Hello doctor,

I play games on my laptop for hours a day and after a few hours, my eyes become little blurry especially my left eye. It is not that I cannot see a thing but I cannot see clearly either as compared to my right eye. I can see fully clear when it is about 5 to 10 cm from my eye (letters) but it became blurry when the distance increases. Right eye is pretty fine but left eyes are not proper as right. So what kind of medication do I need?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

If you having blurring of vision in one or both eyes first thing to do is get your eyes checked for refractive error, you might need glasses. And glasses will solve your problem. Other cause of blurring after an excess laptop or digital devices use may be dry eyes. People who sit in front of screens have a greater risk of having dry eyes. In such cases, artificial tears are needed. So, the first thing to do is visit your eye doctor and get your eyes examined for glasses and complete eye examination including the retinal exam.
