Bilberry, or Vaccinium myrtillus, was originally trialled by French scientists on Royal Air Force pilots during World War II. It is believed that this herbal medicine actually increases blood and oxygen delivery to the eye, and also assists with scavenging free-radicals that damage collagen structures, helping to prevent cataracts and macular degeneration1.
Bilberry is one of the richest sources of anthocyanins, which function as antioxidants. There are many other benefits of this herb, apart from supporting eye health, such as decreasing blood glucose and lipids and having an anti-inflammatory effect2. Bilberry is often used to assist with night vision, eye strain and the general health of the macula.
