Hello ladies. I have been diagnosed with dry eye recently. It could be because of my excessive use of computers. But I cannot help it as my job demands it. I am scheduled for a dry eye treatment. But I would like to go for some natural remedies for dry eyes. Is there any herbal cure for dry eyes? Please suggest.

Are your eyes irritated? Do you think any kind of allergies could be contributing to the dryness?

I know chickweed can be used as a poultice on eyes that are irritated and infected.

And I would think any herbs that support the health of the mucous membranes and such might be helpful here? Especially Oat Straw infusion?

But that's more of a guess, not something I have first hand knowledge of!

I found this article interesting, it might be helpful!

@ Greenwitch Thank you for sharing this information.
@ Herbnut Have you tried herbal eye wash? Is it effective for dry eyes? I have heard that it is good for eye health but I am not sure whether it could heal dry eyes.
