How Do You Treat Dry Red Eyes?

Finding a suitable treatment for dry red eyes may seem like an easy task, but once you start sorting through your treatment options, it can be easy to become overwhelmed.

What everyone who suffers from an eye condition really wants is fast, soothing relief from the many symptoms associated with dry red eyes. These symptoms can range from mild irritation, dryness, and noticeable redness in the eyes, to excessive watering and itchiness of the eyes. The best type of treatment will help relieve all of the symptoms at once.

The following treatments are available to help ease the irritation of dry red eyes:

Cold Compress

Eye Drops Allergy

Eye Drops

Artificial Tears

A cold compress can be made simply by wetting a washcloth in ice water or by wrapping some ice in a dishtowel. You can hold the cold compress against your eyes to provide some relief from the irritation and itchiness, as well as the redness in your eyes. While the cold compress can help ease the irritation and itchiness, it does not “treat” the actual condition.

Eye drops are mostly used to “get the red out” of your eyes. But, like a cold compress, they do not “treat” the actual condition. You can use eye drops in addition to other forms of treatment. Allergy eye drops are used for those individuals who are suffering from an eye condition that is associated with allergies.

The use of artificial tears is one of the most common forms of treatment for dry red eyes. Artificial tears are moist eye drops that help relieve the redness and irritation. But not all artificial tears are the same and using the wrong kind can lead to more eye issues and problems.
