A popular proverb says “eyes are the mirror of the soul”. When people strain their eyes by reading, watching TV, staying in a room with a lot of smoke, lack of sleep, problems with blood pressure, viral infection or some other activities – the eyes are tired and sometimes redness appears. Tired eyes with the appearance of redness can be caused by external factors (wind, strong sun rays, allergies to cosmetic products, smoke, optical aids, glasses and lenses or household chemicals). A tired eye with redness may be a symptom of illness or trauma. A consultation with doctors is required. However, adjuvants can be used during the basic treatment of any ailment.
