Eye problems are often related to the liver in herbal medicine.
Treatment Plan for Eyes, inflammation–acute
If the eyes are red and inflamed due to external irritants such as pollen or smoke, then an anti-inflammatory and antibacterial eyewash can be useful.
Cooling and opening liver herbs (dandelion, burdock, artichoke leaf, gentian) can help work with the associated internal imbalance.
A dietary regime of fresh fruits and vegetables and grains and legumes for several weeks is best. Avoid all liver-heating and irritant substances, such as alcohol, refined sugar, red meat, spicy foods, and pharmaceutical and recreational drugs.
