  • Wear protective eye covering such as glasses or goggles, especially when the wind is strong or when doing winter sports like skiing or hockey.
  • Use a humidifier in whichever rooms you are in – to add moisture to the air to keep the eyes moist, especially at night. Adding humidity back into the atmosphere is also beneficial for the sinuses.
  • Take omega-3 fish oil, which will help reduce inflammation and provide lubrication, stimulate tear production.  
  • Take TheraLife capsules and follow the recommended protocol.  has a kit that contains four bottles of TheraLife Eye capsules, one bottle of molecularly distilled purified Fish Oil, one bottle of eyelid cleanser, and one gel hot compress—everything needed to fight winter dry eyes.

Why winter dry eyes are Red, Swollen, and Burning?

In cold weather, the blood vessels in the delicate tissues around the eyes can constrict and become red and swollen.  Eyelid spasms, blurry vision, and burning eyes can be a result of constricted blood vessels.  

How to prevent winter dry eyes?

Here are some ways to help prevent winter dry eyes include:

  • Wear wrap-around glasses when you go outside. These will help protect your eyes from drying wind (a common dry eye culprit) during the winter.
  • Avoid the use of hairdryers, especially when the dryer blows directly into your eyes. Allow your hair to air-dry instead.
  • Keep your home as cool as you can tolerate by reducing your heater usage.
  • Know too that if you get a cold, taking antihistamines can lead to dry eyes

o Examples of antihistamines you may use to treat colds include brompheniramine and chlorpheniramine. However, if you need these medications to treat your cold, you may need to use more TheraLife Eye capsules.

  • Use TheraLife Eye Capsules to increase the production of balanced tears.

Medication and winter dry eyes

Some medications can make it more likely that you’ll have dry eyes. If your symptoms are very severe in the winter, talk to your doctor about your medication list to see if there are potential alternatives.

What kind of medications result in dry eyes?

Examples of these medications include antidepressants, birth control pills, and medicines used to treat blood pressure. Never stop using these medications without a doctor’s permission.

Menopausal Dry Eyes

Menopause hormone imbalance is a significant cause of dry eyes in over 50 menopausal women. There is the hormone in tears. When hormone level starts to decrease, tear production also decreases, resulting in dry eyes. Dry eyes can happen to anyone at any age.

Other Natural dry eye treatment methods

Humidifiers

Other natural methods to find dry eye relief in the winter includes using humidifiers in the house. Placing a humidifier in the bedroom is best because this is where we spend a majority of our time during sleep, where dry eyes tend to be at their worst. Many people turn the heat down at night and snuggle under heavy blankets or quilts, but no protection for their eyes. Placing a humidifier in the room allows increased moisture levels to soothe eyes.

Drink more water

Another all-natural method for dry eye relief is to drink more water. Keeping the body well hydrated allows the body to produce tears with less effort.

Adding TheraLife Eye capsules helps the body produce vital tears to keep the eyes dry, red, and irritated.
