Flashburn (AKA: Welder’s Eye Burn)?

I remember my father having to pause, annoyed, as he rested his eyes from a sudden incident of “welder’s flashburn.” This is like a sunburn to the eye, the more serious burns resulting in pain and redness. A proper assessment by your doctor is highly recommended for this event; however, few will actually go. To preserve your vision for your senior years, here are 4 practical treatments that offer relief and effective recovery for an eye flashburn/sunburn:

  1. Raw potato poultice – shred potato, clump it together and apply to closed eye(s)
  2. Vitamin A oil drops – apply to open eye(s)
  3. Cold pack – apply to closed eye(s) for 10 minutes
  4. Euphrasia 30Ch homeopathic – take as per label

FYI: potatoes can stain purple or black.

Consult your ND or MD as to whether any of the above remedies are right for you.
