Though the comfort of the house is warm and nice, an increase in screentime has also been noticed. This leads to eye-related issues and weakening of the eyesight as well.

Taking it to Instagram, Dr Nitika Kohli, an Ayurvedic Doctor shares valuable inputs on how to take care of our eyes, naturally. Her caption read “Our eyes are being used more than ever, especially with the increased use of mobile and laptop screens in the last few decades.

Here Are The Important Ayurvedic Eye Care Tips by Dr. Nitika Kohli:

  • Everyday in the morning after waking up (either before or after using the toilet), fill your mouth with water and hold for a few seconds with your eyes closed. Spit it out. Repeat it 2-3 times.
  • Triphala: Using Triphala water eyewash or an eyewash cup is also beneficial for eye health.
  • Shatkarma: Ayurveda describes six purification techniques to clean the body, remove toxins, strengthen it and make it free of diseases. Out of them, neti and tratak work as the best Ayurvedic remedy for dry eyes and eye health.
  • Splash your eyes and face with cool or normal water 10-15 times. Repeat again in the evening when you return from work.
  • Anjana: Anjana is an Ayurvedic preparation applied to the inner part of the eyelids to promote good eye health.
  • Caution: Never use hot or icy water on the eyes. Also, avoid abrupt temperature changes. For example, if you’re hot and sweaty, wait 10-15 minutes until your body adjusts before splashing cold water on your face and eyes.
