Eyebright is generally regarded as safe. In cases of serious eye disorders, however, eyebright is best used under the guidance of a qualified health-care professional. Avoid eyebright in cases of extreme congestion, as it may be worsened by eyebright's astringent properties. Avoid during pregnancy.
HOW TO MEASURE OUR TINCTURES:
Suggested doses are given in drops. However, for easy dosing, you may want to use the guidelines below:
Droppers: If a dropper were immersed in a tincture bottle and the bulb squeezed twice, the number of drops in the pipette for most given tinctures will be approximately 30 drops.
Note: These are only averages. More viscous (thicker) tinctures will produce fewer, and bigger, drops.
Teaspoons: There are approximately 120 drops in 1 teaspoon (approximately 4 droppersful).

Range of Appearance
Native to Europe, eyebright is a small annual herb, reaching a height of only 2 to 8 inches. The leaves are deeply toothed, oval, and pubescent and the stems are square. The small hermaphroditic plants are white with yellow and purple spots. Eyebright is semiparasitic, in that its roots attach to those of grasses. It does best in open areas, such as pastures.
