Do Not Rub Your Eyes

It can be extremely difficult not to rub your eyes, especially if you are tired or suffer from chronic dry eyes. However, constantly rubbing them can actually make your problems worse. You also run the risk of damaging the eye further with too much pressure. If you do feel you have red or itchy eyes, simply splash them with cold water to try and relieve them. If that does not help, try closing your eyes and putting a wet towel over top for 5 or 10 minutes
