Around the age of 40, alochaka pitta (a sub?type of pitta associated with vision) tends to become low, and people frequently find that their eyes become irritated. Individuals who work in front of a computer for a long time, watch a lot of TV or movies, or do a lot of driving or close-up work, or who live in a city with high air pollution, may find that their eyes become irritated and build up quite a lot of strain.
The irritation may be due to dryness of the conjunctiva (which results from excess vata), or it may be related to excess hyper?acidity or pitta in the stomach. Or, because the liver and eyes are closely related, high or stagnant pitta in the liver may be a causal factor. It is important to pin down the cause in order to treat it with maximum effective?ness. But most of the following remedies will be helpful in all situations.

If you are using your eyes a lot, perhaps in front of a computer or driving, stop every hour or two for a few minutes to give your eyes a rest.
Use a protective screen on your video terminal, to cut radia ?tion and glare.
If you are doing a lot of reading, stop for a minute or two and refo?cus on a distant object. Every half hour, close the book and look at something across the room or out the window. Doing something different with the eyes is restful and will help prevent eye irritation.
In the midst of a lot of close-up work or sitting at the computer, stop for a few minutes and have a cup of tea: chamomile, comfrey, mint, or even chai (which has some caffeine and will not be as soothing as the other three). This will be relaxing and will help to relieve the irritation and strain.
You can also pre?pare a solution of rose water. Take 1 ounce of distilled or purified water, add 5 drops of pure rose water, and use the solution to rinse your eyes. Use a dropper or an eye cup, and be sure the water is neither too cold nor too hot. This solution will immediately soothe any eye irritation.
Simply washing the eyes with clean water will also help. As if rinsing your face after washing, splash some water onto your eyes, opening the eyes for a moment to allow some water to go in. Or you can use an eye cup and rinse the eyes.
Put a single drop of pure, genuine castor oil (without preservatives) into your eyes at bedtime. Rubbing a little castor oil on the soles of your feet at bed. time also helps; remember to wear some old socks to prevent the oil from staining your sheets.
If your eyes are irritated and bloodshot, drink a cup of fresh orange juice with 1/2 teaspoon of natural sugar and a pinch of cumin.
