5 Ways to Relieve Stress induced Eye Strain
If you've had a busy or hectic day, chances are drinking water wasn't your top priority. If you feel as if your eyes are irritated (watery eyes, blurred vision, constantly itchy,) it's very likely you're dehydrated. Before doing anything else on this list, be sure to drink some water.

Whether you've been staring at a computer screen for a while or you work outside- excessive amount of light doesn't do any favors for someone with eyestrain.
