    There are several home remedies that you can try in order to alleviate the uncomfortable feeling of dry and burning eyes. Firstly, place a warm washcloth over your eyelids for ten minutes a few times a day, which will help open the clogged oil glands of the eyelids. Then try purchasing artificial tears, a saline mixture that can be used several times a day and mimics real tears, providing soothing relief. Use only commercial, preservative-free products, as preservatives can damage your eye. Make sure to keep heating and cooling vents pointed away from your eyes. While it may provide temporary relief, it isn't helping your eyes at all. Wear eye-protecting wraparound sunglasses or goggles when outside, since the wind combined with the sunlight can cause your dry eyes to become even more sensitive. Get a humidifier for any rooms you are frequently in; keeping the room moisturized helps to keep your eyes moisturized as well. Keep hair dryers as far away from your eyes as possible and stay away from any type of smoke, including cigarette smoke.

    Here are some situations and the solutions I can think of, maybe kind of helpful to you. Firstly, if something get into your eyes, like chili sauce, use a wild baby shampoo to wash the eyelids carefully and massage the lower eyelids area, wash your face with clean water thoroughly to remove the shampoo, but make sure your finger as well as hands mast be clean, you know in case of the bacterial infection. Secondly, if your burning dry eyes are caused by a dry environment, why not running a humidifier in your bedroom or workplace? When filled with water, a humidifier releases water into the air, which can create a moist environment for you. And wear sunglasses to reduce the exposure to the sun, dust and wind when outdoors. Thirdly, if you read books, watch TV or stare at the computer screen for a long time, you may not blink often enough. Leave these stuffs for a few minutes periodically, give your eyes a rest and blink your eyes as much as possible to increase the production of your tears and then make your eyes feel comfortable.

    The direct way is to let your eyes keep moist or wet. Actually, to gape and yawn is one of those most healthy therapies. But it is not so easy for one to yawn whenever you want.

    For me what has helped is living on milk for eight years. I find when I eat solid food my eyes hurt. But when I live on cow milk, mostly nonfat, my eyes feel okay. So basically I live 90 or 100% on cow milk, mostly nonfat. For six years living on cow milk was sufficient to deal with my eye pain. Then about two years ago I found I was tired and I couldn't shake it. So I added going to daily Catholic Mass. And that has been sufficient, the combination of going to Mass and living on cow milk is enough to keep me reasonably healthy and my eyes feeling okay without drops. I can't exactly recommend living on milk because it hasn't been proven to be a safe diet by medical authorities. But it has worked wonderfully for me, and I don't think my body works too differently than other people's.
