Eye strain, or asthenopia, is when the eyes get
tired from excessive or intense use. It can be annoying, but it tends to disappear with rest. Although it’s not often a serious condition, eye strain could be a symptom of an underlying problem. Eye strain is known to cause fatigue
, difficulty concentrating
, and headaches
Eye strain may lead to other problems, such as:
• Difficulty Concentrating
• Burning Sensation
• Watery Eyes
• Dry Eyes
• Eye Pain
The first thing you can do is change
your environment and work habits. By doing this you can relieve the pain
without spending money on treatment. If you work on the computer,or watch tv, try taking more eye breaks by looking down the hall or out the window, or by closing your eyes for thirty seconds.
You should get your eyes checked at least once a year, especially as you grow
older. Routine eye exams give you the opportunity to discuss with your Eye Specialist any issues you may be having, and they may enable you to catch any problems in their early stages.
