Dr. Christopher s Herbal Eyebright Extract, also known as Eyebright, is a special formulation designed to treat and prevent eye diseases of different etiologies and to improve visual acuity. The extract has been also found to soothe inflamed mucous membranes and is effective against cough and upper respiratory infections.

Eyebright (lat. Euphrasia Officinalis) is one of the oldest medicinal herbs used in folk medicine of different countries. Many people call it the "eye grass" or "bright eyes."

Eyebright as a medicinal plant was first mentioned in 1305 and it was so famous and believed to be so effective that it was glorified in poems. In Tibetan medicine, eyebright has long been considered a good remedy against conjunctivitis. In Iceland, the eyebright juice has been used as an analgesic for various eye diseases.

Eyebright represents a rich complex of active substances, including glycosides, flavonoids, anthocyanins, coumarins, vitamin C, carotene, bitterness, saponins, essential and fatty oils, trace elements: copper, manganese, zinc, boron, silver, magnesium, molybdenum, iron, chrome, and nickel, which at biochemical level affect the cause of inflammatory and degenerative changes in retina and vitreous.

The biological effect of Dr. Christopher s Herbal Eyebright Extract includes anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, and astringent (especially with regard to mucosal eyelids and conjunctiva) properties, which reduce intraocular pressure and help to improve the function of vision.

The extract has been widely used in ophthalmology for burning eyes and tears, to improve visual acuity, prevent eye diseases of various etiologies, and degenerative and dystrophic processes in the eye. The formula may help to reduce pain and inflammation in eye injuries and damaged cornea.

Such a long history of use of eyebright and other ingredients in Dr. Christopher s formulation suggest that the extract is an excellent solution for the treatment and prevention of eye diseases of different etiologies, as well as the improvement of visual acuity.

General indications for use:
  • Conjunctivitis
  • Blepharitis
  • Inflammation of the lacrimal sac (dacryocystitis)
  • Increased eye fatigue
  • Turbidity and spots on the cornea
  • Glaucoma
  • Nystagmus
  • Cataracts

Dr. Christopher s Herbal Eyebright Extract is also used for allergies, bronchitis, cough accompanied with a viscous secretion, hoarse voice, digestive problems, lack of appetite, gastritis, and jaundice. Many herbalists prescribe the extract for colds, diathesis, baby eczema, and lupus in children.
Directions
As a dietary supplement take 10-15 drops 3 times a day or as directed by your health care professional.

As an eyewash Externally (Eye Application). Shake Well. Place 3-5 drops of the herbal eyewash extract into each of the two CLEAN & STERILE eyecups, one for each eye (left and right). Then pour some boiling distilled water in each eyecup almost filling it to the rim of the eyecup glass. Then let the two full eyecup glasses cool normally to room temperature.

(DO NOT USE UNTIL THE EYECUPS & EYEWASH SOLUTION HAVE RETURNED BACK TO ROOM TEMPERATURE. DO NOT USE IF EITHER EYE CUP GLASS CRACKED DURING THIS PROCESS).

With contacts removed and once the eyecup and eyewash solution have cooled, tip head forward, put the eyecup with solution up to the eye and press it gently against the face with the eyecup surrounding the eye. Then tilt the head backwards, blinking the eye as though swimming under water. Blink a few times. There will be a burning sensation (during and slightly after this process), which will turn the eye red when using the eyewash, THIS IS NORMAL! (the burning sensation will go away) Repeat the same process with the other eye, using the clean solution (do not use the same eyecup for the other eye). The best time to do this procedure is before retiring for bed.
