I want to explain the easy home remedy for eye strain at this time.
Can you see clearly?
I use the computer to work more than 3 hours every day, and at the end of the day, my eyes become very tired and get red and dried.
Eye strain is one of the most common problems in people’s lifestyles nowadays because we use digital devices like smartphones, computers, tablets, etc.
It is called digital eye strains (DES). More than 50% of people with blurry vision and dry eyes are computer users, especially hard workers like you.
When you get dried eyes, you can’t concentrate, can you?
You would feel terrible and irritable not only for your eyes but also for your job or even relationships.

What is the Easy Home Remedy for eye strain?
The method is massaging acupressure points around the eyes.
There are many capillaries around the eyes. When your eyes get stressed out, blood circulation worsens, causing eye strain.
Acupuncture or Acupressure increases blood circulation and helps people with dry eyes.
UB2, Yu Yao, SJ23, ST2, and Tai Yang are great acupressure points for digital eye strain.
These points were used in this study and improve the patients with dry eyes, according to Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine in 2015.
The study applied two different clinical research groups with a sample size of 96 with dry eye.
Forty-four patients were in the acupuncture group, and 52 patients were in the control group.
The acupuncture group received acupuncture treatments three times per week for 12 acupuncture treatments per patient.
Participants did not use any other type of therapy to treat dry eyes. And, the group with acupuncture treatment improved their dried eyes.
What are 5 acupressure points for eye strains?
- Yu Yao
- Tai Yang
UB2 is at the inner corner of the eyebrow. When you touch it, you feel the tiny depression.
Yu Yao is an extra point and is located at the middle of the eyebrow.
SJ23 is at the outer corner of the eyebrow.
Tai Yang is also another extra point and is located between the outer corner of the eyebrow and the outer corner of the eye. It is at the temple of the head.
ST2 is straight below the eye on the cheekbone. Usually, you can feel depressed.
How do you press acupressures?
You might think acupressure is difficult. Or, is it painful to rub? Or, you don’t know where exactly the points are.
Acupressure points are easy to find. Use your index or thumb, and press these points gently from different angles. You can feel the most tender spot, but don’t push too much. The correct pressure is that it hurts, but it feels good. That is your acupressure point.
Let’s massage each point for 30 seconds with the right pressure every day.
In conclusion, I want you to do the home remedy such as massaging these 5 acupressure points for eye strain every day for about 30 seconds to increase the blood flow.
On top of them, please do not forget that you have to have good sleep, and light exercise like yoga, walking, even meditation, etc. There is a natural Chinese herb called Ming Mu Di Huang Wan that is also great for dry eyes and blurry vision.
I hope it helps your condition, and you will be able to have a good time.
