Eye drops for the lubrication of sore or irritated eyes containing high-quality herbal ingredients fulfill the wishes of many patients for natural, tolerable medicinal products with minimal side effects.
The properties of chamomile, blueberry and eyebright have been known for centuries in herbal medicine. We make use of this wisdom for our wetting solutions.
The common name eyebright indicates a century-old use as eye remedy. Eyebright has already been used in the middle ages as rinses, eye baths and eye packs. For this purpose, the herb is harvested without roots and is dried.
The known active compounds are acubin and other irido glycosides, flavonoids, tannins and bitterns. Euphrasia is effective for treating conjunctivitis, irritations of the eye lid edges and also alleviates watering eyes.

Blueberries or bilberries are small bushes which thrive in sunlit forests, peatlands and heathlands. Young leafs and the berries are used in herbal medicine. Both are used for the treatment of gastro-intestinal complaints, cough and eye inflammations.
The main important compounds found in blueberries are tannins. Flavonoids, fruit acids, vitamins, minerals and sugar are also found.
Blueberry tincture in wetting agents soothes and lubricates tired and irritated eyes (e.g. when strained).

Chamomile (Chamomilla) and common mallow (Malva sylvestris L.)
Chamomile (lat. Chamomilla recutita) has anti-inflammatory, anti-convulsant, soothing and wound healing properties. This is especially known for the treatment of gastro-intestinal complaints. The active components are found in the blue essential oil of the chamomile flower. The two most important compounds are chamazulene and alpha-bisabolol.
Common mallow has anti-inflammatory, anti-irritant properties.
Chamomile and common mallow are particularly suited for a combination with a wetting agent for the lubrication of irritated eyes, e.g. after long hours working on the computer or in rooms with dry atmosphere.

An eye bath offers a still better lubrication than eye drops. Especially when the conjunctiva is strained and irritated after a day’s work at the computer or after wearing contact lenses, an eye bath soothes the eyes gently.
Apart from eyebright (Euphrasia), which calms and soothes, the eye bath contains an aloe vera gel. This gel is obtained from the water storing leaves of the plant and is said to have anti-inflammatory and wound healing properties. These two herbal extracts are complemented by hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally present as a lubricant in the vitreous body of the eye and in joints. It is able to bind large volumes of water.
