The Right Eye Feels Red And Sore From Staring At The Computer Screen Often?
At night, I am a student and a worker, my routine in front of the computer is approximately 10 hours. I want to ask if this is a symptom of Glaucoma?rnrnLast Monday my right eye was red and it hurt, then I tried to give eye drops, then my left eye was itchy and I just realized when I saw the light there was a shadow blue like a rainbow. But the next day I did not see the rainbow again. Is that a symptom of Glaucoma or do my eyes just need a break? Thank you in advance.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Normally, the pressure inside the eyeball (IOP = intraocular pressure) ranges from 12 to 20 mmHg). This increase in IOP is called glaucoma. This condition can occur when the fluid in the eye (aqueous humor) cannot flow properly, causing tissue damage in the retinal nerve fibers (which play a role in capturing light that enters the eye) and the optic nerve (which plays a role in transmitting visual signals in the eye). to the brain). This condition can be caused by a narrow angle that forms between the cornea and the iris or a problem with the trabecular meshwork in the eye that interferes with the drainage of eye fluid. This condition is prone to be experienced by those who are elderly, have experienced injuries around the eyes, have other eye diseases (eg myopia), have a family history of glaucoma, have used steroid drops for a long time, experienced estrogen deficiency at an early age, or also have diabetes. other diseases, such as sickle cell anemia, diabetes, hypertension, and so on.
Symptoms of glaucoma can vary depending on the type and severity. However, in general, sufferers generally feel pain in the eye area, it can also radiate to the head, it looks like a circle around the light, red eyes, nausea, blurry vision, and also a narrowed field of view like seeing in a small hole until blindness.
The complaints you experience can be caused by glaucoma, but can also arise due to other causes, such as keratitis (inflammation of the cornea), astigmatism (astigmatism), myopia (nearsightedness), asthenopia (tired eyes), migraine with aura (primary headache), cataracts (clouding of the lens of the eye), uveitis (inflammation of the uveal tract), and so on.
You should rest your eyes first in 1 -3 days, namely by not reading or staring at gadgets for too long. Compress your eyes if they feel sore using warm water. You can also use drops that contain artificial tears to make your eyes feel more comfortable. Protect your eyes from entering harmful foreign particles, such as dust, smoke, and so on.
If your complaints don't improve, you should immediately consult an ophthalmologist, okay?
I hope this helps.
