Refresh Eye Drops
I am having OD upper eyelid swelling, tenderness along the upper lash line, and aching. I use refresh eye drops and optifree wipes.
Sty, blepharitis: Your upper eyelid swelling may be due to inflammation of the eyelid marginal oil glands and skin at the base of the eyelashes.

"Pink : "pink eye" is a generic term used for viral infections of the eye. Typically it is self-limiting but highly contagious. In the most common presentation if left untreated it will resolve by itself. So as far as natural treatments for pink eye, i would only recommend artificial tears or saline solution to rinse or debulk the viral load.

After 30 min of flying, I get dry, bloodshot eyes. Don't wear contact lenses on flight. I use refresh dry eye drops but the redness stays. Any ideas?
Dry air: Most airline cabins are pressurized to feel as if they're about 8000 feet in altitude. As such, the air is very, very dry. Keep using your drops, and consider closing your eyes (maybe using a sleep mask) and sleeping while you listen to some music. There is a moistening ointment, I believe, which might last longer than the drops while you're flying. ...Read more
