Hello Kristya, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com
The eye is a very sensitive organ, therefore treatment by dripping cucumber water into the eye is not recommended. Medicines or certain liquids that are dropped in the eye should be in a clean condition and free of irritants. In the process of extracting the cucumber water that you want to use, its cleanliness is not known. Dropping certain fluids that are not known to be clean into the eyes can cause irritation and infection of the eyes.
Cucumber is known to have benefits for reducing puffiness in the eyes, eliminating dark circles in the eyes, and making the eyes look fresher. To get these benefits, cucumbers only need to be cut and placed on closed eyes and not dripped directly on the eyes.
If the trigerminal disease you mean is trigerminal neuralgia, then the use of cucumber as eye drops has never been done medically and there are no specific studies that prove this can cure trigerminal neuralgia. Theoretically there is no data showing the benefits of cucumber in curing trigerminal neuralgia.
That's all the information from me, hopefully it's enough to answer
