Is It Possible To Play Gadgets When Experiencing Subconjunctival Bleeding?
Good evening, I want to ask when I have subconjunctival bleeding, can my eyes look at the screen of an old gadget? Does it affect the eyes or not? Please answer, thank you.
Hello Siti, thank you for using HealthReplies.com.
Subconjunctival bleeding is bleeding caused by rupture of blood vessels under the conjunctival eye lining. These hemorrhages are mostly spontaneous cases or unknown causes, and the rest cases are related to:
High blood pressure
Drug side effects
As a result of coughing or vomiting
Lack of hemoglobin levels (anemia)
Inflammation of the conjunctival lining (conjunctivitis)
Foreign objects that enter the eye
Basically, this subconjunctival bleeding has nothing to do with gadgets. However, staring at the gadget screen for a long time can cause several problems in the eyes such as tired eyes, red eyes, nearsightedness, dry eyes to mild irritation.
This subconjunctival hemorrhage does not require special treatment because the bleeding will disappear or be absorbed within 1-2 weeks. If the bleeding continues for more than 2 weeks and the vision has decreased, I suggest that you consult an ophthalmologist for a thorough examination such as visual acuity examination, and fundoscopy, so that treatment can be given according to your diagnosis.
The things you can do to reduce your complaint are:
- Applying "20-20-20 eye exercise", which is taking 20 seconds to see objects as far as 20 meters every 20 minutes when using a gadget.
-Placing a laptop or computer monitor about 50-60 centimeters from the eye, with a light laptop should be medium and there is lighting in the room (above) laptop.
- Enlarge the font size on the gadget and adjust the distance of approximately 30-40 cm from the eye
- Exercise regularly and get enough rest
- Eat nutritious foods
Thus the information that I can convey, hopefully can help you.
