When my son came down with a severe case of pink eye, his eyes were extremely irritated.  I didn't know what to do, but a neighbor told me about this strange (and somewhat gross) home remedy.  The best thing for pink eye is to put your own urine in the eye.  Place a few drops in each eye and you'll see an immediate reduction in inflammation and the infection.

Lemon Juice

While this sounds incredibly painful, this is actually one of the most effective home remedies for pink eye or any eye irritation.  All you have to do is squeeze lemon or lime juice in your eye.  Don't rub the eye; rather, just squeeze a generous amount in your eye.  Be sure to keep a towel close by, because it will itch.  Don't close your eye once you put the juice in; instead try to keep the eye open and continue to move it around.  Try to perform this home remedy whenever you feel an eye infection starting, and you'll be able to stop it quickly.  This should be repeated about every twelve to twenty four hours until the irritation clears up.

Breast Milk

When my daughter was only two months old, she came down with a horrible case of pink eye.  A friend told me that the best thing to do for such a young baby is to squeeze breast milk into the eye.  While I thought this was odd, I also didn't think that it would hurt anything.  I tried this in the morning, and the irritation and infection was cleared up that evening.  This is a wonderful home remedy for irritated and infected eyes in young children.  It involves no doctor, and no harmful medication.

Hot peppers are great in food, but their juices in your eyes can be awfully irritating.  If this happens, all you need to do is follow this simple home remedy.  To relieve the pain, all you need to do is eat a bit of salt.  This will dissolve in a few seconds.  The sodium will help your eyes to flush any toxins and irritants out.  This helps to reduce the burning sensation very quickly.  It's important to remember that you should not put salt in your eyes.

If your eyes are irritated and puffy, try this fantastic home remedy.  I love to take tea bags (it needs to be a caffeinated variety of tea) and soak them in warm (not hot!) water for a few minutes.  I then will place a few drops from the tea bags into the eye.  This is my favorite home remedy for irritated eyes.

Bilberry (vaccinium myrtillus) is a wonderful natural remedy for irritated eyes.  This is commonly used and is very well known.  Not only is this herb wonderful for soothing irritated eyes, it also helps to strengthen the capillaries in the eyes and helps to prevent infection and disease of the eye.
