Headache Accompanied By Nausea After Wearing Minus Glasses?
..I am around the 7th year using minus glasses but in the last few months I decided not to use glasses because every time I use glasses my head always hurts with nausea. Since I haven’t worn my glasses, my eyes have been sore and watery every so often. What is the cause?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will help answer your questions.
Minus glasses / concave lenses are used to correct vision in people with nearsightedness / myopia. Nearsightedness is a refractive error of the eye where the point of the image falls in front of the image-capturing cells in the eye (retina) so that the sufferer feels farsighted when seeing objects at a distance.
Myopia correction is performed using a concave lens with the smallest strength that can produce maximum visual acuity, which is 6/6. The meaning of 6/6 is that people with myopia with the help of glasses can see within 6 meters and normal people can see at a distance of 6 meters.
The complaints you experience when you wear glasses are probably due to the correction of the glasses you are using not according to your nearsightedness. Maybe the strength of the glasses is too strong or the opposite is not strong enough to correct your myopia.
The condition of your sore and watery eyes that you experience when you don't wear glasses is most likely related to your nearsightedness, which is that your eyes are unable to clearly see far away objects, so these symptoms appear and need to be corrected with glasses.
However, the symptoms you are experiencing can also be caused by other eye conditions such as:
Dry eye (dry eye) Inflammation of the eye due to viruses / bacteria / fungi Foreign objects that enter the eye Allergies To determine the cause of your complaint, as well as check again whether the strength of the glasses you are wearing is suitable or not with your current eye condition, it's a good idea to consult more continue with the ophthalmologist to be examined directly. The doctor will further explore the course of your disease and will perform a detailed eye examination to determine the exact condition of your complaint. If necessary, the doctor will carry out supporting examinations such as examination of visual acuity, examination using a loop (slit lamp, goniometry), with fluorescein staining, or examination of the inside of the eye (fundoscopy). And after that the doctor will provide treatment for you according to the underlying condition.
The things you need to do to maintain eye health are:
Maintain eye hygiene Avoid scratching your eyes when itching or sore Get enough rest, sleep 7-8 hours a day Eat nutritious foods, especially containing vitamins A, B complex, E, C, omega 3 to support eye health and nerve function, which can You find it in vegetables, fruits, and meat. Avoid staring at the computer for too long. Do the 20 principle, which is every 20 minutes looking at the computer, resting your eyes for 20 seconds by looking at objects that are 20 feet away Avoid consumption of cigarettes, alcohol, and illegal drugs Use sunglasses every time you are exposed to UV light to avoid glare and excessive UV exposure on eyes That's the explanation from me. Hopefully helpful and useful. Get well soon :)
