Lifestyle and home remedies
In addition to following your doctor's instructions for care, you can try these techniques to help reduce glare or soothe your eyes.
- Apply over-the-counter (nonprescription) salt solution (5 percent sodium chloride) eyedrops or ointment.
- Wear wraparound sunglasses with ultraviolet protection.
- Dry your eyes with a hair dryer. Hold it at arm's length and direct warm — not hot — air across your face two or three times a day. This helps remove excess fluid in the cornea, which decreases swelling.
