Home Remedies for Dry Eyes

YouTube video

Here are 14 simple home remedies for dry eye symptoms (meibomian gland dysfunction, blepharitis, etc.) that you can try to get immediate and long-term relief:

1. Fluids

Drink plenty of fluids; we recommend at least 8 glasses per day. Water is preferred, but this can include fruit juices, natural beverages, etc., as well.

2. Exercise

Engage in some form of sustained physical activity at least three to four times per week. Exercise improves circulation and helps deliver blood and nutrients to the eye.

3. Humidifiers

Use humidifiers to add moisture in dry locations, either with single, portable units next to your desk or by installing one as part of your central air system. Humidifiers in the bedroom are especially helpful.

4. Sunglasses

Wear wrap-around sunglasses outdoors. Dry eyes are often sensitive to bright light and wind.

5. Fewer Eye Drops

Avoid frequent use of eye drops. Eye drops wash away naturally-occurring mucin, proteins, and lipids that thicken your tears to prevent them from evaporating too quickly. Long-term use of eye drops can create a physical dependency by conditioning your eyes not to secret tears, thus exacerbating the dry eye condition.

6. Eye Gels or Goggles at Night

Your eyelids may be partially open during sleep. Using eye gels or goggles can keep your eyes from drying out while you sleep (You can also take TheraLife® Eye capsules right before bed to help with this).

7. Warm Compresses

Use a warm compress on your eyes to improve circulation and relax. You can repeat this procedure 2 to 3 times per day. This is particularly important for treating and preventing blepharitis and meibomian gland dysfunction.

8. Sleep

Get enough sleep! Emphasize getting at least 8 hours for optimal eye health.

9. Less Computer Use

Try to spend less time on the computer. If you must use the computer for prolonged periods of time, schedule frequent breaks and take your eyes away from the computer to look out the window every hour.

10. Cucumber Slices

Place cool cucumber slices on your eyes after work.

11. Less A/C and Heat

Turn off air conditioners or heaters that make the air drier.

12. Oily Fish

Eat sufficient oily fish (e.g. salmon, tuna) at least twice a week to provide your body with the important omega-3 fatty acid, which helps to relieve dry eye symptoms. An alternative is to take TheraLife® Omega 3 Fish Oil. Diets in developed countries like the US tend to have very high omega-6 fatty acid but not enough levels of omega-3.

13. Fewer Refined Foods

Avoid eating white bread, processed foods, refined sugar, and margarine while you are experiencing dry eye symptoms.

14. Clean Face Cloth

Use a clean face cloth when washing your face. You can also rinse it under hot faucet water and place it over your eyes to provide some moisture close to your eyes. Continue Reading: Is There a Cure for Ocular Rosea?

Why TheraLife Eye Capsules?

TheraLife Eye is an all-natural, botanical formula that works to target underactive tear secretion and eliminate inflammation and dryness in the eyes. It actively increases intracellular metabolism, membrane permeability, and blood micro-circulation.

Our proprietary oral capsules utilize herbal extracts, vitamins, and minerals to stimulate all tear glands (meibomian, lacrimal, and goblet cells) and prompt natural tear secretion. 

TheraLife Eye is clinically proven. Six separate clinical studies, each spanning the course of 12 weeks, showed TheraLife Eye to be both safe and highly effective. All ingredients used in TheraLife products have been tested to ensure purity and optimal biological activity.  Read more

"I am 6 months post LASIK. I was diagnosed with dry eyes and MGD. My eyes are red, inflamed with mucus. I can not begin to tell you how much Theralife has made a difference for my eyes! I'm still currently using 3-4 capsules twice daily, along with fish oil, warm compresses and daily eye hygiene with lid scrubs. My eyes have been feeling great! Thank you so much for caring.
