Eyebright Infusion

Euphrasia officinalis

eyebright

One of the most well-regarded ophthalmic herbs, traditional use of eyebright dates to the 14th century. By the 16th century, eyebright was hailed by well-known herbalists Fuchsius and Tragus. This herb grows and is used traditionally in Europe, North America, Western Asia and Northern Asia. The name Euphrasia is derived from the Greek word for gladness.  Eyebright, as its name implies, was traditionally used for just about any ailment of the eye.
