Left Eye Can’t Focus After Waking Up From Sleep In A Sitting Position?
Good Afternoon Doctor,
Hello Bima, thank you for visiting HealthReplies.com.
Complaints of blurred vision after waking up do not refer to a typical cause. There are several things that cause this condition, such as:
Orthostatic hypotension, namely a decrease in blood pressure of more than 20 mmHg in systolic pressure and more than 10 mmHg in diastolic pressure caused by a change in position, for example suddenly getting up from sleep to a standing position or from a sitting position straight up. In addition to blurred vision, there are several other accompanying symptoms, such as headaches, weakness, heart palpitations, etc. Dry Eye Syndrome or dry eye disease, namely a lack of fluid in the eyes due to reduced tear production or volatile tears. In addition to blurry or blurry vision, dry eye disease can cause other symptoms, such as eyes feeling hot, sore, itchy, and sticking the upper and lower eyelids when you wake up. It is possible that the condition you are experiencing now is an indication of the increase in the magnitude of the refractive error that you previously experienced. To determine the cause, you should immediately consult an ophthalmologist so that further information can be obtained and an in-person physical examination will be carried out. The doctor may perform a visual acuity test, assess tear production, and look at the condition of the retina with a retinoscope. If the underlying cause is known, then appropriate treatment can be given. In addition, there are the following efforts that you can do, such as:
Doing a healthy lifestyle Get enough rest for at least 8 hours per day Make periodic changes in position, such as when you wake up, do a tilted position first then sit and stand If you are a worker in front of a monitor screen and an air-conditioned room, rest your eyes regularly, 20 minutes after look at the monitor, switch eyesight to other objects at a distance of 6 meters for 20 seconds Increase consumption of vegetables and fruits Maintain eye health. Hope it is useful.
