3) Eye Strain
Symptoms: Eye strain can result in blurred vision, weepy eyes, scratchy eyes, headaches and eye twitching.
Possible Causes: Eye strain can be caused by undiagnosed defects in vision, incorrect glasses, a change of glasses and illness. Prolonged, concentrated use of the eyes, for example spending a long time editing documents or videos, playing computer games and watching TV, can all lead to eye strain.
Solutions: Have children’s eyes checked regularly to ensure their vision is not impaired. Schedule regular checkups with your oculist to make sure your glasses are still right for your eyes. Take regular breaks from eye intensive work and learn some simple eye relaxation exercises.
