One of my horses started having weeping eyes all the time, year round. The vet figured allergies and doctored accordingly. No improvement.
I then researched herbs, essential oils, talked to anyone that would listen, and started trying my oils. What I came up with, that finally worked, was to use Young Living's Lavender lotion with 2 drops of the RC and Purification blends and diluted all of that with a bit of massage oil.
In the summer he usually ended up with conjunctivitis due to the flies feeding on his weeping eyes. I would gently wash his eye area, applied the salve and face mask if the flies were really bad, and thereafter did not have one problem with the flies or infection.
His eyes stopped weeping as long as I used the salve every day. I continue to use the salve every day, even in the winter. Not sure what is causing it. The vet has done all he can so I will continue with this protocol since it works so well.

|2.||Associated topics: blepharitis — "Demodex blepharitis is a common but overlooked external eye disease. The pathogenesis of Demodex blepharitis in eliciting ocular surface inflammation has been further clarified. The modified eyelash sampling and counting method makes it easier and more accurate to diagnose Demodex infestation. Tea tree oil shows promising potential to treat Demodex blepharitis by reducing Demodex counts with additional antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory actions."||Link|
