Excessive activity with gadgets can make the eyes rarely blink and prone to dryness (xerosphthalmia). Dry eyes can make you feel sore, itchy, achy, prop up, and your vision can be disturbed. Dry eyes can also occur due to exposure to a dry environment (such as if you are active in an air conditioned or polluted environment), disorders of the tear glands, irritation, allergies, side effects of drugs, and many other possible causes.
Not only dry eyes, your activities are struggling with the computer is also prone to triggering eye refractive disorders (such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism), tired eyes (asthenopia), migraines, tension headaches, and other health problems.
Handling of dry eyes due to excessive computer use you can do with the following steps:
Drop artificial tears (eye drops containing artificial tears, no other ingredients) when the eyes feel dry
Live more often
When the eyes feel tired when staring at the computer, close your eyes first, compress with cold water or cucumber, then begin to return to activity
When activities in an air-conditioned room, use an air humidifier
Do not rub your eyes excessively, especially with dirty hands
Enough sleep and regular
Do not smoke or consume any drugs
It is better if you do not carelessly use eye drops (except artificial tears) without a doctor's prescription, especially for long-term use. If the complaint does not improve with the treatment efforts above, it is advisable to go to your doctor directly or see an eye specialist so that you are given the right treatment.
I hope this helps.
