How To Deal With Vision Getting Worse?
Hello, I am 20 years old and have bad eyesight. My mother, brother and sister all wear glasses, so I can say that these bad eyesight is also a hereditary condition. My minus always increases every check in glasses optics. Recently, I always felt that my eyes were tired and sore and my vision was getting blurry. However, I am currently working on my thesis so I can’t reduce the intensity of looking at the laptop. What should I do to solve this vision problem? thank you

Indeed, heredity can also be a factor in eye refractive disorders, including minus eyes (nearsightedness, myopia). Not only that, minus eyes also arise due to the influence of the environment, for example work activities that require high accuracy, often staring at gadgets or computers, and so on. This condition, as long as it is handled properly, generally does not limit the sufferer too much in their activities. But indeed, if this minus eye is not corrected properly (for example using appropriate contact lenses or glasses), the eyes will tire more easily. As a result, it is easier for you to experience dizziness, headache, drowsiness, blurred vision, difficulty concentrating, and various other complaints. If this condition appears when your activities require you to stare at your computer or laptop for a long time, of course this can greatly reduce your productivity.
The first step you need to do is, first get your eyes checked by an eye specialist. With a thorough examination, your doctor can identify exactly how sharp your vision is. By knowing the sharp eyesight (vision), then correction of refractive disorders can be done appropriately. If necessary, your doctor may also recommend that you undergo surgery to treat your eye refraction problems. Several other examinations can also be done by doctors to rule out other possibilities that can also cause decreased visual function, for example cataracts, glaucoma, keratitis, and so on.
In addition to seeing a doctor, the following steps are also important so that the complaint improves:
Set good lighting and visibility at work and use the computer. Use the right glasses or contact lenses during your activity (don't take them off, except when sleeping) In the midst of your busy life struggling with your thesis, take the time to sleep adequately and regularly When your eyes feel tired When doing activities, take a short break for 10-20 minutes, close your eyes, while compressing with cold water or cucumber slices, then resume your activity. Limit the use of other unnecessary gadgets.
