2. Refresh Dry Eyes
Sjögren’s Syndrome dries out the tear ducts, reducing levels of lubrication in the eye socket. Dry eyes lead to rubbing, itching, and disruptions in vision. Injuries to the cornea can occur from persistently scratching dry eyes. Therefore, its best to keep the eyes lubricated with a natural eye drop solution.
Dab your finger in some extra-virgin coconut oil and lightly coat the inside of your eyelids and tear ducts. Use only enough to moisturize the sensitive skin around the eye. If you use too much oil, press your eye into a soft paper towel to remove the excess.
Over-use of pharmaceutical eye drops can damage your vision. Ask your local homeopathic center about a natural, organic eye drop solution to help you manage the symptoms of dry eyes. Research shows links between the consumption of Omega-3 essential fatty acids and improved skin health. Add a tablespoon of cod live oil to your daily diet to benefit from the moisturizing effect of DHA and EPA essential fatty acids.
