    Our eyes feel uncomfortable when we get eye irritation. And the causes of eye irritation are various. For some not serious eye irritation, you can solve it at home as the following: 1. Avoid tabacco smoke and sun exposure when you get eye irritation. 2. Use a cool moist washcloth to cover your eyes to make your eyes feel much better. 3. Use homeopathic eye drops 3 to 5 times a day. 4. Wear sunglasses when you go out. And the recovery time depends, some of the eye irritation could be recovered after several minutes or several hours, but some of the eye irritation need several days for completely heals.
