The Eyes Often Feel Itchy, Watery And Blurry Vision?
Malem, I am 21 years old, my eyes almost every day itching sometimes during the day, evening and always when I want to sleep and runny and then swollen, so my eyes shrink. I also have trouble sleeping, always sleeping after the morning prayer. First the right eye then move to the left eye. I used to check the eyes before, he said my eyes minus the right 0.25 -0.5, then I never use glasses. Why is that? Is it because I like reading sleeping books or because I use excessive gedget? Is it because I don’t wear minus glasses? Please help with the enlightenment. thank you
Hi Wahyu, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com
Some diseases can be related to your complaint, including:
1. Tired eyes, often experienced by someone who stares too long at a cellphone or computer screen, reads a long time in a place with poor lighting, drives a vehicle when traveling long distances and someone who has a sharp decrease in vision but does not use glasses. Lack of sleep will increase the risk and aggravate the condition. Tired eyes will be marked with watery eyes that feel itchy or painful or sore. Can also be accompanied by blurred vision and sensitivity to light.
2. Refractive disorders are conditions caused by light entering the eye that cannot be focused so that it falls in front of or behind the nerve of vision. There are 4 types, namely myopia (nearsightedness), hypermetropia (farsightedness), astigmatism (cylindrical eyes) and presbyopia (old eyes).
3. Allergic conjunctivitis, is inflammation caused by an allergic reaction, which occurs in the outermost layer that covers the front of the eyeball and the eyelid. The disease will be marked red, itchy and watery eyes without a sharp decrease in vision.
You should have enough time to sleep, because during sleep the eyes can rest. In addition, do not linger stare at the cellphone or computer screen. Rest your eyes every 20 minutes for 20 seconds while staring at the cellphone or computer screen. Adjust lighting and visibility with the screen, which is 50-60 cm. Blink often. If you need to use eye drops that your eye doctor recommends for you. You can also compress your eyes with a warm cloth that is placed on top of the eyelid when closing the eyes. Use glasses or contact lenses to overcome your minus eye.
Consult with an ophthalmologist if complaints with your eyes are getting annoying or not improving with the above treatment.
Thus hopefully useful.
