Your eyes will become more tired under poor lighting as the eyes have to work harder to distinguish letters, colors, and objects.
Â Some symptoms of tired eyes include :
â€¢ burning sensation
â€¢ heaviness in the eyes
â€¢ sore eyes
â€¢ watery eyes
â€¢ dry eyes
â€¢ blurred vision
â€¢ uncomfortable sensation of the eyelids
â€¢ pressure in the eyes
Sometimes, eye fatigue can be accompanied by headache, dizziness and migraine, and occurs more often with age. In rare cases, eye fatigue is due to the presence of a disease or medical treatment. It can also be due to :
|Â ||Â â€¢ inadequate sleep |
â€¢ excessive crying
â€¢ inadequate oxygen supply to the cornea
â€¢ reading for extended periods
â€¢ exposure to bright light or glare
â€¢ straining to see in very dim light
â€¢ air conditioning
â€¢ tobacco or cigarette smoke
â€¢ industrial dust or other dust
â€¢ spending several hours a day in front of the TV or computer (causes poor blood circulation and poor lymphatic system resulting in dark, tired and baggy eyes)
Unfortunately, the size of your pupils will get decrease with age. Hence, youâ€™ll require more light to illuminate the retina for easier reading in old age. To combat this, regular eye exercises can help to strengthen the muscles in the eyes responsible for focusing. Also known as vision therapy, eye exercises should only be undertaken on the advice and monitoring of an ophthalmologist or optometrist. Apply compresses of warm water on the eyelids if the eyes are dry.
â€¢ Use eye drops that will temporarily relax sensitive and irritated eyes.
â€¢ Create a proper humidity in the room at night, in order to avoid waking up with red eyes.
â€¢ Place cucumber slices ,overnight tea bags or cold compresses to soothe your eyes
â€¢ Avoid eating too much salty food as they cause water retention, which in turn results in puffy eyes.
