- Avoid smoking or being around people who smoke.
- Windy conditions can also have an adverse effect on your eyes. If you can, stay inside when it’s windy. If you have to go outside in the wind, wear glasses to protect your eyes.
- Add a humidifier to your home if your home environment lacks moisture in the air.
Improve Your Diet
The final way to naturally help you with dry eyes is to change the types of food you eat. Those extra fatty acids you add to your diet along with specific oils can help alleviate dry eyes.
Here are a couple of things to add to your diet:
- Eat foods containing omega-3 fatty acids or take an omega-3 supplement. Salmon, tuna, flaxseed, palm oil as well as chia seeds and walnuts are also ways to get this omega-3 source.
- Drink at least 8 glasses of water daily to keep mucous membranes in your eyes moist.
If these natural remedies still don’t help you with your dry eyes and your think your condition may be something more serious, make an appointment to see your doctor.
