Sore eyes? Dry eyes? Headache?
This is the place where you can ask questions and advices how to go about with your eye problems. Since i spend a lot of time in the computer ( after work), I decided to offer free advice here.
Computers and cellphones are now basic parts of our lives, from kids, students to working adults. Needless to say, technology has been the most common cause of eye strain, from simple dry eye to red eye and headache.
Pain around the eyes and headache are the 2 most common complaints. It could be due to dry eye and eyestrain caused by excessive computer use for several hours. Or you might need an eyeglasses! The most inexpensive way to prevent dry eye is to blink! We often forget to blink if we are in front of the PC or TV. If you have problems somewhat related to the ones i mentioned, just ask away and i will try to help. Also, the safest eyedrops to start with is lubricant or artificial tears.

Most common is eye infection or sore eyes. My advise is to stop rubbing your one red eye with a hanky because chances are you will rub it in your other eye and you will get both eyes infected! Not only that, you have to understand that you get sore eyes thru contact or touch, not by just looking. To avoid spreading it within the household the rule is "no touch". And of course it has to be treated with antibiotics eyedrops for 7 days.
It is still best to have an appointment with your eye doctor as soon as you can.
