Are your eyes sensitive to light and have stringy mucus? Here's what you need to know!

Dry eyes occur when your tear glands don’t produce enough tears to lubricate your eyes.

This condition can be uncomfortable and painful.

It can be caused by both medical and environmental factors.

Environmental factors are a common cause of dry eyes.

Avoid cigarette smoke, and stay indoors when it’s windy.

Use appropriate eyewear to protect your eyes from wind when engaging in activities such as riding a bike or motorcycle, skiing, or riding in a convertible.

It may also be helpful to get a humidifier for your home to add moisture to the air.

Your doctor may prescribe eye drops, but before you start stocking up on prescriptions, try these home remedies for dry eyes.

We listed below the Top 8 home remedies you may try to cure your dry eyes:

1. Avoid tomatoes, vinegar, and tamarind.
- These foods, high in acids, can aggravate symptoms of dry eye, says Organic Facts. To prevent the condition, limit your intake of acidic foods and instead eat a diet rich in fatty acids, grapes, and leafy greens.

2. Cucumber
- The old movie stars were doing something right when they lounged with cucumbers over their eyelids. According to Organic Facts, applying freshly chilled cucumber slices to the eyelids has a refreshing, numbing effect.

3. Cold milk
- To relax the eyes and reduce strain, dip a cotton ball in cold milk. Press it to the closed eye for a full ten minutes, as recommended by Organic Facts.

4. Grapes
- Organic Facts reports a study by the University of Miami, which found a diet rich in grapes supports eye health and prevents dry eye.

5. Humidifier
- Sleeping with a humidifier can be a simple lifestyle change that makes a monumental difference for dry eyes, reports Prevention.

6. Lavender oil
- Organic Facts recommends mixing a few drops of lavender oil in one cup of water. Dip a cloth in the solution and press it to the eyes for a soothing effect.

7. Salmon and flaxseed 
- Eating more flaxseeds, salmon, sardines, and other foods rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids can relieve dry eye symptoms, reports Mayo Clinic.

8. Warm washcloth 
- To control inflammation that blocks the flow of oil to the eyes, wash your eyes and eyelids frequently. To do this, Mayo Clinic recommends holding a cloth treated with warm water over the eyes for five minutes. You can dab a bit of baby shampoo or mild soap to the cloth and massage your eyelids to cleanse the eyes.
