Dehydration and Dry Eye
Hello Dry Eye-rs! Dr. Travis Zigler here and I wanted to go over one of the first things that I always teach my patients on treating your dry eye and that’s dehydration. There are a lot of different ways that you can keep hydrated throughout the day.
One of the first things that I do every morning is at about 7:00 AM. I drink about 32 ounces or more of water before eating anything. We also do our exercise routine first thing in the morning after we finish reading, meditation, and breathing. When I hydrate I like to fill my Camelback up with just a little splash of apple cider vinegar and then I fill it up with water from my Berkey water filtration system. A Berkey water filtration system gets all the contaminants, chlorine, and heavy metals out of the water.
Either after or during my hydration time, I am going to go on my exercise routine for about 30 minutes to an hour of just a nice brisk walk. Start out with five minutes per day and build up from that and then after that I’m going to drink a big jug of water as well. I have a 32 ounce jug that I keep next to me all day. So, step one of treating dry is hydration and then after step one you can read the rest of the steps within my worksheet. Just click the "learn more below" and sign up to get emails with all our information about how we treat our dry eye patients.
