Hello Arif,

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.


The eye pain that your mother is experiencing can be caused by various conditions. If you have checked by a doctor and it is said that the tear glands are not active, it can be said that your mother has dry eyes. Dry eyes can be caused by a variety of conditions. Some things that can be considered the causes and factors that affect the occurrence of dry eyes are as follows:


Age over 50 years


Hormonal changes


Use of certain drugs such as allergy drugs or steroids, anti-hypertensive drugs


Lack of certain nutrients, especially vitamin A.


Spend a lot of time outdoors or in air-conditioned rooms


There is irritation due to allergies such as allergies to dust, wind, smoke or other types of foreign substances.


Too long using a computer or gadget


The therapy given to your mother is a type of eye moisturizer known as artificial tears and is indeed the treatment of choice for dry eye conditions. However, it should be noted that other conditions and avoid other risk factors that trigger dry eyes. Here are some tips that can be followed are:

Avoiding windy air or for too long in an air-conditioned room
Using a warm compress around the mayta
Avoid using makeup or cosmetics around the eyes
Not watching television or watching computer screens or gadgets for too long

That's what I can say, hopefully it's useful.
