The leaves are entirely opposite, ovate or cordate, and downy; the flowers very abundant, inodorous, with a brilliant variety of colors. The fruit is an oblong pod, filled with numerous seeds. The name Euphrasia is from the Greek Euphrosyne, who was one of the Three Graces and was known for her joy, mirth and, gladness. Although known by the ancient Greeks it was not until 14th century that it is mentioned for ‘all evils of the eye’. Eyebright is one of the primary herbal sources of eye care. Eyebright has been depended upon for at least 2000 years in the treatment of various eye problems. Since the Middle Ages. Difficult or impossible to cultivate, eyebright grows well in the wild, especially in meadows and open fields. The problem, according to government officials, is that eyebright is hemiparasitic. Its roots have food nodules that attach to the roots of surrounding plants. Because of eyebright’s parasitic nature, its seeds are considered a threat to other plants, including grasses and citrus crops, and their importation has been banned.
