Your eyes are complex and provide you with critical information as you work and play all day long! Eye difficulties can be painful and distracting. Natural remedies for eye issues can include herbs like chamomile or eyebright, supplements like vitamin A and vitamin C, or special eye exercises and rest.
Your overall health will affect the health of your eyes. Nutritional deficiencies will mean that your body, including your eyes, will lack the necessary building blocks for daily repair. Eating a variety of whole foods that provide a wide range of nutrients will benefit your eyes and your entire body.
Carrots supply your body with significant amounts of vitamin A, which is critical for eye health. Add a couple of raw carrots to your lunch or consider drinking carrot juice!
Beets contain lutein and zeaxanthin, both critical for eye health. Kale, spinach and eggs are other good sources of these critical nutrients.
Vitamin C is needed for all systems of your body, including the eye. Vitamin C supports collagen production, which is in the cornea of your eye.
Wear Proper Eye Wear
Wearing sunglasses that protect your eyes from UV rays. If you use a computer a lot, special glasses can be worn to reduce computer vision syndrome.
Some herbs like chamomile and eyebright are especially nourishing to your eyes. Moist chamomile tea bags over the eyes can heal eye infections and reduce eye pain.
