How Does The Eye Solution Often Blink And Feel Achy?
Assallamualaikum, good afternoon r nI want to ask, my eyes often blink, sometimes it feels sore in my eyes, this has been going on for years, where should I go for treatment? Ophthalmologist or neurologist?
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Basically, people normally blink 15-20 times a minute. That means it can be 1,200 times per hour and 28,800 times per day. Of course this is in a situation where the person is unconscious. When realized, the number of blinks per minute can be different, and tends to be less. The purpose of flashing can be due to lubricate or wet the eyes, and can be influenced by fatigue, stress, injury to the eye, certain medications, and diseases, such as habitual tics, refractive disorders, intermittent exotropy, and disorders of the eyelids.
To be able to ensure this you should first check your eyes at the eye doctor because the majority of causes are due to eye disorders. Your doctor will first try to assess whether you really blink more than normal or not, then see if there are abnormalities in the eye that might be the cause. If there is none and your complaint persists, then you can then try to check yourself with a neurologist.
For now, try to remember back when you started feeling excessive blinking and what had been the trigger. Is it stressful, or lacking in nutrition, lack of sleep or after your eyes are tired. Try to avoid triggers, and consult a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
