Treat red eyes by yourself
In most cases, red eyes and any problems are short and can be treated yourself without the need to see a doctor. The symptoms usually disappear within a few days. A rule of thumb is usually that if the problems have not disappeared after a week, it is time to book an appointment with a doctor.
The most common is that the problems disappear by themselves, but if the eye or eyes are red, you can for example:
- — Wash your eye with lukewarm water to remove any dirt and bacteria.
- — If the eye is sticky and/or sticky with secretions, it can be difficult to get rid of this just by rinsing the eye. Instead, use a cotton pad that you have dipped in water.
- — If you have red eyes due to dry eyes, you can use Swiss Clinic Hydrating Eye Drops.
