Good afternoon, thanks for the question
Complaints of the eye feels lumpy like sand may be caused by dry eyes. Dry eye is a state of dryness of the corneal surface and
conjunctiva which results from reduced production of tear components. Another cause is
increased evaporation of tears due to environmental factors in the home, office or due to eyelids that cannot close completely.
In addition to complaining that the eyes feel itchy and sandy, complaints can be accompanied by a burning sensation, redness, pain and glare.
Risk factors for dry eye include:
1. Age> 40 years
3. Systemic diseases, such as: Sjogren's syndrome, progressive systemic sclerosis, sarcoidosis, leukemia, lymphoma, amyloidosis, and hemochromatosis
4. The use of contact lenses
5. Use of computers for a long time
The diagnosis is made through physical examination and support if needed. The treatment for this condition is by applying artificial tears, which are carboxymethylcellulose or sodium hyaluronic acid eye drops. Consult with an eye specialist if complaints do not decrease after optimal therapy or complications arise such as keratitis or infection.
That's all, hope you can help
