Oh gosh, Dh had some really good eye drops like 6 years ago when he worked nights in front of a computer. I can't even remember what they were.
If it's not a constant thing I'd pick up some eye drops. If it's something that happens frequently then maybe you should talk with your doctor?
Omega3 fatty acids, and enough (not too much) water intake.
Also, blinking regularly (like every 5 minutes --set a timer) while working on computers or reading for long periods.
Good ideas ladies...I honestly had no idea!
No idea...... BUMP!
I use Bausch & Lomb.
The best kinds are the ones that say gel tears on them. Not the nighttime ointment, as that will blur your vision. Just gel tears. My favorite brands are Genteal (which has formulations for mild, moderate and severe), Blink, Systane. If you are waking up with really dry, crusty eyes, you might need the nighttime gel/ointment. Dry eyes are not only annoying, but can also be dangerous. I developed a (OMG painful) corneal ulcer when I had Bell's Palsy because my eye got too dry. Think of a contact that is left out of saline solution, that's what happens to the outer part of the eye if it dries out.
I think i read somewhere that it had something to do with vitamin deficiency, but of course i can't remember where. I'd say eye drops though
Dh has some great eye drops. I have to ask him what kind they are. BUT he told me not to over use them - they can quickly become addicted (according to our eye dr).
