Dry eyes – Bananas are rich in potassium which helps control the balance of sodium and the release of fluid in your cells. Eat a banana a day

Itchy eyes – tea bags soaked in cool water will help soothe itchy eyes. Place 1 tea bag over each closed eye for 15 minutes

Eyestrain – cucumbers, lie on your back and place 1 slice  of cucumber over each closed eye. Leave on the slices for 2-3 minutes or replace the first pair with another, cooler set of slices.

Use good lighting, try reading glasses from the drug store if you think it might help. Take a break from the work, the computer at least every 2-3 hours, do something else, have a bathroom break, get a drink, just take a break from the screen for at least 15-20 minutes.

If the eyestrain becomes a lingering issue or a cause of headache or pain, see a doctor.
