1. Green Tea
Green tea contains bioflavonoids, which have been found to ease both the inflammation and the irritation that is associated with both viral and bacterial conjunctivitis. Matcha green tea, in particular, yields highly effective results.
In order to use this home remedy, simply place a green tea bag into boiling hot water. Remove the teabag from the water and once it is cool to the touch, place it over the affected eye.
