Itchy eyes, pink eye, night blindness. These are all symptoms from bacteria, viruses, and vitamin deficiency. A vitamin A deficiency is a contributing factor to blindness, by making the cornea very dry. Over time, the dryness leads to damaged retina and corneas. To keep your eyes healthy, you need to ensure you get enough oxygen to them during the day. Your cornea does not have any blood vessels, and it cannot create its own blood supply. Therefore, your eyes depend heavily on the atmosphere and the tears coating them to allow enough oxygen into the system.
The lack of oxygen to your eyes will cause blurred vision, burning, excessive tearing and a scratchy feeling (almost like you have sand in your eye).
Medico Herbs Eye Spray contains four specifically chosen herbs to aid and supply extra oxygen to your eyes. The 4 herbs are Goldenseal, Bayberry, Eyebright, and Bilberry.
Pink eye is caused through a transfer of bacteria or virus or through a common cold that has spread through the nasal passage. That is why Goldenseal was chosen. It contains berberine which fights against bacteria and fungi, helping your eyes stay clear and healthy.
As said before, a deficiency in vitamin A is a factor for dry and itchy eyes. Therefore, Bayberry has been chosen. This herb is rich in phytochemicals (plant like chemicals that may have health benefits) as well as antioxidants like vitamin A, C and E.
Eyebright has also been selected due to its vitamin content of vitamin A, B (thiamine and riboflavin), C and E, which all have eye nourishing properties. Vitamine B-1 (thiamine) is crucial for intercellular eye metabolism. Zinc, selenium, and copper are also found in eyebright and contribute to healthy retinas and lenses.
Bilberry extracts are promoted as dietary supplements to help reduce the risk of macular degeneration. Age-related Macular degeneration (AMD) is a common condition that effects the middle part of your vision, and it usually affects people in their 50s and 60s.
