Good hygiene is key when treating dry eyes, particularly if you’ve been suffering from dry eyes for a long time. By cleaning your eyelids, especially the lid margins, you are essentially removing debris that can build up over time and clog the oil-producing glands in the eyes. When it comes to hygiene there are 3 steps you need to follow in order to keep your eyes clean and prevent them from drying out:
Fill a bowl with boiling hot water and allow it to cool down and become warm.
Add a teaspoon of bicarbonate soda (baking soda).
Dip a clean cotton pad into the solution and wipe your eyelids and eyelashes.
Repeat this process using a clean cotton pad each time.
Do this every day for a week.
