Eyes Are Blurry And Look Blurry When Looking At Long Distances?
Hello, I’m Ripandi, 19 years old. I want to ask, I have vision problems since 3 months ago and if I look out of the room it seems that my vision is not clear, and if you look from a radius of 10 meters is already very opaque, this is my first incident and I have never had an eye examination, and also I am a content creator on YouTube, so I can not escape from seeing smartphones and computers. Are there any suggestions for this problem? And how to overcome it ?. That’s all I can ask, hopefully there is a response as detailed as possible. Thank you. Thank you …

Hello Ripandi, thank you for using the HealthReplies.com service.
The vision problem that you experience is a very common symptom in school-age children, college, or work, because it occurs due to the use of the eyes for a long duration at close range when reading, staring at a computer or smartphone screen. This is often a dilemma because on the one hand these activities sometimes have become daily necessities, but on the other hand it can have unfavorable effects on eye health.
Some diseases that can cause these symptoms are like myopia, hypermetropia, astigmatism, or a combination of them. These diseases are refractive disorders, which are the failure of the lens of the eye to focus light coming into a certain point right on the retina, so that patients can not see clearly (blurred).
Some things you can do are:
If you often read books, make sure your reading distance is at least 30 cm from the reading, in a place with adequate lighting, and in a good position (not in a lying down position or sitting sideways).
Because your job requires you to be often in front of the screen, use "eye exercise 20-20-20", which is: Every 20 minutes staring at the screen, try to look at objects that are 20 feet (about 6 meters) from you, as long as 20 seconds. The things you see don't have to be exactly 6 meters, you can try to look for distant objects, such as trees, buildings across the street, and so on. If you work in a small room / office, try to occasionally walk outside to rest your eyes every few moments.
Although it is not directly related to the health of the eye lens, consumption of foods with sufficient levels of vitamin A (such as carrots, spinach, beef liver, fish, etc.) can help maintain retinal health.
I advise you to have your eyes checked by an ophthalmologist so that a more detailed examination can be carried out and get an appropriate treatment for your current eye condition.
So much information from me, if there is still something you want to ask, don't hesitate to ask again. Hope this helps.
