    Curing what eye conditions?

    Also, which celandine do you mean, the native North American celandine poppy
    (Stylophorum diphyllum) or the European horticultural Celandine Poppy ?

    I have mild chronic conjunctivitis which is due to tallow (grease)
    accumulation in my eyes.I am also short-sighted.
    I would like to try using celandine as diluted drops or something like
    that, but I'm a little bit afraid because celandine is also a poison.
    I guess it's european sort.It's wild growth.
    Lat. Chelidonium majus

    HerbMed does not list any studies, trials or anecdotal evidence for use of
    Celandine in the eye. It has caused chronic liver disease in some users.
    There are also reports of fungal, bacterial and parasite contamination of
    some sources, I would not recommend using a homemade eye drop preparation.
    See the link below:

    If you have chronic eye inflammation from excess oil production, lid scrubs
    and massage would be a recommended first therapy. If the condition is acne
    rosacea of the lids, oral tetracycline may be of benefit.

    Ask your eye doctor about lid scrubs.
