For example, you can just intake more vitamin c. first you should know that in addition to the benefits to the immune system, vitamin C may also help prevent additional inflammation in the eye.

So you can take between 250 to 500 mg of vitamin C twice daily, and then it will do a good job to your eyes.

    Pink eyes is one of the most commonly seen problems we might have because most of us don't take our eye health seriously and have bad use of eyes. From what I know, vitamin C is useful, and so do other vitamins. But, they are not medications, and you just need some treatment in the hospital so as to get thoroughly cured.
