Excuse me, I want to ask … My work environment has a lot of chemical dust exposure. Many workers who often complain of pain in the eyes, may experience irritation. How do I deal with irritation or eye pain that I experience every day?
Hello, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
Eyes that feel sore or painful can be caused by several things, including:
- Eye irritation, caused by irritation from the use of contact lenses, entry of foreign objects such as dust, eyelashes, sisake up eye, cigarette smoke.
- Dry eyes
- Eye infections
- Dry or dirty air
Some things you can do at home:
- Clean fluids that come out of the routine routinely
Wash hands before cleaning eyes. With clean hands, clean the eyes that are irritated several times a day. Use different cloths or wipes for each eye. Quickly wash the hands and dispose of the disposable wipes once used. This action is important to prevent transmission.
- Use a compress to relieve irritation
Soak a soft cloth in warm or cold water. Then squeeze and press slowly on the infected eye. Replace cloth immediately before switching to another eye to avoid transmission.
- Avoid using contact lenses
- Avoid substances / substances that cause eye irritation
- Use eye protection when working or on the move
- Enough rest
- Consumption of nutritious foods and drink plenty of water
We recommend that if the complaint does not improve, see a doctor. The doctor will conduct an interview and several examinations first. The doctor will give eye drops according to the condition of your eyes. It's best to avoid using eye drops without consulting a doctor beforehand.
