Eyebright has an anti-inflammatory action combined with astringent properties which make it a powerful treatment for congestive illnesses; such as, nasal catarrh and sinusitis.


It is also used in treating eye conditions such as chronic or acute inflammations, stinging and weeping eyes and over sensitivity to light.


Eyebright herb is very much commended for the eyes. If your eyes are inflamed due to an allergic reaction; such as, hay fever or blood shot due to too little sleep or too much alcohol or infected with conjunctivitis, then an eyebright eyewash is for you.


A weak solution of eyebright tea is the best thing to bathe the eyes with several times a day. Used as an eye wash it can prevent secretion of fluids and relieves discomfort from eyestrain or minor irritation, and allergy relief. Good for all eye problems.


However, capsules can be taken internally for the same conditions. Eyebright contains an iridoid glycoside called aucuboside which exerts a definite strengthening effect on the capillaries of the eye. In other words, if your eyeballs are not getting enough circulation, eyebright will correct that.


Eyebright has been known to relieve intra-ocular pressure and diminish shrinking of the optic nerve in the early stages of glaucoma. In fact, English, herbalist, Nicholas Culpepper claimed that eyebright strengthened the brain. It was also known to be used to treat bad memory and vertigo.


As with all herbal nutrition supplements, eyebright supplements should only be used in amounts typically recommended for medicinal purposes and you should always consult with a health professional first, especially if you are pregnant, nursing or taking prescription medications.


NATURAL REMEDIES FOR PETS:
Just about any herbal remedy that you use can be adapted for use for your pet. An eyebright tea or tincture may be useful for cataracts, eye wash, macular degeneration, pink eye, retina problems and vision. In addition, meadowsweet is excellent for soothing the eyes and conjunctiva.


GROWING:
Many species of eyebright are found in Alpine meadows where snow is common. Flowers are usually borne terminally, and have a lower petal shaped like a lip. The most common flower colors are blue-white and violet. Some species have yellow markings on the lower petal to act as a guide to pollinating insects.
