The bilberry is kin to the blueberry.
I suffer with Glaucoma and while my eye specialist said no supplements will help my vision, he also said any berries have strong antioxidants in them, and are good for the vision, especially in helping macular degeneration.
This berry is kin to the blueberry, and is called by several other names, one being huckleberry. This berry grows in the US, Europe, and Canada. These berries help to prevent or heal fragile capillaries and other small blood vessels, and that improves blood flow.
This berry is used to treat cataracts. If someone lives long enough they have a good chance of developing cataracts, about 90% to be exact. Cataracts materialize different for each individual.
They can effect one eye or both, and even progress at different rates in each eye. They're pretty unpredictable.
The berry contains bioflavonoids which aid in the removal of chemicals from the retina of the eye. It's been said during World War 11, that Royal Air Force pilots snacked on bilberry jam sandwiches before night missions to help sharpen their vision.
In one study by taking the berry extract, plus vitamin E, it stopped progression of cataract formation in 48 out of 50 patients with age related cataracts. Around 40 Mg to 80 Mg extract 3 times a day will do.

Each one that has Glaucoma will have to take prescribed eye drops. There're also helpful supplements that strengthen the eye and some even lower eye pressure.
Other supplements are:
This is a serious eye disorder where the macula, a tiny portion of the retina in the back of the eye is damaged, causing blindness in the central vision while leaving peripheral vision intact. Around 13,000,000 Americans have this in some stage of development.

Side effects of this berry.
When taken as directed no side effects were noted. Although fresh berries may give diarrhea. There's some controversy over Bilberry interacting with prescription medicine. There's not much to act on but monitor blood sugar if you're a diabetic and also have your blood checked if taking a blood thinner. Just to be safe.
