I can't speak to the "eye of Horus" reference, but regarding these glands,
the pineal is not the 3rd eye. The physical manifestion of the 6th chakra (3rd eye or eye-center) is the pituitary gland, aka, the master gland.

The pineal is the physical manifestation of the crown chakra and it plays a big role in how we can leave the body through the crown chakra, which is much more desirable than exiting through the lower centers--heart, throat, etc.
During the early AM, starting at midnight, and peaking around 3-4 AM, the pineal secretes melatonin and "thins the veils" for us, making it easier to have visions and to consciously leave the body during meditation. The old mystics refered to this time of day as the "hour of elixer".
