Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I am physically active, but my eyes feel extremely tired after waking up and continue for the entire day. As a result, I have difficulty opening my eyes and experience a strain.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

Your symptoms suggest refractive errors, glaucoma, stress, or allergy. Are you watching a mobile or computer screen for a long time? Do you feel any floaters or blind spots in your vision? Do you have a headache or vomiting?

I suggest Carboxymethyl Cellulose eye drops thrice daily and capsule Vitamin A 2000 IU once daily (consult with a specialist doctor, talk with him or her and take medicines with their consent). Do breathing exercises and massage your eyes regularly.

Consult an ophthalmologist for examination if there is no improvement.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
