5 lasting remedies for dry eye syndrome

The underlying question is: why am I blocking my tears? 😄

What are dry eyes?

Dry eyes occur when :

  • My lacrimal system does not produce enough tears.
  • My tears evaporate too quickly.

Keeping the surface of my eye lubricated helps protect my cornea.

Generally, both eyes are affected, and may suffer from :

  • Discomfort.
  • Red eyes.
  • Eye fatigue.
  • Impaired vision.
  • Burning eyes.
  • Itching.
  • Sore eyes.

Causes of dry eye syndrome

  • Emotional causes.
  • Disease.
  • Prolonged exposure to screens.
  • Fine particles, smoke, pollution.
  • Contact lenses.
  • Eye surgery.
  • Nutritional deficiencies: mainly vitamins A, C or E.
  • Certain medications.
  • Hormonal disorders.
  • Lack of sleep.

These causes can combine to have an impact on the Meibomian or lacrimal glands.

Medical treatment

In the event of dryness, an eye doctor should be seen.

Common medical treatments include

  • Eye drops.
  • Meibomian gland stimulators.
  • Medication.
  • Tear plugs.

These treatments are generally not long-lasting, as they do not resolve the underlying causes.

Natural remedies

There are some natural solutions if I suffer from dry eye syndromes.


The main causes of eye dryness are my emotional wounds.

Dysfunctional glands are pushing me to explore myself within.

Rather than putting the blame on the outside, I can take charge of myself.

After my Lasik operation, I started to wake up with dry eyes, especially in the middle of the night. Behind it, there were fears of crying. It took me back to childhood, when my parents used sentences like “stop blubbering”. So unconsciously I blocked my tears.

I can discover how to deal with my emotions.

Eye detox

A week-long gentle eye detox helps to detoxify.

As a result, eyes can repair themselves more easily.


Gently massaging the eyelids once or twice a day for 30 seconds stimulates the meibomian glands.

The meibum is a layer of lipids forming a barrier that prevents excessive evaporation of tears.

However, if these glands are dysfunctional, there are probably emotional wounds behind it.


Some foods help prevent the eye from drying out, even if this is only a secondary action.

  • Zinc combined with vitamin A.
  • Butterfly pea.
  • Cucumber
  • Lemon.
  • Vitamin C.
  • Shilajit.
  • Sea-buckthorn.
  • Omega-3.
  • Vitamin E.


Euphrasia (euphrasia officinalis) works miracles for the eyes.

There are eye drops made from this plant that :

  • Lubricate eyes.
  • Strengthen.
  • Improve tear secretion.
