a while, but any eye injury needs urgent evaluation by an ophthalmologist (not an optometrist) to treat sight threatening damage. Marijuana has no healing capability.

I have a very good health food store with a knowledgeable owner. If she suggests a certain root or herb, can I use it safely for an eye infection?

No!

There are no roots or herbs to treat eye infections. I have heard of some non-medicinal "cures" for eye infections, however the danger is that the infection will get worse and ultimately cause permanent vision loss while waiting for such remedies to be effective. If you think you have an eye infection you should seek an ophthalmologist to help you immediately.

How would an eye injury from paintball be treated?

Derpends on Injury

Eyes
Blunt trauma, such as being struck with a paintball, can run the range from minor to severe. Minor problems include small corneal abrasions, mild intraocular inflammation, and swollen lids. More severe injuries include intraocular bleeding, retinal detachment, or a rupture of the eyeball itself. Treatment can be anything from observation, to drops, to surgery if necessary.
