When we stare at the computer for a long time, our eyes tend to get dry and itchy. Here are some effective home remedies to help combat the problem.

Home remedies for dry eyes

Due to the excessive exposure of your eyes to the computer screen, we are prone to extremely dry and itchy eyes, which leads to problems with proper vision. As a result, we keep rubbing our eyes and it starts to hurt. Additionally, our screen time was limitless due to long hours of work from home. Here are some effective home remedies to soothe your dry and itchy eyes due to excessive screen time.

Warm compress

Tears are made up of oil, mucus, and water that keep the eye lubricated. But inflamed and flaky eyelids can clog the oil glands, making your eyes dry and itchy. To combat this problem, dampen a clean cloth with warm water and place it on your eye for 5 minutes. This will help the clogged glands secrete oil.

Wash eyelashes

As mentioned earlier, inflamed eyelids clog the sebum glands and make the eyes dry, so it is important to clean the eyelids and their surroundings on a daily basis. So take a mild or baby shampoo and massage it on your closed eyes to cleanse the area.

blink more

Constant staring at the computer reduces the frequency of blinking, which eventually makes the eyes dry and itchy. So blink more often to increase lubrication. If necessary, you can practice the 20/20 rule for this. Close your eyes for 20 seconds every 20 minutes.

Oily fish in the diet

Salmon, tuna, sardines, trout, mackerel, etc. all contain omega-3 fatty acids, which help the oil glands secrete more oil into the eyes. So try to include these fish in your diet on a daily basis.

Drink enough
