  3. Ultra-violet rays prematurely age your eyes. Make sure you wear your sunglasses when going outdoors.
  4. Cigarette ash and automobile pollution irritates your eyes and reddens it. Do not wear contact lenses in such places.
  5. Try cupping your palms around your eyes, gently without allowing any light for 10 minutes, three times a day.

  7. Take couple of ice cubes, cover them in a cotton cloth and place it on your eyes. Relax. Let it be for 10-15 minutes.

Likewise, rotate your head start with the chin down, raise it to your left shoulder, swing your head back, the other shoulder and lower it. Do it the other way round too.
