Do you often get dry and itchy eyes? That could be a real bother. Certain triggers can cause this condition, including air pollution, allergies, and weather conditions. Whatever the case is, a person needs to have proper lubrication in his or her eyes to reduce the risk of eye infections.

Don’t worry. There are ways to avoid dry eyes and these steps are easy to follow.

1. Your eyes need a break from the computer, too.

Fixing your eyes on your computer screen all day can take its toll on your eyes. If facing the computer is inevitable for you, it is advised to take a break even for a couple of minutes for every hour you spend in front of your computer.

2. Make use of lubricating eye drops.

The use of artificial tears provides instant relief for dry eyes. You can find over-the-counter eye drops so you don’t need your doctor’s prescription to obtain them. However, it is still important to look for those that don’t have any preservatives since they can irritate the eyes more. Omega-3 is the key! Fish oil contains an amazing nutrient called Omega-3, which is responsible for reducing any inflammation in the body, most especially that of the eyes.

3. Take a break from the contacts.

If you have been wearing contact lenses all day, at least give your eyes some rest by taking them off when you get home.

4. Be aware of the environment you’re in.

When you are in a dry environment, of course, you will likely get dry eyes. If you have to live in one, make sure you invest in a humidifier to moisturize your home.
