Tonight, I thought I would ask my 20-month-old child, his eyes were red and always blinked like dry eyes, so I was in a room with AC and a few days ago he liked to play cellphones and watch YouTube, what eye drops are suitable for children I dock and how to handle it, thank you

Hello Ira, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.


Complaints experienced by your child may be caused by several possible conditions such as:

Dry eye
Eyestrain
Inflammation of the lining of the eyes (conjunctivitis) due to allergies, bacterial or viral infections

In the meantime because your child's complaints are not included in an emergency, you are still allowed to use artificial tear drops that are sold freely on the market at a dose that is on the packaging.


In addition, you are also encouraged to avoid your child using any gadget, especially for a long time because it is based on research, children under 2 years are not recommended to use any gadget or if you want to give any new gadgets allowed to be given at the age of 1.5 years with a duration of less than 1 hour per day.


If your child's room uses air conditioning and a terrace that the air in the room becomes dry, you can use humidifiers as an alternative to help make the air in the room not too dry and not cause irritation to your child's eyes. Also avoid your child rubbing his eyes and keep your child's eyes from being exposed to direct sunlight. Also pay attention to whether there are conditions or other things that trigger or aggravate your child's complaints.


If the complaint does not improve after you make the above recommendations for at least 2-3 days, or other complaints arise such as eye discharge appearing, your child's eyes appear swollen, your child's vision suddenly decreases, immediately take your child to the eye specialist for further examination of funds handling.


I hope this helps.
