Experiment has started: cabbage juice in eyes (for healing the mucous layer of the eye) – dry eye cure
Based on a hint that cabbage juice contains gefarnate, I've started the cabbage juice experiment.
Crushed in a juicer filtered with paper towel, inserted two drops each first. Since that didn't hurt, I mixed with a little water and gave the eyes a 10 second bath, each. Felt good afterwards.
Turns out that the Greeks have used cabbage juice in eyes for 3000 years.
That cabbage soothes the eyes is also confirmed here: "I crumpled a cabbage leaf in water for eye wash. It was 7ph and perfectly soothing. The swelling began to decline. I put two cabbage fresh leaves on my eyes under my linen sleep mask for two nights.I crumpled a cabbage leaf in water for eye wash. It was 7ph and perfectly soothing. The swelling began to decline.

Apparently cabbage can also cure styes (which is not my problem): "An eyebath of warm boracic lotion or a poultice of fresh, steamed cabbage leaves will disperse a stye" (source)

Experiment closed I expect quick results from such "experiment'. If they are really working I should see results within three days. No change to my condition. Hence experiment stopped.
