Natural eye drops are the best solution for your tired or dry eyes. I personally suffer from my eye tiredness, because of huge amounts of time I spend before my laptop. Why natural drops for your eyes? First of all, natural means safe, and this is very important when we talk about such a delicate area as our eyes. Natural drops can be actually cheaper then over-the-counter remedies because you can even make them by yourself.
If you want to try to make your own eye drops, you will need several things. First of all get an eye dropper – that’s obvious – just buy it at a drug store. Then you will need to get organic, distilled water – you can get it from the grocery store or some natural foods store; never use your tap water for that purpose.
You will also need to buy salt and baking soda if you don’t have them at home (I doubt you don’t have them).
You will need a measuring cup and spoon, and also some container to sterilize the eye dropper and the solution – you can use a pan for that.
Sanitize the eye dropper in boiling water. Then use one cup of organic water and add 1/4 tsp of salt and a pinch (less than 1/8 tsp) of baking soda to it. Mix them well and put the solution into a pan to boil it for a minute.
The solution must be cooled down before you use it. Put two drops to each eye with the sterilized eye dropper. You will need to keep the mixture in a sterilized container.
If your eyes are dry, natural tear eye drops are the good solution for them. But this is not the only thing you can do to improve the state of your eyes. Practice eye blinking to moisturize your eye surface; it is also helpful to relieve the strain in your eyes.
Massage your eyes gently after your work at your computer, and before you go to bed. I found it very helpful to let my eyes relax. Practice regular physical activity – it has its influence on our eyes as well.
