VACCINIUM MYRTILLUS The leaves are sometimes used for coughs, and stomach and skin problems. Weak hypoglycemic action has been useful in treatment of diabetes. Very good for eyesight. For centuries, Europeans have used bilberry for jams and other foods.  World War II fighter pilots reportedly used it to improve their night vision. Research demonstrates that bilberry may even serve as an effective aid for visual and vascular eye disorders including night blindness, visual fatigue, and severe nearsightedness.  It helps to strengthen the tiny capillaries that deliver nutrients to eye muscles and nerves.  It helps to extend the range and sharpness of vision.  This plant is a northern plant and will not do well in hot tropical areas such as Florida.
