In the treatment of the ordinary form of catarrhal conjunctivitis I use the fluid extract of eucalyptus. I drop ten drops into a cup full of hot water, and bathe the eyes with this frequently. If there is an inclination for the lids to stick together during sleep, I prepare an ointment of ten drops of eucalyptus to an ounce of vaseline and apply this to the lids at bed time.
