I have myopia with an eye power of -5. In this pandemic, I am working for six to seven hours on electronic devices. I have mild headaches on and off. It comes and goes on its own at any time. I also have drowsiness and sometimes, I also have heaviness in my head with a problem of slight blurred vision. I am worried about my condition and I want to know whether I have a brain tumor or some other issue. Kindly help.

People having longer screen time face this problem. It can be simple fatigue like an eye muscle strain. You need to take small breaks during your screen work and remind yourself to blink also. While having longer screen time, your blinking rate gets decreased and it results in causing dry eyes. At this age, you do not need any artificial tears. You have to change your blinking habits and your problem will get resolved hopefully. If your issue persists even after following all these simple steps, then you need to consult an ophthalmologist to check for any changes in the glass prescription and your doctor will provide you the best treatment. Do not be worried as it is not a big issue. Most of the digital screen users face these problems as we have so many screens around us such as mobiles, computers, and television.
