Exercises & Pressure Points for Dry Itchy Eyes - Irritated, red, blurry and tired eyes.
Dry Eye Syndrome or Keratoconjunctivitis Sicca is, simply, when you have chronically dry eyes. Accompanying symptoms would be eye irritation, redness, discharge, and eyes that get tired easily. Blurred vision can be another problem for people who suffer from Dry Eye Syndrome. The hope for you with these exercises and acupuncture points for Dry Eyes is that you can do this instead of artificial tears or eye drops. Even though they can be good in a pinch, frequent use of these products can make your eyes drier in the long run because they can wash away your eye's natural lubricants. Be careful of eye gels, artificial tears and drops that "take the red out". Only once in a while when you really need it. Otherwise, try these eye exercises to help bring your own innate lubrication onto the surface of your eye. A lot of these acupuncture points, which you will be massaging or putting sustained pressure on, are based on a 2010 study from Acta Ophthalmologica.

Many of you may have dry eyes from allergies, pregnancy, vitamin and mineral imbalances, post surgical dry eye, medications like antihistamines, antidepressants or blood pressure meds or conjunctivitis that might not have reached a chronic state.
