Tired Eyes Treatment

Asthenopia or ocular weariness is commonly known as tired eyes, eye fatigue and eye strain. It is a quite common but uncomfortable condition in which you may feel tired, burning, heavy or sore.
These sensations usually develop after prolonged or intense use of your eye muscles that control your eye movements, such as:

  • Focusing or staring at a book for too long
  • Extended use of digital devices
  • Excessive or too bright lighting
  • Driving
  • Writing

If you have dry eyes or a vision problem but don’t wear corrective lenses, you may be more prone to eye strain. Eye strain is usually alleviated by resting your eyes and ensuring that they are in healthy condition.
However, it is important to understand that eye strain is a symptom, not a medical condition. While it can be annoying, it is usually not serious and disappears once your eyes are rested.

Causes Of Tired Eyes

Eye strain is a widespread problem that affects people all across the world. This is because we are increasingly relying on computer screens and digital input methods to work, learn, and play. There are a variety of factors behind that tired look:

  • Sleep deprivation
  • Working in dim light or glare from bright lights causes eye strain.
  • Long durations of time spent staring at digital screens
  • Driving for long periods of time
  • Spending time outside without proper eye protection such as wearing sunglasses.
  • Reading, writing, sewing, and other tasks that require long periods of visual focus.
