Do your eyes feel irritated, watery, and sensitive to light? If so, there is a good chance that you are experiencing dry eye syndrome.
Dry eye syndrome is a phenomenon that can be caused by a variety of factors such as age, medications, hormonal changes, or a chronic illness. Spending too much time in front of a television or a computer screen can also make your eyes dryer than usual.
Fluctuating or decreasing vision, burning sensation, tingling, redness, fatigue, and sensitivity to light are all symptoms of dry eyes.
Preventions is a valuable ally when it comes to keeping your eyes well hydrated,
* Wearing glasses to protect your eyes from the sun and wind.
* Take frequent breaks from your computer screen.
* Be sure to blink often
* Use a humidifier if the air in your home is too dry.
* Maintain your contacts properly.
Thankfully there are many products that can provide relief.
