Eye Strain and Eye Injuries: Main Image

Although homeopathic substances listed in this article are generally not known to cause serious side effects, their effectiveness has not been demonstrated by scientific research. Consumers should check labels carefully, since a homeopathic product that is not diluted, or not diluted enough, may contain ingredients that cause allergic reactions, side effects, or interactions. It is always advisable to discuss any new treatment program with your healthcare practitioner.

For more information, see Homeopathy FAQs, "What Is Homeopathy?," and “Using Homeopathy with Professional Guidance” in Homeopathic Medicine.

Long hours staring at a computer screen, reading, writing, doing beadwork, sewing, repairing electronics equipment, or any close and detailed work can lead to eye strain from overuse. Soreness of the muscles around the eyeballs, weak or blurry vision, burning, watering, and oversensitivity to light are common symptoms. Discomfort from minor eye irritations (from smoke, pollutants, smog or pollen), slight abrasions (from contact lenses, sand or dirt), or bruising injuries can also often be relieved with homeopathy. If any eye has undergone a traumatic injury, or if any symptoms are unusual or distressing, see a physician right away.
