Is eye wash 3-4 times a day safe with water?

No: Tap water contains many chemicals and even germs that can be harmful to the eyes. If you have dry eyes, use artificial tears to soothe them. You should have an eye exam to determine other causes of irritation that are leading you to want to wash your eyes so much. You may be better treated with other simple regimens. ...Read more

My tear production report is quite ok but at times i need to blink so frequently with an intense desire to pour water in eyes.

Allergies or pollution: If your tear production is adequate, and you're having these symptoms, it sounds like a reaction to inflammation occurring on the surface of the eye. Most common things include allergies and /or pollutants. Allergy drops will work for your allergies. Pollutants are a little bit more difficult. Some allergy drops will help with the symptoms, and artificial tears can help wash away some of the noxious stimuli. ...Read more

In Southeast Asia, people often put rose water drops in their eyes. is it safe? Are there any benefits of using rose water in the eyes?

It Depends: I would be concerned about applying rose water to the eyes. In particular I would be concerned about how it was prepared and if any of the preservatives would interact with your eyes. The eye's don't need any sort of supplement. Your natural tears are the best form of hydration for the eyes. If you are having red eyes due to irritation I would advise eye drop created specifically for that purpose ...Read more

Will putting a raw honey and water mixture in my eyes damage my vision? I have a good reason for using the mixture, i just want to make sure its safe.

Dangerous practice!: This is a potentially dangerous practice. Tap water, or even distilled water is not sterile and contains potentially dangerous pathogens including a parasite called acanthamoeba which can cause severe damage and permanent visual loss. Honey is an irritant and should not be instilled in the eyes. You should stop this practice immediately and see your eye doctor. ...Read more

I got a little drop apple cider vinegar and water in eye it slashed from the cup i was useing i washed it out will my eye be ok?

Should be OK: If you irrigated the eye after getting the vinegar cider in it, the eye should be OK. It may be irritated and injected from the vinegar and even the irrigation itself. Usually these symptoms will resolve. If any symptoms persist, or if there is pain or loss of vision, seek medical attention promptly. This could include care by an ophthalmologist, an ER, or an urgent care center. ...Read more

My 8mo baby takes a bath sitting, and when i rinse, i pour water from her head. Is it fine? Wont the water get inside her ears?

My 8mo baby takes a bath sitting, and when i rinse, i pour  water from her head. Is it fine? Wont the water get inside her ears?

Won't hurt...: If you are concerned, you should help minimize getting water in her ear by shielding it and pouring the water more on that side of her head, and then do the same thing on the opposite side of her head protecting her other ear. Even if she gets some water in her ear, it will eventually drain out and dry. ...Read more
