Give Your Eyes a Refresh with These Tricks

The Green Eye of....

Everyone has felt that gritty tiredness in their eyes now and then. It might be that you’re actually tired, or your eyes might just be feeling the strain. Lots of things can cause it, from staring at a screen too much to sitting in the dark. If your eyes are feeling sleepy, you can easily give them a quick refresh. With just a few clever tricks, you can start feeling bright-eyed and bushy-tailed again. Whether your eyes are feeling tired right now or you want some ideas you can use at a later date, these tips should help you out.

Soothe Your Eyes

When your eyes are feeling tired and looking puffy, you need to show them some TLC. There are a few different ways that you can soothe them. Putting cucumber slices on them might come to mind. However, don’t worry if you’ve got an aversion to putting salad on your face. There are lots of other easy tips and tricks you can try too. One of them is freezing spoons and holding them over your eyes. The coldness from the backs of the spoons can reduce swelling and make you feel more awake. You can also use cold (used) teabags to give your eyes a wake-up call too. If you don’t like the sound of those, try looking for a special eye product instead.

Change Your Contact Lenses

Do you wear contact lenses? If you do, your eyes can sometimes start to feel tired and gritty. It can be because your eyes aren’t producing enough moisture to make your contacts comfortable. Eye drops can help with this, but you have to make sure they’re suitable for your lenses. Another thing to do is change your contact lenses. Some of them, such as Acuvue Oasys, are designed to lock in moisture. They can help your eyes feel better by ensuring your contact lenses feel comfortable. You won’t be giving up and wearing your glasses anymore once your eyes feel better.

Take a Break

Sometimes your eyes just need a rest. But that doesn’t have to mean taking a power nap in the middle of the day! While a rest might help, most people don’t have time for one while they’re at work. Instead, take some time to step away from your computer screen on your lunch break. Go for a walk or have a conversation with a colleague so you avoid staring at your phone or computer the whole time. It also helps if you blink a lot, which moisturizes your eyes.


Flex Your Muscles

As well as resting your eyes, giving them a workout could help too. If you try out a focusing exercise, it might help you feel more awake. Focus on something in the distance for a few seconds, then look at something close to you. Do this ten to fifteen times to get the muscles in your eyes moving. It will give them a good stretch, so they don’t feel so sluggish.

Tired eyes can be perked up easily with just a little help. Use one of these remedies to get them feeling refreshed.
