I had really a bad case of conjunctivitis. I made up a mixture of 1 part baby shampoo and 1 parts water in an eye cup and wiped it over my eyelids with a cotton ball. Next, I applied the black tea bags and drizzled it in my eyes along with 2 capsules of eye-bright dissolved in the tea. I found it more effective to pour the warm tea in an eye cup and hold it for about 1 minute on each eye. After a couple applications that day, by evening it had cleared it up. I used Blink eye drops for moisture since my eyes still felt a little dry. Probably from the baby shampoo mixture. When I awoke the next day, for the first time in my life my eyes were clearer than they had ever been. Thanks so much for the tip!
