How to stop stinging eyes?

Asked by Sophief (6681points) May 5th, 2010

I’ve been a little upset for most of today and my eyes are stinging like crazy. They don’t usually stop until the next day.

Is there anything I can do, or put on them to stop them stinging?

Visine?!? It gets the red out ;-)

A warm wet towel compress over your eyes will help relieve the soreness from being upset and help you relax. Lay down, place it over your eyes and take a well deserved break.

@Cruiser I’ll do that now, thanks.

warm tea bags, or even cool cucumbers. Close your eyes with one of these one them for 10 to 15min. your eyes will feel much better.

@Sophief: If you have been crying hard, that will irritate your eyes. There are good OTC drops to get temporary relief. Ask your pharmacist.

They have something at most pharmacies called “Artificial Tears”. They work like eye-drops, but a lot better.
