Any herbal cure for dry eyes?

Postby Bood1996 » Mon Feb 20, 2017 12:22 am

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. 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.

I am using coconut oil. It is working very well. My dry eye has gone. I started putting 1 drop in each eye but found that too much liquid, so now I dab oil along my eye lids. Google it - that's where I go my info. I can't remember the website now.

Aroha...interesting!!!! Very!!
I will look into that.
I use coconut oil for so many things.

There are eye-wash formulas for cataracts and pink eye, so why not swap in moistening herbs.

From a Traditional Chinese Medicine perspective dry eyes are associated with Heat in the Liver, so cool liver supportive herbs and foods like kelp, artichokes, beets, mung beans, rhubarb, mushrooms, chicken soup, celery, lettuce, cucumber AND something that is quite nice and even nicer on a Hot Summer day ---Chrysanthemum tea!
