Have used it the past 9 days and it has helped. Most of the swelling has decreased, the strange looking base of the eyelashes has greatly improved. Eyelids are still slightly red/purple but better. The outer corner of the eye and extending about 1/2 in outward...that area is still ? wet-like or oily-like and that keeps coming back often.
The eyecup I have doesn't work. It's glass from CVS but the edge is too wide and no matter how I position it, the liquid just falls out. I ordered the ones that Willowley said she got from Starwest. In the meantime, I've just been leaving the eyecup on the counter and bending over to put my eye in it. Just one drop of eyebright in distilled water about 4 times a day. I must be a super wimp cause it burns. Maybe I have Uny's Schulze's formula? Or maybe the infection is making it burn? I don't know. I've read how everyone else is fine w/ it and upping there drops and well...like I said, I guess I'm a wimp.
Also have been putting 10 drops plus water in eyecup and dipping piece of cotton in and using that on eyelids as well...about 8 times a day. I started internal too, but stopped as I had another killer period for a week. But I'll be starting the internal eyebright again now.
Overall, Very good improvement although not yet gone.
