Home Remedies for Irritated Eyes

Do you have irritated eyes? Do you wish it would stop, but aren’t sure exactly how to get the pain to go away? Are you trying to avoid going to the doctor and having unknown chemicals flushed into your eyes? Well, there’s good news for you. You can actually help reduce, and perhaps even eliminate your eye irritation with some home remedies.

Eyedrop Mixtures

Although it may be really easy to stop at the store and buy an over-the-counter eye drop mixture, you can also create some of your own! One involves the simple recipe of milk and honey. First, warm the milk and then add an equal part of honey to your cup. Mix the concoction together until the honey is no longer chunky, but rather a smooth part of the milk. Using an eyedropper, apply about 2-3 drops to your eyes daily. For another mixture, mix 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar with 1 cup water. While using a cottonball, gently wash your eyes with the liquid. Or, baking soda can work wonders as well. Mix ¼ teaspoon baking soda with 1 cup water and fully flush into your eye.


Many different liquids can be used to help restrain irritated eyes. One would be Witch Hazel. Simply pour the liquid onto a cottonball and gently push onto your eyelids. Its many healing properties just might do the trick! Or, mix Aloe Vera juice with water. Once the mixture is frozen, place it over your eyes. This will create a soothing effect for the irritability. For another remedy, make a cup of chamomile tea and filter it a few times through a fine strainer. Make sure you can’t see any chunks, because you don’t want them to go into your eyes! Let the mixture sit until it becomes lukewarm. Then, gently wash your entire face with it, making sure to pay special attention to your eyes. This will help reduce the pain and soothe your irritation.


A very surprising method for healing irritated eyes includes metal spoons. First, take four metal spoons and place them in water. Let them chill in the refrigerator for 10-20 minutes, and remove. Place one spoon curve downward over each eye, leaving two to switch when they warm. Continue doing this until pain and swelling decreases. Another extremely popular remedy to cure irritation in the eyes would be to make cucumber eye masks. In order to do this, cut two very thin slices of cucumber, and chill in the refrigerator. Close your eyes, and place over your eyelids for about 10 minutes.
