Dry Eye: Symptoms
Do you often rub your eyelids because your eyes are itchy? Do you have tingling sensations, or very dry eyes?
The most common dry eye symptoms are:
- Itchy eyes
- Sensation of sand in the eye
- Red eyes
- Irritated eyelids
- Swollen eyelids
- Blurred vision
- Light sensitivity
When the eye is healthy, it produces a tear film on its own, which coats and protects the cornea and iris. 💦 In case of dry eye, the tear film may be disturbed , qualitatively (its composition has changed) or quantitatively (it does not produce enough liquid).⚠
If you suffer from the symptoms listed above, you may be suffering from dry eye. So how to treat it? And what can cause it?
Common causes of dry eye
There are many causes of dry eye. While some are simply related to your metabolism or vision, others are caused by outside elements.
Wearing contact lenses
Wearing unsuitable or low quality lenses is one of the main causes of dry eye. 👀 Contact lenses, unlike glasses, are in direct contact with the cornea of the eye. 👓 If they are not of good quality or do not correspond to your ocular need, they can damage the tear film mentioned above. It is therefore essential to be prescribed quality lenses that take care of your eyes.
If despite your precautions, your eyes continue to irritate you while wearing contact lenses, you can put a few drops of saline or drops in your eyes to hydrate them instantly.
Your body is made up of 80% water. 💦 If a large part of this water ends up in your blood, your eyes also require a lot of water produced by your body. In case of insufficient hydration, the mucous membranes are the first parts to dry up: nose, private parts or eyes.
In general, it is recommended that an adult drink 1.5L of water per day to be healthy.🧃 If you have trouble drinking so much on a daily basis, you can eat foods rich in water such as tomatoes, watermelons or melon, or drink infusions without sugar and without stimulants (theine or caffeine). ☕
Dryness linked to eye fatigue
Eyestrain occurs when your eyes are overworked or your environment is unhealthy for your eyes:
- Screen excess
- Little light
- bright light
- Air dry or too hot
- Low air humidity
- Cigarette smoke
By dint of being exposed to harmful elements, your eyes will get tired without protection. You will feel irritation or itching, and if you don't take care of your eyes, you may have red or puffy eyes at the end of the day. 😢
