Red Eyes In Children Aged 6 Years Due To Playing Gadgets?
Good evening, doc. I have a 6-year-old boy whose eyes are red, I have forbidden him from playing gadgets … but his eyes are still red, but there is no dirt or anything in his eyes. My question is what treatment should I do to get my child’s eyes back to normal?
Thank you for the question.
The eyes of children who are red in children one of the most common causes is dry eyes. This condition can be many possible triggers, including because of the eyes that rarely blink when using excessive gadgets. It could also, red eye in children occurs due to various other factors, for example asthenopia (tired eyes), eye refractive disorders (such as nearsightedness, astigmatism), trichiasis (eyelashes that grow piercing into the eye), xetophthalmia (dry eyes due to vitamin deficiency) A), pterygium (eye membranes arising from conjunctiva overgrowth due to exposure to UV rays and persistent dry air), conjunctivitis (inflammation of the lining of the eye), keratitis (inflammation of the cornea of the eye), subconjunctival bleeding, uveitis (inflammation of the uvea tract), and so.
If your child's complaints occur only 1-3 days later without any other annoying complaints, you should not panic first. Try to resolve the complaint first by:
Avoid giving children gadgets too early Compress the red eyes of children with cucumber slices or a cooled spoon Drops of eye drops containing artificial tears in the eyes of children who are blushing Ask the child not to sleep too late Ask the child to limit physical activity outside the room first, especially when the air is dry or dusty Keep the child away from substances that often make him allergic Give the child lots of foods rich in vitamin A If within 3 days your child's complaints are still not getting better and your child also feels very disturbed because of it, immediately check with your doctor or doctor eyes to be handled further according to the cause huh ..
I hope this helps.
