Eyeglass Cleaners

  • To avoid streaks on your eyeglass lenses, clean them with a lint-free cloth and a touch of vinegar or vodka.

Eyewashes

Commercial eye drops eliminate the redness because of a decongestant that constricts the blood vessels. Using these drops on a regular basis can worsen the problem. The blood vessels will enlarge again in less and less time. Make your own eye drops from the following herbs, or just bathe your eyes with these eyewashes.

Eyebright

  • To make an eyebright eyewash, add 1 ounce of the whole dried herb eyebright to 1 pint of boiling-hot water and let it steep for 10 minutes. Strain the mixture thoroughly through a superfine strainer or through unbleached muslin. Wait until it's cool enough to use.
  • Add 3 drops of tincture of eyebright to a tablespoon of boiled water and wait until it's cool enough to use.

Chamomile

  • Add 1 teaspoon of dried chamomile flowers to 1 cup of just-boiled water. Steep for five minutes and strain the mixture thoroughly through a superfine strainer or through unbleached muslin. Wait until it's cool enough to use.
  • Add 12 drops of tincture of chamomile to 1 cup of boiling-hot water. Wait until it's cool enough to use.

Fennel Seeds

  • Add 1 teaspoon of crushed fennel seeds to 1 cup of boiling-hot water. Steep for five minutes and strain the mixture thoroughly through a superfine strainer or through unbleached muslin. Wait until it's cool enough to use.

Carrots

  • Carefully wash a bunch of carrots and cut off the tops. Place a handful of the clean carrot tops in a jar of distilled hot water. Let it stand. When its cool, use the carrot water as an eyewash.

You can also drink the remaining liquid. This drink should help your eyes and also help strengthen your kidneys and bladder.

  • Mix 1 drop of lemon juice in 1 ounce of warm distilled water and use it as an eyewash. It's particularly effective when your eyes have been exposed to dust, cigarette smoke, harsh lights and chemical compounds in the air.

Eyewash Directions

NOTE: Always remove contact lenses before doing an eyewash.

You'll need an eye cup (available at drugstores). Carefully pour boiling water over the cup to clean it. Without contaminating the rim or inside surfaces of the cup, fill it half full with whichever eyewash you've selected.

Lean forward, apply the cup tightly to the eye to prevent spillage, then tilt your head backward. Open your eye wide and rotate your eyeball to thoroughly wash the eye.

Lean over again and remove the cup. Use the same procedure with the other eye.
