1. BLINK BLINK ΘΘ
Maybe you sit at a desk, looking at a computer all day. Blink more often. This will help to keep the eyes lubricated.
2. Add Fish Oil to your diet
Add omega-3 fatty acids to your diet. Fish like tuna, sardines, anchovies, trout and salmon are high in omega-3 or you can choose to use a dietary supplement in pill or tablet form.
3. Drink more water
Your body needs water to stay healthy. Well so do your eyes! Try drinking 8 – 10 glasses of water per day and that will help to keep your eyes moist.
4. Protect those peepers
If you find yourself outside in the elements, try wearing wrap around sunglasses to protect your eyes against wind and contaminants. And when using a blow dryer, point it away from your eyes.
5. When at home…
Use a humidifier or put a kettle of water on your radiator/stove. This will add moisture to dry indoor air. Clean air filters will allow any dust and foreign particles to be collected.
6. Use a lubricant eye drop
Refresh Plus instantly moisturizes to provide immediate, soothing relief for dry, irritated eyes. It comes in preservative-free single-use vials and has many of the same healthy qualities as your own natural tears. Refresh Plus has also been demonstrated to relieve post-LASIK dryness. If you have recently had LASIK surgery, please follow your eye doctor’s instructions regarding the use of Refresh Plus.
When tears do not lubricate the eye enough, your eyes may have:
• Redness and blurry vision
• Feeling of sand in your eye
DID YOU KNOW?
Dry eyes occur when the eye does not produce enough tears. Dry eyes can be an uncomfortable condition, leading to scratching and burning sensations that can impede productivity. Dryness can be caused by many factors including the natural aging process, as a side effect of many medications, and climate conditions that are dry or windy. Working in an environment with air conditioning or heating systems or working with computer screens regularly can also affect the eyes. Using artificial tears can help soothe the eye, so that your eyes can feel better.
