Eyestrain Remedy

Eyestrain can occur in those who overuse their eyes, or can be caused by other factors such as tension or anxiety.

Eyestrain is characterized by headaches, blurry vision or difficulty focusing.

If you have mild eyestrain every so often it is not a cause for alarm. Some herbal remedies can be helpful.

• Eyebright – This herb helps reduce watery eyes as it has both anti-inflammatory and astringent properties.

It also helps relieve eye irritation. Most often taken as a tea, drink 1 to 3 cups per day. It can also be used as a compress.

Steep the dried herbs in hot water for 10 minutes. Strain and cool the liquid, then soak a clean towel and apply to closed eyes.

• Bilberry – This shrub produces berries that are used to treat vision problems.

It helps strengthen the capillaries of the eyes.

Taken in capsule form, take 2 to 3 capsules per day. The closely related cranberry, blueberry and huckleberry are also good for treating eye problems.

• Goldenseal – Use goldenseal as a compress on the eyes.

It contains berberine, which is known to help constrict the blood vessels, helping to get rid of bloodshot eyes.
